So how ’bout that Matty DeSalvo character? Mighty indeed.

But man, come on ump!

Kei Igawa to Single-A? Daaaaaaaaaaaaamn.

Triple-A Scanton (2-1 win over Pawtucket)
Chris Basak: 1 for 4, 1 CS
Eric Duncan: 1 for 3, 1 BB
Shelley Duncan: 0 for 0, 1 R, 3 BB – I believe that 0 for 0 is a DotF first…
Bronson Sardinha: 1 for 3, 1 R, 1 HR, 2 RBI
rest of lineup: 0 for 17, 6 K
Tyler Clippard: 7 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 9 K – 2 strong starts in a row…

Double-A Trenton (4-1 loss to Portland)
Carlos Mendoza: 1 for 3, 1 BB
Jamal Strong: 1 for 4, 1 2B, 2 K, 1 E (fielding) – hitting a robust .238-.333-.286-.619 this year…
Shawn Garrett: 1 for 4, 1 E (fielding)
PJ Pillitere: 1 for 3, 1 BB – he’d be a better backup than Nieves right now…I’m serious
Justin Christian: 1 for 4, 1 K
Alan Horne: 7 IP, 6 H, 3 R, 2 ER, 0 BB, 8 K, 9-4 GB/FB – a 41-7 K/BB ratio was unthinkable for him at this point last year, it’s great that he’s gotten his control together

High-A Tampa (9-2 loss to Daytona)
Reegie Corona: 0 for 5, 2 K
Tim Battle: 1 for 5, 1 R, 1 K
Jose Tabata: 3 for 4, 1 2B – back to playing the field…
Juan Miranda: 2 for 4, 1 RBI – 5 for 12, 1 2B, 2 3B, 2 RBI since I stopped calling him “Mr. Miranda”…
Colin Curtis: 1 for 3, 1 BB
Joba Chamberlain: 4 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 5 K – welcome back big guy (51-3 career K/BB ratio)…
Anthony Claggett: 1 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 1 K – 12 IP, 18 H, 8 ER, 4 BB, 8 K in last 7 outings…

Low-A Charleston had a scheduled off day.

I don’t know about you, but ragging on Red Sox prospects is one of my favorite past times…

Dan Bard: 13.1 IP, 21 H, 23 R, 15 ER, 22 BB, 9 K – add injury to insult…
Bryce Cox: 12.1 IP, 12 H, 10 R, 7 ER, 9 BB, 3 K – those remade mechanics sure are helping…
Craig Hansen: 10 IP, 15 H, 12 R, 8 ER, 9 BB, 12 K – but hey, Gammons said he’ll be great, so what do the factual numbers matter?
George Kottaras: .211-.341-.352-.693
Jed Lowrie: .181-.302-.264-.566
Justin Masterson: 28 IP, 45 H, 25 R, 20 ER, 11 BB, 19 K – WHIP of 2.00? sheesh…
Jason Place: .175-.243-.361-.604

Need I even mention Dustin Pedroia? Yeah…

Dustin Pedroia: .239-.354-.328-.682 – too bad PECOTA isn’t real life, huh?

    Once again the bullpen blows a lead and the Yanks at home split a four game series with Seattle after having a lead in every game. Whats worse is the the general lackadaisical attitude of the team. A runner is out at second yet he’s called safe, does anyone argue, no. Where’s the fire, why didn’t Cano get in the umpires face? Where was Mattingly?
    On TV you could see he was out as the play was made. I thought I must have missed something but when I saw the replay… . This team is half asleep, what’s with Abreu, he’s become the Matty Alou of the 21st Century.

    Torre does not have this team’s attention that has been clear for several year’s, he needs to go.

    That Blind Umpire Jerry Davis has Website.

    If anybody care to contact the guy – or at least his sporting goods store – there is the contact info and the website.

    “Torre does not have this team’s attention that has been clear for several year’s, he needs to go.”

    No Torre, no Rocket.

    if Red Sox start to get injury bug like Yankees, it’s interesting who will they call up from minor

  • bv

    Terrible Call by Umpire. Here’s a picture of that Play. Wtf was He’s looking at

  • Eric Schultz

    He must have thought Bloomquist was about 8 feet tall.

    So does Clippard get a little respite from your constant doomsday predictions about his imminent breakdown? Perhaps a couple more games?

  • Mike A.

    I don’t think Clippard will break down, I just think he’ll suck when he hits the show. A good – okay great – half season in Double-A is hardly enough to change my mind, let alone 2 pretty good Triple-A starts.

  • Sam

    I guess the question would be based on what? Certainly not numbers: Clippard has very good to great numbers in all his trips to the minors, not just his AA and AAA as you seem to suggest. I have been listening to this prediction of Clippard sucking whenever he makes a jump to the next level. So far, he has defied all these predictions. Can that buy the guy at least a benefit of doubt? I do respect your opinion, but I certainly don’t get this paranoia about Clippard. Do you have any comparable to him that sucked badly in the majors?

    edwar ramirez has ridiculas so stats for treton what do you know of him?
