*Royals starting pitcher Zack Greinke is off to an insane start, with 3 wins and a 0.00 era through 20 innings pitched. Oh, and he's struck out 26 batters as well.
*Everybody Wang-Chung tonight? Yankees starting pitcher Chien-Ming Wang is the polar opposite of Greinke, with 3 losses and a 34.50 era through 6 innings pitched. Oh, and he's allowed 23 hits and 23 runs.
*Brad Lidge and the Phillies had a wild ride in 2008, as they were 79-0 when leading after the 8th inning and Lidge converted 47 straight saves. Fast-forward to 2009 and we've got 2 losses under the same conditions and 1 blown save. Setup man Ryan Madson is partially to blame as well.
*Wanna hear something crazy? Top 3 pitching staffs in MLB are the Pirates (2.63 era), Mariners (2.84), and Royals (2.94).
*Miguel Cabrera (.488), Kevin Youkilis (.467), and Ian Kinsler (.457) are off to ridiculous starts...watch out Ted Williams.
*Severe- Jimmy Rollins is the anti-Splendid Splinter right now batting a MLB worst .133.
*Outlandish- Ranger Chris Davis has k'd 18 times in 10 games.
*Save Me- Padres closer Heath Bell has 7 saves already.
*Ludicrous- the Blue Jays, Orioles, Royals, Mariners, Marlins, and Padres are all at/near the top of their divisions.
*Bizarre- the Phillies, Red Sox, Rays, and Angels are all at/near the cellar of their divisions.
*The Blue Jays have a .296 team batting average while the Reds only .208.
*The Blue Jays are averaging 6.6 runs scored per game while the Astros only 3.1.
*Extreme- Texas and Toronto have launched 22 homeruns each, but Oakland has only 3. Many teams have hit more homeruns in 1 game than the A's have all season. Hell, many players have more homeruns to their name than the A's have as a team.
*Outrageous- Cardinals have committed 12 errors through 13 games and the Nationals 11 errors through 10.
Cypress Hill- Insane in the Membrane
