Happy Happy, Joy Joy. And we're working on an extension for Derrick Lee too. Moises is in the last year of his contract, so that's nine million gone after the season is over. I know Patterson is a very, very good center fielder, but I'm sure that'll translate to left well. We need to get a guy that can lead off. Mark Grudzahoozik ain't gonna cut it.
In the context of baseball, the use of drugs hurts only the player. In the context of baseball, the use of alcohol hurts only the player. In the context of baseball, womanizing hurts whom? Maybe the wife of the player? In the context of baseball, felonies are crimes against society, not against baseball. In the context of baseball, gambling is the only crime against baseball.
Gambling, in the context of baseball, is a capital offense and Rose has richly earned-- hell, he agreed to-- his death sentence. Let him hang.

Cubs definitely have the best rotation in NL. We may see that Cubs/Red Sox world series after all. The world might end then, I mean if you believe in all that "curse" crap and stuff.

Cub tickets for Wrigley went on sale at 10 AM today. As of 8:55 PM, 22 games are already sold out. Wow -- us Cub fans are optimistic. We haven't had back-to-back .500+ seasons since '71-72 (IIRC).
Of course, I've got tickets to three games there already, plus some lined up for Miller Park, too.
Red Sox put their tickets on sale a couple of weeks ago and sold out the whole season, except for some standing room only tickets available for the Devil Rays series in April
Green monster seats and the new seats on the roof in RF are going on sale later. I think those ones you will have to go to the park or call in to buy them. They didn't have the monster seats on sale over the internet last year.
Why will the Red Sox win it all in 2004? Because of new center fielder: Jesus Christ.
Wood did have unhittable stuff there for a while. Any game in the playoffs where you have as many hits and RBI at the plate as hits and runs you give up on the mound, you and your team are in good shape. And the Braves got lucky.
