  1. I was busy and didn’t get to see Weinhardt in the AFL championship game: how’d he look in just the eye-ball-test?

  2. he looked great…good deception, kinda hides the ball behind him. 4 k’s in 2 innings

    heres a clip of him (and iorg making a play) closing the AFL out

  3. OK, I took a look, but didn’t think he had good deception. Doesn’t twist his body around much at all. Hides the ball in his glove fairly well. Just saw 3 pitches, so what do I know.

  4. Deception is less about looking like Dontrelle Willis and more about keeping the ball hidden behind your body for as long as you can.

  5. he holds it behind his back, longer than most overhand pitchers. similar delay to rapada, but from another slot. i dunno, i noticed it and so did the AFL announcers.

  6. From mlbtraderumors this morning:

    Detroit seem to be becoming more determined in their quest to trade pitcher Edwin Jackson. An unnamed executive is quoted as saying, “It’s like they want to give him away, and I don’t really understand why.”

  7. Maybe DD read on a blog somewhere that EJax was just “a guy who throws hard” and is just hoping to get some team’s 4th outfielder / minor league prospect for him. :)

  8. Not sure how long this will stay up, but I guess Stafford’s injury is all Yahoo needs to see…http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/bo.....0091126008

  9. They took it down. For some reason, Yahoo had a box score up for tomorrow’s game. All the way down to the individual stats (Culpepper gets pulled for Stanton). I don’t want to kill the suspense, but GB wins 26-0.

  10. still there, haha!

  11. Turns out it was the first game’s box score. Though it did have the Lions at 2-9.

  12. Thanks for the link. About what I expected. Still really excited about the arsenal he has.

  13. Either that or DD is still concerned about his propensity for “acting aggressively”–don’t forget MLB fined him for “aggressive actions” during the Porcello-Youkilis brawl. Who knows when the next brawl will happen, and who’s to say he won’t be out there standing around looking aggressive again. Best to trade him before another outburst of angry glaring…
