What is your opinion of the A.J. Pierzynski signing?
MJH on accountability
“@Ken_Rosenthal: Sources: #Angels RHP Jered Weaver out 4 to 6 weeks with broken left (non-pitching) elbow.”
Mitch Moreland may have just been awarded Ranger of the Month and we're only a week into the season. The Angels are officially the Rangers of old with a worse pitching staff. It's pretty funny.
Ruh-roh! Year of the Mitch!
That's really too bad and I've seen the replay a few times and can't quite see what happened. Broken? I have a feeling he'll be only one of many this season to get Mitchslapped. (Too soon?)
All I can do is laugh at Weaver's injury when I see this:http://www.bbtia.com/storage/files/weaver082911.gif
Call me pessimistic, but I believe something else was wrong with Weaver, and this buys them time to address the underlying issue behing his velocity nosedive
^^^ exactly. Broken elbow is BS
lol Michelle @ Mitchslapped
They're a .500 team without a *healthy* Weaver. Oh well, time to focus on those pesky A's and upstart Mariners.
Weaver has been dropping velocity and k% for years. I doubt 4-6 weeks on the DL is going to alter that very much.
How do you go from "X-rays were negative" to "broken elbow"? Did they x-ray the wrong elbow?
I'm guessing it was probably a chip fracture or something that just didn't show up from the first xray angle they took Sunday night. Could be something small, and probably is.
"Trade for Darvish", says one poster at Halos Heaven. Interesting idea...is there any player that the Rangers would even consider trading Darvish for?
Mike Trout. That would be about it.
"Interesting idea...is there any player that the Rangers would even consider trading Darvish for?"
No. I'm happy with what we have.
Oh come on... not even Mike Trout + Pujols + $200 million + a notarized apology from Hamilton for being a douche?
BZ, that works for me.
"Oh come on... not even Mike Trout + Pujols + $200 million + a notarized apology from Hamilton for being a douche?"
No. Then we would be the Angels and they would be the Rangers. They would would beat us and we would be on suicide watch....like they are.
I wouldn't trade them Borbon let alone Darvish. Fuck the Angles.
Give them Derek Lowe. Double their Lowe, double our pleasure!! #bullpenislowe
^^^^ yessss #sportshate
Ben and BZ +1
^---- hahahaha Bull Penis Lowe?
Considering Pujols couldn't catch Pete Incaviglia in footrace right now, I'm not sure I would take him on.
He's pretty slow right now, but he actually beat the throw from 2nd the other day, by like 1/4 of a step, even though he was called out. That ball wasn't hit very hard, and Pujols was probably going as fast as his injured feet would let him. Gotta give him credit for that, he didn't shrug off what looked like an easy DP just because his feet hurt.
At least he plays hurt. Hamilton won't even play when he has a sore toe. (Funny that Pujols outplays Hamilton even when he's hurt, come to think of it)
Hamilton played the entire 2011 post season with a hernia...So please don't tell me he won't play hurt. What a jackass statement.
