And the Padres own the Dodgers. 24, you better hope it doesnt come down to playing them to make the playoffs. I dont know the Dodgers schedule but everytime they play the Padres to end the season, it doesnt come out good. If i was a betting man, I would have made a killing on this series. Great division though.

Yankees & Mets......I'd estimate 90% of the fans here are fans of those two teams and the breakdown of that would probably be 80% Yankees to 10% Mets.

Surprisingly, we don't get the Jays, Tribe or Pirates....given my location, you'd think that I would, but there must be some sorta exclusionary territorial thing going on or something. The only way we get those broadcasts is if they happen to show up on ESPN or over crackling, staticy AM radio at night.

BTW, Torres with another blown game and Duke.....don't get me started.

Some columnist in the Post Gazette is howling for both to be shipped to the minors or out of town.....and I'm beginning to agree with him.

Has it always been like that? I know you were an Expos fan.....did you used to get those games regularly?

BTW, Love the avatar. I probably told you at some point that Dick Dale is originally from Quincy, MA and my ex-wife's uncle was the best man at his wedding. Her grandmother was a huge fan and even claimed to have taught him guitar (I've seen old pictures from '58 - '62 or so of DD in her dining room with a guitar).

I saw DD and his son play some dive in Boston about 1992. My ex-wife's grandmother got us all to go. DD is impressive when you can see him up close.

The only way to experience the King is to get up front and personable. My advice would be to take a kid along...he's a sucker for kids and he'll be hovering around you all show doing guitar tricks for the youngsters....you can get great pics then.

Pretty much.....we'd get the Yankees on WPIX and the Mets on WOR and that'd be it. The only time I ever got the Expos on a semi-regular basis was from the mid-80's till about 1995. My Uncle had a satalite dish and I used to get the game on a bounce from the CBC (or whatever it was on) satalite.....The Canadians never blocked the games coming out of Canada so they were easy to get at the time. The game would be in French, which was funny at first and then got old real quick by the third inning, so we'd mute it.

The Rockies just took a closer 8th overall. I'm at a loss for words on this one.

Bye bye Fuentes.

Not that this will comfort you, but Pittsburgh selected Moskos from Clemson at #4 - and he's likely to be a closer as well.

Sometimes I wonder if the Rockies know what the draft is all about...
Clearly they don't...

Actually, the past 5 #1 picks - and I'd say baseball has the worst "hit" record for high draft picks:

'02 - Francis
'03 - Ian Stewart - in AAA
'04 - HS kid from GA, I don't remeber his name - not progressing as should
'05 - Tulo - already in majors, will be a good player for a long time in the bigs
'06 - Greg Reynolds, dominating at AA in his first full minor league year

So I would actually argue that they've done considerably better than average.

8 2/3rds of no-no and Stewart gets a single off Schilling.

At least some think Moskos can be a lefty starter with a good slider...

I was pumped when I saw Colorado take Weathers, because he was on Seattle's wishlist.

I'm pretty happy with who Seattle took. Aumont actually has some projectability and talent, as opposed to the other names they were rumored to be kicking around.

Matt Holliday is on an absolute tear. No one is hotter at the plate right now.

Great day of Baseball for me today caught the Nats/Bucs game live, (won on HR in the top of the 9th) followed by the Schilling performance. That sucked, but it ends that losing streak. Really need the bats to start hitting though

Great comeback for the Rockies. Have had a couple good comebacks, only 2 below .500 at the moment. Some really good wins here for the Rockies. 29-31. No way they will contend for the division though, but a .500 record will do wonders for this young team IMO.

The Madres drafted Matt Bush #1 overall in '04. He was a short stop/pitcher from San Diego. It was a horrible pick. They didn't take Verlander, or Weaver because they don't like to deal with Boras. Bush couldn't cut it as a short stop in High A Lake Elsinore...so now he's being sent down to be converted to a pitcher.

The kid I was referring to was Nelson, SS, for the Rockies. I've lost track of where he is. At Tulsa?

J. Bay top of the 9th Opp. field blast but the main reason why the Bucs won today? Torres didn't set foot on the field Mad Matt Capps is still hanging tough with the club as well....MLB hasn't screwed him yet it appears.

Schilling is such an ass that I find myself rooting against him more often than not....good win for your team, but it didn't break my heart any to see him choke on the no no
