So Piug is starting tonight for the Reds. Guess is he appealing his suspension?

Also, the Indians other acquisition Franmil Reyes is in the lineup at DH as well.

Also Kemp is betting 8th for the Cubs. Why is it taking so long for Houston's pitchers to get activated?



Starting for the reds? Is this a typo or did the trade fall through??
I'm looking for Ray Finkle.... and a clean pair of shorts. I'm just a very big Finkle fan. This is my Graceland, sir.

I'm not a big barstool guy but I did tune into the Starting 9 podcast to hear their taken on the deadline.

It begins with 30 mins of Astro praise while at the time moaning and bltching that we're so far ahead of the pack.

Dallas Braden (major DBag) was fishing over the Sanchez deal and discussing the teams ability to develop guys no one wants.

It's somewhat of a rough listen because it's barstool but it's a good insight and analysis on the trades and the organization as a whole.

I love the roasting of the yanks as much as anyone. But I can't help but chuckle at the ignorance of the media who keeps stating the Yankees let the Astros get Greinke over them when Greinke had the Yankees on his no f****** trade list

So Danny Salazar is on the mound tonight for Cleveland. Didn't realize this is his 1st game back since the end of 2017:

Quote:

CLEVELAND -- The long-awaited return of right-hander Danny Salazar is scheduled to take place Thursday.

Salazar, who has not appeared in a major league game since Sept. 27, 2017, will be activated today and will start Thursday in the series finale against Houston.

Manager Terry Francona said Salazar will be on a pitch count, with right-hander Adam Plutko available should things go awry.

"He will pitch kinda as a modified opener because he's (only) been to about 70 pitches (in a rehab appearance)," Francona said. "We certainly hope it's not one inning, that would be not good. So we'll kinda build, hopefully build into the game and build into the season. If Danny goes far enough into the game, we'll see what the score is and we'll adjust, but the idea is to have Plutko ready if it's an earlier exit rather than late."

Salazar has made six rehab appearances, two each at Rookie League Arizona, Double-A Akron and Triple-A Columbus, posting a 2.60 ERA with 28 strikeouts over 17 1/3 innings.

"The last couple have been pretty good," Francona said. "He's not throwing with the velocity with which he did two years ago, but he's had a good breaking ball and a good split-change and I think he sat at 92 (mph)-ish. The reports were generally pretty good. I think the biggest thing was that Danny felt really good and felt that he was ready to pitch. That's probably the biggest thing."

It's been a long road to recovery for the 2016 All-Star, who underwent right shoulder surgery in March last year, sidelining him for the entire season.

"It was hard because we missed Danny," Francona said. "He kept getting to points where he didn't feel like he could push through and he was finally able to. So hopefully he comes back and really helps us because our medical people have spent a lot of sweat and work with Danny to try and get him back to help us."

It's crazy to me that Clint hurdle only got 2 games. That dude has been having his pitchers throw at heads all year long.

Easy to personalize, I do all kinds. Each one can be specific to what they want. Doesn't even have to be for this, just needed to justify buying a case.


I'll take 2. Thanks!
