Where is your savior now?
- Feb 18, 2007
Less than an hour before I get to see my Red Sox play Oakland in the first MLB game of the season!! It sucks that they are playing Japan...
I'm liking our pitching rotation, as always, over here in San Diego, but I think we still need to get some bats, our pitching is what saved us, with the best team ERA in all of baseball. 741 runs scored vs. 666 runs allowed. We lost Cameron and Bradley, who were arguably the better or the bats in the lineup besides Gonzalez. We did pick up Edmonds, but who knows how much longer he can play, I hope he still has a bit of a bat, but we will see.Bliss said:ahh yes the season is starting, well atleast for 2 teams. And yea i agree with u guys that it is a half a$$ idea to start it a week before the rest of the league.
Also how comfortable is everyone with there favorite team?
Im a lil up in the air with a few things for the Mets. First is the 5th spot for the rotation with Pelfrey and El Duque gettin rocked there last outing. And also the corner outfield, Alou is bound to go on the DL for most of the season and Church hasnt shown he can hit lefties. Other then that i just hope we stay healthy and have a good season.

I had heard good things about Iguchi, I just haven't seen anything first hand yet so I'll wait to make judgment on that.dakuda said:Iguchi is pretty consistent.

As for all the talk about Prior: he did lead the league, with Kerry Wood, for simulated towel-tossing games the past few years. That means he will lead the league in simulated games again. He has good stuff, but the injury bug has held him back quite a bit.
blueovalboy7 said:Bad news for Angels' fans, Kelvim Escobar has a right shoulder tear, which may be career threatening. Surgery is a possibility at this point and not a necessity just yet. He's a great pitcher, 18 game winner last year, I hope for his sake and that of Angel fans that he is able to return after rehab.
I wouldn't get your panties in too much of a bunch just yet, the Angels are still a solid club and are still favored by some analysts to win the West, even with this news.S.S. said:Crap, that's not a good sign of things to come...
