In response to GoUconn13's comment: maybe it is the good time to try Kelly as a closer and see if he is capable to be a closer I don't think it matters where he pitches. If he can't locate his fastbal more »
Forum Post: Why did JBJ hit against Andrew Miller?
Posted 08/07/2015 02:49:43 EDT
Maybe because it's a lost season, he's a struggling player clinging on for his MLB life, and finally got a hit in his previous at bat. If he could have come up with a big hit in that situation it coul more »

In response to jam789123's comment: Greinke's psyche is so fragile that he makes Buchholz look like Bob Gibson. He will never come to Boston. I would reccommend reading the SI article on him, his pys more »
Forum Post: Hanley's offense hasn't been that great either
Posted 08/05/2015 02:51:40 EDT
Pretty much the numbers he was putting up in LA. Not too surprised. Thought maybe he'd hit more HRs given the weight he gained though.
Posted 08/05/2015 02:24:09 EDT
Greinke is one of my favorite players, but I don't think he goes to Boston. He will probably opt out then re-sign with the Dodgers. I think Jordan Zimmerman signs with the Sox. And none of you onli more »

Games are somewhat fun to watch when the younger guys are playing. Napoli 0-5, Ortiz 1-4, Ramirez 1-4 right in the heart of the lineup and still 11 runs. Would be nice to see Owens or Johnson pitch more »

Bullpen arms are so unpredictable, with the exception of the really elite relievers. Doesn't hurt to add a guy who was once good, and is still pretty young. Could benefit them down the road. Gave up n more »
Forum Post: A most quiet trade deadline
Posted 07/30/2015 04:34:18 EDT
What is he supposed to do? None of the players he wants to move hold a lot of value. Napoli will probably be dumped sometime before the deadline, but I doubt 2 months of a .200 hitter will result in m more »

Living in Nats territory, this team is good enough to win the WS. They aren't going to trade anyone away. It's almost too bad Storen is losing his job. He's been fantastic this year.

Shouldn't you always use your best option first in this situation? The idea from the pitching perspective is to keep the game tied until your offense can score. Uehara is their best arm in the bullpen more »

Forum Post: Should Swihart return to AAA?
Posted 06/27/2015 02:27:05 EDT
They should send him down to AAA and let him work at 1B for 2016. There's no point in grooming him to be a catcher when the longterm plan is Christian Vasquez.

They need him to be the sacrificial lamb for fan hatred. Every year there is one player, who for no logical reason, is an everyday player. Now that Steven Drew is gone it is De Aza's turn. Though to more »

Kelly loves the fastball right down the middle. If only he could figure out how to locate it.

1 hitter last week, no hitter this week... next start should be the perfect game. Lame little HBP that Tabata leaned into with 2 outs on the 9th.
Posted 06/20/2015 06:06:30 EDT
Oh, he has a higher batting average than Ortiz and Napoli too :p
Posted 06/20/2015 05:53:35 EDT
It's pretty incredible. His last game he went 9 shutout innings and struck out 16. The only thing that prevented a perfect game was a bloop single on a popup late in the game... Next game, right now, more »
