Cole Hammels, MVP 1-0 record    :rofl_2:  that's so lame
Who else could they give it too.
God, its cold outside, I had to come home early. They are tearing up Broad Street.
I lost the will to live mid way through the first set!

Self-praise is for losers. Be a winner. Stand for something. Always have class, and be humble.

If the team from the western part of PA doesn't win it, then I don't care who does (other than maybe the Tribe).

Reports say that Sabathia is now a NY Yankee. The deal... $160 million dollars over 7 years. $22 million per year.
So (this from Mike and Mike) at the same time the US econmoy is going in the tank, and people are losing jobs all over the place, and both the Yankees and Mets are asking the city of New York (which by the way is on the verge of bankrupcy) for help with their new stadiums (so they can have all their luxury boxes), the Mets give K-rod $37 million for 3 years and the Yankees give Sabathia the richest contract any pitcher has ever gotten.

Crazy....Sabathia, in my opinion, is not even a great pitcher.  He's very good, but not great.  If you combine that with the fact that he is always overweight, this is not such a great deal for the Yankees.  Sabathia just came along at the right time because there are no top pitchers available this year. 

For him, there is a major bonus here - NY has a hot dog stand on every corner!

That's a bonus???
Sabathia had a great year with Milwaulkee. It was the stuff of legend. But he has an average record in the playoffs, and yes, his weight will become a problem as the years pile up. I think the last three or four years of that contract may be a nightmare for him if he doesn't do something about it.
Firstly, stay away from those hot dog stands. :nono:

I think CC is a great pitcher.....until playoff time at least.

Jamesd, Kerry Wood will likely sign with the Indians.

*Kerry is my all-time favorite Cub--top of a list of 1. Until now, the Cubs have held out hope for Kerry and he had remained loyal, opting to resign for less and accept a reduced role as a closer. Understandably, looks like the Cubs patience finally ran dry.

**Kerry's 1 dribbler infield hit, 0 (zero) balls reaching the outfiled, facing 1 over the minimum batters, and record 20 K/0 BB v Houston's "Killer Bs" ranks as MLB #1 pitched game of all-time. :thumbs-up:
