Hamilton......that dude is a total stud.


I completely agree. I might have to try to get to a game when they come into town on the next Ray’s home stand.


Only good thing, is I know the damn Yankees wont do it either, lol.


One thing I have learned is to never count the Yankees out so soon in the season.


but she stalks Alex Rodriguez


I am sure with Arod’s money and looks he has quite a few, even butt ugly celebrities have had stalkers.


Seems the Mets brought the broom to Yankee stadium


Didn’t the Friday game get postponed? The Mets do seem to have this game in hand. Bad call on the foul pole homer, but doesn’t seem like they will need it.

Rays played like a bunch of bushers, poor base running Saturday, 10 walks on Sunday, a good team like the Cards will eat you up making those kinds of mistakes. I am keeping my fingers crossed that the “old” Devil Rays haven’t shown back up.


The cincy reds just swept the indians.


They beat Lee, too! Brooms were out in Boston, as well. They now lead the AL East.

I didn’t get to see the game but watched the highlights. Jon’s a good pitcher, what a great story, wouldn’t be surprised to see a movie done about his battle, I think it would be really inspirational.

I got a little teary eyed when I read about Piazza retiring (okay, I admit it , I am such a girl), I have met him on several occasions. He is one of my all time favorite players, very personable guy, I have never personally witnessed him being rude or put off by fans. I went to a charity event several years ago where he was one of the main attractions. It was a lot of fun, a lot of great players, Lou Brock was there. I hope we get to see Mike doing something on a regular basis like broadcasting on ESPN.
Looks like the Pads maybe in for a “fire sale”, they are in a horrible slump and now Peavy on the DL.

Due to the two nights of blown calls Bud Selig has stepped up his proposals of implementing instant replay. Not sure how I feel about that idea. Watching games at the Trop I have seen some horrible and downright weird calls in my time, but with a game that can last anywhere from 3-5 hours at times, this seems like it could be more of a hindrance then a help.

Rays barely take 2 from the A’s, one game back from Boston and Yanks still in last.

How about that old man Tom Glavine?

I was relieved to read this morning that the injury SD pitcher Chris Young sustained last night appears to be just external with a fracture to his nose, it was pretty scary watching the video. Their catcher Bard appears to have a sprained ankle which also could have been worse. I feel bad for Pujols as well, he seemed pretty upset about it especially to not be able to finish the game. Padres must have really pissed off the baseball Gods, what else can go wrong?

I know, I know, there's no crying in baseball!

The Rays were on TV yesterday which was good cause they got spanked, but I caught the Braves/Mets game, nice win for the Braves and kept an eye on the Marlins/ Dbacks game, (sorry, I had to watch the American Idol finale) good win for the fish.


Im ecstatic about this thread and double yea to other women who follow baseball as much as I do.


Welcome. At times I can be worse than some men when it comes to baseball. Give me a high five girl, Yankees in last place!

I think Pujols became the first player in mlb history to injure 2 players in the same half inning.

Okay, our boy wonder GM, Jon Daniels, has been ripped here lately for his trades. We got rid of Edinson Volquez to the Reds for Josh Hamilton....so we traded the ERA leader in the NL, who is 7-1, for our centerfielder of the future, who is leading in all triple crown categories right now.....can you really be ripped for that? Now, the Chris Young/Adrian Gonzalez for Phil Nevin/I can't remember spare pitcher trade to the Padres was stupid....oh, the Gagne trade to BoSox for Gabbard/Murphy is working out well for us...and time will tell on the Texiera trade to Atlanta....those players in return are all still in the minors right now. So, he's made a couple of bad ones, and he's made a couple of good ones....I think our anger should be directed more at Tom Hicks....although I am trying to get a job with the Rangers, so maybe I should be a little more tolerant of him......

The White Sox are riding an 8 game winning streak, including the back half of a 7-3 road trip. 3 game sweeps of an unimpressive Giants team and the inexplicably light hitting Indians.
I really appreciate the short term success but unless Cabrerra/Swisher/Thome /Konerko start hitting at least their weight, it's bound to be short term. You can't have 4 starters batting less than .220.

Cubs are now the only team in baseball that has not had a 3-game losing streak all season. :) Snapped a 2-game skid tonight with a huge 12-3 win over the Pirates.

Arizona should be kickin' themselves for letting Carlos Quentin get away. He's leading the AL in homers & hit a walk-off shot tonight to beat the Angels.

The Blue Jays should take some lessons from the Devil Rays. Let's just tank for 6 or 7 straight years and finish last and emerge with some draft talent. The talent the Jays have right now is amazing, especially the pitching, although, there is no chemistry in the lineup. Of course as I say that, they've won 5 in a row.

Somebody pinch me, smack me upside the head or something! The Space Time Continuum has been disrupted and I have been thrust into an alternate 2008 (think “Back To The Future”). As of this moment the Rays have the best record in the majors and it is almost the end of May. I will be doing my Snoopy dance until I get knocked over. Since there is no snoopy icon....this will have to do.

Sure, you can. If there is one thing I have learned it is that no matter what someone will find something to complain about. Believe it or not there are still many Devil Ray fans that want Maddon to be axed, this team has never been at the top in the division past the first week in April but the manager is crap!


Hicks....although I am trying to get a job with the Rangers, so maybe I should be a little more tolerant of him.


Don’t get me started on him!

Got to see Hamilton in the game last night, I can’t tell you how good it is to see him playing again. There is a nice write about him on the Rays website and the announcers were talking about him and they did an interview. If that boy can stay on track you should see some spectacular things from him in the future.

I can’t speak for anybody else, but I think AZ is doing just fine.

Isn’t that always the way, Baseball Gods one day and Bush Leaguers the next!

You’re being kind .......................try 10!

Just as a dose, of reality on this day last year the only team playing over .500 was Boston. Today, the only team not batting .500 is NY and they are just slightly under, so it appears for the moment anyway that we have a competitive division.

How about that Scott Kazmir? 10 K’s = free pizza!

How to win when you team's not hitting-
Pitch the ball low and over the plate.

Over the last turn through the rotation, the White Sox have given up 1, 3, 2, 2 & 3 runs. They won 3 of the 5, thanks to last night's outburst-6 runs!- Wow (Took 12 innings, though).

But they've given up only 29 HRs all year (Oakland's the only other team giving less than 40) and their walk totals are top 5.

Force the other team to play small ball and you'll usually have a chance in the end.

Arizona is not doing fine....0-6 recently against both the Cubs & Marlins who are both leading their divisions. They're taking advantage of a weak NL West, but struggling outside their division.

Oh, I don’t know, perhaps if I were the DBacks I might be worried about the Cubs and Fish if I had more than 9 upcoming games against them out of over a 100 that are left to play. Now, if they get down to the end of August and need every win they can get they might be worried before that final match up against the Fish. I would bet like most teams at the moment they figure they will worry about them if/when they meet in the post season and concentrate on the 100+ games that are left in general.



They're taking advantage of a weak NL West,


I find it amusing the NL West being called a weak division due to the Backs domination yet the same thing is said of the NL Central Division (or any division) when the teams are relatively close in the standings. Kind of funny how that works, though it always seems to depend, of course, on where your team falls into the categories.


struggling outside their division.


Since the majority of your games are played within your own division that is where you need to get a good amount of wins in order to make the post season, no? Last time I looked you still had to win your division to be the division champion and be guaranteed a spot in the post season, unless they changed it this year and I missed the announcement on ESPN. Again, it all depends on which argument you choose to use as it is also supposedly “bad” if you can beat teams all over the league but struggle within your own division. So, I still think being in the top of your division is where you want to be first and foremost, that's still the idea, that's still a good thing ...........yea, I think that’s right. Perhaps the fans of a team that has won oh, let’s say 15 division titles so far can help me out here as to whether it is a good thing to win in your own division.


On that note, go Mariners!

I'm pleased with the early returns on the NL All-Star Voting ballot...there is a Cub in the top 5 in every category, which is NUTS!!! But i'm glad to see that we are getting respect from around the country for having the major's top offnese.
