Tim Beckham has begun to pick it up recently. Tonight he hit his first home run in a 2-4 night and got his 4th stolen base. His BA is up to .238 and while he is still not walking a lot, his BB rate is not awful nor is his K rate.

Price's line so far tonight: 5 IP, 2 Hits, 0 runs, 0 BBs, 9 Ks, 1.98 ERA Maybe he has been reading some of the cautionary comments on this site and wants to set us straight.

Another take on the Rays' inactivity at the trade deadline: http://seamheads.com/blog/2008/08/02/deadline-winners%E2%80%94when-less-is-more/ I think it misses some points, but also is on the right track.

That last title was supposed to be that Nady is not in the Pirates lineup tonight and there is no known injury. Now I read that Brignac is not in the Durham lineup.

A good sign that Hellickson has gotten better in each start. Tonight, 6 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 BB, 5 K.

Right Field

I am not posting this because I am entirely convinced, but I have been less concerned about a supposed problem in RF than some people. In my view a rotation of Hinske, Gross and Gomes is just fine....

Riding a hobby horse

I suppose this is not the most appropriate time for analysis given the urge simply to celebrate. But the 7th inning today reminded me of one of my pet peeves in bullpen usage.   The orthodox...

One reason I like Maddon

At the game tonight, we were speculating that Maddon would leave Shields in for the 7th inning. He had thrown 99 pitches (Garza threw 114 or so the other night) and seemed to be getting stronger....

Watching Price

The game had a 1 1/2 hour rain delay, but once it started it was a beautiful evening.   The first pitch Price ever threw as a professional in a real game was a fastball strike low and over the...

What to do when Aybar returns

Suppose the Rays cannot make a deal. After all, players like Dan Johnson passed through waivers (twice) without any apparently worthwhile offers. There is no guarantee that either Gomes or Hinske...

Musing on the game
