What to focus on? The bad (Bartolo Colon, Tim Lincecum, Dustin McGowan, John Danks, Dontrelle Willis, Curt Schilling, Jason Schmidt, Tim Hudson) or the good (Homer Bailey, Tom Gorzelanny, Josh Beckett, Brad Thompson, Ben Sheets, Brad Penny)?
Pirates closer Matt Capps finally served his suspension. Ten days after the Yankees series. Shawn Chacon filled-in for Capps while he served his one-game suspension.
Corey Hart continues to be a catalyst for fantasy teams as he stole his 12th base last night. I know I was offered him by an unhappy owner at the end of April and declined. Now that team sits near the top of the league standings.
The game was a 15-1 blowout, but I still note Tigers' rookie Eulogio De la Cruz pitched a scoreless 9th and struck out two. A second-half power reliever in the making?
