Just a few items to catch you up on.
Tim Wakefield is not really improving, but he wants to give it another shot. He’s slated to start Monday in Kansas City against the Royals. Personally I don’t want to see him get hurt, but with the wild card race shaking out, if he can give us some innings, it can’t hurt, right? More rest for our playoff rotation.
Congratulations to David Ortiz, who recently set the record for most career HR by a DH with 312.
Jon Heyman (aka Scott Boras’ mouthpiece) says that Jason Bay could command a free agent contract around 4/$60M or even 5/$80M this offseason. Here’s the original article, with some other big name free agents listed. Given his age, injury history and defense, I’d pass at this price point.
Another prospect gets surgery: OF Zach Daeges is going to remove a bone from his ankle. If everything goes well, he should be ready in time for Spring Training.
