I think Brandon Webb is an extremely formidable number 2 guy behind the Unit, he blew people away last year.

The way I see it Luis Gonzalez-Richie Sexson-Shea Hillenbrand is a nice 3-4-5.

It all depends if Shawn Green can return to his old form.

It's hard to bring up the fact that Curt Schilling live the 'backs and not state that Kevin Brown left the Dodgers.  Brown was 2nd in the NL in ERA last year and K'd a ton of people.

I've got a LONG list of rookie pitchers who "blew people away" only to have a sucky Sophomore season, so until he shows me something, he's unproven IMHO.

As for Brown leaving, well.  That sucks for the Dodgers.  

I don't know, I've just got a gut feeling that the Dodgers will stick around a bit, but that's the great part of a new season.  I'll probably turn out to be totally wrong and you can all laugh at me in September!

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Star Destroyer Wave
« on: April 1, 2004, 02:04 PM »
Woo-Hoo!

Not an April Fool's joke for me either, as I was also able to score the Star Destroyer wave today (MAJOR thanks for an assist from OCB).

Target had put out a few new Yavin wave cases AND a case or two of Star Destroyer wave from the looks of it.

Unfortunately for the rest of the Minesotans, I think Scott and I cleaned them out!

Someone's got to explain to me how the Los Angeles Dodgers are being considered better than the Arizona Diamondbacks and the San Francisco Giants.  

Here's how I see it...

Barry + BALCO = Season long distractions...
Randy is unprotected thanks to Curt trip to the Red Sox... too much rebuilding
San Diego = They're the NL West's Royals.  Up and coming, but not quite there yet

All the Dodgers have to do is improve Run production.  If they would have scored just 17 more runs last year, the ESPN magic statistics (run differential) show they could have stayed in the race.  Plus, with Gagne, they DON'T lose close games.

So, that's why I picked them to win.  Plus, I'm tired of the same old teams and like a bit of fresh blood mixed into the playoffs (which is also why I picked Houston and Toronto as the Wild Cards)  

And besides, if I pick the same thing as everyone else, who will I brag to if I turn out to be right :)

AL Central:  Minnesota Twins
AL West: Oakland A's
AL Wild Card: Toronto Blue Jays

NL East: Atlanta Braves
NL Central: Chicago Cubs
NL West: LA Dodgers
NL Wild Card: Houston Astros

National League Champs: Chicago Cubs

World Series Champion: Chicago Cubs

Or something like that...

Hi Guys,

I heard from a friend today who let me know that he received his Gift Certificate ($50) and patches in the mail today...

I can't wait to get home and check the mail to see if mine came too!

Anyone else get stuff in the mail today???


edit: text added at 5:15pm

Well, I just got home from work and my packet was in my mailbox.

RotJ and Revenge of the Jedi patch set, three Topps Clone Wars Promo Cards (P1, P2, P3), and my $50 gift certificate!

They came in a little packet (which included a USPS Delivery Confirmation Number so they could track them I guess).  Sent out from Lucasfilm themselves, no secondary clearing house was used.

Woo-Hoo!  Glad it got here before the store re-opened!

Revenge of the Sith / Re: Episode III - Preview Figures (SPOILERS)
« on: March 29, 2004, 03:55 PM »
General Grievous
Obi-Wan's Astromech
Stormtrooper/CLonetrooper Hybrid
Darth Vader :-*

Hmmm...

* S P O I L E R S *

Be warned...

My 4 preview figures would be:
1) Gen. Grievous (Droid General) - Just like Jango, give away the baddie since he'll be in the preview AND we'll probably get like 15 different versions of him.
 
2) Wookie Warrior (possibly even Chewbacca!) - Woo-Hoo!

3) Episode 3 Clone Trooper - just like Episode 2

4) Droid - I don't know if they'll go Obi-Wan Astromech (since fans voted on it) or maybe a new battle droid model.  Either way, I'd vote on a droid for the 4th.

Then, I'd throw in a Darth Vader w/Episode 3 Cup to go with the Target set.

Just my guesses...

The boys are on a role!  :o  From Sportsnet.ca:

Edmonton has been one of the NHL's best teams down the stretch and now has points in 16 consecutive games.  8)

3 more games to go!  ;D  

No kidding!  I saw last night that they were 7-0-0-3 (17pts) in their last 10 games!  Nothing like turning it on at the end of the year to head into the playoffs at full steam.  At this rate, they're gonna keep up the rep of being first round giant-killers...

Even better, if the playoffs started today, they'd match up against Detroit.  I'm a big fan of the beloved Red Wings (they filled in the void after the North Stars left), but they've got a notorious reputation for LOSING to 8 seeds.


Jeff

ps.
the Wild were officially mathematically eliminated over the weekend.  So, too, did the season end for the Gophers Men's Hockey teams as they lost in the NCAA tourney... at least our Lady Gophers held up the Sate of Hockey's reputation with a NCAA Womens Hockey championship!
