MLB Briefs
  • Roy Oswalt gave the Astros a much needed morale boost yesterday, pitching 7 shut-out innings, and allowing just 4 hits with 9 K's. Oswalt is 6-0 in his last 7 starts, with a 1.01 ERA & 7.86 K's/9IP. His 00 SPx RC #'d 1600 is currently selling in the $120's TAC range.
  • Rick Ankiel, the Cardinals' pitcher turned outfielder, has been holding his own since his call-up on 8/9. He had a super start, hitting .417 with 3 HR & 6 RBI in his first 3 games, but has since cooled off some. He's still batting .321, but only has 1 HR & 4 RBI in his last 11 games (which still isn't too bad!). His 99 Ultimate Victory RC has been averaging $13.25 TAC over the past couple of weeks. His 99 SP Top Prospects Auto was selling for around $30 TAC about a week after his debut, but I saw one sell this past week for $14.
  • Jered Weaver helped the Angels shut down their AL West rivals, the Mariners, 8-2. Weaver out dueled young Felix Hernandez, pitching 8 solid innings, and allowing just 1 ER with 5 K's. Weaver is having a decent '07 season, with a 10-6 record, a 3.79 ERA, 6.36 K's/9IP & 2.64 BB/9IP (not as good as last season when he went 11-2 with a 2.56 ERA and 7.68 K's/9IP & 2.41 BB/9IP). His 05 Bowman Chrome Draft Auto RC has been selling in the $40-45 TAC range. You can also find his BCD Ref Auto #'d 500 for almost the same price.
