    The Oakland A's will be sad to see the Astros leave town but they do get them 13 more times this year.

    I see Boston lost both games of their doubleheader with KC on Sunday ... the second on a bases-loaded walk (by Andrew Miller) in the tenth inning. So despite their own loss, the Yankees pick up a half-game and are just a game and a half out of first.

    I hope it's not too soon for me to be happy about that.

    My heart goes out in every way possible to the city of Boston. If I were, or am, able to to help those in need, count me in. Whatever it takes. We are all one people.

    But I will not root for the Red Sox to win. Ever. Under any circumstances.

    Haren has not looked good yet this year. He did manage to keep the game from getting away from him completely last night, his control was hardly a thing of beauty. Nats starters haven't been nearly as impressive so far.

    I rarely look at standings now. In June is when I start taking a peak, but really not until July is when I start looking at them on a consistent basis.

    Against the Braves no less.
    40 pitchers, ever, have an ERA+ of 130 or higher for their career. 15 have 140 or higher. 3 guys have 150 or higher - one is right at 150, the second place guy is at 154, and Mariano Rivera is at 205.

    Haren looks flat-out awful. But other than him I think Nats starters actually look quite good. Not as impressive as last year, true, but the first half of last year they were just absurd. I guess we can't really expect them to replicate that.

    Detwiler and Zimmermann have been lights-out (just saw boxscore from Zimmermann's one-hitter tonight-- on 91 pitches, against the Reds!). Gio has been very good except for one terrible start (hopefully that's an aberration). Strasburg is more of a mystery. He's 1-4 with a 3.15 ERA, which is bizarre. I think honestly he deserves a better record and a worse ERA than he has. He's been undone by his teammates' crucial errors a couple of times (that Ryan Zimmerman error against the Braves), but he also seems timid out there. He keeps starting players off 1-0, 2-0, and nibbling around the edges of the plate. If I were Stephen freaking Strasburg and I threw 97 mph, I'd challenge players more. But Strasburg seems a bit delicate in a lot of ways...not at all a headcase, but I remember last year he got overheated/dehydrated, he got IcyHot in his jockstrap, he was too cold to get a grip on the ball, etc. For all his (brilliant) talent, he can get thrown off by little things like the weather or a teammate's error. But he's really something special, and I think he'll turn it around.


    Sorry for the long response...the Nats are my "other" team, and I always relish the chance to talk about them!

    They're my other team too. I guess after I "ragged" the starters a little, they got their act together. Zimmerman, Gonzalez and Detwiler almost make you forget about Strasburg. If he starts to roll, look out. They might have four 20 game winners.

    I hope Zimmermann does not have the yips. The throwing errors were disturbing, but with the back acting up, I'm hoping some time off will clear everything up.

    Jordan Zimmerman gets overlooked in that rotation but his stats since 2011 are really solid. He doesn't K a ton of hitters but he doesn't walk many either.

    You two have them mixed up. It's Ryan Zimmerman (one n) and Jordan Zimmermann (two ns).

    Can we say the Angels are done already? It's still verrrry early, but 9-15 will be nearly impossible to overcome.

    I stand corrected. Obviouly if the Sawx winning helps us, then I make the exception. I really despise the Sawx, but not enough to "hurt" my team (as in your example).

    The Mets scored 1 in the top of the 15th to take a 3-2 lead. Then gave up 2 in the bottom of the 15th. To the Marlins.

    Kinda makes you feel a little bit better about tonight's loss to Houston.

    No, it really doesn't. But I like the story.

    The Angels got rid of Torii Hunter, Kendrys Morales, and Vernon Wells - who have gone on to post 2.2 WAR so far. The entire Angels lineup has produced 2.8 WAR.

    Ervin Santana has also outperformed the Angels pitching staff.

    So far, not much as materialized as the so-called experts predicted. The Sox are not in the cellar, but the Jays are. LAA's line-up was to be the next Murder's Row, NYY didn't stand a chance with all their HRS hitters gone. The Royals are leading the Central, Pirates are .5 behind St. Louis and the Dodgers are 3.5 out. I know it's early, but all these inter-league games are screwing everything up.

    The Giants/Diamondbacks series so far have been fantastic to watch. All six games have involved comebacks in the late innings, some of which were then blown in extras. Giants first baseman Brandon Belt was responsible for three of those comebacks, two of which were in this series. The Giants starting pitching is pretty off so far this season, aside from Madison Bumgarner, but they have come from behind to win 9 of their 16 victories. Fun stuff.

    The other Brandon on the Giants, Brandon Crawford, is also another nice player for them.
