    I honestly think we finish second in the division when it's all said and done. I don't think the pieces we trade away (Willingham, Morales, Correia) are enough to make the team worse. Now that we...

    Ripken set a pretty high bar for anyone in the past few decades, and he's going to be very tough to beat for awhile. A-Rod should have, but he moved to third and well everything afterwards took him...

    The new format was better, but the couple tiebreakers pretty much negated the time they saved by going to 7 outs per batter. With the new technology, maybe they should have the tiebreaker be longest...

    So barring a disaster the rest of the way, KC will have as many quality starts on the season as Phil Hughes, and one ahead of Gibson (who both do have one less start at this point). Funny what a...

    The Nolasco deal is currently making the Pelfrey re-signing look like a steal. If you are going to get a near 6.00 ERA, don't overpay for it.

    Teams with a short season A (A- for sake of discussion) don't have a second Rookie League team. Teams with a second Rookie team (Twins have Elizabethton), won't have the A- team. But they are...

    Burton seems to me like a guy that thrives under more pressure than not. It's the worthless, blow out games where he'll have a bad inning to bloat his ERA when in reality, those games are just...

    More like unlucky Correia from April. He had an outfielder play a single into a triple, and he wouldn't have scored on Abreu's hit IMO. And Escobar's error has now led to a run and about 15-20...

    Joe with his first RBI since May 27th! But don't set your expectations too high, the next one shouldn't come until after the All-Star game.

    Both Hicks and Gardy pretty much acknowledged when he made the switch to just hitting right handed that it was best to do so at AAA, but there simply weren't any other options in center at that time....

    Agreed. It's between now and the All-Star game that we have to stay close, and thankfully the Tigers have come back to the rest of the division. Get past that and we'll see if we are buyers or...

    Not sure where he ranks, but he's never shown up in the top five results for first baseman voting. The funny part is if he was still at catcher, even putting up his terrible numbers, he probably...

    I think Perkins, Hughes and Suzuki are almost automatic. Suzuki should start, especially being at home and the manager's getting to pick the starter with Weiters out. It's either him or Derek...

    Does it seem Santana gets nearly picked off on every single throw over? He may break Span's record for getting picked off on a regular basis. I noticed his SB percentage was pretty poor in the...

    Maybe he only hits a double if he hits it over the fence and has to stop at second because he is tired.

    Kind of thought the Astros would be the perfect team for Deduno, but when he did throw good pitches, he couldn't miss any bats. Probably doesn't matter today as the offense doesn't look like it's...

    Knew it had to be coming with Morales signing. I was so glad to see him get off to a hot start, but I think playing everyday in the outfield took it's toll on him. He wasn't really brought here to...

    So despite Guerrier's 1.59 ERA over the past four weeks, people still want him gone, no questions asked? The guys been pretty great after his first two appearances.

    And Dick just said they sent Correia out for the sixth because we don't have 13 pitchers anymore? I miss the days with only 11 pitchers.

    Not at all like Marquis. Correia has pitched better than Nolasco and probably better than Gibson the last six weeks.

    One terrible missed pitch by the umpire, to the biggest villain in the game at that, and now it's turned into a game again. He can hold them the rest of the way though.

    Not bad for starting the inning with two outs and nobody on. Arcia reminds me a lot of Kubel ten years ago. Potential to hit .300, the balls jump off his bat for lots of extra base hits, about the...
  25. Do you think Suzuki has a chance to start in the All-Star game?

    I'm presuming even if he slumps in June, he's done enough to earn a spot on the team, especially with Gardy on the coaching staff. But do you think he starts if Weiters wins the vote and can't play?...
