Hammer Ball

One month into the season and things are just beginning to take shape.
The Barry Bonds watch, hunt, chase, and escapade has cooled while Barry takes
a break and adjust to this new unprecedented level of pressure.
Mind and body go hand in hand.

Meanwhile,
the game moves on. Alex Rodriguez is swinging a hot a stick and is hovering
around the .300 mark. Somethings never change. Yankee fans are lucky to have
a front row seat of yet another future Hall Of Famer. Alex is the complete package.
Look for the Yankees to catch fire this month. Spring is slowly moving towards
summer and some players only get it going when it's warm baby!
I feel ya. The White Sox seem to have picked up where they left off.
It's to early to runaway with it but the swagger is right. Vazquez is looking
strong and was near flawless in his two hitter this week. The Sox have won
9 of their last 10 games.

Boston threatens an early season run for the stretch.
We all know, you wake up one morning It's July
and you wonder how did we get 10 games out?
RedSox fans are hungry for another shot at it. Believe me
once you taste victory you begin to crave it. It is an acquired
taste. King Crab anyone?

The A's an Angels hook up this weekend and the series will
produce the early season favorite for the AL West crown.
My bet is the A's will win the series and the AL West this
year. The A's pitching once again is the advantage. Look
for Zito to get in rhythm in May.

The Mets sure look impressive. This is going
to be a highly contested battle in the NL East.
While the Mets are marking their territory,
the Braves pitching is locking in. We have all the
classic makings of a great divisional rivalry. Former
teammates and the north versus the south.
Southern hospitality versus the big city slickers.
The Mets and Braves is baseball at it's summertime best.

The Cubs are in striking distance early on and should
give Houston all the fight they can stand this season.
Look for others to step up while Lee recovers. The Cubs
will be there fighting it out in September.

The Giants will win the NL West. While Barry is mending
and finding his groove the Giants still occupy the top spot.
I don't see the other clubs having the eye of the tiger
that it takes to whip veterans when it counts.
They don't won't it. So the Giants will gladly take it.

Question, when will the NL managers get the guts to pitch
to Barry Bonds? They say he's old and on the decline. Ok, then
pitch to the man!!

I hear you, but I bleed red and blue and I love my Cardinal and Phatt Albert too!! What about those Cards? Here is an irony. Unless I was dreaming, the year Show-N-Tell performed the opening day at Busch Stadium, The Cards played the Giants and I had the opportunity to meet Barry Bonds. He was cool.

I respect anyone who loves baseball. That's actually the only thing I respect about Dubya.

As a Red Sox fan, I ask you Hammer, why did Tito pull Foulke tonite?

I am still learning about baseball but I have to go with my home town team first - the Rays, then my next favorite is the Braves and the Yankees.
Have a nice day.

I think the AL East is going to come down to Boston's pitching against New York's lineup. The Red Sox have a flawed lineup. I like Crisp, Loretta, Ramirez and Ortiz at the top, but after that, I'm pretty unenamored with their offense. I also have concerns about the back end of their rotation, but their bullpen is solid, and Schilling and Beckett are as good a duo as any in the league. The Yankees, meanwhile, have a tough lineup top to bottom, but their bullpen is mediocre, and their rotation, while it has peformed fairly well to this point, is fairly weak after the Big Unit. I would hate to have to rely on Mussina, Wang or Chacon to win a game I had to win.

All that said, I'm an Orioles fan, and I'm hoping they shock the world. But I'm also realistic. Go O's! (Speaking of which, the Devil Rays will not finish ahead of the O's this year. I can't believe Tampa Bay became such a chic pick. Their pitching situation is much, much worse than Baltimore's.)

The Braves need to get Chipper and Renteria healthy. The pitching will come around.

They are going to have to find a regular spot for Betemit sooner rather than later.

The Rev said...

I am a humble Phillies fan, and I would just like to see them do well.

Believe me... it's taking all I can muster to not start ranting and raving about my team right now. I envy all of you who root for good franchises.
