This post just ensured the Padres the NL wildcard. Bank on it.

Nothing I can say can heal Milton Bradley's knee.

Big Grin Hewson and Phanam do not fit into that category in my book

CTU2fan has nailed it here... (twice)

If you read...a POTENTIAL purchaser of the Cubs has had a talk with Boras. In reality...it could hurt the the purchase of the team, but it is not tampering.

AND....

I would say..."some of them ALL of the time" as to not generalize! We have some nice Red Sox fans here!

All this talk of A-Rod going to the Cubs amuses me, as if this season is already a foregone concluson. They might not even NEED him to win a World Series, the way they're playing right now.

Personally, I don't want it to happen. I think A-Rod is a bitch (I'm still not over that "slapping" play against the Red Sox in the ALCS 3 years ago), and as a life-long Cubs fan I don't want to be rooting for a team with him on it.

Also, we have yet to see him deliver in October, so how would that help the Cubs anyway? So he can contribute to another epic meltdown?

Going to the Wednesday night Phillies-Braves game. Look out for PF26 behind the dugout.

as far as a-rod goes, let's not forget about the Giants as a potential suiter... they will have a rather large hole to fill.. i'd bet they go hard after a-rizzle

and then there's willie randolph, who apparently will just continue to throw guillermo mota out there in key situations because he enjoys making things harder on himself and the team. but hey... gotta go with my guys.

i'm likely going tonight... if willie makes that walk out of the dugout and makes the signal for the rightie while mota's warming up, don't be shocked if you see someone running out of the stands to tackle him.

Interested in your opinion on this:

Should Joba go back to being a starter next season?

I was back home in NYC this weekend, and my Dad and I were debating this.

I think that, yes, he should go back. He seems like he has the potential to be a special pitcher, and to me, the Yanks would be better served with him in the rotation. He's got 3 great pitches, but only uses 2 as a reliever (we hardly see his curve, just that sharp slider).

Maybe it depends on whether Pettitte returns next season (which I hope he does).

Anyway, thoughts? Or, who gives a shit but me?

Rivera is almost at the end of his career, and Joba looks to be a dominant closer.

Kind of funny, because the Sox had the same thing with Papelbon. Was thought to be a starter, but has ended up the closer, and it's obvious it was the right choice.

I think the Yanks should do the same with Joba.

Joba should go back to being a starter. The Yankees know full well you can never have enough starting pitching.

The general consensus is that you need three plus-pitches, and preferably four, to be a top starter. I guess it depends on how good his curve, changeup, etc. are.

He's got 3 good ones. 95+mph fastball that he spots fairly well. Very tight slider that he throws hard, and a nice, slow 12-6 curveball.

I thought that keeping Papelbon in the pen was a mistake, but, they had no viable alternatives.

Rivera might not be at the top of his game, but he's not exactly out of gas yet either. But, Joba could be an amazing heir apparent, and in the meantime, a fantastic bridge.

I see both sides of the argument.
