* The other "Rookie Who Will Change Everything," Mike Stanton, went 3-for-5 in his Major League debut for the Marlins. He should really change his name because the only stat that looks right next to that handle is BLOWN SAVE. [Miami Herald]

* STRASBURG!!!@!!@!!!!!!!111!!!!!!!!!##!!#$@#!!!234r2q3q4raq!!11!!!! [DC Sports Bog/Fox/La Times]
