Did Pedro make a deal with Beltran that Carlos only homers in Pedro's starts?
Thats an odd stat this deep into the season.
How about GenR...they can't even play .300 baseball till the sad sack Cardinals come to town and suddenly they're a .500 club when the see Larussa and co. in the visitor's dugout.

i believe that was tied into the signing bonus...


and now a question for the red sox fans... was pedro always this happy? i know he's always been wacky, and has been known to be a clown in the dugout and clubhouse when he isn't pitching... but i don't ever remember him being so animated and jovial durring games where he's actually pitching. he really seems to be enjoying himself out there.

maybe it was just seeing him against the yankees too often... where he takes on a different demanor. that's been the most surprising thing about pedro... not that he's pitched great... that's not very surprising... that he's been such a happy go lucky guy.

Pedro might be a candidate for NL Cy Young, but the D Train in Fla is pitching pretty darn well too. His ERA (1.85) is a lot lower than Pedro's (2.62) and also sports a 9-2 record. Granted, the Mets bullpen blew a couple for Pedro.......

When things go well, Pedro is the happiest guy in MLB...always clowning, smiling , getting taped to the dugout columns, whatever.
Its only when he's in a slump or hurt that the negative stuff comes out. While he's pitching well, you'll thoroughly enjoy having him as a Met. If he starts to break down in anyway, it might be a different story.
I always enjoyed having Pedro here, even some of his pissed off comments to the media, like "Wake up the Bambino, I'll drill him in the ass", he's not just the best pitcher of the last decade or so, but a very colorful and entertaining personality.

If the Yanks can play the next 105 games in KC, the O's will be quite happy.

For once there might be a race in the AL East that consists of more than two teams.

You're assuming the Blue Jays will be able to hang in with the Orioles and Red Sox.

O's versus Tigers in Detroit tomorrow.

Have we had any conversation on Coco Crisp yet?

I love how he makes my milk so chocolately after the cereal is all gone!

Well the Cardinals do play well in April, May, June and July.
Its August, September and especially October that they have issues with.

1 world series win and the red sox fans get all cocky

do we really want to compare October success' between the Cardinals and Red Sox over the past 100 years?

The Cardinals have the second most World Championships, only behind the Yankess, while the Red Sox win one about every 86 years.

hey... 1 out of ever 86 is a .012 winning percentage. if that doesn't spell post-season success, i don't know what does.

Sure.

Cardinals postseason winning percentage: 51.9%
Red Sox postseason winning percentage: 51.6%

So another meeting this October and we'll pass you...
