P and C reported, Spring Training is underway!!!!!!!!!!!

I was just looking up the Tiger's Rotation, we signed Brad Penny...I hope he is a Kenny Rogers and not a Dontrelle Willis... [edit: it was a Willis....Doug Fister was our Kenny Rogers]

But, the average age of our starting rotation is 26...how crazy is that...

I have 1st pick this year. I dont know why but I'm having a really hard time deciding between:

Miguel
Albert
Cano
Prince
Bautista

I have them currently ranked in that order nod

Miguel BY FAR.

I haven't looked up most leagues...but Miggy most likely will still be eligible at 1st and 3rd...while Pujols is going to be a 1B only. In any case he is going to have lights out 3B numbers...think of a power 3B but with actual, natural talent.

And, as much as it sickens me to say, vomit, I'd even trade down for Cano over Albert just because the talent at 1B around the league is so high.

Miggy, no question.

I think Hanley is going to be a forgotten gem this year. Eligible at SS and 3B makes him one hell of a pick.

I dont know why but I have a feeling Hanley isn't going to have a good year.

Also in my other league it's a keeper league currently I have these guys:

Puljos
Wright
Richie Weeks
C.C.
Pineda

J.Montero is my last one but I also have R. Howard. Anyone think I should be keeping Howard instead. He's probably not projected to play until July I think or maybe even further down the road.

I'm from Philly and there's whispers that he'll be out the entire year, so I would stay away from him unless you get him dirt cheap (if you're in an auction league). Otherwise, I wouldn't touch him until late in your draft.

I'm in an auction/keeper league and we draft next weekend. Keeping Bautista and Kershaw for a total of about $60 (cap of $260). Just hoping Bautista doesn't get caught roiding.. besides that, i like my foundation.

Tough.. I mean, Howard won't be back until after the Break.. so I'd probably have to go Montero.

Yea I had a feeling that was going to happen. I'm also going to keep Valverde over Wright as well. Trying to decide if Pineda is worth keeping. It's an 18 team league so there will be slim pickings.

This is what I'm working with: Bold is keeping for now. I might keep Kendrick over Pineda now that I'm thinking about it. 2B will be hard to come by.

I'm gonna go ahead and blame this on the City of New York for obvious reasons.

Young arrested, could face hate-crime charge
Tigers outfielder involved in confrontation at New York hotel


Drunk outside the hotel...but he was not in the starting lineup...but I still don't understand how he is out at 2:30 in the morning, drunk, when he has to go to work in the morning. Seriously, you have to work for 10 years to be set for life....

Updated.

Yea, I do feel sorry for him...working batting practice is something I like to see as a fan, gets some stars out while you are just killing some time, and now that someone hurt themselves pretty major while doing it I can just picture a ton of stars being all whinny and never doing it anymore.

mo does it every game
he also always has fun with the people in center field when he's shagging these balls
he signs autographs during this time period too.

he naps or chills in the dugout/clubhouse until about the 6th inning.
then after the 6th he makes his way to the bullpen normally.

Went to the Field of Dreams game this weekend. Got to see Frank Thomas hit a pair of HRs, Ozzie Smith turn a double play, Rickey Henderson steal 2nd and Reggie Jackson get out a bunch of times, haha. It was really a great experience, getting to see soooo many of those big name players, even if they were WAY past their prime, they can still play.

Here was the roster, but Dave Winfield was there, and Rod Carew said when he retired he refused to put on the jersey again, so Edgar played 2nd instead of DH. Johnny Bench is pretty freaking funny.

Quote :
The Pepsi MAX Field of Dreams Team is comprised of:
Catcher - Johnny Bench;
First Baseman - Frank Thomas;
Second Baseman - Rod Carew;
Third Baseman - Wade Boggs;
Shortstop - Ozzie Smith;
Outfielders - Reggie Jackson, Rickey Henderson, Jim Rice;
Pitcher - Pedro Martinez;
Relief Pitcher - Dennis Eckersley;
Designated Hitter - Edgar Martinez.
