1. Greg Smith With 6 pickoffs (next best is 3), he may have some chance at the single season record. The most since 1992 was 12, and 9-10 typically leads MLB. I don't know what the record is though.

2. Ziggy I think there's a very good chance we'll see Ziggy up with the A's pretty soon (when Petit goes back down, or Ellis is DL'd). They tried to turn him into Bradford, and his stats have been remarkably and uncannily similar to Bradford's. He's getting a ton of ground balls, dominating right-handed hitters, and has yet to give up a home run since going side-arm. He would be worth using as a roogy or a rtoogy in high leverage situations, and is fairly likely to be better than Andrew Brown generally.

3. Today's link o' horror I'm moving to Seattle.
