RHP Felix Hernandez v RHP Jered Weaver in a battle of young stud pitchers. 7:05, FSN.

This is it, right? Felix is the pitcher who turns this thing around for us, puts an end to this insanity.

Jered Weaver: 285 batters faced. 214 outs made, 58k, 19 BB, 50 H, 2 HR, 2 HBP
Felix Hernandez: 575 batters faced. 426 outs made, 130 K, 51 BB, 143 H, 17 HR, 6 HBP

Jered Weaver: 20% of batters struck out, 7% walked
Felix: 23% of batters struck out, 9% walked

Tonight’s non-sensical lineup of stupidity:
CF-R Willie “The Ignitor” Bloomquist
2b-R Lopez
3B-R Beltre
LF-L Ibanez
1B-R Sexson
DH-L Broussard
C-R Johjima
SS-R Betancourt
RF-R Chris Motherfucking Snelling

From Wikipedia:

The phrase “Snakes on a Plane” has been used on Internet forums to indicate that a given topic is nonsensical. With creative uses of capital letters, bold or italic text, and punctuation the title has been manipulated to reflect surprise, horror, or absurdity, among other things. The meme is often interspersed with images of Samuel L. Jackson reprising his role as Mace Windu and quoting lines recalling his roles from both the Star Wars series and Pulp Fiction. The slang form “SoaP” is used in place of “Shit happens” or “Oh well, what’cha gonna do?”

With that, I present:

    The Phillies did not get 4 good prospects. They got one interesting prospect who’s still several years away. That was a salary dump, and nothing else.

    I don’t know what defines “candidate” for Cy Young, but if he continues to pitch somewhere near his current level, he may get put down on a couple ballots; they vote for the top 3.

    I base this on my recollection that Randy Johnson got some votes for NL Cy Young in 1998 – yes, that’s the season he was traded to Houston on July 31st. In 2 months, he started 11 games and went 10-1 with a 1.28 ERA. He got 2 third-place votes from the 32 voters and ranked seventh.
