Nick Hagadone Is Your Daddy

How about that guy? Brought up in late April for our west coast trip and kept on the roster (Lopez eventually went down) and has pitched 9 1/3 innings since then and given up just 1 run giving him an ERA of .96. And tonight? Struck out the side. The side including Adam Dunn who, according to all accounts, does not suck anymore.

Fact: Did you know that Hagadone's birthday is New Year's Day? I bet you will think about that next New Year's Day.

Carlos Santana! He's creepin' up towards .300, tonight going 2 for 3 with 2 walks. He almost decapitated John Danks with a two-out, two-RBI double, which is no easy feat because that guy is nearly invisible when sideways. Santana also stole a base and I was surprised to hear it was his first. Seems like he's been doing everything this year.

Speaking of creeping averages, Casey Kotchman is feeling a groove. He's no longer "Oh, Kotchman's up..." he's more like "Ok Casey, do it again!" He went 2 for 4 tonight and he will soon - SOON! - be batting over .200!

Jack Hannahan also had a nice night going 2 for 4. Unfortunately he didn't have people to bat in, otherwise who know he may have gone 4-4 out of pressure! His average is hovering under .300 at .289.

Otherwise it wasn't really the best game for us. Danks really had our number and conversely Masterson was NOT the hot stuff I was predicting him to be and Perez fell off the wagon. But they were saying on the radio yesterday that Perez was sort of begging to not have to pitch yesterday so I'm wondering if that carried over til today too?

Josh Hamilton hit 4 home runs tonight in Baltimore. I guess Rocky Colavito hit 4 in Baltimore once too. Curse of the Rock weighing on us tonight?

Lulz! Just kidding! Hitting and pitching sucked!

I had a crummy day today and couldn't focus on the baseball so I didn't get any Radio Chatter quotes. Sorry about that. I listened to the whole game but nothing really jumped out at me - maybe it wasn't even my fault, maybe Hammy and Rosie didn't say anything worth noting!

Hopefully everyone got their sillies out tonight, and tomorrow can get back to winning. Honestly it was a decent game since they showed the ability to come back. It just started and ended poorly. The bit in the middle? Awesome!

Tomorrow is Jeanmar against Jake Peavy. Let's hope Jeanmar stays on the same track he's been on. Another 7:05 game - see you there!
