John Maine mulling retirement


Recommended Posts

Frustrated at his repeated lack of performance, veteran pitcher John Maine left Triple-A Colorado Springs after a poor start Monday. He will decide whether to retire or continue trying to come back from shoulder surgery last year.

Maine gave up 10 hits and eight runs in 4 1/3 innings Monday against Tucson and threw a staggering 95 pitches, just 52 strikes, in his 11th start for the Sky Sox, a 9-6 loss. Maine is 1-3 with a 7.43 ERA and has 37 walks and 35 strikeouts in 46 innings.

After Monday’s game, Maine, 30, spoke with Sky Sox pitching coach Doug Linton. Maine would like to continue playing, but with the lack of results, felt he needed to get away from the game. For how long, remains to be seen.

    • Gausman pitches for Toronto today, so I give them the edge, putting them against TB again in the WC.    I'd rather face them than the 2nd best team in the league, TB.  Plus, there is a lot of payback coming, 2016, Cito in '93.... Most likely, it'll be TB instead  
    • I'll take 2024 Holliday bat/glove over 2023 Frazier at second.  Or Mateo for that matter. If we can hold serve, or improve, while not impeding Holliday it's smart to do so.
    • You are right … no reseeding.. my bad .  Given that, I prefer Toronto win today and then beat TB in wild card 
    • Seems like they should be ready. They might be the best argument against bringing Hicks back.
    • Today BAL is 24th of the 30 Clubs in Wins since play began in 2019.     It'll be interesting to see how far these Adley teams can climb the AL ladder the next four or more years. https://www.fangraphs.com/leaders/major-league?pos=all&stats=pit&lg=all&qual=y&type=8&month=0&ind=0&team=0%2Cts&startdate=&enddate=&season1=2019&season=2023&sortcol=2&sortdir=default&pagenum=1 2019-present, we are already ahead of DET-KCR. Teams to leap frog next year: -trail TEX by 3 games, trail LAA by 5 games, trail OAK by 14 games, trail CHW by 27 games Teams to leap frog by end of 2025 -trail BOS by 40 games Those projected achievements would get Elias' Club to 8th of the 15 AL Clubs for 2019-2025.     How deep he took the dive helped how high it can fly.    Elias and Adley in time, if we are lucky, becomes a Belichick and Brady kind of thing.     If the Start Time is instead Adley's MLB debut, as managed by Elias, its already ATL-LAD-HOU-BAL.
    • Do you really want to pay Cedric Mullins FA rates for his age 31+ seasons? I don't, and that's not a knock on him or what he's done. Just the simple reality that it's hard to play good CF defense in your thirties and Cedric probably lacks the bat to be especially valuable in left field. Hopefully Bradfield Jr. or Fabian is knocking on the door in two years.
    • All of them would be tough outs, but you expect that since it’s the playoffs. FWIW we are 3-3 against Texas. 3-3 against Houston. 8-5 against Tampa. 10-3 against Toronto. I really don’t want to play any of them from a “who do I think we ll beat” because I think we can beat them all. Toronto beating us would bother me the most.
