What Did We Learn on the Show Tonight, Craig?

1. Claiborne can bunt. Maybe he can teach a couple of other guys.

2. "Ryan came home when Veras threw a pitch over Murphy's head, and Murphy drove in Solarte with a single to right to make it 4-2." Ah, Cubs, you are learning the magic of Jose.

3. Jeff Samardzija has an ERA of 1.46. He's still in a winless streak, now at 16 games. Wtf??

4. "The Yankees had runners on second and third with two out when Derek Jeter grounded out to end the rally." This is becoming awfully familiar.

5. Dave Robbie is 9 for 9.

6. "Yankees reliever Shawn Kelley had a setback in his recovery from a back injury. Manager Joe Girardi said the right-hander woke up feeling stiff Tuesday." Enjoy it, son, that stops happening much after you cross 50.

7. "The Yankees tied it [in the 9th] when Ichiro Suzuki sent a grounder to shortstop Starlin Castro." He sucks. Down to .359. Cut 'im now.

8. "Whitley was solid in his second start since being called up from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. He gave up a run and six hits in 4 1/3 innings." Laugh all you want, the guy is about five times better than CC. His ERA in two limited starts is 1. One. Uno. The first nine innings have gone pretty good. Ya never know.

9. Aceves pitched an entire inning and gave up no runs, one hit with one K. Joe will pitch him the next five days straight to make sure his ERA keeps hovering just under 6.00.
