Baseball thread
 
Who else here is any fan of baseball? I figured to make this since I didn't see a baseball thread when I did a search. Please keep it freindly.

I myself am a huge White Sox fan. What about you guys?

If the Sox and Cubs both choke, that'll be the team i'll be rooting for, but, that hasn't happened yet.

Lester IS ridiculous, but it's obvious the Rays are to be reckoned with. I'd be mad as hell, but not surprised if they took it all.

I also wanted to see the Dodgers do well to give SteinBonehead and the Yankees something to think about in the off season after not resigning Torre. But now that Manny has been Manny and defected with his defects I hope they fall on their faces. All due respect (and it IS much) to Joe Torre, one of the BEST the game has ever seen.

And how can you not like Pinnella and the Cubs?? But it doesn't look too good as they're down 2 to the Dodgers already.

But of course, I bleed RED into my Sox, so, sans the post season workhorse Schilling but still with our newest "ace" Lester, Daisuke, and Beckett the third game "ace" and the proven post season bullpen commodity Jonathan Papelbon things are looking pretty good in the "Bay" state.
(yeah, I MEANT to word it like that)
Jason Bay has been the PERFECT addition to the Red Sox. No, he's not a HOF hitter like Mini Mind Manny, but he's a total ball player and has brought peace and a contagious work ethic to the Red Sox clubhouse.

My hopes for a Red Sox - Cubs world series aren't dead yet. So we'll see, it's Post Season, and you can NEVER tell!!

GO SOX!! (the red ones)

Re: Baseball thread
 
Yeah Viper I bet you did the same little celebration I did when Torre signed with the dodgers, that was an idiot move by Steinbrenner and co., he is one of the best. And you have to love Bay he is the anti-Manny. Two things i'm worried about: The Rays like you, and Jed, who started off soo hot but now seems like he strikes out every other at bat, I think if he can put the ball in play more he'll get real hot but he keeps striking out in clutch spots (regular season). Our bulpen looked like a worry but Masterson completley solidified it and Okie and Manny returned to form.

I was SHOCKED when they threw him out with yesterday's stale cannoli!! MAN!! And Gerardi's a nice guy n' all, but he's no Joe Torre. The Dodgers made it to the Post Season, proof enough that it was a mistake, but Steinbonehead ain't too bright and he'll go to his grave believing he made the right move.

Yeah, Lowri's bat HAS cooled off, but that's the beauty of the Red Sox, it's someone different all the time, you don't have to rely on just one or two guys. Everyone takes a turn at being the big gun for the evening. I'm gonna miss Lowell, as much of a trooper as he is, I don't see him making the complete post season. :(

HA HA !! Ray's are down 2-1 as we type!! (I'll root for the white sox JUST for this series) L0L!!

Good luck in the next round.

Thank you baseball fan. We suffered 9 years with a bull pen that couldn't find the mound much less the strike zone.

TOUGH series!! DAMN!! I was hoping the Rays would be knocked out in Round 1!! Amazing season they've had! (My wife says they're ALL on Steroids!!) L0L!

No such luck. I'll wager it'll go the full 7 games too, there will be no free ride here.

Kind of a shame that NONE of the Chicago teams passed to the LCS.

If we break the Rays, I'm thinking it'll be the Red Sox vs Manny Ramirez, Francona vs Torre. That TOO will be very interesting should it come to pass.

Only time will tell.

GO SOX!!

I don't see the Angels as being one of the best teams in baseball. They ARE a great team, but I think they are not as good as their numbers suggest.

If they were in the AL east they would NOT look so good, it's their division that makes them look so good on paper. Their division is the WEAKEST division in baseball, and they're an above average team. Basically the big fishes in the small pond.

Do you really see them being so dominant in the AL east against the Rays, Yankees, Jays not to mention the Red Sox??

No way to prove it, but I really believe in this assessment of the Angels.

I usually don't care at all for teams outside of Texas, but my heart sunk when the Cubs lost. I can just imagine the high hopes those fans had this year. And then for their beloved team to go out in the first round. Ouch.

But I'm really rooting for the Rays. They've gone from being the worst team in the league last year to probably winning the whole thing this year.

True, but the Cubs came in with 97 wins and the Angels has 100 wins or so, which was the best record in the league, right?

Thats what I was told, at least.

Oh yeah, the best RECORD, but not one of the best teams because of it. They got that record beating up on the AL west teams which really sucked this year.

I'm just saying they're not as good as that record would lead you to believe.

Yeah, and how about Jason Bay??? He's been a BIG factor in the post season for the Red Sox.

The Angels gave me indigestion, the Rays are gonna give me a heart attack!!! This is gonna be a TOUGH series man!!

Let's hope the planets line up for the Red Sox!

Ya know, I've always been a Lester fan, (I still got two #62 shirts, and I'm still wearing the #62 Striking Out Cancer wristband) but MAN, has HE stepped UP!!!
I had NO idea he was gonna be THIS good!!

Most disturbing.

The Rays have managed to get 2 wins to the Red Sox' ONE!! I'm quite upset about all the men left on base!!

Becket AND Lester were not NEARLY on their games.

I'm very depressed as I hoped Lester would be a shoe-in for a win as was NOT the case.

I also figured out why BJ Upton hits for such power, HE'S THE SUPER HERO FROZONE FROM THE INCREDIBLES!!!!!!

http://mlb.mlb.com/images/2006/02/26/3gcklhx9.jpg. .http://www.superherohype.com/nextraimages/SuperIce.jpg
BJ Upton. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Frozone

It's either humor, or I'll have a nervous breakdown!!

Insanely disturbing, like I shut off the drums after the seventh, and played until now without even checking the score...Again, that or I'll have a nervous breakdown.
I think B.J.'s power came from the becket grooved fastball and Lester's in the same spot. And did you see the pitch to Longoria from Beckss...ohhh lordy 85 mph and right down the middle, I play small high school ball and I maybe coulda taken that yard..

I was very impressed with that 9-1 win.

Even though I'm a die-hard White Sox fan, lets go Rays!

Red Sox have been there, done that. The Rays haven't even been into the World Series yet! (Although, I really want to see the Cubs win the World Series though)
