So, Terry Collins ripped the team last night. Let's see if his hot head this season leads to the same kind of mutiny he caused with the Angels in 1999.

Watching Jake Arrieta, one of Baltimore's aforementioned young scrub pitchers, tonight. Looks like he has a good fastball and sinker but hangs his breaking stuff over the plate too often.

Meanwhile, Phil Hughes continues to do a spot-on impression of Jamie Moyer.

The same Jake Arrieta whose ERA was fisted by the Rangers? Fuck that guy.

What a shit game. Nolasco was his usual inconsistent self, yet once again that bastard gets lucky with a win.

And thus why he's the Marlins '#2' pitcher.

Got to see my first walk off win ever at the stadium tonight. It doesn't get much better than that in a ballpark. A-Rod has been a monster.

That said, I'm annoyed with Girardi's managing of this game. Asking Martin to bunt in the 9th with a runner on second and no outs and Gardner following him was beyond stupid. Not pinch running for Tex in the 10th could also have been costly.

I wonder who will go first in the draft: Rendon or Cole? Consensus was previously Rendon but it seems Cole is upping his ante a hell of a lot.

Mauer on 15 Day DL.
I didn't want to believe it when a lot of local people were questioning Mauer's contract given his health potential. I'm still fine with it, and how could you not have signed the local guy?

But, I wasn't a fan of trading Wilson Ramos for Capps, and I'm still not.

^ it sucks for Mauer. I wonder if they will consider moving him to a different position that can keep him healthier. Can he play at third?

I wish somebody could explain how a young pitcher like Hughes suddenly loses his stuff just like that. I know it's early and I'm still hopeful he recovers his velocity, but it's truly baffling. He started off topping at 92mph last night, which was encouraging, but by the third inning he was throwing 86mph fastballs. This is Javier Vasquez territory right there. I can't really blame how the Yankees handled him - they were careful with his innings limit last year and there were no crazy Joba rules involved.

At least Colon has been fantastic. Hopefully his arm will hold. Seeing him jog from the bullpen to the mound was hilarious, though. It must have taken him like 5 minutes and you felt like he could have a heart attack at any point.

I think he's fine anywhere in the infield.
The big plan was to have him DH more, but like the Yanks, who needs yet another DH?

Ha, what?

"Now hitting third, the shortstop, Joe Mauer!"

Uhhhhhh. No.

I don't see the guy anywhere other than C, 1B, and DH.

Well, considering I'm now on our depth chart for SS, Mauer is actually under contract.





(just about anywhere in the infield)

1 for 9 with 6 K's thus far...impressive.

Hughes to the (phantom) DL.

FWIW, I think it's the right move.

Not sure I've ever seen an in-the-park grand slam outside of video games.

Last season Emilio Bonifacio on opening day was a play at the plate away from an in the park grand slam, I believe. Or that might've been two runners on, memory fogs me.

Got a nice game in Philly... somehow Javier Vazquez kept up with Oswalt through 5, although Javy was pulled and Oswalt was injured.
