High Sox Attempt to Remain Unbeaten

Franklin Morales (5-5, 5.21) takes the ball today for the series finale against the Pittsburgh Pirates.  The Colorado Rockies are 3-5 since the all-star break and 3-0 since the ditched the  low pants style.  Tulo flew to Philadephia to see a specialist about his hip injury.  Did he do that on purpose to squash the trade rumors?  Drew Stubbs and CarGo are both on the bench today with rolled over ankles, Stubbs on the HR swing yesterday and CarGo at home.  Who will be playing outfield if neither Drew nor CarGo can get on the field?  Culberson?

You have to demonize him first. And Tulo is apparently playing right along. I don’t think I’ve ever heard of a player attending another team’s games while he’s on the DL, so if Tulo does pop up in Yankee Stadium you… Read more »

New rule: before a reliever can sport really stupid facial hair he needs to have at least one year with an ERA under 5. See Chad Bettis, mutton chop man, ERA 8.61.
