Anyhow, if Lee is able to maintain his lead in all three categories, he'll become the first hitter to pull off the feat since Boston's Carl Yastrzemski in 1967. More notable, however, is that Lee would become the first National League hitter ever to win the triple crown.I suppose he means other then Paul Hines (1878), Hugh Duffy (1894), Heinie Zimmerman (1912), Rogers Hornsby (1922 & 1925), Chuck Klein (1933) and Joe Medwick (1937). Sheesh... It is Fox Sports though, so what should I expect? [Update] It looks like someone got the word to Mr. Perry as he's changed the wording. It now reads...
Anyhow, if Lee is able to maintain his lead in all three categories, he'll become the first hitter to pull off the feat since Boston's Carl Yastrzemski in 1967.I didn't mean to pick on the fella - it's the first time I recall reading any of his stuff and the rest of the article was quite enjoyable with some good insights. Anyway, in other news... - Grant Johnson had his second outing in Peoria last night, his line for the game... 5 IP, 6 H, 3 ER, 2 BB, 3 K, 0 HR - OF Nic Jackson had some more shoulder surgery at some point this year and is likely out for the season. - West Tennessee is 2 games up on Carolina with 5 games left to play in the race to win the first half crown of the North Division of the Southern League. Peoria is 2 games out of a wild card spot with only 4 games left in the Midwest League. - Some of our draftees continue in the NCAA tournament this weekend. The final round of the playoffs is double elimination, so other then the first game, you'll have to keep track of the wins and losses to see who's playing when. I use this website myself. SS Jason Simokaitis (10th round - Nebraska) I was all set to catch a few innings of their first game versus Miami last Friday, but a lengthy rain delay put a stop to that. ESPN did play an old Nebraska/Texas game from earlier in the year and I saw him make a few plays at short and he does look quite smooth out there, just as the scouting report says. I didn't get to see any of his at-bats but he ended up going 4-for-7 with 3 runs scored, 2 RBI's and a homer in the two victories. First game: 6pm CST on Friday June 17th on ESPN2; versus Arizona State OF Tyler Graham (14th round - Oregon State) Just saw 2 of his at-bats where he singled in a run and then struck out. The stat line that ESPN showed was something in the vein of a 300 average with 0 homers and 23 RBI's. Either the Cubs think he'll fill out quite a bit or they plan on moving him to center. He plays left for the Beavers as 1st round pick (Red Sox) Jacoby Ellsbury mans center for the team (and wow did he look good!). Graham went 3-for-13 last weekend with 3 RBI's, a run and 2 stolen bases in 3 attempts. First game: 1pm CST Saturday June 18th on ESPN; versus Tulane P Trey Taylor (7th round - Baylor) Baylor also has 6th round pick INF Kyle Reynolds, but he didn't play at all last weekend and I heard a brief blip about an injury. I saw a few innings of Taylor and I got the impression that could one day be an effective LOOGY. Has a bit of a hitch in his motion and seemed to have an effective breaking ball. Went 6 innings versus Clemson last week giving up 5 hits, 3 earned runs, 2 walks and 6 K's, only one extra base hit. First game: 6pm CST Saturday June 18th on ESPN; versus Texas
Well noted. You may also note that Lester's Career Playoff ERA is almost a full point lower, and he has a lower WHIP as well.
Can't have everything, I guess.
i'm happy enough with the Lester signing, but Scherzer has more than earned the extra money so far. If he was in the rotation instead of Lester, this team would feel practically bulletproof to me.
Blaspheme maybe, but I think Scherzer is the best pitcher in the NL right now.
Maddon was pimping Russell for Gold Glove honors recently as a manager should do...
Here's some defensive numbers:

Let me guess: Land of Contusion? Puppet Prez Reagan mistakenly blows the world up due to a bum thumb?

Twitterverse reporting that Almora's examination by a hand specialist went okay, it's still just a hand contusion.
Attaboy, Eloy! Jimenez named Midwest League MVP and Best Prospect.
FYI, formatting of the web page is weird.
Now who can argue with that? I think we're all indebted to Gabby Johnson for clearly stating what needed to be said. I'm particularly glad that these lovely children were here today to hear that speech. Not only was it authentic frontier gibberish, it expressed a courage little seen in this day and age.

You can start the CRUNCH EARLY AM REPORTER. Then you can blog to yourself, and argue with yourself about Jon Lester.
