Ok, the game last night was weird anyway.  It should have started a lot earlier and Yahoo didn't post anything until like 11 PM central and then all of a sudden it was suspended.  I was kind of excited, since the game was 2-1 when it was on and I have both Sherrill and Ryan, so I was thinking at least one save and then nada. 

I assume the reschedule was just because it was a light day in the league anyway.  Truthfully I didn't even look at the schedule yesterday to see if they were playing today, so I didn't even know there was a double header. 

Either way, yeah, yahoo glitch.  Yet again :-*

The first Orioles vs. Blue Jays game was the conclusion of a suspended game from earlier in the year.  It was not a true double header.

The 2nd game was a regular game.

All the stats will come out right in the end because 50,000 nerds like us email Y! about this.  It'll all come out in the wash.

Yeah we saw that in May.  I wasn't too impressed.

I think that arm surgery took a piece of Liriano that he isn't soon going to get back.

We'll see.

Was that why you picked him 8 weeks ago?

10-0 over his last 11 starts at Triple is pretty crap too

Triple A.  That's the key.

And he got shelled a lot there too.

Anyhow let's see 5 starts in the bigs, and see if he's anything like he was in 2006.  I'm betting on "no".

Tue, Aug 19 2B Ian Kinsler has very possibly played his last game of the season. What was initially called a sore left groin after Kinsler left Sunday's game is most likely a sports hernia, team orthopedist Dr. Keith Meister told the All-Star second baseman after an MRI exam on Monday. Kinsler will see a specialist in hernia repair, perhaps as early as Tuesday and could have surgery that would knock him out for the season.

Well, a few things about that Rob.

1.  Duchscherer is hurt too (and a FA in our league) and Upton sucks so no harm no foul there.

2.  It would be quite a feat for you to lose this one now with or without Kinsler.  I have designs on making a late run here, but I'd say it's better than 80-20 odds that you're going to beat me out this year.

Yeah, I hate to hand out a championship this early, but it's looking like a stretch.  Losing Kinsler doesn't hurt the odds though.

Don't get too excited though Rob I do have a path to victory here and I am not waving the white flag of surrender just yet.  I will contest this to the last out of the 162nd game.

I have caught you twice in the last 6 weeks and if one of those streaks hits in September I could catch lightning in a bottle.

I'm certainly not holding my breath.  If there was a week left, sure, but not with this many games to go. 

It doesn't help that my bats have gone cold for about 3 straight days now either.


EDIT:  good news this morning...

Wed, Aug 20 Kinsler (sports hernia) may be able to avoid season-ending surgery after further examination revealed just inflammation and not a tear in the abdominal wall, the team's web site reports.

And of course, Ian Stewart, who I added on Monday night to replace Kinsler, Ian Stewart who didn't show up in my roster until today, went 2 for 3 with a home run and 5 RBI yesterday.   ::)

One more start...the only thing not there is the K's, I'll take 4 W's, a sub 1.00 ERA and WHIP though any day of the week.

I concede that argument to you, through 4 starts you're right.

I don't really get it, the velocity isn't there.  But I'd still like to see a larger sample size.

Slider is almost as nasty as it was before, plus he's learned how to throw his change up a lot better than '06.  While his fastball isn't at 96-97 it is still 92-94...I think he'll be just fine

Alright, now I think I'm losing it.  The TOOLS tab is gone on my team page. 

Did it get moved?
