Quote of the day
"I could tell he was grasping for air." -- Phillies manager Charlie Manuel, after Roy Halladay left the game in the fifth inning due to heat and dehydration
Roy Halladay couldn’t “grasp” enough air in hot and humid Chicago. He’d probably have fared better in San Francisco, where the temperature was only 65 – and where Ryan Vogelsong grasped the league lead in ERA (2.02) with 6-2/3 shutout innings against the Dodgers. After 15 starts he is now 7-1 with a BAA of .229. Yeah, we all saw that coming in preseason! Actually, he was undrafted in all five of the RIBC leagues.
Rainouts have certainly dissipated over the past month and a half. The 2011 season total of 35 postponed games is still above average, but only three of those washouts have been since June 1. All of those 35 games have now been rescheduled, so the RotoGuru MLB schedule is once again complete.
