It’s Lincecum vs Hamels in about 40 minutes. It’s not the Mariners, but this is a game you want to watch.

    I don’t know about having a pitcher who’s up to 92 pitches (and prone to throw a lot of pitches) leading off the inning in a tie game. It was fine as he doubled and then scored, but is the Phillies’ bullpen/bench hitting really that bad?

    100: Isn’t that just what the manager/pitching coach peptalks are for, to tell a pitcher to trust their stuff, etc.?

    You’re right, it doesn’t make sense. Nevertheless, if he blows out his elbow in one of his first few starts throwing nasty breaking balls when he could be throwing his 95+ past most of the lineup, it looks extremely bad. Like I said, it’s a conspiracy theory.

    Makes as much sense as him being too frightened to throw it though.

    Or maybe the catcher had no idea when to call for the deuce? Let’s face it, I doubt that Molina had no idea what Tim could throw, what he could trust to get over the plate and won’t for at least 2 starts.

    Clemens to the Yankees. Yay, he says sarcastically. I wonder if he’ll blow out a hamstring also?

    so, who’s taller — Lincecum at 5’1″ (cough) or Geary at 6 ft (cough)

  7. smb on May 6th, 2007 8:24 pm

    5’1″, you say? Pity, I can no longer look up to him then.

  8. msb on May 6th, 2007 8:25 pm

    sorry, Tim is 5’11”. really. it says so.

    thank goodness, more Clemens coverage.

  9. msb on May 6th, 2007 8:30 pm

    ok, did I really read that the Yankees are on national tv again tomorrow night? will we see the Clemens footage again?

  10. patl on May 6th, 2007 8:47 pm

    Yes, and yes. Oh, as a side note, the M’s are on national TV again also.

  11. msb on May 6th, 2007 8:58 pm

    so, lets see, the Ms can be baffled once more by a pitcher they don’t know, we can have Roger shoved down our throats and maybe someone else gets hit! national excitement!

    Hooray Rotoworld:

    Jose Lopez was held out of Sunday’s game because of a bruised right ankle.
    If Lopez can’t play Monday, Willie Bloomquist will make three or four more outs.

  13. smb on May 6th, 2007 9:56 pm

    If they refer to him as Boom Boom or The Ignitor in the future, I will elevate them to pantheon status.

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Phillies right-hander Freddy Garcia was injured Sunday night when he ran into an equipment cart that had stopped along the warning track in San Francisco’s ballpark.

    Can anybody here do a good imitation of Nelson’s laugh from “The Simpsons”?

    Freddy must have thought it was the beverage cart.

    I’d be interested in seeing a bit about Clemens signing with the Yankees. I mean, yeah he’s Roger Clemens, but gosh, he is turning 45 this year and they’re paying him a lot of money.

    Also, doesn’t ARod have a clause that says he has to be the highest paid player in baseball? Doesn’t 28 million a year mean Clemen’s is higher paid, even if he isn’t getting all of it?

    Oh, yes. But you’ll have to take my word for it.

    I deputize you to go research A-Rod’s contract and report back on his escalator clauses and potential consequences.

  19. joser on May 7th, 2007 10:31 am

    doesn’t ARod have a clause that says he has to be the highest paid player in baseball?

    Since this isn’t the last two years of his deal, no. And because Clemens is a pitcher, also no.

    Team must increase salaries for 2009 and 2010 by the higher of $5 million or $1 million greater than the average annual value of the non-pitcher with highest annual average value.

    Source: USA Today

    But Cot’s says that the team isn’t required to pay that, only that it gives ARod a(nother) way to opt out of the contract if they don’t.

    MLB draft will be televised on ESPN2 on June 7th at 11 am PT….weeeeeee

    How is that legal? What if two players have that clause?
