Buchholz Done, Lackey’s Chance To Stop Being An Idiot

Twitter has let me down of late (doesn’t help trying to break trades after a couple cocktails either), but word on that beast is that last year’s American League ERA leader, Clay Buchholz, has a stress fracture in his back and is likely to miss the remainder of the season.  I do not believe this …

Forget Beltran, Get Me This Guy

The All-Star game is behind us and now it is time to look towards the MLB trade deadline.  Theo has made it clear that he will be looking for an OF bat prior to July 31 and if I had my choice that guy would be Hunter Pence.  Pence may not be as sexy of …

AGon to Roam Around The Outfield Tomorrow

Let me start off by saying I do not envy Tito’s position right now.  Ortiz has been one of the best hitters in the American League this year and you obviously can’t sit him for like 6 straight series, the offense has been struggling during this NL tour, and you would have to be deranged …

Padres Walk Past Sox

Alfredo Aceves did his best Rick “Wildthing” Vaughn impression last night,  giving up four runs on four hits and six walks while throwing a career high 98 pitches during a 5 IP no decision.  Filling it for a sick Josh Beckett, Aceves had trouble finding the strike zone putting the Sox in an early 4-1 …

What Happened This Weekend?

Just returned from Las Vegas, got through the Yanks series then everything after that was a a blur.  What happened in the games last weekend?  Did the MLB switch to NFL rules while I was gone?  Did Roberto Luongo start every game for the Blue Jays?  Silly Canucks. Was Lebron some how involved with this? …

The Resurrection of David Ortiz

Hector Noesi had never faced David Ortiz before. He was in his second inning of work, mopping up for starter Freddy Garcia, who got whacked harder than a piñata at a second grader’s birthday party. Noesi had walked Adrian Gonzalez to start S also. Product organic netabletspills works. Real’tatoo scalp had go and does also …
