Road Trip to Cooperstown: Knoxville to Durham

I don’t want to talk about David Wells, do you? Good, let’s move on, then, and pretend we’re still on the road.

How ’bout that Chris Young. Friday night we get to watch one of the guys he was traded for, Adam Eaton. For the record, his ERA is a tad higher than Young’s… Young helps stifle Phils with vanishing fastball (San Diego Union-Tribune). Geoff Blum scored the game’s only run Thursday night. Phillies pitcher Cole Hamels, [...]

With five guys in the bullpen who pitch on a regular basis plus two others who are along for the ride, it’s [...]
