« Phillies purchase contract of extreme junkball lefty | Main | Game chat: Owings, Lieber duel at Citizens Bank Park »

Don't know much about his stuff or his ability to get his stuff back, but his future is almost certainly as a reliever. That of course means he should get a look by a number of clubs, but if you can't break 85 mph as a righthander, you better be really good at some other aspect of pitching. Otherwise, forget it. Perhaps he can still learn a knuckleball.

Sign him...sign everyone...I want Jesse Orosco!

is fernando valenzuela still alive?

So, what is the Brandywine to Boyertown MLB Player tally at now?

Even with a bum arm, he's still better than Mad Dog.


Dobbs starting at 3B, batting 6th. Otherwise standard lineup with Ruiz behind the plate.

1. J Rollins, SS
2. S Victorino, RF

Chatter on local Astros sports talk radio is Brad Lidge for Aaron Rowand. I don't think there is any actual discussion between the teams on this. I believe it's more like fans seeing a team with a need (Phillies need relief help) that has a position of need for them (Astros need a CF or a catcher). I'll give them Barajas!

Lidge for Rowand? please...

to be clear, that's "please (rolls eyes)". don't want to give the wrong impression.

Send them Burrell and eat some of his contract! Of course, Burrell won't want to go there... No Rowand for the Stros!

How about Barajas, Rowand, and Cholly for Lidge?

Rowand's not any better than Burrell, you know, he's just performed better over the past two months.

Tray, I know. I am just tired of the whole Burrell act. At least Rowand brings some tenacity to the ballpark and would rather swing the bat than take the free pass.
