He said in an interview the other day that he has a personal trainer-that just made me

I don't mean to be prejudiced against the guy because of his weight, I really couldn't care less. And maybe the rest is all muscle except for his lil belly

As long as he keeps winning I don't care if he gets up to 400 lbs

Yeah, well, it takes serious discipline to be able to drink enough beer to accumulate a midsection that large.

Nomaahhh's done for at least 2-3 months, groin muscle tear, pulled right off the bone. (Note to self, refrain from using "groin" and "bone" in the same sentence when referring to other men)

My guess is he's done for the season, and his career is way on the downside, don't think he's ever gonna be close again to the player he was in 1999 and 2000.
Should have taken the Sox' 4 yr $60Million offer in the 2003-2004 offseason, right now the Cubs are regretting shelling out $8Mil for 1 year, and my guess is Nomie may be lucky to get about $3mil next year if he can heal. Mia may have to unretire.

Ouch! That sucks. The Cubbies are my 2nd fave team, mainly because of Mark Prior (Go Trojans!) Anyways, looks like that holy water isn't working. At this point, I think I believe in the curse.

PS: Dodgers are now 12-2

Dodgers are not just winning, but they are finding every way possible to get it done. Penny, Gagne missing and still all this? Very exciting for SoCal baseball.

Too bad about Nomar, Cubs are really a tender, brittle team. Hope Prior stays healthy, pleasure watching him pitch.

Smoltz looked great today, he's still got electric stuff.

My Yankees depress me, I'm glad I love not just the Yanks, but the sport on the whole.

Quick question...

When you're 6-6 on the year with a walk, and you have socred only 1 run....and that came on a solo HR....does your team suck? I'm thinking maybe they do.

Or it could mean I'm really really slow. Damn.

now that's the al leiter i know and love...

walk cliff floyd... floyd steals second... david wright walks, give up a bloop bunt basehit to ramon castro load the bases and give up a grand slam to a lefty mientkiewicz...

followed up with another walk to diaz, a sac bunt by pedro, a bloop double for reyes to score another run... opposite field by matsui to make it first and third... sac fly by beltran brings reyes home and moves matsui to second, bringing... ta da... cliff floyd, who drives in matsui with a broken bat basehit to center... who proceeds to steal second base... again... and wright grounds out to end the inning.

ahhh yes... memories of al's days with the mets... 7 runs in an inning, 60 pitches through 2. ahhh yes.

Pedro is off to a good start this year with the Mets, but so far, I'd say the Red Sox starting rotation is holding up quite well...

Apparently Pedro's velocity is back in the mid 90's on a consisitent basis...he could end up as the steal of the free agency class of 2005 if it keeps up.
He's definitely already looking like the favorite for NLCS.

Meanwhile, the Orioles' lineup which had been pummeling pitchers from Randy Johnson to Cy Young, was just shutout back to back by David Wells and Matt Clement (each with an inning of bullpen help), so the Red Sox free agent pitching acquisitions don't look too shabby at this early juncture of the season.

Anyone in the fantasy league want to trade for Nomar??...anyone?....I'll take a water bottle and a rosin bag.

Pedro-who's that?

Every time I go to Modells, they still have 5 dollar Pedro t-shirts that they can't get rid of

oh and I'd like to add a quote I read from Pedro in an interview a couple of weeks ago, I think it was NY Post-whatever Pedro I wish him well, but come on

"I speak from my heart. I’m honest. I can’t be any other way. But yes, there were actually two things I’ve said that I’ve come to regret. The first, when I called the Yankees my daddy. I was feeling it that night so I said it, but I was saying it more for my team, than for me. I was feeling like I could not beat them because my team was not helping me."

Poor Pedro

as long as he can stay healthy, i do believe pedro will win the NL Cy Young this year... why? simple...

he's comming from fenway park, one of the best hitter's parks in all of baseball... where he had a career ERA of like 2.40... to shea stadium... one of the best pitcher's parks in all of baseball.

it's much easier to pitch in the NL than it is in the AL...

3/4s of the guys he'll be facing in the NL have never faced him and/or haven't faced him often and/or haven't faced him in 8+ years.

and to think... just last year he was mollesting collies
