Had surgery to remove a blood clot today, he's likely done for the year.

Wow. that's too bad. The Tigers definitely didn't need that.

BTW...I'm posting this from my phone as I'm in Salt Lake City on business. This is pretty cool!

Well, I think the Tigers are pretty much done. Bonderman was their second best starter this season, behind Gallaraga.

You never like to see a guy/team go down like this. Hope he comes back healthy next year so we can get him out of baseball the right way, by hitting the crap out of his pitches.

I just got a Dash and have been posting from it on the road. It's great.

Carmona and Westbrook hurt for the Indians.

Bonderman for Detroit.

If the Sox can stay healthy, it is shaping up to be a very fun summer.

Poor guy. Hope he comes back as healthy as ever next year.

Seriously, has there ever been a team hyped like crazy only to come away with disappointing results like this year's Tigers?

Poor kid - Any chance Detroit gets Jason Grilli back?

Um how 'bout the Mariners?

Yeah, the M's have been a huge dissapointment.

Anyways, stick a fork in Detroit. Not that Bonderman is making a run for the Cy Young, but they need some pitching.

Last year's Sox

The 2007 White Sox were hyped? :scratch:

After what Kenny did last off-season, I'm not sure the 07 White Sox were destined to go real far in the eyes of many.

I think he meant last year's Sox, coming off a 90 win season, were expected to do contend, and suffered through a lot of unfortunate injuries.

I never wish any player ill and I hope Bonderman recovers well. I think taking stock of the Tigers, although they still have an offensive lineup, they still have a pileful of problems.

Last year's Sox

Our '07 Sox were not "hyped like crazy." MAYBE the '06 Sox after winning the WS and adding Thome and Vazquez, but we dominated the 1st half that year, so it wasn't disappointing this early. That came around August and afterwards :whiner:

BP picked last year's Sox to go 72-90.

I've never been the kind of guy to capitalize on someone else's misfortunes, but this will certainly help the Sox in the scheme of things. I hope Bonderman comes back solid next year....on another team.

He's got 2 years and 25mm left on his deal after this year. I highly doubt he is moved. And from what I see, he is a #3 or worse - so I don't care if he stays there or not.

BP also said the Sox had a 87% chance of winning the division after they had already clinched in 2005. They''re not a good judge of anything.

Last year's Sox

I thought last year's Sox would be a good team, but hardly anyone was picking them to reach the Series or sweep through the division like this year's Tigers. I did see a fair pick of Wild Card slots, but that was it. Obviously, it didn't turn out that way.

The 2006 Tigers had it in the bag. How they totally blew it and allowed the crappy Cardinals team to win is beyond me. They were clearly the better team but they just choked.

Be glad that Bonderman isn't on the Twins, or else they'd call up some unheard of kid that would shut out the Sox the first 2-3 times he faced them.

Don't be so sure the unheard of kid Detroit will call up won't shut down the Sox. Optimistically, they bring the D-Train back up so he can get ****ing rocked.

He's starting against the Indians tonight. It's an ESPN broadcast.

The more starts they give Dontrelle, the fewer chances Detroit has to catch up with the Sox.

Agreed, now aren't you guys feeling good about not aquiring these two in the offseason:D:

Well, I won't lie, this off-season I would have loved to see the Sox pick up Cabrera. OTOH, I had no desire to see Dontrelle anywhere near the White Sox roster. He sucks.

Kenny said during SoxFest that, the only reason he didn't acquire Cabrera was because Florida wanted him to take Willis.

Kenny said during SoxFest that, the only reason he didn't acquire Cabrera was because Florida wanted him to take Willis.

And to compound that mistake, they signed him to a decent $ longer term extension....You can argue it was a good idea to take him on to get Miguel C - but giving him an extra 2/22 for 2009/10 was a really bad idea.

Funny...Kenny can't spend a buck because all he has is 50 cents. Dombrowsky has no problem spending $1.50, except that he gets about 25 cents worth of value for it? :-)

(I respect DD as a GM - just poking here. He's really a good GM; just made a move that so far has not panned out well. There is a lot of time left before we can draw conclusions on the trade/signings. Much will depend on what Maybin/Miller become. Even the best GMs have a miss or two.)
