MLB Thread: Offseason

Recommended Posts

Thanks TSA. ;) Just keep pouring some more salt into the wounds, could ya???? j/k

The Yanks are suppose to have some good prospects, but they're only at AA right now. Alan Horne is a SP who's suppose to be a good prospect, though I haven't seen him. Dellin Betances as well. CF Brett Gardner and LF Josa Tabata are another pair that stick out. Other than that, I know of no one else that's suppose to be our next sure fire thing besides our Pitchers Trey (Joba, Hughes and Kennedy)

It'll be interesting to see how Bard does in AA. He sucked last year in Lancaster, but that's such a hitter's park you wonder if it screwed with his head. He dominated at Greenville, should be interesting to see how he does against better competition.

No problem :P . Im guessing the Yankees next pitchers come from either Japan or the Indians (Sabbathia).

Whoever the Yanks have going tonight (Im not even going to try and spell it), is doing just fine.

One reason we Tribe fans can't stand the Yanks. :P

Though, the Sox are starting to get to that point, too, having a bunch of former Indians on their roster. (Ramirez, Crisp, Colon - who I actually saw play in Kinston, btw; probably more I can't think of off-hand)

Just let us Indians fans finally get a WS victory, TSA. It's been 60 years since our last one! At least you've got 2 in the past 4 years. ;)

Darrell Rasner pitched last night, another good one. Maybe he'll be the Aaron Small of this year, :lol:

Arod with another homer. Thank God for Agod. Hope he gets at least 30 HR's this year.

Twins getting killed against Detroit right now. 19-3 through 8 innings. Detroit is so UP and DOWN with its play...wow must be frustrating for their fans. Damn Twins are really no better though.

Oh my god we actually won a road game

Shhh, there are 6 more games before they come back to Fenway.

Bartolo Colon is looking like a "Sergei Samsonov" type pick up for the Red Sox. The guy can still pitch just fine, and once again, Theo looks like a genious.

Colon is Three Samsonovs :lol: Jk

good job so far.

The one bright spot for my Dodgers was on Sunday that the Dodgers won the day Kershaw pitched

LOS ANGELES - Clayton Kershaw got caught up in the moment and smiled. The baby-faced pitcher had just recorded the first strikeout of his major-league career on a high fastball to the Cardinals' Skip Schumaker, the initial batter he faced. Kershaw, the unflappable kid with the sensational curveball, couldn't help it.

Then it was back to business as usual for the 20-year-old left-hander, who pumped life into the Dodgers in Sunday's 10-inning, 4-3 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals at Dodger Stadium.

Kershaw wasn't perfect and needed 32 pitches to get out of the first inning, but he was awfully good. He reached 97 mph with his fastball and dazzled with slow curveballs on a cool Sunday.

Kershaw allowed just two runs on five hits, struck out seven and walked one in his 102-pitch debut.

He didn't get the victory, but the Dodgers did on Andre Ethier's two-out RBI single to right off Mike Parisi in the

10th.

The Dodgers left for Chicago with something to hang their hat on: the left arm of Kershaw.

Kershaw exudes confidence and poise, and that didn't change when Albert Pujols crouched at the plate. He was more efficient after the first inning and threw only 42 pitches over the next four innings.

"I really wasn't that nervous," Kershaw said. "It might be hard to believe, but I really wasn't that nervous."

Kershaw's mother, Marianne, was nervous, especially since Kershaw threw so many pitches in the first inning. He used eight pitches in Pujols' at-bat in which he doubled and nine to Ryan Ludwick, whom he struck out on a fastball.

Marianne was one of 23 friends and family members who flew in from around the country for his debut.

The Texan came with monster expectations and cast his vote for the fifth spot in the starting rotation despite all the hype.

"It was just about anything you could've asked for," manager Joe Torre said. "He's the real deal."

Dodger pitchers combined for 16 strikeouts, which tied a season high. Takashi Saito struck out a career-high five and pitched a scoreless ninth and 10th inning to earn the win.

Kershaw wasn't the only one with a major-league first. Louis Maza hit his first major-league home run, a solo shot to left field off Cardinals starter Todd Wellemeyer in the first inning. It tied the game at 1-1.

When Kershaw left, the score was tied at 2-2. The Dodgers went ahead in the sixth on Russell Martin's run-scoring double before the Cardinals tied it against the Dodger bullpen in the seventh.

Too bad the young pitcher didnt get the win. I love watching young pitchers get their first MLB start, the raw emotion is pretty cool to watch unfold.

Saw it with Bucholtz and Chamberlain last season, and then with Masterson this season.

Its okay as my Dodgers are too inconsistent for me to be upset about it.

I hope he gets another start as his stuff is electric.

I just wish we could hit better :(

The Dodgers miss Furcal in the worst way.
