    The Stat Line of the Night — 8/16/10 – Victor Cruz

    Can you hear that?  It’s the sound of footsteps rumbling down the gridiron.  Sure its preseason football, but at least the long wait is over to watch some NFL on television.  The New York Giants played the New York Jets at the new Meadowlands last night and as usual in a preseason game, the starters […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 8/15/10 – Kevin Slowey

    The Stat Line of the Night – 8/15/10 – Kevin Slowey

    Had it not been for an elbow injury sustained earlier in the month, Minnesota Twins’ pitcher Kevin Slowey may have very well been the sixth hurler this season to record a no-hitter (or seventh, if you wish to include Armando Galarraga’s should-be perfect game).  Unfortunately it was not meant to be.  Slowey finished the seventh […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 8/12/10 – Pat Burrell

    The Stat Line of the Night – 8/12/10 – Pat Burrell

    The rumors of the expiration of Pat “The Bat” Burrell’s days as a big league power hitter must have not got back to him. Burrell has dialed it back to his glory years recently and is helping the Giants make a push to win the NL West. The Giants were playing the Cubs in San […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 8/11/10 – Adam Wainwright

    The St. Louis Cardinals had the brooms ready in anticipation of a sweep of the Reds in Cincy. The way Adam Wainwright was pitching, the Cardinal hitters could have used them as bats and still won the ballgame. Wainwright was brilliant as usual in shutting down the upstart Reds and the Cards completed the three-game […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 8/10/10 – Felix Hernandez

    Throughout the 2010 MLB season, it has often appeared as though the only chance the Seattle Mariners have to win ball games is if their pitching staff can shut out their opponent.  With a league worst .236 batting average and 369 runs for, to say that the Mariners’ bats have been sleeping all year would […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 8/9/10 – Bobby Abreu

    The Stat Line of the Night – 8/9/10 – Bobby Abreu

    Bobby Abreu was recently moved to the leadoff spot bymanager Mike Scioscia and the Angels have looked like a completely different team since that happened.  Is it too little too late in the AL West?  Most likely, as the Rangers seem to have a firm grasp on the division.  It is a good sign for […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 8/8/10 – Brandon Morrow

    The Stat Line of the Night – 8/8/10 – Brandon Morrow

    In a year of no-hitters, it should come as no surprise that another pitching gem was tossed yesterday.  And of course what would a no-hit bid be in 2010 without somehow involving the Tampa Bay Rays.  Although Brandon Morrow couldn’t quite finish the job, his performance was still one for the books as the Toronto […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 8/5/10 – Mark Kotsay

    The Stat Line of the Night – 8/5/10 – Mark Kotsay

    So the first thing you might be asking yourself after clicking on the title — “Mark Kotsay is still in the league?” He sure is. And Ozzie Guillen loves to give him a lot of playing time for the White Sox. Last night Kotsay made his manager look good, coming up big against division rival […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 8/4/10 – Vicente Padilla

    The Stat Line of the Night – 8/4/10 – Vicente Padilla

    The San Diego Padres may be the best story in baseball this year. They have the National League’s best record at 62-40, after fielding trade offers for their best player in the offseason. But last night in Los Angeles, their playoff hopes hit another bump in the road in the form of a brilliant pitching […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 8/3/10 – Ricky Romero

    The Stat Line of the Night – 8/3/10 – Ricky Romero

    Last night fans gathered at Yankee Stadium in anticipation of Alex Rodriguez hitting his long awaited 600th home run.  As it turned out, they probably would have been happy with at least a hit.  A-Rod struggled to do anything against Jays’ ace Ricky Romero and the same could be said for the rest of the […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 8/2/10- Trevor Cahill

    The Stat Line of the Night – 8/2/10- Trevor Cahill

    Despite being a long shot to make the playoffs, the Oakland Athletics have had some amazing things happen to them this season.  Last night was another such thing.  Trevor Cahill is having a phenomenal year for a young pitcher, posting a 2.72 ERA and an 11-4 record.  Last night, however, he did something he hasn’t […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night — 8/1/10 — Adam LaRoche

    The Stat Line of the Night — 8/1/10 — Adam LaRoche

    The Arizona Diamondbacks recently made some big moves as the trade deadline was nearing, but the general feeling is that they were sellers.  At 23 games back in the division, there is not much hope for this season.  That doesn’t mean a D-backs fan can’t dream, however.  Yesterday was a perfect day for an Arizona […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 7/29/10 – R.A. Dickey

    The Stat Line of the Night – 7/29/10 – R.A. Dickey

    A long, long time ago, R.A. Dickey was one of the hottest pitching prospects in all of baseball. He was a 1st round pick of the Rangers in 1996. But like so many prospects that are hyped up, Dickey never lived up to his potential. Until now — almost 15 years later. Dickey is now […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 7/28/10 – Roy Halladay

    The Stat Line of the Night – 7/28/10 – Roy Halladay

    The fightin’ Phils are smokin’ hot and on a fierce roll, looking to take the top spot in the NL East from the Atlanta Braves. They took on the Arizona Diamondbacks last night in Philadelphia going for their 7th straight win. Roy Halladay was on the mound, which is always a good sign for the […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 7/27/10 – Cliff Lee

    The Stat Line of the Night – 7/27/10 – Cliff Lee

    The Texas Rangers look like they can make the playoffs and be a contender in the American League for the first time in many years, and an active front office went out and acquired Cliff Lee to try to help make that happen.  Unfortunately, Lee has not gotten the run support he expected from the […]
