I never thought I'd say this, but I'm really excited to watch Julian Tavarez pitch now. He's fun to watch -- when he's good. Check out his stats:

TAVAREZ'S LAST 8 GAMES STARTED:

W  L   G  GS   IP    H   R   ER  BB  SO  HR  ERA   BA    OBP   SLG   OPS
4  1   8  8    48.1  43  21  18  18  27  3   3.35  .235  .307  .350  .657  
His numbers aren't Cy Young deserving by any means, but they're just what we need when we've got other questions in the rotation. Tavarez has single-handedly kept Jon Lester and Clay Buchholz at their respective levels.

Good news! We've got a name for the Over The Monster game: On The Money. Thank BritSoxFan for that doozy. I like it because it's "OTM." Clever.

Last night's results for On the Money have been updated. Look on the left sidebar for the current standings. And a big thank you to everyone who participated. It really caught fire last night and I'm hoping for a lot more today. I've already decided on one prize for the grand winner, but I think I might throw in something else and maybe even reward the top 3 at the end of the year. So keep on playing to improve your chances of winning.

Here's today's form:

(In cheesy game show host voice) Good luck to everyone in today's contest and I hope you are (crowd chants) ON ... THE ... MONEY!
