    Move over, Haren, Soriano and Motte! There's a new all-star-turned-BP-machine in town!

    Speaking of bad pitchers with recognizable names.....Fernando Rodney!
  3. Poll: I'm not gonna admit I was wrong about Haren since...

    I'm not gonna admit I was wrong about Haren since I didn't really take any particular stance besides "Theo and Jed are obviously looking beyond peripherals here," but I will give officially give my...

    I can sell you VHS of the final game of the 1999 season, during which Steve Stone ponders a potential platoon between Cole Liniak and Shane Andrews.
  6. Poll: The reason is that if the best team in baseball...

    The reason is that if the best team in baseball can manage to go, 18-19 the rest of the season, the Cubs would have to go 26-12. Which looks doable until you consider that the Cardinals' 2 worst 37...

    I remain 100% in favor of the wild card play in game, but damn, it's so frustrating that this could all end because Liriano/Cole decides to pitch just a little better than Arrieta one day. Can we...

    Sticky: I'm not sure if there's data our there for or...

    I'm not sure if there's data our there for or against it, but it sure seems like pitchers are worse at hitting than they used to be. Which would make sense, given a seemingly increased emphasis on...
  9. Poll: If we're doing that, I sure hope the Pirates...

    If we're doing that, I sure hope the Pirates throw Cole rather than Liriano. I'll take my chances with the guy who has never pitched more than 150 innings against our lefty mashers over the vet lefty...

    Was thinking about how no DH affects things for the Tigers so I drew up the probable lineups. Which is dumb, but hey, at least I'm excited about baseball.

    Tuesday

    Kinsler
    Iglesias
    Cabrera

  11. Sticky: Not that I don't understand the concept, but I...

    Not that I don't understand the concept, but I think his value at catcher has the potential to be grossly overstated because of that. I personally prefer that a guy receiving every single pitch over...

    So ummm....why the hell is this game starting at 3?
  13. Poll: *Injury replacement must be someone in the...

    *Injury replacement must be someone in the organization before September 1.
  14. Poll: Gotta be on the 25 man before September 1, unless...

    Gotta be on the 25 man before September 1, unless there's an injury, in which case it can be anyone from the 40 man.
  15. Sticky: The Clayton Richard support is officially out of...

    The Clayton Richard support is officially out of hand. I can't imagine the dire state of a bullpen that would elect to insert him into anything resembling a close game.

    He's a bad pitcher that can...
  16. Poll: Well, sticking with the "based on what we know...

    Well, sticking with the "based on what we know about Kane" theory, we know that he thinks he's a ****ing god in Buffalo, wherein he is constantly surrounded by an entourage of douchebros whose only...
  17. Sticky: Well, you kind of said it yourself. There's...

    Well, you kind of said it yourself. There's winter ball, and there's spring training. It's not THAT much effort to get him some instruction and throw him out there. For all of his defensive...
  18. Sticky: I like ABE just fine, but he absolutely does not...

    I like ABE just fine, but he absolutely does not have any insight into the front office. He has insightful things to say about them, sure. But that's where it stops.

    Well, "poor man" might still be giving him too much credit. But I hear ya. It's nice to have a manager that is at least willing to explore the possibility. If he plays on days where his defense is...
  20. Poll: My thoughts on Clayton Richard in the bullpen are...

    My thoughts on Clayton Richard in the bullpen are the same as my thoughts on Casey Coleman making the roster as a long reliever like 3 years ago. It sounds fine in theory to have someone to eat up...

    Independent of the question whether Castro's bat is worth the effort......why not?

    Not worried about it long term. I think routes to flyballs is about reps more than anything; I don't buy the idea that he lacks the instincts to do it. That's contrary to most of the scouting reports...

    Yeah, I feel stupid for possibly being tricked into believing he had totally rehabbed his value 3 days ago, when we presumably wouldn't give him up for some combination of Padres pitchers.

    You're suggesting Russell could be removed from the roster over Richard?
