It appears it will be a busy week at Triple-A Charlotte for White Sox pitchers. Freddy Garcia will be moved up from Single-A Kannapolis and will make a start with Charlotte on Tuesday, according to White Sox sources. Jake Peavy‘s first rehab start will be Thursday with the Knights. The consensus among Sox brass is, if Garcia has two good starts at Triple-A, he will be a viable alternative in the fifth-starter role.
The Knight’s marketing department is going nuts. A Cy Young and a World Series winner!
I asked Saberhagen what he looks for in a young pitcher. From a mechanical standpoint, Saberhagen insists, “The release point and arm angle must be consistent. The ball will react differently if the release point changes. A pitcher has to repeat the same delivery with all of his pitches.”
Regarding the mental aspect, Saberhagen said, “I like to see cockiness—not arrogance—and a kind of swagger in the way they walk.
BA had the walking part down!
“We’ve got to play good within our division,” said reliever Scott Linebrink, who gave up three runs over 1 1/3 innings. “We played a couple of good teams well, but we have to continue that against the division, especially if we’re going to come out on top in this thing.”
Why is this POS allowed to talk? Shut your damn mouth Brikey.
What in the world did Kenny see in this wreck and gave him a 4-year deal? I remember looking at his declining ratios (HR, K, BB, K/BB) at the time of the signing and screaming what a bloody mistake that was.
Guillen is not considering using middle reliever D.J. Carrasco as a starter any time in the near future. Guillen said today that Carrasco should just concentrate on doing what he’s doing and not worry about being a starter.
Speaking of D.J., Jim has a nice post on him.
Ozzie’s mad and he’s not going to take it anymore:
“If I see someone hit my player, and I know they hit him on purpose it’s two guys going down. I don’t care if I get suspended,” Guillen said. “I rather have me suspended for two games than have my players on the DL for 30 days.”
Rogers Communications, the company that owns the Blue Jays, wants to bring its costs under control. The Blue Jays have said they don’t have to deal Halladay, who has over $20MM left on his contract, for financial reasons.
Halladay wasn’t traded so his contract is still on Toronto’s budget. The same is true for the Vernon Wells contract.
