|Padilla leaves for Japan|
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(1/16/13) Right-hander Vicente Padilla, who spent the 2012 season with the Red Sox, signed a one-year deal with Japan's SoftBank Hawks Wednesday, according to MLB.com.
The Lineup: Adrian Beltre's blast wins it for Rangers, Red Sox melt down again
Yu Darvish and Zack Greinke went toe-to-toe in Anaheim, but the game was decided by the bullpen, as Adrian Beltre homered off of Ernesto Frieri to give the Rangers a win. Meanwhile, the Red Sox bullpen imploded once again at Tampa Bay.
Upton's walk-off homer lifts Rays
B.J. Upton hit a game-ending, three-run homer off Vicente Padilla, capping Tampa Bay's six-run ninth inning and lifting the Rays to a sorely needed 7-4 victory over the Boston Red Sox on Thursday night.
The Lineup: Floyd comes up big for White Sox; Brewers still scorching hot
It's time for The Lineup, starring Gavin Floyd, the Brewers' wheels, Tim Lincecum, Andy Pettitte, King Felix vs. the Orioles, the Cubs' loss of a fictional championship and the slowest pitches of the year.
R.I.P., 2012 Boston Red Sox
It may come as a shock to Red Sox fans, but the season -- and world -- didn't technically end months ago, instead, Bobby Valentine's club was on life support since before the All-Star break, playing through a coma and mercifully pulled the plug on Sunday.
Red Sox 8, Blue Jays 5
Mauro Gomez hit a tiebreaking, two-run triple in the ninth inning and the Boston Red Sox beat Toronto 8-5 on Friday night, snapping their six-game losing streak against the Blue Jays.
|Last season marked the first time since 2001 when Vicente Padilla had 10 or more relief appearances. and, for parts of 2012, it looked like the Red Sox had hit on something -- a new, late-career niche for the unpredictable righty. But, because this is Vicente Padilla, that sub-4.00 ERA in July ballooned to 4.50 by the end of the season, and Padilla, who struck out about a batter per inning, had his ninth straight season with an ERA above 4.00. As a starter, he didn't have enough strikeouts to make up for the high ERA and WHIP. As a reliever, he's still got the high ERA and WHIP and, despite a jump in K/9 rate, he's not getting nearly as many strikeouts as he did when he started. Padilla should be left undrafted in all formats. (Updated 1/9/13)|
