  1. This sounds like fun, great idea Kevin. No idea yet if I'll be around, but if you get any "Why do you hate Kyeong Kang?" questions, you'll know I'm here. :)

  2. Reading the Box from the BG game has me wondering about Colome`s performance. Did anyone see it and can give me a report. 6 K`s in 3 IP with 1BB very impressive. 6 H for 6 ER not so much. Weird stat line to say the least.

  3. In my wrap-up post going up in the morning, I wrote: "Colome's strikeout rate seems to indicate his stuff was sharp, and perhaps he just left a few too many pitches over the plate. The hits off of him weren't exactly cheapies, four of them went for extra bases. I'd expect a better outing in terms of hits and runs allowed next time out."

  4. Did anyone see Moore's start?How was the velocity and control?I am guessing he had a lot of pitches if they pulled him after only 3.

  5. Moore looked decent for his first start. I was a little alarmed by the number of pitches he threw and working deep into counts. Probably the reason why he only pitched 3 innings (hope it wasn't residual effects to the line drive back to the mound he took early). But he did rally back to get the outs he needed to get out of jams.
