  3. Oops! Bad choice of words for Red Sox CEO

    Oops! Bad choice of words for Red Sox CEO By JIMMY GOLEN AP Sports Writer http://bigleaguers.yahoo.com/mlbpa/news/ap/20021105/ap-redsox-clemens.html BOSTON (AP) -- When they bought the Boston Red Sox, the team's new owners knew they were inheriting a legacy of futility and dumb deals -- and a fandom that's extremely sensitive about it. Chief executive officer Larry Lucchino accidentally touched on some old wounds Tuesday when he described free agent Tom Glavine as being ``in the...

  6. Should Pitchers be considered for MVP?

    I would like to hear opinions on this.. In my opinion..the answer is no. That's what the CY Young if for..the best pitcher in basball.. It would make sense if pitcher in both leagues hit..and a pitcher had 20 wins..and era of 2.50..and a batting average of 300 with 35 homers and 115 rbi.. But we don't see that...

  11. Wow..the MVP race in the AL..how DIVERSE.

    Sports Illustrated taps Soriano for AL MVP... MSNBC does not even have him in the top 2...and names A-ROD.. It's amazing the different perspectives on how an MVP should be picked. Great numbers while a last place team vs. Unexpected numbers from a 2baseman who is on Post Season team... The debate will rage on no matter who gets it..it's going to be a controversial award..

  12. Some funny lines from the SF Chronicle

    Jay Leno on the Angels' celebration: "Today at Disneyland, they celebrated by having a parade down Main Street. There's something that doesn't happen every day! Boy, how unusual!" The Tampa Bay Devil Rays' hiring of manager Lou Piniella makes Joe Arcilla of American Canyon wonder, "If a base is thrown in anger in a domed stadium and no one is there to hear it, does it make a sound?" "With all their problems and distractions this year," says Janice Hough, "at least the Mets didn't have...

  13. Wishful Changes for the Post Season

    How many of you detest the Best of 5 game format for the first round of the playoffs like I do? I hated it when they first proposed it and will always despise it! I was so happy the day they expanded the ALCS from the same dreadful Best of 5 format to the Best of 7 in 1986(?). Then what do the brilliant minds in charge of MLB decide to do a few years later on? Yup... not only do they add another layer of playoffs, but they friggin' go back to the awful best of 5 format!!! Argh!!!! ...

  16. Did all the intentional walks to Bonds ruin the World Series for you too?

    ================================================= "All the intentional walks ruined the World Series for me as well and for Barry Bonds. I asked him if he was having fun because of all the walks and he said he really wasn't. It's just a shame. (Former Astros manager Larry) Dierker started that process last year and everyone built on it. It's a black eye on baseball. I don't know how you can change it though. There is no way you can control it really. It's one of the shortcomings of the game."...

  20. 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...
