So much so that they are giving Phil Mickelson a tryout with their AAA team (sports.espn.go.com)

Okay, maybe they're not that desperate yet, though I think he might be better than half the major league staff right now ;)

He can't be worse than the stiff the White Sox trotted out there for 1/3 of an inning today against the Yankees. Gee, we have a chance to sweep the Yankees, we'll bump a hot pitcher for this kid. Brantley on ESPN really went ballistic over Manuel making such another brilliant decision. Thanks again White Sox for costing the Red Sox an opportunity to pick up half a game on the Yankees, and hopefully this decision will cost the White Sox a division title.




Ok, so Ted Williams is decapitated now? What will his son do next, sell him to the Japanese dog food company that bought former Kentucky Derby winner Ferdinand?

While I understand the Red Sox fan anger, and trust me I would have much preferred Buerhle out there to Cotts, I think Manuel's logic wasn't too bad here.

The way the Sox bats have been going there was a reasonable chance that they could carry Cotts today despite a bad outing. No one expected him to implode on the mound like that. And with the really weird luck the Sox have vs. Detroit, better to keep Buerhle for a must-win (losing to Detroit would be criminal at this point in the year) than in going for a sweep of a team that's not likely to get swept.

Of course the real lesson of that game is that it's time for the Sox to go to a 4 man rotation ASAP.

If the White Sox were playing either the Twins or the Royals this weekend, I could actually understand the move, as it would mean pitching Buerhle in a two-game swing game instead of a game against the Yankees. But, when you have a chance to sweep a team the White Sox could face in the first round of the playoffs on the road, you pitch Buerhle on his normal day and assume that Cotts can keep you close against the Tigers. Although, to be fair, I think Cotts does deserve at least two more starts for the White Sox before any rush to judgement can be made. He can pitch Wed. 9.3 and Sat. 9.13 against Boston.
And, could someone tell Carl Everett in the first inning with Mussina on the ropes to pay attention to what the count is.
I hope everyone understands this now: The official stretch drive of the baseball season has begun, as it is now acceptable/expected for a person to bitch/complain about the moves made by the team playing the team your team is in competition with. Now, the real fun begins. BTW, thanks for nothing Orioles for getting swept in Oakland. Way to spit the bit. God, this is fun.

33-year old rookie Mickelson won't do any worse than the 20-something rookies Detroit already has...
