Has Anyone Noticed...

Has anyone noticed that:

- Gregg Zaun went three for three tonight and still isn't batting over .200?

- Arthur Rhodes hasn't given up a run yet this season? Yup, that same Arthur Rhodes.

- Jason Bay hit a double and a homer in the same inning and drove in four runs in the 12 run Red Sox inning?

- Emilio Bonifacio of the Marlins is batting a buck, eighty-five in May and is down to .250 for the season and is still leading off every game for Florida?

- Ryan Franklin has nine saves already? Oh yeah, he hasn't given up a run yet this season either.

- Brian Bannister is 3-0 with a 1.48 ERA after being recalled from the minors?

- Ken Griffey, Jr. has more walks this season than hits?

- The Mariners have lost seven of their last ten games?

- Ichiro Suzuki has as many strikeouts as runs scored this season?

- Benji Molina of the Giants has already driven in 27 runs?

- Jason Marquis went 0-2 Thursday night and is still batting over .300?

- Brian Giles has been leading off for the Padres and is batting .164?

- Robinson Cano of the Yankees has only one hit in his last 25 At Bats?

- Nick Punto of the Twins is batting .190 but still gets on ESPN's Web Gems every night?

- Jason Bay has as many RBI as David Ortiz and J. D. Drew combined?

- Carlos Beltran is batting .382?

- Miguel Tejada finally hit his first homer of the season Thursday? Wonder where all that power went.

- Mark Buehrle is 5-0?

- Mariano Rivera has already given up as many homers (4) this year as he did in all of 2007 and 2008?

- Bobby Abreu is batting .340 and is 11 for 11 in stolen base attempts?

Oh, and if anyone wondered whether the Dodgers would feel sorry for themselves losing Manny Ramirez for 50 games, they scored six runs in the first inning Thursday night.

I was at the Sox game yesterday. Buehrle was amazing. Took a perfect game into the 7th. I really hope he wins 20 games this year.
