So Fuld in right vs a lefty, not Moss, not Vogt, not Reddick

Is this the worst lineup we have seen this season?

I get it now.  Keep the guys who can actually hit on the bench.  That way when the 7th rolls around and you are down by four, you can pinch hit a Vogt or a Reddick.  I like it.

Santiago is a screwball pitcher, theoretically tougher on righties than lefties. Hmmm....

Article illustrates how ignorant baseball people are.  

I have always wondered if Carl Hubbell's arm was pronated because of the screwball or because of a congenital defect that allowed him to throw the pitch so effectively.  Think about Hubbell pitching in the 1930s.  You going to admit to a birth defect in that era?  You are probably going to say it twisted after throwing all those screwballs.  The amazing thing about Hubbell was he could throw the screwball sidearm.  Think about that for a minute.

I will say I agree with Tim Hudson on both his points.  Most guys that purported to throw a screwball really threw a ball that acted like a very good change that faded away from the normal break.  Fernando Valenzuela had that kind of action on his screwball.  And he was correct that Jim Mecir could absolutely get the ball to curve in reverse.  When his screwball was good, the ball had several inches of horizontal break away from a left handed hitter.  

He also threw his harder than most and never had any arm problems because of it.

Again, I'd like to see Beane as the GM/Manager. It would be very interesting, and I think that he would be the best one for this team going forward making managerial decisions.
I'd also like the see the A's trade for John Mayberry Jr. as a platoon player vs. LHP going forward, assuming he comes off the DL before the deadline.

Thought this board would be more active for this big series.  Everyone doubting and in wait and see mode?  Not good so far.  Angels pen will be tough to overcome if it comes to that.
