Maybe my cartography is a bit off, but isn't that just around the corner from where Scores used to be?

You're right, probably just a coincidence.......

Verducci writes almost a full column promoting Johnny Damon.
Certainly reads as if he's shilling for Boras:

Luis Mendoza, former Red Sox shitty prospect, traded in 2006 from Portland for Bryan Corey, is a surprise of the spring for the Royals and has made their starting rotation.

Josh Reddick takes lefty George Sherrill deep in the 7th of the Sea v. Oak game. Back to back with Cespedes.

Also had a double. Still think he'll end up as a very very good player (maybe a one or two time All Star selection) through his career and will end up a much better player than Kalish (who I'm worried about ever staying healthy...). Would have preferred to send him for Bailey instead of Reddick. Ah well....

It's that time of year when lots of names hit the wires

Angels send Andrew (brother of Austin, son of former Sox player Kevin) Romine down
They also sent Brad Mills (no relation) down.

Mets signed Bobby Scales

Padres sent Jeff Suppan (he must be 40) to minor league camp

Kevin "we hardly knew ye" Millwood's contract was bought by the Mariners as he made the team
Drew "we could hardly discuss ye" Sutton was sent down by the Braves

Josh Reddick is hitting third. Against a lefty.

He's got to be feeling pretty good about this trade.

Sometimes those lottery tickets pay out. Sometimes they don't... remember Engel Beltre? Same two organizations, not quite the same results.

I was at the Pirates-Phillies game last night. Yamaico Navarro pinch hit and drew a walk against Cliff Lee, eventually coming around to score the Pirates' first and only run off Lee.

Josh Reddick, batting third in the order (in front of Cespedes) was hit in the back of his neck or his upper shoulder, then his jaw, by Mijares, Royals' relief pitcher, this afternoon. He lay on the ground for a while. but as it was a breaking ball, he was able to get up and walk back to the dugout. I, too, miss that kid. He looks more mature this year, which I guess isn't surprising. . .

I was shocked to see all those strikeouts, I doubt he's ever had that many in consecutive starts. Would really suck if an improvement stuff-wise came at the cost of his elbow.

Please provide link(s) on stuff like this.

More info from the North County Times

Kelly was scratched from making a start in Salt Lake City and was placed on the seven-day disabled list. The team described the move as precautionary.

Kelly has followed an impressive showing this spring with two strong starts for Tucson. He has a 2.25 ERA and 14 strikeouts in 12 innings this season. In spring, Kelly struck out 18 batters and walked only two in 20 2/3 innings. He finished with a 1.74 ERA in six games and impressed Padres manager Bud Black and pitching coach Darren Balsley.

But Kelly reported elbow tenderness after his last start on Wednesday. He was "OK" when examined in Tucson, Byrnes said. But the Padres want the right-hander to take an MRI and a have a checkup performed here by Padres doctors.

I watched Papebon close last night against the Giants. Ho hum game, 5 - 2 going into the ninth. He didn't do the side turn glare thing like he used to and he looked smooth and easy throwing. Up to 93 on the four seamer but with good horizontal movement. He looked like just a normal (good) reliever. Wasn't the Yankees in a one run game though. I miss the galoot.

I was watching the Astros game the other day and Lowrie made some spectacular plays ranging into the hole. One of them involved one of his arcing throws from the hole reaching first in time to beat out the speedy Tony Gwynn Jr. It was damned impressive.

I think I would trade Melancon back to Houston for Weiland straight up.

I just saw that Melancon threw a scoreless 1.1 innings for Pawtucket on Saturday while the circus in Boston was going on.

Cleveland will be in Boston for a series starting on May 10th. If Lowe's World Series ring isn't found by police by then, I think it would be a really cool gesture by the club if they presented him with another one.

Yeah it would be really cool, but I'm guessing the Sox give the authorities more than a few weeks to figure this out before splurging on a second ring for Lowe. I'm guessing the cost of a duplicate would be more than the original, given the fact that they aren't setting up to make multiples and the time constraint. That and I think Lowe could probably afford to have the exact ring made himself. We're not talking about an old timer here who made little in the way of a salary over the years and is living on a fixed income. Yeah it would be cool, but ....................

From SalemSox broadcaster Evan Lepler:

Hey Sox fans, remember Miles Head? He's currently leading the California league in hits, RBI and slugging percentage.


In 19 games for high class-A Stockton: .377/.402/.727/1.130 over 80 PA with 5 HR, 20 RBI & 16 runs. Oddly he's got a reverse platoon split, .125/.125/.188/.313 in 16 PA vs LHP, while mashing righthanders at .443/.470/.869/1.339 clip in 64 PA. His home field has also been kind (.457/.474/.971/1.445 in 36 PA) compared to the road (.310/.341/.524/.865 in 44 PA) in a league renowned for its elevation- and dry-air-inflated offense.
