S(he) failed

anyone else have a problem with the title of this post? I should think it would be: (s)he failed ?

Yankees Ink Pettitte To One-Year Deal

cool your jets, dyams. he's not tallking shit, he's saying Pettitte is not worth 16 mil a season... not exactly a bold statement, considering the guy's 4.20 ERA last season. Forget run support (which gets considerably better with Carlos Lee playing 82 games in a matchbox...) Pettitte is on his way downhill, and wants to cash in. Good for him, the Yankees are the perfect organization to do so with. But thank you Pettitte for being an instrumental part of the 'Stros WS run. You're a great pitcher. Don't let the door hit you on the way out.

Mexico's Ayala Out For Season

/begin "beating dead horse" routine: the whole purpose for spring training is to slowly bring along players that have been taking the winter off. it's the equvalent to stretching before running a race, except in this case the race is a 162+ game season, so of course the stretching takes longer. none of the preseason games matter, except for the forementioned "stretching" and assessing the readiness of younger players or ones coming off injury. the gripe that all the owners had with the WBC was that these players would have to rush through this whole period of "stretching" so they could play games that mattered in the WBC. /end "beating dead horse" routine so the long and short of it is: zippinglou doesn't get it. But many thanks for the list of injuries, which will help in my fantasy draft this afternoon!

Classic a Good Show for Baseball

you want to know who will win the WBC? look no further than the heart of DR's batting order... the 3-7 hitters had a .600 OBP or better... look at the line on Beltre: .600 w/ 5 RBI 2 HR and an SB? Guess i'm moving him back up on my fantasy cheat sheet...
