BASEBALL: Hot Properties

More random thoughts:

*Victor Martinez has arrived; 3 RBI tonight moves the Cleveland catcher into the top 10 in the AL.

*Troy Glaus being out for the season would be just a huge blow to the Angels.

*Heard on WFAN tonight: a Yankee fan speaking optimistically about Tanyon Sturtze. Yes, there is a God.

*Rich Harden: 37.1 IP, 2 HR, 17 BB, 40 K. Yes, he's allowed 39 hits, but Harden shows every sign of joining the elite of the Oakland rotation.

*The Greek God of Walks is in the house. And he could be here to stay.

re: Troy Glaus- Some in the Angels blogosphere are suggesting that this isn't just the end of his season, but the end of his career. I donít share that pessimistic view, but I would say he is now officially a full-time DH. Thereís nothing sadder then a full-time DHÖ

For very selfish reasons, I certainly hope you are right about Harden and Martinez.

With the former starting tonight, however, Iím fearful of jinxing him.
