All the buzz is about rookie phenom Stephen Strasburg, but the gNats fans better start paying attention to right-handed relief pitcher Tyler Clippard. He may just be their ace in the hole this season. Why? He ate a lucky hot dog and proceeded to club a hole-in-one on the golf course, his first ever.

That fat lazy dog Rod Barajas is now donning a Metropolitans uniform...puke! We here at WSBGMs hated him before he even caught an inning behind the plate for the Phillies, and hated him even more once he actually saw game action. Now we have an excuse to loathe the son of a bitch.
A Fish's coach, Carlos Tosca, thinks that Josh Johnson is Roy Halladay Jr- "even though their stuff is different, he reminds me in every way of Roy Halladay." Johnson, who was recently locked up long term, is dominant, but comparing him to Halladay at his stage in his career is a bit premature. Lets see him hold up over a few consecutive years without breaking down before crowning him with legendary status.
Stud pitcher Jair Jurrjens had a precautionary MRI last week due to shoulder pain. It revealed no damage, but their is some inflammation. I don't wish injury upon anyone, (because that would make me a bad guy), but missing Jurrjens for any stretch of time would only be positive for the Phillies. I gotta admit, that with a healthy Jurrjens and Tim Hudson, the Braves rotation looks scary good.
