Daily Minyan – June 11, 2009

According to a couple of published reports, ABC approached

Macher of the Day Ryan Braun about being on “The Bachelor.” 

Thankfully, Ryan turned them down, so we don’t have to be

faced with images like this!!

performance yesterday.  


Brad Ausmus, C – Los Angeles Dodgers

Brad didn’t play in yesterday’s loss to the Padres.  


Ryan Braun, OF, 3B – Milwaukee Brewers

Ryan went 1-for-2, hit his 12th double of the year, drove in his

39th RBI, scored a run, walked twice and stole his 4th base

in the Brewers loss to the Rockies.  He was a busy boychik!!


Ryan was on fire!!


His average rose to .311.


Craig Breslow, P – Oakland A’s

Craig pitched 2/3 of a scoreless inning the A’s loss to the

Twins. He lowered his ERA to 4.56.


Scott Feldman, P – Texas Rangers

The Rangers’ game with the Blue Jays was postponed by



John Grabow, P, Pittsburgh Pirates

John pitched 2 scoreless innings in the Pirates win over the

Braves and earned his 10th hold of the year.  He struck out 2

and lowered his ERA to 3.67. John has been the main setup

man for the Pirates for most of the year and except for a

small stretch has been very effective in that role.


John has earned another Chai 5!

Gabe didn’t play in the Rays’ win over the the Angels

Angels of Anaheim.


Ian Kinsler, 2B – Texas Rangers

Scott Schoeneweis, P – Arizona Diamondbacks

Scott is currently dealing with the unexpected loss of  his wife.  My prayers are with him.

and walked in the BoSox victory over the Yanks
