Well the calendar turned to the month of August and the Tigers got it started on the right foot beating the Colorado Rockies in the opener of the 3 game series 4-2. Justin Verlander started for the Tigers and went 8 innings. He gave up 8 hits, 2 runs both of which were earned. He struck out 5 and did not allow a walk on the night. Joe Nathan came on in the 9th and picked up his 22nd save. Verlander’s record improves to 10-9 on the season. The offensive star of the night for Detroit was Rajai Davis who had 2 RBI’s and 2 runs scored. It was Davis first game after replacing Austin Jackson who was traded the day before in the huge trade that brought David Price to the Tigers. Franklin Morales started for the Rockies and went 6 innings giving up 3 runs. He was charged with the loss. While Colorado currently sits in last place in the West Division and also sports the worst record in the National League it is not due to their offense. They actually have the highest team batting average of any team in basebal ...

They're scheduled to face left-handed starters in the next four games: Eric Stults and Robbie Erlin of the Padres in the remainder of the current series, and Jorge De La Rosa and Franklin Morales in the first two games at Colorado on Monday and Tuesday, respectively. The Giants are 4-3 in games started by left-handers this season. That's a small sample size, but it's more promising than the club's 24-31 performance in that category last year. Expect catcher Buster Posey and left fielder Michael Morse, who rested before making unsuccessful pinch-hitting appearances in Friday's 2-1 loss, to return to the lineup. Both are right-handed hitters who should present a formida ...

Padres vs rockies game 4 of the series on channel 56 LIVE @ PETCO PARK the starting pitcher is Franklin Morales from the rockies n Ian Kennedy from the padres
Doc's Sports Thursday MLB Free Play from Doc’s Sports Take San Diego Padres over Colorado Rockies (Thursday, 6:40pm EST) Two middling teams from the NL West battle it out in San Diego as the Rockies and Padres close out a four-game series on Thursday. We’re less than three weeks into the 2014 season, but it hasn’t taken long to get some separation amongst the competitors in the NL West. The Dodgers and Giants have distanced themselves at the top, the Diamondbacks are the worst team in baseball at the bottom, and that leaves the Pads and Rockies right in the middle. There isn’t a lot that separates these two teams as far as overall ability, but San Diego has some value today for a couple of reasons. First and foremost, they have the edge on the mound with Ian Kennedy. The veteran right-hander is rounding back into his old form from his Diamondback days where he had three very good seasons. He’s cut his walks down significantly so far and his strikeout rate is better. He’s also getting a few mor ...
The Prez Free Pick Rockies at Padres Play: Under 7.5 The San Diego Padres exploded offensively on Wednesday night scoring a 4-2 victory over the Colorado Rockies. Yes, the first sentence said that the Pads bats exploded, and considering that San Diego is last in the National League with 44 runs scored and home runs per at bat 1:61. The Padres went 3-for-7 with runners in scoring position, the lineup's best season performance to date, and an occurrence that will likely be the norm for a current San Diego offense that doesn't figure to scare opposing pitchers, and even when the injured Carlos Quinton, Chase Headley and Cameron Maybin return this offense isn't going to put up many crooked numbers in any three-out frame The likes of Everth Cabrera, Will Venable, Seth Smith, Xavier Nady, Yonder Alonso, Chris Denorfia, Tommy Medica and others are definitive unknowns if you ask the average sports fan what they have done in their career or even who they are for that matter. Today's Pads starter, Ian Kennedy, is m ...

New York Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner is drawing interest from at least six teams. It is said that the Phillies & Tigers are interested in Gardner as well. Gardner hit .273 (147-539) with 8 home runs in 145 games in 2013. Gardner is set to be a free agent after the 2014 season. San Diego Padres outfielder Chris Denorfia is drawing interest from around six teams. Padres General Manager Josh Byrnes is no expected to deal Denorfia as long as he thinks the Padres can contend for a post season berth. Denorfia hit .279 (132-473) with 10 home runs in 144 games in 2013 with the Padres. Free agent RHP Todd Coffey has a tentative showcase date on January 17 in Arizona, with potentially up to 21 teams in attendance.

As of the World Series ending, SS Stephen Drew, OF Jacoby Ellsbury, RHP Joel Hanrahan, 1B Mike Napoli, and C Jarrod Saltalamacchia became free agents. The Red Sox retain their rights until Nov. 5, at which point they can sign with any team. The Red Sox hold 2014 contract options on two players: LHP Jon Lester for $13 million (or a $250,000 buyout) and LHP Matt Thornton for $6 million (or a $1 million buyout). Those decisions are expected by 11:59 p.m. on Saturday. The Red Sox also have decisions to make on arbitration-eligible players.

Greenville Drive Alumni Jon Lester, Clay Buchholz, Xander Bogaerts, Brandon Workman, Will Middlebrooks, Felix Doubront and Franklin Morales have led the Boston Red Sox to the 2013 World Series Championship. It is an exciting time to be a fan of the Red Sox and the Greenville Drive!! :)
Congrats to SFX Clients , Clay Buchholz, Franklin Morales & John Farrell on the WS win!
I don't envy John Farrell having to choose between Matt Thornton, Drake Britton and Franklin Morales for a second lefty coming out of the postseason bullpen. Craig Breslow's a lock, and Felix Doubront pitched nicely today, very fluid, but he's been a starter all year and it seems unlikely that he would get any postseason starts with Lester, Buchholz, Lackey and Peavy in front of him. So use Felix, Dempster and Brandon Workman for long relief and Breslow, Tazawa and Koji for late innings. That leaves De La Rosa, Webster, Britton, Thronton and Morales on the outs. The other question marks remain: Ryan Lavarnway or David Ross, JBJ Jr. (depending on Ellsbury's return) or Quintin Berry, and which one utility infielder, MacDonald or Holt or Snyder.

God, but I hope the don't pitch Franklin Morales in the post-season. Sox 6-9 vs. in 2013.
The Sox had plenty on the table on Wednesday. Beating the Baltimore Orioles would have: -- Clinched at least a wild-card playoff berth. -- Cut the magic number for the division title to two. -- Increased the lead on Oakland for the best record in the American League to 3.5 games. Instead there was nothing gained as the Orioles came away with a 5-3 victory in 12 innings. Franklin Morales gave up a two-run single to Chris Davis to take the loss. The Sox had 15 hits but scored one run over the final 11 innings. They grounded into four double plays, two in extra innings, and left nine runners on base. “We needed one big hit and we didn’t get it,” Dustin Pedroia said. “But we’ll be OK.” On Beard Night, more than 4,000 fans grabbed $1 tickets with beards real and fake and helped create a spirited midweek atmosphere. The hirsute saw a two-run home run by David Ortiz in the first inning and a solo shot my Mike Napoli in the sixth. But that was the extent of the offense. The Sox should do what they can ...

It is in vain to say that democracy is less vain, less proud, less selfish, less ambitious, or less avaricious than aristocracy or monarchy.

I suggest a change to our national symbol!!! While the eagle is ok especially when described by Ben Franklin, "The bald eagle...is a bird of bad moral character; like those among men who live by sharping and robbing, he is generally poor, and often very lousy."

Added to some Americans' lust for freebies, is the problem of our society's moral decline. (I guess you could say the two are linked: After all, only an immoral person would ask his government to take by force the earnings of his neighbor and give it to him.) Consider the words of Ben Franklin: "Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters." Or think about what John Adams said: "Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other."

Kirksey1 Timothy 6:6-19 Introduction Are you living the good life?  The good life means different things to different people.  If you ask 100 people to define or to describe the good life, you will likely receive 100 different answers.     Recently, I found a copy of a book by Max Anders titled The Good Life: Living With Meaning in A ‘Never-Enough’ World.  From the back cover we read, “You were created to live the Good Life.  Just don’t be fooled by imitations.  Wealth. . .  Purpose . . . Love . . . Power . . . There’s nothing wrong with desiring these things.  In fact, God fully intends for us to have them.  The problem is that we too often settle for cheap substitutes.  Instead of wealth, we take money.  Instead of purpose, we pursue ambition.  Instead of love, we accept sex.  Instead of power, we want clout.  Striving for the world’s definition of success only leads to a frustrating, unfulfilled grind.  We think we’ll find sa ...

DANGERS OF DEMOCRACY Only in the mindless optimism of social progressives is democracy, in and of itself, a good thing. The world's most stable democracies are always far less than democratic. The framers of the American republic were at least as afraid of rule by the people as they were of rule by monarchs. The judicial branch was intentionally made as insulated from direct democracy as possible. The Senate, also, was designed with less than democratic ideals. Wyoming gets the same number of senators as California. The so-called checks and balances built into both American and British democracies are as much to limit power resting in popular vote, as they are to guard against rule by tyrants. Many people have been surprised that democratic processes have led to repressive governments in a number of countries. In our own nation, the now constant references to opinion polls has led many to think all of the decisions of a government should be decided by a majority of the population. Nothing could be more da ...
Attention On Deck: Ever have someone say, 'Keep your Religion out of Politics."

You can't do it, - well, neither can I. Have a nice day.
I bet a lot of people still believe that Thomas Edison is the Father of All Electricity in your home. In school I was taken on a school field trip to the winter home and laboratory of 'famed inventor Thomas Alva Edison.' It is a lie. Watch a short video and enlighten yourself, maybe it will even help you realize that public schooling and media outlets are all in the pockets of men in power, all corrupt, all lies. The Truth lives at The Blaze, check it out. You can also do your own research and stop following the herd. We are Not sheep, you can shed that wool coat.
Who is your favorite founding father of the USA and why?
Rua Sa Ferreira 184 apt. 103 Copacabana Rio de Janeiro, Brasil joetwagner June 25, 2013 Dear Chancellor Merkel, I love my American culture, but I do realize that my U.S. Government can make big mistakes. I learned this years ago when the U.S. Marine Corp encouraged us young Marines to torture to the death Vietnamese prisoners, if they refused to give us information. I lost confidence in the U.S. military, and I became ashamed of the uniform I wore. I started to have sympathy for the communist. The military had taken advantage of my patriotism and had encourage me to go to immoral extremes. I felt like such an oppressor in a uniform. I felt like a German boy trapped in a Nazi uniform. I just wanted to rid myself of the shame and the uniform I wore. I rebelled and found myself shivering in a cold jail cell without adequate food or clothes to keep warm. I started having trouble breathing, but I was illegally refused medical attention. I continued to refuse to conform. I told the military I was ...
All of our founding father's believed in the right to bear arms, a limited federal government, and all of the freedoms guaranteed in the constitution and the following Amendments. Many, including the major media, believe these notions are out of date and irrelevant. The Constitutional ideals were expressed by visionary men, who. in many cases, were historical scholars. They realized that even the best of governments, as they draw more power unto themselves, tend to become corrupt. It is only through the vigilance of the citizenry that this is avoided. Denying basic freedoms, including privacy, even in the guise of safety, is not a good thing. Benjamin Franklin said ”Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both.” We need to hold our representatives accountable, whether it is spying on our phone calls and emails, limiting our freedom of speech, or our right to bear arms. These are our rights, as guaranteed by our forefathers. We shoul ...
"We can see beyond the present shadows of war in the Middle East to a new world order where the strong work together to deter and stop aggression. This was precisely Franklin Roosevelt's and Winston Churchill's vision for peace for the post-war period." -- Richard Gephardt, in the Wall Street Journal (September 1990) "If we do not follow the dictates of our inner moral compass and stand up for human life, then his lawlessness will threaten the peace and democracy of the emerging new world order we now see, this long dreamed-of vision we've all worked toward for so long." -- President George Bush (January 1991)

Prayer for Our Nation Jentezen Franklin, Free Chapel “If My people…will humble themselves, and pray…I will hear.” 2 Chronicles 7:14 In August 1984, President Ronald Reagan spoke at the national prayer breakfast in Dallas and stated: “We poison our society when we remove its theological underpinnings. We court corruption when we leave it bereft of belief. All are free to believe or not believe; all are free to practice faith or not. But those who believe must be free to speak of and act on their belief, to apply moral teaching to public questions. I submit to you that the tolerant society is open to and encouraging of all religions. And this does not weaken us; it strengthens us…without God, there is no virtue, because there’s no prompting of the conscience. Without God, we’re mired in the material, that flat world that tells us only what the senses perceive. Without God, there is a coarsening of the society. And without God, democracy will not and cannot long endure. If we ever forget that ...
How different our history might have been had this section of the Declaration of Dependence not been removed, which denounces slavery as a crime imposed on the colonies. The Committee of the Five, composed of Sherman, Franklin, Jefferson, Adams, and Livingston had included the passage below and submitted it in their draft of the Declaration of Independence to Congress (to The Committee of the Whole) who voted to remove it. Had all of the men at the Second Continental Congress had the stones and the moral compasses do away with slavery at the beginning of the Republic for just the reasons so vividly described by Jefferson as an "execrable commerce" in "men" that are "bought & sold", we would have been a far different and more enlightened country where all human beings are treated and live as such, but much earlier our history. Declaration of Independence, "Committee of the Five" original draft. On slavery: "He has waged cruel war against human nature itself, violating it's most sacred rights of life & libe ...
Serious question: which had the greatest impact on our founders: Calvinism or the Enlightenment?
3 1/2 more years of Obama? Where's the Egyptian Army when you need them? Maybe they should send a few advisers to the US to show us how to get rid of corrupt President's.
A history lesson everyone should read and share. but its More than 20 words so I doubt more than 30 people will read it. But for you 30 congratulations. Before America was founded the historical records have recorded many nations that had flourished in democracy. Looking thru the eye of history we know that Democracy is always temporary in nature: it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It never has. Our founding fathers knew this and yet formed this republic based upon a democratic society. But there was not one of them that believed democracy Had a chance of success. So they tried an experiment. Let me explain why democracies have failed in the past. A democracy will continue to exist up until the voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority will always vote for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal . ...
President Nicolás Maduro of Venezuela said he had decided to offer asylum to the former American intelligence contractor Edward J. Snowden.
I have been revisiting some of the details of the birth of our great nation and I am struck by the sheer scope of betterment of the risk taken in the face of overwhelming opposing power. The men that founded our country defied a tidal wave of crushing power with little more than farmers and militarily novice boys and young men. Modern history has seen nothing like this. We must never forget the unfathomable bravery, and near lunacy of the course our ancestors took for the betterment of a new concept. Individual liberty.

RHP Clay Buchholz, who was shut down for a few days to rest his sore shoulder, will start playing catch again Saturday or Sunday. "He's feeling improved," Farrell said. "This is a prescribed time period to not throw. Everything is pointing towards this weekend to initiate that." • Farrell did not rule out using closer Koji Uehara for a third consecutive night. If Uehara is not available, the Sox will go with the best matchup in the ninth inning. There is no designated backup closer. • LHP Franklin Morales, on the disabled list with a strained pectoral muscle, played catch this afternoon with head athletic trainer Rick Jameyson. He won't be back any time soon but the Sox wanted to get his arm moving again. • RHP Daniel Bard, who has not pitched for Double A Portland since May 15, has recovered from what the Red Sox said was an abdominal strain. He could pitch in a game soon. Source: Boston.com

After going 4-2 on their home stand, the Red Sox are on the road for two three game series against the The Rays and Orioles. Here's a peek at the possible pitching matchups for the series at the Trop. Mon, June 10 @ 7:10pm John Lackey vs Alex Cobb Tue, June 11 @ 7:10pm Jon Lester vs Roberto Hernandez Wed June 11 @ 7:10pm TBA (could possibly be Franklin Morales) vs Chris Archer
Game 1, June 8 Trumbo, Aybar lead Angels to Game 1 victory Hanson pitches five strong; lineup shift helps keep streak vs. Boston. Playing their first game in three days, and first of a split doubleheader at Fenway Park, the Angels got a solid start from Tommy Hanson and used a four-run seventh inning to distance themselves in a 9-5 win over the Red Sox on Saturday afternoon. Nursing a one-run lead in the seventh, Albert Pujols -- who also drove in a run on a sacrifice fly and lined a single -- was intentionally walked with a runner on second and two outs. It marked the seventh time he was given a free pass this year, and the first time it came with Josh Hamilton not batting behind him. The next batter, Mark Trumbo, lined an RBI double down the right-field line, and then Red Sox reliever Franklin Morales lost control, issuing three straight walks -- at one point throwing 10 straight balls -- to bring in two more runs. Erick Aybar, batting eighth as part of a drastic lineup change that had Hamilton hitting ...

Game over, Red Sox pound the Phillies 9-2. Morales pitched five solid innings in his season debut and the Red Sox offense clicked all night long. Especially the lead off hitter Jacoby Ellsbury. He was making Erik Kratz (Phillies catcher) go crazy all night long. Ellsbury went 3-4 with a run, 1 BB, 1 HBP and 5 stolen bases. Jarrod Saltalamacchia hit a two-run double in the first and an RBI double in the 9th inning. Jonny Gomes and David Ortiz both went yard. Franklin Morales (1-0) got the win: 5 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 BB, 2 K. Breslow in the 6th/7th. Mortensen in the 7th. Tazawa in the 8th. Bailey in the 9th to close it out. The Red Sox split the season series 2-2 with the Phillies. Next up on the schedule is the Yankees. The Yankees have been playing terrible baseball lately. They have lost 5 games in a row and just lost four games in a row to the lowly Mets. This next stretch of games is going to tell us a lot about this Red Sox team. They go up against (in order) the Yankees, Rangers, Angels, Rays, Orioles and ...

Predicting the Red Sox roster, version 2: ROTATION (5) LHP Jon Lester RHP Clay Buchholz RHP Ryan Dempster LHP Felix Doubront RHP John Lackey Breakdown: No changes here since the first version. Doubront is back in the rotation and seems to be holding onto his spot despite a shaky start. He is out of minor league options, so the Red Sox can't just cavalierly replace him. Plus he was pretty good last season. BULLPEN (7) RHP Joel Hanrahan RHP Andrew Bailey RHP Junichi Tazawa RHP Koji Uehara LHP Andrew Miller RHP Clayton Mortensen RHP Alfredo Aceces Breakdown: LHPs Craig Breslow (shoulder) and Franklin Morales (back) seem destined for the disabled list. Breslow is a lock at this point as he has yet to throw off a mound. Morales appeared in one game before his back pain started. The final two spots will come down to Mortensen, Aceves and Daniel Bard. Mortensen and Aceves are a bit redundant in that they are multi-inning relievers. But Mortensen has a funky delivery that sets him apart from the rest of the relie ...
The Red Sox have 10 relievers vying for seven bullpen spots this spring. It seems that the issue may have already worked itself out. Craig Breslow (shoulder) and Franklin Morales (lower back) are both behind schedule due to injuries and are expected to start the season on the disabled list. Daniel Bard, who still has minor league options, will likely start the season at Triple-A, where he can continue to work on his mechanical issues.
Next one team i have dreaded to do analysis of The Red Sox Unfortunately the Red Sox will be lucky to have a winning season because they question marks are endless and the division is only getting better. Shall we begin the Red Sox need 35 wins between Jon Lester and Clay Buchholtz and need 50 with those two and one of the other 5 potential starters, my guess Ryan Dempster. John Lackey supposedly will be ready for the season and getting John Ferrell will aid in his comeback. Ferrell will be key for this staff's success but should not be blamed for its potential failure. If Lackey is not ready or slips up do not be surprised if Franklin Morales steps in. The debate of Alfredo Aceves being a starter isn't a debate. He has proved his value as a reliever and Ferrell knows it. Joel Hanrahan and Andrew Bailey should take care of 8th and 9th innings. So if starting pitching can go 7 consistently we could see a decent pitching staff. The next problem is producing at the plate. Dustin Pedroia and Jacoby Ellsbury a ...
AFTERNOON SPORTS UPDATE: Franklin Morales makes his spring debut on the mound for the Red Sox tonight as they face an Orioles split squad on the road at Sarasota. Also slated to throw for Boston is new closer Joel Hanrahan and reliever Andrew Bailey. Patriots quarterback Tom Brady says he really "does just want to win." Brady wrote that in an e-mail to WEEI radio explaining why he didn't want to talk about his new contract. WEEI reports Brady wrote that athletes "all make way more than our fair share" and talking about money would reflect poorly on him and his teammates. The Bruins beat the Islanders for the 16th time in 20 meetings. Brad Marchand scored the goal-ahead in the second period for the B's in their 4-1 victory last night. Adam McQuaid, David Krejci and Greg Campbell also scored. The Bruins won their fourth straight to bolster their best start since the 1976-77 season.

Red Sox heading to Sarasota tomorrow night to play the Orioles with Franklin Morales scheduled to start. Game being broadcast on NESN, which means several regulars will make trip, including Dustin Pedroia, Will Middlebrooks, Jacoby Ellsbury, Jonny Gomes, and Shane Victorino.
Cherington accepted the blame for a lack of depth in the starting rotation in 2012, according to Speier. However, he feels more confident about the team’s pitching heading into this season. The Red Sox will be stretching out Alfredo Aceves and Franklin Morales as starters in spring training in support of the projected rotation of Jon Lester, Clay Buchholz, John Lackey, Ryan Dempster, and Felix Doubront. Source: MLBTradeRumors.com
The consensus in the media is that the Red Sox are indeed set with their starting 5 as follows: Jon Lester, Clay Buchholz, John Lackey, Felix Doubront, and Ryan Dempster. Unnamed teams have inquired about both Franklin Morales and Andrew Bailey, but there are no rumors of note at this point. It will likely be a quiet conclusion to the offseason.
The Boston Red Sox today agreed to terms with right-handed pitchers Alfredo Aceves, Andrew Bailey, Daniel Bard and Joel Hanrahan, left-handed pitchers Andrew Miller and Franklin Morales, and outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury on one-year, non-guaranteed contracts for the 2013 season, thus avoiding salary ar...
The Red Sox would possibly give up Franklin Morales or Alfredo Aceves in a deal for Pirates closer Joel Hanrahan, according to Nick Cafardo of The Boston Globe. The Pirates, however, may be thinking more along the lines of Felix Doubront, which would be a deal-breaker, according to a major league source. Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com first reported Boston's interest in Hanrahan. Source: MLBTradeRumors.com

Larry Lucchino came out and said that the Red Sox will consider all possibilities this off-season and have not ruled out a complete roster overhaul (though this is unlikely). The Dodgers are interested in Adrian Gonzalez. Beckett is a good fit for the Nationals, should they follow through and shut down Strasburg. Carl Crawford is undergoing Tommy John, so he's likely to stay put. I'd list the following as untouchables, but this has not been confirmed by any Red Sox personnel: Franklin Morales, Dustin Pedroia, Will Middlebrooks, Clay Buchholz. A-Gon is also not likely to become available, though the Red Sox obviously are open to all ideas by placing Gonzalez on revocable waivers. Everyone else appears to have a long off-season ahead of them, with trade speculation going on with nearly every player.

Bobby Valentine enjoyed post game Q&A w press on immediate and longterm plans for pitcher Franklin Morales.
8 a.m. ET: The Red Sox are getting desperate. Boston (53-55) has regressed again, losing four games in a row -- coming off a four-game winning streak, no less. Now the Sox have fallen to a new low point as they try to salvage just one win from a four-game set against the lowly Minnesota Twins (47-60). Franklin Morales (2-2, 3.32 ERA) will be the Red Sox' best hope Sunday as he appears in a spot start. He has been great in his other appearances this season, going 2-1 with a 3.25 ERA in six games (five starts) between June 17 and July 13. This time, filling in for the injured Josh Beckett, he'll be opposed by Twins right-hander Nick Blackburn (4-6, 7.43), a contact pitcher who has struggled in 2012. He's yielded 17 home runs in 82 1/3 innings. Blackburn faced Boston on April 24 and lasted just three innings, giving up five earned runs. He comes into today's game having allowed 23 earned runs over his last five starts. First pitch is scheduled for 1:35 p.m. ET, but join us at 12:30 for Red Sox First Pitch an ...
