Random Rumblings

October 7, 2008

the angels lost a heart breaker yesterday, and got kicked out of the playoffs all at once. I hate the red sox at this point; we really need to see another american league team step up and challenge th sox, especially one from the eastern division (preferrably, the yankees).

was that veritek tag legitimate? I really don’t think so. I’m really not sure of the exact rule, but the ball popped out of his glove after it hit the ground. I don’t think that was an out.

a random thought about the cardinals.let’s get this out of the way: the padres were horrible this season, really terrible. estes and bard were out on waivers and cleared them; they chose to become free agents. if I remember correctly, bard had a bad season because of the pujols collision with him that put him on the dl for over 100 games. he is a nice left handed hitting catcher that can hit and has some pop. he is also a really good defensive catcher.

shawn estes, a lefthanded starter, did not pitch during the 2007 season because of reconstructive elbow surgery. he pitched at the padres triple-A affiliate in portland, but did not do so well. I would bring this guy in on an incentive laden deal and see if he can make the team. he can be a spare starter if need be or a lefty specialist…I’m just trying to think out of the box here (maybe too much).
