Threw at pretty much the only guy in tonight's lineup that can't afford a suspension other than Seabass. Pussy.


Eh, eh's the only regular in the lineup. I think that has more to do with it than thinking Ortiz wouldn't retaliate.

Today on Walkoff Walk Rob Iracane called out Papelbon for throwing at Lind. He dug up some historical stats on batters HBP after their 3rd or 4th home run of the day, essentially saying it was a dickish move on Paps' part. To that I say: Fuck you, Rob Iracane.

I know these games are meaningless and the players don't give a shit, but now you're looking at maybe having to go to the bullpen early and that sucks.

I don't see any reason for him to even be starting this game. With his back just shut him down. He's not going to help in the post season.

He's injured. That's not necessarily the same thing as being done, even in the mid-40s. I'm looking forward to Wake's next start in April.

@ 4 million bucks for the innings + ERA he gives us even if he only lasts 4 - 5 months I agree with you even if he's painful to watch now.

"If you're in the mood for a more exciting game, switch to ESPN and watch the Tigers-Minnesota game, Tiggers just tied it up 2-2."

As exciting as the Nats hitting a game winning grand slam? (A day after Dukes runs face first into the scoreboard and flips backward to win it) For those wondering why you should hold onto Paps until his arm is hamburger meet, let me introduce you to Krod.

By the way, despite how Wake is performing today, do you think he would return to a limited capacity (first half/pen/spot start) or is he the kind of guy who would want to start all year? I would ask on the main board, but I can't. I am curious to see how he views his role.

The good news is they wont have a crippled double play machine at third base, or a corpse behind the plate next year.

Well, from various examples throughout his career, he seems willing to fill any role the team asks of him.
At his age, who knows? He may at some point feel differently.
I'm all for Wake starting as many games as possible next year.

Annnnd.... just misssed another dinger.

The team expected and planned for injury to starters by signing several reclamation projects and lining up several AAA starters. Back in June, plenty of us were complaining about Buchholz not getting his chance early enough... that was because Wakefield lasted longer than expected and Penny and Smoltz proved to be durable but mediocre instead of fragile stars. I expect that 2010 will look the same, just with different names. Whether Bowden or Tazawa would be first in line for callup isn't so clear yet.

Bad Wake was going on, until he was replaced by Bad Cabrera. I am bypassing the wine in favor of rum.

I agree with this. Wakefield (even more this year than in past years) was extremely productive for the first half and was more than worth the $4M he is paid based on that. I truly think that management believes that any production from Wakefield past the first 2/3 of the year is gravy.
