    The Stat Line Of The Night – 7/4/10 – Drew Stubbs

    It was the fourth of July, and while the fireworks were not expected to fly until later on in the night, the Cincinnati Reds had other ideas as they would put on an air show of their own.  And leading the charge would be center fielder Drew Stubbs. On a day when the Reds combined […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 7/1/10 – Trevor Cahill

    Oakland A’s starting pitcher Trevor Cahill has been one of the top starters in the American League this season. Wait — who? Trevor Cahill, Oakland A’s. Still not ringing a bell? No, not the guy that threw the no-hitter and cussed out A-Rod earlier this year. That was Dallas Braden. I’m talking about Trevor Cahill. […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 6/30/10 – Vladimir Guerrero

    The Stat Line of the Night – 6/30/10 – Vladimir Guerrero

    Vladimir Guerrero must have found himself The Hot Tub Time Machine. In 2010 he’s been partying like it’s 1999. Last night the Texas Rangers were in L.A. to take on the Angels, and Vlad went off on his old team. With the Rangers down 3-0 in the fourth inning. Vlad stepped up to the plate […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night — 6/29/10 — Albert Pujols

    The Stat Line of the Night — 6/29/10 — Albert Pujols

    Albert Pujols is one of the best players in the league and some would say one of the best players of all-time.  It would be a tough thing to argue against, as Pujols has consistently hit his way to the top of the leaderboards and kept his team competitive even when all has seemed lost. […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 6/28/10 – Michael Bourn

    It’s been a lousy year for the Houston Astros and their fans.  The ‘Stros are only above the lowly Pirates in the NL Central, one of baseball’s weakest divisions.  But last night their fans were treated to some exciting baseball, and a come from behind win. They were down 4-0 after 2 and 5-2 after […]

    The Stat Line of the Night — 6/27/10 — Jon Lester

    Jon Lester of the Boston Red Sox did a little bit of everything last night to help his team defeat former Cy Young Award winner Tim Lincecum and the San Francisco Giants.  The victory gave the Red Sox the series advantage, but it wasn’t easy.  After only 3 days in San Francisco, the Sox lost […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 6/24/10 – Dustin Pedroia

    The Stat Line of the Night – 6/24/10 – Dustin Pedroia

    The Boston Red Sox and Colorado Rockies met up in Denver for a rematch of the 2007 World Series. Dustin Pedroia remembered how much he loved the thin air after having the game of his life. The 2008 AL MVP had a staggering stat line and led the Red Sox to a 13-11 extra-inning win, […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 6/23/10 – Cliff Lee

    The Seattle Mariners welcomed the Cubs into Safeco Field for Wednesday night’s game. It’s the Cubs — which team wouldn’t want to see them in the visiting clubhouse? Cliff Lee was taking the bump amidst more trade rumors. Seriously — why do we keep hearing about teams wanting to trade this guy? Lee demonstrated yet […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night — 6/22/10 — Jamie Moyer

    The Stat Line of the Night — 6/22/10 — Jamie Moyer

    Jamie Moyer continues to impress baseball fans around the country, just like he did as a rookie in 1986.  Yeah, 1986.  The crafty left-hander has been pitching in the Major Leagues for 25 years.  He will be turning 48 at the end of this season, but he is still extremely effective as he proved in […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 6/21/10 – Justin Upton

    The Stat Line of the Night – 6/21/10 – Justin Upton

    Justin Upton has struggled a bit this season early, and so have his Diamondbacks.  Coming into last night the Arizona Diamondbacks were last place in the NL West and beginning a series with the Yankees that seemed sure to end badly for them.  Upton had other plans, however, and Arizona was able to overcome the […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night — 6/20/10 — C.C. Sabathia

    The Stat Line of the Night — 6/20/10 — C.C. Sabathia

    C.C. Sabathia had a pretty bad May.  For most pitchers, a 1-2 record and a 5.15 ERA wouldn’t have been catastrophic for a month, but the expectations for the former Cy Young award winner are a bit higher.  Things did not look to get any easier this month, with C.C. facing both Johan Santana and […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 6/17/10 – Ron Artest

    The Stat Line of the Night – 6/17/10 – Ron Artest

    Ron Artest thanked pretty much everyone he knows in his post-game interview, including his psychiatrist. He had reason to be so giddy and excited — he just won his first NBA championship and he was the player of the game. Artest kept the Lakers in the game when Kobe and Pau Gasol were ice cold […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 6/16/10 – Scott Baker

    The Twins opened Target Field this year after almost 3 decades in that hefty bag known as the Metrodome. I think it’s safe to say that the Twins like their new ballpark. The Twins welcomed the Colorado Rockies to town for some interleague play and the new stadium was packed to capacity. The fans didn’t […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night — 6/15/10 — Pau Gasol

    The Stat Line of the Night — 6/15/10 — Pau Gasol

    The LA Lakers were down 3-2 going into the game last night.  Just one loss away from elimination and a disappointing end to the season.  After splitting the first two games in L.A., the Celtics had won 2 of 3 in Boston and put the Lakers on their heels.  With Kobe trying to do too […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 6/14/10 – John Buck

    The Blue Jays have played very well through the first half of the season, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t immune to some odd situations.  Last night was one of those.  While John Buck brought his big bat and created some thunder from above, the Jays also felt something odd going on beneath their feet.
