Pickoff Moves

Sticks Need To Save Frankie

From our friends the Kamenetzky's, a piece about the Angels and the peculiarities that force Mike Scioscia to call in K-Rod in the ninth for some rather gaudy save totals. Here's Mike:
“I think we’ve seen the worst side. After the first three or four weeks of the season until maybe the last 20 games, our offense was probably at its most ineffective stage that we’vesen in a while here. Hopefully we’ve turned a corner on that. We were totally dependent on manufacturing runs and the situational game because we wren’t driving the ball and nobody was hitting for, I want to say, at least 50 or 60 games. Now we have the potential to do the things we saw in Spring Training, when we projected what our offense could do. It’s an offense, a lineup, that can get deep. I think we can score in a lot of ways.”

Another French Kiss For Juan Pierre

Yawn or throw tomatoes? I'm not sure which should be the right reaction to Kevin Baxter's strange piece in the Times decrying Matt Kemp's failure to steal bags as a leadoff man, but whatever. What I really want to know, though, is this: for all the love shed on how gritty and how much of a gamer Juan Pierre supposedly is, why is it that his shortcomings hardly ever seem to make it to the fore?

Rob:

Washburn is under contract through the 2009 season. He's owed ~$14 million for the rest of this season and all of 2009.
 
Ah, I read the Rotoworld blurb as meaning he was a free agent at the end of the year. Fixed.
