More afternoon baseball today with a 3:45 PM start time from AT&T Park in San Francisco. Finally a game that won’t finish tomorrow for us east coasters!
If you are stuck at work, make sure to check out the Jays Journal Guide to Watching Afternoon Baseball at Work.
A buddy of mine made a bet earlier this year with somebody he works with. The guy thought that Zito would have a lower ERA than Dickey in 2013. My buddy more than happily took the bet. I would have too, Zito has been terrible in recent years and Dickey was coming off a Cy Young winning season.
Right now, I’m sure he’s more than a bit nervous.
Who would have thought Zito would have an ERA under 4 this far into the season and Dickey would still be over 5? Sure Dickey is pitching in the AL East and Zito in the junior varsity NL West but really?
I am officially confused by the 2013 baseball season.
Melky Cabrera has been all the news lately. My opinion – Melky has served his time why continue to harass him? He’s already lost millions in free agency. One word of advice for the Melk Man – please no websites. And it might be a good idea to stay off the internet in general the next couple of months…
According to ESPN, the Giants are 14-0 in Barry Zito home starts since August 2, 2012. That is actually unbelievable…
