I had the chance to listen/watch most of the 3 game sweep of the A's. It can be summed up in two words: good pitching.
This new guy they brought up, Robertson, he's got the goods.
Hughes moved to the 60 day DL.
I'm lukewarm at best with the Sexson signing. I'm not sure someone with an OBP of less than .250 is something that we need added to the lineup. I think if you give Wilson B. a consistent rep, he'll more than match Sexon's production for the year.
Going forward, I would look to use Jorge as a DH or PH only. His effectiveness as a catcher for this season anyway is over. Molina is a proven commodity and can be a very effective everyday catcher. (How clutch was he these last two games?)
MLB's home plate was circulating that the Mariners were trying to put a deal together with the Yanks for Ichiro.
Moose has 20 in his sights - and he's going to get it with ease. It'll be a good story when he does.
Headed into the weekend I don't know who I was pulling for more, the Shark or Duval. Kind of anti-climatic finish to The Open.
The Dodgers are tied for first in the West - good for Joe Torre. Even though no one is above .500 out there, I still view that division as stronger than the NL East.
