    When AJ left, I said I wished him well.
    He always gave it 100% and when he didn't do so well, he stood up and took responsibility for his perfromance.
    I'm very happy he's doing well for the Piratates. And I hope he leads them to a division title and/or a playoff birth. Pittsburgh was once a great and proud franchise.
    Plus - if the Orioles finish below .500 and the Pirates don't, that'd make Baltimore a more futile franchise!!! And that couldn't happen to a nicer guy than Peter Angelos.

    I'm sure in AJ's mind he that is how he is rationalizing the difference in performance, but I suspect it has a lot more to do with pitching in the NL Central than the Pressure of Playing in New YorkTM.

    Actually, I noticed their bullpen. Everyone they were trotting out had an ERA of 1-point-something.
    And now, they have added a couple of young guns who can touch 100mph - hope we get to see them on the YS mound this weekend.

    And, believe it or not, they CAN score on the road...

    Mostly due to a 21-run performance against Texas.
    Even if you take away those 21 runs, they are still 6th in the AL in runs on the road - a HUGE improvement over the last several years. Baby steps... (literally!)

    When the Angels got Greinke I really thought they were going to go on a tear and put themselves in a commanding position for a playoff spot, maybe even challenge the Rangers for the AL West. A lot of us immediately found ourselves imagining them as a potential playoff opponent. Some people were already matching them up against the Yankees and declaring them favorites.

    But as it turns out, they're currently out of the playoff picture, sitting in third in their division after a road trip in which they lost series to Texas, Chicago, and Oakland. (Next up for them, a date with Felix Hernandez.) Outside of Jeff Weaver their starting pitching has been pretty unspectacular.

    I didn't see an Angels thread and didn't want to start one, so I'll just ask here ... how good of a team are the Angels, anyway? Should we expect them to make the playoffs, or not?

    Of the teams in the thick of the wild card race, they and Detriot look the most balanced between offense and pitching. Oakland & TB are top heavy with pitching but can't hit and Baltimore is doing it with smoke and mirrors. While they are not a lock I'd put them and Detroit (or Chicago if Detroit get's really hot) as the favorites to be the two WC teams.

    Thank you Mariners. I was hoping for a pipe dream when I noticed the score going into the bottom of the 9th and that dream came true.

    Single, sac bunt + error, SF, single. Ninth-inning, come-from-behind, one-run victory without beneit of a HR.

    I wish the Yankees could be as good as the Mariners.

    Does that include their win/loss record?

    I didn't think it necessary to be so explicit, but that was precisely my point. The Mariners' Ws may be morally superior to the Yankees' Ws, but I'll take sheer quantity over moral character any day.

    Well, other posters have to be explicit to me as I turned off my sarcasm meter a while back.

    If Girardi was a better manager, he'd call for more error inducing bunts.

    Oh man, I hope he gets it. It's fun when some no-name gets a perfect game but I LOVE it when a stud pitcher does it.

    I'm rooting for Felix and I'm bothered that they are jinxing him! Icon in the corner stating his is perfect through 7 IP. Leave it alone!
    Hoping Rivera can pitch forever!

    The icon hates this. He always goes on TV and radio and talks about the other perfectos and no-no's he has been in the corner for. He can get really angry at people that believe in jinxes.
