    The Stat Line of the Night — 9/6/10 — Danny Espinosa

    Rookie Danny Espinosa was called up to the big league squad for the Washington Nationals just last week when rosters were expanded.  As well as he was playing in Triple-A, no one including himself thought that he was going to be having games like this so early in his major league career.  His huge night […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 9/6/10 – Felix Hernandez

    It hasn’t been an easy year for the Seattle Mariners, but one bright spot has been the pitching of Felix Hernandez.  King Felix has had a  phenomenal year, putting up ridiculous numbers and mowing down batters left and right.  He has a 2.30 ERA, a 1.09 WHIP and has struck out 209 this season.  Unfortunately […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 9/2/10- CC Sabathia

    I think it’s safe to say that the New York Yankees don’t miss the old Yankee Stadium. They have the best home record in the American League and have won 16 straight in “new” Yankee Stadium. It helps when you have a big gun like CC Sabathia on the mound. Those wins just seem to […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 9/1/10 – Tim Lincecum

    Even the best pitchers can go into a funk. Tim Lincecum just had a stretch where he took five losses in a row and hadn’t won a game in over a month. Last night the Giants battled the Rockies in San Francisco and Lincecum was dueling against Colorado ace Ubaldo Jimenez. Lincecum finally found his […]

    Those poor unfortunate Jays.  Had they not been placed in the AL East division, they may actually have a shot at the post season.  But that is not the case, and now they find themselves in fourth place in their division with a 69-63 record.  That’s right.  Six games above .500 and it is only […]

    The Stat Line of the Night — 8/30/10 — Alex Rios

    The Chicago White Sox are in a tough pennant race.  If they want to have any chance to make the post-season, they will need to hit the ball much better.  Enter Manny Ramirez, acquired from LA to give the Sox the huge middle of the order bat they need.  Unfortunately, Manny wasn’t suited up for […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 8/29/10 – Cole Hamels

    Sitting two games back of the Atlanta Braves in the NL East, and holding a 1.5 game lead over the San Francisco Giants in the wild card race, wins have never been more important for the Philadelphia Phillies.  Earning a victory yesterday afternoon would not be an easy task against the NL West leading San […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 8/26/10 – Edwin Jackson

    The Stat Line of the Night – 8/26/10 – Edwin Jackson

    Edwin Jackson blew away the Orioles last night. It wasn’t a no-hitter like he threw on June 25th as a member of the Diamondbacks, but it was close and in some ways more dominant. Jackson pitched 8 shutout innings for the White Sox, allowing just 3 hits while striking out 10 and walking just 2. […]

    With the St. Louis Cardinals slumping as of late, the Cincinnati Reds were looking to take advantage and build upon their lead in the NL Central.  After the Cards fell to the Pirates, the Reds had the opportunity to increase their division lead to 3.5 games, and that is exactly what they did, thanks to […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 8/24/10 – Gio Gonzalez

    The Stat Line of the Night – 8/24/10 – Gio Gonzalez

    The Oakland Athletics have had some of the best pitching in all of baseball this year.  Unfortunately their offense has been unable to come through when its needed most, or come through at all for that matter.  Last night was a different story.  With Gio Gonzalez on the mound dealing, the A’s bats finally came […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 8/23/10 – Jose Bautista

    What can the league leader in home runs do to help your team against the vaunted Yankees?  How about secure all your RBIs and 2of your 3 runs in a 3 to 2 victory.  That is what Jose Bautista did last night.  The league leader in home runs with 40 hit 2 more last night […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 8/22/10 – Jason Heyward

    Yesterday marked the end of an era in baseb, all, as long-time manager Lou Piniella managed his last game in baseball.  He had announced that he would retire after the season, but in the days leading up to Sunday’s game he decided to call it quits sooner.  He was a great manager for many years, […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 8/19/10 – Paul Konerko

    Just when Joe Mauer and the Twins were beating up on the White Sox and extending their AL Central lead to 5 games, the White Sox decided to break out their big sticks and take it to the Twins — big time. Leading the White Sox hit attack was Paul Konerko. Konerko had five hits […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 8/18/10 – Joe Mauer

    Joe Mauer may not be dominating like he did last year in his MVP season, but he’s still having a tremendous year for the first place Minnesota Twins. Last night he helped his ballclub increase their lead over the flailing White Sox. Mauer gave Gavin Floyd and the rest of the Sox pitchers fits. He […]

    The Stat Line of the Night — 8/17/10 — Jim Thome

    What may have looked like a normal divisional series between the White Sox and Twins before the season started has become the series to save the White Sox season, or destroy it.  When the Twins came to town on Tuesday, they were holding a 2 game lead over the Sox in the AL Central.  After smoking […]
