I love watching Bryce Harper of the Nats. Interesting stat comparing him and Mickey Mantle at the same age. He's better than the Mick in some stats. I also like Mike Trout of the Angels. I predict he'll be the Tim Salmon of this decade.
That's a fishy prediction, but will the scales balance out?

Yeah, at this point Middlebrooks is clearly the better option. I'm going to miss Youkilis, but it was time for a change. And I really wasn't expecting a huge return for him, given his age, recent health issues, and declining stats. So a decent utility infielder and an inconsistent pitcher with high upside isn't too awful, IMO. I don't know if both Nick Punto and Brent Lillibridge will still be wearing a Red Sox uniform in August, though. They seem kind of redundant.
Like I said, there's no reason to trade Youkilis at his absolute lowest point of his career with more than a month before the deadline. And it's not like Youkilis was blocking Middlebrooks, because nothing in the world says they had to be playing the exact same position -- just stash Youkilis in left, or put Middlebrooks in right (unless you think it's imperative to get guys like Nava, Kalish, McDonald, and Ross playing time. I don't think it's very necessary, but apparently the Sox do).

It just makes no sense to trade Youkilis right now, when at the deadline, they could have put some pressure on teams who needed a guy with a great career at the plate and isn't into his twilight years. At the very least, they could have taken a flyer on some A ball or AA player who at least has a shot of turning into something, rather than two guys who on their best days are a utility guy and a 5th starter.

And the Boston smear machine is already in full gear, with "unnamed" officials saying Youkilis was a clubhouse cancer. Go figure.

The Red Sox traded Youkilis before Schilling could hit him up for a loan.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

The Rockies just reassigned their pitching coach, Bob Apodaca, to the position of special assistant to the General Manager. It's a good start, but G.M. Dan O'Dowd now needs to be reassigned to special assistant to the guy who sells cotton candy.

MLB Network was reporting he asked to be reassigned. I don't blame him. The "plan" they have set up is absolutely ridiculous.

Yeah, just heard that too. This 75 pitch count nonsense is a last grasp at reigning in their ineffective starters, and at the same time they're going to kill some decent relievers. It's too bad really because on paper, the line-up is pretty decent. This season is a write-off and they need to take a look at all of their pitching prospects in both Colorado Springs and Tulsa.

Oh crapola. Pettitte AND Sabathia go on the disabled list?

Smoothie, you are aware that Freddy has been dead for almost two years now?

Yup The sort of bright side is that Freddie Garcia was looking good out there today. With a little bit of luck they may be able to pull something together.

They got their clocks cleaned, to put it mildly. Samardzija gave up nine earned on his own.

Good job on the 17 runs. I was going to flip out if the lost all 3 to the hot steaming mess known as the Cubs.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

Nothing like a 3 game SHUTOUT sweep of the Dodgers, with Tim Lincecum showing signs of the old Tim Lincecum. I understand the Dodgers are depleted right now, but they were in first place, and they are still a major league team. To shut them out in all three games is no easy task. Looking forward to this 4 game series against the Reds, and to maybe Shut that clown Aroldis Chapmen up. Ok, so he's not really a Clown, but that whole somersult thing he did last night looked weird and a little busch league.
