And I think Terry Collins has done a very good job; I like him much more than I expected to.

I'm just not sure they can overcome the foundation-built-on-an-Indian-burial-ground curse that the Wilpons carry.

JA, back off of the ledge. Sandy Alderson will right the ship and steer the Mets back to respectability.

Tim Stauffer gave up five homers in three innings to the Reds. The Padres bullpen gave up two more. The seven homers allowed tied a franchise record. I believe the Reds scored all 13 of their runs on home runs — probably not a record, but probably fairly close. Time for me to get on the Play Index and check.

Another other expansion-era mark of decisions within 1 of appearances.

Denny McLain for the Senators in 1971. 32 decisions in 33 appearances (incl. 32 starts). The one "missed" decision was in a 2-inning start that the Senators won (hence, McLain was ineligible for the decision). McLain went 10-22 and would pitch his last MLB game just a year later, at age 28.

Well, let's just wait to see what the NY media has to say, oKay?

A quick calculation shows that Jared Weaver's ERA increased by 14% today in 4.2 IP. Regression to the mean will get you every time whether you're Rivera, Sabathia, or Weaver.

Interesting how both C.C. and Jared have landed with a thud in their last outings in the midst of the dog days of August.

Gee, I guess I put the hex on Mr. Weaver with that post @28. 🙂

It also matched his career high in runs. And it ended his streaks of 49 straight games of 5+ IP and 32 straight games of 6+ IP.

And may I add, it was about time that Lind hit his 20th HR. He's been ice-cold for 2 weeks, with 2 RBI & 2 Runs in his previous 14 games and just 1 walk (intentional).

Consider the 2009 NL CYA vote: Carpenter (17-4, 2.24) had a better record and ERA than Lincecum (15-7, 2.48). But Lincecum had 33 more IP and 117 more Ks than Carpenter, and he won the award in a close 3-man race.
