  1. I imagine that guys like Dan Johnson, Russell Branyan, etc. feel much like I felt while mashing JV High School pitching as a junior in HS. And that is entirely unfulfilled and embarrassed about my age.

  2. Cubs-Astros with a game score of zero. There’s no way I’m missing that one.

  3. Not to mention two other games with a score of 1. This looks like an entirely forgettable day all around as far as watchability is concerned.

  4. Call your bookie, place all the money you have plus $5,000 on the Cubs and I guarantee you that watchability will be through the roof. Capitalism is awesome that way.

    Does anyone know why “each” is italicized by Dear Author? You think any Yankees call their newest guy, “Each”?

  5. Because providing scores for each game is much more laborious than providing scores for just some of the games. Imagine the number crunching that went into finding the game score of 0 for Cubs and Astros!

  6. Forget about Branyan’s lights out#’s trying to get back to the show at 36,12dingers,40 rib-eyes.310,slugging over.600 slugging in 33 games before his back went out on him again.WHAT’S to be embarrassed when he is ranked 14th all time in h.r.frequency as a big leaguer with a tater every 14.8 at bats.194 homers in under 3,000 major league at bats.Behind him, Ster-Rod homer every 14.9 at bats,Kingman,Mantel and Teddy ballgame[Williams] 1 every 15 ab’s.Muscle averages 30 h.r’s,71 ribs every 449 ab’s as a part timer.Nothing to be embarrassed about.

  7. The most interesting name here, IMO, is John “Terry” Doyle, who, in spite of an excellent performance through 76.1 IP, was release by the White Sox in early June and, so far as I can tell, was not picked up by any other Major League organization. He is 26 and has never pitched in the majors, doesn’t seem like a high K% guy, but doesn’t walk guys and generated a lot of ground balls. Seem weird that they would have cut him lose like that.

  8. Aha: they released him so that he could pitch in Japan. Also, per Wikipedia:

    Doyle majored in math at Boston College. Due to dermatitis, Doyle returned to college in his senior year to obtain his teaching credentials. During the offseason, Doyle works as a substitute teacher. He rotates between three high schools in Warwick, Rhode Island.
