Soriano

    My boy deserves his own thread.

    Nats just sent ROBERT FICK up to hit for Soriano in the fifth with none out and man on first.  They're down 11-1. So maybe that's it.

    But.

    I'm thinking this is not a good sign for someone who doesn't want to see his boy traded.  Did the trigger just get pulled and Frank get a call that said, "Get him out of there?"

    Fick for Soriano ain't right under normal circumstances. He grounded into a double play, by the way.

    I'm fairly certain I'm going to wake up and Soriano is going to be gone.
     
  2. Nah. It's 11-1, and they probably took him out as a precaution that he doesn't get hurt in a meaningless situation, thus jeopardizing his trade value.

    I hope some of that haul can fucking pitch. Now.

    Roy Corcoran feeding gas to the Dodgers' fire makes me miss Stanton already.

    Well, maybe I got "heart sink" too soon. Frankie also pulled Johnson, Zimmerman and Kearns.

    Now THAT would be a hell of a trade.

    They trade Zimmerman and I'm going out the window.

    Stanton was more of a slow burn, eh?

    That was my first thought when I read the post, too. Red Sox emptied their bench down a measly 8-2 against the Angels tonight.

    I would love to see him in the Mets' Orange and Blue. David Wright needs a solid backup.  :D ;D 8) :p

    Sorry Moddy, the Expos' curse couldn't be neutered merely by moving 500 miles to the south.

    No matter how well they were going, all it took was a trip to the West Coast to mess it all up. ;D

    Hell, if you do that, might as well get B.J. and Justin Upton and Justin Verlander and move the Mets to Norfolk. Y'all can have the Tides.
