    Aw Stephen Drew, the only player/thing Red Sox and Yankee fans can agree on.

    I can't wait to see Eduardo Rodriguez get inducted into the MLB HOF.

    Eduardo looked like Cliff Lee with that across the chest delivery, very promising pitcher. Not a RedSox fan though but that was the only thing to watch last night on TV...

    Nah they're both older than Eduardo so they would get inducted the year before.

    If I can take anything out of this year so far is that it seems like Pineda is back.....lets hope he remains healthy, and I will say if he goes through this year without an injury and then next year around the ASG I buyout this arbitration years....

    Good to see all you have to do is throw one in the dirt to get Cano out everytime still.....he has to regret signing out there....the money was the same on the years if you remember, he LOVED NY and they loved him....Seattle just seems like there is no juice to playing there everyday...

    I actually wouldn't, I would let it ride and just pay him year to year. He has way too much injury history to ignore.

    That's what they will do and he will reach the open market.....I would certainly sign him to a 8-9M dollar contract.....they will be able to absorb that no problem after next year when they lose Tex and CC, with A-Rod the following year....

    I guess it all depends on what the arbitration figures project for him and if the Yankees can buy a year or so of FA to make it make sense. Of course we should probably wait to see if he can make it a year without getting hurt first. Kind of amazing that he hasn't had a single healthy year since 2011 and has had major arm surgery but when he pitches he's been pretty damn good.

    Right I agree....I am hopeful he might be starting to get over it, he is 26 so he is starting to reach his peak physically.....of course that has no bearing on if his arm doesn't blow a gasket hahahaha

    Probably just send down/DFA Jeff Bianchi. Seems like the obvious choice. Although Daniel Nava's days could be numbered soon too.

    More shocked that he hung around the MLB for so long and was a pretty productive player for the Sox for a couple of years. To think he was a 27 year old indy guy that Theo signed and given his backstory is pretty remarkable.

    Eduardo Rodriguez might very well be the first player to ever be elected to the MLB HoF while he's still active and playing.

    Joc Pederson is going to be pretty good in this league. He may never hit for average, but the kid can hit them far once he connects. Wow.

    Never understood the double standard that exists in baseball. It's ok for a pitcher to fist pump or show emotion after a big out or for a pitcher to throw at a player after he grandstands but if the batter shows emotion after a hit.... :omg: the sky is falling. If the pitcher doesn't want the batter to grandstand then don't give him a pitch he can crank 450 feet or whatever.

    If all he did was fist bump, sure. The only time a pitcher goes crazy is after a big bases loaded strike out, or a victory. Hitting a homerun down 6 runs, walking halfway up the base path, flipping your bat like you're AROD, then trotting around third shushing the dugout, will get guys ticked off. That's just baseball. Guy could have easily fist pumped, clapped, pointed to the sky at home, and its fine. The other bull****, like shushing a dugout thats still beating you by 4 runs late in the game, is hysterical.

    Disagree if you are in a jam late in the game and the game is on the line and you get out of it, I see no problem with that emotion. You will never see a pitcher get in a jam early get out of it and start fist pumping, maybe swearing into his glove, but not fist pumping....Joba? Rodney? Pap? etc what they do is bull****, act like you been there before....

    The bat flip down by 6 and throw a "shoosh" at the opposing dugout rounding 3rd? Stop. Put your head down and walk in the dugout youngin. If somebody on the Marlins DID NOT do anything there I would have been shocked....

    AROD doesn't even do an exaggerated batflip or stare.....Papi is a better example :wink2:

    Ok I love your avatar...arod's smug look is almost as satisfying for me as it was for him.

    I went to all four games in Oakland, first night, one of my ex students works in ticket sales for the A's, somehow a vendor turned their tickets back in for the night and I ended up with them. Diamond level (behind home plate on the field) all you can eat, seats. You have to walk through the player tunnel to get to the seats. As I'm walking through I see Alex and Carlos teaching like four or five kids how to swing a bat. Later in the game, I see Alex come out of the batting cage, on his way to the dugout, holding his bats and he sees a little girl in the stands crying, so he climbs up one of the steps, for the cameramen and hands her one of his bats. She never stopped smiling the rest off the game. She and her parents decked out in Oakland gear.
    Alex might seem like a villain to the outside world or even disingenuous, but I think, he's probably a really good guy. I'm glad he's been a good citizen this year, I'm even more happy that he's doing his job on the field. I will continue to root for the guy...

    While I don't think Arod is a boy scout (what pro player or celeb really is?) he's clearly not the villain the media makes him out to be.
