His wrist is jacked up again. I wished they'd just put him on the DL until it's freaking right.


Exactly what I didn't want to hear. :~(

Where are all the cries to ban sliding into home plate? Obviously it's too dangerous.

Good thing Roy Halladay is not pitching today or tomorrow. The heat might prevent him from going more than 2 innings.
"I do not think baseball of today is any better than it was 30 years ago... I still think Radbourne is the greatest of the pitchers." John Sullivan 1914-Old athletes never change.

We've finally found his one flaw after all these years...a propensity for heat exhaustion.

Tigers manager Jim Leyland is one of the most stubborn? managers for putting in replacement players into the same spot in the batting order of the regular he is replacing regardless of talent/ability. same thing with new Tigers 3B Wilson Betemit. he takes over for Inge, and gets Inge's most recent spot in the batting order, 9th.
I was hoping Betemit would be higher.

Will McCann's 1 SB this week hold off the likes of Ellsbury, Weeks, Kinsler, Asdrubal and Crisp?

he hurt himself before he even made contact with the catcher. his foot just got caught underneath him.

My buddy who lives in Tampa said the huge buzz on sports radio all day was the worry about James Shields 'throwing games' so he wouldn't get traded. :-b Apparently he didn't get the memo as he put down the Spankees for the 2nd time in as many weeks.*

* Yes I know he took the L last time, but he threw 8 innings and gave up 0 ER

Unrelated, anybody have the juevos rancheros to start Cory Lube-key tomorrow @PHI?? Chances at a W are severely limited, but we could see a 2 - 0 final score. I think I may run him out there.
