Aaron Harang Vs. Phil Hughes

More please.
More please.

First of all this is not a draft thread. That doesn't mean you can't talk about the draft here. You can do pretty much whatever you want. If you do do something you aren't supposed to you'll know when I or one of the other mods gently and politely bans you for life no questions asked.

I'm still amazed that the Mariners managed to find a way to piss me off yesterday. All the losses over the years should have painfully crafted a Smaug-like shell for me. Yet there go the Mariners locating the one missing scale in my belly and shooting an arrow of defeat directly in it. Oh well. The next time the team goes 0-3,287,897 with RISP only to give up 5 runs in the 15th only to score 5 of their own on a 2-strike, 2-out grand slam and then proceed to Noesi all over the magic I'll be prepared.

Vernon Wells in April: .911 OPS. Since: 543 OPS

I like Vernon Wells' 1st half of the season less than half as well as it deserves but it's nice to see him return to his true talent level, because the Yankees really don't deserve good luck.

Non-baseball aside: Today is an excellent day to observe the sacrifices made by those that came before us, and to consider the events that have shaped our small corner of the world. Thanks to the inimitable Matthew Carruth for the reminder on the latter.
