I sign Cameron up for his spring league on Feb 1.

He'll play in 3 leagues again this year.

I thought they would move Joba into rotation possibly, but your thinking he's gone?
hmm, never thought of that. Is he arbitration eligible this year? I'll take him!


I hope I am wrong, as I really like the guy. But I think the Yanks have destroyed this guy mentally.
I can see them maybe giving him another shot at being a starter if thier other youngsters falter in Spring.
But if they do it, they need to take the leash off the guy !! Enough already!

I thought they changed his delivery to save his arm, The way he used to sling shot the ball, his arm was not going to last. He has 4 pitches, and while he cant throw 98-100 mph this way, I think he will develop into a fine starter. You guys have a new pitching coach now, so that might help. I'm sure Buck knows the kid from the yanks farm system, so my O's will take him. Nothing like having a kid with talent who wants to show his old team they made a mistake!

I just had an image of Bob Gibson being brought up now, and the manager coming out to the mound to remove him from a close game due to the "Joba Rules". What type of suspension does one get for beating the s**t out of his manager in front of 50,000 people?

Going by your post(s) I'd say he would have beat him up, twice?

Gibson didn't even like his own catcher coming out to the mound.

I REMEMBER THIS GAME IN 68 LIKE IT WAS YESTERDAY - I THOUGHT HE WAS GOING TO KILL MCCARVER
Gibson in the 1968 World Series

Gibson was the Cards' first pitcher in the '68 World Series against the Tigers on Oct. 2. After he rang up a strikeout late in the game, St. Louis catcher Tim McCarver kept the ball while pointing to the scoreboard.

"Throw the &*@# ball back, will you?" Gibson yelled at his catcher. "C'mon, c'mon, let's go!"

But McCarver was adamant and the Cardinal fans were rocking Busch Stadium with their applause, so the pitcher finally glanced at the scoreboard. It read:

"Gibson's 15 strikeouts in one game ties the all-time World Series record held by Sandy Koufax."

After grudgingly tipping his cap, Gibson put it back on and struck out two more.

It would be interesting to hear some of the old-timers' takes on the game as it is today, esp. pitching wise & the proliferation of middle relievers/setup men, closers from both sides, righty and lefty, & also the vanishing of complete games as a meaningful stat etc

also, their take on conditioning & why things like obliques, ribcage strains, hamate bones, "quadricep" strains, forearm strains, high-ankle sprains, concussions, even strained finger tendons & stuff -- why all of these never existed in their day, because they didn't -- is the emphasis on safety first & the disabled list in baseball today, necessarily good for the "final product" etc.

the chapter "The Game I Love, But" in Don Drysdale's 1990 autobiography said it well, I thought

sorry for butting into this thread -- Manny & Johnny Damon in TB, wow, should be interesting

GM's Lie.
The Red Sox are now poised to pay a luxury tax this year. They had to follow the Yankees lead..and spend money. I believe this makes you the reining Evil Empire!
(Ironically, as it turned out, the Red Sox would have been in better shape for keeping their payroll below the luxury tax threshold in 2011 had they simply structured their deal with Beltre to be a straightforward one-year, $10 million deal. Without the $3 million in luxury tax obligations they face on him for next year, the team would likely be below the $178 million threshold right for 2011 right now. That said, it would be almost impossible for the Sox to view any part of the Beltre deal a bargain given his performance, not to mention the two draft picks the team will get as a result of his departure as regrettable.)
Hey, I'm an Orioles fan. I would love to see my team up it's payroll.
Also, when you consider the population of both cities, The Sox actually pay more in Payroll than the Yankees..per capita.
So all these years of crying about the Yankees spending money to win, and now your doing it?
Are you now happy that your team is spending all this money after crying about it for years about the Yanks?
Interesting, I'd like to know
No one has been a more obnoxiuos fan than Sox fans at Camden BTW

Sounds like sour grapes from a long suffering Orioles fan to me SpyNet. The fact is the Red Sox have spent gobs and gobs of money, especially since the current owners took over. The Sox and yanks are the only two teams to pay the luxury tax in 2010. The The Red Sox been #2 to the yanks during most of the last decade I believe (a couple of those years they may have been #3 or #4 I think), as they will be in 2011. Sox fans have actually been clammoring for them to spend MORE not less, especially since losing the Texiera sweepstakes a few years ago, since we all know they can afford it.

GM's may lie, but Cashman was just giving his assement of the current situation. A friend of mine who is a yankee season ticket holder send me this in an email yesterday: "Just had breakfast with Brian Cashman at the Hard Rock in Times Square. He is an awesome speaker and very honest. He clearly told us that as of today, he thinks the Redsox are much better than the Yankees, but says that he thinks Andy will pitch again this season and that they WILL get another starter. Time will tell."

Sour grapes? No. Frustration...yes. I just want a chance to compete, and was hoping Buck would be more of a GM type than just the mgr. He can only risde the horse they give him
Who knows more about long time suffering than a Red Sox Fan..., you wrote the book!
We all know how "on paper" a team is better works out, don't we?
Let the season play out, but I like the fact they all pick the Sox. They were not the most gracious winners (the fans) as they made the rounds around the country, and visiting stadiums. I attribute it to not knowing how to handle winning...understandable.
Perhaps when they win it all this year they will show a shread of class, we can oly hope.


Top 50 MLB prospects were announced last night. Orioles have a few in there, but you would think they would have more than the Yankees?! How does a team who picks near last every year get so many top prospects? One in the top 10!
Red sox have one...#42
Hate to admit it, but the Yankees have done a hellava job with their farm system!

Andy Pettitte will start the year, or not at all I hear. His feelings are if the Yankees fall short by one game, and he was not there all year, he would never forgive himself.
Heard that on ESPN radio yesterday from Michael Kay
Gotta love that Andy, evernif he's wearing the wrong laundry

Amen to that!
He proved that just spending money doesn't cut it! At least the red Sox finnally spent, and won! cudos to them.
Your Yanks are the finest example of how to do it right.
Finish at the top every year, but yet your 1st round picks have made the Majors the past 15 years or so. Amazing
My O's have been the highest salaried team a couple times and had finished last, and still cant pick right!

Sounds like the Mets


I am happy that we had a few guys in the Top 50... Unfortunately, none are pitchers.
TB has the #2, and a pitcher.
Where the hell do they grow these guys at? They consistantly just find these young stud pitchers. Unreal.
