Re: MLB Friday, August 3, 2012

Sorry for no thread yesterday--long day at work getting ready for my vacation. And speaking of vacation, I'm off to the land of no wifi, so I can still create threads on my phone but can't make them all fancy-like.

I said in the other thread, the Yankee one would have been better if they said A-Rod.

Re: MLB Friday, August 3, 2012

So Pujols is hitting .286 and is on pace for 34HR's and 112 RBI.

I realized he has gotten hot but how in the world is he on pace to post those #'s after he was hitting .212 with 1 HR in mid-May?

...and traded for cash or a player named later. Do they need a fifth starter?

Well, they were in the Dempster rumor mill for weeks, almost by default as it seemed like that was the only place he wanted to go. When he went to Texas, I'm sure the Dodgers still wanted to pick up a starter somewhere.

But this could have also been done to block Blanton from going to the Giants or Braves or anybody else who needed a starter.

Re: MLB Friday, August 3, 2012

The A's traded Kurt Suzuki to the Nationals for a minor league catcher.

Ironic since the A's picked up their catcher of the future from the Nats when they traded Gio Gonzalez to them in the winter.

Re: MLB Friday, August 3, 2012

Cliff Lee claimed off waivers. No word on the team yet, but I doubt a deal will get done with any team due to that albatross of a contract. Reports out of Boston are that it's NOT the Red Sox who claimed him.

Justin Upton hit is 100th HR earlier. BJ Upton just hit his 100th HR. They also both hit their 99th HR on the same date.

Re: MLB Friday, August 3, 2012

That was a pretty bad blown call at the plate in Philly. I think Mayberry was clearly safe, but I'll gladly take all the help we can get.

Rockies apparently have a 4-man rotation, and they've been pulled after about 75 pitches?

and that blown call didn't matter anyway since Kubel hit a late HR. Dbacks 4-0 on the start to this road trip.
