  1. What a road for McGowan it has been.

    Always had great stuff to be a stud in the majors, just didn’t have confidence.

    It finally came together in 07, but these injuries have really slowed him down.

      slowed is an understatement, could be his last chance to have a career in baseball, im pulling for him tho , even for a bullpen roll.

      Does he know its pretty much impossible to make 400K other than at least attempting to play mlb? Youd think hed at least try rather than pack it in.

    Geez, the media are just hoping Young does to JD what Shawn Chacon did to Ed Wade.

    Dear Danny Knobler,

    No one cares any more.

    “I’d love to walk in and hug everyone every day,” Daniels said.

    Yeah, might not go over so well in a locker room, Jon.

  5. What’s all this about Michael Young? I don’t think I’ve heard anything about him lately.

      In the most recent Michale Young news, he met a three year old that cried on a video (thats on youtube) when his mother told him he wont be playing for Texas anymore.

    All this talking about Michael Young and the Rangers, and people have yet to realize that if you would stop making all theses comments, posts, blogs etc. about it all it wouldn’t be as open and both the Rangers and Young can put it behind them quicker. But I guess that’s what sport writers are supposed to do, continue talking about a topic that needs to be left alone for the sake of an organization or player.

      You think any of the writers have a genuine interest in a team or a players vs a story?

        Insert rants about East Coast Bias, ESPN is a yankees biased, ESPN is a Red Sox biased, etc.

    If michael young had to chose a villain in this ongoing trade saga it’s his age!

    • damnitsderek 4 years ago

      Speaking of villains, Danny Knobler sort of looks like The Penguin’s mentally retarded cousin.

    • johnsilver 4 years ago

      Not to mention lack of range at any position he would have value at (SS,2B) where most teams would want him for.

    Okay, I’m rooting for Ryan Drese. TWO TJ surgeries! You have TJ surgery and your arm doesn’t feel like your arm for a long time – it takes what, 12 to 18 months before your arm can pretend that a tendon is a ligament, a grueling trip through rehab land, and Drese has done it twice? And he still has a chance at a career?

    Oh, Baseball Gods, let this guy get one last chance in the bigs. I reckon he’s earned it.

      Hong-Chih Kuo still has a career. And a very good one.
      I totally agree with your post though

      • mrsjohnmiltonrocks 4 years ago

        Kuo is one of my favorite pitchers to watch. I like relief pitchers that are unhittable. It’s great that he was able to make it back. Fingers crossed for Mr. Drese and hope he can do the same.

  9. East Coast Bias 4 years ago

    Wait a minute, Scott Boras has a training facility?!

  10. Docnieto 4 years ago

    Contract year or not… I’m still rooting for Furcal to have a big year. Dee Gordon might be waiting in the wings, but he can move over to 2B if it means we can keep Raffy around.

  11. Like Max Ramirez? lol

  12. Fangaffes 4 years ago

    Now that he doesn’t have to play against Crawford, his value is much greater.

  13. The_Silver_Stacker 4 years ago

    So next year Boston will have a battle of the scrubs for the catching position

  14. start_wearing_purple

    Ramirez got claimed by the Cubs. Exposito could be ready in 2012, same for Lavarnway but he’s more of back up catcher and DH, and of course there’s Ibarra as a wild card.

  15. Lucas Kschischang 4 years ago

    Halladay himself said that McGowan has/had better stuff than he does.

  16. The_Silver_Stacker 4 years ago

    Why would he be jealous? Boston has no quality catching
