Roy Halladay should have been 10-1 going into tonight's game. After the bullpen blew a 5-run lead that Halladay had in his last start, the 32nd no decision Halladay has had due the bullpen blowing his lead, Halladay was determined to finish the game himself. Doc struck out 14 and threw a career high 133 pitches.

He had some of his best stuff tonight I have ever seen. He had one bad inning after sitting on the bench for a long time after the Jays blew the game open, but other than that he was downright nasty.

No posts on Unit's 300th win?

Good job by the MLB Network broadcasting the game, though I didn't watch all of it. The one inning I did watch he looked like he meant business and wanted to get it over with (i.e. he was dealing nasty). Everyone thought Glavine would have been the last for a while now it looks like Unit'll be. Mussina could have been but he went out on his own terms.

in MLB, I know you aren't allowed to trade draft picks but can you trade the rights to those players after you've drafted them?

I am fairly sure that it isn't allowed. If it is I can't think of any example of it ever happening, although I really doubt it is legal.

Me either, I would guess you can't because it'd be a loophole around signing draft picks. MLB draft is so stupid because so many small market teams have to pass up on the talented players to get the one that will settle for the money the smaller market team can afford.

Cliff Lee is 6 outs away from a possible no hitter.

The Indians need to really trade this guy and get max value.. making a small $5.75M this year and has a cheap $8M club option for next year. Mark DeRosa is another great trade piece for them.

edit: Molina doubled to leadoff the inning, ah well.

the astro's offense has been doing great the past ten days. Its a shame to see them still struggling in the NL.
I'm also glad to see the pirates show some life, only being 2 games under .500 is pretty good for them right. Russ Ohlendorf was another Yankee prospect, i believe he was sent over in the nady / marte trade.

how about the Rockies? 11 straight wins .. they dont stand a chance in that division, but, they might have a shot at the wild card.

re Pirates: yeah Ohlendorf was part of that deal.. that kid Andrew McCutchen has jolted some life in them since dealing McClouth... hes FAST.. If Morgan can continue to progress in hitting and getting on base those 2 are going to be a lethal 1-2 punch at the top of the order... and they also adds strength to the defense in the outfield.

btw Lee just finished the game, CG shutout.

On the subject of Cliff Lee's CG shutout...

Joe Morgan told a story last night, while Cliff Lee still had a no-hitter going against the Cardinals. The interesting thing is, the story wasn't true at all.

"I guess I can tell this story now, one of my great experiences when I was a young player. Don Wilson was pitching a no-hitter against the Atlanta Braves. They had Orlando Cepeda, Rico Carty, Felipe Alou and Hank Aaron, of course. And they got to the ninth inning, he got two outs, no one on base, and Hank Aaron was the hitter. And in my infinite wisdom, I ran in to the mound. I said, "You know, it wouldn't be the worst thing in the world if Hank Aaron walked right here. He said, "Get back to second base." I proceeded to go back to second base. He threw three fastballs right by Hank Aaron. No-hitter."

The folks over at Deadspin did a little research, and it turns out that the no-hitter in question actually happened... but Joe Morgan didn't actually play in that game.

Here is a weird rule. If the MLB season ended today then Joe Mauer would win the AL batting title and be recorded as hitting .426(I think that's his average noe) for the season even though he doesn't have enough ABs to qualify for the league leaders list.

The reason for this is that MLB has a rule that if you can sustain being given 0 hits in all the ABs you need to qualify for the leaders list and still have the highest average then you will be recognized as the batting champion and they'll record your real average and not the adjusted average.

anyone see that stolen base by scutaro? just caught it on the highlights on baseball tonight... that was such a smart and gutsy attempt to try something like that.

edit: also that willie harris catch vs the yankees was SICK: http://mlb.mlb.com/m...200906185118861 .. hes made some dandy catches vs the mets in the past as well.

All-Star teams announced minus the final voting spot. Online voting continues to deny deserving players of a chance to be at the game. Josh Hamilton. Great story last year but you've been injured most of the season. Dustin Pedroia was the MVP last year but Hill and Kinsler should be the two 2Bs.

Now there is only one spot left and more than one deserving player out there. Lind and Kinsler should both be there. Look at where Lind ranks in the AL.

BA: 11th
OPS: 5th
Hits: 8th
2B: 3rd
HR: 11th
RBI: 7th

Russel Branyan could've gone... the person that didn't go that shocked me most was Dan Haren of the DBacks...

8-5, 2.16 ERA, 0.83 WHIP, 15 BB/119 K (yeah, thats a 7.93 K/BB ratio) .. how the hell did he not go?

edit: im glad Sandoval is going, he was part of that group of 5 players from the NL; only 1 would get voted in, and it was him .. he deserves it - .328/.381/.564, 13 HR, 48 RBI

edit 2: oops, im wrong .. kinsler and sandoval lead their groups, so they aren't technically in yet.

re: Lind/Kinsler - this should go to Lind IMO.. Kinsler is terrible on the road - .200/.271/.406 .. seems like hes benefitting from that park in Texas where ball carries better

as i said in the mets thread - if giants want to make a serious playoff run they should look into acquiring a power hitter (they rank 2nd to last in homeruns and are near the bottom in every offensive category).. they were supposedly shopping sanchez; this should bring his value up a bit.. hes never been awful (despite the high ERAs), he just walks alot of guys - hes averaged 4.5 BB/9 during his major league career.
