Florida. "We've had some very encouraging signs," GM Admin Beinfest said. "We thought from the beginning that we'd go as far as our starting pitching would take us. Then we lost (A.J.) Burnett, (Josh) Beckett and (Mark) Redmond. But, fortunately, along came Dontrelle Willis, who's been a lifesaver. The rest of the rotation, including Tommy Phelps (signed as a minor-league free agent), has pitched well, and Beckett has one more rehab start. Miguel Cabrera has given us a shot in the arm; he's going to hit. But let's face it, we have to get to .500 before we start talking. We'll see where we are in another month. I'm not going to deceive anyone. We have some tough decisions to make eventually. To keep this team together would mean a tremendous jump in payroll." Other GMs have called Beinfest, but he hasn't made any calls ... yet. If they are out of it, then Mike Lowell, Derrek Lee and free agent Luis Castillo will all be available. They are eight games and six teams from the wild card, but the way they have played under Jack McKeon warrants the wait. In fact, Beinfest talked to the Padres about acquiring Rondell White.


not sure if these Beinfest comments were already posted...

:mischief2 dont you think Miggy stands to far away from the plate? I know thats his style and he's doing well there, but do you think if he changed his stance just a little he'd have better timing on his swing and make better contact?





...sorry to get kind of off topic, but you were talking about Cab's
