The shortest Short Hops

April 30, 2010

Sorry, folks, today’s update will be tiny: 

Short hops:
  • Highlights from yesterday included two homers apiece from Paul Konerko (MLB leader with 10) and Adam LaRoche (not MLB leader with not 10), and three homers from John Buck, who had been batting only .155 with 1 homer and 6 RBI going into Thursday. He’s still only batting .194, but at least he’s got 4 homers and 11 RBI. Buck has only 12 hits this year, 9 of which have been for extra bases.
  • The Rays kept on rolling with an 11-3 smashing of the Royals yesterday. The Rays are now 17-5 and 2.5 up on the Yankees, who beat Baltimore again yesterday.
  • This weekend, the Mets and Phils begin an early battle for first place with a three-game series in Philly. Additionally, Phils closer Brad Lidge will return from the DL today.
  • Ex-Phillie Cliff Lee comes of the DL to debut for the Mariners and Ian Kinsler returns today to the Rangers. 
Look for a full update tomorrow and most of next week!

    I was a really bummer looking at the MLB scoreboard about midnight last night and seeing the Seattle game going into the 10th inning with a 0-0 score.
    But Cliff Lee showed that when he is on…the rest of the AL had better get ready for some swing and misses this year.
    Great to see him have success his first time out,but hopefully the M’s bats will be ready next time.

    The Rays lost a tough one last night, but I’ll take a 17-6 month any time. There was a point last night when I thought Longo was going out of the park for a game winning 3-run dinger, but, alas, it was not meant to be. LaRoche and Konerko are doing stuff that they have never done before, suddenly making themselves relevent to all fans (and fantasy baseballplayers) everywhere.
