Well, I didn't like any of the options up there, so I picked you're a moron since I had nothin better to pick. J/K Nick. :lol:

I think the D Rays will be close to respectable this year, Baltimore is the new keeper of the basement.

Yes and Ryan Rupe will win 30 games and the AL Cy Young. That took a lot.

What is up with Rick Ankiel and I think Brent Abernathy second baseman for Tampa will win a gold glove. That is a real possibility!

It could happen. Who would have thought the Patriots would do what they did?

One word for ya: "Expos."

Montreal won their home opener a few days ago with a come-from-behind 7-6 victory over (ironically) the Tampa Bay Devil Rays in front of 35,000 frenchmen.


Next day, in a 6-5 loss to the 'Rays, the 'Spos "attracted" 4,500 fans.


Don't expect it to continue, is what I'm saying :nod:

Those games were actually against the Marlins, not the D-Rays.

Here is a Joke of the Day with a baseball twist so I'll post it here.
Rick Ankiel throws a pitch in St. Louis and Chuck Knoblauch fields it in KC. He throws it back to Rick and it ends up in a cave in Afghanistan hitting Osama bin Laden on the head, killing him. (Borrowed from Jay Mohr, ESPN.)

Right, Sean.. sorry 'bout that... ya, that's why it was ironic -- 'cuz they were playing the Marlines who forget-his-first-name-Loria owns after he dumped the Expos.
