Your league doesn't have a mechanism to keep people from drafting non-affiliated players?

Apparently not, and what hurt was that he was oicked on aut0draft. But my protestations were shot down with a heaping helping of fuck off, it serves you right.

Trent Thornton, of Fresno (AAA) fame last year and traded to the Blue Jays for Díaz pitches five innings, allowing two hits, no runs and striking out 8 (!) in his MLB debut yesterday. Good for him.

Another trenchant comment by a jealous lesser intellect.

JD Davis with two homers so far today for the Mets.

Up and down the M1 in some luminous yo-yo toy
But the future has to change - and to change I've got to destroy
Oh look out Lennon here I come - land ahoy-hoy-hoy

Ouch. After some other Nats reliever surrenders the lead by giving up two homers, Sipp comes into a 5-5 game with two outs and nobody on. He promptly gives up a double, a HBP, and a single to give up the lead for good.

A baseball clinic would probably be too much to ask, so I guess anything will do.

Carlos Gomez put on a dancing clinic while in the clubhouse

I believe there ought to be a constitutional amendment outlawing AstroTurf and the designated hitter. I believe in the sweet spot, soft-core pornography, opening your presents Christmas morning rather than Christmas Eve and I believe in long, slow, deep, torture of Bud Selig.

Takes a cannon of an arm to overthrow 1st base from where he was.
Always ready to go to a game.

Amazing.

The rest are pretending, they put on a show

Raise your hands if you thought Mike Fiers would throw TWO no-hitters in MLB.

I would have hesitated if you asked "9 hitless innings in a season."

Even Homer Bailey didn't think it was possible.
