    Re: Bailey is the closer

    Meanwhile back at the ranch...Mark Melancon, who was traded to get Hanrahan is unscored upon in 7 set-up innings, 6K's, and a whip of 0.29.

    So, if Drew should not have lost "his job" to Iggy, should Hanrahan lose his to injury?

    I likes the way Melancon finished his year leat year. Maybe a lower profile team is what he needs to perform consistently.

    seems that way. SSS so far in 2013 but he was great before coming to boston, stunk while in boston and seems to be doing great again in pitt.

    Yes, two are SSs, and two are closers.

    Yes, Hanrahan has looked bad in a tiny sample size.

    Yes, Drew has looked bad in a tiny sample size.

    Yes, Bailey has looked very good.

    Yes, Iggy has looked very good.

    Other than that, there is no similarity.

     

    If Drew keeps doing poorly, will they invent a hammy injury for him too?

    And, Stomy Pimental is unscored upon in two starts for  Altoona (AA), with 11 K's in 12 innings, he was shipped in that same deal along with Jerry Sands, (acquired in AGon trade).

    Hanrahan came at a BIG price, hope he's worth it'

    I said it at the time, although the guys we traded were not top prospects, we still traded away Melancon & youth for 1 year of Hanrahan during a "rebuilding winter". 

    The jury is still out, and we may end up extending Hanrahan if he turns it around, so time will tell.

    Not really.  Melancon can't pitch in Boston any more than he could pitch in NY.

    People in the Yankees organization felt that Melancon didn't have the "make up" to handle a big market and judging by his performance, they seem to be right.

    Was Iggy ever a 2 time AS or ROY (like Bailey) or was he always an all glove, no bat SS? Was he ever a starting SS full time in MLB?

     

    For someone who does their homework, looks like you get an F this time. Hanrahan has a history of hamstring injuries going back to 2006 (in the minors) I believe. Especially in colder weather. Its not made up, look it up.

    Besides, the 2 situations are very different. Its very clear. Your very defensive about this SS thing Moon. Its not like you.

    I want the Sox to win. Yes, the analogy was a bit lame, but Iggy gives us the best chance to win, as does Bailey. That's the "similarity" that counts.

    I know you do Moon, but this Iggy/Drew thing you have has gone on long enough. I, and everyone know where you stand on this and respect your opinion. Its just not like you to carry on like this. leave that for softy.

     

    Hanny has had hamstring injuries for a while and the 2 situations are not the same.

    Re: Bailey is the closer

    Melancon ended 2012 with 1 ER in his last 10 IP (8 games).

    10 IP  4 Hits 1 BB 1 ER

    He has started this year with:

    7 IP  2 Hits  0 BB  0 ER

    His last 15 games in MLB:

    17 IP  6 Hits  1 BB  1 ER

    He is just 28 years old.

    His record in NY was based on 20 IP at ages 24-25.

    He came in, blew a couple of games, probably took abuse from Bobby V, got demoted, and earned his way back. It didn't look like he had lost his talent. Pittsburg was happy to get him, they compared him to Hanrahan, only cheaper and younger.

    Plus 4 years of team control compared to 1 year. Then, Sands and Pimental thrown in.

    I agree Moon. I was telling everyone that I though melancon ended the season great and that maybe he turned the corner. We'll never know if he could handle Boston. Personally, I think he would have been fine.
