Chad Qualls is probably done for the season. The closer shituation isn’t going to be pretty in Arizona, unfortunately. We’re looking at a closerousel. I’d list the candidates in this order: Juan Gutierrez, Clay Zavada, Esmerling Vasquez, Daniel Schlereth and Blaine Boyer.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Nyjer Morgan was back in the lineup to steal two bases in the first inning, then he left with a broken hand. Bunt, go feet first and get back in there! One of my ‘pert teams was pulling too far away in power, so last week I made a trade for steals and saves.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Evan Longoria went 0-for-4 yesterday. He’s been kinda terrible for about three months now. Man, third base is a minefield. Now I’m not putting Longoria in the Wright Sucks Then Gets Conked On The Head box. No, he hasn’t been nearly that bad.Please, blog, may I have some more?
The Mets infirmary added a new member yesterday with Johan Santana complaining of elbow soreness. M-E-S-S… Mess, Mess, Mess… I can’t remember another team that has been this Kotchman-bitten. Now pitching for the New York Mets… Angel Pagan. He will also lead-off.Please, blog, may I have some more?
When doctors said Aaron Harang is going to have a useless part of his body removed, everyone in the Reds clubhouse thought the same thing, “What is Willy Taveras doing in Harang’s body?” If Dusty were a doctor, he would left Harang’s appendix in a few more innings.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Julio Borbon has been running around like a chicken without its head or maybe Borbon is *pinkie to mouth* a Wild Turkey. Yesterday, he even hit a home run. The word out of the mean streets of Arlington was he’d sit once Cruz returned.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Drew Stubbs will replace Willy T. (<–Sounds like characters from a blaxploitation film. And neither are African-American. Weird!) Stubbs might get the shaft vs. righties but he can be baadasssss for speed. Drew Stubbs was selected a few picks before Travis Snider in the first round of the 2006 draft.Please, blog, may I have some more?
I’m sure even Kevin Gregg can’t believe he held the Cubs closer job as long as he did. After witnessing Gregg’s sixth blown save and 12th gopher ball on Monday night, Piniella went into the locker room and flipped a table, screaming at a young, non-mustachioed Willie Randolph… Oh, wait, that was The Bronx is Burning.Please, blog, may I have some more?
The Tigers added Aubrey Huff to complement Jim Leyland’s puff. When the Detroit Free Press hit the streets to find out what Tigers fans thought of this trade, they were met by mixed reactions. Some fans asked for change, others shot at them.Please, blog, may I have some more?
