Igawa Sharp, Traber Even Sharper
Igawa pitched 2 innings with 2 strikeouts and no hits or walks against the Blue Jays yesterday. I suppose that means he looked better than when he served up the grandslam against the college team. What has been overlooked during yesterday's rain shortened perfect game is the efforts of Billy Traber. A non-roster invite, Traber pitched one inning with 3 strikeouts. If he keeps up that kind of production, he'll have 180 strikeouts in 60 innings by seasons end. Mussina on the other hand, will give up 540 hits, 180 of them homeruns, have 360 earned runs and an 18.00 ERA in 180 innings. Not too good.
