They had a few bad breaks and poor relief pitching with the Yankees, they should have won at least one game if not two of that series. However the Reds just dominated us for those games, they look like a formidable team.

I disagree with you, this series could go either way. We have Niese, Young and Dickey pitching this series. Niese will go against Pettitte. This is a toss up, we have a tough time against lefties by being such a lefty dominated team. Young vs Nova, we will loose this game big time. Young is the wrong kind of pitcher for Yankee Stadium, I predict he gives up several home runs. The RA Dicky vs CC Sabathia, this is a game everyone should watch. Again this is a toss up, I can see it being an intense game.

Speaking of the Mets, what the hell is with them.

Swept by Yanks
Sweep Tampa
Swept by Reds
Sweep the O's

Consistently inconsistent. They're f'd in the a this weekend.
This series is at Shiti Field. CC vs. RA should be awesome. This whole power knuckleball thing Dickey has going on is wild. And CC is just awesome. But yeah, Chris Young may be 9' 16" tall, but he throws like my grandma, and she died in '97.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

^I mistyped that, I meant to say to Pitch against the Yankees. When I typed that, I knew they were playing at Citi. Maybe I thought they were playing at Yankee stadium. Oh well, thanks for pointing out my blunder, I am a Mets fan after all.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

Most Mets fan are a blunder

Though I am loving watching them nightly now that I am back in NY. A solid dose of Red Sox games for 4 years was no good.

But I will miss the Pats come football season. Time mother!$^**@# Warner doesn't show the NFL network, and my CBS afffiliate shows the goddamned Jets.

Word is that Charlie Sheen - yes, that one - will join one of the Fox MLB broadcasts this weekend. Please, for the love of all that's holy, let it NOT be the Yankees/Mets game, because that's the one I'll be watching....

There's no football equivalent to MLB.TV? Ouch. I feel for ya, dude.

As for the Mets: Fans are all right. Frank Francisco should shut the hell up, though.

Frank Francisco is a moron and I don't trust him to save a thing. Dude is the second coming of Armando BEnitez.

Didn't Francisco once throw a chair at a heckler in Oakland during a game? And ended up hitting the guy's wife instead?

Edit: Oh crap...Sheen's in the booth...

So Papelbon blew his first save yesterday, went back in the dugout and offered 5 grand to the player who gets a walkoff homerun against the Rays. First batter up, Jim Tome (yes, Jim Tome) hit a homerun to win it. That's pretty cool.

You've less to worry about, he's on the DL.

Also, Youkilis traded to White Sox

Jeepers, what a weird trade.

I can see what the Red Sox see in Stewart, as he's a nice reclamation project and a decent little haul. I don't know what the fuck Cherington wants with a 28-year-old Lillibridge, though, considering his only value is his defense. And instead of trying to get some lottery ticket low-level prospect as a throw-in, the Sox are eating money, too? The maximum upside here is that Stewart winds up as a barely competent 4/5 starter, but he's still stuck in AAA at 25. (Well, best case is he's a better starter than Daniel Bard, but then again, most AAA pitchers are.)

In a vacuum, it just doesn't make any sense to trade a still-valuable piece for a guy with a career ERA of 6 and a 28-year-old whose second position listed on Baseball Reference is "pinch runner." Crawford's going to be out for another month, just stash Youkilis in left and hope his offense rebounds, instead of trading him at his lowest career point with more than a month to go before the deadline.

Ordinarily, I'd say that it's a gamble for the White Sox, considering Youkilis' health is a serious red flag and his bat speed is slowing considerably, but he isn't going to have a hard time beating Orlando Hudson's .250 OBP, and considering how little they gave up, it's a decent deal for them. The only downside I can see is that with Konerko, Dunn, Pierzynski and Youkilis, that has to be the slowest team in the majors.

Kenny Williams is the most schizophrenic GM.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

I was wondering why Youkilis was getting traded until I saw Will Middlebrooks play on TV all weekend. He's better than Youk and deserves that spot.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

Yeah, at this point Middlebrooks is clearly the better option. I'm going to miss Youkilis, but it was time for a change. And I really wasn't expecting a huge return for him, given his age, recent health issues, and declining stats. So a decent utility infielder and an inconsistent pitcher with high upside isn't too awful, IMO. I don't know if both Nick Punto and Brent Lillibridge will still be wearing a Red Sox uniform in August, though. They seem kind of redundant.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

I love watching Bryce Harper of the Nats. Interesting stat comparing him and Mickey Mantle at the same age. He's better than the Mick in some stats. I also like Mike Trout of the Angels. I predict he'll be the Tim Salmon of this decade.
