Parnell has been pretty lousy the last few weeks. The mets have been pretty lousy the last few years. I'd much sooner drop Parnell than Beltra since u have other viable closers and I think the offensive patching will help u more but dropping Beltre could come back to haunt.

Rangers manager Ron Washington said Adrian Beltre could test out his hamstring by running the bases as early as Saturday.

Beltre took batting practice Friday for the second straight day and also fielded ground balls for 10 minutes on Thursday. He didn't sound terribly pleased about the progress of his hamstring, though. "It's a little better," Beltre said. "It's progressing, but slowly." Beltre aggravated his initial hamstring injury two weeks ago when he first tried to run again, so the Rangers are taking it slowly with him. Washington has said previously that he doesn't expect his third baseman back before September.

I think otherwise you have to drop someone like Norris who does not get a ton of run support or one of the guys mentioned above.

keep Beltre though for sure


Um..Santos is definitely not splitting time with Sale. Don't know where this guy got that idea.

But yeah it looks like your most glaring need is shortstop. Marlins aren't even sure if Hanley will return this year
