I think &quot;monsters&quot; are a bit of a stretch. Beyond the 1st 4 spots in
the order (Pierre, Castillo, Cabrera, Delgado) its a bit of a drop off.
The pitching staff is pretty solid but your 2 aces are constantly
injured, and Al Leiter pitches a 3-2 count on everyone. Mota is an
inexperienced closer who I dont think will fair too well. Personally I
think the division will be won by either the Braves or the Mets...<br />

I'd be a little worried about Smoltz if I was a Braves fan.&nbsp; Not because of yeasterday, but because they are asking him to comeback and give them 200 innings when he hasn't pitched more then 80 the last four years.&nbsp; He turns 38 next month.&nbsp; I guess you can make the argument that he's rested his arm the last four years but I'm more a believer in that his arm is no longer conditioned to pitch that many innings.&nbsp; I wouldn't be surprised if he has a solid first half and then fades down the stretch.

<p>Our starters have looked OK and we would be 4 - 2 if it were not for
Tim FUCKING Worrell and Aaron Fultz. Aaron Fultz? This is going to be a
long season.</p><p>On a somewhat positive note, Pat Burrell has looked
good, Gavin Floyd looked really good today shutting down the Cardinals
(20 straight retired with THAT lineup!) and Ryan Madson has been solid.
Besides that....</p><p>This is going to be a long season. At least the
Red Sox will keep me halfway sane. It is nice to watch them but damn,

<p>I caught some of the Braves/Mets game on TBS Xtra last night and I
like the Cable Cam but the Catcher Cam? Good for replays but not for
the actual pitch. AND What is with the graphics on the field for the
lead man off first? I sure hope FOX don't see this. I am not exactly
crazy about the NFL graphics witht he big arrow telling you how far
there is to go for a 1st Down. The yellow line does that good enough,
no? It even took me a while to get used to that. SOME on screen
graphics are fine but I have a feeling there is going to be an
excessive use of them soon and it will get really annoying to watch a
game.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>In any sport.&nbsp;</p>

Yeah, yeah, I know it's early, but already this season, the Orioles have played the Yanks 6 times.&nbsp; They've taken five out of six (which equals their entire win total against the Yankees last year), including a 3 game sweep finished off today.&nbsp; Overall, the O's are 8-4.&nbsp; Right now, it's good to be a Baltimore fan.&nbsp; How quickly will our bubble get burst?

If they get anything resembling decent seasons out of their starters there's is no reason for them not to be in the hunt for the Wild Card (if not the division) by September.&nbsp; They hit&nbsp;like the Red Sox &amp; Angels, they have a spark-plug kinda guy in Roberts, their closer is a bad mother, and they play in a fun stadium that favors their offense-heavy approach.&nbsp; Oh yeah, and if they are fighting for a playoff spot against the Yanks, their owner HATES them (or specifically George) enough &amp; is has PLENTY of money to go out &amp; get anything they might need at the deadline.

<p>I guess cause I am down in the Baltimore/DC area so often, I can't
help but feel good for the state of the Orioles and the Nationals. Been
going to O's games since I was a kid and looking forward to seeing some
Nats games this year as well. Not saying I am a huge fan but just a
casual observer. I may even get me a hat to add to the hat collection.
It is nice to watch the games when I am down there. I'm down there so
much I should get my own place. </p><p>With the Orioles, any team who
can beat up the Yankees makes me quite happy. As far as the Nats go, I
have always been a closet Expos fan and I really just like their team.
So far so good for them both.<br />

<p>Speaking of the Orioles...here's something interesting I picked up on my ESPN Insider to-day..</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p><font style="font-size: 9px" face="Verdana">quote: </font>&nbsp;<em>Apr. 19 -</em> According to the Baltimore Sun, the Orioles may make a pitch for first baseman Todd Helton. Baltimore would like to take Helton and his monstrous contract (an average of $15.7 million a year through 2011) off the hands of the Rockies &ndash; if and when Colorado raises the white flag. <p>&nbsp;</p><p>One potential trade offer could include Jay Gibbons, outfielder Nick Markakis, starting pitcher Hayden Penn and lefty reliever John Parrish. The O's might even throw in Sidney Ponson, with cash. </p><p>But before any deal could become reality, two major obstacles must be overcome, the Denver Post reports. One is a complete no-trade clause in Helton's contract, meaning Helton would have to sign off on the deal; the other is whether&nbsp;the Rockies would part with their franchise player. </p><p>&nbsp;</p><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v53/monster6sixty6/guests/elm_sig.gif" border="0" /> <strong>....We haven't seen the sun since '71</strong>Thanks Monsterone!!

<p>Well, the second one would be no&nbsp;big deal...I mean Helton's probably super tired of losing and rebuilding in Colorado....</p><p>But&nbsp;does anyone really want to play for the Orioles?&nbsp; I mean this seriously, not as a shot at B-Mo, but they get turned down by huge free agent names it seems like every year, i mean the real superstars, not declining guys like Sosa, but guys like Pavano and Vlad Guererro...Hell didn't they offer Vlad more money than the Angels?</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>And the Orioles need pitching more than they need Todd Helton....</p>

<p>Excellent game for the O's - A 1 run complete game from the always inconsistent Sidney Ponson (no hitter through 5) and 2&nbsp;homers from Sosa (sorry Mojo)&nbsp;beating Roy Halladay and the Jays 7-1.&nbsp; It's seemed for a while that every time the O's win, the Yankees lose, and vice versa.&nbsp; Sadly, not today, as the Yanks finally got a win against the Rangers.</p><p>12-7 -- Orioles Magic!</p><img src="http://scripts.cgispy.com/image.cgi?u=mikeyboy" border="0" /><br /><a href="http://www.osirusonline.com/ronfez.htm" target="blank">Ron &amp; Fez Show Log</a>; Daily News Scratch N' Match is the Devil<br /><a href="http://www.radiobbq.net/" target="blank">The Music Mikey Likes Show on RadioBBQ, weekdays 11:00 am - 1:00 pm</a><br />Now with new <a href="http://www.ronfez.net/mediastorage/mikey/mikeyshowtheme.mp3" target="blank">theme song</a> by BoBoGolem

<p>Amazing
stat on Rafael Palmeiro (http://mlb.mlb.com/NASApp/mlb/mlb/news/mlb_news.jsp?ymd=20050226&amp;content_id=951641&amp;vkey=s pt2005news&amp;fext=.jsp)</p><p></p>
<p>
Baseball fans will remember exactly how many home runs Palmeiro hit and
where he stands on the all-time list. After he retires, he is expected
to be just the fifth player with 3,000 hits and 500 home runs. </p>

&quot;For me, it's like mind-boggling, man,&quot; he said. &quot;Willie Mays, Hank
Aaron, Babe Ruth -- those are icons. Those are the guys when I was a
kid that were baseball guys.
<p>&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Actually according to Baseball almanac, its these guys</p>

<p>Here's the latest from ye olde rumor mill:</p><p>&nbsp;</p>Orioles dealing for Burnett <div />The Marlins last week approached the Orioles about a six-player deal that would send right-hander A.J. Burnett to Baltimore and Jorge Julio to Miami, The Miami Herald reports. <p>The proposal: Marlins trade Double-A OF Eric Reed, OF Juan Encarnacion and Burnett to Baltimore for a starting pitcher (Daniel Cabrera or Hayden Penn) and an outfielder, most likely Larry Bigbie. </p><p>Talks reportedly are on hold.</p><p>&nbsp;</p>Both the Seattle Times and the Seattle Post-Intelligencer are reporting that the Mariners could be close to dealing Bret&nbsp;Boone to the Padres. They have been in need of a second baseman without Mark Loretta, who isn't expected back until mid-August. Boone, who is in the final year of his contract, grew up in the San Diego area and played for the Padres in 2000 before coming to Seattle. <p>The Times reported that Seattle GM Bill Bavasi and San Diego GM Kevin Towers spoke for a considerable amount of time over the weekend, most likely regarding Boone. One Seattle source told the P-I a deal could happen before Tuesday's series opener in Oakland, although another Seattle official said the two sides weren't close to a deal. </p><p>Boone's replacement at second base in Seattle would be rookie Jose Lopez, who started four games last week. But if no deal is done, Lopez, 21, will likely be sent back to Triple-A Tacoma so he can play everyday.</p><p>&nbsp;</p>Extension or trade? <div />Peter Gammons reports that the A's will trade&nbsp;Mark Kotsay to the Cubs or the Yankees in the right deal if a contract extension doesn't get done. <p>According to the San Jose Mercury News, Kotsay said there is no deadline for agreeing to a contract extension with the A's. Kotsay has a $6.5 million player option for next season and wants to remain in Oakland. The Red Sox are another possible bidder.</p><p>&nbsp;</p>Cubs say no <div />The Cubs rejected a trade in which they would have sent three prospects to the Rockies for center fielder Preston Wilson, The Sporting News reports. <p>Baltimore is among the other teams that Colorado has spoken to about Wilson, 31, who becomes a free agent after this season and is owed about $8 million this year. </p><p>&nbsp;</p>A Bronx tale? <div />The Yankees are in desperate need of some pitching help, and Colorado's Jason Jennings might be their best option, The New York Post reports. After going 1-6 to open the season, Jennings (4-8, 5.64 ERA) has pitched better of late &ndash; boosting his trade value and driving up the Rockies' already high asking price. <div /><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Lilly on the move?</p><div />With Orlando Hernandez's durability in question, the White Sox have taken a look at Blue Jays left-hander Ted Lilly, the Chicago Tribune reports. <p>According to the Toronto Sun, Red Sox assistant GM Bill Lajoie also has been scouting Lilly.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><div /><div /><div /><div /><div /><div /><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v53/monster6sixty6/guests/elm_sig.gif" border="0" /> <strong>....We haven't seen the sun since '71</strong>Thanks Monsterone!!

<p>Lots o' deals to-day....</p><p>Padres got Ponson for Nevin, and picked up Joe Randa. However, Nevin's got one of those &quot;no trade&quot; thingies, and i hear one of the teams on his list he doesn't want to go to is B-Mo (I dont blame him)</p><p>Here's the latest from the Rumor Mill</p><div class="bi">Randa paves way for Mueller</div><div><span style="font-style: italic">Jul 23</span> - The Padres' acquisition of Joe Randa on Saturday might increase the Twins' interest in Mueller, a low-salary veteran who is solid defensively and would be an impact hitter at the Metrodome, Peter Gammons reports. Minnesota preferred Miller to Randa, anyway. J.C. Romero has been the name discussed in the potential swap. <p>According to the Boston Globe, the Twins also are considering Kevin Youkilis, and the deal could be expanded to include a Minnesota starting pitcher.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><div class="bi">Burnett still stuck in Florida</div><div><span style="font-style: italic">Jul 23</span> - If Phil Nevin agrees to be traded to the Orioles, the Marlins will have to find another destination for Burnett, Peter Gammons reports. Florida insists on attaching Mike Lowell to a deal for their coveted right-hander, but the Orioles would no longer consider taking Lowell's salary. <p>The Marlins will likely shift their attention to proposed deal with the White Sox (Jose Contreras, Brandon McCarthy)and Red Sox (Bronson Arroyo and pitching prospect Anibel Sanchez, who threw a 1-hitter in his third Double-A start). </p><p>ESPN The Magazine's Buster Olney reports that the Marlins-White Sox deal and could expand to include Damaso Marte going to Florida, with Chicago getting another player in return. </p><p>Team officials were working on a three-way deal involving the Red Sox and Twins. In that scenario, the Marlins would receive pitchers Bronson Arroyo and Joe Mays. Bill Mueller and prospects would go to the Twins, and the Red Sox would get Lowell, Burnett and J.C. Romero. But that deal looks like it is dead because the Sox aren't keen on taking Lowell, and the Marlins aren't crazy about Mays</p><p>&nbsp;</p></div></div>

<p>Well, Nevin killed the O's deal...sucks for the Padres, cause they really needed someone to eat up the innings Adam Eaton isn't going to be able to pitch...</p><p>Here's the latest from the ESPN Insider Rumor Mill</p><p>&nbsp;</p><div><span style="font-style: italic">Jul 26</span> - According to The New York Post, the Mets are interested in Rangers second baseman Alfonso Soriano. Texas has let it be known that they want Jose Reyes as part of any deal, and also crave outfield prospect Lastings Milledge, but that price is too high for the Mets. <p>Soriano is making $7.5 million this year and will be eligible for an arbitration raise after the season. He will be a free agent after 2006. </p><p>Right now, a trade for Soriano appears to be a longshot. Not only would the Rangers' price have to come down, but also the Mets would have to determine whether Soriano would be worth the cost it would take to keep him for next season. After arbitration, Soriano would command approximately $9-10 million next season.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><div><span style="font-style: italic">Jul 26</span> - One of the Mets' main targets for bullpen help remains Devil Rays closer Danys Baez, The New York Post reports. Tampa Bay's asking price for Baez is very high, although Mets Double-A right-hander Yusmeiro Petit could be in the mix. <p>Baez, a 27-year-old righty, is making $3.5 million this year and has a $4 million team option for next season or a $1 million buyout. </p><p>&nbsp;</p><div><span style="font-style: italic">Jul 26</span> - In talks with the Yankees about a trade that might involve Randy Winn for pitcher Carl Pavano, the Mariners are believed to have discussed including a starting pitcher in the deal, the Seattle Times reports. New York is seeking mound help, as well as a replacement for center fielder Bernie Williams. <p>The Yankees seemingly expressed no interest in left-hander Jamie Moyer, so Seattle might be willing to deal right-hander Joel Pineiro, who might thrive with the increased run support the Yankees could give him. </p><p>&nbsp;</p><p><span style="font-style: italic">Jul 26</span> - The Pirates won't hesitate to deal closer Jose Mesa -- if the right deal presents itself. According to The New York Post, the Bucs are ideally looking for position players in return. Mesa is earning $2 million this year and has a club option for next year worth $4 million with a $500,000 buyout. </p><p>&nbsp;</p><p><span style="font-style: italic">Jul 26</span> - The Marlins continue to express interest in Pirates left-hander Mark Redman, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports. A key part of the 2003 Marlins, Redman could replace A.J. Burnett in the rotation -- if Burnett is traded. &quot;I had a good relationship with the ownership and with Jack McKeon,&quot; Redman told the newspaper. &quot;I wouldn't be opposed to going back.&quot; </p><p>&nbsp;</p><div><span style="font-style: italic">Jul 25</span> - Griffey's name continues to come up in trade rumors, but he most likely has no chance of being traded, reports Jayson Stark. <p>Harold Reynolds, speculated Sunday that Griffey would be a fit with the Yankees, Mets or Astros. But the three teams don't appears to be interested. </p><p>To make any deal possible, the Reds would have to eat a lot of Junior's salary. He makes a base of $12.5 million through 2008 with $6.5 million more a year in deferred money, with no interest until the contract expires after the 2008 season. Then he makes $6.5 million a year through 2025 at 4 percent compound interest.</p></div></div></div></div>

<p>Here's the latest from the ESPN Insider Rumor Mill</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Soriano to Twins?</p><p><span style="font-style: italic">Jul 30</span> - ESPN.com's Jayson Stark reports the Twins are making a big push to acquire Alfonso Soriano. Rumored names heading to Texas: J.C. Romero, Kyle Lohse and Bret Boone. Although Rangers officials have been downplaying the odds of trading Soriano, an official of one interested team isn't convinced. </p><p>&quot;I still think this talk that they're not trading him is a bunch of baloney designed to keep the price up,&quot; he said. &quot;I still think they have to trade him, for the best pitching deal they can make. If they keep him, who's going to pitch? I know Chan Ho Park is no big loss. But who are they going to replace him with -- John Wasdin?&quot; </p><p>The Cubs also continue to check in on Soriano, according to Stark. But one baseball man who has been speaking with the Cubs says they get the impression that Texas would rather trade Soriano to either the Mets or Twins than to the Cubs. </p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Manny Deal Dead</p><p><span style="font-style: italic">Jul 30</span> - Jayson Stark reports the proposed three-team deal that would've sent Manny Ramirez to the Mets isn't expected to happen. The Red Sox, Mets and Devil Rays were involved in trade discussions that would've involved 10 players, but the sides were unable to agree on a deal. </p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>AJ Burnett Staying Put</p><p>*&gt;<span style="font-style: italic">Jul 30</span> - Remember when A.J. Burnett was THE hottest trade commodity around? Well, Jayson Stark reports that one team that checked in with Florida on Saturday reported there is now a &quot;zero percent chance&quot; of Burnett being dealt.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Assorted Yankees News</p><p><span style="font-style: italic">Jul 29</span> - According to Newsday, the Yankees aren't done dealing and are trying to acquire some pitching. But they have yet to find a good match with Pittsburgh (Mark Redman) or Seattle (Gil Meche), and Cleveland (Kevin Millwood) won't help a fellow American League team as long as the Tribe are still in the playoff hunt. </p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Millar to Twins?</p><div><span style="font-style: italic">Jul 28</span> - The Red Sox are talking about expanding a deal with the Twins -- and Kevin Millar would be involved, along with Bill Mueller, the Boston Herald reports. The Sox want starting pitcher Joe Mays and reliever J.C. Romero for Millar and Mueller, but the Twins aren't as willing to part with Mays as they are Kyle Lohse. </div><div /><div /><div /><div /><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v53/monster6sixty6/guests/elm_sig.gif" border="0" /> <strong>....We haven't seen the sun since '71</strong>Thanks Monsterone!!

I don't know where to find a link (of Powell) and I'm glad because I won't watch it
again. I could have swore he snapped his forearm on that pitch when I
first saw it. Apparently he tore up his elbow really bad which sucks
because he just got back from having Tommy John last year. Seeing the
pain on his face as he walked off the field was horrible. <br />

<p>Here's one for the echo chamber...</p><p>So the Cubs drive me nuts losing 8 straight, including getting swept by the Phillies and the fucking Mets...and then come back and take 3 of 4 from the Cardinals, wrapping it up 5-4 at Wrigley tonight.&nbsp; Talk about peaks and valleys...</p><p>Technically, there's still a shot, though I'm incredibly wary.&nbsp; They're at the point the Astros were last year, and we all saw what they did.&nbsp; If the Cubs offense continues to gel like it has during this series, they have a real shot, since their starters are typically good at keeping the opposing teams to 3-4 runs or less.&nbsp; Between Lee, Aramis Ramirez, Nomar (hitting over .350 since coming off the DL) and Patterson (looking good since coming back from AAA this week, batting near .400 since Tuesday, stealing bases and beating throws, getting walked and belting a 2 run HR tonight), they finally have a potential threat of a lineup.&nbsp; I really like Matt Lawton as the leadoff (batting about .275, also with a HR tonight), and Todd Walker can pull it clutch when needed.&nbsp; Michael Barett is hitting at about .290 and taking walks left and right...and with guys like Neifi Perez, Jose Mascias and Todd Hollandsworth back on the bench where they're VERY strong (Check Jose's game-winning 2 run single tonight and Todd's chopper single), the bats are suddenly looking dangerous.</p><p>And man, tonight was a PERFECT example of how they can make the bullpen work.&nbsp; Mark Prior going 6 full innings with 3 runs and 7 K's...then Kerry Wood coming in and DOMINATING as a reliever for 2 innings.&nbsp; I was very nervous about Wood having to come in as the setup guy, but he's been beautiful.&nbsp; He averages a walk per outing, which is worrisome, but his fastballs are brutal, and he's shutting down innings with less than a dozen pitches on a regular basis.&nbsp; He had 4 K's tonight (almost all hovering right around 100 MPH), and shut down the top of the Cards' order in the 7th with just 9 pitches.&nbsp; While I'd like to see him get the cleanup surgery and start hopefully healthy, he's showing some serious closer skills in his 5 relief appearances so far.</p><p>And speaking of the closer, Ryan Dempster is a heart attack closer if there ever was one.&nbsp; The hasn't had a 1-2-3 9th inning in weeks, but he just pulled his 16th out of 18th save tonight.&nbsp; It may be nerve wracking, but he gets it done.&nbsp; Seeing Prior then Wood them him is damn impressive.&nbsp; If Scott Williamson can stay consistent and Ohman a decent lefty specialist, the Cubbies may have solved their bullpen troubles for the time being, setting them up for a playoff run if it miracuously appears.</p><p>So, yeah, talking to myself here, but damn, it felt good to see them win this series against those fucking Trash Birds.</p><p>If they can keep this up and either take 2 of 3 against the Astros starting tomorrow, or, dare I say it, SWEEP 'em, then I'll seriously buy a drive for the WC.&nbsp; At least Glendon Rusch is back as the starter for Rich Hill tomorrow.&nbsp; As a reliever, he was hovering around 5.00 for an ERA, but stayed right around 3.00 as a starter.&nbsp; He's shown he can go the distance a la Zambrano.</p><p>Here we go Cubbies, here we go!!!</p><p>*Clap-clap*</p><img src="http://scripts.cgispy.com/image.cgi?u=TheMojoPin" border="0" /> <br />Too drunk to dream... &lt;&lt; Champagne for my real friends, and real pain for my sham friends. &gt;&gt; &quot;You can tell some lies about the good times we've had, but I've kissed your mother twice...and now I'm working on your dad...&quot;

<p>To say that not making the playoffs is better than losing in the

<p>Of course making the playoffs is ideal.&nbsp; But when you do it 13 times in a row and can only seal the deal ONCE, you gotta start asking what the fuck is going wrong.&nbsp; How many times do you need to run completely out of gas within sight of the finish line before thinking something isn't working?&nbsp; The Braves are a VERY good team...their handicap is that during that time, they've only once been a GREAT team.&nbsp; What's happening the other dozen seasons?</p><p>And I'll stand by what I said.&nbsp; I do prefer getting pissed over a team that blows it over a season with a bunch of ups and downs than one that'll cruise along no problem and then chokes without fail in the final stretch.&nbsp; Where's the fucking fun in that?</p>

<p>Zambrano was PISSED barely missing that 3-2 pitch.&nbsp; You take him out when he gets like that and he's pitched 144 pitches already.&nbsp; They guy is too hotheaded to leave in that late and that angry...he would've tossed nothing but dead center heaters trying to strike 'em out swinging or maybe even plunked a guy.&nbsp; And when you have a closer with Dempster's record this year (18 out of 19 save efforts), you give it to him.&nbsp; Neifi Perez is more at fault than anyone for screwing up a routine double play resulting in NO outs.</p><p>Ah well, at least they win it, 4-2.&nbsp; Zambrano pitched a helluva game, striking out 10 and belting a HR himself.&nbsp; Nomar rocked another homer, but left early...fortunately just with a stiff lower back.&nbsp; Day off tomorrow, so let him rest up, and probably sit him on Friday, too.</p>

So the Blue Jays finally get national coverage with an ESPN game (first of the year) and everyone is shocked that they can play.&nbsp; In fact, (bc this is probably the first time anybody at ESPN watched a game without the Sox, Yanks or Cards) the Jays finally got on the web gem section of ESPN with four total and the top three.&nbsp; Welcome to the whole fucking league ESPN!&nbsp; Your overall coverage fucking blows!!!!!!&nbsp;&nbsp;It's&nbsp;shocking&nbsp;that Wells, Hudson and Johnson&nbsp;are&nbsp;amazing&nbsp;to watch in the field, along with&nbsp;all the exciting young talent on this team.&nbsp; And there are a lot of teams like this in the league, but we'll never see them.&nbsp; The Brewers are one exciting up and coming team along&nbsp;with&nbsp;the Indians.&nbsp; For shame, FOR SHAME!&nbsp;

And good point with the Brewers...they have the makings of a VERY good team over the next few years.&nbsp; If the Cubs can get consistent and the Astros stay hot throughout the season, the NL Central might actually turn interesting instead of ye olde usual Cardinal blowout.

<p>Mundo's right on with his post.&nbsp; BC, the big difference is that the Rangers were in second place in the West at the time and ahead of Oakland and in the wildcard hunt (they were right on that line of do we dump salary or pick up players to make a run at this).&nbsp; Now Texas is clearly out of it in both&nbsp;races,&nbsp;and may just be in it to dump the salary since they don't seem to have that much of a future together.&nbsp; I'm sure they might still get something for him and surely will try, but it won't even be as much as the Twins offered back before the trade deadline.&nbsp; </p><p>If anything, it clearly blocks the bigger market teams all around them in the wildcard race.&nbsp; With the DH in the AL, I wouldn't rule out anybody at least thinking it over.</p>

Let's take this for what it is, two assholes in a fight.&nbsp; I think Bradley's the bigger asshole for playing the race card when it's obvious he's just trying to deflect the shit he was getting about his lax play.&nbsp; I guess MLB is a racist organization based on the way Bradley was talking about the 9% black athletes in the league.&nbsp; Well I've got news buddy, white isn't the majority either!&nbsp; And guess what, I don't care who the fuck plays baseball, just give me the best players, period.&nbsp;

numbers and how a lot of his career numbers coincide with certain dates
and he obviously sat next to me in Washington [before Congress] and
lied, so I don't know there's any way to prove that anything he did was
not under the influence of performance-enhancing drugs.&quot;</p><p>...</p>
<p>
&quot;I think growing up, being a fan of the game, watching Steve Howe,
watching Darryl Strawberry, watching the things that happened to Doc
Gooden. And stuff like that I think I had just gotten to the point
where I finally realized that liars and cheaters and criminals exist in
all professions and baseball doesn't absolve us from being human beings
and we're going to have the same kind of people that play this game
that do anything else in the world.&quot;

<p>
Schilling said he wouldn't have anything to say to Palmeiro if he saw him, since they had never played together.
</p>
<p>&quot;My hope is that Raffy does whatever he can possibly do in his
position to help further the message that baseball needs to send to
kids and to people. Whether he's going to be able to do that, given
what he's done, to me is doubtful. He has no credibility, I don't
think, in that area. I think that's gonna be a tough one. I just hope
his life gets righted and he does the right thing.&quot;</p><p>No
matter how much I agree with what he says, once it comes out of his
mouth I completely disagree with it. I think he'd sell his own mother
down the river if it'd get him 15 minutes on the air.</p><p>As for the
Bradley-Kent thing, maybe I'm going by stereotypes, maybe I'm
prejudging, but I would not be at all surprised if the racist stuff was
completely true. It's asshole vs. asshole, but it's a grade A#1

<p>So Maddux pitches ANOTHER complete game...the guy is 39, yet keeps the Marlins to just 2 runs and 5 hits for 9 full innings...and the Cubs STILL lose it 2-1.&nbsp; By my count, this shouldn't have been Maddux's 15th win, this would have been his 16TH if the rest of his team hadn't managed to blow games where he kept the opposing team to 3 runs or less and 5 hits or less for at LEAST 7 innings!&nbsp; Absolutely inexcusable...this team simply cannot play fundamental baseball.&nbsp; They live and die by the longball, and that's it.&nbsp; Nobody who can get on base can steal or is told to steal, and the guys that CAN steal either aren't being allowed to play because they're rookies or they can't get on base in the first place.</p><p>Dusty Baker can't manage his way out of a paper bag, yet it's looking all too clear Jim Hendry doesn't want to have to buy out yet another high priced manager, so the Cubs'll have Dustbag through next season.&nbsp; I almost WANT them to fall into last place so it hopefully smacks the owners into gear into doing SOMETHING.&nbsp; Looking for new management and coaching, upping the budget...ever since 2003, Cubs fans are sick of the &quot;lovable loser&quot; tag.&nbsp; That shit isn't going to fly anymore.&nbsp; Watching the last few home games, I'm actually seeing large gaps in the stands at Wrigley...something unheard of in the last 20 years, especially in late summer.&nbsp; For better or for worse, people not pumping money into the Tribune through ticket sales no matter what the team's record might finally force the Trib to seriously re-evaluate how they want to run this team.</p><p>And yeah, I'll never stop being a fan, but come on.&nbsp; Quit dicking me around.&nbsp; Don't make the same mistake LAST off-season and not replace the guys you lost or where you have holes.&nbsp; As of right now, the ONLY guys who should be &quot;safe&quot; are Derrek Lee, Carlos Zambrano, Mark Prior, Aramis Ramirez, Greg Maddux and Kerry Wood (as a CLOSER a la Smoltz).&nbsp; Everyone else should be potential trade bait if necessary.&nbsp; They need a REAL leadoff hitter, at least one more all-star starter, a solid reliever (mayber switch current closer Ryan Dempster to the setup man spot in addition) and at least two GOOD outfielders, both on D and behind the plate.&nbsp; SERIOUS rebuilding needs to be done starting NOW.</p><p>Let Aramis stay out the rest of the season and heal his legs.&nbsp; He's been playing injured for months.&nbsp; With the post-season all but impossible.&nbsp; Let him heal.&nbsp; Let Wood get the cleanup surgery he needs first week of September as planned and give him time, then do ANYTHING possible to have him come back as a closer.&nbsp; A $10 million closer is fine by me if he can be as lights out as he's been during most of his relief appearances.&nbsp; Again, look at Smoltz.&nbsp; Spent over 3 years as a fantastic closer, and then when he was healthy, went back to the starting lineup and is STILL amazing!&nbsp; Nomar I actually wouldn't mind see back, but at 2nd and with no more than a $4-6 million deal (with incentive options if necessary).&nbsp; Sit him NOW and let him heal.&nbsp; His hitting since coming off the DL has been close to .400, but he's still too dicey on the field, especially since that pitch he took between the shoulders.&nbsp; He's made it very clear he likes the team and the city and he wants to stay.&nbsp; Get him cheap and let him heal NOW.</p><p>Let the rookies PLAY.&nbsp; Look around the league at teams trusting the younger players and having it WORK.&nbsp; Again, LOOK AT THE BRAVES.&nbsp; Let Matt Murton play LF and hit leadoff when the rosters expand in September.&nbsp; Play Ronny Cedeno at SS.&nbsp; Bring up Felix Pie in a week two and let him play center.&nbsp; See what the kids can do!&nbsp; Stop saddling the team with BENCH guys like Jose Macias and Todd Hollandsworth and look t the future!</p><p>GAH.</p><p>Alright, I'm done.&nbsp; Sorry about the rant and the size of the post.&nbsp; Just had to vent...</p>

<p>Not until his own fans can spell his first name correctly.</p><p>Cubs grant me my wish and slap the Marlins, 14-3.&nbsp; Lee rocked 2 solo HR's, putting him at 39 for the year with 94 RBI's so far and a .349 average.&nbsp; Combine that with his fantastic defense, it's a damn shame he's not gonna get the MVP just for being on a crappy team.&nbsp; If anything, it should make him MORE likely for singlehandedly carrying everyone else on the roster for most of the season.</p>

Honestly, any one of the three deserve it.&nbsp; They're just that good behind the plate and on the field.&nbsp; The only thing I'd say holds Jones back is his overall hitting...no question he has the power, but he isn't as all around as Lee or Pujols.&nbsp; And between Lee and Pujols, I'd say Lee is the better fielder...obviously, I'm biased, but any of these three guys winning it is fine by me.

Jones is never going to win a batting title but if he wins the HR title
(he's leading) and the RBI title (second to Pujols right now i
think) it would be hard to ignore him. Two of the triple crown
categories and of course the eventual gold glove. <br />

<p>Hey Hey!!</p><p>I made Buster Olney's MLB Blog on ESPN.com...</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p><strong>From The Readers</strong><br />How can you not mention the Nats in your list of teams that can look on this year as a huge success even if they don't make the playoffs? Drawing over two million fans? Being in the middle of a playoff race with no owner and kids in the bullpen? (<strong>Chad Cordero</strong>, <strong>Luis Ayala</strong>, <strong>Gary Majewski</strong>?) The emergence of <strong>John Patterson</strong>? The steadiness of <strong>Esteban Loaiza</strong>? The surprise great pitching of <strong>John Halama</strong>? The emergence of <strong>Nick Johnson</strong> as one of the best clutch hitters in the game? All this doesn't bode well?<br />-- Ryan, West Greenbelt, Md. </p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Here was his response...</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Got more e-mails on the omission of the Nationals than any other team, by far, and in retrospect, I probably should've written about this in Sunday's piece. Many of you pointed out all of the great things with the franchise this year: Getting some stability, playing to some buzz in Washington, etc. But here's the problem, in the big picture -- the TV deal made in 2005 to placate Orioles owner <strong>Peter Angelos</strong> is devastating, and going forward, it's going to be a huge impediment. I suspect that 2005 for the Nationals might be like the first days of a college kid getting a credit card (and I say this with experience, having once been enthralled by the acquisition of a credit card): Having all this stuff is neat, it's fun, but he/she is not really worried about the 25 percent interest rate or having to pay down, and the bill looms. </p><p>The team's ability to compete, beyond this season, is going to come down to the spirit of charity by the new ownership: If the new folks aren't willing to absorb some major fiscal losses, I wonder how in the world they're going to compete, given the setup. (And, by the way, executives with other teams say their farm system is scorched-earth barren, which is not a good sign for a club that might have financial worries). </p><p>The Nationals, for me, are kind of in a special category. I agree with many of you that the Nationals are one of the best <em>stories</em> of this summer, but given the criterion, I don't think this year really serves them to build forward because of the parameters thrust onto the team: 2005 might be remembered, in part, as the year that the franchise had one arm tied behind its back competitively. Hope it turns out that I'm just a Cassandra on this issue, seeing a problem that's not really there.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p><br />&nbsp;</p><img src="http://scripts.cgispy.com/image.cgi?u=BigCoop" border="0" /><br />Powered by <a href="http://www.cgispy.com/">CGISpy.com</a> <strong>....

<p>Hey Ryan, I mean Mudo, could you link the original list of teams this guy selected.&nbsp; I'd like to see his thoughts on other teams and see how he judged them all.&nbsp; </p><p>And Hawk, imagine how empty the Yank stands would be if they didn't field an all-star team every year.&nbsp; Their attendance wasn't that great even playing in fucking NYC before their run, so big fucking deal.&nbsp; To me, the wealth of the league is so thinly spread that the league as a whole blows right now.&nbsp; I know it's the same old rant, but the owners need to stand up to George and state the case that the league as a whole is the product, not the well being of the fucking Yankees.&nbsp; Why is it they can't look at the NFL and understand this?&nbsp; Small market, big market, it doesn't matter who makes the big game.&nbsp; I'm sure it lowers rev a little when a small market team makes it, but overall the league is more profitable due to the fact that all teams are just that and in great shape.&nbsp; Baseball is the total opposite.&nbsp; I'd love for there to be a huge shakeup of the league, and soon.&nbsp; If not, they'll be losing a lot more fans, myself included.&nbsp; </p><p>I do appreciate dynasties, like the Patriots, something to be respected and marveled at.&nbsp; Yet I have no respect for monopolies that should win year after year like the Yankees and recently teams like Boston too.&nbsp; I do respect individuals on these teams like Mo, Jeter, Ortiz and others, but overall they are surrounded by so much talent that they don't have to perform, as there is always another all-star behind them.&nbsp; Of course Jeter has a history of great plays at big times, so did every other Yankee, they're&nbsp;always in those big games.&nbsp; Hell, Soriano, Sojo, Nelson, Wettland, Tino, Boone all have big plays too.&nbsp; You have to get there to get your name out there.&nbsp; And the only way to get there&nbsp;recently is to join one of the over the top franchises or have a great, huge and lucky year with a lesser team.&nbsp; There are tons of great players who would outperform even the sacred Jeter if they were presented all the opportunity he was.&nbsp; While Yankee fans are spoiled, the rest of us are not even an afterthought of the league.&nbsp; MLB will take a huge hit if this and the steroid scandal continue to grow.&nbsp; I'm so sick of both situations.&nbsp; And how long will MLB dick around with the Expo/National situation?&nbsp; Fix it for fucks sake!</p>

<p>Hey Ryan, I mean Mudo, could you link the original list of teams this guy selected.&nbsp; I'd like to see his thoughts on other teams and see how he judged them all.&nbsp; </p><p></p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>It was on Insider, Spoon...lemme see If I can dig it up...</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Here's a thing on the Jays:</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Talked to <strong>J.P. Ricciardi</strong>, the general manager of the Blue Jays, a few days ago, and he was unequivocal: If <strong>Roy Halladay</strong> hadn't gotten hurt, Toronto would be leading the AL East. Considering all of the pitching problems that the Yankees and Red Sox are having, it's hard to argue with him. </p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Here's the other thing...</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Only eight teams will make the playoffs, and as of Sunday morning, 15 teams have a legitimate shot; seven will go home. For some of them, however, 2005 will be viewed as a year of progress no matter whether they play a post-season game. </p><p>Ten organizations which will view this season as a success, no matter what happens in the last five weeks: </p><p><strong>1. Atlanta Braves</strong><br />They're leading their division and, somehow, they've managed to develop the next generation of young players -- Jeff Francoeur, Brian McCann, Ryan Langerhans, Kelly Johnson, Wilson Betemit and Kyle Davies. Can't get much better than that. </p><p><strong>2. Oakland Athletics</strong><br />After trading All-Star pitchers Tim Hudson and Mark Mulder, Oakland general manager Billy Beane didn't know when the competitive transition would come, whether it would be May or September of 2005, or sometime in 2006. Rich Harden has become a dominant presence in the AL, Danny Haren and Joe Blanton developed into formidable pitchers in their first full seasons in the league, Huston Street already has ascended into the role of closer, and Bobby Crosby, Nick Swisher and Dan Johnson have all quickly established themselves. A remarkable turnaround. </p><p><strong>3. Chicago White Sox</strong><br />There's a good chance they'll finish the season with the AL's best record, as Jon Garland stepped up, Freddy Garcia justified the White Sox investment in him, and Mark Buehrle jumped into Cy Young caliber. Rival executives say the White Sox farm system is diminished, but no matter how deep Chicago plays into October, the organization has gained credibility this year. </p><p><strong>4. Cleveland Indians</strong><br />Remember when the Indians planned to start the season with Grady Sizemore in the minor leagues and Juan Gonzalez as a regular? Remember when Jhonny Peralta hit near the bottom of the lineup? Remember when the Indians' bullpen was a joke? Cleveland just keeps getting better and better, and while the relief corps does have some age and might need some patching and pasting, the Indians should continue to be playoff contenders for years to come -- and, perhaps, could make the post-season this year. </p><p><strong>5. New York Mets</strong><br />The progress started with the signings of Pedro Martinez and Carlos Beltran, an outlay of $170 million that started to change the perception of the team. Now the electric David Wright -- the Mets' answer to Derek Jeter -- looks like he's going to be a megastar, with 39 RBI in just 148 at-bats since the All-Star break, and Jose Reyes is getting better. The Mets will have a pitching quandary as the organization moves forward, because the starting rotation has a lot of age and individually, there might not that much time left to take advantage of the talents of Pedro Martinez and Tom Glavine. </p><p>But no matter if the Mets make the playoffs or not, this has been a season of progress, with the culture of the team shifting. Chatting the other day, Wright told how the Mets have taken to a pregame ritual that might seem more natural for a college football or basketball team: The players gather and begin to prepare mentally for the game, some of them dancing, most of them bouncing around. &quot;It's great for comradery,&quot; said Wright. &quot;We're starting to put it all together.&quot; </p><p>He

When the hell did Josh Beckett get fat?!<br><br><IMG SRC="http://homepage.mac.com/hawkdaddy/.Pictures/beckett.jpg"><br><br>I was on MLB.com and I saw this picture come up with the caption, "Marlins Looking For Beckett To Bounce Back." I don't get it. Suddenly, or at least in that picture, it appears he's turned into David Wells. The Josh Beckett I remember looked like this:<br><br><IMG SRC="http://media.collegepublisher.com/media/paper420/stills/8214k8ak.jpg"><br><br>What happened?

</p><p>Magic number for the Braves is eight so if they can win 4 or 5
of the last 12 they are a lock. Looking good but there is still a
chance they tank in the regular season for a change. </p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>The
beauty of this home stretch is that every Cleveland win brings us
closer to what all of America is dreaming for......Either the Sox or
Yankees are OUT! </p><p>Worst case scenario - Cleveland wins the
Central and the White Sox collapse. This is looking more likely every
day. Go AL CENTRAL!!!!!<br />
