It's a Good Time to Be Us
Holy shit, this is fun. If only Rios would remember what the hell to do with that stick they keep putting in his pretty, pretty hands, things'd be just about perfect. There are few things as brutal and precise as what Roy Halladay did in that bottom of the fifth. Cold, calculating. Jesus god, the man amazes. The fantasy league I'm in has a provision that your pitching staff must put in a minimum of 25 innings in a week for any of your pitching stats to count; this isn't a problem for me, because I have Halladay, and he averages 25.1 innings a start.
Elsewhere: Ichiro! Last night, downtrodden because he had been unable to help his (first place!) teammates from the DL, the Human Awesome decided to play catch up, collecting the maximum number of RBI in an AB. Still restless, tonight he attempts to become the hittingest Japanese man of all time. Impressive!
