When a press release comes out and we are by our smart phone or computer it will immediately go on Twitter. This gives you a distinct advantage in beating your friends to the waiver wire. In most cases a radio show, tv station or web site will need five to ten minutes at best, you can get it on Twitter in 1 minute after it happens and most times it will.
Don’t forget Friday nights at 6pm ET the 411 is on Sirius / XM Radio for 2 hours. Channel 210 on Sirius, channel 175 on XM, streamed live on MLB.com and available on Itunes later that night for free download.
I surely get things wrong but when I’m right I’m right. Anyone notice Edwin Jackson’s ERA? Some may scoff at things like this (body language) but I really kept an eye on him during the Rays run last October and he worked hard and kept his chin up in some tough times he basically couldn’t even mop up for Joe Maddon. Change of scenery should not be overlooked becuase he always had good stuff and Comerica is a pretty good fit for most. I wish I didn’t stumble over his name on the Network show, but hey you know what happens.
About to go off the 411 grid for the week. Eyes deep in draft coverage.
FEATURED QUESTION OF THE DAY
What do you think of Carlos Gonzalez’s value in a 5×5 15 team
non-keeper? 12 team? Is he worthy of an immediate pickup like
McCutchen? How do you think the time share will be handled now in the
Gonzalez’s name has come up quite a bit recently. He is nowhere
near the prospect McCutchen is. McCutchen was #12 while Gonzalez didn’t crack
the top 100. I like him better as a Rockie than an Athletic but his enormous numbers
in AAA aside, I’d like to see more. Much greater impact in an NL-only is my initial feeling. Don’t forget Wood,
Gamel and LaPorta destroyed the minors before getting called up too.
