Red Sox 3B Lowell on Fidel Castro: "I hope he does die."

Mike Lowell is batting .235 for the last 30 days, and .125 for August (I know only 2 days). Did Castro have anything to do with that! Let's play some baseball.

Did Roger Clemens deserve a trade back to the Red Sox?

If the feeling is that certain players "deserve" to be traded to certain teams, than wouldn't it follow that Pedro Martinez deserves to be traded to Tampa Bay? He could then look at Don Zimmer every day!

But Does He Pitch or Catch?

Let's see, a columnist writes a column disagreeing with a comment that Guillen made. Another reporter asks Guillen his opinion of that column getting the exact reaction he wanted so that he could write a column. Everyone got what they wanted and now we're complaining about it. Barrett's suspension is over the first game of the White Sox series with the Cubs. There will be plenty more comments where that one came from!

Does anybody read Marrioti? Maybe you would form a different opinion.

When Ozzie tells you to plunk, you plunk...or get plunked

I just checked MLB stats, if I read it correctly, the most at bats by any National League pitcher so far is 38. There are a whole bunch of pitchers that have been in a number of games and as of yet have not been to the plate.

redsoxgray, I don't know if that would be true. You would have to know how many pitchers actually were hit by pitches this season.

If the top 6 of the top 10 are National League teams, doesn't that mean that the pitcher batting doesn't prevent being thrown at?

Hey fake fans: Make like Damon and leave

You don't have to pass a test to get in, you only need to have a ticket. You don't have to like who your sitting next to. Everyone has different reasons for being at a particular game. In the end its just entertainment!

Barry Bonds to get an Asterisk in Record Book *

The article is stupid and bad satire. As long as anyone plays or is allowed to play baseball, that is their record. If we put footnotes on every player we dislike or like, the record book would be full of asterisks. Just play ball!!

White Sox and Cubs brawl.

timdawg, I heard that the World Series is going to be played by the two teams with the highest attendance from now on! Maybe the Cubs marketing department can find you 23 more worthy players by then.

White Sox and Cubs brawl.

In the past couple of weeks Barret has tried to pick a fight with half of the league. Too bad he didn't show any of that fight when the Cubs were recently in San Francisco!

Garner, Springer suspended for "beaning" Bonds

Its always a matter of who gets hit and who throws the pitch. If Clemens or Shilling hit Bonds everyone would be talking about how a pitcher has to throw inside to be successful, and that's why those two are so great! Let Bonds take off his armor and then maybe we could really see how brave he really is!

Lackey, Kendall ejected as A's brawl past Angels

Yea, I do! Just because National League pitchers have to bat doesn't make them any better or tougher. The next time the National League wins a World Series game let me know. By the way thanks for counting, I didn't know I called Pedro out that many times.

Pedro would have handled it differently, he would have yelled at Kendall to sent out his father so that he could beat the hell out of him. Everybody should just shut up and play baseball!!

Win or lose, Guillen stays the same

Ozzie himself said that "he would rather be lucky than good". Right now he's in the right place at the right time. The test will come over a number of years, including this one! He has everything he needs to win again. We'll see how his luck holds out.

So...who's for real and who's a pretender so far?

"the Cubs haven't had any consistency since the days of Ernie Banks" - just what every Cub fan wants to here - let's relive the Cubs of the 50's and 60's. Check their record for that period, than again maybe they are reliving that era!

Bonds gets needled by fan at PetCo Park

Doesn't MLB already provide extra protection for Bonds? They made an exception for him to wear extra armor on his arm so he can lean over the plate.

Bonds has no respect for any of us, and has even told us that over and over again. Now we should be concerned about him? Who cares!!!

posted by INOALOSER at 04:10 PM on December 05, 2005


Wow, so Bert's better than Catfish Hunter, and Steve Calton! Can we revoke their Hall of Fame credentials to make room for Bert? One statistic was invented long before adjusted ERA, wins and losses. Next season when your favorite team goes 70 and 92, check their adjusted ERA and get back to me. If you like statistics, 287 wins and 250 loses over 22 seasons is 13.045454 wins and 11.363636 loses per season. Is that Hall of Fame?

posted by INOALOSER at 04:06 PM on December 05, 2005


Let's quite playing the World Series because wins and losses are a terrible to judge who is the champion. This isn't T-ball, get off it!

Steinbrenner and his deep pockets

Its a good deal for the Yankees! His entire contract is only 3/4's of what A-Rod makes in a season. The other upside is that he sucked in the post-season too, which will take all the attention off of A-Rod's post-season performances.
