I will be @ Yankee stadium for Tuesdays game.....

Chowds....Hardest thing to do is to defend a championship......Especially, when the championship team was dismantled. (good thinkin') :
This could be the strongest Yankee team in quite a while.....

Chowds your'e goin' down....

It all starts Sunday night
post #4 of 25
Sox were far from dismantled, only one change in all of the position players (Renteria for Cabrerra.)

Yes pitching is a question mark now - but dismantled? Still poised to score an awful lot of runs.

Yankees are loaded, no question. But the curse of A Rod is upon ye!

It's the Sports Illustrated curse! SI has the Yankees beating the Braves for the title.

Yankees have a much improved starting rotation and the Bosox took a step back especially with Schilling likely to start the season on the DL. I like the Sox bullpen for sure. Dismantled? Renteria is a solid SS w/a much better bat than Cabrera. And I will miss Pedro's wins but not his prima donna attitude. D-Lowe? Big deal. Thanks for being solid in the playoffs, but have fun in LA.

And that chicken-armed mutt Damon better cut the sh** with the off field stuff. Book signing, Queer Eye, TV appearances. Puh-lease! He comes outta the gate slow and I'll hurl a d-cell at that mutt!!!

Now if Sox management can only keep David Wells from hanging w/Teddy Kennedy's ex-wife, the team should be OK until Schilling gets back.

This will be a constest to see who's old-fart pitchers make it through the season. My bet is the old-farts in Boston will last better than the old-farts in NY.

That is freakin hilarious
He will be the MVP...in heels or flats!!

I use dismantled....because KEY parts have been let go.....PEDRO, LOWE(2 out of 5 post season starters) CABRERRA...were absolutely HUGE ..... another point .....You guys should know better than anyone about team chemistry......that has been greatly altered.
When Schilling loses a game....who is the next guy to stop the bleeding in the rotation....Wells??? If he is not on the DL, maybe......

Well, @ least it is glorious. Unlike the sniveling, whining, victimized, self flagulating presentation of the Red Sox history. In which, most of the "Red Sox Nation' indulges.

ryan,
No doubt, Red Sox played the way champions play. They beat their nemesis and utterly dominated the series......but, I digressed......now back to the ssssscccccchhhhhmmmmaaaaccckkkkkk
post #17 of 25
I split Phillies season tix with a few other folks so I get to about 8-10 games a year.
I'm really looking forward to the Mets matchups this time. I love Pedro and will try to be there every time he pitches..
BUT, Pat "the bat" Burrell is soon to become his daddy!
post #18 of 25

child o' the 70's

the phillies i recall diggin' included

Michael Jack Schmidt, Dave Cash, Greg "The Bull" Luzinski, Larry Bowa, Bob Boone, Steve Carlton (didn't McCarver catch him on days he pitched?), Willie Montanez, Garry Maddox (what couldn't he run down), Tommy Hutton. Heck, I think Jim Lonborg ended his career in Philly. (Lonborg was an ace on the '67 Sox team that went to the series; he effed himself good with a skiing injury.) Remember (anyone?) Bake McBride and the days of the Major League Afro. (Oscar Gamble had THAT goin' on.) McBride and Willie Wilson in KC, two of the fastest guys I've seen run the bases. Like about 3.4 or some ungawdly time, home to first.

Carlton was THE guy. Won 27 games, I think, with one of the worst Philly teams ever. '72 or '73.

And some crazy muthah named Pete Rose a little later.

The Wilson "twins" (they ain't) in Pittsburgh are fun to watch, too.

Play Ball.

I don't know jacque about fantasy baseball.

btw, i think pedro will have a strong to very strong first half of the season. he's lost some ooomph off the fastball but that movement and his experience will get him by...for awhile. curious to see how the hitters in the league will adapt over the course of the season.
post #19 of 25
Ryan, good knowledge! Lonborg made a quick stop with the Brewers in '72 before heading to the Phillies for several years. I've actually got his '76 and '78 baseball cards still kicking around (went to verify and found a Joe Torre/Mets card in there - D'OH!). Lonborg became a dentist here in Mass. Yup, McCarver was there during that time as well.
post #20 of 25
i have a joe torre card, the year after he won the batting title with st. louis. (he may've been MVP that year, not sure.) anyway, when i was a kid i called that my eyebrows card. look at torre, you know why.

i think he hit about .360 that year ('71), or close to it.

sadly, i gave most of my cards away long ago, though i still have a few keepers.

also recall a homerun dick ("don't call me richie") allen hit against the dodgers when he was with the phillies, at dodger stadium. still have not seen another "pop fly" land on the other side of the center-field wall like that one did, with vince scully saying, "it looks like a maaaaaaarrrbblee."
post #21 of 25
Also got a Dave Winfield card from that vintage where he's sporting some killah sideburns. I used to collect cards like a fiend in the 70's as a kid. Not many left in my possession. I seem to recall a baseball bat display at the HoF w/Dick Allen's "club" in the same row with with a toothpick used by Rose.

BASEBALL IS BORING

I have a bold prediction:

The Pirates will not finish above .500 and will not make the playoffs.

Big market teams suck, Yankees suck the most.
