Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

Speaking of Third Base, Chase Utley was seen taking ground balls at Third Base. I know that the Philies have an up and coming Second Baseman and with Chase getting older, I think a move to Third Base would be a good idea.

Well the Braves didn't win a single series on their west coast swing not even against San Diego. It looks like my Bravos are getting ready for another miserable Setpember.

Loving that sweep of the Red Sox.

I wish it was more meaningful, but I really hate those guys, so....

I could see that happening.

People fail to realize how difficult Third Base is (almost as difficult defensively as shortstop, but expected to be a power position). If his arm strength is capable of handling it, I could see it since it's often viewed as a "retirement" position for middle infielders (Cal Ripken, A Rod, etc. all moved there). Plus, the Phillies could use some power from there and a healthy Utley could do that.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

I got a playoff invoice in the mail last week from the Orioles horray! I sure hope i can afford to go tho! Right now I dont have 9 dollars for a ticket to a inexpensive seat at a game, so i am pretty sure I won't be able to pay for the increased cost playoff ones. I would have gone to so many more games this year but people only have so much money to spend on entertainment, and since every game is on tV in HD, and you dont have to drive downtown and pay for the gas, tunnel, parking, food and other random stuff like batting helmets for the children its just too much. I mean the cheapest seat in the upper deck is 9 dollars!

I mean i've loved the orioles as long as I can remember watching them back in 1988 when i was 5 or so. and I really need food and shelter and to pay my car insurance over a baseball game. That being said I still attended 3 games already this season against the Tigers and Twins. I also against my better reasoning went last Sunday against the Jays but thunderstorms came all day and after waiting around and wandering around Camden Yards for 3 hours waiting for it to stop it was cancled.

A-Rod moved to third due to the presence of one Derek Sanderson Jeter blocking him.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

Yeah, I know. I considered dropping that part. But it's still a position that's viewed as not as demanding as Shortstop so you can just focus on hitting power instead, when, in reality, it's just as difficult.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

I somehow see the BBWA picking someone else rather than a knuckle baller. they are an odd group.

I would LOVE to see him win it though.

Nice job Mets stealing one late. That was an entertaining game, neither team is playing for anything, but it was a hard fought game.

The Mets fundamental breakdowns in the field continue to chap my ass though.

The Dinger Machine can suck Cishak's sweaty jock.

As a fan of a team with nothing to play for, the occasional dramatic comeback is about as good as it gets.

Ok, Medlan is for real. No way they don't run him out there in a one game playoff right?

In other news, Dan Uggla is now a bench player.
