    If we hadn't made the trade then maybe Noesi would be our long reliever and we wouldn't have gotten to see Phelps in MLB yet.

    Shelley Duncan is 13th in MLB on OPS and tied for 5th in walks.

    Ian Kennedy's fastball ranked the highest in all of baseball last year, according to the Fangraphs pitch value tool (FWIW).

    Maybe but Cashman was on record ins saying that he wanted Noesi stretched out to start this year so he would be in AAA right now.

    Wasn't Doug Fister's fastball at one point rated the best pitch in baseball on Fangraphs?
    40 pitchers, ever, have an ERA+ of 130 or higher for their career. 15 have 140 or higher. 3 guys have 150 or higher - one is right at 150, the second place guy is at 154, and Mariano Rivera is at 205.

    Of course, in retrospect, Cashman may have been trying to position Noesi as a trade chip. Wouldn't be the first time he tried to do something like that

    I'm always happy to see he is still playing whenever his name is mentioned. Outside of 2005(?) he's been the definition of mediocrity, but I always liked him.

    2004 was when he was with us. Cashman went with Womack for 1 month int0 2005 until Cano took over.

    Melancon's getting killed tonight - came in to face six batters, all scored and three hit HRs. I'm not sure I'm doing the math correctly, but I think his ERA is now 49.50. Even considering the team he plays for, I can't say I'm happy he's pitching so poorly, I always liked him.

    I'm the opposite. I hope Aceves gets hit that hard next time out.

    I thought he would get lit up in the AL. His stuff with shaky command and a straight fastball don't translate well in this league.

    I expect the Sox will have no choice but to send him to AAA.

    Re: The Former Yankee Performance Thread v4.0

    Mark Melancon achieved a dubious sort of Red Sox and major league history. He was shelled for six runs without retiring a batter, giving up three home runs, including back-to-back home runs (one an absolute moonshot by Josh Hamilton to right, another a blast to dead center by Adrian Beltre). He tied a major league record (at least dating to 1918) by allowing three homers without recording an out. In just two innings this year spanning four appearances, Melancon has allowed five home runs, matching his total yield in 74 1/3 innings in the entire 2011 season with the Astros.

    Melancon has been scored upon in all four of his outings, making him the first Red Sox pitcher ever to give up runs in four consecutive appearances of one inning or less to start his Red Sox career. The six runs he allowed without recording an out are also tied for the most by a Red Sox pitcher since at least 1918.

    Melancon’s struggles have been sufficiently extraordinary (of the 18 batters he’s faced this year, he’s retired six) that despite the incredibly early stage of the season, the Red Sox may be in a position where — assuming that he is not injured and in need of a trip to the disabled list — they have to consider extraordinary measures, chiefly, whether to option Melancon to the minors.

    D-backs improve their teams chances in the standing high jump event by recalling Cody Ransom from AAA.

    I don't know what is more impressive that he threw 38 consecutive or the that old "record" as far back as they checked was Tim Wakefield with 30

    In his second start he allowed no runs and threw 13.1 pitches per inning. In his first and third starts combined he had a 27.00 ERA and 33.0 pitches per inning.

    Edit: Earlier this week Jeff Karstens, Kerry Wood, and Lance Berkman went on the disabled list and Jose Contreras was activated from the disabled list.
