love the fact that Strasburg has hit as many doubles as he's allowed (#3).

BTW, shouldn't harper get some mention given his high-80's / low-90's arm?

Woa, now...I remember "them" saying that Harper had a 96mph fastball in high school.

Gio and SS should start in the outfield when not pitching with the way this team hits.

Mariano Rivera put an end to any thought of a P playing OF.

That was just bad luck, he had been shagging fly balls for decades without incident.  Perhaps they shouldn't play NHL hockey like Plush, but that's another story.

I'd like to think this thread has spurred on some competition among those boys lately.

We have 3 out of the 40 pitchers with > 10 PAs and positive batting WAR.  Strasburg leads at 0.5, Jackson is top 15 or so at 0.2, and JZ is positive at 0.1.  Gorzo is positive but has only 3 PAs.

While JZ is not stellar on batting WAR, he has the 5th lowest k% of all pitchers with > 10  PAs (15.8%).

More likely that DH is imposed on NL.

Yeah, I think it's been giving us a significant advantage.

If the NL gets the DH forced on it I think I might be done with MLB.  AL style baseball is just dreadfully boring.

that's not even the worst part - all the Big Time DHs have fled to the American League - the NL would be so far behind in that regard, it would be brutal

Gio

And John Lannan!

I think Lannan should be brought back to replace Henry Rodriguez. I thought Lannan was beginning to improve when they decided to demote him. H-Rod has been disappointing me. It seems every time he is brought in he blows it.

Maybe it's just me.

Loved this note discussing the ChiSox 3d base offense prior to today.

How bad are the White Sox third baseman? Their .467 OPS is more than 30 points worse than the .499 OPS from the Nationals pitchers! In fact no other team has a worse OPS at any position this year.

I feel like the answer has to be Stras now... there aren't a lot of pitchers who could do what he's done this season even in a small sample.  He just kills the ball.

After watching last night's game, I'm getting sick of watching the pitchers match the everyday players in RBI's.

Maybe to some but I like defense and pitching playing a larger role in the outcome of a game than pure slugging.
