Collin Balester is in AAA Indianapolis with the Pirates organization.  All MLB spring training he didn't give up a hit and only had 1 walk. In last nights AAA game he pitched 2 perfect innings with 1 K! He still hasn't given up a hit in more than a month. His fastball is at 91-94MPH and his curveball is  really good. His change up is really coming around. His command is so much better.  I hope he keeps this up. Spinman

Good for him! I'd love that adventure if I were washed up.

I would have thought Mike, what's his name, the lefty, would have been the one to end up there.

At that point in the game, who cares? Fun fact: The Yankees scored more runs today than we have scored so far this year.

Watch the Sox pitchers close the door for 3 days.

Souza - .125 / .300 / .125, 4 walks, 8Ks, (2 for 16) in his first week as a regular starter for Tampa.  He'll turn it around this week as I just benched him on my fantasy team for Austin Jackson.

update: Souza, 1-2, RBI, BB tonight.   :doh:

Clippard's first 3 appearances in Oakland: 1 ER, 3IP, 3BBs, 1K.  One loss, no saves.

Blevins will be the Mets closer in LHP situations going forward according to Collins, with Meija being out.

He's a stud. Next mike morse as I've been saying for a couple of years now.  Too bad we didn't have a spot for him.

That's kind of insulting, Mike Morse can't play defense.

He wasn't as good as Souza, but he did come up as a SS IIRC.

It defies reason why Rizzo traded Blevins for den Dekker and kept Cedeno...then DFA'd him.

It must have been about the arb win for Blevins.
