Lets start talking about the 2007 major league season! I know the NFL is heating up and the playoffs are a couple of weeks away but dangit I got a wonderfull bit of news today, the Milwaukee Brewers signed Jeff Suppan to a four year deal (club option for a fifth). Although I reside in the heart of Packer country I love the Brew Crew first and formost!

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20061225/ap_on_sp_ba_ne/bbn_brewers_suppan

Anybody else getting excited for spring training!?!?!?!?!?!?

Spring training only about 6 weeks away. I am glad the Brewers signed Suppan and not the Mets.

Yankees signing the japanese pitcher and Pettitte helps out alot. The line up is solid as it was last year. Wang needed some back up in the rotation as Moose and Johnson are showing their age. Lets build up the pen now and we can get further in the playoffs.

What do you think of Boston spending over 100 mill on basically an unknown pitcher?

I think a healthy part of that was so the Skankeys wouldn't sign him.

I just read that there is talk of trading Johnson, I don't know what you'd get for him.... OR who would want him.

Aw, c'mon! Two was pretty good. Not as good as the first, but any movie with the line, "Women: you can't live with them, and they can't pee standing up" is good in my book.

Here's my prediction right now so I can quote it by mid-July: The Tigers will be every trendy pick for AL and/or World Series champs until the middle of June or the beginning of July when they are still sub-.500.

I predict no team will go undefeated, and no team will go winless.And I predict that there will be at least two extra-innings games, a manager of a National East Central team will be thrown out of a home game, a batter will be hit intentionally by a pitcher which will result in a mound charging, and a singer will goof up either the National Anthem or Take Me Out to the Ballgame.

Frankly, I'm really uber excited for this season. The Cubs made some decent transactions in the off season, but have been plagued by the usual BS. Still, as a Cubs fan on the eve of their first game, I'm planning my trip to the Windy City for their World Series Parade. :lipsrsealed:

Not sure what to expect out of the Mariners this year. They made some good acquisitions, but no obvious impact players. I do think that the talent is there, so if they play to their potential it will be a good season. Jose Guillen, Jose Vidro, Miguel Batista, Horacio Ramirez and Jeff Weaver are the key new additions.

Have you ever read what I believe is the greatest and best sports blog in the world (firejoemorgan.blogspot.com), not to mention the most aptly named?


Here's my prediction right now so I can quote it by mid-July: The Tigers will be every trendy pick for AL and/or World Series champs until the middle of June or the beginning of July when they are still sub-.500.I've been right up until this point. Everyone of the retards on ESPN (John Kruk, Tim Kurkjian, et. al.) have nominated the Tigers as God without so much as batting an eyelash at the Twins. One of those rejects even went so far as to name Jeremy Bonderman the AL Cy Young winner NO MORE than thirty seconds after saying the that the Tigers, outside of Pudge and Sheffield, have no players that stand out in a crowd. No, hold the F on. Did you not just name three of them?!?!

I'm not hating on the Tigers. I would love nothing more than to see them repeat as at least AL champs. I just hate the fact that they went ignored for the first half of 2006 and now they might as well have the power to cast plagues.

Real eager to see how Alex Gordon does this year in his first season in the big leagues.The Royals don't have a bad team at all, especially when compared to the others at the bottom of the MLB barrel. What keeps them below the .500 mark is playing in such a relatively strong division. When ~20% of your games are against Minnesota, Detroit or Chicago (who shouldn't be as much of an issue this year), any rebuilding team would struggle to break even. Their year is coming

The NFL and the suits who pay for the network contracts that force the NBA down our throats have allowed this game to still exist?

When will it fold? Definitely not trying to reach the fans with the Direct TV deal.

Wake me if the Nationals break the record for losses, Wrigley Field assaults more fans, and the myopia that is Peter Gammons says the Boston Red Sox are the best thing since one can no longer sacrifice cows in religous ceremonies.

If Felix Hernandez pitches like this all season, the Mariners should be in good shape. Eight shutout innings, 12 K, 3 hits and two BB. The bats will have to do a bit better though. Not much other than Sexon's 3-run homer. A couple errors helped as well.

The Mariners could have been contenders last year if not for going 2-17 against the A's. A victory against them is a good way to start the season.

Dice-K: the hype, and the MONEY for cryin' out loud. Most fans likely think there's no way he could possibly be worth that much scratch, but the 5 spotless innings he threw a couple of weeks ago (you remember, the 5 perfect innings he thought weren't very good???? :eek: ) sold me on him.

Tigers pen: well, he got them an outing and they both performed alright. No sense in letting either of them work past where they're comfortable when the games are this meaningless. With the spring Zumaya was having, I'm just relieved he got in the game and did fairly well.

I think we'll be okay, but the loss of Kenny is really stressing me out - he was the "lock" last year - even when things were going completely sideways at the end, you could ALWAYS count on Kenny to stop the bleeding with a big outting. I hope he gets better sooner than they're saying. :(

I had no extra pitchers, so I picked up Washburn and Moyer, a Mariner and an ex-Mariner. Wang might be back at the end of the month.

The guys fastball tops out at 93 MPH so far and has been spotted at 95. Toss that up to a power hungry lineup like the Yanks, Jays, White Sox, Indians and Tigers and see where that sh*t lands. DiceK will have whiplash like a hooker on dollar days.

And I'm sure you sleep better at night knowing your little purchase will help get us some starting pitching next year. Now that you've gotten your feet wet with the cheap hat, you can move on to one of the New Era 5950s. Of course you'll need a home red and an away blue. Heck, throw in the interlocking DC logo'd one too, and you'll be all set. Make sure to wear them in the shower so they mold to your head.

Dang it! There went the Pirates' 162-0 season. Eh, what're ya gonna do?

What are the thoughts on the #42 wearing later this season? Should it be like the Dodgers, where all players change to Jackie Robinson's number, or one player per team? Personally, I think it should be any 2nd baseman, or leadoff hitter. Or, wear their own number, but the PA announcer could say, "now batting, #42, Player Name."

Did anyone else happen to listen to/see "Mike and Mike" yesterday (Friday) morning? Greenberg made a great point and TOTALLY had it reinforced last night. Why the hell are teams like Detroit, Cleveland and the Yanks playing teams from (relatively) warm weather spots or at least have domes playing in Detroit, Cleveland and New York?! Why aren't these games being scheduled in Toronto (dome), Seattle (average high for April is 54*F) or Tampa Bay (Thursday night in NY: Snow. Thursday night in Florida: mid-70's).

I'm sure scheduling 162 games for 30 teams is no small task, but c'mon.

Mad Slanted Powers

Yes, snowed out in Cleveland. Football doesn't let a little snow bother them. I ran a state cross country meet in the snow, and would have done pretty well if I hadn't got that sideache. Our high school track/cross country coach wrote a few verses for us to sing like those military cadences. It began with:

I don't know but I've been told
Baseball players don't like the cold
Tracksters train in snow and sleet
That's why they're so darn hard to beat

Then there was a line for each type of track person - sprinter, distance runner, jumper, thrower.

I sense a very annoying trend developing... :rolleyes:
As for whether the weather should determine scheduling, we can't control the elements (except those synthetic ones created in laboratories :p ). But I do feel bad when things like Byrd's one-strike-away shortened no-hitter/Martinez-going-on-the-DL-due-to-a-cold-related-injury in Cleveland. It's no fair to only put games in Minnesota, Arizona, Toronto, Tampa Bay, Milwaukee, Seattle, et al for their domes, or warm weather cities.

How long before A-Rod goes on a 1-4 "slump" and loses his new found "true Yankee" status?:rolleyes:

As much as I dislike the guy (mostly because he's prettier than me), I'm happy that he's starting the season off so well. Everyone was quick to get on the "F A-Rod" train during the off season and now its funny to watch them scramble onto the "Well, we knew it was just a matter of time..." train. Congrats to KH for going out on a limb and drafting him in the fantasy league!:p

On an unrelated fantasy note: jj will be happy to know that I just picked up Placido Polanco.:thumbsup:

When compared to 1B those players dont add up sans Cabrera.

Wright - unproven so far, hasnt shown he can keep it up season after season
Ramirez - Good power, would take him
Chavez - meh, nothing special
Glaus - injury prone and doesnt hit for avg. as well.

When compared to 1B those players dont add up sans Cabrera.I wasn't trying to compare them to 1B, I was just naming five quality 3B.

Wright - unproven so far, hasnt shown he can keep it up season after seasonTotally agree. I tend to put him and Ryan Howard into the same category of "You had a good year, but you've yet to impress me".

Ramirez - Good power, would take himBest overall third baseman in the league, IMO.

Chavez - meh, nothing specialNo, but if he's healthy he gets nasty.

Glaus - injury prone and doesnt hit for avg. as well.I agree, but see above.

Who should be on this list is Brandon Inge. If you look at what he did last year, Detroit would've been screwed without him. I can't justify his addition, though, considering he's started the year 0-20 and didn't start last night. You know your having a bad start when Neifi Perez takes your place on the field.

jjreason
04-11-2007, 06:32 PM
Inge is awesome, and he's not even a natural 3rd baseman. The potential on this kid is amazing.... but he's got to cut back on those home run hacks in order to bump the avg up about 10 points. God bless the hustle, though....

Don't worry about last night, Cappy - your boy Nate looked like Cy Young. :pleased:

Miguel Cabrera is the class of the 3rd baggers these days... but A-Rod looks to be out to prove me wrong. LOTTA dingers already, lotta dingers. :damnyankees:

but he's got to cut back on those home run hacks in order to bump the avg up about 10 points.Whatever seminar he attends for that, he should take Curtis GRANDerson with him.

God bless the hustle, though....I'm glad you didn't make a comparison to David "Gritty" Eckstein. I might have killed you. :p


Don't worry about last night, Cappy - your boy Nate looked like Cy Young. :pleased:Didn't he though?! Nate was totally on point. That was certainly a good start to have on your second time in the rotation.

Is there any chance he's worth that much money, KH? Honestly, for that much money over one season, couldn't they have gotten someone better? Steinbrenner almost looks as though he's desperately grasping at straws from the past to try and light a fire under a crew that's shown nothing but indifference so far (except for A-Rod, of course).

Kidhuman
05-09-2007, 07:12 AM
I dont think he is worth the money. Part of it was to keep him from going to Boston. HE will ge tthe wins, he is a 5-6 inning pitcher. What I like is the knowledge he will pass on to Hughes, Rasner, Karstens and the other young pitchers we have. Also by bringing him in, it pushes the good young pitchers to the bullpens(Karstens, Rasner) to give the others some rest. With a rotation of:

Wang
Pettitte
Moose
Clemens
and Hughes

the Yankees look good to go. No question the O can carry themselves, he does alot for the rotation. 5 games behind Boston in May is nothing to make up considering we play them 14 more times.

Third, seeing as how you're in the right neck of the woords, you could have taken a crowbar to the amrs of Capuano, Bush, and Vargas and things would have looked a lot better last series. You're the poorest excuse for a Nats fan I've ever met.

For Seattle, Felix Hernandez was out a while, and hasn't returned to the unstoppable form he had in his first two outings. Jeff Weaver tanked big time. The rest of the starting rotation has been inconsistent. The offense hasn't put up big numbers. The bullpen seems to be doing pretty well though, and Ichiro is on a hot streak, hitting in 25 straight games. So somehow they have managed to get slightly over .500 and keep the Angels within striking distance.

Detroit's FSN announcers made a fun point tonight, stating that if you'd've told them in April that they'd be using Bobby Seay and Zach Miner to close a game they'd think that the team would be 20 games out of first place.

Once the second half of the season rolls around and guys like Rogers and Zumaya are back and guys like Guillen, Rodney and Inge are at 100%, the Tigers will make up any ground the Indians have on them.

While I don't really have the ear of "general consensus" of Buccos fans (they're rarer than vinyl caped Jawas, it seems :D ), in my personal opinion, the problem isn't with not bringing in players (Pitt did fairly well at that last off season), it's with dumping guys at the trade deadline. If the team had a recent history of success, it migth have had more impact, but a decade and a half of losing (usually not even close :( ) takes the wind out of the sails. I'll listen when I see them play at PNC next week.

As far as the "green shirts" were, I heard nothing about them, except a fan angry at not getting free agents, and when I told him it was worse that Pitt doesn't keep their own players, he said, yeah that's probably a bigger issue. But no protesters anymore that I saw.

Nice to see A-Rod's reaction after the ball went out - he was obviously feeling the pressure. Good for him, I'm as happy as I can be for a Yankee.

Of course, I stay up to (almost) see the 2nd at bat - I fell asleep on the couch and woke up with him on first. I go up to bed, and half an hour later he knocks it out. :upset: Oh well, it's not like I won't see it for the rest of my life, I guess.

Makes me wonder if he'll hang 'em up after this season, or if he'll hang around for one more. Hank Aaron's still WAY ahead of Barry as far as career at bats goes, Barry could likely hit 830-840 if he stuck around that long.

Was it Bonds who failed to throw out Sid Bream at the plate in the 92 NLCS? I can still see him sitting there, dejected out in left filed after the Braves came back to win that game and he gone about 1-20 in the series.

I agree. There is no way you can point just one finger at the Yankee's meltdown last year, nor can you point to one guy this year and say, "Yep. It's him."

As far as A-Rod batting .255, I failed to mention that that's only since the All Star break. You know, the same amount of time it's taken the Tigers to accumulate a team ERA in the high 5's, tying them for worst in the bigs with the DRays.

It's the most runs scored in 110 years. It was an American League record, and an AL record for most runs in a doubleheader. It was the ninth time a major league team scored 30 runs, the first since the Chicago Colts set the major league mark in a 36-7 rout of Louisville in a National League game on June 28, 1897, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

Me either, but that kind of goes without saying. Slick, on the other hand, has Ian Kinsler who had 3 runs and a couple RBIs. What's most amazing is that SS Micheal Young didn't collect a single RBI! I think they said on Sportscenter this morning that Texas scored more runs in the 8th and 9th than they've scored in their last 6 games total and that their 30 runs is more than the DRays have scored in their last 11 games. Like Tim "Master of the Prepubescent Voice Crack" Kurkjian said, there's a chance every night that you'll see something that you've never seen before!

Scott (or any other Yanks fan I guess): Who is up in the Yankees' rotation Saturday night? I've looked on Yahoo! and can't find a starter for the 25th when I'm there.

ESPN lists it as Wang vs Bonderman.Awesome, thanks KH! Detroit must just be skipping a spot in the rotation then if Andrew Miller isn't ready to pitch Saturday (tweaked hammy, been on the DL for a few weeks).

Sheff is out for the series also.He hasn't been healthy in a month, so sitting out will provide pretty much the same results. That just means that Cameron Maybin will get some more playing time and it'll allow Maggs and Carlos Guillen to split time as DH.

*EDIT* Miller is expected to pitch Friday night, meaning no jump in the rotation for Bondo. Also, I just read that Marcus Thames will DH in Sheff's absence.

Tiger nation has pretty much conceded the Central to the Indians, since it would take a melt-down of historic proportions to lose a seven game lead with three weeks left. The wildcard is gonna take some work, but three games isn't s*it in the grand scheme of things. It's just gonna take some run production and good starting pitching.

First off, it's highly unlikely anyone is going to sweep the Royals between now and the end of the year - they're getting much better all the time.

Secondly - the Tigers have turned a corner. Shef is back, Kenny's back, and they've pulled out 2 close ones in a row. Pair that with the fact that the Tribe is out west and getting pounded (at least last night) by the Angels.... and it's still wide open.

I dont even think it is close, and thats not Yankee bias talking.He is leading the league in batting, nearly 40 points better than A-Rod. He has nearly 20 more doubles. A-Rod leads the league in Runs and RBI, but Ordoņez is 2nd in RBI and tied for third in Runs. A-Rod has the SB advantage, but Ordoņez doesn't strike out as much. So, I would say A-Rod has the advantage, but I think it is close, and they don't always vote strictly on stats.

Mariners have had a tough time lately, but at least they salvaged a game from Detroit. They need to play a lot better to make up the five games on the Yankees.

I can't really add anything that MSP hasn't. I can understand an argument for ARod, but with Maggs closing in on the batting title it's hard to say no to him. While there is really no tie between batting title and AL MVP (save for Ichiro in 2001), it definitely puts him in the top slot IMO. Plus, MVP is about what you add to your team. Are you saying that the Yankees would win fewer games w/o ARod than the Tigers would lose w/o Magglio?

I am, however, resigned to ARod winning it simply because he's a Yankee and in a bigger market.

Boston and Cleveland (gets best overall record and choice of playoff schedule with win and other losing)
Arizona, ANAHEIM :rolleyes: , NYY, ChiC all set (except some opponents)

Good luck, you non-Pittsburgh squads! :p

Now the Brewers are winning, so it would be funny if Milwaukee knocks out San Diego after San Diego knocked out Milwaukee. lol

The Mets suck.

I was hoping they would win just to see the mini-playoffs before the big playoffs.

No it was NOT funny Caesar. After the Chargers last year with a 13-2 record going into their final game, and now this upset in MLB, San Diego is being punished for our good weather or something.

I couldn't watch the game. My little brother was getting married. But it sounds like it was exciting. I actually like long, extra-inning baseball games (when the Padres win) because it can be more exciting (if there's some action with some men on the bases).

Anyway, now there's the Cubs and of course there's always next season for the Padres.

Oh, and didn't I predict it would be Boston over NY in the AL? Yeah. I thought so.

Listen to Tycho here guys...he is becoming a sports commentator!! :)

I know you mentioned the Chargers a few times last season, but I didn't really think you were much of a sports fan.

I'm not usually into sports, but maybe I'm changing.

But I've noticed that most pro-teams don't use death rays to blow up entire planets, nor do they field cyborgs, kiss their sisters, or find out that their Dad is the manager of the New England Patriots and wants to know "what happened to those plans?"

That being said, there are a few things much more interesting to me than pro sports, and they require more imagination to appreciate.
