Wickman to the DL
Paronto activated.

I guess Soriano will get to close.

Hold on to your hats.

Are you kidding? Soriano will be a better stopper than Wickman. And you've got Gonzalez too. If there's anyone who is expendable, it's Wickman.

TBH, I expected Wickman to close for three or four months. This was his last year, regardless. Gonzales and Soriano have to show who the closer will be for 2008 and 2009. Unfortunately, they have to show it in 2007.

Tyler Yates has great stuff. He moves up a slot as well.

24 out of 25 saves before Friday night. Not sure how that is expendable right now. Key words in your post: "will be". Unfortunately, that doesn't buy the Bravos much in '07.

Too bad Huddy didn't get the win last night, even though the team did. He had quite the rough weekend.

That HR really didn't count, he hit into a double play in the AB before that. If he comes through there he wouldn't have had to hit the HR in the 9th.

He's hitting .400 over his last 10 games, but that really doesn't count either, because he's been so off balance at the plate lately.

When I saw his batting average against the Phil's pitcher, I thought, he's due.

I don't mean to jump on the Andruw bashing bandwagon BUT I don't think I have ever seen a major leaguer with 10+ years experience have such an awful flawed swing like I saw from him in this Colorado series. Where's his hitting coach. They need to take about 4 hours on his next off day and make him run a lap for every time he hits the ball to left field.

the scary thing about Andruw - look at the numbers he puts up and he doesn't meet expectations. What exactly were we expecting this guy to be?

I think Andruw does what he wants and doesn't pay much mind to Pendleton. I have heard a couple interviews with Pendleton recently and I get the feeling he is kind of over Andruw a bit. Frustrated with him and that crazy *** falling over, knee on the ground swing. That said he does put up numbers.

I'm not knocking him. He could easily end up with 600+ hrs and 1800+ rbi for his career. Rare air. It is frustrating to watch him with that falling all over the place swing at times though.

I'm saying that Gonzalez and Soriano are both more than capable of converting 24 of 25 saves if given the chance.

I watched Soriano blow doors through the M's minor league system then immediately become the team's best pitcher out of the pen before he blew out his arm 2 years ago. One of the worst trades the M's have made in the past 5 years, and that's saying something.
