Okay, now picture you’re a Mets fan who was in a coma for three months and you just looked at the starting lineup. You’d be like, “Jeremy who? Cora what? Tatis huh? Why are the Mets playing a split squad game in June?” Um, yeah.Please, blog, may I have some more?
CC Sabathia left his start with biceps tightness. Or is it bicep? Hmm… Either way, it’s not great to hear about an arm issue with your fantasy ace. Right now they’re saying no tests are even necessary. Give me two hundred CCs of a White Russian and I’m asking this, you pay one hundred trillion dollars for a player and then you don’t send him for tests when he hurts his bicep(s)?Please, blog, may I have some more?
The only thing more strained than Raul Ibanez’s patience for skeptics is his left groin as the Phillies placed him on the 15 day DL. You don’t own Ibanez for his wheels so this isn’t as troubling as Jose Reyes with a bad hammy or Willy Taveras with an allergy to getting on base.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Surprise, surprise, Canada’s number one export after Stubby Clapp is hurt, eh? Erik Bedard takes his inflammed shoulder to the DL. The Mariners say he’ll be fine to return on June 23rd. If you were to read between the lines, here’s what you would see, “Please, someone trade us something for this pitcher that cost us Adam Jones, Sherrill and Chris Tillman.Please, blog, may I have some more?
In a tie game, Cito Gaston brought in his closer, Scott Downs, to work the bottom of the ninth. Downs did that, then the Blue Jays scored five runs in the top of the 10th. So with the game in the bag, Gaston removed Downs for a pinch hitter, right?Please, blog, may I have some more?
A two-week vacation did ol’ Grady’s elbow just dandy. The inflammation Grady Sizemore has been feeling all year has subsided and there’s no need for now to resort to arthroscopic surgery. That has to be a relief to fantasy baseballers who drafted G-Sizzle with their 1st pick.Please, blog, may I have some more?
So how was your weekend? Mine included news that Jake Peavy could be out for as long as 12 weeks with a tear in his ankle. Could’ve been worse, he could’ve hurt his ankle kicking me in the groin. He was fitted for a cast the other day.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Kelvim Escobar was sent to the bullpen. His value goes from potentially good to potentially nothing. Scioscia said Escobar will be pitching out of the bullpen for the rest of the season. Scioscia also said Brandon Wood would start at shortstop two years ago and said Arredondo, the guy now in the minors, would be the closer and he said Rex Hudler’s got the best herb, when he wants to get wiggy with Figgy.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Brandon Morrow has changed his mind once again, deciding that his decision in the offseason to be a starter after relieving last year was a better idea than his decision in April to return to closing. It’s already June and it’ll take him at least a month or so to stretch out his arm.Please, blog, may I have some more?
James Lipton recently sat down with Stephen Strasburg and when he asked him what he thought of becoming a Nat, Stephen Strasburg said a’la Brando in On the Waterfront, “Actaaaaaa!!!” Stephen Strasburg is THE BEST PITCHER EVER. (Caps were provided by Scott Boras.) The hype and superlatives of Strasburg have been spewed across the interwebs, so allow me to give you some perspective.Please, blog, may I have some more?
