Until November? You mean SINCE November? Cause if it was UNTIL November, i’d be crying my eyeballs out right now

No, it means that after next week, there will be baseball until November.

Actually, it’s both. No baseball since November (’10) and until November (’11).

i think it works either way. since november obviously makes sense but “the last week without baseball(no baseball up until this point) until november” look at it this way. first week with baseball next week, until november(there will be baseball until november starting next week). hope that made sense and that i didnt piss anyone off by being the grammar nazi

If Sizemore is traded, I don’t know how much time Cleveland fans will have to wait to have another caliber team. In their playoff push in 2007, they had Sabathia, Lee, Westbrook, Betancourt, VMart, Peralta, Gutierrez, Belliard, Garko, Blake…
I can’t believe that 3 years later, only Sizemore, Carmona, Pronk and Cabrera are the only ones remaining on the roster.. Yeah, it was that kind of year that Perez and Lewis pitched great but it was ONLY 3 years ago..

Belliard was already gone. I mainly know that because I remember his tongue from the Cardinals’ 2006 playoff push. But hey, if they stay in the cellar long, maybe we’ll get to see Major League 3!

Exposfan

Yeah I remember, that’s why Cabrera had been on the team in the final weeks.
I’d like to see Wild Thing close the games

If they’d traded for Jason Motte instead of Chris Perez, that would be the case.

Yeah, I’d love to see Charlie Sheen close out games with his entourage of Porn Stars swarming him as he gets the final out! Lol!

East Coast Bias

LOL what the hell…

there already was a major league 3

I could see Sizemore going to the Dodogers in a trade

4 years 6 months ago

Dodgers dont have the prospects to make it happen or money to lock up Sizemore. Dont bet on that trade happening.

RedSoxDynasty

How about that crazy Paul Hoynes stealing Nick Cafardo’s scoop on Sizemore and Carmona! As usual a Cleveland writer gets the scoop on his own team a month after a real writer prints it first! Yeah, I’m baiting those Indian fans who said Cafardo was a hack for insinuating that Sizemore would be shopped! How’s that egg on your face feel now that your own writers are saying the same?

Here’s my AL Central predictions:

Tigers-95-67
White Sox-92-70
Twins-90-72
Indians-68-94
Royals-59-103

The Royals might have the best minor league system, but this year won’t be any better than the last 24 seasons. Expect a big three-way race at the end of the season between the Tigers, White Sox, Twins.

im a tigers fan, but im curious who your favorite team is. im not sure if your biased or not. just askin.

Bet nobody in that division wins 90 games.

Motor_City_Bombshell

Even as a Tigers fan I think this projection is rather generous. I suspect there to be less wins and less of a gap between all three teams. They’re all going to be around 87-91 wins because they’re all going to be beating themselves up, and if the race isn’t as exciting as everyone is anticipating in the AL Central, I will be very very surprised.

Although I’d like to see the Tigers finish first, a lot has to go right for them and a little has to go wrong for Chicago and Minnesota. Not trying to hate against my own team here, but realistically, they’re not as complete as Minnesota and they don’t have the offense Chicago does.

On the plus side though, they do have potentially the best rotation and best bullpen, so that’s something you can take from it. I expect all three teams to be in it until the very very end.

Arizona had the number 6 pick last year and used it to select a guy who by most boards was slated to go in the early supplemental rounds. Although i suppose they have had good drafting overall.

The O’s deserve credit for signing Guerrero? I guess. After all, Vlad should take them from fifth place to an outside shot at fourth.

Guest
4 years 6 months ago

i know, and who else would get credit for signing him?

Rabbitov

Its not even worth replying to these lame comments anymore . . oh wait, darnit.

4 years 6 months ago

I’m not trying to be snide. I’m just saying that saying the O’s “deserve credit” for paying full retail value (and then some, arguably) for a guy who is unlikely to change their place in the standings, is maybe overselling it.

yay superbowl is over

Not so sure Orioles should be congratulated for spending $20 million more to end up in 4th or 5th place again.

you cant fill a ballpark with scrubs year after year. eventually you gotta make it look like you intend to compete to fill the seats

I wonder if the Yankees have prospects to offer the Dodgers for Clayton Kershaw…

YanksFanSince78
4 years 6 months ago

Yes but the Dodgers probably aren’t interested in trading him.

East Coast Bias

Don’t tease me like that.

The Yanks will go with what they have until mid season, then they will hope to get a upgrade in Carpenter, Dempster, Jackson, Kuroda, or Buerhle. Long term they have 8 young pitchers that could develope into a good starter. Brackman, Noesi, and Phelps we will see sometime this year with Betances, Banuelos, Warren, Stonebuner, and Mitchell next year. I look for 2 or 3 of these players to help the Yanks next year. It’s tough to be counting on AJ but when I look at his stats I see 11 yrs 3.99ERA. His only bad year was last year. If he pitches to that ERA the Yanks will be fine. The same goes for Beckett with the Sox. These two players could be the keys to their seasons. Scary for the Yanks.

I’m pretty sure they consider Grant Green their shortstop going on. Or even Pennington who’s pretty good defensively as well. If they want to improve their production they’d probably just call up Green.

The Dodgers who need a LF could use Beltran. The Reds could use Reyes at short over Jarnish. The Angels could use K-Rod. They could also use Reyes as a lead off hitter. Eric Aybar, the incumbent SS, drove in 29 RBI in 534 ABs. They could also move Callayspo off of 3b. He had only 61 runs and 56 RBIs in 562 ABs.

Reyes is a dynamic player when he is healthy and the Angels need offense.

YanksFanSince78
4 years 6 months ago

The A’s are not trading Anderson or Gio for Reyes. Reyes is not the run producer that the A’s need anyway.

Ferrariman

pennington isn’t that bad.

he’s played like a superstar until 2009, and he wasn’t even terrible in 2009. People are overreacting to his 2010. He might never recover, but if he does, he’s an instant all-star
