Sounds like Pineda may be in trouble too.

Apparently his velocity hasn't been where it should, and now going for MRIs on his shoulder.

I remember when I was a baseball fan. Then they came up with a one game wild card playoff.

It's just the way it goes nowadays.... I still love the pace of the game and season. Once you know the season's roster its the one game I like listening to when I'm involved doing something else. It's the ultimate game of stats, and once the better players get in their groove by midsummer even a pitchers dual gets exciting to me.

The Yankees may have their holes in pitching but they will be right there throughout the season.

Right now, however, the AL west is clearly a tough if not the toughest in baseball.... Well at least TX and CA

The NL East should also be interesting. As a Mets fan in Philly...say no more...the Marlins are worth watching for, Wash is not a pushover, Braves will be in it, and Phils have lost Utley forever (the Utley we all knew) and Howard has to come back from a nasty injury (Achilles on a 230lb first baseman), Planco in in question and the kids they counting on are dtill up in the air. Should be interesting

and it is the best game...only game where the defense starts every play and where you don't score with the object the game is played with and where each team is guaranteed an equal number of chances

You infer it but it has to be said, no time limit!

It's true: no CLOCK!

I've been to a Jim Kaat pitched game that lasted under 2 hrs

And we've all watched or been at games that pushed 4 hrs +

sary of the Mets? first game.


Strasburg allowed just two hits
in helping the Nationals take the fi-
nal two games of the three-game
series against their division rival
with stellar pitching ? Ross De-

Can't say I regret the trade... Montero was developing into a good hitter, but not a good catcher.

Tough break, but really the problem with the road to the World Series remains the same... Texas.

I was never banking on the Yanks pitching to tell you the truth, but having what could have been another Jorge (granted he had his ups and downs) or better, would have been nice.

Regarding Texas, I agree with you, they will be tough to beat. But also, don't count out the Angels just because they had a slow start. With a whole bunch of veterans on their team, I think they will get back in it, and win when it counts.

I think Jorge had more going on defensively than Montero ever will...But a moot point now!

Agree about the Angels too ... For some reason AL east fans just haven't given the Rangers props they deserve... At least on the NY area sports talk shows

Thumbs down Mariano

well not much more to say... between Hughes imploding leaving
a huge hole and now Mariano down for a long long time, if not
for good... as Michael Kaye would say "SEEEE YA"

If I told you 6 weeks ago that on the morn of May 9 that the O's and Nats would be division leaders, you would have told me I was nuts....if I told you that also on that day, the Mets would have a better record than the Yanks, you would have me committed....just saying.
