Jeremy Affeldt Should Be Placed In Bubble Wrap

Tuesday, May 1st, 2012

San Francisco Giants reliever Jeremy Affeldt might want to spend his time away from the ballpark in a bubble. Seriously. In September, Affeldt sliced his non-throwing hand to the bone while separating frozen hamburgers (has happened to the best of us). But now, Affeldt's home life has injured him again.

Tuesday, May 13th, 2008

Yes, we've been jumping all over Barry Zito this season. You can see most of those posts here. Oh, and don't forget about this one. As has been chronicled and will continue to be chronicled, he is terrible.Well, there are indications he may be moving up a step from terrible. ...
