    update: Carl Crawford was not named as a reserve for the All-Star game, nor was he one of the five candidates for the final roster spot. The five candidates are Travis Hafner, Ramon Hernandez, Francisco Liriano, A.J. Pierzynski, and Justin Verlander. Frankly, Crawford would have struggled in a vote with […]

    Washington 6, Devil Rays 2. That was ugly…No that was real ugly, and by real ugly we mean Don Mossi ugly…We are on record as saying that we liked the hiring of Joe Maddon. While he does things a bit unorthodox at times, we believe he is a good manager […]
