Jimmy Rollins hits the DL. So there goes one of your top two picks. Yeah, that’s no fun. If you didn’t draft him, you’re smiling pretty wide today. Not because one of your leaguemates is suffering (okay, maybe that’s part of the fun).Please, blog, may I have some more?
I know what you’re asking yourself, “Someone wanted to interview Grey?” Yes, but it’s not a porn site, so… Well, you should read it anyway. The interview was conducted by the great Tribe Blog, 1835 Miles Away. (99% of the reason they asked for the interview was because of my prediction the Tribe would make it to the World Series.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Yovanni Gallardo is due to pitch this weekend, so that means Dave Bush could be bumped. Unfortunately, I’m not sure it’s going to work out that way. Here’s the scoop, as the newsies used to say. Manny Parra was just plain wild today.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Joe Borowski landed on the DL, but he’s not coming back any time soon. He was put on the DL because he couldn’t throw a ball faster than 83 MPH. Do you think that’s going to change with some R & R? Rafael Soriano is on the DL, Peter Moylan is on the DL, so Manny Acosta takes over the closer role.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Felix Hernandez looked dominant yesterday. Most impressive thing, eight strikeouts to one walk. Least impressive thing, it was against the A’s. Most reason for concern, he threw 115 pitches. He’s already complained of arm fatigue, why is he pitching the ninth inning?Please, blog, may I have some more?
Guess what, ya’ll?! New closer in Atlanta. That’s right the Braves lost Peter Moylan to an injury so Manny Acosta takes over until Soriano returns. Soriano is due back soon, but he’s injury-prone so this may seem flippant, but Accardo came out of nowhere to save a lot of games last year.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Borowski heads to the DL and is probably out as the closer forever. Hallelujah! So now that the Indians have finally realized throwing an 82 MPH fastball probably isn’t the best way to close games, who takes over for Joe Borowski?Please, blog, may I have some more?
It’s very rare that a player of Big Papi’s caliber falls into this bad of a slump. Maybe burying that David Ortiz jersey had an adverse effect? Let’s look at some things we know. Ortiz bats third in arguably the best lineup in baseball.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Ok, I wasn’t going to report this until a month in, but since Rudy decided it was time, it’s time. As you can see from the league, through two weeks, I’m more ‘pert than some, and less ‘pert than two. What can we take away from my two weeks of league ‘perting?Please, blog, may I have some more?
Brian Bannister sports a .86 ERA, a miniscule WHIP and three wins AND beat Francisco Liriano. Can this continue? His strikeout rate is pretty poor, but in one of the ten team mixed leagues I’m in, I picked up Bannister today.Please, blog, may I have some more?
