Daily Minyan – May 14, 2009

Today, my son Jordan will be presenting his award winning essay on “How to Make a Difference in Your Community” at his school’s enrichment fair.  Video will be posted on YouTube and I’ll provide the video and link tomorrow.   

As Jane would say, I’m qvelling over him!!!          


Now, let’s see if anybody did anything to qvell about. 


Brad Ausmus, C – Los Angeles Dodgers

Brad didn’t play in yesterday’s Dodgers’ victory over the Phillies.


Ryan Braun, OF, 3B – Milwaukee Brewers

Ryan went 0-for-3, walked once and struck out twice in the Brewers victory over the Marlins.  This lowered his average to .333.


Craig Breslow, P – Minnesota Twins

Craig didn’t pitch in yesterday’s extra-inning Twins victory over the Tigers.  


Scott Feldman, P – Texas Rangers

Scott, yesterday’s Macher of the Day, had a day of rest. 


John Grabow, P, Pittsburgh Pirates

John, who might have regained his form,  pitched a scoreless 8th inning in yesterday’s Pirates win over the Cardinals.   His inning of work also included a strikeout.  As a result, John lowered his ERA to 5.74.


Gabe Kapler, OF – Tampa Bay Rays

Gabe didn’t play in yesterday’s Rays victory over my O’s.  


Ian Kinsler, 2B – Texas Rangers

Ian went 0-for-3, but walked three times and scored on a Josh Hamilton homer.  His average is now .319.                        


Jason Marquis, P – Colorado Rockies

In Jason’s shortest outing the year he allowed a ******** nine runs and 10 hits and 3 walks over 3 2/3 innings!!  His record fell to 4-3, but his ERA rose to 5.40.

I guess Jason thought this game was like a Little League game in which the coach pitches to the kids! 


or he realized that being a starting pitcher for the Rockies is quite scary!



Scott Schoeneweis, P – Arizona Diamondbacks

Scott faced only one batter, Jay Bruce, who walked and eventually scored in the Reds’ 7th inning.  That 5-pitch walk raised his ERA almost a point to 2.70.  Maybe he was wearing the Chai 5 hat too tight or something!


Kevin Youkilis, 1B, 3B – Boston Red Sox

Youk was placed on the 15-day disabled list–retroactive to May 5–because of a strained oblique on his left side.


Macher (Big Shot) of the Day  –  John Grabow
