MLB Briefs
  • D-Rays ace Scott Kazmir had a dominating outing on 9/10, shutting down the Red Sox 1-0. Kazmir pitched 7 innings, allowing 5 hits 0 runs & 2 BB, with 10 K's. He out dueled veteran Curt Schilling, who also had a solid start, going 6 innings and allowed 5 hits, 1 run, 1 BB with 5 K's. In 5 starts against Boston, Kazmir is 1-2 with a 2.64 ERA & 8.8 K's/9 IP. If he played for a better team, he probably would've been 3-2 (in his 2 no decisions, he didn't allow a single run, pitching 12 shutout innings). There haven't been too many sales for Kazmir's Auto rookies this month. His 02 UD Prospect Premiers Auto XRC is averaging around $41 TAC.
  • Yovani Gallardo has started off the month of September very strong. In his first two starts, he's 2-0 with a 0.00 ERA and is averaging 8.31 K's/9 IP. A great turnaround after his terrible August, when he went 3-3 in six starts, with a season-worst 7.55 ERA. His 04 Donruss Elite EE Auto #'d 803 is selling in the high $40's this month, and his 04 SP Prospects Auto #'d 400 is averaging around $110 TAC.
  • Wily Mo Pena had a hot night on 9/10 vs. the Marlins, going 3-for-4 with 2 HR & 3 RBI. Collectors have been waiting a long time for the 25-year-old slugger to find the right team to give him the chance to have a breakout season. Hopefully the Nationals will be one. His 99 Bowman Chrome RC can probably be found for less than $5 TAC on auction. I'm keeping my eye out for deals on his 99 Bowman Chrome Refractor.
