    But what's sad is hearing the announcer the end of that video, as Strasburg finished six shutout innings with a 1-0 lead: "The Nats will pinch hit for him ... well done, young man."

    Thanks to the archaic practice of letting pitchers hit, NL teams can't get full value out of their best pitchers.
    He threw 108 pitches in those 6 innings. He probably wouldn't have come out for the 7th in the AL either, especially at this time in the year.

    Especially not since he's the Nat's prized prospect who is on a ~165 IP limit this year in his return season from TJS.

    Good point -- I looked at the video for a pitch count and didn't see it, so I wasn't sure. Anyway my broader point still stands, even if this game wasn't a good example.

    It was bad enough when the leagues were more separate, but with interleague play supposedly increasing again next year it gets even more moronic.

    I dont think i've ever seen a change move quite like Strasburg's did yesterday. Almost looked like a lefty slider.

    Good description. Combined with the curve, it was unfair.

    The fastball looked really, really straight though. Am I wrong about that?

    There doesn't appear to be a whole lot of movement on it, but i think the velocity and command he has on it combined with the threat of those other two pitches probably makes up for that.

    I didn't see the game yesterday, but in the past, his FB does appear to lack movement at times. Then again, I've seen it "hop" before too.

    Didn't see but how much movement are you going to get at 98?
    I mean even IF his FB is straight coupled with his CU/CB it doesn't matter beacuse you can't sit on it. If he was throwing just a FB at 98 it would be different if it was straight.

    Rays lose to Detroit 7-2. The Yankees are now only a game back of them despite that opening sweep.

    Exactly what I was hoping for (and predicting) right after the sweep. Now they just need to go about their business and keep winning series.

    I totally agree with your broader point.

    Ian Kennedy is really solid.

    Btw, before anyone complains about our offense it might be beneficial to check out athe season stats for the Padres lineup. Barf.

    Agreed. I still think the D'Backs are going to outperform projections this year. I think they're one of the teams to beat in the NL. I know I'm in the minority, but I think they are WS contenders.

    BTW - thank goodness for Greinke and IPK today. I needed that in our h2h matchup.

    Lol @ Greinke. Pissed off at the tabling of contract negotiations I'm guessing.

    I like the D-Backs too. Like IPK and Hudson. Was never impressed with Cahill but if he can recapture some magic he's not a bad back-end type. Imagine if they held on to Haren.

    You've got company on the D'backs. I've heard at least 2 commentators (I think one might have been Aaron Boone) say they like this team's chances.

    I read on Twitter that Josh Lueke was getting booed since he entered (no pun intended). Anyone see the game?
