Stat Line Of The Night

  • Stat Line Of The Night — 9/13/11 — Dustin Pedroia

    Stat Line Of The Night — 9/13/11 — Dustin Pedroia

    If you gave the Boston Red Sox batters a choice of which starting pitcher in the Majors they would like to face most, there is a good chance they would choose Brandon Morrow of the Toronto Blue Jays.  Going into last night’s game, Morrow was posting a 13.83 ERA in three games this season against […]

  • Stat Line Of The Night — 9/12/11 — Tom Brady

    Stat Line Of The Night — 9/12/11 — Tom Brady

    As good as Aaron Rodgers looked during Thursday’s season opener, he still only looks like the second best quarterback in the NFL following the performance we were treated to from Tom Brady during the Patriots’ Monday night romp over the Miami Dolphins.  But rather than simply provide you with Brady’s numbers from last night and […]

  • Stat Line Of The Night — 9/11/11 — Cam Newton

    Stat Line Of The Night — 9/11/11 — Cam Newton

    When Cam Newton was drafted with the first overall pick of the 2011 NFL Draft by the Carolina Panthers, many people thought this experiment would end up a lot like the Vince Young experiment ended up for the Tennessee Titans (he was released this off-season after five years of futility).  Newton proved that might not […]

  • Stat Line Of The Night — 9/8/11 — Aaron Rodgers

    Stat Line Of The Night — 9/8/11 — Aaron Rodgers

    And honorable mention should go out to Green Bay Packers rookie wide receiver and return specialist, Randall Cobb, who tied an NFL record with his 108-yard kickoff return touchdown and also added a 32-yard touchdown reception.  However, it is hard for us not to give “Stat Line of the Night” honors to the man who […]

  • Stat Line Of The Night — 9/7/11 — Guillermo Moscoso

    Stat Line Of The Night — 9/7/11 — Guillermo Moscoso

    For the second time in the last three days, a Major League pitcher took a no-hitter into the eighth innings, and for the second time in three days they couldn’t hold on through the final two innings.  However, that didn’t stop us from awarding the White Sox Zach Stewart with “The Stat Line of the […]

  • Stat Line Of The Night — 9/5/11 — Zach Stewart

    Stat Line Of The Night — 9/5/11 — Zach Stewart

    You may not remember, but Zach Stewart was a centerpiece in the trade that sent pitcher Edwin Jackson to the Toronto Blue Jays, who then flipped him to the St. Louis Cardinals for outfielder Colby Rasmus (in addition to others not worth mentioning).  So who won that trade you ask?  Edwin Jackson has looked pretty […]

  • Stat Line Of The Night — 9/1/11 — Albert Pujols

    Stat Line Of The Night — 9/1/11 — Albert Pujols

    When the Cards entered their three-game series against the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday, it appeared as though the Brewers had the NL Central locked up.  That no longer appears to be the case, thanks to a sweep by the Cards. On Tuesday it was pitcher Jake Westbrook providing the unexpected run support with a go-ahead […]

  • Stat Line Of The Night — 8/31/11 — Jake Westbrook

    Stat Line Of The Night — 8/31/11 — Jake Westbrook

    Sitting 9.5 games back of the Milwaukee Brewers for top spot in the NL Central heading into yesterday’s game, the St. Louis Cardinals needed to make the most of their next eight games, as five of them were against those very same Brewers they are chasing.  They were able to get the job done last […]

  • Stat Line Of The Night — 8/30/11 — Roy Halladay

    Stat Line Of The Night — 8/30/11 — Roy Halladay

    We all know what Roy Halladay is capable of doing from the pitcher’s mound.  He entered last night’s game against the Cincinnati Reds with a 15-5 record and a 2.56 ERA, and he reminded us all once again why he is one of the best pitchers in the Majors, recording seven shutout innings of two-hit […]

  • Stat Line Of The Night — 8/29/11 — Randy Wells

    Stat Line Of The Night — 8/29/11 — Randy Wells

    Randy Wells of the Chicago Cubs is 6-4 with a 5.06 ERA on the season and has never made an all-star game or won a Cy Young Award.  Tim Lincecum of the San Francisco Giants is 12-11 with a 2.58 ERA on the season, and has won two Cy Young Awards and made four all-star […]

  • Stat Line Of The Night – 8/25/11 – New York Yankees

    Stat Line Of The Night – 8/25/11 – New York Yankees

    I guarantee the New York Yankees did something yesterday that you, your dad and your grandpa have never seen before in a MLB game. The New York Yankees made history in their rout over the Oakland A’s by slugging not one, not two, but three grand slams. The Yankees, who trailed by six runs at […]

    Amanda ParkerHere are some of the best sports plays for all you gamblers out there.

    The Game: Boston Red Sox @ Texas Rangers

    The Pick: Under 10

    The Reason: Another game in which the lineups, stadium and the sight of Andrew Miller might coerce you into picking the over, but I’m telling you that this one will be under. Andrew Miller has actually been fairly good in his last four starts, putting up a 3.86 ERA in them.

  • Stat Line Of The Night – 8/24/11 – Alex Avila

    Stat Line Of The Night – 8/24/11 – Alex Avila

    This is not your typical state line of the night. Detroit Tigers’ catcher Alex Avila was only 1-4 last night. So, you’re probably wondering, why does he belong here? It’s because he’s a catcher and his one hit went approximately 420 feet from home plate into the seats (after traveling to the moon). Further, while […]

  • Stat Line Of The Night – 8/22/11 – Cliff Lee

    Stat Line Of The Night – 8/22/11 – Cliff Lee

    Cliff Lee is quietly putting together a season better than the one he had in 2008 when he won the Cy Young Award. The only reason it’s relatively quiet is because he’s pitching on a staff full of Cy Young candidates, who are arguably having better seasons than Lee. Yes, the Philadelphia Phillies’ staff is […]

  • Stat Line Of The Night — 8/21/11 — Albert Pujols

    Stat Line Of The Night — 8/21/11 — Albert Pujols

    With the official “best player in baseball” set to become a free agent at the end of the 2011 season, people started to worry when Albert Pujols got off to an excruciatingly slow start back in April and May. More recently, however, the Cardinals first baseman has started to look more like himself. Last night […]
