I predict that once again the Tribe will not win the World Seriess.

As a RedSox and Tito fan at least you have one of the best coaches in baseball.

Unfortunately, because of the flash of the players of the 90's and the fact that numbers are inflated more and more ever year, solid players wind up getting overlooked for the players that put on a show (See Craig Biggio and how long he had to wait to get voted in)
Griffey definitely. Unfortunately with Piazza it's not the Hall of Solid, it's the Hall of Fame. I'm personally not a fan of his induction.

I couldn't disagree with you more, Pete.
If you want to argue it was the steroid era, or if you want to say he needed to wait longer; fine, but you can't call Mike just a solid player. Mike was great.
Was he the best catcher to ever play the game? No, but he was one, if not the best, hitting catcher of all time.
No small feat when you consider how that position has been chewing up and spitting out talent throughout history.
Lord knows I'm not a Met fan, and I'm not a Piazza fan either, but he does belong in the hall.

Tom, We on for the what seems to be an annual bet this season? A's play in Detroit for a 4 game series in late April. Then a 3 game series in Oakland late May.

You want to do 2 bet on each series or 1 bet for the combined series?

How about 1 bet, since one series is an even number of games, and because I don't wanna lose twice.

I agree and God knows I can't stand the Mets either, or the decision to leave Buckner in a game late that he had no business being in. That being said the only knock I have against Piazza is his b.s. when being questioned about steroids, it's often better to say nothing rather than lie and eventually get caught and have to own up anyway.

Done deal, send me your address as soon as the A's win the 4th game. Quite possibly in late April.

Well it's begun. Definitely my favorite time of the year. I think the Twins have a pretty good shot at getting to the playoffs this year. Should be a really fun year!

Yankees/Astros postponed due to weather. Why didn't MLB schedule this game in Texas? Opening Day in The Bronx makes as much sense as spring training in Canada.

Another year for great baseball weather at Coors Field. As for great baseball from the Rockies, I'm not going to hold my breath.

Twins blew it in the ninth. The bullpen is going to be a question mark again this year.
