    7-70? I could get a couple of hits by accident, and I'm 67!

    If not for the rules specifying DH for the pitcher, I honestly believe Mauer should have batted for PFlo, and Nolasco should be the one taking hacks.

    Not a bad idea, but it really makes management look bad to do that. Also, what if Nolasco gets hurt running the bases?...Hey! What if Nolasco gets hurt running the bases!

    Looking like BP today for the Angels so far.

    You know, I was thinking Nolasco didn't look too good until I read this:





    At least he hasn't had a blowout inning yet.

    So far 7 of the 9 batters for the Angels have at least one hit....in the 3rd inning.

    Could we send Nolasco to the minors? I am ok with exposing him and his contract to waivers at this point. I someone wants to claim him, That would be ok and we can bring someone up that deserves to be here. I see we demoted Pino so that means someone else will pitch in his place but it is time to do something with Nolasco so he can get straightened out. It almost seems like he is content with loosing now he has the big payday from his contract.

    You know what. The game is already kind of lost and our bull pen is overused. Let him there earn his money until his arm falls off. What to do with this guy? Performance wise, he is the least deserving of his spot. And we have him with a 4 year contract.

    60-Day DL, May and Meyer added to the rotation, obviously

    I wonder what kind of scouting/research the Twins did on Nolasco before giving him that contract. Did they just look at his ERA from last season and say "We gotta get this guy!"?

    The sucky thing about Nolasco is they were negotiating with other pitchers

    Should have upped there offer on Ervin Santana and or Matt Garza and dumped the dance with Nolasco. And then signing Pelfrey when you knew his injury history and that is velocity was down at the end of last year. Pelfrey and Nolasco both look like sunk cost at this point in time.
    They dodged a bullet in not signing Arroyo but Nolasco may be the contract that finally sinks TR and get's him relieved of his GM roll.
    Nolasco so far looks like an abject failure of scouting and decision making by the GM.

    Ryan isn't leaving on any terms but his own.

    Danny Santana MRI is back... he has a bone bruise and is day to day. No damage to ligaments.
    You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

    How did Santana get a bone bruise on his left knee last night?

    Didn't it have to be there and then aggravated or something?

    Anybody remember what happened in the field -- did he do that just rounding first?

    Huh?

    Or was the "left knee" thing just Dick talking through his hat?

    I heard it on the radio, so we can't blame Dick for any misinformation.

    I was watching last night, he rounded first and you could see he felt it a few steps later, or he stopped running on it a few steps later. I couldn't tell you how it happened exactly.

    Yeah... he pulled up lame halfway between first and second. He looked fine going to first.

    Maybe someone in the medical field can explain how one can get a bone bruise from running. I thought they were caused by contusions, like he had been hit by a pitch in the leg or something.
