Roster Expansion Dilemma

The 40-Man Roster Expansion rules need to be adjusted before the start of the 2013 season.  From Opening Day through August 31st, a team is only permitted to use 25 of its 40 players in the Majors.  However, September 1st through the end of the regular season the entire 40-man roster is eligible to play for the club at the MLB level. New York Yankees Manager, Joe Girardi made it...

Yankees Call Up 6

With the rosters expanding today, the Yankees have called up six minor leaguers. Francisco Cervelli, Eduardo Nunez, Chris Dickerson, Adam Warren, Cory Wade, and Justin Thomas are all with the team today. To make room for Dickerson on the 40-man, Ramiro Pena was designated for assignment. I assume there will be more moves as the minor league season comes to a close.

Recap: Sox hang on for a 7-6 win in Minnesota

First things first: I didn't watch this game. I was too busy watching the Bruins be lousy and lose to Washington in overtime. (I predicted the outcome, which only makes me feel about 4% better.) I'm guessing many of you are like me and didn't watch, so let's take a look-see through the box score and play by play to see what we missed. They got out to an early lead...

Recap: Rangers rout Sox 18-3

Well that got ugly in a hurry. Jon Lester -- he who couldn't get any run support in his first two outings -- couldn't find the strike zone against Texas and put the Red Sox in a hole they couldn't climb out of. Lester surrendered seven runs on eight hits and four walks in two-plus innings. He was simply awful. Things didn't get any better. While Scott Atchison pieced...

All this talk about Dan Bard during Spring Training and then during the first 4 games of the season and he finally got his chance to make his first start tonight.  Many people wanted Bard to be pulled from the rotation and to take over as closer since Bailey is on the DL and Aceves has struggled out of the gate.  However, the ownership seems sold on giving Bard a shot in the rotation...
