Bryce Harper's Howard & Other Stuff
*Placido Polanco helped put the game away in the bottom of the 8th inning last night with a 2 run blast. It was his first homerun of the season and his 2000th career hit. Congratulations to Polly.
*Jordan Lyles scales the mound today for the Astros. He's made only one start this season, and gave up 3 runs over 6 innings. The 21 year old righy made his MLB debut in 2011, going 2-8 with a 5.36 ERA.
*Both Juan Pierre and Pete Orr made my Minor League Free Agent squad for 2012.
*Freddy Galvis has 15 RBI. Albert Pujols- 12. That doesn't mean Freddy is good, but it does mean that Pujols has been the biggest disappoint so far this season.
*Joe Blanton now has more wins (4) and a better ERA (2.96) and WHIP (1.07) than Roy Halladay.
