    Hopefully Ruben Alaniz will pitch better than he did with the Mariners earlier in the year 4 innings, 11hits, 9 earned runs, 3 home runs allowed, 3 walks and a 20. 25 in 4 appearances.

    Matt, it may be ironic to send you back down after just one game, but considering how you performed in that game, you ought to know.

    It is like he was Uninvited. Perhaps he suffered from a (Sister) blister on his pitching hand, his pitches lacked the movement to be described as jagged little pills.

    Two guys who's "stuff" just never impressed me (a noted non-scout) were Herget and Bowman. Obviously I want to see a lot more from Kuhnel, but the next AAA guy I'd like to see is Alex Powers. At least to evaluate.
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    They’re just trying to stay afloat with Garrett out and no replacement allowed.

    Harsh rule that doesn’t allow a replacement on a long suspension.

    There should be plenty of garbage time opportunities down the stretch in which he can audition.
    I'm just going to go find a cash machine.

    Saw Alaniz in yesterday's game. Looked like he could be decent.
