it's officially that time of the year... baseball and nothing else


At least this sport isn't fixed because it already happened all the way,way,way back in 1919.

haha you're getting annoying with this man..just let it go

It's true tho

Your Magic will NEVER get a chance unless the game is entirely cleaned up.

Or if they quit trading away their superstars

Or pissing them off (see Shaq and D.Howard)

So

The Phillies declared Jonathan Papelbon is off the trade deadline market.

Names leaking out for closers are Steve Chisek, Ryan Webb, Glen Perkins and K-Rod.

Ryan Webb? Guy isnt even a closer and not overpowering at all. I can see the others though.

All I know is that the Tigers are looking at those two Marlin relievers.

Yes. I look at MLBRumors too. Webb would certainly not be to close games.
There were posts referring to the Cubs offering players available for the deadline. Here are some players that have popped up via MLBTR.

"As we approach the deadline, Chicago's
other team is getting ready to sell . Nate
Schierholtz , Kevin Gregg , Scott Feldman ,
David DeJesus, Alfonso Soriano , James
Russell , and Matt Garza are among the
names that could draw interest."

Great site! Way better than paying for an insider subscription on ESPN.

I hope the Tiger scout enjoyed the Marlins/Giants series.

The Tigers have kept an eye on Brian Wilson. I have a feeling if hes healthy by the break he will sign there. Id love to have him back in SF, but I think he takes the closer job over the setup job.

Very interesting.

Haven't heard that. Wonder if the AL would serve him best in his attempts to make a comeback?

With Wilson, it doesn't matter which league he throws in. It only matters if his arm returns to 100%. When healthy, his stuff is hard and electric. He flirts with wildness which helps him. Kind of like Timmy when he threw hard. He was not close to being 100% so he got no interest. I havent read anything stating he was getting close to being healthy, unless you guys have?

I just remember back in May sometime he said he was targeting the All-Star break to be 100%, and he wasnt even going to talk with anyone until then.

The Giants and Tigers were the only 2 teams who watched him throw this offseason I think.
Anyone catch that interesting interaction between Phillies mgr Charlie Manuel and that Philly sports radio personality?

The Blue Jays: the end of the winning streak will prove if they can still keep it up, or, falter to the back of the pack.

Jose Reyes comes back.
