    R.A. Dickey's arm just twitched and he doesn't know why.

    You can have him. It didn't take all that long before I understood all too well Timby's outright gleeful response when the Cubs let him go. I don't doubt his has enjoyed some good player support while in Cincinnati... but things have just plain been screwy with many of his personnel decisions the past couple of years - particularly the pitching. Starting Cueto this year in the wildcard game against Pittsburgh is a good example. In all seriousness though... I think his health necessitates his retirement, and I was quite surprised when he came back after his late season problems last year.

    But bottom line is I am glad Cincinnati has decided to change things up. This team has woefully underachieved the past 3 seasons. And that is reason enough for my money to make a change.

    I'd take a moldy shoebox over John Gibbons.

    I really don't have a dog in the playoffs this year except to say I hope the Red Sox and Cardinals crash... hard. :)

    Yeah, until the standing room only train full of drunks breaks down halfway back to Dedham. Then it gets real fun.

    Dusty is all about underachievement.

    I'm okay with that. In fact I think ALL pitchers should have TJ surgery.

    You know, for the number that end up getting it you could almost make the case that that surgery could be a preventive measure.

    There are people who do get it for that reason. That being said, surgery is surgery and I don't wish it lightly on anyone.

    And blaming someone else, his story about getting the can because he was defending his hitting coach is just more fiction.

    Man, that was quite the pitching duel in Oakland tonight. Sonny Gray went toe to toe with Verlander. And refused to be intimidated by Torii Hunter. :lol:

    Pirates are pouring it on early. Good for them. The city and the team and the ballpark deserve a little love.

    However. Note to their radio guys: Don't sing. Ever. Again.
