The good

Hitters

Ryan Braun- Milwaukee Brewers
Vs. Toronto Blue Jays
3-for-4, 2 HR, 3 RBI, 3 R

Maybe Braun can convince his manger to give blogs a chance. Come on man, we’re not so bad!

Joe Crede- Chicago White Sox (3B)
Vs. Pittsburgh Pirates
2-for-4, 1 HR, 3 RBI, 2 R

Really, I could have chosen just about anyone from the Sox for this spot. I guess that’s what happens when you play the Pirates.

Ryan Sweeney- Oakland A’s (CF)
Vs. Arizona Diamondbacks
3-for-4, 4 R, 1 SB, 2 BB

Last night was so great that even ex-Sox got in on the fun! I heard Ron Karkovice even hit two grand slams in his 60-and over softball league. If Officer Karko raced Paul Konerko right now (strained oblique and all) but Konerko had to run backwards and ten yards farther, would anyone pick Kark? I’ve still never seen a slower athlete.

Pitchers

Andy Pettitte- New York Yankees
Vs. San Diego Padres
Win: 7 IP, 0 ER, 9 K, 1 BB

Alex Rodriguez said he would love for his daughters to marry someone like Pettitte. I’d be more concerned about keeping them away from Jeter.

Justin Duchscherer- Oakland A’s
Vs. Arizona Diamondbacks
Win: 8 IP, 1 ER, 6 K, 0 BB

I’ll know I’m finally mature when I can type Duchscherer without laughing.

John Lackey
Vs. New York Mets
Win: 7.2 IP, 1 ER, 7 K, 1 BB

Um, the Mets new manager is Jerry Manuel. That’s got to be the baseball managerial equivalent of pulling Grossman in favor of Orton, right?

...and the guys that didn't get it done.

Hitter

Ryan Howard- Philadelphia Phillies (1B)
Vs. Boston Red Sox
0-for-4, 4 K

I believe the answer to yesterday’s Billy Beane question is “yes”.

Pitcher

Brandon Webb
Vs. Oakland A's
Loss: 3.1 IP, 7 ER, 3 K, 5 BB

Sometimes it’s good that no one reads this thing expect Barnes, Dubs, and Tone. See people, this is why I do the morning post. But hey, he nailed it on Johan
