The daily grind: 8-1

I wrote today’s grind and then I somehow deleted everything but the table while adding the player links. Here’s yesterday’s table and it’s worth noting that Domonic Brown is now an everyday starter.

A comparative study on an unwritten rule of baseball.

Reliever Redux

Greg Holland is now a closer. Aaron Crow and Kelvin Herrera wait in the wings.

Scott Downs is on the disabled list. So is Jordan Walden. That means all the saves go to Ernesto Frieri.

Wilton Lopez has elbow tightness which means that Francisco Cordero will likely to continue his crimes.

Wasn’t Grandal placed on the DL yesterday?

Quite possible, large barrage of information yesterday and it typically takes me a day or two to catch DL moves for players I don’t have rostered.
