The last week of July cutoff excludes the Tigers / Marlins trade. While the Anibal Sanchez component has not yet been rewarding, Omar Infante would be near the top of your leaderboard. It has been much easier to watch Detroit play without a giant offensive hole in the lineup. And groundballs hit to second basemen are reliably outs (as opposed to the adventures of Ryan Raburn). Fielder does need to learn that the secondbaseman now has range in the hole, and play the bag rather than the ball.

I am positively appalled by the fact that St. Strasburg’s score of 10 and the Braves’ team score of 8 and the Nationals’ team score of 6 are unable to more effectively counter Paul Maholm’s score of 4. How can it be that that game has the same score as a Cleveland/Seattle game with 3 of the scores being 3, 4, and 6? Minnesota and Oakland have the same score. This situation boggles my mind, and I think that there should be some sort of discretionary NERD score points that are set aside to prevent this kind of occurrence.

How can Felix not be a 10 NERD pitcher immediately after throwing a perfect game?
