• As David Pinto notes, Manny Corpas has now blown three saves, after blowing only three saves all last season. I like Corpas. I expected him to pitch well this season. But it seems to me that a lot of Rockies fans assumed that all the young players who did so well last year would do roughly as well this year. Which wasn't (and isn't) likely. • ShysterBall offers a well-reasoned piece about Curt Flood's Hall of Fame candidacy. I'm actually a little bit surprised that this keeps coming up, but it seems like once these things get started they tend to live forever. • This story includes the only photo you're ever likely to see of Albert Pujols trying to nab a guy stealing second base. In other news, the Brewers are still carrying 14 pitchers. About which, the less said the better, probably.
