Wednesday's normal visit from Jay Jaffe could not happen due to Jay's first appearance on MLB Network. So Jay found us a pinch hitter, Jason Collett, from Baseball Prospectus.

Collett filled in well, speaking to a wide range of topics. The Baltimore Orioles and El Pasoan Omar Quintanilla, Tampa Bay, the Angels Mike Trout and what is wrong with Zach Grinke since was traded from the Brewers. The Reds, will the Nationals shut down Strausburg, the N.L. West race between the Dodgers and Giants and finally AAA Baseball coming to El Paso.


"Here's the thing with the Angels, they lead the major leagues in blown saves with 17."
