    Re: Mike Stanton has been told he's being let go!

    Mike Lincoln looked really good Monday on FSN. He threw 96 every pitch I believe. I mean, he's got problems for sure, but it's probably hard for Dusty to let a guy go throwing that kinda heat and he can be relied on to "throw strikes" no matter how hittable they can be... I don't know .. I gotta think Hot Rod is on the club barring a possible trade.

    He's the resident pessimist.

    Or he could be quite right.

    Jim Brower. He of the career 4.67 ERA and 9.82 spring ERA? You have got to be kidding me.

    I don't even know what this means. Suggesting that signing Stanton was even a defensible move at the time is just intellectual dishonesty.

    Very good move a long time overdue.

    I wonder if this means they are working out a Freel trade for another reliever.

    They owe Stanton $3.5 million (including the buyout) to go away...they owe Jerry Narron $900,000 to stay away....they possibly still owe Rheal Cormier some money to stay retired.

    I'm sure Bob's LOVIN' life right now....

    So I guess Bray getting sent down wasn't coupled with keeping Stanton.

    Pay attention to the open sky
