I wish Kyle Kendrick would make up his mind, does he or does he not suck. His 1-1 record coupled with his 5.87 ERA and 1.53 WHIP is very bleh. However, he's shown glimpses of an actual decent starting pitcher. Like last night, 7 shutout innings against a formidable Cardinals lineup. Oh yeah, there was that outing earlier in the season when he went 8 shutout innings. So in 2 of his 6 starts he's allowed no runs over 15 innings...very decent. What about the other 4 starts? Only 15.2 innings with 20 earned runs allowed...very crappy. I'm just as confused by all of this as he likely is.
3 members of the NL East and 1 AL East representative lead The Howard for MLB. Jason Heyward, Ian Desmond, Ryan Howard, and Ty Wigginton have 2 Howards apiece. It's very puzzling to see the East so heavily populated with Howards. In fact 16 of the 22 Howards committed this season have come from East Coast teams (73%). Damn Atlantic Ocean!
1:05 Business Person Special this afternoon in Philly. Why is it so special? Most business people, aka working Americans, don't even get a chance to see the game. Therefore, hours are wasted of would-be production at work sites across the greater Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware areas due to "workers" being tuned into some form of Internet to "watch" the game. Luckily for employers Roy Halladay has the ball for the Phils which should speed up the pace of the game.
