But do they finish above .500? :lol:


They had a solid start last yr but faded... They have some real good talent and the cards and brewers both got worse this yr.

The reds are too streaky and the funnies and stros don't even belong in the majors... :wink:

There's only one Ozzie... you think he gives a crap?

Quote:
Marlins suspended manager Ozzie Guillen for five games for his recent comments regarding Fidel Castro.

The Marlins levied the suspension after Guillen recently told Time magazine he "loves" Castro and respects the Cuban dictator for staying in power so long. Guillen has already apologized for his comments, but will do so again at a press conference in Miami on Tuesday at 10:30 a.m. ET. MLB is reportedly looking into the situation, but it's not known if Guillen will face further punishment.

This whole situation is pretty ridiculous. The fact that the Marlins are suspending him a week or two after the comments were made public and who knows how long since he actually said them in the interview... trying to cover their rumps.

What?... is the Sun Sentinel gonna run a scathing piece on Guillen and everyone in South Florida will care for a day? Who really cares.

Agreed and what does 5 games really do at this stage of the stage, in the grand scheme?

What's everybody's take on this situation? Where does Bard have the best value, starting or closing?

Quote:
When asked if Daniel Bard is an option to take over as closer, Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine responded, "Might be."

It's tough to know if Valentine is being truthful, cagey, misleading, sarcastic, or some combination of them all. At the moment, however, Valentine certainly has to be seriously considering ending Bard's conversion to the rotation. Andrew Bailey is out until after the All-Star break with a thumb injury and Boston's bullpen has been awful thus far. Alfredo Aceves, Valentine's choice to begin the year as closer, has allowed four hits and three runs without recording an out over two appearances. Mark Melancon is 0-2 with a 36.00 ERA and 5.00 WHIP over two games. It's early, so it is probably no time to panic, but if both continue to struggle, Bobby V and Boston's management will have no choice but to mix it up.

Ive heard an opinion that part of it is being nice to Bard who will be going into arbitration after this season. A pitcher gets a lot more in arbitration if they are either a closer or a starter than they do if they are a "relief" guy. The management (and most of the fans) dont think Bard can be a closer, so they are letting him try to be a starter.
My take is that they will give him 3-4 starts. If any of those look good they will let him keep trying for a while. If after those 3-4 he isnt looking good, and the bullpen still needs help, you'll see him slide into the back end of the bullpen, and Aceves will either go into the lineup, or who knows what will happen. The bullpen has looked better their last few times out, but was absolutely horrible the first 2 times out.
I agree with Oar, they should have ponied up the money for Oswalt, but there was also a lot of talk around here that Oswalt didnt really want to come to Boston anyway.

Gordon Edes of ESPNBoston.com confirms that Jacoby Ellsbury has a dislocation or partial dislocation of his right shoulder and will miss a minimum of six weeks.

Terrible news for the Red Sox and fantasy owners alike. Ellsbury injured the shoulder when Reid Brignac landed directly on top of him at second base during Friday's game. He was immediately sent to Massachusetts General Hospital for an MRI, but he's scheduled to undergo even more tests to make sure the shoulder did not sustain additional damage. Darnell McDonald, Cody Ross and Ryan Sweeney will start in the Red Sox outfield, at least until Carl Crawford comes off the disabled list.

So Wilson's likely done for the year, no real indication on who the Giants will go with. Romo probably gets first shot, but Casilla and Lopez may be in the mix as well.

Oh, and the Blow Jays blew another Henderson Alvarez quality start. Their bullpen has been bad so far this year.

Alvarez is looking like a Brandon McCarthy clone so far.
Not a lot of K's, but almost no walks, and the ratios should be good while piling up quality starts.

I'd buy (if I didn't already have him in one league, and just sold him in another)

Aceves is starting to look ok in that closers role. After not getting an out in his first 2 outings, he has now gone 1-2-3 in 3 outings in a row. I think 2 of those were saves, and one was just to get some work in.

Youk dogging it?

Quote:
Kevin Youkilis responded Monday morning to statements Red Sox skipper Bobby Valentine made Sunday night questioning the third baseman's effort and commitment.

"I don't think he's as physically or emotionally into the game as he has been in the past for some reason," Valentine told WHDH Sunday during an interview. Which triggered this response Monday from Youkilis: "I go out every day and play as hard as I can -- take every ground ball in the morning, take every at-bat like it's my last. I don't think my game has changed at all. ... That's just not how I go about the game of baseball." Dustin Pedroia has come to his friend and teammate's defense, telling the media Monday, "I really don't know what Bobby is trying to do but that's not the way we go about our stuff around here." This is a situation that has great potential to turn even uglier. Youk is not in Monday's lineup.

Not sure what Bobby V is trying to do here... but I agree with Pedroia, that's not a productive way to handle a situation.

It will be interesting to see how the Sox respond to Bobby V's style.


No real feel on whether they can solve their own internal clubhouse issues as well deal with Bobby V.

while i can understand bobby v trying to light a fire under youk (BTW, I agree with his assessment of him to this point), there is no reason it needs to be laid out in the media.

this is not going to end well, at all.
