some games are still in progress
–Jose Bautista has 31 home runs. I know this is said and said again, but dude has 31 home runs!
—He saw 23 pitches, total.
—-In four ABs, Lyle Overbay, Bautista’s teammate saw nine pitches.
–The Diamondbacks’ ace right now is Ian Kennedy, who couldn’t even make the 2008 Yankee rotation as a fifth starter. Just sayin’.
—The Arizona bullpen hasn’t imploded. Yet.
—-The Mets bullpen has—oh wait, that is predictable.
–Roy Oswalt was the victim of a 9-3 (that’s right fielder to first base) put out.
–Armando Galarraga is having a pretty horrible year luck wise–tonight he left the game after being hit by a Kevin Youkilis line drive in the fifth inning.
–This: “Braves starting pitcher Kris Medlen left the game in the fifth inning after being hit in the right arm with a Johnny Cueto pitch.”
–Jose Valverde threw FIFTY NINE pitches. FIFTY NINE! He’s a closer!
–The bottom of the eighth in the Rockies’ game.
