  1. The center of Milwaukee and the center of Chicago are only 90 miles apart. And the Cubs have a ton of fans in the northern suburbs, as well as southern Wisconsin and even Milwakee, so it was a bunch of Cub fans there. For a lot of Cub fans, driving to Milwaukee is the eqivlent of driving from Miami to Palm Beach, so it's not all that far, especially considering it's a rare chance for a lot of them to see the Cubs in person since Wrigley is sold out everyday. Back on topic, even as a Sox fan and Cub hater, I don't mind Zambrano and issue congrats to him on his no hitter.
  2. He'll be a good one if he can keep his mechanics in order on a consistent basis. The White Sox may regret that trade one day in the near future, and if that day comes, it'll be because Gio is very good.
  3. Admittely, I'm not an expert on DD's days in Miami, but I would have to go with Beinfest here. He consistently keeps you guys in contention with almost no payroll, helped shape up key parts of the 2003 team, and avoids the dark ages that you had at times under DD. Dave is a guy that can't compete without payroll backing him up, and the same can't be said for Admin Beinfest, and nothing says "great GM" like competing without a lot of money IMO.

    FIGHT!

    Ned Yost has to be the worst manager in baseball. This is the second year in a row they have just suddenly began to fall apart once August began. Are you kidding me? It's been 4 games (terrible sample size)...and they are 2-2 in August. Ahh that is right, the Cubs series was technically late July, my bad. My point still stands though, he has to be the worst manager in baseball. He will get the rest of the season to try and prove me wrong though, but I wouldn't be surprised if they miss the playoffs somehow.
  5. The media is in the tank for McCain. :lol :lol :lol I am just going to assume this is an attempt at humor. The media should be wearing a skirt and have pom poms when they talk about Barack Obama. Without the media, Miss Clinton would be McCain's opponent in the first place.

  7. Obama is awful without the teleprompter, and he leads in the polls. He'd be stupid to debate McCain at this point.
  8. It's not about his political views, it's about the fact that he ran over a guy and kept going without stopping. He has then proceeded to deny that he did it. You clearly don't know much about brain tumors.

  10. Wouldn't surprise me if Obama wanted this to get out there, however I think the logic behind that would not be to make himself look like some humble man. Rather, the logic would be use this to quell the neverending rumors that he's Muslim, which the stupid continue to believe for some reason. I hope that isn't the case though, that'd be low.
  11. It's for sure LF. The only reason you don't see ALL the bad fielders put out there is you have to at least be able to run a little bit to play OF, so if you can't, you go to 1B of course.

    Manny Ramirez

    Article is pure ignorance and especially bitterness. They hadn't won in 86 years (well, it was 83 when he got there, but whatever), Manny produces there big time for just shy of 8 seasons, is maybe THE key guy for two world championships including winning a World Series MVP, and you say all that when he leaves? I know he left on bad terms and had been a pain in the ass the last month or so, but that doesn't change what he did for the Red Sox. I hate when people are like that when players leave, yeah he left on bad terms but he did great things in and for Boston.
  13. The Braves are staring a long term rebuilding project straight in the face now. Chipper, although talented, is still injury prone and getting old, Hudson is only signed through 2009 and he might not pitch again for them, Smoltz and Glavine very well may be done, and so on. The good news for them is they have A TON of money freeing up this off season and next, so they are well equipped to rebuild if they can get some production from their farm system and be prudent on the market.
  14. Well with the way it played out, we probably lose without Griffey tonight, so he paid dividends right away. He was 2 for 3 with both hits being 2 out, RBI singles. He also drew a walk and had a run scored, and even his only out of the night was a 400 foot flyout to right center that's a homer in almost any park in baseball (Kansas City's place is HUGE). He only had one ball hit to him in CF though, an easy popup, so we'll see there, but the Sox won 4-2 tonight so good start.
  15. lol my ex girlfriends cousin was traded for ken griffey junior. epic. have they released all the people yet? All we hear is griffey traded to chisox. Nick Masset and Danny Richar went to the Reds.
