I never bought any hats at my head shop, only water pipes for uh, um tobacco.

I dig.

So that's why everybody always looks at me funny when I ask to go there.

Well, the NL Central is tough.  But, the Reds do have 2 quasi-studs at the top, which is more than most other teams have.  Arroyo and Harang is a pretty damn decent 1-2.  Look at the rest of that division.  Astros have just Oswalt.  Cubs have Zambrano though I think Rich Hill is going to emerge big time.  Pittsburgh has got dick.  Milwaukee has Sheets/Capuano which is equal to the Reds.  St. Louis has got nothing after Carpenter.

So, I think the Reds actually are tied for the best starting staff in the division with the Cubs and Brewers.

Bullpen is another story.

Picking up Soriano was soooo huge for the Cubs that I think with Lee back they are going to contend again.  And if they get a healthy Prior back...watch out

I'm gonna have to see Dice-K abuse someone other than the Royals before I board his bandwagon.  Once you get by Mark Teahen there's nobody even remotely challenging in that lineup.

Yeah... ooooh, he managed to beat the Royals.  Big friggin' deal.   He looked good, but I've seen a lot of bad pitchers (*cough* Carlos Silva *cough*) look great against the Royals.  It will be interesting to see how he fares in that first trip to Yankee Stadium, that's for sure.  ;)


I'm fairly positive about my Twins so far... but now we see the ugly side.  Silva and Ponson vs. the White Sox this weekend?  I have a feeling we're going to lose a LOT of games at the back end of the rotation this year if we're force to stick with those two.   :-\

I miss Liriano...  :'(

I know I'm biased here, but I liked what I saw - bad opposition or not.  The Royals are still a major league baseball team and they did slap around Schilling three nights before.  He had good command, his pitches had excellent movement and he didn't seem to be phased by nerves, hordes of media and the immense pressure Boston (both fans and media) puts on the Red Sox.  I'm not ready to annoint him the next Cy Young, but for a first MLB start he looked great.  Like Jeff said, the true test will be when he faces the Yankees and some of the other power line ups in the AL like Toronto, Cleveland, White Sox and Detroit.

ARod just took Schilling deep for the 2nd time tonight  :o

There's no doubt ARod is having the best April of any MLB player in the entire history of the sport.

After 2 weeks of April baseball, Arod stands at .367 12 HR 30 RBI and 19 Runs scored.  1 swiped bag.

Those numbers ought to look even scarier at the end of the month.

Whew!

Dice-K actually gasped in horror at ARod's blast, LOL:

Does anybody know what on God's green earth happened to Brad Lidge? 

He literally has not been the same since this moment:



He was one of the top 3 closers in baseball 13 months ago, and since that time has an ERA 5.00+ and a WHIP at 1.40.

This is the same guy who was good for a 2.00 ERA and a 1.10 WHIP.  He racked up K's like a starter for ****'s sake.

He must be trying to pitch through injury, but this really has gone on long enough already.

Did you have the same reaction when the Yanks bullpen blew a 4 run lead in the bottom of the eighth? LOL:

Looks like ARod is playing for a new contract next season.
