Pirates, Dodgers, & Rays Improve Team With Good Deals

Justin Morneau is a great addition to the Pittsburgh Pirates. The team is hoping that he can propel  them to a division title along with the other new faces to their squad. Morneau is having a very productive with him hitting .259 to include 17 HRs and and 74 RBIs. He is not the guy who was the AL MVP in 2006 that hit 34 HRs while driving in 130 RBIs and had an average of .321. He can still provide a team with solid at-bats in a game and is a good guy to have in the clubhouse. The left-hander can hit righties as good as southpaws. He has a .286 average facing right-handers and hist .282 against left-handed pitchers. He still knows how to handle the bat with runners in scoring position, as indicated by him having 54 RBIs in this situation.

Yusmeiro Petit was almost perfect last night. But he could use a nickname. And Armando Gallaraga should NOT be listed among pitchers who lost a perfect game.

Plus I go nuts at a PTA picnic trying to catch a Red Sox/Yankees score.

All of that today on The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast!

Yusmeiro Petit, Scott Feldman, Joey Votto and Josh Donaldson all owned baseball on September 6, 2013.

Yusmeiro Petit came within one pitch of throwing a perfect game before letting up a two out, two strike trapped single. He settled for a complete game 1 hit shut out of the Diamondbacks, 3-0.

Scott Feldman pitched Baltimore’s first complete game of the season, a 4-0 five hit shutout of the White Sox, that allowed the Orioles to move up in the Wild Card standings.

Joey Votto emerged from a prolonged slump to get on base 4 times with 2 walks and 2 hits, including a come from behind 2 run homer that was the difference as the Reds beat the Dodgers, 3-2.

Josh Donaldson helped propel the A’s back into first place by themselves by getting three hits, scoring three times and driving in 2 and hitting a homer and a stolen base as Oakland beat Houston, 7-5.

They all owned baseball on September 6, 2013.
