On my Giants blog of choice, all of the guys are saying, "Man, Pagan is hot," and all of the girls and women are saying, "Yes, he is!" Hahaha.

Good grief, these balls and strikes calls by these umpires suck. I don't even like Adam Jones but he was simply screwed over by that ump. Ball was clearly outside and a bit low... but definitely, clearly outside. Ugh.

Chapman Wants to Always Be Closing

http://espn.go.com/mlb/spring2013/st...ds-wants-close

Quote:
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Aroldis Chapman doesn't like the uncertainty that has come with being taken out of the closer role and thrust into the mix for a job in the Reds' rotation.

So he decided to make his preference known Saturday: He wants to close.

His manager, Dusty Baker, wants to hear that directly from Chapman before he decides whether the left-hander will be the Reds' fifth starter or their finisher.

Chapman with the 100 mph fastball saved 38 games for the Reds in 2012. On Saturday, he made his second start of spring training and fourth overall appearance, including a minor league game on March 11.

He allowed a run and two hits with three walks and two strikeouts in four innings as the Reds won a split squad game over the San Francisco Giants, 7-6.

Mark Teixeira may end up missing the entire 2013 season altogether due to worse-than-reported injury

http://espn.go.com/new-york/mlb/stor...jury-do-tendon

Quote:
TAMPA, Fla. — The injury that will keep New York Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira out of the lineup until May at the earliest is not a wrist strain, as originally reported, but a partially torn tendon sheath that could potentially require season-ending surgery.

As of now, the Yankees are still expecting Teixeira to heal without needing an operation and to rejoin the club after about 8-10 weeks of healing time.

But Teixeira, who arrived at spring camp Sunday morning with his right wrist in a cast-like splint and will rehab there for the rest of the spring, raised the possibility that his absence could be longer than that.

“This is one of those things I can’t come back too early,‘’ he said. "We saw last season when I tried to play too early [with a calf injury] what happened. If I try to play too early from this we could miss the whole season, and we don’t want that. I don’t know if it’s the beginning of May, the end of May, the beginning of June, I don’t know when it is but we got a whole bunch of season left and the time that really matters is the playoffs.‘’

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman was surprised to hear Teixeira say the injury was to the tendon sheath, a covering that keeps the wrist tendon in place, rather than to the tendon itself. He called Yankees team doctor Chris Ahmad, who told him the injury was a partially torn tendon sheath…’’

re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

Neither news surprises me. We've heard from Chapman before about he's less than pleased to be a starter. Whether he's a starter or the closer, he'll probably be good to awesome. If he's the closer, that just makes their bullpen that much better. I do wonder if Chapman is aware that relievers, closers in particular, break down faster than starters.

As for Tex, your wrist popping can never be good. It's either bad or catastrophic.

re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

Jason Cohen at New York Yankees SB Nation blog "Pinstriped Bible" speculates about what the Yankees may do about this, if Teixiera is indeed going to be missing more time than six or so weeks of the season... Pay attention, MrMister...

http://www.pinstripedbible.com/2013/...-needs-surgery

Quote:
The Yankees' best bet is to try and trade for the Rangers' Mike Olt. He can play third base and Youkilis can move over to first. The Rangers have been interested in Joba Chamberlain and Olt has really no place to play with Adrian Beltre entrenched at third base. The Rangers have traded away good prospects for a reliever before (Mike Adams), so if they want Chamberlain (and probably a good-to-decent prospect or two) it could be more possible than people would believe. Olt would not only help in 2013, but could be a longterm solution at third base, even though Alex Rodriguez is on the team. A-Rod will need more and more time at DH, so there will be minimal conflict of playing time. Olt is still only 24, so he has plenty of time to play.
If I'm Jon Daniels, I want a lot more than Joba Chamberlain for Mike Olt. Tyler Austin and Ty Hensley would be who I'd want in a deal for Olt if I'm Daniels/Rangers. Make the Yankees pay premium prices for what they need right now.
