It's gonna take a while for the Red Sox to get back to .500 with Dice-K and Shalackey in this rotation.

They still have 16 more tilts with the Yanks, so that should help get them back on track.

Hope you don't mind the Mark Prior watch, but here's a new blurb:

Quote:
Right-hander Mark Prior was the feel good story of Spring Training this year, striking out a dozen batters and allowing just one run in 8.2 innings. He was clearly a shell of his former self, but his stuff was good enough to get guys out. Baseball America’s Jim Callis passed along an updated scouting report on the former phenom in this week’s Ask BA: “Prior’s fastball usually ran from 87-91 mph, his breaking ball and changeup were nothing special, and neither was his control (five walks) … Prior will need more fastball and a quality second pitch if he’s going to help New York in a relief role later in the year. I’m rooting for him, but I’ll believe it when I see it.”

The Yankees have until mid-June before Prior’s opt-out clause becomes an issue, so there’s no rush to make a decision. He recently appeared in back-to-back games for High-A Tampa and came out of that okay, but he’s obviously got a long, long way to go.

Well, if Hughes doesn't get it together, Prior is a possible option. The Yanks are hoping that a tweek in Hughes' delivery could be the solution to his "velocity" problems.

Prior is strictly a reliever now. His arm would likely fall off were he to start again.

I doubt he will help the major league club soon, I'm just rooting for him to play again.

Alexei Ramirez. Thank you. Smooth as fuck at shortstop, swings like a drunk slow-pitch softball player at the plate. I am so glad his parents had sex that one night out in that sweaty tobacco field.

They should not allow dice-noKs to make another start. He zapped all momentum they were building after the Yankee series.

Agreed, but they'll give him a few more chances.

And after that, they'll feel obligated to go to Wakefield.

And after that, once Wakefield stinks it up a bit, they'll finally go to Aceves, who should have been the 5th starter coming out of spring training but obviously wasn't going to be...
