Deduno Recalled

+

Probably the best move here. Can take the Corpas long man role in the bullpen and Corpas going away is addition by subtraction at this point. But the schedule has Rogers on the 1st in SF and Cook on the 2nd vs the Phils. This could be 2 losses as far as I am concerned. Rogers was tipping his pitches yesterday (according to earlier articles) and Cook has been roughed up several times by Philly (as well as everyone else this year). They can not have these 2 guys working in back to back games. Time to shorten the rotation not go to 6 guys for a turn.

July 19th vs Florida -The Rox rally late.  In the 9th the Rox decide to work around Uggla.  Olivo sets up every pitch outside the strike zone and Uggla walks.  Next batter Murphy hits one out and...

Starting to feel this thing slipping away

After losing 3 of 5 to bad ball clubs, I am just starting to get a bad feeling regarding this season.  Nearly 60 games in now and the club finds ways to lose games they should not. Tonights game...

Closest to Ubaldo I've seen - Gooden in 85

1

I've been watching baseball for about 35 years now. What Ubaldo is doing now is simply unbelievable - you feel like he is going to win in dominant fashion every time he goes to the mound. Growing up in NY as a Mets fan, I have seen this level of dominance on the mound once before. In 1985 Dwight Gooden went 24-4 with a era of a buck and a half. The question now is can Ubaldo keep up this pitching or will he come back down to earth. Given the fact that he will probably get several more starts against weak hitting San Diego and San Fran, there should be some more dominant type performances. The words of caution I have are twofold: 1. The Mets did not make the postseason in 85 despite Gooden's remarkable season and 2. Gooden never came close to repeating his 85 performance (though Ubaldo has a much better head on his shoulders than Doc ever did). The link will show Gooden's 85 game log. It is just fun to look back at this and wonder what Ubaldos will look like at the end of the season. If Ubaldo has a September like Gooden did than he will wind up with a performance that will never be forgotten.

Skip 5th Starter???

  Noticed that the Giants are skipping Wellemeyer with their off day.  Wondering why the Rox don't skip Rogers this time through after their off day.  I do not understand why you wouldn't want to...

Olneys Picks

1

You may need to be an ESPN insider to read this. Needless to say there are few things in life that would be as terriffic as the Rox beating the Spankees to win the World Series. Olney happens to know his stuff (he's one of the few) so talk about high expectations.

Feliz Option Declined by Phils

Atkins was Utleys best man at his wedding or so I have heard. Best buds from college. I would be stunned if Atkins does not wind up with the Phils after he is non tendered.

Most Winnable Game this upcoming series

  Thanks to the DBax, it looks like we will head into this series with a 3 game lead in the wild card.  IMO we only need to take 1 game this weekend to maintain a little bit of space. ...

Padilla - a sign of desperate Dodgers

They are adding a guy who was vehemently disliked in the Rangers clubhouse. I am certain he is going to be a great influence on Kershaw and Billingsley. Can't wait to see how this is going to turn out.

How about a stable lineup

When we went on our big run, the lineup was virtually unchanged day after day - it was Dex, Barmes, Helton, Hawpe,Tulo, Stewart, Ianetta, Cargo, and the pitcher.  In the last few weeks Tracy has...

Herges in Rincon out - please

Herges effective in the springs so far - time to bring him up and have Rincon join Peralta in AAA where he can be another hard thrower who can't hit the plate. Very frustrating loss tonight. ...
