The Captain's Locker

August 2nd is a memorable day for me. For one, because it’s my Mother’s birthday. But the other was because of what happened in 1979. It was the day that Yankee catcher and captain Thurman Munson died in a plane crash. Yankee Stadium plays a great tribute video but I can’t find it on Youtube. None of the tributes I found there really did it justice.


Rockies OF CarGo hopes to return from his wrist injury on Saturday.

In good news/bad news for the Rockies, star SS Troy Tulowitzki left Tuesday night’s game in the 8th inning after injuring the pinky finger on his throwing hand.  He was 0-2 with a walk at that point in the game.

Marlins SS HanRam left Tuesday night’s game with a sprained shoulder.

Dodgers rookie SP Rubby De La Rosa will need Tommy John surgery.  Expect him to miss most if not all of the 2012 season as well.

White Sox 1B Paul Konerko remained out after taking a pitch to the knee over the weekend.

Orioles SP Jake Arrieta is having his next scheduled start on Saturday vs Toronto skipped.  He is dealing with bone spurs on his elbow and his season could be in jeopardy.

Mets SP Johan Santana was scratched from his scheduled rehab start on Thursday due to lingering soreness in his left shoulder.

Clayton Kershaw dominated the Marlins on Sunday with a CG 2-hit shutout.

Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw threw a CG SHO against the Marlins in their 8-0 win on Sunday. He gave up 2 hits, a walk & had 10 Ks to extend his major league strikeout lead to 87. It was his 2nd career shutout. SS Rafael Furcal went 3-5 with his first homer, 2 runs & 3 RBI. Coming into the game he had 2 RBI all season. Marlins SP Ricky Nolasco lasted 5 innings and gave up 8 runs on 15 hits – which was the most ever for a Marlins pitcher. Dodgers OF Matt Kemp and manager Donnie Baseball weren’t around to catch the end of this game, they were ejected in the 4th.


Orioles OF Adam (DigDug) Jones left Sunday’s game with a sore shoulder.

Mets OF Carlos Beltran left Sunday’s game in the 6th inning with a sore left hamstring.

The Giants announced C Buster Posey is officially out for the season.

Marlins SS Hanley Ramirez left in the 2nd inning on Sunday with lower back stiffness.

Cardinals OF Matt Holliday missed Sunday’s game with continuing quad issues.

A’s closer Andrew Bailey was activated from the DL.  Don’t look for him to start closing games just yet though.



Pinstripes make anyone look classy

Here’s the fantasy news for a Saturday chock full of baseball.  Every Major League team is in action today.  I’m getting an earlier start today so I won’t be so tired this time. I’m slow enough as it is.  It would also help if I post these the same night I write them instead of getting around to it the next day.  I guess it will take me some time to round into regular season form as well.
