Roundup

The Brewers scored 16 runs today and had the third highest run total in baseball. Good day for run scoring in the majors, wouldn't you say?

Esteban Loaiza had what would have been yet another awful start erased from the books today due to rain in Kansas City. Remember before Loaiza was a decent pitcher with the Nationals he was a mediocre pitcher with the Yankees? And before that he was a surprise great pitcher with the White Sox? But before that he was a pretty lousy pitcher with the Blue Jays? Well I think he might have come back around to that phase of his career. No worries though, the A's have plenty of money, they can easily afford to eat the remaining two years and $14 mil on his contract if it comes to that.

Congrats to Felix Hernandez for his first win of the season. Likewise, congrats to Adrian Beltre on his first home run of 2006. 48 homers was clearly not an anomaly for him.

Josh Towers' loss to the Yankees today puts his record at 0-5 with a 10.45 ERA. The amazing thing is not that he's off to such a terrble start as much as it's come with a respectable 12-10 Blue Jays team. Numbers like that usually end up on a pitcher with some horrible team like the Reds. Yeah, I know the Reds are 17-7. But I made a decision today that I'm sticking with my original sentiments of their club, even if it means living in denial all season. Don't think I won't do it. Anyway, Blue Jans fans (yes, I have a Blue Jays fan reading this, and yes, it's possible he might share this thought with some other Blue Jays fan at some point...it could happen) your team is 12-5 in games not started by Josh Towers. Something to chew on.

Sorry to clutter the blog up, but I wanted this clear:

Matsui's hit was 21 minutes after first pitch, putting it at 7:56 if first pitch was 7:35.
