Video notes for Pitching Planner

-- Adam Wainwright is back as a starter, not a closer -- despite Jason Isringhausen being out for the year and perhaps his career
-- What's wrong with Josh Beckett? The Red Sox rotation is in shambles right now.
-- What is wrong with Jake Peavy, losing three of four starts? Can we trust this guy down the stretch?
-- Brett Myers a complete-game shutout last time out. What happened? He was getting hammered and back in the minors a month ago...

Video notes for Pitching Planner

-- Paul Byrd traded to the Red Sox. Is this a move because they fear the worst with Tim Wakefield?
-- David Price is not here Aug. 1 like you said. He has moved up to Triple-A but got beat up, what's up with that?
-- John Maine returned with five solid innings. Could the Mets really consider using him, Oliver Perez or Mike Pelfrey in the bullpen?
-- Who are some of the next pitchers to return from injury that we can pick up? Phil Hughes. Adam Wainwright. Joba Chamberlain. Carl Pavano. Andrew Miller. Bartolo Colon.
