Well, at least Santana won't have to pitch to Ortiz in the playoffs...he should be relieved about it :P


Yeah instead it'll be this

1.  Damon, CF
2.  Jeter, SS
3.  Giambi, DH
4.  A Rod, 3B
5.  Sheffield, 1B
6.  Matsui, LF
7.  Posada, C
8.  Cano, 2B
9.  Cabrera, RF


And they've beaten his ass before  :)

Well they sure as hell don't have to worry about ARod.

I wouldn't bet the house on that, Bug.  He could go ape**** and hit 4 HR's against the Twins with no problem. 

But still and all, we don't need ARod.  We're winning the World Series this year with or without him hitting.

Any team that has a $200 million payroll should win the World Series

We're operating under the rules that govern MLB, and paying luxury tax under those rules to management and owners like your's in Minnesota who aren't as good as our owner and front office at marketing and fund-raising to pay that payroll.

Why don't you Twinkies over there get a clue like the Mets, Red Sox, and Yankees have on how to operate ideally under the rules of Major League Baseball, win some playoff games, and stop whining that you're not as good as other teams.

Quite, I'm just being like 98% of the rest of the fans out there disappointed in ARod.  His numbers are actually fine, they just don't merit the first pick in a fantasy draft.  Or the first round.

I'm not complaining in the disparity in payroll between the Twins and the Yankees, I'm saying you spend $200 million and you should win the World Series every single year.  I fully expect the Yankees to crush the Twins, however, I hope they don't.

I agree that he shouldn't be the first pick in the draft.  I think next year the top 5 are going to be:

Albert Pujols
Ryan Howard
Alfonso Soriano
Carlos Beltran
David Ortiz

However, in a 12 team league, I do think ARod's numbers warrant him being taken in the 2nd half of the Round One still:

.284   34 HR   117 RBI   108  Runs   14  SB 

Also, let's not forget that he is the reigning AL MVP.  When the Yankees win the World Series a month from now as well, I think he'll be relaxed and put up slightly better numbers.  Hell, he'll have an MVP and a Championship, what else do the fans want?

My last post just reminded me what an injury-riddled disaster my fantasy baseball season was.

Thank goodness NFL is in season.

Going to be a fun weekend for watching baseball!  We've got 3 division races still on the line this weekend with 3 games left!

Also, it was really nice to see Radke take the mound last night!  He seemed to pitch well, and barring any pain issues today/tomorrow, he should be ready to start game 3 of the playoffs. :)

What a bad time for a calf injury... Chances of a NY v. NY Subway Series just went down quite a bit.

It all depends who the Mets run into in the post-season.  If they run into the Astros and have to face Clemens-Oswalt-Pettitte, the Mets can forget about the World Series.  Nobody else is going to stop them, in my opinion.  That is, until they meet the Yankees in the World Series and get stomped.

75% chance as of right now that the Yankees and Twins will meet in the first round.  Pitching (Johan Santana) usually beats good hitting, but not overwhelming hitting.  This offense will go down as one of the greatest in the history of baseball:

1.  Johnny Damon, CF:  . 286  24 HR   80 RBI   115 R   25 SB
2.  Derek Jeter, SS:        .345  14 HR   96 RBI   118 R   33 SB
3.  Bobby Abreu, RF:      .297  15 HR  107 RBI    97 R   30 SB
4.  Alex Rodriguez, 3B:   .290  35 HR  121 RBI  113 R   15 SB
5.  Jason Giambi, DH:     .252  37 HR  113 RBI    92 R     2 SB
6.  Gary Sheffield, 1B:    .300  35 HR   120 RBI  100 R   10 SB (hurt, but typical #s)
7.  Hideki Matsui, LF:     .305  25 HR   115 RBI  105 R    2 SB (hurt, but typical #s)
8.  Jorge Posada, C:      .276  22 HR     91 RBI   64 R     2 SB
9.  Robinson Cano, 2B:  .341  15 HR     78 RBI   61 R     4 SB

I heard the Twins owner was mouthing off saying that he "hopes" the Twins meet the Yankees in the 1st round because he "knows the Twins can beat them".

He's out of his ******* mind.  On two counts.  For starters, the Yankees are going to thrash his team.  Secondly, you're always eliminated in the first round.  So you hope for Oakland.  Not the Yankees.

See you in the second round, assuming the Tigers don't give you any trouble.   ;)

And big thanks to KC for the assist!   :P
