Eric Bedard is sort of a guess after reading a couple of fantasy pimp him a bit. He was available in both leagues, and I had pitchers I was unhappy with, so I figured, what the hell...

JoeBo was a research pick. I needed another closer after Baez lost the job, and finally secured a guy who is looking pretty good. I liked him so much that I made room for him on my other team.

I just don't know what to think about David Ross.

Felipe Lopez is driving me nuts right now... I'm hoping to see a little more consistency out of him.

And Roger is Roger. Glad to have him on the team(s).

Curtis Granderson OF - 15th-20th round
Aaron Harang SP - 20th-22nd round
I can't I believe I forgot to mention Francisco Liriano. That kid is going make me some money this year.......



The young man has been nothing short of brilliant. He's handcuffing the Dodgers right now.

Hahahahahaha...

Jose Lopez is the best 2b in the AL right now...and with Cano going on the DL it should be Iguchi/Lopez in the All Star game.

Kenji's on a nice streak right now too.

It's weird...we've only lost once against the NL. Many think it's no coincidence either (Carl Everett blows ass).

That's a great turn of phrase. A bit of an oxymoron perhaps, but quite humorous.......

Man, Todd Helton has really found his stroke lately.

Unfortunately, Aaron Cook is on the mound tonight, which means that the Rockies are destined to score two runs or less in support of him.

Clemens once again got no run support. 4-0 Tigers. Clemens only gave up 1 earned run though.

Clemens is probably my favorite non-Tiger ball player. He should have signed with the Red Sox instead of the Astros.

Tigers are looking like the best team in baseball right now. Zumaya throws utter filth. They need to make him the closer or put him in the rotation next year.

They are absolutely on fire now. It's sucks for the Sox having the 2nd best record in baseball and still 2nd in their division.

It took Jeff "Spicoli" Weaver to make it happen, but the Rockies are actually giving Cook some support tonight. 6 runs already in the 3rd inning.

Its a sad joke the Halos keep running him out there when his brother is toying with minor leaguers.

Really...

If Moreno is so willing to spend, why not just eat the contract? It's only a one year deal, IIRC.

But, on second thought, no...do not DFA him. M's fans enjoy watching the Angels suffer...

Zumuya is flat out filthy. I have a feeling he will be the closer by the end of the year, or next year at the latest. Todd Jones scares me every time he takes the mound and Rodney is a great setup man.

If I hear ESPN mention one more suggestion of a Zumuya for Smoltz trade, I will puke. Zumuya IS the future.....trading him would be foolish.

Smotlz would be a great pickup, but no way in hell do you send Zumaya anywhere. Piss on Atlanta. Why would anybody want to help them anyway? They had their decade and a half in the sun.

I am pretty content with the Tigers staying put.

The team is pretty tight and I see no reason to make a trade just to make one. Another LH bat in the OF would be nice if we do make a move.

Two things you must know in order to become a serious M's fan:

1. Hargrove sucks at managing his 'pen.

2. Mateo and Guardado are zeros.

Yeah. I've already taken to calling him Every-Once-In-Awhile Eddie at the local watering hole after softball games. That's won me a couple of chummy slugs to the shoulder.

Teix just hit the game tying ball, and the refs took it away from him... He blew up and they threw him out of the game...

Dammit dammit dammit!
