Monday 4/13

Washington is a flipping joke. As is Peter King:

If Evan Longoria and Matt Garza are not in the top three vote-getters for MVP and Cy Young this year, I’ll be stunned. Longoria hits good pitches 400 feet. Garza has the Red Sox totally figured out.

Yup, Matt Garza. Flipping idiot.

1005p Oakland +147 2x

This ought to make it 0-3 on the day. I should have known that first week was beginner's luck.

105p DET (Porcello) +112 vs. CHW (Danks)

I doubt the Tigers will be all that public, but Porcello > Danks.

Streak for the Cash
710p New York Mets vs. San Diego
Current Streak: 0

This will be pointless by the 3rd inning after Pelfrey gives up 7 runs to the offensive juggernaut that is the San Diego Padres.

I'm still a little confused as to why Acta didn't put in Beimel to face Utley / Howard in the 7th during a tie game.

"Porcello > Danks"
Not that I disagree with the lean, but that's news to me.

Really? Am I underrating the White Sox? Or maybe putting too much emphasis on early season blog posts?

I'm perfectly happy being totally wrong about this.

Honestly I don't know how to prove my "point" since I'm not sure how you came to that conclusion in the first place. John Danks threw 195 innings of 3.44 FIP in the American League last year. Rick Porcello has thrown five innings above A ball.

It is not even like that FanGraphs post was that complimentary. He's not bad but there's not much of a reason to think he's an above average major league pitcher at this point, which Danks certainly is.

Definitely underrating the White Sox staff. I've read so much about how the '05 Sox rode a ridiculously lucky pitching run to the WS championship, and has since sucked, that I just assumed their entire staff was garbage. Clearly, not the case, which I should have realized since it's 4 years later. Thanks for pointing this out to me.
