Default Thoughts of the Day -- August

Here we go boys and girls... August and then the final push thru Spetember.
Here's how I have it at the end of August (since I have nothing else to post ):
AL east - Redsox
AL central - Detroit
AL west - Oakland
Wildcard - Yankees

NL east - Mets
NL Central - Cards
NL West - Dodgers
Wildcard - Reds

Abreu is a fine player. Hope he can handle the spotlight that playing in Yankee Stadium brings to him.

Steve, if the Twins have another month like July, they will be 3 games up on the Yankees in the wildcard.

Damn Chi-Sox had to let the Royals get into a tie in the 8th, let it get to 10 before winning 7-5. Jenks had to give up a bottom of the frame homer just to keep Sox fans blood pressure up...

At least they keep pace with Detroit who won 10-4 against TB while the Twins fall back a game by losing to Texas 9-0...

Cubs go crazy on the Diamondbacks 9-3...

Yankees beat the Jays 5-1, and Bobby Abreu had a run in his first game with the Yankees.

C-man, if the Twins have another month like July every team needs to throw in the towel, cuz this things over as far as I'm concerned!

Uhhh... not looking good for the Redsox with Tek on the DL, and Mike Lowell getting hurt today.

The Red Sox have Mirabelli to catch until Veritek comes back, so they'll be OK there. At 3B, they have bigger problems. This is on top of Trot Nixon going down with an arm injury. The injury bug seems to bite some teams hard at bad times doesn't it?

Yeah it does. I'm not too worried about Trot's position because I like Willy Mo filling in. I'm worried about Tek... I like Mirabelli, but he is far from the calibur of player Tek is. And yeah Lowell... In theory you could have Youkils move to 3rd and have Ortiz play 1st. Also you have Cora in that line up too, he can also fill some holes as far as defense is concerned.

Fundamentally they will be okay, but as Buster Olney pointed out this morning, Varitek is the heart of that team. Taking him out is like taking your starting PG out of the lineup. He brings so many intangibles to the field that Mirabelli doesn't.

Freakin' Jeff Weaver! Took him all of about two pitches to give up a homer.
