It’s About Playing Catch & Throwing Strikes
[Hosted by: Slapweasel]



It is that time of year, boys and girls. We get to joke about pitchers and catchers reporting.

Here's the big secret nowadays; they have been in camp for a-couple-a weeks, as have most players that aren't under either the influence of drugs and alcohol or contract disputes that haven't been settled in arbitration. There is one other type of player that hasn't reported yet... the Free Agents. Thus begins our biggest story of this off-season.

Guys to Watch in Spring Training.

Many excellent Free Agents haven't yet signed with Big League clubs, as this is becoming a trend. For the past three seasons big names increasingly go unsigned under the current Collective Bargaining Agreement between Players and Owners. Medium-Sized Names are also left to twist in the wind because Owners have the leverage as the days advance. The names include many of these guys.

...This may lead to another 1994 Nightmare if they aren't careful. Lest they want the "Millionaires versus Billionaires" sentiment to resume, they'd both better eat their egos quickly or suffer the consequences of the N.F.L. Fans love winners, but they suffer fools marginally; if at all. Nice Super Bowl, Bitches.

As I've witnessed in the Off-Season, the New York Yankees, Chicago Cubs and Milwaukee Brewers have made the biggest strides toward capturing Post-Season Glory. The signing of Giancarlo "Don't Call me Mike" Stanton has been the biggest move. Judge and Stanton back-to-back brings back the Maris and Mantle thoughts of yore. ...Damn Yankees. *shakes fist*

The Houston Astros are still strong in the A.L. Central and every idiot on the block picks Last Year's Teams to repeat. They rarelydo. So-Called "sleeper" picks of mine for the Post-Season would include the Minnesota Twins, Seattle Mariners and New York Mets*.


The Boston Red Sox have a quality club, as do the Toronto Blue Jays. Tough in the A.L. East again, but I think the Yankees have enough emerging stars to take that to the bank. (Not a betting man. I spend Thirty-Five dollars per year "gambling".)

Yes, I know of the San Francisco Giants' moves. *meh* I also know that the Chicago White Sox may be a juggernaut in training. If the White Sox thing comes to fruition? Whoooo-Boy. That thing may be a Beast in three years.

Last Year's Standings

-Where does J.D. Martinez sign?
-Can Arizona reproduce what it did last year with a rejuvenated Zach Grienke and an excellent pitching staff?
-Do the Dodgers just Dominate until the last month of the Season?

...Many Free Agents and an Entire Season can be yours if the Price is Right!
