Nelson Figueroa battled bravely – got to give him that. It took him 35 pitches to get through the first inning – gave up an infield single on the first pitch to Jose Reyes, who went to second on a passed ball which bounced in the dirt before reaching Castro. (Interesting that that was only the 4th passed ball assigned to Castro – he isn’t the best pitch blocker, and a few other “wild pitches” in my opinon, should have been more accurately called passed balls. But I digress…) Anyway, Reyes scored an unearned run on a single up the middle. Figgy gave up 2 walks, but Kd Wright and Frenchy to escape from the inning with only 1 run.

I know that done deals can be announced later, but Fast Eddie has turned down multiple offers for the ol Wifebeater and for Brandon Lyon (so much for he can’t be moved) and for Pence.

So far it is just Roy and Lance, who was traded for Mark Melancon, a AAA pitcher, who apparently Fast Eddie thinks is the reincarnation of Brad Lidge 04/08 – not sure why he thinks that seeing as how if he is this closer material NOW, why on earth the Yankees didn’t call him up to be The Bridge To The Mariano (now that Joba has failed and they have no obvious 8th inning nail it down guy) and 21 year old Jimmy Paredes, an A-ball second baseman/SS.

Let’s take a look:

At this particular second, it’s still a rumor – Berkman has supposedly OKd a trade to the Yanks if they DON’T pick up his option.

No idea what we’re gonna get back, but I’d bet it’s nothing good.

I hear tell that apparently, when he was trying to trade Roy-O, Fast Eddie told teams that they would have to pick up ALL of Roy’s contract – and he maneuvered it so that the Phils would be able to snag Roy. The other teams are NOT real too happy.

GEE, what a surprise.
