Any baseball fans on here?
So far the BoSox have been hot hot hot. Hideki Okajima upstaging Daisuke Matsuzaka, there pitching looks strong. And Ortiz, Manny and co have been as clutch as ever.
Yanks are sucking balls, hope they miss the playoffs. And now they have Roger 'Mr Selfish' Clemens. Another reason to hate the Yanks. (I only cheer for Matsui, and thats it)
My M's are still crap. Been at 500 all year, our offseason pitching aquistions are turning out to be rubbish as i picked. Jeff Weaver (14+ ERA), plain old average Batista and Ramirez. At least Washburn has been better than last year, but not signing the decent Meche in favour of Weaver seems to have been a big bluey, and the Soriano for Ramirez trade still makes no sense. Expect the GM, Bill Bavasi, to be gone come next offseason.
Ichiro has been on a tear of late though, my fav player. Batting over .500 the last week, brought his average up to .327 and since getting his consecutive steals streak snapped has stole 5 bases in 2 games. He's so gun.
Over to the NL. BrewCrew have been a big surprise, but have just started to slump.
Cardinals are in an unsual position of being under .500. The loss of Carpenter was huge, cant see them making the playoffs at this rate.
So any baseball followers out there?
