Who is your AL team?

Question-- should we let Milwaukee win?

Not to be ridiculous but... shouldn't we just toss the last 3 games vs. Milwaukee? Milwaukee's starting  rotation is a mess.   Their bullpen is a mess. It would behoove us to play the Dodgers,...

What does everyone think of Marquis?

I saw him pitch today against the Phils.  Granted, they were missing two of their mainstays, but thought overall he looked really good.  Some of his inside sinkers were unhittable.  A lot of why...

Question re: Marquis (again)... sorry

Hi again.  Sorry to ask yet another question on this topic. If nobody else is going to want Marquis, why not just hold onto the guy?  Who knows when Lieber, being 40 years old, might go down with...

Questions: Dempster, Marshall, Gallagher

Hello;Since things are so slow, I thought maybe it wouldn't be such an annoyance to ask a few questions.  Why is Gallagher being 'projected' to be a 'mid to bottom of rotation pitcher'?  He has...

Question: Why won't Hendry pull trigger?

Hello; quick question for you all.Why won't Hendry pull the trigger on a big deal?  If the Reds pull of a trade for Bedard, the NL central suddenly becomes extremely competitive.  I would hope that...
