Al Central Watch: July 5

| 3 Comments | No TrackBacks

Here's a quick glance at what's happening around the American League Central.

The red-hot Twins are getting offensive contributions from everyone. The Twins scratched second baseman Alexi Casilla from the lineup Friday because of a sore left middle finger.

Shortsop Edgar renteria continues to struggle and the Tigers are back to .500. The pitching-thin Tigers are mulling the idea of moving hard-throwing setup man Joel Zumaya to their rotation. Lynn Henning takes a closer look at the dreaded oblique injury, something that has hit the Tigers particularly hard this season.

Though the Indians appear on the verge of dealing ace C.C. Sabathia for a crop of young talent, general manager Mark Shapiro insists the Tribe is not about to undergo a major rebuilding.

Check back later for updates.

All star pickings must be pretty weak this year? Crede & Wood both all stars. Crede batting near .260 & his fielding among the worse in baseball (almost costing Sox on Sunday). Wood has had some good moments but 5 blown saves hardly impressive for a all star especially.As a Sox fan love to see Crede come around & certainly Crede gives sox a better option than a Fields or whomever else Sox have in system.Wood ,just waiting around for his next choke job.

As reported, both Crede and Quentin were voted on the team by fellow American League Players as opposed to being voted starters by the mass of moronic baseball fans. I have on problem with Quentin as he has been lights out for the Sox. With Crede, the only thing that comes to mind is a sympathy vote as this may well be (unfortunately) his last year with the Sox and in the American League. What about JD? Look at the year he is having! How about The Cuban Missile? This is another great addition with a great year in progress.

No Sox pitchers on the allstar team? What a shame! Glad to see Quentin and Crede make it but surelt at least Floyd should have been on the roster. It doesn't matter. The AL will still pound them!
