The Blue Jays are the team to watch this year in the East. The Sox and Yanks can kiss any hopes of a division title this year goodbye. Can't wait to go see the boys of summer down at the Rogers Centre this summer.

I love the Angels, and they are doing great in preseason, but I don't have my hopes up for them winning the world series or anything. Maybe they'll get to postseason.

 

Just to address the Matthews issue. I think he's guilty. It sucks. The Angels blew $50 mil. on a player who will probably be out for half (maybe more of) the season.

Yeah, we can only hope he's not guilty, but from the looks of things, it seems as if he is....

 

Shame really that the Angels are going to blow all that money on him.

Boston has a great pitching rotation this year. Especially with the pick up of the two Japanese pitchers.

 

Go Redsox!

The more I hear about the Astros the more optimistic things look for them. Woody Williams has to stay healthy and deliver a good season, and out of Fernando Nieve, Wandy Rodriguez, Albers and so forth have to put together a consistent pitching rotation. Then the other need is either the regular season '05 Brad Lidge or another capable closer.

 

Carlos Lee should own at Minute Maid Park, and sooner or later we could see Hunter Pence. There will be more run production than the last two seasons, unless Morgan Ensberg falls apart again or injuries to other starters occur.

God the rotation scares the CRAP out of me right now. Oswalt is set of course but to me Jennings is still a little bit of a question mark, Woody is old (and I think his numbers from the past two seasons can be partially attributed to pitching at Petco), Wandy has never really been consistent (or good for that matter), and the other two guys are inexperienced. I would like to see Nieve and Albers get their chances though.

 

And with Lidge getting lit up every time he goes out even this late in spring training I don't know what to expect from him either. However, I do like how the offense looks. It might take me a while to get used to the Astros winning with their bats rather than their starting pitching, as they have for much of the past two seasons.

Look for the Brewers to be a strong contender to take the NL Central.

Watching the Cardinals lose never gets old.

 

Go 'Stros. icon14.gif

 

My expectations are not high, but I think they'll be in the mix for the wildcard.

 

Milwaukee still has to prove it can win consistently over the course of the whole season. The Brewers have had a couple good starts here and there, only to fall apart. The division is wide open and not very good (St. Louis has some serious issues if Carpenter keeps pitching like he did tonight) so anything can happen.

Ouch, the Cards got whooped up on pretty bad last night... Bad start of the new season for the champs. Tonight we get to see the rest of the league open it up. And oh man I can't wait to see Schilling and the boys tear up KC!!!

Go Sox!!

Completly agree. The Brewers looked amazing today. And the Cubs who were supposed to be great didnt look to good. haha

 

 

I dont know how the Astros did but I am really nervous about Carlos Lee with that short porch in left field.

 

 

 

Go Brew Crew!

Lee might get 50 HR this year just because he plays half of his games at minute maid. It's almost unfair!

 

Great day to be a Brewer fan though

I just have to say. I love Vladimir Guerrero. In the past three seasons Vladdy has RBIs on the first swing of the first at bat of the season. The same love goes to John Lackey. Yeah, he walked 3 in the first, but he K'ed 3 in the second.

 

And it's also cool to see (a personal hometown hero of mine, growing up in the same place as him, and then him being the pitcher that was on the mound when the angels won the world series) Troy Percival throwing the first pitch. He f*cking rocketed it too.

The Astros bullpen sucks.

 

Those four words explain, concisely, why the Astros will not win the NL Central.

You know you can make a decent argument for any of the six teams to win the NL Central. And that includes the longshot Pirates (promising young rotation, power duo of Bay-LaRoche). Not that I'm expecting them to finish above 5th or 6th, but it just goes to show how weak the division is.

 

And yes, the Astros BP does suck. Now Qualls, I see him as slightly better than average but he's never been perfect anyway so he's bound to have bad games like last night's every once in a while. But when your closer hasn't been reliable at all for any of last season or this year's spring training, then keeping him that role with the idea that he'll spontaneously work his problems out over the course of the season just doesn't make sense to me. If he's not traded he should be relegated to middle relief. Bring on Wheeler the Dealer already.

The astro spent way too much money on el caballo (carlos lee). They should have spent all that money looking for a good relief pitcher for the 6-8 innings and someone to fill in for clemens and pettite, instead they took Lee's almost guarenteed 40-50 homeruns over a good pitching staff. I think the race will come down to the brewers and cardinals just because of their pitching.

I think the race will come down to the brewers and cardinals just because of their pitching.

I wouldn't say that they should have spent that money on the BP, because outside of Lidge they actually had a reasonably solid relief corps (based on last season, that is). And with the ridiculous contracts mediocre starting pitchers were signing this past offseason (cough Ted Lilly, Jason Marquis, and Gil Meche among others) it would've been hard to find decent replacements for both Clemens and Pettitte through free agency.

 

However, as much as I think we needed Carlos Lee and as much as I like seeing him in an Astros uniform (never mind that he didn't do anything in his first game) I do agree that we spent too much on him. And with the length of his contract signing him was more of a short-term solution because you kind of wonder how he's going to do later on when he's nearing or at the twilight of his career.

 

 

Don't discount the Reds just yet either, especially after they started to turn things around last year. Aaron Harang looked good yesterday and if Arroyo can repeat last year they'd have a good one-two punch. Okay, after that they don't really have anyone scary in the rotation, but then again no one else in the division does other than maybe Milwaukee. (I just now realized that Jeff Suppan was on the Brewers. Don't know how I forgot about that)

I am starting to wonder if it is in fact the year for the Pirates to fly under the radar and win the division after all.

 

The Astro bullpen has already given them a head start, after all. sad.gif

I don't think Carlos Lee is worth near as much he wanted. All he can do is hit. I is an average outfielder AT BEST. I think it's easy to say the NL Central is the best division in baseball this year.

I always think it's pretty amusing that the only team's fans that are as obsessed with the Cubs as Cubs fans are, are White Sox fans.

 

The only reason true Cubs fans hated the Sox winning the World Series, is that we knew we'd never hear the end of it from Sox fans....otherwise we were happy for the team. Unfortunately it doesn't work the other way around. Haven't you guys realized how pathetic it looks to compare your team's every move, or every accomplishment to the Cubs? In 2003 you never heard one Cubs fan on TV say anything about the Sox...Lo and Behold, he Sox get to the World Series, and there's at least one Sox fan babbling about how the Sox got to the World Series before the Cubs did. Regardless of how redundant that was (the Sox "beat" the Cubs to the World Series all the way back in '59) It was just really sad, that in the moment of your team's greatest triumph, that those fans had to drag in another team into the picture. If you guys want to have your own identity stop being so concerned about what the Cubs are doing except when we play you guys.

 

Best example is that the Astros fan hates the Cardinals....BoSox fans hate the Yankees, and Cardinal fans hate both the Astros and the Cubs. Notice the trend here? all of these teams are within their own divisions. Try keeping your hatred towards the Indians, Tigers, or even the Twins...because those are the teams that are going to prevent you from getting to the playoffs, not the Cubs.
