First of all, there's no need for attacking me personally. You want to comment on my content? Fine. But you don't know me, and you don't know my life, so those kind of remarks just make you look like a baby. :-t

In the future, you'd be doing us all a big favor by keeping quiet unless you have something remotely useful to say about fantasy baseball. There are enough moderators on this board that we don't need your incredible watchdog skills.


You seem to be taking this awfully personally. I didn't call out your comment on the Nats.

Dude that's wonderful I'd love to hear all about it someday - but you posted in the wrong thread. The proper thread for complaining about other posts is here: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=380051

The San Francisco Chronicle reports that Joey Devine had surgery on the ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow Tuesday and is expected to miss the remainder of the season.
Specific details of the surgery have yet to be provided, but it appears to be safe to cut Devine loose in AL-only leagues. With Devine definitively out of the picture for 2009, Brad Ziegler has a solid chance to remain Oakland's closer all season.

Beimel was placed on the 15-day DL Tuesday with a hip flexor strain, the Nationals web site reports.

Spin:
He hurt himself Monday night. Saul Rivera was called back up from Triple-A to take his place in the bullpen.


So does this put Mock as the primary backup if Hanrahan falters?

Thanks, I can take him off my watch list now. I wish Yahoo had a larger watch list.

Mock definitely seems to be Hanrahan's back up now. Someone made a good point back there that went unanswered about would Mock have stayed out there for the 9th. I guess this will have to be something monitored, even though the way Mock threw in the minors it is hard to get too excited about him.

Seems BJ Ryan has been alright lately, anyone know how hard he is throwing now? Back up to 89 mph range?

Yes it does.
For Mock to pass Hanrahan, I think he'll have to pitch for a few weeks to get his manager's confidence up. I don't think 5 or 6 innings will be enough to warrant a change.

Hanrahan did not look good tonight even though he got the save. He had 2 runners in scoring position with no outs. He should have blown the save.
