Braves game had a great one one game 1 or 2 of the year.

Since 2006, cole hamels and tim hudson are two of only 3 pitchers to have 90 plus wins in the NL. Who is the 3rd?

I would not have guessed if I was given 100 names and got to eliminate 80 of them....

Tough one - my guess was Derek Lowe but he has only 82 wins in the NL since 2006.

Bronson Arroyo's been pretty good for Cincy, dunno if he's won that many though.

Yes, it's him. That's quite a surprise, my guesses were: Wainwright, Lincecum, Cain, Zambrano and Oswalt

Great deal for Cincy...for us? Not so much. We could have used a steady pitcher like Bronson at some points after 2006.

Drew signing was stupid. Now that it's done, he better produce.

Tough break for him. He was playing well and deserved better. Drew better play well, or the fans will eat him alive.

Yeah, I didn't like it at the time either, and still don't. It was a perfect time to give JI a shot to see what you had. The team was only going to be marginal and the expectations were low to start. Why not take advantage of that and give some of the younger guys a shot?

Just furious about seeing Iglesias down. Drew signing was unnecessary and..... costly.

My favorite baseball trivia question: Who is the only player to ever hit 2 grand slams in ONE inning?

Don't look up the answer. If you do, at least don't post the answer on here. I wanna see if anybody knows this. I remember watching this game as a kid, only reason I know the answer.

Nope, sorry. Mueller is the only person to ever hit one from both sides of the plate in the same game. He didn't do it in the same inning though.

John Valentin. Oh no...that's wrong.

It's either Tatis or Whiten from the Cards. I remember it but can't remember the exact player.

Had to look it up, I never would've guessed that.

That is a great trivia question.

Haha its one of those...I'll give it to ya though.

It's Fernando Tatis.

Here's a better one though. The SAME pitcher gave up both grand slams. Who was it?

i knew that arroyo one from doing research for a friend of mine this year. it's not completely crazy, arroyo eats innings and pitches at about league average. he plays for a team that has been able to put up runs for him. makes sense but it is a fun little stat.

tatis hit both grand slams off of chan ho park.

i love this one:

the pitcher who has k'd 4 in one inning the most times in mlb history?
