    Yesterday, I wrote about how successful Rafael Soriano has been since he was installed as the closer for the New York Yankees. That post tried to mitigate some of the loss of an injury to the best closer in the history of the game. That was the rosier side of the bullpen injury story. The flip side of the injuries to Mariano Rivera and David Robertson is more high leverage events for the likes of Cory Wade and Boone Logan. Wade, in particular, seems to be wilting under the exposure. He had a dynamic start to the season. He was compiling amazing strikeout totals. But suddenly, he seems like a mop up kind of reliever at best and his lack of pure stuff has been even more…well…lacking.

    Also, a new rule: any player dinged for PEDs cannot play in an ASG within the next 12 months of the beginning of their suspension. That covers players who get caught in the 2nd half of a season so they can’t be selected in the following ASG.

    He's missed extensive time the last two years due to DL stints by playing at full tilt. You keep comparing him to random players (Crawford and Hardy),

    Good tactic, attack format over content ? Do you know Peter Angelos personally to be calling him a SCUMBAG ? And do you have any thing to back up Ensburg

    I think finding a negative comment about the Yankees in Ichiro's statement is making a mountain out of teeny tiny mole hole. Good luck to him in Miami.

    I think you're having a stroke.

    But, to try and respond to this mess... indicting someone because they're an idiot is completely unrelated
