    That assumes Belisle isn't on the DL.
    He will be, I think. I'm hoping Lincoln makes it. I want to see that 95/96 gas.

    Stanton may not hook on with someone else so his career might be over.

    18 yrs in the bigs....

    Congrats Mike.

    Does Lincoln look any good though? I haven't seen him.

    I haven't seen him either. He threw 2 scoreless the other day and the quotes from Dusty have suggested he looks good. I remember seeing him with the Pirates a few years ago, but I think this is the pimped-out, post TJ version of that Mike Lincoln.

    I thought I read somewhere that Lincoln's control is a big issue?

    Now, you realize that Stanton will sign with the Cardinals and post a 3.5 ERA in 2008, right?

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

    When was the last time Belisle pitched? How likely is he to start the year on the DL?

    Think Standridge, good gas, questionable control, no quality auxiliary pitches.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    I'd assume that Lincoln, if he makes the club, has until Belisle gets back to 100% to prove himself.

    And to a lesser extent, Mercker will either pitch well or be replaced by a rejuvenated Bray.

    Actually, it kind of makes sense...

    Mercker looked good early in spring training.

    So did Majewski.

    Dustys MO is to praise guys. I like Dusty, don't get me wrong, but his first instinct is to praise them. So you have to take things with a grain of salt sometimes.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    No doubt.

    Still, 95-96 is 95-96. LoganBuck's Standridge comp sounds very feasible to me -- still I'd like to see him throw.

    I think this is great. I rarely have anything good to say about Wayne or Dusty....

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

    This is Dusty's work. He hinted at it the other day and I supect he's been pushing to just get it done with. When AGon comes back I supect Castro is done, too. And if Merck, or Brower/Lincoln, or Fogg or whatever vet, doesn't get it done, I suspect they'll be gone, too. Dusty will go with the vet over the youngster to start off maybe, but I think the vet better produce pdq once the season starts or a kid is going to be playing instead.
