Red Sox Blog, but other Boston Sports Welcome!
Joker Marchant Stadium? Awesome.
So DET two starters from last year are now:a) out of baseball - retiredb) apprarently out of baseball - incarceratedOn a somewhat related note, I find it refreshing to read that the NY media are still a bit concerned about how Farnsworth's psyche will adapt to NY and whether he is up for the role even after they invested $17MM on the guy. Yikes.I know Boston is tough, but we have 3 new high profiled guys (admittedly not 3 years $17 MM profile) that are being billed as the new bigger, stronger bullpen. But Seanez (who sucked in Boston, granted a while back), Taverez (a noted hothead, since his days in CLE), and Riske (who sucked sooooo badly last SEP the Tribe refused to use him in a penant race) don't seem to be facing a ton of scrutiny and question marks like the Fonz.
PS - nice new link on the CHB blog. will have to check out when I have more time...
I was thinking of giving the CHB blog its own post, since it's so great.And yeah, ridiculous that just a year ago everyone was wondering why Detroit needed two All-Star closers; and now they have zero.
