    I haven’t heard any rumblings about the Red Sox shopping for a catcher. If anything they should be shopping for relief help.

    Are you kidding me sherman? Yesterday it was just Sherrill for Silva straight up. You New York writers.. Im suprised you even know who the Dodgers are. First off, the Dodgers arent trading a pitcher like Sherrill, a valuable and servicable reliever (do you remember that he was a closer for baltimore?) for an old washed up retread that nobody wants? And now you put Carroll in there too? That contract they gave Carroll is what 3 months old? I bet the ink hasnt dried yet. If the Dodgers were “penny-pinching” they wouldnt have signed him to that deal in the first place. So you want us to give up our super ute guy, and our second best reliever, that would be the closer on most teams, for an overpaid, unwanted retread? Funny stuff. Its amazing to me that people like you have a job in an economy like this. .

    That Bobby Bonilla contract is madness! Scott Boras has nothing on that guy’s agent.

      Steve Phillips. Oh how the rest of the league misses thee…

    Yea, the dodgers paid a lot to get Sherrill. I don’t think they would give up on him that easily for Silva.

    Hitters have a .178 BABIP against Silva. Early Season Success = fluke

    His control is too poor to be a reliever. For all the crap he takes, he’s not yet had a horrific outing that warrants a move to the bullpen.

  8. icedrake523 5 years ago

    His control is anything but fine. It’s always the reason for his awful starts. They’d have too many lefties in the pen if they moved him there. Not to mention there’s no one to replace him in the rotation.

    The Mets really ought to consider moving Feliciano. So many teams are looking for reliable relief help, they might be able to hold him hostage for ransom to the highest bidder.

  10. icedrake523 5 years ago

    They already have 2 lefties in the pen. Valdes and Takahashi have pitched well enough to stay up with the team. If anything, they need a righty in the pen with Igarashi out.

  11. Suzysman 5 years ago

    No, either Harang or Arroyo will be the next; possibly both.

    And it’s almost money in the bank one of them will be there soon. Or, I guess, money in the pen in this case…

  12. mrsjohnmiltonrocks 5 years ago

    Jeff Suppan was moved to the pen today by the Brewers. They’re in.

  13. mrsjohnmiltonrocks 5 years ago

    I say that knowing full well that Arizona has NO lefty’s in their pen. Start there, Mets.

  14. icedrake523 5 years ago

    Justin Upton for Pedro Feliciano. I’m sure the Mets would even throw in Jeff Francoeur, too.

    I’m obviously kidding but the Mets have no reason to deal Feliciano.

  15. icedrake523 5 years ago

    Of the 13 lefty PAs against Hisanori Takahashi, they’re .182/.250/.273 with 1 BB and 6 K. The Takahashi from last year (Ken) was better against righties than lefties.

    Of the 38 righty PAsa gainst H. Takahashi, they’re .250/.417/.357 with 8 BB and 10 K.

    So there goes one reason for putting Perez in.

    They could use a long reliever but Fernando Nieve should be delegated to that role. Manny Acosta might take on that role with Nieve taking Igarashi’s place since he’s on the DL right now.

    Perez is not a guy who should be a reliever. With having him start, you can make sure he’s well prepared and develop a game plan with him. He just does not seem like the type of guy who can warm up a bit before an inning and come in and pitch well. Then there’s the previously mentioned issue with his control. Last thing you want is him coming to face Howard, Utley, and Ibanez and walking Howard and then falling behind 3-0 to Utley. If his problem was just the long ball, it’d be a different story. But he tends to walk a lot of guys before he gives up said long ball.

    And of course there’s the fact that he has the talent to throw 8 shutout innings with 10 Ks.

    yeah, knew you were joking :) Just knew your joke was really on point too, with it likely happening in Cincy soon.

    But I can only halfway agree with the assessment of the Reds. Because the thing is, they have been trying to trade them for a while, and it just doesn’t look like its happening. They have Maloney who should be in the majors now, Wood has a strong argument and of course they will probably rush Chapman because, well…

    Besides, Dusty always needs more young arms he can destroy – that should be their priority number one!

  17. mrsjohnmiltonrocks 5 years ago

    I don’t really think they want to trade him, or will, or even should-but this is the place where you can speculate on trades, right? I only threw Feliciano’s name out there because he’s the kind of guy that maybe a dozen teams would seriously consider acquiring.

    I thought the cubs had a “surplus” of lefties. Check it out, not so Sherman, Sherrills a leftie too! You moron!
