Shaun Marcum, RH (1-0, 2.57/0.79) v. Steve Trachsel, RH (1-1, 3.00/1.25)


Game time is 7:05 on MASN2.


Trachsel has pitched 12 innings this season, walking six and striking out three. He is a complete mystery to me at this point. How he skirts by with numbers like that is puzzling. It shouldn't happen. It CAN'T happen. God, is he wily.


Shaun Marcum is 26, doesn't have overpowering stuff, but has good command and could grow up to be a one of those control freaks that sticks around until he's 100 years old. He could grow up to be Steve Trachsel, I guess.


But this a very serious question. Shaun Marcum...or John Corbett in disguise?

You make the call.


FUN STATS, ETC.



  • Trax has been quite successful in his career against Toronto, going 6-0 in seven starts with a 3.12 ERA.

  • Adam Jones is 7-for-21 this season at Camden Yards. He's 4-for-20 on the road.

  • We have eight wins. George Sherrill has six saves. Pull on the collar of your shirt and go, "Nyeee nyeee nyeee!"

  • Melvin Mora has 15 career homers against the Jays. The only team he's hit more dingers against is Tampa Bay (24).
