Who ****ing cares right now.

    I think it's a little...optomistic...to hope Mauer is going to catch MORE as he ages.

    At this point we need to do everything possible to make Liriano look like a good trade candidate, so yes as crappy as it is to have Butera in the lineup it is a nesecary evil at this point.

    Right or wrong it seems to be working for Fragile Frankie. These next 3 starts will make or break what we can get back for Liriano.

    Mauer isn't being held back from catching because he is banged up, he isn't catching because he doesn't have to.

    That makes sense to me. Why wear him down when the season is already lost.

    I guess that's possible. It's also possible--more likely I'd say--this work load is all he can handle and still be able to stay on the field most days.

    anyone keeping an eye on the minors? Pat Dean has 6 no-hit innings for Ft. Myers currently.

    If Tim McCarver ia good enough for Steve Carlton, Butera is good enough for Liriano. Goofy lefties anyways!

    Just 8 more innings like that and Frankie will have pitched a pretty decent game.

    He is someone who can strike out the side in the first inning, if he is allowed to have his favorite catcher.

    I will never doubt the Latino Pitcher Whisperer again. We need to bring back Silva now.

    The no-hit bid is no more after 6 1/3 no-hit innings.
