Today he begins with a HD-look at the National League's hottest (and only) three-win team ...
Bat man: Ryan Zimmerman's solo shot again provided the winning margin for the Nats, who gave Washington a 3-0 baseball team for the first time since president Harry Truman and general Douglas MacArthur playfully disagreed on how to run the Korean War back in '51.
Buyin': Phillies lefty Cole Hamels —the bum — pitched just strong enough to lose (8 IP, 5H, 1 ER, 6K, 2BB). Michelangelo (not the ninja turtle) probably smudged the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel along the way, too, but you didn't hear the pope complaining.
Sellin': Nats' righty Tim Redding (Redding — isn't that the Phillies' Double-A team?) might not throw too many more one-hitters but, at age 30, still has a chance to be better than Scott Scudder or Jeff Juden — not to aim too high.
Feelin' the rundown (A look at yesterday's scores)
Mets 13, Marlins 0 — Vote for Pedro: Which body part will go next?
Braves 10, Pirates 2 — Five Braves relievers earn holds — odd.
Brewers 8, Cubs 2 — Fans booing at Wrigley, is it Thursday already?
Cardinals 8, Rockies 3 — Rico Washington hits RBI double after 4,000 at-bats in minors.
