    I am very much against moving him into the starting rotation. As a lock-down closer, you have the opportunity to impact a lot more games than as a starter. His pitching style is more conducive to a closer as well. He only really has two pitches and certainly has issues with control. My fear is that the 2nd or 3rd trip through the order he is much more hittable.

    Think whether or not he stays in the starting rotation has a lot to do with how Homer Bailey does as well. If he pitches as well as he did last season, he is a solid #4 starter. His career has been marred by inconsistency though.

    Ah...

    To be fair he has flourished as a Yankee, except for his BA.

    I would think most in Cincy would feel as you feel. Broxton is good, but he's not Chapman.

    IMO Dusty Baker is an idiot. He ruined Jason Schmidt and Robb Nen's arms, and cost The Giants the World Series with his famous walk to the mound in Anaheim.

    Daniel Bard was/maybe still is the kind of pitcher that throws 99mph so easily and fluidly.

    they thought since it was so easy/effortless to throw heat that it would translate to a starting rotation spot. now he's joba 2.0 :brick: :fu: :facepalm: :(

    His Ks are progressively worse. Also helps a baby bit playing in a smaller ballpark.

    At the time, I was pissed, but it shaped up to a pretty good deal for the Tigers

    I just listened to a radio interview with Johnny Damon. Its been said before but he really comes off as dumb. This time though it was dumb and super desperate - he mentioned before about being willing to play of the league minimum for the yankees in place of granderson even if its only for a couple of months to hold granderson's spot until healthy.

    I'll always love the Caveman for his redsox days. He had a wet noodle of a throwing arm and suffered what was probably one of the most horrific bare face/head to head outfielder collisions in baseball history in 2003. I watched him a ton in 2007 when they played the yankees a lot in the old yankee stadium and damn when he got up a burst of speed to run down a fly ball it was breathtaking.

    even compared to coco crisp and jacoby ellsbury damon was that fast.

    The controversial trade we made with the Toronto Blue Jays was approved by Commissioner Bud Selig and has been almost universally celebrated by baseball experts outside of Miami for its value

    This was my favorite line:

    Well, sure, jackoff, when you trade away all your star players for prospects what the fuck do you expect to happen?
