I have always liked Faith better than Pornography. One Hundred Years and Strange Day are great but Faith better functions as an album.

Really? I don't think so. Seattle's got a better starting rotation than Boston, and a better closer. Seattle's bullpen is younger, but proven. Boston has better hitting--but not by much.

In all honesty, I see any of the other three teams I mentioned stopping them dead. Especially Detroit, though. Their entire team is 100% top class this year.

I've only got 4 of their albums. They're kind of a low priority (the rest) at the moment.

What happened in the 2001 playoffs, I forget.

That's okay because we've handed NY their asses in the playoffs before, too.

Red Sox pitching allowed 657 runs last season.

Mariners pitching allowed 813 runs, which was more than the 794 runs you scored. Hence your September collapse.

If you really think adding Bedard takes you from being a non-playoff team to being better than the defending WS champs, I just think you're a little overly enthusiastic about your team. Not quite objective.

Putz is great, though.

1995, true.

Mariners also added Silva. And Felix is healthy. And we don't have the two choke artists who both had ERA's above 6 (Weaver and Ramirez) in the rotation. Huge differences man. Huge.

5 or so of the ST instructors for the Mariners were on that '95 team. Oh, and we've got Stottlemeyer as our pitching coach, who usually can turn shit into gold. So take Seattle's already bronze pitching? Yeah, he turns it into diamond.

Silva, don't get too worked up over him. The King, though, good point.

I think you'll battle Anaheim for the division, as long as the King and Bedard stay healthy. And anything can happen in a 7-game Series, but, to me, the Red Sox are still the best team in Baseball. Less pressure on Dice-K, Jacoby all year, Lester and Bucholz, etc....

That's the fun of spring training, though....battles for jobs, verbal battles over who is better than who, etc.

Silva, I believe, had more innings last year than Ramirez and Weaver combined. That alone will help out the bullpen (which is the only reason we collapsed--the bullpen was flat out tired because of the reality of a 3-man rotation).
