    The Stat Line of the Night – 7/26/10 – Matt Garza

    The Tampa Bay Rays have been no-hit 3 times in the past year and 4 times in their short 13 year history.  That is a lot for one of the rarest events in sports to occur against you.  They were due to put on a no-hit performance of their own and they finally got one […]

    The Stat Line of the Night — 7/25/10 — Curtis Granderson

    Curtis Granderson is having a rough season on his new team, the New York Yankees.  The Yankees don’t seem to be missing a beat however, as they continue to hold onto the top spot in the deep AL East.  While A-Rod’s chase for 600 home runs is stealing headlines in New York right now, it […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 7/22/10 – Alex Rodriguez

    Yankees fans were treated to some fireworks last night as the lowly Royals came to town. Journeyman Bruce Chen took the bump for the hapless Royals, and the Bronx Bombers wiped off their drool long enough to batter him around. Chief among them was the surging Alex Rodriguez. ARod went off on Chen and the […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 7/21/10 – Pedro Alvarez

    Pedro Alvarez was the second overall pick in the 2008 MLB draft. Apparently, he likes that number 2. Alvarez crushed two home runs for the second game in a row as the Pirates beat the Milwaukee Brewers 15-3 Wednesday night in Pittsburgh. Alvarez may have pushed the Brewers closer to trading some of their big […]

    The Stat Line of the Night — 7/20/10 — Aramis Ramirez

    Tuesday was a huge day for the Chicago Cubs.  Their manager and leader Lou Piniella announced his retirement at the age of 66.  Lou has been in the league for many years as a player, coach and manager.  As the Cubs manager, he had taken the team to the playoffs twice but flamed out in […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 7/20/10 – Miguel Cabrera

    The triple crown in baseball has not been achieved in so many years that it has almost become an unreachable goal.  Year in and year out there are candidates early in the season, but by August they have flamed out.  This year may be different.  Miguel Cabrera is swinging the hottest bat in baseball and […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 7/18/10 – Paul Maholm

    The Pittsburgh Pirates have not had much to be happy about this year, or even the last 15 years for the matter.  They are one of the perennial losers in baseball as each season they sell off the few good young stars they have and seem to be in a perpetual rebuilding mode.  Yesterday, however, […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 7/15/10 – Tommy Hunter

    The Stat Line of the Night – 7/15/10 – Tommy Hunter

    Quick — name the first place team in the American League West. Did you guess Texas Rangers? Good for you. Can you name the pitcher on their club that is now 6-0 after beating the Boston Red Sox last night? Did you say Tommy Hunter? Liar. Hunter made it into the 7th inning last night […]

    The Stat Line of the Night — 7/13/10 — Brian McCann

    The National League has not won an All-Star game in 13 years.  The American League has dominated the mid-summer classic since 1997 with one tie and 12 wins.  This year would change all that in a pitcher’s duel for the ages.  One big hit would be all that it would take to win the game, […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night — 7/12/10 — David Ortiz

    The Stat Line of the Night — 7/12/10 — David Ortiz

    He is known affectionately as “Big Papi” around the league, but David Ortiz’s bat was anything but big to start the season.  In fact, in April his offensive numbers were so bad that there were rumors he might be traded.  Fast forward to last night and things had completely changed.  After that abysmal April Ortiz […]

    The Stat Line of the Night — 7/11/10 — Carlos Quentin

    Less than one week from securing a Stat Line of the Night, Carlos Quentin has done it again, this time propelling his red hot Chicago White Sox into first place in the AL Central.  The White Sox had a terrible start to the season and had some people calling for the heads of front office […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 7/8/10 – Roy Oswalt

    Houston Astros flamethrower Roy Oswalt has been the subject of trade rumors lately, and after last night’s dominant performance his market value just went up. The Astros were taking on the Pirates in Houston, a battle of two of the worst teams in baseball this year. Oswalt allowed a first-inning single to Pirates 2nd baseman […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 7/7/10 – Buster Posey

    The Giants recently traded Bengie Molina to free up more playing time for super prospect Buster Posey. So far the move looks good, and Posey is already paying some big dividends. The Giants were in Milwaukee to battle the Brewers and Posey was playing 1st base to give his left knee a break. He was […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night — 7/6/10 — Johan Santana

    The Stat Line of the Night — 7/6/10 — Johan Santana

    The Mets have had their ups and downs this season, but it seems as though every time Johan Santana takes the mound, the Mets bats go silent.  He is sporting a 3.15 ERA with a measly .239 batting average against him, however he was only 5-5 going into last night’s game.  Santana didn’t need any […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night — 7/5/10 — Carlos Quentin

    The Stat Line of the Night — 7/5/10 — Carlos Quentin

    Carlos Quentin has struggled at the plate a bit this season.  He’s also struggled in the field for most of his career.  The one thing that has never been lacking for Quentin is power numbers, and last night was no different.  The big difference last night was that he also got it done with his […]
