Unemployed?

I heard a few things around the same time, put them together and got me wondering. Supposedly congress is going to vote whether to extend unemployment benefits past 99 weeks.  And I heard Jeter's...

Opposite of CC

Congrats to the Yankees and the umpires on the well earned victory. While not taking anything away from our great season, in this country when things go wrong, we love to place the blame somewhere. ...

waivers

Stupid question here about waivers: Since GMJ has a no-trade clause (which he could choose to waive), are the Angels allowed to place him on waivers this month (and be forced to pull him back if...

End of the line for Q?

I loved him while he was in his prime, but with so few spots on the active roster for backup position players, I don't think we can carry him anymore.   The best of use of Q was as a backup at...

Poll: where does Frankie rank?

Obviously we have been spending a lot of time wondering if he is going to be resigned and how much he should get, but I think first we have to know: Where does he rank among baseball's best...

AL Projections

Based on current standings and run differential from 2007 and 2008.  These are very accurate power rankings, I think.  These are projected wins at the end of the regular season.  I posted once...

D-Mac goes Bat S**t

Our old buddy cracked 3 HR's in a game yesterday.  He is leading the PCL in HR's with 15, and is 6th in the league in OPS with a 1.056 Curiously 6 of the top 8 hitters in OPS in the PCL are third...

The 2008 Marlins biggest(?) problem

In 2007 the biggest problem with the Fish was their awful D as hits were dropping in everywhere as measured by DER and team zone rating. It's too early in the season to focus too much on any one...

How much money will the highest paid Marlin make in 2008?  (best guess)I figure this would be good to have on the right, it should be awhile before it drops off.  You can post your guess as a...

Mariners suck

A few weeks ago there was a poll on what result we wanted from the 4 game Mariners / A's series, and I voted that I hoped the Mariners kill them.  The A's tendendency to roll in the 2nd half...

Let's start the 2nd half right!

Side Salad

We all know Nipples stared slow this year, but anything can happen in 100 to 200 at bats. I wonder if we realize just how good of a hitter he is as a catcher. Over the last few years I think there...

What should we do about 3B?

It looks like the one position that is a mess for us is the hot corner.  Everywhere else we have something going on at least.  The Angels are 30 out of 30 in OPS by their 3rd basemen, more than 100...

Range in CF

This is from ESPN (non-insider), hopefully I am not breaking rules and only bending them.  GMJ had a crappy Zone rating last year for some reason, and yet he is not doing so hot this year either....
