My Mom Could Pitch in the NL

"Failed pitcher Rick Ankiel hit a three-run homer to cap his debut as a major league outfielder, and Joel Piñeiro worked seven scoreless innings in the Cardinals’ 5-0 victory over the San Diego Padres last night in St. Louis."

  • The Padres are all pitching an no hitting. According to, they rank 30th in team batting average at .243, and 27th in runs scored.
    The Cardinals-Padres game the other night wasn’t on account of Pineiro, it was on account of the Padres.

  • just so everyone knows, sf’s mom is one savvy customer, though she’s probably lost a few clicks off the heater. i think she’d be a fine back of the rotation pickup for your small-market franchise.

  • Can she be had for Farnsworth and a PTBNL?

    I’m going to be nice and not erase that post, but understand that it is a gross violation of basic standards of conduct to simply paste a link on one site onto another (presumably yours) in an event to coopt traffic. that’s not acceptable around here.
