GAGS and BERK..real close now

Postby chrispistol3 » Tue Apr 26, 2005 12:17 am

Eric Gagne (elbow) threw off a mound today for the first time since going on the disabled list April 1.
Gagne played catch, making 60 throws, before making 17 pitches from flat ground including curveballs and changeups. He then threw 11 fastballs from the bullpen mound. ''He felt great. He had no pain,'' trainer Stan Johnston said. Gagne will throw again on Wednesday. It's possible that he'll return within 2 weeks

Lance Berkman (knee) went 3-for-5 with two homers and played right field today in an extended spring training game.
Activate him!!! Well, it probably won't happen tomorrow. Berkman will have his time in the outfield increase the next two days and he'll then DH on Thursday. If he continues to swing well and his knee feels fine, he could come off the disabled list on Friday.

These 2 Big Guns going help me capture my 5th championship in 6 years. I was getting so impatient that I nearly traded both of these guys this morning. Now I just need to get Bonds healthy again.

Looks like Brazoban's only got a couple more weeks to give me those cheap free agent pool saves. :-D
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

Hope not that many more weeks, seeing as I've got Gagne. Maybe a couple more days ;)

Berkman is huge for me. I'll have him take over my UT spot thats currently occupied by Sweeney. Get back Berkman!

C'mon back, Berkman! I need to toss Hidalgo or Kearns in the crapper as soon as possible. Trouble is, I don't know who's stinkier out of those two?

ive said a few other times and still just have a gut feeling that the gagne thing is more than they are telling us and is going to linger . Single digit saves(max) by the allstar break. Just a hunch

Easy, there.
A lot of times in these 'extended spring training' outings they let the guy bat every inning, which might explain the 3-for-5 in what was supposed to be three innings in the field. And against what pitching?
Anyway, the way I read it, he was going to continue with XST this week, rejoin the big club Friday, then go out on a GENUINE rehab stint (AA or AAA) after that. We're still probably 2 weeks from coming off the DL ... barring a setback.

besides, Gagne is just a troublemaker and an injury waiting to happen. Brazoban is the Dodgers closer of the future, and now that he's proven he can handle the spot, they should deal Gagne while his value is high (as in, before he comes back and blows a lot of saves and then blows his arm apart).
