Plus he'd look positively svelte if they put his locker next to Chunky Chunky's.

i'd also like to add now that the shock and awe of the lee signing has died down a bit that, while they probably have the best rotation in baseball today, i'd still take the 90's braves rotation over this one.

You know, I seem to remember a certain team from Flushing, NY had a pretty darn good rotation in 1986. Granted, none of them won 20 games, but none of them lost more than 7 games and that was the fifth starter.

Gooden- 17-6
Darling- 15-6
Ojeda- 18-5
Fernandez- 16-6
Aguilera- 10-7


Even Roger McDowell was 14-9 coming out of the pen and he had 22 Saves too.

He may have caught a glimpse of us when I poured that beer on his head.

Apparently the Yankees are looking at making a move for Zambrano.

Bringing Big Z's batshit antics to an even bigger stage? Sounds like a great idea!

I hope they go for it too. I'm tired of his bullshit.


RE: Cliff Lee, was there ever really a chance he was going to stay with the Rangers? Because I'm kind of amazed by how many of my Texas friends were crushed by his leaving.

Word is that they gave Texas the opportunity to guarantee a 7th year and would have signed, but they wouldn't and he then signed for 5 plus an option in Philly, so I dunno where the logic there is...maybe he liked Texas enough to stay if he was guaranteed the extra year, and if not figured he'd go back to Philly cause he just can't get enough of Geno's.

Shrewd move by Chuck and Nolan balking at a seventh year, if you ask me. Either way, I've got no hard feelings. If next year's interleague series wasn't in Philly, you could expect a big ovation for the guy at the Ballpark.

Now to make a pitch (punny!) for Greinke or Josh Johnson.

This whole thing has been a bit embarrassing personally because I was vehement that Lee would never be in a Phillies uniform again. I didn't think Lee would accept the terms of backloading the contract to make the books work, but hey, the money's guaranteed.

RIP Bob Feller...I'm sure NSW (aka MIA) is crushed by his passing.
