Saw the Phils last night at Citizens Bank Park - big win, we all wanted to see Rowand and Utley take on the Nats in a brawl, but Howard got a homer so it was alright.

Not quite, this MAY be able to be solved by simple medication, however surgery may be required....we will see on wednesday or thursday,.

If surgery is needed I agree we are in trouble.

Pedro will be back in time for October, until then we coast.

Although both bannister and perez have been lights out lately in AAA.

Can Pedro really be counted on to be the Pedro of old given his recent performances?

When hes been healthy hes been great, when hes been hurting and not on his rested sched hes been less than ideal. Come October I think any team would want him pitching for them.

I officially declare the AL East race over.
I officially declare the start of football season.

And The Mets are gonna coast to the NL East title and get swept in the division series if Glavine is done (cause Pedro is done too, trust me, he'll make a start in Sept and the labrum will flare up and its the last you'll see of him)

I officially declare that you are correct.

It's sad when the sports highlight of the weekend in New England was the Patriots preseason game.

Give the Yanks credit, they got through their injuries and made a couple of impact pick-ups at the trade deadline.
The Sox decided that the rotation which featured the likes of Jason Johnson and Jon "not ready for prime time" Lester was enough to win the division. And that the likes of Craig "way back" Hanson and his 6.60 ERA was an untradeable commodity, not wanting to give him up for the likes of a Greg Maddux.

The Sox front office shoulders the majority of responsibility for the dismal 2nd half. If they couldn't tell what was going on between the All Star break and July 31 and act on improving the pitching, they are blind. Otherwise it seems they basically threw in the towel on this season (while in the division lead no less) thinking the young pitchers they have far too valuable, though we are beginning to see otherwise.

That said, the Yanks are in trouble in the post season, their pitching staff is not exactly championship caliber, the Tigers, Twins, A's and White Sox can all outpitch the Yanks in October. The Yanks' bats will make things interesting, but in the end pitching wins, and the Yanks don't have enough of it.

I think the White Sox are looking good for a repeat now. If Liriano wasn't hurt, I'd lean towards the Twins, because there isn't a better 1-2 punch in the league with him and Santana. The Tigers have excellent pitching, but are very young, and one wonders how well they'd do in a playoff setting. The A's don't have enough offense to go with their pitching, and of course, the Yankees don't have the pitching.

The White Sox are the most well-rounded team right now.

And I think David Ortiz's MVP chances took a hit this weekend.
