Clemens has asked for $22 million in arbitration, the Astros countered with $13.5million...be interesting to see what happens if it goes that far.
I'm sure Rocket would eschew retirement if he won a $22mil arbitration award.

Dear Boston,

We have your Pedro, we have your midget, and now we have your ball.

Sincerly,

Omar Minaya

sure you will... just not on nights that pedro is pitching. when the nationals come to town and trachsel is pitching, you could probably get some tickets for free if you tried hard enough.

haha, true.

when the cardinals came last year, i wound up front row behind home plate...well, ok, not the front front row, but front row unless you had the corporate seats or whatever they have there. you know what im talking about, the new seats behind home kinda.

actually when mcgwire hit his 400th homer before those seats were there, i had front row literally behind home plate, so you could see me jumping up like a little shithead when he hit it out.

Headache and/or Numb1075...any info on Ian Bladergroen?
I heard on the radio he was the #4 rated prospect in the Mets organization.

Also heard he played this past year for single A "Capital City"
Is the Goofball still their mascot?

Hewson - He is a left-handed hitting first baseman/DH with big-time power potential from the left side. His plate discipline is only adequate (25 walks, 52 strikeouts in 261 at-bats), and there are some concerns about his ability to make contact and work the count effectively against more advanced pitching. He hit .285/.354/.416 last year in the New York-Penn League, so his '04 numbers represent significant improvement.


Bladergroen was a 44th round draft-and-follow guy, out of a junior college in Colorado, picked in 2002 but not signed until the spring of 2003. He's a big guy at 6-foot-5, 210 pounds, and at age 21 is neither young nor old for the Sally League. He doesn't have a great glove, but if he hits they will find a spot for him. We need to see how he holds up against pitchers who know what they are doing, but so far his career is off to a fine start.

Thanks for the info, hopefully he'll blossom.
Good luck with Mientkewicz, great glove, not so great bat, but with the rest of the Mets lineup you should be OK with him hitting around 7th.
