Now that Shawn Boskie has gone head to head with the best pitchers in the American League--Toronto's David Cone, Kansas City's Kevin Appier, New York's Jack McDowell and Baltimore's Mike Mussina--the Angel right-hander is getting the hang of this whole David vs. Goliath thing. "You've got to be real sharp or you're done," Boskie said. Boskie was neither Monday night against the Baltimore Orioles. He gave up four runs in the second inning and was hit hard through the seventh.

Angel starter Shawn Boskie threw a body-block at the Oakland Athletics Thursday, and chipped two teeth for his trouble. He threw mostly strikes at the Seattle Mariners Saturday, and watched the Angel bullpen butcher his victory. Suffice to say, it's been a tough week for the right-hander, trying to earn respect from his new teammates and a spot in the rotation. Certainly he got the Angels' attention by charging into the midst of Thursday's bench- and bullpen-clearing brawl with the A's.

The last Angel you'd expect to see in the middle of a bench-clearing brawl would be pitcher Shawn Boskie, who has a mild-mannered demeanor and spends much of his time before games reading religious literature. But sure enough, that was Boskie sprinting from the dugout to the mound to body slam Oakland pitcher Jim Corsi in the bottom of the seventh inning Thursday night, after Corsi had hit Tim Salmon with a pitch.

The Toronto Blue Jays, two-time defending World Series champions with one of baseball's most potent lineups, were shut out Monday by the mighty Shawn Boskie. Shawn who? Not Shawn Buskie, as was announced in the SkyDome press box after the Angels' 2-0 victory before 31,303. It's Shawn Boskie, who, if he pitches many more games such as Monday's will have his name pronounced correctly and will stay in one place long enough for people to remember his name.

Bobby Bonilla of the New York Mets was suspended for two games and fined an undisclosed amount for his actions in Monday night's game against the Chicago Cubs. Bonilla ran out to the mound with a bat after Cub pitcher Shawn Boskie hit him with a pitch. Bonilla also threw umpire Larry Poncino to the ground in the ensuing melee. Bonilla has appealed the suspension, and the punishment will be delayed pending a hearing.
