A Note On Chris Shelton

As much as I like Chris Shelton, it is important to observe the opposing pitcher for his league-leading five home runs.

Scott Elarton (2)
R.A. Dickey (2)
John Koronka (1)

Three of the five blasts came at Ameriquest against pitchers who do not belong in the Major Leagues.  I think I went deep off Dickey's 65mph knuckler last night.  And Elarton had the fifth worst HR/9 in baseball last year.

So while I respect and admire the torrid start, keep in mind that Shelton has to face the Cleveland, Chicago, and Minnesota pitching staffs quite a bit.  He's been feasting on some of the worst pitchers in the game so far.

On the docket in the near future:  Kevin Millwood, Vicente Padilla, Freddy Garcia, Jose Contreras, and Jon Garland.  Expect him to slap Garcia around a bit, at the least.
