  1. Jiminez career 1-2 with a 5.63 ERA vs Detroit. Ubaldo Jimenez - Colorado Rockies - Split Statistics - MLB - Yahoo! Sports
  2. It seems that ubaldo hasn't been right since last year's all star break. Anybody have stats of him pitching against AL teams?
  3. Weren't the Mariners asking for Ramos for Cliff Lee a month ago and the Twins said no to that?
  4. I am trying to remember how the rest of the league and the Tigers internally reacted to when Shelton was so hot that one year. If they were saying the same things as they said about Boesch. Anybody remember?
  5. Right up there or better than the Polanco trade?
  6. From rotoworld. Joel Sherman says he's hearing the "Rangers are working really hard" on Cliff Lee now. A Lee trade would be a much bigger gamble for the Rangers than the Yankees, considering that they'd face far longer odds in re-signing him this winter and they'd be far from locks to reach the World Series even with an ace at the top of their rotation. If the Mariners had the chance to get Jesus Montero from the Yankees and didn't take it, they're likely to insist on Justin Smoak and more from Texas.
  7. Would anybody think that Lee would be the #1 over Verlander?
  8. Cliff Lee Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that the "Mariners are backing off" the Yankees' offer for Cliff Lee and that it doesn't look like the "Yankees are in it." Shocking if true, since it seemed like a done deal all afternoon. The Mariners were believed to be receiving Jesus Montero, David Adams and Zach McAllister for Lee. Sherman says the Mariners were concerned about Adams' ankle and that another team has stepped up with a big offer.
  9. Javier Vazquez seems to pitch better in the NL for whatever reason. ESPN is having a field day this week. Big LeBron crap and now it will be all Cliff Lee all the time and how nobody can beat the Yankees now
  10. I thought several NBA teams were all hurting for money from the economy. Apparently, that isn't the case with all these max contracts
  11. What was the brand and model of the camera you used?
  12. The Twins broadcast guy Blyleven commented a batter before this happened, that Zumaya has been pretty much exclusively fastballs the past few games and hasn't thrown hardly any off speed pitches at all, which that did seem odd that Zumaya would only do fastballs and nothing else right now. I hope it wasn't a case where he did feel something out of sorts the past few games and didn't tell the trainers about it thinking he can man up or something like that.
  13. Twins' one worry on the way back home: pitching | StarTribune.com
  14. Is it possible Boesch will be in the mix for that that extra All Star Voting that takes place after the All Star rosters have been set?
  15. What did MLB Tonight say though? I think MLB Tonight is better by far than Baseball Tonight.
  16. I'm still trying to get used to that we actually have a shut down closer. I can't remember the last one we had like that. Maybe Henneman?
  17. Damn good performance. All I hear this morning is how people say he has great mechanics and injury risk won't be as high as some. IIRC, they said that about Mark Prior too how he had pretty much flawless mechanics and yet look at what happened. But whoever the fan was that threw the HR ball back on the field will wish they didn't do that. That ball is historic now.
  18. I agree I am confused why he isn't picked yet. Check out this youtube video of him. Hits 101mph and he is a HS pitcher?
  19. And the Yankees keep cringing that they gave this guy up for Grandy....
  20. JV for Jon Lester. I was going to say Strasburg too, but he hasn't even pitched in MLB yet so who knows what you are going to get there yet. Nobody is worth trading Cabrera for, not even Pujols. Cabrera has pretty much the same skill set as Pujols and is younger and I think since he stopped drinking and whatever else was bothering him last year, he will easily put up Pujols numbers this year and for the next several years. His defense is also getting better and better at 1B for only playing at that position for a couple of years.
  21. I think he leads the league in K's so far, but somehow his timely hits, walks and plays in the outfield kind of overshadow the K's to the fact that when he does strikeout you aren't saying geez he struck out again...
  22. didn't see this posted but here are the details according the Ken Rosenthal on twitter Tigers paying $9.6M of remaining $10M on Robertson's deal. In other words, #Marlins get him for minimum. Twitter / Ken Rosenthal: #Tigers paying $9.6M of re ...
