Baseball Week 2 – Thoughs and Feelings


This Week in Baseball – Week 2

Just to keep you informed, these won’t be full recaps, but instead just my thoughts about the past week in Baseball. So without further wait, here we go…

Rockies get A No-No – Usually known for wild pitches that often go into triple-digits, Ubaldo Jimenez threw the first no-hitter in Colorado Rockies short history. However, throw an asterisk up there because he did it with six walks in the first 5 innings. I don’t know about you, but that’s a little shifty to me?

Marathon Match – Saturday night might go down as one of the best nights of the season, and its only the second week! Last night the Cardinals faced off with the Mets in what should have been a low-drama affair, but almost 7hrs later and 20 innings played the teams were still at it!

Let The Bandwagon jumping begin! – After the Toronto Bluejays opened the season with 7 wins out of 10 games, the boys in powder blue cooled off and were swept by the visiting LA Angels. The weak rotation was highlighted, except the unflappable Romero who pitched well. Well, I heard a few splashes as people jump off the bandwagon already, it’s a long season and it always feels longer for the dedicated Jays Fan.

Fantasy Batter of the Week: Another tough week, as we had both José Guillén and Chase Utley cranking out five homeruns each. But we’ll give the edge to José Guillén for .440 batting average and .481 OBP.

Fantasy Pitcher Of The Week: Roy Halladay picked up two wins, with 12 Strikeouts in 17 innings pitched but still doesn’t get this week’s award. This week it goes to San Francisco’s ace, Tim Linceum who picked up two wins and 17 strikeouts but edged out Halladay with his 3 hits and 3 RBIs that lead his team to a 9-0 win Friday night.

  1. No hitters should have a clause: 4 or less walks/HBP.

    Yes he did not allow a hit, which is a great feat and I wouldn’t want to take away from Ubaldo’s accomplishment, but his control was way off in those first 3 innings. He literally looked like he could not find the strike zone, consistently throwing first pitch balls and falling behind hitters.

    Still does not dispute the fact that Ubaldo is one of the best young pitchers in the game. He should be fun to watch down the stretch as the Rockies make another run for the World Series.
