For which side? I was offered Hamilton for Haren straight up but needed to get some sort of pitching in return.

Hey manram, you gonna cry when the jays sweep the redsox!!! Tons of Bo sox fans here, do they all take a bus over from Boston? We even get a ton of Yankee fans when there here too. It seems like the yanks and red sox have a following that will follow them. One thing is for certain is that when

Whenever the yanks and redsox play the jays, the sky dome is always a sell out. Brings me back to the glory years of the jays setting attendance records back in the day, it's gonna take a playoff run for the dome to sell out on a consistent basis. But baseball is really starting to become popular in Toronto again. Probably hast something to do with the leafs and raptors being so garbage lol

I hate Red Sox fan. I remember around 2000-2001 i knew ZERO Red Sox fans. I saw ZERO sox fans. Always felt like loner wearing my Sox hat and jerseys. 2004 comes. They win the World Series. Next thing i know a infestation of Boston fans. Plates on cars, flags hanging from houses everything you could think of. I would get in conversations with multiple people about the team and they would have no clue. My favorite conversation of all time. 

Guy pulls his car into work. He was a customer. Got out of his truck with his Sox mud flaps and decals on the windows and bumpers. I start the talk with a hey how bout those Sox. IT was right after the big signings of Crawford and Gonzo. I say to him big signings in the off season and he says ya that Adriana guy is going to be pretty good. NO JOKE. He called Adrian Adriana. They i blow it off and talk about how the pen could be shakey with Papelbon. Guy had no idea who he was. Conversation ended and left him standing alone.

ManRam,

its not just the Sox you can say that about any team. I have 5 friends who are sox fans. only 1 of them is a true fan and actually knows what the hell is talking about... one had 0 idea who TED WILLIAMS OR CARL YASTRZEMSKI were! 

I gave him a layup, saying who waved a home run fair vs the reds in game 6 of the world series... you could've heard crickets..

This Sox team is in hugeeee trouble. No pitching at all. Pedey, Ells, Papi, A-Gon are the only four hitters that are worth anything.

Youk is always hurt. Plus he has been in the biggest funk since end of last season.

Aviles, Sweeney, Ross journey men enough said.

McDonald should never be on an MLB roster.

Saltalamaccia has 40 K's in last 80 AB's! 

other then Lester on the Staff, I do not trust a single other guy to stay healthy or do much.

Beckett is always hurt, but when he is healthy he is a horse. Same thing with Clay. I give Beckett a Pass only bc he was key in 07. 

I'm glad Papelbum left, he's been mediocre since the Angels smacked him around in 09 ALDS. Really hated what they did with the bullpen this year. Aceves closing? Why? Melancon i'm still up in the air with. The lackey signing still to this day makes no goddamn sense. I have 0 Idea why the hell this signing happened. It was 100% panic it has to be

I still don't know why Jose Inglesis isn't starting at SS. HE cant hit for garbage he'll bat around the mendoza line, but kid can field. Also why the hell do you trade Lowrie and Scutaro and not have an SS ready?

I still think the Sox win between 85-90 games though, as long as the key players can stay healthy

if anyone is watching the Jays/ Sox game. 

RemDog and Orsillo are showing the Sox clubhouse and what leads to the dugout. Pretty neat to see it live and whats going on in there

I know it's only his first game, but when the jays lost out on the Darvish bidding war i was kinda relived, I just don't see these japanese pitchers coming over to north America and playing up to their names. Thinking dice-k.

Wondering why OBP hasn't taken over as the main stat when it comes to showing a players effincey to get on base, why does BA still reign supreme? Also Manram, would you ever consider changing BA to OBP in our fantasy league? What are some opinions on this. I'm not saying we should do it (love the way our baseball league is already) just curious to see if people think the same way I do about OBP

Dante,

am I crazy to believe the Senators beat my Rangers in round 1. Everyone is saying im not a true fan for saying that. I just don't see Ottawa losing, it was the worst possible matchup for my Rangers. This coming from a kid who has seen at the worst 75/82 games this season. Hell I get text updates on the Rangers for periods/goals in each game this way even when I cant watch I know whats going on.

I actually have always used OBP + OPS as a fantasy catagory along with QS to make a 6 x 6 league. This year I went away from it not sure why.

Funny you say that about OBP. Was thinking about it in the shower yesterday. I think in the future we will be changing. Nothing worse then owning a top tier player who is always IBB. Should get something for it.

I really don't see the sens beating the rangers over a 7 game series. Lund and the rangers look really good this year. Ottawa has a history of playoff letdowns, and when in doubt about who will take a series always side with the team that has a elite goalie. I say rangers in 5 or 6

Dante,

I guess its the Rangers fan in me. They haven't been anything since 1993-1994 when we lifted Lord Stanley. I am so used to losing in the playoffs it becomes a habit
