Ryan in hospital; reason not given

Hall of Fame pitcher Nolan Ryan, 59, checked into Round Rock (Texas) Medical Center on Friday for treatment of recurring symptoms from a pre-existing medical condition, his son Reid said.
Reid declined to specify the condition, but said it was discovered when his father had double-bypass heart surgery in 2000.
“This is something I’ve lived with for the last seven years,” Nolan said in a statement.
His son said it was not an emergency.
“He takes medication for it,” Reid said. “From time to time, he has episodes that require him to get checked out when he has pain or something. He’s feeling good. This is more about taking precautions.”
Ryan struck out 5,714 and pitched seven no-hitters — both major league records — in 27 years with the New York Mets, California Angels, Houston Astros and Texas Rangers. He retired in 1993 and was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1999.
Ryan is a majority owner of the Class AAA Round Rock Express and Class AA Corpus Christi Hooks, both affiliates of the Astros.

ESPN just reported that the Red Sox and Rockies are having serious talks about the Red Sox acquiring Todd Helton. I believe I just heard that Helton is still owed 90 miillion.

His numbers have gone down the past 2 years, and that is the weaker NL. But he can be dangerous. Sox need to address their bullpen first I think..
Man, the AL east is a beast this year!

The Sox aren't interested in big HR and RBI numbers.... they want someone to take on an Abreu like role for them.... not necessarily a huge masher but someone who just contributes to the wear and tear on opposing pitchers. Helton averages around 4 pitches per at bat and has had a OBP over .400 virtually his whole career. Who knows, maybe playing in a high tension, contending atmosphere will kick in a second wind of youthfullness in him. It also looks like the Sox will try to average it so they will only pay him within the neighborhood of 8-10 million and give up Lowell, Tavarez and maybe Delcarmen or Hansen. Not a bad deal, I would say.

Some Good News

HOUSTON -- Hall of Fame pitcher Nolan Ryan was expected to leave a Houston hospital Saturday after medical tests for an undisclosed ailment came back normal, his son said.

The 59-year-old strikeout king was admitted Friday in Round Rock for treatment of recurring symptoms of an existing medical condition. He was transferred to Houston for further evaluation, but Reid Ryan said his father was "feeling great."

"All his tests have come out great," Reid Ryan said. "There's nothing to keep him at the hospital."

Reid Ryan declined to specify the condition but said it was discovered when his father had double-bypass heart surgery in 2000.

Ryan is still expected to participate in next week's Nolan Ryan Elite Pitching Camp, his son said. The camp starts Monday in Houston.

Not a bad deal to get Helton, but that's not giving up too much you think 3 for 1? Your weakening your other corner, with who in the wings? You have a 31 year old 3B in AAA, who isn't very good. And Lowell is so solid. I'm asking more than stating.

Excellent News! BB King and Ryan both out of Hospital

Youkilis would take over 3B duties primarily (he's 27)..... I've read a little more about the deal and, of course, this is all speculation but the Sox aren't willing to pull the trigger unless everything is perfectly in place. The Rockies are way more willing to deal than the Sox are. Another name that has been mentioned instead of Hansen and Delcarmen is Matt Clement..... That i don't see happening though b/c Clement is not due back until late this year and the Sox now have a no-trade policy on their young pitching. Another deal breaker is that this would probably put the Sox over the luxury tax limit.......

I heard Matt Clement as part of the deal too. I think If Rockies take him it is a done deal.

Over the cap for Luxury tax! They went this far might as well go all in

That is why they are adding more seats

News flash? Hardly ...

Clemens still undecided about future
By KRISTIE RIEKEN, AP Sports Writer
January 29, 2007

HOUSTON (AP) -- Roger Clemens was on the mound in Astros gear Monday, still undecided about whether he'll pitch for Houston or any other major league team this season.

The 44-year-old right-hander threw almost an hour of batting practice during the club's pitching and hitting camp at Minute Maid Park. He mostly faced minor leaguers, including his son Koby.

When asked to handicap the odds that he'll return for another season, Clemens replied: "I'm not even interested in playing right now -- that's my handicap for you. Other than that, my golf handicap needs to come down."


The article goes on the Sox, Yankees, Astros and Rangers are suitors.

Oh yeah, don't expect him until May or June.


It could even be July like last year. poster's comment

I think Boston is a longshot...

His buddy Andy is back in NY , and in Houston he gets to be home.

I dont see what Boston has to offer him.

Boston will offer just as much $$ as anyone, so that would be a non-issue. They will score runs, which is about the only thing missing for him in Houston. He'll also get the chance at the storybook ending that ONLY Boston can offer, and the chance to displace Cy Young from the record books. He already has a ring from NY, something he may want another shot at in Boston. Granted, NY has Andy P and of course the promise of Mariano closing out his games (although one has to wonder how much longer that 37 year old window will be open) and they too will score runs, but my point is it's not like Boston isn't a viable option...although I suspect if he pitches again this season (and I think he will) it will be back in Houston. Will his son get a sniff of the majors this season? That could be what puts it over the edge for him , the chance to pitch to his son.

I think Boston is a longshot but indeed viable to "end it where it began".
Texas is an interesting longshot - he may get some of the Houston "perks" there.

Koby may get a cup of coffee in September, at best. Koby has said that the biggest thrill of his life was playing with his dad last year during his pre- ... ooops ... mid-season tune up going from A to AA to AAA to Houston.

I read an article yesterday about Rockies GM saying he wanted something in return. He wasnt just going to give him away. The salary wasnt the issue.

I guess he wasnt bluffing! Now lets see how bad Theo wants him. Is he willing to part with Hansen or Delcarmen or both.

Looks like the Yankees will host the '08 All-Star Game for the last year in the 'House that Ruth built'....

http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/news/story?id=2749252

Fitting, I guess.

What's interesting is that the other times ('39, '60, '77) the Bombers hosted the All-Star Game they won the Series that year.

Hmmmmm...............Yankees in '08. It's a lock!

At the Thurman Munson charity dinner last night..The team was killing him.
They think he has talent, but that he just does not want to work at it anymore...got fat off his contract.
They have zero respect for him, and he has to work to get there respect back...
Moose was brutal torwards him.
Diana Munson makes me cry everytime I see her...almost 30 years later...
