This Is What We Blog About When We Blog About Brad Halsey 

Man goes to New York City, where he used to pitch, and pitches seven innings of lights-out shutout ball. 113 pitches, sure, but 6 strikeouts and only 1 walk.

And the bullpen. Two innings, 26 pitches, 1 walk, and 3 strikeouts. Thanks go out to you, Messrs. Koplove and Valverde!

Even better, the offense decided to give him some breathing room, the most breathing room they've given any pitcher this year. In the end, a 7-0 Diamondbacks victory over the Mets.

Pythagoras, thou art our friend for today!

Every starter got on base, each starter got a hit with the exception of Luis Gonzalez, who's reached 1,000 strikeouts for his career.

Sorry, I'm swamped for time today. More later. Or maybe not. I'm not as lights out as Brad Halsey.

obscenity you, Steinbrenner!
