Open Thread: Cubs vs. Phillies, Tuesday, 8/2

I can see that all of us could use a ballgame to take our minds off ticket brokers, and steroid suspensions -- and there's been another one today -- Ryan Franklin of the Mariners.

Didn't appear to help him much -- 6-11 with a 4.61 ERA this year, and 33-46 with a 4.19 ERA lifetime.

Oh, no. Not again -- a pitcher with a terrible BB/K ratio, a ton of homers allowed, and a high ERA. These guys scare me to death. So I'm not saying a word, just presenting the stats.
