  3. Indians trying to keep Thome

    I'm unsure if they'll keep him or not, but despite cutbacks, he is one steady (and powerful) hand in the daily lineup: Indians set to make pitch to Thome Oct. 30, 2002 SportsLine.com wire reports CLEVELAND -- The Cleveland Indians are going to try and knock free agent Jim Thome's high socks off. The club will begin efforts to re-sign Thome on Thursday when they meet with the team's career home run leader and his agent, Pat Rooney, at Jacobs Field.

  4. Jeff Kent to Dodgers???!!

    Rumor has it that Mr. Nice guy Jeff Kent will be going to the Dodgers to hit in front of Shawn Green and benefit once again from having a major lefthanded slugger batting behind him in the order! I'll tell you this much...all year I thought the Giants made a serious mistake for not batting Kent behind Bonds in order to get Barry more hittable pitches and less walks, but I don't know if Kent would have done much better than Santiago. I do think JT Snow would have been the best choice because...

  5. Question about Post Season Rosters

    I thought that you had to be on the roster before August 31st in order to be eligible for the Post Season roster. The only reason I ask is because K-Rod was brought up on 9/18. Does anyone know the official rules?

  6. Mark Grace foregoes $3M option yr, files as FA, expected to re-sign

    I don't know if this will be a new trend or not this year, but it is interesting seeing a player tear up a contract, then starting out fresh. Grace expected to re-sign with Arizona Posted: Friday November 01, 2002 6:37 PM PHOENIX (AP) -- Mark Grace agreed to forego the $3 million option year of his contract and filed for free agency on Friday but is expected to re-sign with the Arizona Diamondbacks for less money.

  7. Forty-five Dollars To See The Parade! Lmao.

    I haven't seen anyone mention this. Disney - Eisner - had the Angels' victory parade in Disneyland and charged $45 a pop for fans to see it!! Too sick. Too crass for words. I know the Disney company has for decades tried to squeeze out every penny they can, but this is a new low.

  15. The Beginning of the Monkey Dynasty?

    Well, much to my dismay, the Angels won the World Series, thanks to Dusty Baker and his bullpen full of chokers. Is this merely the beginning of the new dynasty? Let's face it, they are young and now they have the experience of what it takes to win it all. I see so many similarities between this team and the 1996 Yanks....only the Angels have much better hitters and weaker starters. However... look at their bullpen and you will see a carbon copy of the Yankee squad. They even have their...

  16. The Life of Reilly: 'Back Off or I'll Snap!'

    'Back Off or I'll Snap!' Don't you feel a little sorry for Barry Bonds? True, Bonds has the warmth of a dyspeptic IRS auditor. He dispenses more snarls than twin Dobermans. He's rude, insular and grouchy. And that's on his birthday. But nobody, not even Barry Bonds, deserves a World Series week like he just had. All his life he'd dreamed of getting to one of these babies, and when he did it brought him all the joy of an upper G.I. cleansing. Pitchers walked him like a Fifth...
