Paging rcade: please haul down my Murali post - Bismarck beat me to it while I was mucking about with videos and pictures!

We should probably pull down mine or at least combine the two as yours has more content.

If it was up to me, we'd keep yours, JJ. Mr Bismark: I mean no offense, I just think JJ's is a more complete post. Why are walking towards me? Please put that cricket bat down. Oh my god, you're giving me that Muttiah Murilitharan look. Aaaaaaahhhhhh!!!!!!

Stephen Strasburg has now set a record for most consecutive starts at the beginning of a career, where K>IP for every start (9). The previous record holder was also a young fastballer named Herb Score.

On the Strasburg news, I saw a little blip on ESPN last night that his 75 Ks since his first start on June 8 are the most in the majors in that span.

I still have yet to see Strasburg pitch because Major League Baseball has deemed that Raleigh is in the DC baseball market. That's just crazy.

The season of Yankee wistfulness continues, with Yogi Berra in the hospital, and now, RIP Ralph Houk.

Note: The record for Strasburg is K>=IP, not K>IP.

Anyone know the last time a Canadian rider was in the top ten at the TdF?

Spitz, Steve Bauer finished fourth in 1988.

On the tune of NoMich, I hate MLB blackouts. Living in Iowa takes out the White Sox, Twins, Cubs, Cardinals, Royals, and Brewers. So on any given night, can't watch almost half the games being played. It's probably worse somewhere up where there are more teams close together, but it still quite annoys me.

That's OK, Salt Lake City is in the Diamondbacks' market AND the Rockies'. 525 miles one way, 535 the other.
