    My biggest problem with Anderson in particular is his cookie-cutter approach. "Teach the kid a sinker and make him keep it at the knees." It's basically the Bert Blyleven school of pitching. That...

    Between Worley and Nolasco, Anderson should be fired. One season is not enough, but this is a well-established pattern. Garza is probably the best example of how to screw up a promising pitcher.

    Ahem, it was not so terrible when they signed. If I recall, the general tone of the conversation here was : "Halleluiah! They finally opened up their pocket books!"

    I think Hammer should return something more than a bucket of balls. Not sure about Correia. The Yankees might be a fit, with the news that Sabathia is done and the poor performances of his...

    Forgot about that. He's as good as gone, as is Willingham. I'd like to trade the rest, except Suzuki, but I doubt there are any takers.

    I could see keeping Morales and offering him a qualifying offer. Doubt he'd turn it down this time.

    Here's hoping his tough love has the desired affect on Hicks. I agree about the talent. It's apparent. But maybe he just needs to get his energy level and focus up.

    The manager loves Florimon because he is a better version of himself, a no-hit infielder who "can really pick it." As long as Florimon is on the roster, he will play nearly everyday. The only...

    I don't think we're talking about a lot of money int he grand scheme of things, to give him a two-year $15M extension. I would try to get it done prior to free agency.

    Exactly. I want wins right now. Hopefully we can get closer in the next month and maybe add to rather than subtracting from the current roster. If not, sell. But it's too early to dump useful pieces...

    As usual, it depends on the return and where the team is in the standings in mid-July. I hope they are contending by then. They have the horses to get there. If they are 7-10 games out of the wild...

    Guys go from crappy to god and back in the bullpen all the time. I'm OK with waiting until Burton and Guerrier go back to crappy before dumping them. Same with Correia. As long as he pitches like...

    When he starts hitting again, I'm sure he'll get the call to Rochester. But there's no rush. Hopefully, he gets up there and establishes himself before the playoffs. I still believe in him.

    Only if he elects free agency. He's not that much of an upgrade over Fuld.

    Assuming all those things are true, it's bad. The only one we know is true is waffling on whether to be a switch hitter or not. Still. If they're true, why would you insist on publicly stating them...

    Was at a hotel that left a Current outside my door this past weekend. All the stories were about the Sox and Yanks. Only Rock Cats standings on the back page. Odd.

    The theory was, he would hit better and with more power with fresher hands and legs. Weakness rarely creates better results.

    I like to think he still struggles with concussion symptoms, which...

    I think we should trade all the veterans for Low A prospects. Not.

    I defended Pinto's defense earlier. But after his stint up here, it is pretty clear he is not ready defensively. Not only was he awful at pitch framing, he had tons of passed balls, errors and wild...

    Why do they continue to give Hermsen innings? Back at High A after two seasons in AA. I'm sure he's a nice kid and all but...

    He earned his way up. He will have to fail to go back down. If he keeps pitching like that, there's no reason to change. With his mix, intelligence, and control, I see no reason he can't continue to...

    I don't think removing Burton or Guerrier is about whether they are part of the future. Relievers come and go so fast, age is not really a huge issue. For the present, we can win more games with...

    I think they are waiting for the rainout, just to kick the can down the street a bit. But they might also be waiting for a DFA to work it's way through the system prior to announcing it.

    It only makes sense to remove outliers in large statistical samples. Relievers rarely if ever compile large enough statistical samples to make this work. Bert talks about relievers' ERA like you...
