  1. An owner who thinks he knows more than the baseball minds. We continue to see the results.
  2. Might as well go for the Trifecta and re-sign Ubaldo too.
  3. I think they need to bring Kim back. Everything went south especially the mood in the clubhouse when he was dealt.
  4. This thread is a legend unto itself. I too miss el Bronco!
  5. BB PICKS: TOR NYM WAS ATL TB CWS KC STL MIL TEX OAK ARI LAA COL O's Thanks, Rob, I really appreciate all the time you devote to helping make the season more fun, even though my picks stunk this year. We'll get em next year, just like the O's.

  8. wow. bloodbath. i need to start picking the inverse of who i think will win. 2-13 just may set a record in futility.

  10. OK, this is the week where Bird Brane makes up a 15-game deficit and leapfrogs from last place to first. Here goes: SATURDAY PICKS: PBG BOS MIN TB NYM WAS KC CIN COL STL HOU ARI O's LAD SEA SUNDAY PICKS: PBG COL CLE MIN WAS NYM KC CIN STL HOU O's LAA ARI LAD BOS
  11. Maybe it's nit-picky, but I wish once in a while he'd use another term besides "punchouts" just for variety's sake. Same way Manfra used to ALWAYS say "makes the grab." The best announcers don't need cliches and formulas for their commentary - it just comes naturally.
  12. Bordick would be OK on radio where you're not watching the game, but as a television commentator I don't want to hear him tell me what I just saw with my own eyes. I want to hear someone with interesting things to say, and stories to tell - Ross Grimsley and Ben McDonald come to mind. I also thought Brian Roberts did a nice job the couple times he filled in.
  13. MIL NYY CIN ATL PBG DET BOS TEX HOU KC CHC COL OAK ARI NYM Good luck everyone!
  14. Just wow. Joe trying to push "alternative facts" on us. Who would have figured from a NYY fan?
  15. Just got back in town last night after time at the beach and then road tripping to Colorado to spend time with my son's family, 4 grandkids and a pooch, only to discover that I had the best record last week - I think my first time EVER in this fine competition. Only puts me 12 games behind in my division, so there's still hope! Shame on Joe Cool. He probably DID learn that behavior from a certain disgraced and well-traveled country DJ. Good riddance, sir.
