Maybe that’s all Andy Marte needed – for the Indians to break his toe and let it heal.

As many questions as I’ve gotten answered on chat, no one has ever answered:

What pitcher is that in the background on here? I’ve been asking since the update.

I’ve been wondering the same thing, lol.

It is just a generic picture. It isn’t of anyone.

I saw Tim answer that in a chat once, if I remember correctly he said that it wasn’t any specific pitcher.

Damn you Tim, sending me on a wild goose chase.

Which GM shouldn’t be creative and trade for starting pitching?

A last place team’s gm.

The bullet point didn’t say be creative and trade for expensive, short-term starting pitching. It was equivalent to saying, “Jon Daniels should consume oxygen.”

Theo’s and Tito’s confidence in Okijima, and DelCarmen, and Ramirez has caught up to them. Only solution I can see is Sox have to give up prospects, and get a reliever who can bridge the 7th or 8th inning. Season’s not over yet, but Yanks and Rays sure have a lot of talent.

Detached muscle in shoulder for Peavy. That sounds very painful…

I would love for the Yankees to acquire DeJesus

No need, and it seems like the Royals are asking for a lot for him. The system is thin as it is, no reason to trade more pieces away for a bat when you boast one of the top offenses in the league.

The Yankees system is very very rich.

If we constantly have to run Huffman or Curtis out there every other day, then I would say there would be a decently big need. Move Swisher to DH, and start an OF of Gardner-Granderson-DeJesus, and when A-Rod or Jorge need to DH give one of those four a day off.

We are really really missing a 4th/5th OFer.

I’m so glad the Braves didn’t trade Yunel Escobar for Peavy.

Besides Romine and Montero, I can’t think of one prospect considered to be a quality everyday major leaguer. Pitching is suspect too. They have many fringe players between prospect and major league like Russo, Joba, and Cervelli but they are not exactly quality.

Zach McAllister too, but at the top, I agree. The Yankee farm is very very rich at the bottom with the likes of Sanchez, Murphy, Heathcott, Brackman, Banuelos, and De Leon.

Also, Joba is having an off year or an off start of the year, I understand that. This is also a guy who put up a pretty decent ERA at the beginning of last year before his arm got super tired at the end of the season. He’s only 23, the jury is still out on him. No reason to get all dismissive and doom-and-gloom over it because hes having a bad year in the bullpen.

Would the White Sox consider jumping into the Cliff Lee sweepstakes now that Peavy’s season may be over?

That’s a shame about Peavy.
