8 AM is too early to be starting a little league game. But today, a great thing happened even though my boy’s team lost.
That and more on today’s episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
Yu Darvish, Andrew Cashner, Grady Sizemore, Justin Upton, Johnny Cueto, Mike Aviles, Scott Feldman and Ryan Zimmerman all added to their totals for Who Owns Baseball.
Andrew Cashner threw a complete game 1 hit shutout of the mighty Detroit Tigers, getting the 6-0 win for the Padres.
Justin Upton got on base 5 times and clubbed a game tying homer and a walk off hit, dominating the Braves’ dramatic 7-6 10 inning win over the Nationals.
Yu Darvish pitched amazingly well over 8 1 hit innings against the Astros. He struck out 9 and let up no runs. He got no decision but the Rangers won 1-0.
Grady Sizemore went 2-4 including a dramatic 3 run homer, giving the Red Sox a 4-2 win over the Yankees in the Bronx.

The other day we talked about the hitters for the Astros and how they were acquired.
Today we delve into the Pitching Staff. The Bullpen is compromised with some familiar names, that were Free Agent Signings.
A lot of the Starters were brought in by trade, or signed as Free Agents.
Michael Bourn (with a few others) came over for the 2007 trade for the former Closer Lidge, and then was flipped to Atlanta for Oberholtzer and a package of players.
One of the unfortunate deals the team did was for Miguel Tejada, but it certainly didn’t backfire as bad as it could have.
