Aceves: “Everything was normal”

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Jun 13, 2010 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Alfredo Aceves just threw on flat ground and felt no pain in his lower back.

“Nothing hurt,” he said. “Everything was normal.”

Aceves went through his normal pitching mechanics, throwing roughly the same distance as from the mound to the plate. He guessed that the session lasted six to eight minutes, and he was throwing at roughly 60 percent effort.

He doesn’t know for sure, but he believes he could throw again tomorrow.

    I doubt Aceves could return effectively. This back problem will linger for the whole season.

    Better plan ahead, move on without him.

    The pitcher from the same draft class (7th overall pick) as Phil Hughes and supposedly better, Homer Bailey has been shut down from pitching any at all, indefinately.

    Thank God for your great clairvoyant abilities, Nostradamus. The world owes you so much. Do you have next week’s power ball numbers?

    I don’t see HGH as being anything other than as a sugar pill/placebo.

    Great news on Ace!

    Hopefully he can return at nearly the same degree of effectiveness and Gaudin can hit the bricks.

    Good news. Getting back a healthy Aceves would be as good or better than any bullpen trade they could make.

    Unfortunately no one knows what the HGH admission will do to Andy’s chances, but minus that aspect he’s on pace to make it with another 25-35 wins; which would be too hard to ignore for the voters. Once the first user gets in it will ease this process.

    There’s a good question for the board, who’s the first user to get in, is there one?
    ==================================
    Do you really think the admission of usage bars you from the HOF?
    Guys like Bonds, Clemens and McGwire thumbed their nose at the public and press.
    Their usage was also responsible for their success in their later years.
    Bonds and Clemens might make it in as time goes by but like Rose, it is doubtful.
    Andy’s usage is perceived as a one-time thing and not as something that got him to a pinnacle like Bonds or Clemens.
    McGwire will never get in as his #’s were not Hall-worthy before he was suspected of using.

    You are correct. I’ve known Alfredo for 3 years, and he’s always had some back issues, but, has been able to pitch very effectively none the less. This time the flare-up was a little worse, but, once again he’ll come back and do well.

    I think the jury is out at how anybody’s chances at the Hall will be effected long term.

    Who is to say minds change about the era ten years from now.

    I think its risky to draw absolute conclusions about any player right now.

    Ten years from now, there will be a number of new HOF voters who may approach looking at this era differently than their predecessors.

    Sometimes, hard as it may be, drawing absolute conclusions on things that are years away from coming up, isn’t always prudent.

  10. blake June 13th, 2010 at 12:01 pm

    Which bodes well for Arod because he’s about 15 years away from his name even being on the ballot.

    PEd use was pandemic in baseball for about 50 years, between greenies and roids. Roids, contrary to popular belief, started back in the `60s and `70s, not with Canseco and Inky and those guys. They got them figured out (so they thought) in the `80s and that’s when everyone started using. HGH is still widely used today, and one of the giveaways is the side effect of chin growth and other facial changes. Many of the user grow bears (cough-Werth-cough) to cover the effects of their use.

    PeterBotte Joba, with Ghana in team pool, emerges from back room with arms raised. Last week said: “All the rich guys got the countries I heard of.”

    :smile:

    Have a good day everyone. Go Yankees.

    if sam and chad don’t put some more effort and bring some of their opinions into the blog, it’s going to simply regress into being a minor blog.
    =================================================
    Randy—-Obviously they either don’t care, are unequipped or are being told what to do.
    Not all are built to be controversial and if they have no vested interest in getting involved here, they won’t.
    Also, many including yourself, have been absent here lately for one reason or another, further
    diminishing blog hits by good posters that drive the blog.

    The side effects of steroid are vastly exaggerated. I used it throughout my career. I was fine — and still am.

  15. GreenBeret7 June 13th, 2010 at 12:07 pm

    Nobody should be allowed to grow ***bears*** in captivity.

    The thought that most are users will work in favor of some getting in. Guys who thumbed their noses will hurt them as the writers will take it personally and use spite as their revenge.

    “The side effects of steroid are vastly exaggerated. I used it throughout my career. I was fine — and still am.”

    tell that to Curt Hennig, the British bulldog, and Ravishing Rick Rude.

  18. BIG AL June 13th, 2010 at 12:13 pm

    I agree, whether you agreed or disagreed with Pete Abe, and some of his comments, he was involved in the blog. It would be nice to see that same involvement from Chad and Sam. Now that there’s 2 of them, vs. just 1 writer before, it should be easier to be engaged in the blog conversations.

  19. SJ44 June 13th, 2010 at 12:17 pm

    I also think more involvement re: stories/topics will curb the impersonating, trolling and overall idiocy some of the children have brought on here in the past month.

    Its especially important now that school is ending for the summer.

    If there are no chances, the clowns will take over the place and run off more regulars and this place will be a ghost town, compared to what it used to be.

    “tell that to Curt Hennig, the British bulldog, and Ravishing Rick Rude.”

    2 people could eat the same diet everyday and suffer different health consequences or benefits from it.

    Steroids probably work the same way.

    They tell people to not to use cellphones on airplanes because it could interfere with plane’s electronics. That’s not true. Just a lie. It, however, could wreak havoc on cell networks on the ground.

    But hey, telling people that their plane could crash due to cellphone usage is a lot more effective way to enforce the ban.

    Similar story with steroid usage…

  22. Bret the Hitman June 13th, 2010 at 12:21 pm

    The HOF has an image and history to uphold. They must honor an American tradition. Just because fans rooted for these admitted cheaters doesn’t change the mission of the HOF. I think people are crazy to think the HOF will allow this dark era in baseball to tarnish or embarrass this game. Pete Rose will never get into the Hall of Fame.

  23. BIG AL June 13th, 2010 at 12:24 pm

    Anyone that believes steriod use will not harm you, is nuts. There is simply not enough time and space to list all the people that have destroyed their lives, for the chance to succeed in sports. Their lives are cut short, and the health problems are numerous. Stop talking out of your butt, steriod use kills!
