Game 161: Rays at Red Sox: The Return of Eovaldi, Hosmer, and Bogaerts

Photo by Jim Davis/The Boston Globe via The penultimate game Here we are. The second to last game of the 2022 season. But the Sox are pulling out all the stops for tonight! Xander Bogaerts is back in the lineup hopefully not for curtain calls ending his career in Boston. Nathan Eovaldi is back on the mound, looking to keep the Sox interested in his services as he enters free agency. Eric Hosmer returns to first base. Remember him? He’s...probably back for 2023 as part of his Padres contract. And making the Major League minimum salary with a good glove and OK bat that...

Offseason Headlines We Want To See

Photo by Matt Thomas/San Diego Padres/ The Over The Monster Podcast It’s podcast time! This week, Bryan and Dan draft the headlines they want to read this offseason. Bryan goes nuts with the puns, while Dan decides to be an agent of chaos and engineer a trade for Fernando Tatis Jr. There’s also some brief discussion of both the Yankees and the Nazis, though, incredibly, the two are not connected. Thanks for listening.

Yankees 6, Brewers 7: Five-run lead not enough for Montas

Photo by Larry Radloff/Icon Sportswire via The 5-0 lead quickly given to Frankie Montas didn’t last, as the trade deadline addition struggled again before Milwaukee walked it off. The Yankees traveled to Milwaukee to face a Brewers team that projects a nice parallel with them on a few levels. Coming off an NL Central win in 2021, the Brew Crew held a comfortable grip on a postseason berth and possible repeat crown in the first half, but recent scuffles have changed things a bit. They are only close in the postseason race due to the Padres’ own slump as the lowest...

One pitcher the Blue Jays should have traded for at the deadline

While the 2022 trade deadline didn’t really get moving until Juan Soto was officially dealt to the San Diego Padres, the Toronto Blue Jays eventually walked away with some depth to the bullpen and a utility player from a former playoff rival. Once it was all said and done, the Blue Jays acquired relievers Anthony […] One pitcher the Blue Jays should have traded for at the deadline - Jays Journal - Jays Journal - Toronto Blue Jays News, Rumors and Fan Community

Happy Birthday Joey Hamilton

It is Joey Hamilton’s 53rd birthday today (it is also my middle son’s birthday. Happy Birthday Tommy). Joey came to the Jays in one of the worst trades of the Gord Ash era. The Jays traded Woody Williams, Carlos Almanzar and Peter Tucci to get Joey from San Diego. Dave Stewart gave him a strong recommendation after coming to the Jays to be assistant GM, having been the Padres pitching coach the season before. Stewart had played with Joey, saw something in his eyes or some stupid thing like that, and figured he would be a star. It does explain why Stewart wasn’t promoted...

Besides, you know who I am. :) Padres = Brewers? The last time we played the Padres was before the trade deadline. We got swept at Petco Park...no, wait! We actually won a game, because Merrill Kelly > Mike Clevinger. And Melancon got a save. Ha! You didn’t see that coming! It was the last game before the All Star game and ever...
