Don't look now, but Tyler Duffey is pitching very well in Rochester.

He's pitched eight innings so far, all in relief, in three games, and he's done something that's a bit odd: He has a 2-1 record with NO EARNED RUNS allowed. (He's allowed two unearned runs.)

He's struck out 10 in 8 innings, and has issued no walks and only 2 hits (That's a 0.25 WHIP ra...

Today, Starter Lance Lynn pitches at noon, centr...

• Clearly Ervin Santana cannot be the opening day starter – h...

On Tuesday, I checked the 25-man rosters of all 30 MLB teams, checking not for quality, but quantity - of players by positions. While this may not be the opening day roster, it was probably close.
Of the 30 teams:
• Most had 12 pitchers. Two teams - the Athletics and the Mets had 11 pitchers. the Mets actually only had 24 players on the 25-man roster. The...
