8th era, 11th whip, 11th k/9, 150 era+. real nice, but not totally ridiculous (like felix last year, or weaver this year), and certainly not a total no brainer for the all star game (again, keeping in mind all star game is just a popularity contest). certainly no shoe-in for cy young as well (although he certainly looks like a contender).

A large portion of the AS game is from the popular vote of the fans. But remember there is Player voting (16 players) Eight pitchers (five starters and three relievers) and Manager selection. (9 NL players/8 AL players)

CC was snubbed, no other way of looking at it.
cc was snubbed by fans (top 5). cc was selected as a replacement, but he's not going (and says he wasn't going to go anyways, and iirc, wouldn't have been eligible to pitch anyways).

(53-36) Not a good start to the second half of the season. Colon got shelled ( 42 pitches, 8 runs, in less than an inning). We gave up another 8 runs in relief.

Freddy Garcia on the hill tonight @ 7:05pm.

(53-37) Lost two in a row. Garcia allowed six runs in five frames. Next game at 1:07 this afternoon.

(54-37 Another gem from CC: 8 frames and 1 run. Mariano shut the door. Let's see if we can even up the series this afternoon.

(55-37) Hughes gets his first win! Nice. The Rays are next. Burnett vs Cobb

(56-37) TB walks in the winning run. Robertson gets the win. Colon needs to get the cobwebs out and get over it tonight. Still a game and a half out of first place in the AL East.

(56-38) Tough 1 run loss in "Ray Town" last night. So far we have split the series with Tampa. Better luck tonight.

(57-39) Great performance by CC, but no run support. A's tonight in the Bronx.

(58-39) The Bats have finally arrived in the Bronx and it's about time. Hughes lasted 4.1 innings, Noesi got the win. Tex smashed a Grand Slam in the third.

(59-40) A tough loss yesterday and a win today can't make up for a three game deficit behind the Red Sox. We need to be more consistent. A series with the Mariners is next.

(60-40) Good job last night. Hopefully we can get a sweep out of this series. Only two games behind in the AL East.
