Julio Lugo is locked in for another year at $9 million, too. Ugh. And Matsuzaka...holy crap .
But at least Josh Beckett and Jon Lester are coming back to form. Talk about a strong 1-2 punch at the top of the rotation! And it seems really strange that Papelbon has been one of the shakier members of the bullpen lately. Tells you something about the 'pen. Daniel Bard is going to be a hell of a pitcher.
Agreed. But he moved from Montreal to NY the same time I did, so I've always liked him.
'86 Mets baby! Whooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
You're not still angry over that 8 game, three series sweep to start the season are you? Or is it the ALCS comeback in '04? How embarrassing it must have been to not be able to close out the series, up 3 games to none, no less.
Actually, we did that on purpose so we could clinch the wildcard at home. We were playing for it anyway. It would have been stupid to clinch a post season berth at Yankee stadium with the division still undecided. Now we have something to celebrate tonight when Fire Marshall Bill gets his 8th win of the season.
