    I enjoyed watching Lester work down the stretch last season. Not so much in ’13.

    I am unclear if these suspensions are being served cocurrently or consecutively

    SA with a rare clunker, as he gives up 6 earned runs in 5 innings in a Marlins defeat vs Atlanta. SA was roughed up with 3 Braves round trippers and saw his ERA blossom to 2.36 and WHIP rise to an even-Steven 1.00. Wondering if Gibby had even one of these type of poor outings in his historic 1968 1.12 ERA campaign? Without looking, Gibby’s WHIP that year had to be south of 1.00 too. What a truly amazing year for Gibby.

    Pugs? Gibson’s WHIP in 1968 was .0853.

    On the other hand, Zac Gallen is the player of the week.

    The Ozuna trade is looking like it could be historically bad. But it gets a bit of a pass as everyone wanted the Cardinals to get an offensive bomber. And at the time Alcantara and Gallen were prospects. Sometimes they hit and sometimes they miss.

    It has happened to play out so far that both have “hit” in quite a successful way.

    Oh man, I remember the hard throwing righty Mark Littell. I think Whitey managed him both in Kansas City and St. Louis.

    I remember littell a little bit, not much cause my memory isnt the best. Sad to see. Gonna become common place unfortunately as I’m getting older to see even more of guys I was watching play fall by the wayside.

    The Pirates now have both Junior Fernandez and Johan Oviedo.

    I like both Oviedo and Fernandez. They may never pan out, as my dad used to say. But they have the physical tools and stuff. Need to mature and improve their command. Both are worth giving a try out to for a club like Pittsburgh.

    There is a great article on Scott spezio out. I hadn’t realized how rough his life had turned though it was self inflicted. Nice to see that it seems he has turned it around.

    I haven’t seen the article on Spezio, but I know there were always rumors of drug usage when he was playing.

    I don’t really know on playing for 14 teams is a great stat or not but playing as long as he did was a good accomplishment.

    Vader should be coming off the 60 day for Tuesday game. Pain has subsided (mostly). Hope he does well.

    Yeah ESPN had some wild article about him a few years back. Think it was some hit and run where the cops went to his house and he hid in the closet and he had his wife at the time deal with them. Could be sketchy on my details but remember it being wild.

    Me too…but selfishly, I’m glad that it saves us the PTBNL.

    The long-time leader of the Royals, Dayton Moore, has been fired. The PBO hired manager Mike Matheny and the latter’s future could be in question.

    Being selected before Aaron Judge isn’t exactly “in the news”, but I checked in on the 2013 STL first rounds selections taken ahead of Judge. We had two selections ahead of him and both are today in the Mariners organization. Marco Gonzales and Rob Kaminsky who, at age 28, is with their AA affiliate. That draft was as close to a total bust as it gets, although Voit later did well for NYY,

    Oh now, now. Marco brought back the GREAT Tyler O’Neill and Kaminsky brought back future hall of fame Brandon Moss.
    I remember fans losing their minds at the idea of giving up Kaminsky for Moss.

    Marco does have more career strike outs than O’Neill, I checked.
