  1. OK, now that explains Cedric Hunter going up to AAA … he couldn’t go up to Lake Elsinore or San Antonio because they are prep’ing for playoffs …

  2. 102 … thanks for the link … ouch, I don’t remember Frank Seminara at all …


  3. 46 … any more thoughts on OG “playing hurt most of the year”? He was out May 20th to June 28th … did he come back too soon? Do you really think the ASP (July 9-12) got him rested/healthy? I’ve not seen/heard any talk of this … but the data sure supports something along those lines …

  4. Checking OGs playing time for hints of health issues reminded me to check same for Jake … here’s his GameLog …


    MAN, has he been consistent this year!!! He’s only got 2 starts with less than 6 IP (one at 5.1 and one at 5.0) … his lowest pitch count this year is 98 …

    I just wonder what was really going on around the time of the ASB when he had 3 (relatively) bad outings in a row even with the ASB “rest” … but that’s just me being a worrier …

  5. 104: Giles’ numbers since the 28th are good. Presumably he was hurt for a large part of the time before he went on the DL.

  6. 102: I had said before that I had read about Merv being sick and lacking energy in the dugout, but I could never find the dang article I read that in. Thanks for helping me realize I was losing my mind after all ;)

  7. RE107…….”was NOT losing my mind after all”

  8. 108 … can you make up your mind?
