Looks like spring training 2014 just got a little more interesting after Danny Salazar’s start on Thursday.
Wow! I like the funny Francona quote you included in your article, talking about being confident if he threw as hard as Salazar.
Let’s not put too much on Salazar. I know it’s a long shot, but he might even lose a game at Triple-A before the season ends.
As the trading deadline approaches, I was wondering about how active the Tribe will be. I heard from the Chicago Sun-Times that the Indians could be the ones who snatch Matt Garza. Is there any truth to that?

It’s unlikely that General Manager Chris Antonetti would give up a major prospect for a pitcher who will be a free agent when the season ends. If the Cubs are willing to take a secondary prospect, it could happen, but it probably won’t.
What has happened to Chris Perez and his “drug mailings?”
I would have hoped by now they would have locked him up and thrown away the key. Unfortunately, he’s still pitching.
I’m going to take a wild guess that you will not be joining the campaign to legalize the recreational use of marijuana on your street.
It’s your bad luck that the hangman who used to work with Wyatt Earp is on vacation and won’t be available to tie the noose around Perez’s neck. Absent that solution, he probably will be fined and maybe put on probation or be sentenced to community service (not anywhere near you, of course) — if he’s found guilty.
