Grilli played college baseball, even though he was drafted by New York Yankees in MLB draft of 1994. He played for Seton Hall University, where he was credited with striking out 18 batters in a single game, which broke the Big East record held by Charles Nagy.

In 1997, Jason Grilli was drafted by the San Francisco Giants in their first round draft. He was already popular for his good deliveries, and since he was a pick in the high draft, he quickly became the top prospect. In 1998, Grilli started playing professional baseball with Shreveport Captains, a Double-A team, and with Fresno Grizzlies, which is a Triple-A team. Pitching in 123 1/3 innings for the Captains, Grilli managed 100 strikeouts and an ERA of 3.79. Pitching for the Grizzlies in eight games, Grilli had a 2-3 record and 5.14 ERA. In 1998, he was named All-Star in Texas League.

<![CDATA[Tim Lincecum Captures Second Cy Young]]> http://www.sanfranciscogiantsnews.com/mcgauley/weblog/8788/tim-lincecum-captures-second-cy-young.html http://www.sanfranciscogiantsnews.com/mcgauley/weblog/8788/tim-lincecum-captures-second-cy-young.html Thu, 19 Nov 2009 22:19:14 PST  Just sheer domination that didn't necessarily show up in the win column! Fifteen victories equals a Cy Young?  Let's look at ALL of the numbers to really appreciate how great Tim Lincecum has been through his first two-full seasons with the Giants (he did throw 146-plus innings in 24 starts in 2007). Back-to-back Cy Young Awards do not come around very often (see: N.L. stand-outs RJ and Maddux, each with four straight, and Sandy Koufax with three of four; Clemens, Palmer, McClain, and Pedro each went back-to-back in the A.L. ([Clemens did it twice; ten years apart]). The difference? Lincecum has done it twice in two full years by the age of 25! So how do you follow up a CY YOUNG AWARD WINNING SEASON??? You work even harder to improve (by perfecting a third pitch), and that's exactly what Lincecum did after winning his first CY in 2008 with an 18-and-5 record, and 265 strikeouts in 227 innings. Lincecum worked 225 and one-third innings this year, and went 15-and-7 with 261 strikeouts. No, that doesn't sound any better until we delve deeper. Check this out - in roughly the same number of innings pitched, Lincecum allowed fourteen

Managers Mike Scioscia of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and Jim Tracy of the Colorado Rockies were named the Managers of the Year in the American and National Leagues respectively today.  Ron Gardenhire of the Twins and Tony La Russa of the St. Louis Cardinals finished second in the voting in the respective leagues.

Of course I wish Gardy would have won the award in the AL but I don't have a huge problem with this.  Mike Scioscia is a great manager and his team plays much like the Twins are supposed to play, not a lot of stars, just a bunch of good players with low to no egos who do things the right way and win most of the time.  Also remember that his team went through a really tough situation earlier this year when rookie Nick Adenhart was killed by a drunk driver after his firt major league win this year.  To guide a team, after an event such as that, to the ALCS can't be an easy thing.

Pettitte, 37, a two-time All-Star selection who has accumulated the most victories of any MLB pitcher since 1995, allowed only seven hits and one earned run in 6 1/3 innings.


“He did what he has done his whole career,” said Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter of the 2001 ALCS MVP.


The native of Texas is set to make his eighth appearance in the World Series when the Yankees host the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday evening.


Many onlookers have long considered Pettitte to be a serviceable pitcher who is not among baseball’s elite hurlers.


Those skeptics are simply incorrect.

Now I assume most of the Boston fans are screaming and their faces are steaming with team colors and pride.  But we have to look at match ups in the remaining schedule.  The Red Sox have a tougher remaining schedule than the Wild Card leader Texas Rangers and the only other team with an outside chance in Tampa Bay, has a tougher remaining season schedule than either and it would be one of the more amazing stretch runs if they make it.  The Red Sox have 20 games left against teams that are trying to make the playoffs, this of course comes with 6 games against all of Boston's beloved Johnny Damon and the New York Yankees, 6 games against newly acquired division rival Tampa Bay, who play tough at home, and 3 games with the Angels.  Out of the 20 playoff type team games left, there are 8 interesting games between the White Sox and Red Sox.  I'm not going to predict any winners from these games {insert 2005 playoff flashback here} but will be some of the most intriguing match ups of the season as Chicago has bolstered their hitting and pitching with the addition of Alexei Rios and SP Jake Peavy.  Peavy has been rumored for a late August return or early September return and could be a factor.  The White Sox are doing everything they can to try to win the Central this season.

<![CDATA[The Los Angeles Dodgers numbers are Misleading]]> http://www.losangeleslakersnews.com/whiterob/weblog/8238/the-los-angeles-dodgers-numbers-are.html http://www.losangeleslakersnews.com/whiterob/weblog/8238/the-los-angeles-dodgers-numbers-are.html Fri, 07 Aug 2009 14:18:48 PDT Baseball is a game of numbers.

When it comes to the Los Angeles Dodgers this season, their impressive numbers seem to indicate why they have the best record in baseball thus far. But when looked upon closer inspection, my instincts tell me that the Dodgers impressive numbers fail to tell the whole truth.  

Additionally, some of the unorthodox numbers, the numbers that are usually swatted away like a fly, reveal that the Blue Crew may be in a bit of trouble come October.  

In terms of hitting, the Dodgers numbers are solid. They have some of the most talented young hitters in the league. With players like James Looney, Russell Martin, Andre Ethier and Matt Kemp, the young guns have a 279 batting average, good enough for second in the league. Add in Manny Ramirez to the mix and the Dodgers are also seventh in the majors in runs and sixth in RBI’s.

The story of James getting dunked on during a pickup game at the LeBron James Skills Academy by now has made the rounds several times over -- not to mention piqued the interest of basketball fans of what that scene might've looked liked.

Hmm. ... My first thought that comes to mind is Michael Jordan reversing course baseline against Patrick Ewing and throwing down in a classic Bulls-Knicks confrontation. My second thought is of Nate Robinson using Dwight Howard as a prop and jumping over him in the NBA Slam Dunk competition in February.

In any case, I began to wonder what the cameramen recording the event must have thought of The Chosen Brat after he reportedly dispatched a Nike official to take possession of the tapes.

I guess this guy hasnt learned that drinking and driving do not mix everyone knows how a human is put on jeoperdy when someone who is drunk steps into a car. Just this April we lost an Angel player due to a drunk driver. This guy lost my respect, hopefully he understands and does not allow this to happen again.
