    Nady .330 with 13 home runs and 57 RBIs.
    Marte 4-0 with a 3.47 ERA and 47 strikeouts in 46 2/3 innings

    For

    Ross Ohlendorf, Jose Tabata, Phil Coke, and George Kontos

    Ohlendorf was never supposed to be very good, he's older, and nothing more than maybe a 6th/7th inning guy at BEST.

    Kontos has more upside than anyone but Tabata

    Coke isnt even close to a high prospect and is a long shot at being able to ever help us

    And Tabata has a wrist injury.

    My condolences, Ben. Prospects do not a team make.

    I feel your pain. As you know, we Tiger fans got burned by the "fabulous" Cabrera deal this season. We were supposed to be "odds-on favorites" to be in the WS this year. :lol:

    Aack.

    Well seems like they got the players wrong last night:

    I hope it works out. They definitely need pitching, but Nady was quite the asset.

    Well given Van Benschoten giving up a 3-Run HR in the 1st right now Karstens better be getting ready to start Aug 1 against the Cubs.

    Karstens debut was not too shabby, especially against our nemesis the Cubs! - Pirates blank Cubs, 3-0

    Jeff Karstens is currently perfect through six innings against Randy Johnson and the Diamondbacks!

    Pittsburgh 1 Arizona 0

    The players may not so much as look at him, but we're all Calvinists here :)

    I've got Karstens in a H2H league, and a perfect game would bring 75 bonus points alone.

    These will be the six hardest outs of Karsten's life.

    I don't know the numbers on it, but it sure seems like when a pitcher really has a shot at one that most perfect games/no hitters are broken up in the 8th or 9th inning.

    Indeed! I think everyone gets nervous, so a routine ground ball or fly ball is not so routine.

    4 outs to go and base hit! :doh:

    There it goes......going.......going.......gone.

    I hope they at least win the game.

    And to a guy who bats about .230 at that.

    Neither will I. I thought my squad had 75 bonus points coming to them. :rolleyes:

    To think that the Bucs would have once again been the highlight of Sports Center! But a hit and a walk later it becomes a mere side commentary.
