Default MLB (Major League Baseball)

Anybody like baseball here? Baseball is not one of my favourite sports but I follow it! Me be because there is no NHL this year. Anyways Interleague games are going on now. Very Exciting!

Did you know that Boston Red Sox offered Adam Gilchrist of Aus, a tryout to see if he can bat as a baseball player?

I have read it at the following source: (The story is kind of old so you have to buy to get the whole reports but there is sneak preview)

Yea, Rangers always had huge batting lineup but their pitching sucked for last few years. But they seem to be doing well this year.

Yup Rangers are doing better with out A-Rod who is destroying hte AL with all his HR. Jays are 3rd i think after Orioles and Red Sox. We are ahead of the Yankees though.

Default Major League Baseball : 2006 Season

Well, the Midsummer Classic is here, within a week, and I think its a decent time to start making predictions about who will make it into the postseason, how the teams are doing at the midway mark, your favourite teams. In essence, make this thread a place to talk baseball.

I will start off with some random thoughts on next Sunday's All-star game :

The roster's been announced yesterday... which pitcher would you like to start the game for AL and NL ? My choice : Roy Halladay for AL, Dontrelle Willis, obviously, for the NL.

I believe the AL east is withing anyones range. The only exception is Tampa Bay. You cna't just say Yankees and Red Sox, as both are getting beat by Baltimore and Toronto.... It all depends on who gets a winning streak and when....

As for the others I agree with you...

Yes, AL East will interesting to watch as 4 out of 5 teams are over .500 and they all are 5 or less games behind first place.
Hoping that Jay's bat comes alive somethimes soon, as well as Koskie. Toronto has a good chance in next couple of weeks to make a big move becase they are playing most of lower ranked teams and Boston, New York Yankees, Baltimore will be playing against each other mostly, in this month.

The Jays bats ARE alive, and trust me, Koskie's absence hasnt been felt at all. I hope you have kept track of the Jays games recently, since something is missing from your knowledge range.

If the RedSox, the Yankees and Baltimore play against each other mostly, why wont the Jays do the same being in the same division. I would like to point out that the Jays and the other teams in AL Ease face each other 19 times in the season, and the Jays have more than 50% of those divisional games still left. The way MLB schedule works, its this heavy flow of divisional games by the end of the regular season is what plays the most crucial role in determining who will reach the playoff from each division.

Its good we are facing Yankees, Red Sox and Orioles. Jays play horrible against lower ranked teams yet we can beat the higher ranked ones.

1st- I have kept track of the Jays all season long.
2nd- Wells hitting .261 (capable of batting in the .300s)
Hinske .241 Hudson .253
Non have more more than 40 RBIs, forget about the home runs and batting average with runners-in-scoring-position. I admit though they have scored lot of runs lately (aginst the Yankees and Tampa but it is not consistence).
3rd- I said jays have a good chance of making big move because they are playing lower ranked teams for next few week. But NY Yankees, Baltimore and Boston who are in the same division as Jays, are playing mosty against each other in this MONTH. So what ever the outcomes are between those series, Jays will win as far as the standing goes.
By they way Jays have been doing very well against their division teams, so you don;t have worry about who will do good when the season comes near ending.

thats more like a Jays fan!

the thing about wells, he's had a very slow start, but has come along nicely, and the guy has hit .350+ in June! What else you want from him. He's not being very productive, true...but he leads the jays in major hitting categories.

And would you not like to have around 10 guys having RBIs in the 30s by mid-July, or would you prefer a couple players nearing 70-80 RBIs and the rest are around 20 ?

Wells started the season badly and thats why his statistics are down. Once he gets rolling Jays should be winning more.
