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.



Cmon guys need a few more people and creepin up on the start of the season!

Inital thoughts about the season? Anyone?

A few quick thoughts on my part.
Nomar's on the DL: I can't even imagine how anyone could be suprised by this.

Beckett was dominant the other night. If Boston stays healthy they have a strong pitching staff and could be a lot better then a lot of people think.

Sabathia injures himself inning 3 opening day...... He'll be back in 3-5 weeks. That sucks for the Indians. He's a workhorse who let's their pen rest. They really need him.

And I still say Pedro and Maddux can dominate. Something about guys with great control and who simply know how to pitch. If Pedroa stays healthy I'd predict 18+ wins.

Mind you I am really only going to be talking about the AL East, but I'm still confident the Jays will be right there with the Red Sox and Yankees come playoff time.

Im not sold on Toronto. NYs lineup has Cano batting 9th. Thats ridiculous. Theyre gonna score ALOT of runs this year. And if there pitchiing stays together at all theyre gonna be tough to beat. Boston has the possibility of a good season with a rotation anchored by Schill and Beckett (assuming they stay healthy). And a pretty potent lineup as well. Toronto could sneak in IF they stay healthy and NY and Boston suffer key injuries. But come on, Toronto cant compete with NY and Boston if they stay healthy. While I like Molina and Glaus, Im not as sold on Ryan and Burnett being saviours. How many career wins does Burnett have? What his career record? And doesnt he have injury issues as well? And Ryan has, what, 47 career saves? Jesus closers get close to that in a season. I just dont think they have enough. I like Roy, but he cant carry em.

Cubs 4-2, so I'm happy. I can't wait until Murton busts out and the whole nation goes crazy.


Now all we need is for Mark Prior and Kerry Wood to get there shit together. Damn, the team will improve.

If I was going to be home this is definately what would be on my tv (I might record it anyway.) I think it would be big if Burnett can outplay Beckett this early in the year.

BTW Rylinkus, what did you think about Chacin (Blue Jays third option) beating your ace?

Becketts the best pitcher when healthy. Better then Dontrelle even IMO. If he can solve his blister issues he could become one of the all time greats.

You can call the Unit NY's ace all you want, but Id still take Mussina. And Pavano once he gets back. Just seems Johnson wont admit when hes hurting anymore. But the Jays definately shelled Johnson. Then again, Mussina cut up Torontos lineup pretty good. wink.gif

Burnett's on the DL with elbow issues. This is the stuff that scares me about him. I think Toronto overpaid a bit for him. I hope he can at least stay healthy this eyar so they see some return on their invetment.

Yeah man not cool at all. We spent alot of money on him and obviously were very optimistic about the injury. Bottom line is we need him healthy.

If healthy Im not sure he's worth 11mil a year. Injured hes definately not.

On a side Note: Pedro's now 4-0. 11 Ks last game. He's looking damn impressive.
