Well, I have a feeling I'm going to be very into baseball this year due to the Blue Jays getting a facelift over the offseason.

Adding Burnett, Overbay, Ryan, Glaus was nice, but without this it would not have been complete.

I think baseball will be watched by a lot this year cause of all the controversies. Overall I think steroids hurt the game in the long run cause now the fans are used to homeruns. Oh well, I pitch so I am glad there will be less.

I still think NYs better. And I can't even begin to get a feel for Boston. There's just so many guys on the team with injury issues, age issues, or whom seem to be past there prime maybe. I have no idea. Maybe they win the AL East, maybe they come in dead last. Well ok, nevermind, that's the Rays place....

Ill say the Dodgers are gonna be good this year though. I just like the offseason moves they made.

I'd do a fantasy league. But I'd like to see at least 8ish people before I waste the time. Any less and there's so many free agents floating that you can correct almost any mistake you make with ease.

BTW, my company made this Globe which will be used during opening and closing cermonies during the WBC finals Monday.

I thought it was kind of cool.

And as a Yankees fan Ill throw this out there. Al Leiter is offically retiring. I always liked the guy and Im sad to see him go. He just always struck me as a classy, nice guy. Something the game needs more of.

BTW, Spency, how do you feel about the season not even being started yet and Burnett already running into elbow issues?

well i got my money riding on the rangers..as long as they can get control of their pitching ..then they should definatly be able to make it to the playoffs at least...

but i guess this is mainly baised as my cousin is their DH..

and id be good for the fantasy league.

Alright guys I made a league.

You can sign up here.

The League ID is 258833 and the password is tsop. If we can't fill it with people from here I'm sure I can find a few people.

Also, about Burnett, see here. Doesn't sound as serious as first thought so I'm not too worried.

Elbow problems are common this time of year. Its nothing to worry about. I am sure he doesnt want to push too hard right now. My guess is with the same pains in September he wouldn't say anything.

He used to play for the Yankees. I always liked that guy. It was a shame NY didnt hold onto him.

Had it been Phil Nevin I would have ridiculed you.

hahaha yah ..

but nah he said playing for the yankees was great and all...but it was too serious of an atmosphere...like when he played for arizona theyd always do pranks and stuff..(the infamous game where the position players (ie. mark grace, etc.) started pitching bc they were saving their bullpin for a later game)<-dont know if anyone heard bout it but it was great.] and now he really likes the rangers because its more laid back ..but still a good ballclub..not to mention hes playing more and had 29 hr's last year
