    He's a full season plus an offseason from ZZ Top.

    He just passed Grizzly Adams though ...

    Never noticed it before, but Verlander does a funny little leg kick w/ his lower left leg. It's like he flexes it and extends it- can't recall seeing that before

    Maybe we can teach Hughes to do it also....

    Miguel Cabrera turned 30 yesterday. If you call that the midpoint of his career and double his career totals, he would finish fourth in hits, sixth in home runs, and second in RBI.

    Edit: He wouldn't finish that high if other active players got more hits, home runs, and RBI.

    Bryce Harper's Opening Day jersey was auctioned off and he didn't even know it.

    http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/mlb-bi...7814--mlb.html
    They just take my jersey away from me and don't ask if I want it or anything! First opening day! Jersey gone!

    I don't know the protocol for Major League Baseball auctioning game-used items, and apparently Washington Nationals superstar Bryce Harper doesn't know, either. Harper obviously was unhappy when he found out the Nats jersey he wore for opening day had been taken and auctioned online — for $13,025, no less. And just after the auction ended, of course. With more of a warning, Harper could have used some of Jayson Werth's money to buy the jersey.

    Also, a head's up: Keep an eye on Craigslist for petri dishes of the flu Harper had earlier this week when he went 4 for 5 with vomit.

    I never even thought that something like this could happen. A guy steals second, then he steals first and then he gets thrown out at second.

    I already knew it was possible to steal first.

    The top three hitters in MLB in batting average all changed teams during the offseason and the player with the fourth best batting average, Adrian Gonzalez, was traded less than a year ago.

    Tim Hudson tried for win 200 yesterday but he didn't come close. Atlanta sent up the minimum 27 hitters and lost 6-0 to Pittsburgh. Atlanta had two hits and both of players with hits got out on double plays.

    I'm not sure how it's legal.
    7.01 A runner acquires the right to an unoccupied base when he touches it before he is out. He is then entitled to it until he is put out, or forced to vacate it for another runner legally entitled to that base.

    Rule 7.01 Comment: If a runner legally acquires title to a base, and the pitcher assumes his pitching position, the runner may not return to a previously occupied base.
    Segura had legally acquired second base, and the pitcher had thrown a pitch. How is it legal for him to return to first?

    http://espn.go.com/mlb/blog/_/name/s...op-jean-segura links to the rules which state when a player is out. http://mlb.mlb.com/mlb/official_info...s/runner_7.jsp says:

    "(i) After he has acquired legal possession of a base, he runs the bases in reverse order for the purpose of confusing the defense or making a travesty of the game. The umpire shall immediately call “Time” and declare the runner out;
    Rule 7.08(i) Comment: If a runner touches an unoccupied base and then thinks the ball was caught or is decoyed into returning to the base he last touched, he may be put out running back to that base, but if he reaches the previously occupied base safely he cannot be put out while in contact with that base."

    On another note, today Washington won 7-6 at the Mets and did something for the seventh time since 1916 according to the baseball-reference Play Index. Washington had 7 hits which were 4 home runs and 3 doubles. Therefore they had at least 7 hits, and at least 4 home runs, and no singles, which was last done on July 10, 2010 by Detroit.

    Edit: Out of the first seven games to end today, six were decided by 1 or 2 runs for a total margin of 8. The other game was the Angels beating the Tigers 10-0. Rick Porcello allowed 9 runs in 2/3 of an inning and his last pitch was a grand slam by Mike Trout. Detroit threw 56 pitches in the first inning. Porcello had a Game Score of -3, which is the 160th Game Score that bad since 1916 but only the third one of them to be done in less than 1 inning. Before today, the last two pitchers to have Game Scores of -3 or worse against the Angels were both Yankees, Orlando Hernandez in 1998 and David Wells in 1997.

    Now Jayson Stark says somebody told hom that Rule 7:01 should have been applied and Segura should not have been allowed to go back to first. Jayson Stark says MLB is also still deciding how to score the play. I wonder if MLB could make the official scoring of the game say that Segura got out on the play for a double play rather than saying he returned to first. Obviously if he had scored later that would be impossible, but since he got caught stealing it wouldn't be a big deal other than to deny the pitcher and catcher a runner caught stealing, deny the catcher an assist, and deny the second baseman or shortstop who tagged him out a putout.

    Toronto's Aaron Loup, who made a throwing error against us on Saturday, got a loss without allowing an earned runs in his second consecutive appearance. After a throwing error that should have sent the game to the tenth inning, he gave up a walkoff single. Loup is at least the second pitcher this year to have consecutive losses without allowing an earned run in either game. Phillippe Aumont of Philadelphia also did it.
