The useful thing about Cecil is that he does have sp-eligibility in Yahoo.

If he wasn't ready he wouldn't have been activated from the DL. He had one bad outing after he had been so-so this year after been lights out for the past few seasons. It's not really that unbelievable that Francona is going to Pestano to close.

I get where Francona is coming from. Vinnie has been in the back-up spot for a long time. Its his turn. Its the right message to send to his team...that "I believe in you and will give you a chance to succeed in the role you have been training for....until/unless you prove you can't deliver." And, as I wrote earlier, it keeps his bridge guys in place. If Vinnie is unable to do the job, then Francona will make an adjustment.

Well, I have K-Rod but just more confirmation instead of speculation I guess.

Crazy night.....Mariano blows the save and loses to Mets 2-1. Mets had him toss the ceremonial first pitch tonight....and then he threw the last one as well!

Perkins blows a save vs. Brewers....headed into extra innings...

Yeah he was unlucky. Struck out Bentancourt and then hit the pinch hitter and that ended up being his undoing as is often the case. Aoki managed soft contact on a decent pitch that fell in for a hit and then Segura lined one at Hicks who trapped it. Another few inches and the game was over as the runner at second went on contact. Perkins is close to a top 10 closer. A ton of job security and elite K's.

Yes, Perk's a stud.
Mariano Fact: Tonight was the first time, in his entire career, that he blew a save without getting ONE out. Incredible.
