u've got to feel sorry for Kaz, losing his role without doing anything wrong. But hey, if Shiggy continues dominating, I have nothing against it (look at my avatar)!

That's super. A guy in our league dropped him after Sasaki was rumored to be coming off DL. I scooped Shigetoshi Hasegawa up. ;-D

Works for me. :-D I picked up Shiggy a couple of weeks ago for some bonus saves. Guess I'll be keeping him around for awhile. :-D

i love it. the only problem for me was this was announced just after my lineups were set and this is the first week of the playoffs for me. oh well, between shiggy and looper who I probably would have replaced I can't go wrong.

I thought this was hilarious.. the fake pitch :P good read about mariners relievers.

"I knew he's a good hitter, so I tried to go with good location," Soriano said of Garciaparra.


Soriano went after him right away with a high mid-90s fastball. Garciaparra swung behind it. He repeated that a second time, and so did Garciaparra. Catcher Ben Davis then set up high for another fastball, but Soriano delivered it low and away for a called third strike.


"I wanted the third one up, but it was the perfect pitch. I'm just glad I got down there to catch it," Davis said. "Not many guys can get the heater past Nomar. He did it three times in a row. He's got a bright future."


Hasegawa, watching from the bullpen, told Soriano later that his third strike "was a fake pitch. That's a good idea. I might use that one."


Hasegawa disposed of his three batters — Manny Ramirez, David Ortiz and Kevin Millar — who have a combined 66 home runs — without any fake pitches. Ramirez, reaching out for an off-speed pitch, popped out to second to end a nine-pitch battle. Ortiz struck out and Millar flied out to center.
