I don't think Juan Pierre would've caught that.
   2. Joel W Posted: July 31, 2011 at 06:29 PM (#3889697)
There is no team in the AL Central with a positive run differential. I pity Tampa and Toronto. Especially Toronto since geographically they could play in the Central easily.
   3. Dan Posted: July 31, 2011 at 06:47 PM (#3889701)
So Andrew Miller suddenly looks like a decent pitcher again. 95 MPH on strike 3 to Beckham.
   4. Benji Gil Gamesh Rises Posted: July 31, 2011 at 06:48 PM (#3889702)
Looked like Els misread how hard that was hit.
   5. Dan Posted: July 31, 2011 at 06:59 PM (#3889713)
That would have been a sensational play if he did catch that though. It was a bullet deep into the gap.
   6. Dan Posted: July 31, 2011 at 07:04 PM (#3889715)
Jared Weaver just completely lost it in the Tigers game. What a douche.
   7. Joel W Posted: July 31, 2011 at 07:08 PM (#3889716)
Miller is pitching well, frustrating that the White Sox are getting these runs
   8. Benji Gil Gamesh Rises Posted: July 31, 2011 at 07:16 PM (#3889723)
Y'know, almost looked like Verlander threw that away on purpose...
   9. Biff, highly-regarded young guy Posted: July 31, 2011 at 07:33 PM (#3889734)
Miller is just completely unacceptable. I don't understand how they can keep trotting him out there. I'd take anyone else at this point.

Miller is pitching well, frustrating that the White Sox are getting these runs

Granted, I haven't been watching the whole game, but I don't think a team gets 9 hits in 4 innings by complete accident.
   11. Dan Posted: July 31, 2011 at 07:35 PM (#3889738)
That could've been a lot worse.
   12. Joel W Posted: July 31, 2011 at 07:43 PM (#3889743)
A lot of them have been fieldable singles to the wrong places. There were one or two hard hit balls, but really, he's looked quite good.
   13. Mattbert Posted: July 31, 2011 at 07:44 PM (#3889746)
Konerko out of the game. Dun duh daaaaaa!

(Or did he get injured?)
   14. Joel W Posted: July 31, 2011 at 07:48 PM (#3889751)
He got hit by an Andrew Miller fastball.
   15. Dan Posted: July 31, 2011 at 07:49 PM (#3889753)
#### you, Scutaro.
   16. Dan Posted: July 31, 2011 at 08:01 PM (#3889760)
Joel Sherman says no moves forYankees.
   17. Dan Posted: July 31, 2011 at 08:03 PM (#3889762)
Bedard has been traded.
   18. Dan Posted: July 31, 2011 at 08:04 PM (#3889763)
Fedorowicz lifted from Seadogs game.
   19. Joel W Posted: July 31, 2011 at 08:05 PM (#3889766)
Apparently we get Bedard?
   20. Joel W Posted: July 31, 2011 at 08:06 PM (#3889767)
Like I said, Miller is pitching well. Get him some runs guys.
   21. Dan Posted: July 31, 2011 at 08:18 PM (#3889779)
Now the word is that it's a 3 team trade, possibly involving the Dodgers.
   22. Benji Gil Gamesh Rises Posted: July 31, 2011 at 08:20 PM (#3889786)
Well, of course, it wouldn't be Theo if it was easy.
   23. Mattbert Posted: July 31, 2011 at 08:20 PM (#3889787)
Bedard strikes me as the type who will be a total disaster pitching in (a) Boston and (b) high pressure games.
   24. Dan Posted: July 31, 2011 at 08:23 PM (#3889793)
Wow. Didn't envision scoring off of Crain here.
   25. Dan Posted: July 31, 2011 at 08:24 PM (#3889794)
Three-team deal Bedard for BOS: Federowicz, 2 other minor leaguers to LAD, Trayvon Robinson, Chih Hsien Chiang to SEA for Bedard, Fields.
   26. Dan Posted: July 31, 2011 at 08:25 PM (#3889796)
Fields is Josh Fields, a minor league Mariners pitcher. Not the failed CHW 3B/1B/OF.
   27. Joel W Posted: July 31, 2011 at 08:26 PM (#3889798)
@23 why?
   28. Dan Posted: July 31, 2011 at 08:29 PM (#3889803)
Bedard is an introvert and a French Canadian. I don't think the profiling on him is fair at all.
   29. Mike Webber Posted: July 31, 2011 at 08:30 PM (#3889804)
Fields minor league numbers - 101 IP, 103 Ks, 72 BB.

He was a 1st round draft choice in 2008 though, so there might be something there.
   30. Famous Original Joe C Posted: July 31, 2011 at 08:32 PM (#3889809)
Bedard is an introvert and a French Canadian. I don't think the profiling on him is fair at all.

I agree. Besides, his health seems to be a much larger concern. As has been pointed out elsewhere, he's always pitched well whenever he's been able.
   31. Fancy Pants Handles lap changes with class Posted: July 31, 2011 at 08:34 PM (#3889811)
That's a lot of walks though...
   32. plink Posted: July 31, 2011 at 08:41 PM (#3889819)
Any idea who the other two minor leaguers are going to LA?
   33. Dan Posted: July 31, 2011 at 08:44 PM (#3889820)
Fife and Juan Rodriguez
   34. Mike Webber Posted: July 31, 2011 at 08:44 PM (#3889821)
Red Sox Acquire Erik Bedard In Three-Team Deal
By Tim Dierkes [July 31 at 3:14pm CST]

3:14pm: This appears to be what's gone down, from Gordon Edes:

Red Sox get: starter Erik Bedard, reliever Josh Fields (both from Mariners)
Dodgers get: catcher Tim Federowicz, reliever Juan Rodriguez, starter Stephen Fife (all from Red Sox)
Mariners get: outfielder Trayvon Robinson (from Dodgers), outfielder Chih-Hsien Chiang (from Red Sox)
   35. Mattbert Posted: July 31, 2011 at 08:45 PM (#3889823)
@23 why?

Well-established dislike of the media, reputation (fair or unfair) for being uncomfortable in the spotlight, etc. The profiling on him may not be fair, but maybe it exists for a reason.

I agree that his health is the more important concern. But if he does get a tweak, either he's going to get the Drew/Clement "Mr. Glass" stuff from the media and fans or he'll unadvisably try to pitch through it to preempt his rep.
   36. plink Posted: July 31, 2011 at 08:49 PM (#3889825)
As much as I like Chiang, that seems like an entirely reasonable deal.
   37. plink Posted: July 31, 2011 at 08:50 PM (#3889826)
Why, exactly, are the Dodgers doing this? Is Federowicz really expected to be that good -- better than Trayvon?
   38. Mike Webber Posted: July 31, 2011 at 08:53 PM (#3889827)
Of all the minor leaguers to me it seems that Trayvon Robinson has the brightest future. I don't really see the Dodgers angle in what they got. Well, other than bulk.
Maybe they got some cash too?
   39. karlmagnus Posted: July 31, 2011 at 08:53 PM (#3889829)
Aren't the Dodgers in desperate need of catching, having foolishly let Russel Martin go?
   40. Dan Posted: July 31, 2011 at 08:55 PM (#3889831)
I'm guessing that the Dodgers had somehow soured on Robinson.
   41. Mike Webber Posted: July 31, 2011 at 09:00 PM (#3889834)
The Dodger catching is a mess, but I don't see how a Double A catcher helps them before 2013.
   42. Phil Coorey is a T-Shirt Salesman Posted: July 31, 2011 at 09:03 PM (#3889835)
Morning all
   43. Mike Webber Posted: July 31, 2011 at 09:05 PM (#3889836)
Hi Phil.
   44. Famous Original Joe C Posted: July 31, 2011 at 09:14 PM (#3889840)
Hi Phil. Interesting morning.
   45. Phil Coorey is a T-Shirt Salesman Posted: July 31, 2011 at 09:18 PM (#3889845)
Hi Mike - been catching up on all the trades - I love July 31
   46. Phil Coorey is a T-Shirt Salesman Posted: July 31, 2011 at 09:20 PM (#3889846)
Hi Joe, sorry missed your post as my page is not being refreshed much.

Very interesting morning - girls are sleeping in as well - they know I'm busy!
   47. Fancy Pants Handles lap changes with class Posted: July 31, 2011 at 09:24 PM (#3889847)
In sewer ants run!
   48. Phil Coorey is a T-Shirt Salesman Posted: July 31, 2011 at 09:25 PM (#3889848)
mlb.tv just froze at a 1-0 count with AG batting =- now gameday is frozen - any updates?
   49. Mike Webber Posted: July 31, 2011 at 09:25 PM (#3889849)
I think Pedroia would have scored if we had needed that run, no use injuring him though for a 3 run lead.
   50. Biff, highly-regarded young guy Posted: July 31, 2011 at 09:27 PM (#3889851)
That wasn't a swing. Come on now.
   51. Phil Coorey is a T-Shirt Salesman Posted: July 31, 2011 at 09:27 PM (#3889852)
freaking mlb.tv
   52. Fancy Pants Handles lap changes with class Posted: July 31, 2011 at 09:28 PM (#3889854)
AG double Phil IBB to Youk to load the bases, Ortiz struck out
   53. Mike Webber Posted: July 31, 2011 at 09:28 PM (#3889855)
Gonzalez doubled to RF corner, Ellsbury scored, Pedroia held at 3b. Youk then walked IBB, Ortiz K's - iffy 3rd strike call by 3b umpire. Papi failed to agree.
   54. Fancy Pants Handles lap changes with class Posted: July 31, 2011 at 09:29 PM (#3889856)
CC out on a popup to short
   55. Phil Coorey is a T-Shirt Salesman Posted: July 31, 2011 at 09:29 PM (#3889857)
I've never seen a guy swing at so many pitches off the plate - Crawford should take up cricket
   56. Phil Coorey is a T-Shirt Salesman Posted: July 31, 2011 at 09:32 PM (#3889858)
Thanks guys
   57. Benji Gil Gamesh Rises Posted: July 31, 2011 at 09:34 PM (#3889860)
Paps Ks Quentin for 1st out.
   58. Benji Gil Gamesh Rises Posted: July 31, 2011 at 09:35 PM (#3889861)
...and Dunn for the 2nd.

"C'Mon Alex, keep us going buddy"

Freakiing Hawk is such a lemon

Cheers Phil!

I like this team

Lemons everywhere feel deeply insulted.
