If the Yanks make the playoffs, a Buchholz/Hughes match-up could be HUGE!
I'm amazed. For his first career start, he absolutely shuts down the first-place Angels and then throws a no-hitter as his encore. Unless he tanks the rest of the month, there's no reason he shouldn't be their #4 starter for October. Period.
EDIT: And again, it's Baltimore at the receiving end of a brutal beatdown. The fact that they gave up 30 runs in one game and been no-hit in the span of two weeks should have Orioles fans wearing bags over their heads. It's times like this I miss Grimis.
I listened to the last few innings on XM and couldnt believe i was hearing ANOTHER no hitter in the ninth. Glad this ended better than the one in Minnesota last night. Even if I am a Yanks fan, I gotta admire what the kid can do. Four great pitches, and 90-95MPH heat. He'll be hard to beat come playoffs unless he goes Ankiel on the Bosox.
One of my friends took his wife and kids to the game. They got great seats on the third base line and he videotaped the last inning from the stands. It was pretty impressive with the crowd noise. It was his wife's first game at Fenway. She'll probably think they're all like that!
CRZ had to edit my profile and close my table for me. I am a bad man.

Don't worry, we're fully embracing the suck.
I complained to another Liberal friend about some of the Left’s tone concerning the 2004 elections. I thought it insulting to hear those “red state” voters caricatured as red-necked rubes. My friend asked, “Well, don’t you think that people who live in large urban areas, who travel and read and speak other languages are better able to make informed choices?” It turns out it is superiority, not familiarity, which breeds contempt. - Pat Sajak
Ahhh, finally someone hits on the key to the strikeout dilemma. It's not the number of strikeouts so much as plate discipline. If the walk/strikeout ratio is high, then the number of strikeouts is not so bad. OBP and slugging percentage (OPS)
