Wang 6H 2BB 6ER in 2/3 of an inning against the Reds
"Ball not moving and staying high," said Wang, who threw two scoreless innings in his first start Saturday.
Should Shelly be playing everyday in the big leagues? Where would you put him?
Hank kindly refused to accept his membership to Red Sox Nation. They still sent him an ID card in which he immediately sent it to matsuifan.com.
"I'm not in pitching shape yet," Mussina said, a bag of ice on his 39-year-old arm. "You don't just jump back out there and have it right back the way it was. It's frustrating, because I felt good enough to throw better than that. I just didn't pitch very well. Full Article
Mussina said he isn't in pitching shape yet. This makes plenty of sense. Mussina hasn't been in pitching shape for over a year now, so I believe him.
On the bright side:
Karstens pitched 2 scoreless
Robinson Cano had 3 hits and 2 RBI's.
Roger: I heard your a man that can get things. Can you get B-12 or Ladicane?
Red: There must be a con like me in every prison in America. I’m the guy who can get it for you. Cigarettes, a bag of reefer if that’s your thing, a bottle of brandy to celebrate your kid’s high school graduation, damn near anything within reason. Yes sir, I’m a regular Sears and Roebuck.
Roger: I should only be here for a couple of days and then I can get back to the Astros to distract their team.
Red: They send you here for life… and that’s exactly what they take.
Roger: What if you can't find B-12?
Red: Get busy living… or get busy dying. That’s god damn right.
Roger: Hey Red, do you believe what Andy and Chuck knoblauch said?
Red: I have no idea to this day what those two Italian ladies were singing about. Truth is, I don't want to know. Some things are best left unsaid. I'd like to think they were singing about something so beautiful, it can't be expressed in words.
Roger: Red, you got to believe me, my wife should be in prison she took HGH, not me and Andy misremembered what I was saying to him.
Red: You're gonna fit right in. Everyone in here is innocent, you know that?

"As long as I can be a benefit to the team," Igawa said.
The Yankees' pitching lineup has been finalized for the first two games. Wednesday's seven-inning intrasquad matchup will showcase Mike Mussina, Darrell Rasner, McCutchen, Albaladejo and Melancon against Jeff Karstens, Steven Jackson, Scott Patterson, Billy Traber and Ross Ohlendorf.
Joba Chamberlain, Ian Kennedy, Phil Hughes, Kei Igawa, Jeffrey Marquez, Alan Horne and Scott Strickland will toe the slab during Thursday's nine-inning game.
Great impressions: One of the pitchers prompting Girardi to take notice early in camp has been Melancon, a right-handed reliever coming off Tommy John elbow reconstruction surgery.
Melancon, who turns 23 on Monday, said that his right arm now feels "as good as it ever has" in his short career, which could bode well for his future progression. Full Spring Report
