Odds and ends

  • Apparently they are playing like 20 innings today, because that's a lot of scheduled pitchers.
  • Toronto recently acquired Michael Schwimer from the Philadelphia Phillies in exchange for minor league first baseman Art Charles, which is the most baseball-sounding name ever.
  • R.A. Dickey still makes funny faces when he pitches.
