5/12: Open Game Thread

catcher/DHs can be so depressing - Jason Miller

Tommy Milone was supposed to be Joe Saunders. He is something more than Joe Saunders, at least for now; the same could once be said of Joe Saunders.

In his daily notes, professional baseball writer Carson Cistulli provides a NERD score for each ballgame. The NERD score seeks to measure the watchability of each game, based on how exciting each starting pitcher and team are. Joe Saunders received a NERD score of zero. Scores below zero, it should be noted, are rounded up to zero.

The Oakland Athletics have a catcher batting fourth, a different catcher batting fifth, and a different catcher actually catching and batting sixth. Seeing this makes one feel a little better about the fact that the Mariners have first basemen hitting fourth through sixth.
