  1. Chris Volstad pitched great today. He went 7 innings giving up 6 hits 1 earned run 0 walks and 6 K's. only throwing 82 pitches. While he didnt have his best fastball, his curve was outstanding and kept the Nationals hitters off balance.. 871720[/snapback] Great news ! 871883[/snapback] wo first-round picks hooked up Sunday in a Rookie-level Gulf Coast League game that breezed by in 2:05. Chris Volstad, the Marlins? first pick this June, struck out seven with an earned run in seven innings to edge the Nationals and righthander Clint Everts, the fifth-overall selection in 2002. Volstad ranks fourth in the league with a 2.00 ERA and owns a 26-4 strikeout-walk ratio in 27 innings while Everts is 0-1, 3.38 seven starts spanning 16 innings as he recovers from Tommy John surgery.b/a The 18-year-old right-hander was 1-1 with a 2.00 ERA in 6 starts with the Baby Fish. He struck out 26 batters and walked just 4 in 27 innings of work. Very strong numbers. scouts view
  2. do it... or try and get one of their OF spects 873994[/snapback] you read my mind ramp(nice name ) included Anderson... take it and run...but I'm sure the Marlins would have to add something like a Josh Wilson or Eric Reed
  3. The bottomline is if the Red Sox want AJ there going to have to overpay Sanchez and Arroyo is not going to make the Marlins jump to the phone and yes we'll take it. Sanchez and either Lester/ Papelbon with Arroyo or Sanchez and Ramirez. They have to blow the Marlins Soxes off :lol ...you get what I'm saying by the way Contreras beat Arroyo yesterday
  4. Out of the fad 5 Marceaux has struggled the most after his first start he's gone down hill, but today he final pitch great 5IN 3H 0ER 1K nice
  5. 1-2 1R 2BB with 4RBI what a game by Hermida pitching is Adam Bostick II 6IN 2H 2BB 9K great game by Bostick :thumbup but the game MVP goes to Chris Bass 3-3 2HR 3RBI
  6. Sun-Sentinal Marlins can't seem to land piece to help 'pen Two years ago, key cogs in a championship run for the Marlins seemed to fall out of the sky. Ugueth Urbina, Chad Fox, Lenny Harris, Jeff Conine. Not so, this year. Particularly in their search for bullpen help, the Marlins have been stymied at every turn. Steve Karsay. Danny Graves. Mike Stanton. Craig Hansen. Urbina again. Of all their failed flirtations, the one that could have had the biggest impact might have been Rockies left-hander Brian Fuentes. When the Marlins first asked about him this year, he was a low-cost closer on a bad team. But once Fuentes was named the Rockies' only All-Star, he was elevated to untouchable status. "I'd heard there were some rumors that Florida was interested and for whatever reason it didn't pan out," Fuentes said. "That's a great team and would be a great team to play for. I really have no say being an under three-year guy [in service time]." Because Fuentes is making $328,000 this season, the Rockies have little incentive to trade him. He will become eligible for salary arbitration this winter and could earn a raise into the $1.5 million range, but even then will rank as one of baseball's best bargains. "I had a good feeling knowing I was kind of an attractive player as far as being effective and cost efficient," Fuentes said. "I figured I was kind of a hot commodity in that aspect. "The Rockies figured I was more of an asset to them than what they were going to receive, so I'm still a Rockie." And he's headed for a fourth straight losing season after a 10-game cameo with the 116-win Mariners of 2001. Fuentes, a 25th-round draft pick of Seattle in 1995, was left off the playoff roster that year, then traded that winter. Marlins General Manager Admin Beinfest and personnel chief Dan Jennings were with the Mariners when Fuentes began his pro career, and Marlins Assistant GM Michael Hill was with him in Colorado. So the Marlins are likely to make another push for Fuentes at some point. Ask Fuentes how much he wants to experience the pressure of a pennant race, and his face lights up. "Oh, it would be a load of fun," Fuentes said. "I've been in the playoffs twice in the minor leagues and won championships there. From what I hear it's an experience [in the majors]."
  7. Boston wants AJ...well, "Boston really, really is attempting to do something," one baseball source said. "It's hard getting Florida engaged for whatever reason." One way to pique the Marlins' interest may be to discuss shortstop Hanley Ramirez, the Red Sox's top prospect. The Red Sox don't have a problem parting with pitcher Bronson Arroyo for Burnett, but Ramirez is considered all but untouchable. and I told agree. The Marlins have a surplus of young arms down on the farm, true not many match Sanchez ceiling, but what the Marlins are missing is that can't miss position player(other than Hermida). Hanley would do that for the fish, and it would give the Marlins a kid they could plug in there next season when Alex is gone. Sun-Sentinal
  8. I second that the Angels deal(if true) is a best of all deals, it would help you today and tommorrow
  9. Let's see where we are. The WSox want to trade us McCarthy and Contreras. We want McCarthy and Marte. (Would we settle for McCarthy, Contreras and Brian Anderson?) The Red Sox want to trade us Wade Miller and Anibel Sanchez. We want Bronson Arroyo and Hanley Ramirez. (The deal on the table seems to be Arroyo/Sanchez. Would both sides accept Wade Miller/Hanley Ramirez? I doubt the Sox would.) I see a match here. McCarthy/Marte or Arroyo/Sanchez. The Arroyo deal gives us a far better chance to win this season unless we also have a way to get someone such as Mark Redman in as a 5th starter. 872735[/snapback] comparing the two deals I've give the White Sox deal the best, the better player in the long run though will be Sanchez. The better quantity is the White Sox for the NOW, the better deal for later is the Red Sox. I would like to see Anderson included in that White Sox deal, maybe Beinfest can throw in a Eric Reed to get that kid.
  10. Background: Sanchez pitched well for two seasons in the Rookie-level Venezuelan Summer League, then needed elbow surgery to transpose a nerve. After missing all of 2003, he came back in a huge way, leading the New York-Penn League in ERA and strikeouts and ranking as the circuit's top pitching prospect. Strengths: Sanchez succeeded in Venezuela when he worked at 88-90 mph, and he dominated in 2004 when his velocity jumped to the mid-90s. His fastball is also notable for its movement and his ability to command it to both sides of the plate. Sanchez also has one of the better curveballs in the system, and his changeup shows flashes of becoming a plus pitch. Weaknesses: With an electric arm and pitching savvy, Sanchez just needs more innings and continued good health. His curveball and changeup aren't totally reliable yet, but should improve as he gains more experience. He's not physically dominating, but he generates velocity with arm speed rather than extra effort. The Future: Sanchez will move to full-season ball for the first time in 2005, pitching at Boston's new low Class A Capital City affiliate. He might not need much more than two more seasons in the minors. from B/A he's there best pitching prospect, passing up those that were in front of him at the begin of the year. Also a BIG plus he's Venezuelan with Miggy and Alex on the team. The kid is a year away, he's dominated HIGH single A and now doing the same in AA. stats for the year so far in AA he's gone 14.2IN 9H 2ER 6BB 22K, this after going 78IN 53H 21ER 24BB 95K with a 2.40ERA in high Single A
  11. we should have just taken the f'ing risk 872589[/snapback] Borass would have held him out all year .
  12. Red Sox officials have spent a fair amount of time pumping up Sanchez of late, behavior that is always curious at this time of year. Sox officials have made it relatively clear that they would part with Papelbon, Lester or infielder Hanley Ramirez under only the most special of circumstances, which is to say that all three players are virtually untouchable. Sanchez and Delcarmen might be different cases, though it remains unclear whether either (or both) would be enough to fulfill a package for someone like Schmidt Boston Herald It seem the Sox could be looking at other pitchers as well, but it seem Sanchez isn't untouchable :mischief2
  13. CHICAGO - First-round draft pick Craig Hansen signed a four-year, $4 million major league deal with the Red Sox yesterday, according to industry and club sources. The Sox are expected to make the deal official today. When asked if Hansen will make his major league debut this season, a club official said ``probably not - no.'' Hansen will report to the Sox' minor league facility in Fort Myers, Fla., this week and begin a workout regimen while the team decides where to place him. Starting his career at Double-A Portland is not out of the question. The Sox took Hansen with their second pick, 26th overall, in the first round of the June draft. Expected to be a top 10 pick, he slid in large part because a number of clubs did not want to get into protracted negotiations with Hansen's representative, Scott Boras. The Sox made their first offer to Hansen and his family shortly after the All-Star break, making the negotiations unexpectedly smooth. Although Hansen would probably have to show remarkable stuff, maturity and poise for the Sox to change their inclination to keep him in the minor leagues this summer, he will likely be given a shot at cracking the major league roster next spring. The 6-foot-5, 21-year-old from Glen Cove, N.Y., and St. John's University throws a fastball in the high 90s with a good slider. His changeup is not major league ready but most relievers in the majors can get by with just two pitches. Hansen posted a 3-2 record with 14 saves this year for the Red Storm, registering 85 strikeouts in 64 innings. He was flawless in his senior season at Glen Cove High on Long Island, with an 8-0 record and 0.00 ERA. Boston Herald I guess Boras got his client a better deal than the Marlins 2.5 million(per yr for 2 or 3), but its about the money :lol
  14. me thinks he should be on his way to Jupiter.... but I guess he is being blocked by Bear eh? same goes for JT Restko... he is hitting the cover off the ball 872101[/snapback] yep, someone told me he might be better than his brother. 872145[/snapback] I seriously doubt that. His brother is 2 years younger than him and has already been in the majors. Brad should definitely get the call to Jupiter though. 872239[/snapback] Yes fran, I post that but you seem to have left that part out. I don't feel as strongly as you about him not being better than his brother, but I'll listen to the argument 872420[/snapback] I really dont see how strong of an argument you could have for Brad being better than Brian. 872433[/snapback] Well you start with the power and maybe hitting the ball to all fields...but the point is mute b/c I agree with the argument

  17. I'm pulling for Allen Baxter(he pitched in that game in Jupiter tonight) who's coming back from arm problems. The kid has a live arm...maybe they should try him in the bullpen
  18. Perisho 2IN 4H 5ER 2BB 2K 1HR Gracesqui 1.1IN 1H 2ER 2BB 1K It seem that they might be looking for another lefty in Gracesqui or Perisho...it might be better serve to look elsewhere
  19. Congrats Chris :balloons :rock :woof :banana :woohoo :dancing
  20. Hermida, Olsen, Resop, Vargas and Johnson will get the call in Sept 871996[/snapback] No Robert Andino???
  21. IMO how much Beinfest will get for AJ will be determined by how he pitches in he's next two starts. Yes, I believe this will go till next weekend 871963[/snapback] You do know that letting this go to next weekend means that we're at the deadline with AJ still in teal. If that happens, we'd be royally backed into a corner regarding the domino deals to come after (if that's even true). Not to mention, the clubhouse won't be "shaken up" enough before the deadline to fairly gauge which way we're going. One of the worst ideas ever if we let this go right to the deadline, and we still wish to be buyers. Personally, I think the Lenny Harris quote about the team trying to play harder to keep AJ and Lowell around should be a strong enough message to know that if we do deal these guys, the clubhouse will be more deflated than energized...I mean, neither of these guys are hated in the clubhouse...maybe by the fans, but not by the players... 871967[/snapback] IMO the reason this goes to the deadline is two fold one they will try like heck to trade Lowell(without take any on any of his salary) with AJ, if not they'll take the best deal on the table for AJ. In the mean the teams are driving the price up for just AJ. Also it gives the team a chance to prove to management to keep the team as is. Patience 871978[/snapback] You know you just contradicted yourself in the same post? One reason we're doing this is to up the price on AJ, the other reason is so we get the guys to play well to keep the team together. Ooooooooooooooooook :hat 871980[/snapback] I know but I don't the think the marlins know if to deal or not to deal. So it work to the benefit of the team either way.

  23. Why is everyone nutting over Anibal Sanchez? Here's is scouting report: ANIBAL SANCHEZ, rhp Age: 21 B-T: R-R Ht: 6-0 Wt: 180 Signed: Venezuela, 2001 Signed by: Carlos Ramirez Background: Sanchez pitched well for two seasons in the Rookie-level Venezuelan Summer League, then needed elbow surgery to transpose a nerve. After missing all of 2003, he came back in a huge way, leading the New York-Penn League in ERA and strikeouts and ranking as the circuit's top pitching prospect.

The Future: Sanchez will move to full-season ball for the first time in 2005, pitching at Boston's new low Class A Capital City affiliate. He might not need much more than two more seasons in the minors. Baseball America Not saying he won't be something, but he's already had elbow surgery as a 21 year old, and he isn't close to being ready. Right now, I don't think the franchise needs another pitching prospect with "growing pains." Heck, he's the #3 pitching prospect in the Red Sox organization, and the #2 RHP in a minor league system that really falls off the table after Hanley Ramirez, Brandon Moss and Jon Papelbon. Underwhelming... 871944[/snapback] that was at the begin of the season, Sanchez has pass up both Papelbon and Moss so far in AA he's gone 14.2IN 9H 2ER 6BB 22K, this after going 78IN 53H 21ER 24BB 95K with a 2.40ERA in high Single A. the kid is pretty much at the same level or higher than Scott Olsen. He's good real good I saw him pitch in the future game, he was throwing gas and was in control....BUT again I doubt the Red Sox deal him
  24. IMO how much Beinfest will get for AJ will be determined by how he pitches in he's next two starts. Yes, I believe this will go till next weekend
  25. Toronto man! That is where the gold is Chacin and Batista, they could be good for a long time Just Hoping. I disagree. White Sox and Boston deals are better. Especially if we will get Anibal Sanchez and Bronson Arroyo for Burnett. Seriously Sancehz might be a better pitching prospect than Scot Olsen and for sure is better than everyone else in our farm system and Bronson Arroyp is a solid 3 who won't be a free agent until after the 2007 season. If true make this deal now!!!!!!! Burnett also would sign a extension with Boston Burnett for Arroyo, Sanchez 871921[/snapback] agree Sanchez is the best pitching prospect thats on the table, if its true that he's on the table. I thought Sanchez and Hanley Ramirez were untouchable
