No, it's my new number one spot in this year's baseball league, the same place you'll find me on October 1st, holding my second consecutive title.

Though I was considering giving him your enormous collection of losing ribbons, including no titles, plus your fourth place ribbon from this year's baseball league.  But shipping for a collection of non-titles of your size would cost a fortune, and I have far too many clone troopers to buy to pay that hefty sum.

We'll see, there is still 5 months of baseball to play, my pitching staff turns it around here and you'll be the one collecting another participation ribbon, of which, I have a nice collection :P

Went to the ballgame yesterday afternoon and saw one hell of a pitcher's duel between Santana and Colon.

Both Colon and Santana threw 2-hitters, too bad for Johan his 2 hits were HRs.  Both Colon ahd Santana looked nasty out there.  It was a great game to watch, just too bad that my Twins were on the losing side of the effort...  :'(

It's too bad Gardy feels the need to play the B-Squad every few games.  I wish he would play his best players as much as possible and use the bench guys late in games or to give guys a day off once in a while.  Starters should play at least 150 games a year if healthy IMO.

Dodgers are off to one crazy start! They came back to win today at Mil 8-6. Go Blue  8)

You spoke too soon...  :-\  Slowed down quite a bit right after that, but fortunately we just pulled a nice sweep off of the Rockies to right the ship again, and get back to the best record in the NL.  Doing way better than I expected.  Now if I could just figure out who most of these guys are, I'd be in much better shape.  BAD year to remove the names from their jerseys...  ::)

Angels are still playing decent, and aside from the A-Rod homer barrage last week, managed to take 2 of 3 from the Yanks.  Then, they roll into MN and finally put a stop to Santana's 17 game winning streak (with only two hits, both dingers).  Nice.  8)

Still can't believe what the hell's going on with the White Sox and Orioles, but I guess sports are just wierd that way sometimes.  I expect that both of those teams will eventually level off and come crashing back down to earth eventually.

I just knew that you were going to bring that up...  >:(

I like to focus on the positives though, which was us winning the final game, and whipping up on your staff ace.  So shuddupaya face!  :-*

I wouldn't call two solo homers "whipping up" on Santana.   ::)  Other than those two dingers, he had the Angel batters on their heels most of the game.

What I would call it is a total lack of run support thanks to a great game pitched by Colon... he looked really good out there on the mound.  I think like 8 of the first 9 hitters managed only piddly grounders to SS/2B and it looked like it was gonna get ugly for my squad.

The first 8 innings of the game went like 2 hours it was so fast, if not for the Twins "rally" in the 8th that caused 2 pitching changes, it would have been over in like 2hr, 15min.

Hey!  I was actually there, so I can quip all I want...  :-*

Anyway, it sucked.  That Vlad HR was just barely fair (it bounced off the Foul Pole for cryin out loud).  It was a great game to watch despite the fact that the Twinks lost... but as Scotty pointed out, we still took 2 out of 3, so be happy with your victory over our JV-squad we had out there on Sunday.

The decision to keep sitting Mauer is also perplexing, let him go more than a day or two, there is no reason this team needs 4 catchers on the roster, none at all :-X

Bonds -

First, will he make it back this year?

I kinda hope he does only because I want to see him come to town when the Twins play the Giants, but I don't know if he will be the same player with his bum knee.

Second, will he have to move to the AL to be a DH to end his career?

Can you picture Bonds in Pinstripes?  You know if they Giants decide to move him, the Yankers would be all over it.  I'd love to see where the bidding war would end up...
