    Ugh. This is a team that needs to rebuild, you have a young promising closer now with a 1.84 ERA, a 1.13 WHIP and about a strikeout per inning... and they're going to take him out of that role for a mediocre veteran.

    I know Melancon will still pitch, but if he's the closer of the future (and by far the best reliever on staff now), I don't see any logic to removing him from that role. Especially with this team.

    Typical manager baloney. Melancon has been leaps and bounds above anything Lyon has given the team - sub-2 ERA, nearly a K per inning and a 3/1 K/BB ratio. But Lyon is a veteran, so he obviously is more qualified than the rookie. I thought Boston was a more progressive organization than most - hopefully those are just empty platitudes.

    Oh, and Melancon's on my fantasy team. :cool:

    Eh, Mills said what he's supposed to say out of respect to the veteran. In fact, he's right...Lyon was pretty good last year.

    If his save opp comes after Melancon worked 2 or 3 days in a row, no worries. If he starts stealing save opps from MM, then that's another story.

    If you haven't been watching the Stros play much this season...it maybe time to give them a glance.

    Screw you Puma...

    If that fan would have cost Pence that catch, I would be on my way to open up a can.

    Of course that would happen.

    Should've been a walk.

    Owned again by Puma. Well, sort of. Still great stuff from Bud and we're winning.

    Not that it really matters, but the no-hitter is over.

    I have to admit, Berkman doing this is kind of irritating. We did the right thing but if it wasn't for Lee in left, I think Puma would be over there and Wallace at first. Still, wouldn't have made that much of a difference in the big picture.

    I was tough on him because he set such a high standard for himself and I still think he gave up a bit last season but class act and one of my favorites of this past decade.
