Fultz on DL, Mujica re-re-re-yo-yo'd

Unread postby Steve Buffum » Wed Jun 27, 2007 2:34 pm

I didn't see what Fultz' ailment was, just that he's on the DL.

Looks like Stanford may get some innings.

(Boy, how good does Rafael Perez look now?)

Perez, Cabrera, and a TBD will determine whether we make the playoffs or not.

Thus far and what I've seen Perez has entrenched himself in our bullpen and I really like the fact he can get lefties out.

We just desparately need Cabrera to figure it out or Miller to provide that other arm to aid Betancourt from the right side. (I've pretty much relegated Mastny to that last bullpen option at this point)

Part of me even wants to say throw Mujica out there and see if he sinks or swims. We are going to have to know sooner or later.

Heck, we might get a chance to see Stanford in action since its now only him and Perez as bullpen lefties.

Unfortunately without Fultz being around and available, I doubt Wedge will leave Perez out there for more than an inning at a time now (it would render Perez unavailable for the next day or 2).

Perez is a stud...he and Rafael will be the horses down the stretch, but there needs to be one other step up and make it happen. Who remains to be seen.

Stanford will hopefully work out.

That would be nice. But the guy is now 30 years old and the 12 IP this year makes a total of 12 innings pitched in 3 years. Might be hoping for a lot.

Maybe he's on that 2 years post Tommy John path but he hasn't been in the middle of it for a while. They need to catch a break with a situation like that, develop some depth and then get Fultz back. He's done a nice job thus far.

We need somebody to step up as that middle inning right-hander. Oldberto flamed out. Mastny has been wildly inconsistent. Matt Miller pitched ten excellent innings in Buffalo and is now hurt again. Cabrera is inconsistent. Maybe Mujica is the answer, but he has not been that impressive at Buffalo.

FYI

Fultz has a strained muscle in the rib cage area.

Damn it, why is everyone afraid to say "oblique"? (Not you specifically, more targeted at media outlets.)

What the hell is with all the oblique injuries these days?

I remember when the pulled hamstring used to be fashionable. Now? You have about three oblique injuries for every tweaked hammy.

Man, if Fultz stays out for any length of time it give he, Borowski, Nixon, Delucci the inside track for the most insignificant free agent class ever. If only Keith Foulke were around to see it.
