JD Durbin has a MySpace page. His user name is somewhat odd, but whatever. The dude likes George Strait, nothing wrong with that.
El Guapo's Ghost makes a pretty good case for how to use Papelbon. You should read his full post on it (it's not nearly as long winded as my posts). But basically, he says that Papelbon should be used in tough save situations only, not those 3 run, just pitch the 9th inning saves. This would allow him more rest to come in and make 4 out, 5 out, and 6 out saves. We could use Timlin or Donnely to get those easy 3 out saves. I think it's a good idea.
Still no word yet on whether Timlin will be activated, or if JD Durbin will be on the 25 man roster today.
Here are the probable pitchers for the series with Seattle. The Mariners had their rotation "adjusted" by snow in Cleveland. I wonder if there was any retractable roof talk on northern Ohio sports radio this weekend.
Today, Josh Beckett goes against former Yankee Jeff Weaver. This is Weaver's first start of the season.
Felix Hernandez goes against Daisuke Matsuzaka on Wednesday. Hernandez is coming off an 8 inning, 3 hit, shutout gem against Oakland.
Jarrod Washburn goes against Tim Wakefield on Friday.
