Rumors and News

    • Alan Mills the next Houdini.Every year they say this guy fixed him or that guy.Buck said he was a much different pitcher in Spring Training. Same as it ever was.Look where my arm angle was.As the day goes by.
    • I think the standard answer is:   "I have nothing to tell you. I'm just giving the fireworks guy a chance to reload for the next home run."
    • Just thinking of all the possibities when it comes to Ubaldo. The guy is a team player and an all around good guy. BUT...he was signed when his velocity had been dropping.  This happens to most veteran power pitchers. With his weird windup, slinging the ball worked well when the velocity was 98 or so. But when it slows down, the pitcher has to learn how to pitch, not just sling it in there. Many veteran pitchers aren't able to make this adjustment and thus their MLB careers end. Unless Ubaldo learns how to pitch and not just throw, he won't be worth a whole lot to any MLB team. So, here are the possibities:  1. Try and engineer a trade. The problems with this is that everyone knows that he is in his walk year.  Any team that might be interested can wait and sign him.next year to a minor league contract and hope that they.can teach him how to pitch if it can be done. I doubt that anyone would be interested right now. 2. Release him and eat up his contract and free up his roster spot. Hopefully he won't become the next Jake Arrietta for another team. 3. Keep him around and put him back into the pen. Maybe Alan Mills can teach him how to pitch, at least in order to be serviceable in long relief or mop up. 4.Keep running him out there in the rotation and have a long relief guy available. Who knows,  he might actually learn how to pitch and then he can be re- signed for 4 more years. 😃    
    • Well I do think this team will have a good season. Hope so anyway.   
    • Well they replaced the turf thinking that might help and it didn't.  Doing something helps I guess.
