I'm really pulling for Aardsma. Got to meet him last year at a Sox game and he was nice enough to come to the railing and pose for a picture with me. Class act, nice to see him pitching well.

I have Sherril but have absolutely no room on my roster to add Ray. If you had to pick one right now to run with for the season would it be Sherril or Ray?

I see Motte was moved to the front runner for the closers role in St. Louis on the front page, but no word is out yet definitively as per Larussa. What are the some more thoughts as to this situtation?

I have Lindstrom, and I am anxiously awaiting to drop Lindstrom and get Motte to.

please keep the personal roster questions in the correct subforum. but my advice in most cases is try not to drop a closer who has a job already for one that has not been named one yet.

Sorry I was asking personal roster moves.


I was just exclaiming Lindstrom's injury is worrying me to the point where I am valuing Motte right now. But you guys are right.
