First Butler, now Buckner.

Charlie Riede/AP

5 IP, 7 H, 1 ER, 2 BB, 1 K; season/career ERA: 1.80

POSTSCRIPT: Gil Meche, who receives an AL-worst 3.99 runs per start from his offense, is pitching now against Causto Farmona.

POSTSCRIPT 2: Name game, let's play. Name the team these exotic-named players play for...
  • Asdrubal Cabrera
  • Ubaldo Jimenez
  • Jair Jurrjens
  • Radhames Liz
You should be able to get at least one of these.


  1. Asdrubal Cabrera -- indians 2b
    Ubaldo Jimenez -- rockies sp
    Jair Jurrjens -- tiger sp
    Radhames Liz -- not sure...

  2. Baltimore.

    A few new ones: Edinson Volquez (Edison? E-dinson? Ed-in-son?), Gorkys Hernandez (speaks for itself), Alejandro De Aza (straight out of a Gabriel Garcia Marquez novel)...

    Baseball is funny.
