It's official - Lofton to the Tribe for Max Ramirez.Could this open up a Dotel for Francisco trade to bolster the back end of the bullpen, as Benny ceratainly seems like the odd man out in the OF mix? Is there more coming?Don't touch that dial.
Nice job, PC. Beat me to it...
Francisco is an obvious trade candidate, but what about Trot Nixon? Gutierrez has played well enough that he might take over RF full time. That would leave Michaels, Nixon, Francisco, and Lofton to play left. Really only need two of them.

He needs to come to bat with this song playing at the Jake.In my previous post I meant bumping Garko to 5th and Pronk to 6th. But this adds a new wrinkle. Where do you bat Kenny? There are so many options now...What a great way to start the weekend!
when is the wild card leading team significantly upgrading their offense with a .300 hitting OF with speed not front page news at the WWL? when that team is not named the yankees.
Aren't you still at work Cy?very excited...i'd flirt with the idea of leading him off...grady batting 3rd? Its a question that wedgie has to be lovin finding an answer too
work, schmerk....we got lofton today! theoretically, i should never have to see trot bat in the late innings again!
Lee to Buffalo, Mujica to Cleveland.Laffey to start August 5th to replace Lee in the rotation. Indians have next Monday off to set up their rotation accordingly.Francisco sent to Buffalo to make room for Kenny on the 25-man.Luna DFA'd off the 40-man to make room for Lofton.
I've been grinning since Kenny's standing O in the 1st. Loved Shapiro in the booth during the 3rd.If anyone gets their hands on an extra Hammy talking bobble head tomorrow, I'd kill for one in my office for all the Sox fans I gotta deal with.What a great way to get over Lee and yesterday's loss.
Was at the game yesterday and the place was electric. I only hope they start to cheer like that for the other 24 guys on the roster.Great move.
Got a question slightly related to the Dotel rumours I haven't found answered anywhere.Why not just call up Mike Koplove? He's got the track record they're looking for. He's healthy (and hey, Dotel came back from an injury recently, too, so that can't be held against him). He's pitching well. He did well in his brief call-up earlier in the season. Is there something I don't know about him? He seems to be the perfect in-house answer. Look at what he did with the D-Backs!
Anyone else out there who is not comfortable with a closer with an ERA over 5? I know he's got a lot of saves and all, but he doesn't seem to intimidate good teams. Why won't they give the Rockhead a shot? Of the top 25 save leaders in baseball, he is THE ONLY ONE with an ERA over 5.00...His WHIP of 1.40 ranks him 115th among AL pitchers this year. I don't want this SOB closing games in the playoffs!!
