Frater:

But like I told Double, we don't know if any of those guys were actually asked for. Who knows for sure.

Different organizations have different standards on what they see and what they want. Buehrle was already on the big club by the trade deadline for example, and so was Garland, so they might not have even been a part of the discussions.

Unfortunately we'll never know for sure.

As far as the 90's, Scheuler was always pinning his hopes on guys like Rodney Bolton and Scott Ruffcorn.

Agreed, and that was the problem!

Incredible that three of our opening day starting five have gone to the DL and none of them are named Peavy or Sale. This is one of the weirdest seasons I have ever seen.

We may not know for sure, but considering the two biggest blockbuster trades for pitching at the deadline in 2000 featured a bona fide MLB regular and a 2-time BA Top 10 prospect, I find it hard to believe if the Sox wanted in on any of the action, they wouldn't be forced to give up Garland, Crede, etc. who were at the time two of their biggest prospects.

I'm just saying, I think in this case, history has vindicated Schueler's decision.

Looks like no Youk tonight. Tight hammy. Hopefully nothing lingers . . .

Morel seems to be taking a really good attitude into his re-hab. Great to hear him talk about his support of Youkilis and how he'll fill any role that helps the team down the road, even if it's just a late inning pinch-runner or defensive replacement with Youkilis going to 1B.

Some would say Wells did the same for us, but he did help us win a World Championship later on.

Robin said Friday that Floyd is feeling fine. He'll throw again tomorrow and if there are no issues he could go Monday or Tuesday.

AJ is day to day, with an oblique strain.

Has AJ ever been on the DL during his years with the Sox? His durability is simply amazing.

I wouldn't mind if the Sox were able to pick up a backup catcher by the deadline to give AJ a little more rest than he's getting now with Flowers as his backup.

Yeah, he broke his wrist last year after taking a beanball from Bruce Chen. Missed 16 games.

I can't remember anything otherwise. His durability is amazing. He's never played in fewer than 128 games since joining the Sox. Simply incredible.

Lip that 2000 team was a tinker toy team. It did as well as it reasonably could have. And the reality is it didn't hit in the playoffs and to blame pitching when 4 runs doesn't win a game is well living in dreamland...sure 4 runs can and does win many games in MLB - so does 2 runs. But it's not enough. And honestly, but for the grace of the silly Brewers giving us Eldred and Valentin for nothing (actually, they took a negative player off of our hands), we wouldn't have contended. Still, it had 4 quality hitters (Frank, PK, Lee, Durham, Ordonez) and we patched up enough pitching (and the pen was pretty good) to take the division. Can you imagine if we had traded MB?

Unless you have a farm replete with prospects, it's a mistake to empty out what few prospects you have to patch up holes with veterans. That's a far cry from constantly selling all your vets FOR prospects - something we shouldn't do either (and don't do).
But we have to play next year and the next. And these vets are going to be rolling off contracts and we'll need some fillers.
Williams has done a good job with the pitching this year, finding us a bunch of 5th starter types (or at least guys who pitch like them). Axe has generally pitched better than Humber since the perfect game.
But what we really need, as everyone knows, is Danks back.

Daryl Van Schouwen

Ventura on Pierzynski oblique: He could probably play through it ... don't want him to re-injure it and end up on DL. Looking at Friday.

Danks was 'sore and tight' after throwing (20) off mound Tuesday for first time in weeks. Normal soreness, trainer Herm assured him.

"Last couple of days have been an improvement, something I've needed. Hopefully we won't backtrack from there.''

"Hopefully will be back out there before the year is over helping this ballclub.''

Youk twisted his ankle in the 4th rounding first.
