Dodgers Fall In Extra-Inning Battle

A recap of the Dodgers 4-2 loss to the Giants. It was an exciting extra-inning affair.

Jamaal Charles Workload

4

Hey guys, great blog you have here. I'm in the middle of a slow draft for my fantasy league right now. My next pick is coming up and I'm considering selecting Jamaal Charles. The next best avialable players IMO are guys like Chester Taylor, Leon Washington, Chris Chambers, and Miles Austin. So I have two questions for you. One, what kind of workload do you think he will get on offense? Is he strictly a third down guy or will he slowly usurp time from LJ and perhaps eventually take his job? And two, would you pick Charles over all of those guys? The league is standard scoring other than .5 PPR. Thanks in advance for all the help.

Will Miles Austin Be A Starter At WR?

Hey guys. I'm in the middle of a slow draft for my fantasy league right now. My next pick is coming up and I'm considering selecting Miles Austin. The next best avialable players IMO are guys like Chester Taylor, Leon Washington, Chirs Chambers, and Jamaal Charles. So I have two questions for you. One, do you think Austin will be a starter on offense for the mjaority of the year over Crayton and Hurd? And two, would you pick Austin over all of those guys? The league is standard scoring other than .5 PPR. Thanks in advance for all the help.

Derrick Burgess Dealt to the Pats

1

Burgess was traded for "draft considerations". He will be used as a 3-4 OLB in th Pats scheme as a situational pash rusher, so maybe he can play the position? Aaron Schatz of Football Outsiders points out that Burgess had 18 hurries last year as a part-time player, so maybe he still has quite a bit of gas left in the tank.

Jon Heyman tweets that Jake Peavy has been traded to the White Sox again for minor leaguers. The trade is still awaiting Peavy's approval.

Update 4:47 ET: Ken Rosenthal and Jon Paul Morosi of FOXSports.com report that Peavy has approved the trade and will join the White Sox. Peavy's agent Barry Axelrod said: "I think Jake just got to the breaking point. One team wanted him bad enough, and the other team wanted to get rid of him."

Minor Trades

11

The Red Sox have traded Adam Laroche to the Braves for Casey Kotchman. The Reds have traded Jerry Hairston Jr. to the Yankees. And the Nationals traded former Dodger Joe Beimel to the Rockies. Am I the only one who doesn't want to see Beimel on a division rival? The Reds have traded for Blue Jays third basmen Scott Rolen pending his approval. The Reds reportedly sent Edwin Encarnacion and Yonder Alonso to the Jays. Seems like a good haul. Nick Johnson has been traded to the Marlins for Double-A pitcher Aaron Thompson.

Dodgers Making Push for Gonzalez, Bell?

5

From Ken Rosenthal so take it with a grain of salt, but the Dodgers are apparantly "making runs" at both Adrian Gonzalez and Heath Bell. I don't even want to think about what kind of package it would take to acquire both of them, but our team would be.... amazing if we did.

Red Sox Close to Acquiring Victor Martinez

Why Shaun Hill Isn't a Good QB

8

Hey guys, I don't know if this is appropriate but feel free to delete it if it isn't. I debated with some of you over the merits of ranking the Seahawks ILB's over the Niners ILB's a week or so ago. Sorry if I was rude or nsulted anyone during the debate. Anyway it got a bit heated and I just wanted to show you guys that if I'm not an intellegent football watcher at the very least I am (at least somewhat) realistic about my hometown team. I thought maybe you guys would find this post I wrote about Shaun Hill interesting, or at least you'll know that I wouldn't have given the Niners QB situtation a B.

Giants Trade Tim Alderson For Freddy Sanchez

1

Or in other words, the Pirates committed highway robbery. So much for Kevin Frandsen and John Bowker, the Giants traded away their second best pitching prospect. I think Giants fans would like to perform True Blue's all-time best headline on Brian Sabean right now. Alderson got a B+ from John Sickels of Minor League Ball, better than any Dodger prospect except James McDonald. Alderson doesn't have great stuff but he has impeccable command. Splitting the year between High-A and Double-A the 20 year-old Alderson has a 66/17 K/BB ratio in 98.2 innings. I think this comment at Fangraphs sums up the situation nicely, "The best pitching prospect of the day doesn't get traded for Cliff Lee, but for Freddy Sanchez. Awesome. Nice job, Cleveland."
