Dark day...almost

Sometime soon, I'm going to go to one post per weekend rather than two. But not this weekend (which means that, since this little notice is most definitely something, there will have been at least 67 straight days with a post before I go one without).

I was hoping to have a special guest blogger today, but that's not going to happen yet, so that will be tomorrow. Then on Monday, I'll try to be a little clearer about my position on all this Strasburg stuff, by way of a response to Ron Rollins' comment to yesterday's little bit of nonsense (and presumably to tHeMARksMiTh's Sunday post on the same topic).

In the meantime, consider this: since May 23 (the date of his return from the illness and passing of his mother), Delmon Young is "hitting" .217/.226/.233 with 27 strikeouts in 16 games. That's a .459 OPS, from a left fielder who contributes absolutely nothing in the field. There are 53 times since 2007 where a pitcher has had at least 25 PA in a season and managed to top a .459 OPS.
