    Go Buccos! Will this be the year the streak ends? Probably not, but at least Fielder and Pujols can't beat up on our pitchers this year. That's a start....right?

    Based on the strength of the lineup, top 4 is a given. Whether or not it all meshes with a new manager is another story, of course.

    My sister needs some help. She just had to rush her cat to the emergency clinic because he was peeing blood. The little guy needs a $2500 surgery to survive, and she has no money left after paying for major car repairs last week.

    I would if Boston was up yet haha. I'm just not positive they're even top 4 this year. Not sure we make the playoffs. Though I guess we could be the fourth best team in the league and still miss the playoffs

    Half the lineup today is Sweeney, Ross, Saltalamacchia and Mike Aviles. A question mark in Youkilis and a smaller question mark in Ortiz. Ugh I hope we at least don't start off 1-10 again

    Yeah I'm not all that confident in the Sox this year, either. I hope I'm wrong though. Pray I am.

    Mr. Perfect Jose Valverde blows his first save of season after going 49-49 last year. Sweeney repents for giving up an 8th inning triple by hitting a 9th inning triple

    He was absurdly lucky last year. Like 30 of those saves featured the tying run in scoring position.

    Lose: to suffer defeat, to misplace (Ex: "I hope I don't lose the match." "Did you lose your phone again?")
    Loose: about to slip, to release (Ex: "That knot is loose." "Loose arrows.")

    Yeah, there's a reason I targeted Valverde in zero leagues. He was way, way worse than his surface stats indicate. I was waiting for the fall after the ASB last year, but he just beat the odds and keep that up for a full season

    The weirdest stat of all-time might be the disparity in his performance in save situations and non-save situations. His ERA was like 4.00 higher, his WHIP was .50 higher and I got very confused.

    It's just odd how that can happen. Like when someone will hit .150 with RISP, but .340 with bases empty. Or when Dice-K manages to go basically a whole season without allowing a bases-loaded hit

    This Rays/Yanks game was highly entertaining.

    And Mariano Rivera (one of the few relievers left alive/unimprisoned in the league) is now sporting a killer 54.00 ERA.

    On July 19th last year they were 51-44. The last time they were above .500 was 54-53 on August 1st.

    Ugh. Damn it Rockies blow a great pitching performance by Nicasio. Kid comes back from having his damn neck broken by a line drive, throws 7 innings, gives up 1 run and no walks and then you give it up in the 8th on an error by the third baseman.

    *sigh* It'll be a long season.
