Gonzo To Braves!
I guess the Braves finally gave up on Escobar who they just traded for Alex Gonzalez. Would be interested if Gonzalez comes back to GAAP to haunt the Reds. He is down to .259 but we shall see. ... 14 Jul 2010 20:58
Since we are at the half way point, maybe a little more. Here is a second chance to amend your predictions on the 2010 Reds. I stand by my 85 or did I say 86 wins, can't remember?

But you know my feeling on young pitchers, I always say let them leave on a positive note. It didn't happen , a few hits and a home run later the R... 10 Jul 2010 11:41
I guess the team will have to test itself big time in the next two games --- let's hope they don't need the pen.... ... 11 Jul 2010 18:17
Gotta love Leake

Yankees , Lee and the integrity of the game
HTP wrote: *snip* As a yankee fan, i'm leaning towards "opposed" to the trade, because I think they can easily make the postseason without acquiring lee, and because i realize that Sabathia/Pettite/Hughes would likely start almost all of the postseason games anyway (Vasquez wont even pitch in the po... 10 Jul 2010 16:05
