Notes and Stuff
Spent the morning at The Best of the Midwest Soccer Tournament near Lowell, Ind. and then headed back for a game. I’ll be back there tomorrow morning for that highly-anticipated U-11 Boys game against Rockford United.
Anyway … Bobby Jenks is one save shy of 100 for his career … today’s starter, John Danks, ranks among AL leaders in ERA (8th, 2.94), opponents OBP (12th, .294), baserunners per 9.0 IP (12th, 10.9), quality starts (T12th, six) and opponents BA (16th, .239).
Danks’ line through nine starts in 2007: 3-5, 4.59 ERA, .282 OBA, 10 HR allowed
Through 2008: 3-3, 2.94, .239, 3 HRA
Orlando Cabrera leads the majors in fielding percentage by **** at .996
