    Tyler Webb waived by the Brewers and claimed by the Padres and optioned to the minors. I wonder if Cashman put a claim in. He loves his former players.

    In the absence of Yankee baseball, looking for interesting baseball stories. Over in NPB, chatter about young player -- Kensuke Kondo -- potentially being first ever NPB player to hit .400 in a season (and first since Ichiro to hit over .380). Since beginning of last season (he missed 2nd half last year with herniated disc), has hit .417 over 294 PAs, with 25% BB rate and 12% K rate. Kondo (future Yankee) watch?

    So far there is no rumor that he's interest in MLB and his injury history is a big concern. His defense is also a suspect.

    Why are we discussing this on a thread dedicated to former Yankees?

    What would it matter? Doesn't SD have priority over NYY in waiver claims?
    Forgive me for taking the Contrarian view

    Exactly. I am just curious if we put in a claim since there is an open 40 man spot after Robinson was DFA.

    This is from a couple of months ago. Not sure if anything has changed since then. I always liked him, including his makeup and demeanor and sense we are going to regret trading him for Gray for a long, long time.

    I hated giving him up as well. I hope both he and Gray work out for both teams, but right now the chances of both failing may be greater.

    It is amazing what he is doing at his age. I remember in the late 1990s Pedro chastised Colon for being lazy and fat -- but here he is...240 wins later. Nice, easy delivery.
    Standings: Big Inning 32-16; Blue Cut 27-21; Shoo Fly 26-22; Husk 22-26; Frank Pierce 21-27; Iowa City 16-32.

    I thought you were going to say 240 pounds later!

    Impossible not to like the guy. Go Big Sexy! (Unless you're facing the Yankees, of course.)

    He lost it in the eighth. That is, lost the perfecto to the first batter and the no-no to the second. Probably my fault for turning it on.

    Now Texas is in danger of losing the game ... only a 1-0 lead and Verlander still going strong for Houston.

    Anyway, well done, Bartolo!

    EDIT: And now it's tied, on a sac fly.

    With both starters now out, the win/loss will go to pen guys, after two such extraordinary games pitched by the starters. Both had one-hitters going, Bartolo through 7 2/3, Verlander through 8.

    BR lists him at a cool 5'11, 285. So, he's probably pushing 300 lbs.

    Speaking with reporters, Wang said he was not able to get a contract in 2017 after pitching in a relief role for the Kansas City Royals in 2016 because he wasn't the same physically as he was a year earlier and he didn't have the same velocity on his pitches.

    "The most important thing now is to get my velocity back," he said.

    The fact that his role has been established has also limited his opportunities, Wang said.

    "Baseball organizations are not that willing to sign an older pitcher who is also a middle reliever," Wang said. "They prefer to call up their own pitchers."

    Me too. Good luck, Frankie.

    In case anyone else has forgotten who he's playing for now .... it's still the Pirates. We got Justin Wilson for him, and eventually turned Wilson into Chad Green and Luis Cessa.

    My wife is slick. Whenever she wants me out of whatever room she's in, she'll watch some movie on Lifetime.
