It was GP's 46th career victory at TCU. ...a few bonus 46s: Juan Gonzalez hit 46 home runs in 1993 to win his second straight AL home run title This is a screen-cap from the video for Tool's "Forty Six and 2"

Next scheduled start is Friday night in Pittsburgh. -Carpenter is 2-for-12 in his first three games back from injury.

  12. -Arrieta was shelled in his last outing, giving up 5 earned runs on 11 hits in just 4.1 IP. He drops to 8-7 on the year and his ERA jumped up to 4.67 - but the news gets worse, as it was discovered that he has a bone spur in his throwing elbow which will require surgery at some point. As of now, it hasn't been determined if that'll happen now or after the season. -Cashner has won his last three starts for the Orioles, going at least 6 innings in each and totalling 13 K's against just 2 walks in that span. He's now 9-3 on the year with a svelte 3.83 ERA, which has led to some speculation about his availability at the trade deadline. His first post-break start is scheduled for next Sunday against Tampa Bay. -Carpenter hasn't played since June 29 after being put on the DL with a lower back strain. Through 77 games, he's batting .216 with 10 HR, 28 RBI and a .706 OPS. -Holaday has hit safely in his last 6 appearances for the Marlins. He's only played in 16 games this year, but he's hitting .311 with 2 HR, 7 RBI and an .893 OPS. -Cron is 1 for his last 10, though the 1 was a HR. Through 24 total big league games, he's hitting .208 with 4 HR, 11 RBI and an .806 OPS. -Alex Young has made the most of his recent call-up to join the Diamondbacks. In his last outing, he tossed 6 no-hit innings on 71 pitches against the Rockies before being pulled. Through two starts and one relief appearance for Arizona, he's 2-0 with an 0.68 ERA in 13.1 total IP with 9 K's against 2 walks. No word yet on his place in the rotation after the break, but the D'Backs do play the Rangers out at The Temple on July 16-17. -Tyler Alexander (Tigers) and Stefan Crichton (D'Backs) are back at Triple-A after very respectable showings in their brief call-ups. Riley Ferrell was waived by the Marlins and, as a Rule 5 pick, returned to the Astros organization where he's pitched 4 scoreless IP in his first three relief appearances for Double-A Corpus Christi.
  13. Our current 53: John Lanz A few memorable 53s: Max Eubank David Johnson ...and a few bonus 53s: Mark Stepnoski Dirk dropped 53 on the Rockets on December 2, 2004
  14. Brian Howard was just named the Texas League's Pitcher of the Week for his last two starts in which he tossed a combined 13 IP giving up just 1 one, striking out 8 and walking just 1. For the year at Double-A Midland (A's), he's now 7-5 with a 2.75 ERA and 88 K's against 33 walks. He's pitched at least 6 innings in his last five starts for the Rockhounds.
  15. Alex Isola has been promoted to Class A by the Twins' organization, where he'll join the Cedar Rapids Kernels. In 7 games in the Rookie Leagues, Isola hit 10-for-25 (.400) with 2 doubles, 1 HR, 8 RBI and a 1.029 OPS.

  17. Our current 55: Kellton Hollins A few memorable 55s: Joey Hunt Anthony Alabi TCU shut out Baylor, 27-0, in the 2007 season opener. It was GP's 55th win at TCU. Jim Swink was a 1st-team All-American in 1955, finished 2nd in the Heisman voting and landed an SI cover A few bonus 55s: Lee Roy Jordan Leight Vander Esch
  18. Our current 56: Austin Myers A few memorable 56s: Chris Bradley Tracy Simien Josh Carraway scored a touchdown on a 56-yard fumble recovery return against Baylor in 2015. Norman Hamilton was a 1st-team All American lineman in 1956 A few bonus 56s: Hollywood Henderson Sergei Zubov

  20. It may be, but it seems like it needs to be pointed out given the number of people that think our current moron president isn't a moron.
  21. Last night, our moron president had this to say about the nascent American military during the Revolutionary War: “Our army manned the air, it rammed the ramparts, it took over the airports, it did everything it had to do, and at Fort McHenry, under the rockets’ red glare, it had nothing but victory.”
  22. A few memorable 57s: TCU beat Syracuse, 28-27, in the Cotton Bowl on January 1, 1957. John Ruthstrom Zarnell Fitch in his playing days Cory Grant Davion Pierson I think this photo is from the right game (vs. West Virginia in 2015), but not the exact play - when Jaden Oberkrom kicked a school record 57-yard field goal right before halftime TreVontae Hights scored on a 57-yard TD reception from Michael Collins in last year's season opener against Southern
  23. In the high school section, yeah, a great deal of what you see comes from a questionnaire the coaches fill out. That's where you get some really comical heights/weights/40 times, etc. The college section is mostly the work of whatever writer DCTF contracts with to write each indidivual team preview. They take guidance from offical depth charts provided by the schools, but editorialize on them somewhat (though not nearly as much as, say, Phil Steele - who'll sometimes put a top recruit above even an entrenched returning starter).
  24. A few memorable 59s: Terrance Maiden Tayo Fabuluje TCU and Air Force played to a 0-0 tie in the Cotton Bowl on New Year's Day, 1959
  25. I'm in the middle of this one right now. While it centers on President Polk and the Mexican War, it really covers a pretty large contextual swath of American politics and foregin policy in the mid-1800s. Pretty entertaining read so far.
