    Talk about the series here. Please no PBP in this thread. Unless otherwise noted all games are on CSN-H (for about 40% I guess).

    4-15 Erik Bedard, LHP vs. Tommy Milone, LHP 9:05

    4-16 Brad Peacock, RHP vs. A.J. Griffin, RHP 9:05

    4-17 Bud Norris, RHP vs. Bartolo Colon, RHP 2:35

    Gametracker is making it seem like Bedard is barely missing the plate. Is that the case?

    Oakland drew more walks in the first inning (5) than Chris Johnson drew for the Astros last season by May 25th.

    At least Clemens is pitching well and keeping things entertaining.

    More on Clemens. Just tried to barehand a high chopper. He called time and was showing the umpire and the dugout that his little finger was dislocated. Trainer came to the mound and popped it back into place as Clemens was smiling. Clemens took a couple of warmups and continued pitching.

    For at least tonight - the Bourn trade looks better.

    Clemens has impressed. If Bedard is injured, I would hope this game earned Clemens and opportunity to start.

    I think it's time for the "I'm not mad, I'm just really disappointed" talk with the bullpen. This is just horrendous. I really don't see how any of these guys have much of a future past this year, so why not bring up Stoffel and Chapman? You can't seem to blame Porter for misusing them because they have all sucked on amazing levels (outside of Fields and his 2 outs of work)...

    I just can't watch Cedeno and his slow working ways, Cruz and Ambriz have never really shown potential to my untrained eye (which is why I can't say too much), and Veras... why we signed him befuddled me in the first place.

    In 8 innings, the Astros walked the A's 8 times. in 2012, Alexei Ramirez walked 16 times in 621 PA.

    I don't see how Alexei Ramirez's walk total matters

    But I guess a better comparison is that the worst team in the majors at handing out free passes last year (TB) averaged 3.5 walks per game. I wish I could see how volatile that # is easily to see how often they walked as many as 8 guys in a game.

    That finger is going to make Clemens awfully popular with the ladies.

    Firmly entrenched on the bench. Is a DFA in his future?

    Not sure there would be a reason to send him to AAA again, we know he can hit down there . . .
