And what's wrong with Colome now? 

Good question.  He pitched 1.2 innings last time out on Tuesday, but they had the day off yesterday, so he should have been available.

Kennedy with a 1 pitch fly-out save. If only

they could all be that easy. 

I'll take it.  It all counts the same.

I guess Colome threw 39 pitches on Tuesday, so the speculation was that they wanted to give him an extra day..

 

In both this case and the Robles case it makes sense to give them an extra day.   Mid 30s pitches for a reliever is a ton.

Good time to try Bedrosian in case they deal Robles.

ChiSox offering a preview of things to come?

If Colome gets dealt (judging by this thread, I'm guessing it's more when), then you would have to guess that Bummer would be next in line.  That is how it went tonight obviously.

What would the White Sox expect to get for Colome?  A fringe top 150 prospect?  The minor league system is already loaded to the point where I simply can’t keep up.  They should compete for the division as soon as next year.  Might as well keep Colome in the picture.  Hahn has even said as much.

Burying the lede here though because Bummer is looking like a keeper.

Probably a decent source of 3 ip saves and vulture wins until one of the Dodgers current rotation inevitably gets hurt... in fact we’re way overdue

Josh Smith in for the save for Boston instead of Hembree.  Their announcers can't figure out why it's not Hembree.  Hembree didn't even warm up, so they were wondering if he was sick or something.

 

CM email said Hembree was unavailable with forearm tightness.

Bummer is the guy im watch listing and adding amid any colome rumors

 

that was nice to maybe get a sneak peek into what theyd do post Colome

 

Now we just need a better idea of the SF - DET situations should they deal their closers because i aint got a clue there, jiminez moronta been inconsistent

Just to be clear it wasn't because Remy and O'Brien thought Hembree was some sort of closer guy.  Price blew up early and it became a bullpen game and at that point there were only 2 relievers left in the pen by then.  A vet and a green kid.  So logic would say you don't stick the green kid into a save situation for the first time ever with Boston desperate to right their ship.  So Hembree not going in over the raw kid would lead to this speculation.  And who knows.  Could well be true.

Also this game was one of the weirdest ones ever.  It wasn't Price's night as he had zero control over his fastball and pitched only 1.1 innings giving up 6 runs.  Then the dumpster fire bullpen pitched a shutout the rest of the game while busy filling up the bases to various degrees almost every inning in the process.  Announcer used the term Houdini at one point and that is what it felt like.  Most all the Boston relievers struggled but they somehow squirmed out of letting a run score every inning.  Only the Boston pen could take a nearly 8 inning bullpen shutout and make it look like a disaster in waiting.

On Giles, man, anytime I hear "elbow" I cringe.  Sounds like it's not too bad, but you never know.  Next we hear, he could be going for a "second opinion", then "Dr. James Andrews" and we know where that leads.

 

Biagini might be a good spec add beyond just 10 days.

 

Until you watch him and look at his past

 

Dude is a Fernando Rodney clone. He can look decent and get 2 saves then give up 5 runs, his ERA in the past tells the story

As anyone seen any update on Alvarado? 

I keep asking too.  Been about half a month now he left for some sort of family matters.  Any TB fans here that have better inside info?

I feel bad for the guy at this point. It must be a serious issue if he has been gone this long.

Bruce misplayed that flair badly. Braves hit some tough pitches.

In case you haven’t seen this:

Rays transferred LHP Jose Alvarado from the bereavement list to the restricted list.

The move was necessary because Alvarado has missed more than the maximum seven days while on bereavement. The hope is that he'll return on Monday or Tuesday.

I'm not convinced they trade Colome.  He's under control for another season and in the soft AL Central and with their young talent starting to emerge they have a shot at competing next year.   I'm guessing they would if they are blown away.
