The AL East will be tougher this year since Toronto and Baltimore should be competitive, and the Devil Rays will be improved. And, of course, the Sox and Yankees will be battling for the top spot. Boston has too much depth not to win the AL East this season. The curse of A-Rod will continue for the Yankees!

Jeff. I like your thought that Cleveland will win the AL central, How much of a blonde moment could I have had about that?? TROT’S THERE NOW, SO GOOD THINGS SHOULD HAPPEN FOR THEM NOW!!

Ellen, I think the AL Central is deep, but I have a feeling about Cleveland.

Hey everybody. I am a Mariners fan from Seattle who is having to deal with all the Ichiro trade speculations. Its obvious the guy is going to Boston or the Yankees. I dont want him to leave but if he is I would much rather see him playing for you guys than the fu**ing Yankees. Just curious to see the opinions on your guys end. Who could you guys see being shipped to us for Ichiro, and would it really be that exciting for you guys to have D-Mat and Ichiro on the same team together? Just curious.

Matsui and Ichiro in the same outfield would be funny. Those 2000 and 2001 seasons don’t sit well I guess.

No but the 1995 season when a decent Mariners team kicked the Yankee’s a** in the playoffs still sits well. He’ll prolly end up in New York for Damon and pitching anyway. Then again with how badly the Yankees are falling apart right now, Ichiro prolly will want to go to a real contender. Not one from 7 years ago that is desperately trying to pretend to still be one. Dont forget that a majority of those players that won your championships for you were taken from that ’95 Mariners team that had New York crying that October just like everytime things dont go your way. The only thing better than watching my Steelers beat the Seahawks in the super bowl two years ago, was watching the Red Sox wail on the Yankees finally. It was that one last nail in the coffin of those great Yankees teams that used to exist.

Ichiro is good, but we probably won’t need him. We’ll have Ellisbury in CF by 2008/2009 and JD Drew is locked up for at least 3 years. There is no way we’re going replace a power hitter like Manny with Ichiro. In order to accomplish that, we’d have to beef up the power in our infield, which is unlikely. If anything, the only player I see going to the Red Sox is Andrew Jones, who would be an acceptible replacement for Manny. He may not hit for average, but he can drive in runs as well as most, and is a gold glove fielder.

I’m not interested in the Sox acquiring Ichiro. He is a great talent, but we have depth in the outfield with Pena, Crisp, Drew and Manny. And Jacoby Ellsbury is a very exciting prospect who could start in center field for Boston in 2008. No way should we trade prospects for Ichiro.

Jeff

http://www.bosoxbanter.mlblogs.com

Also, I bet that Manny plays out his contract in Boston (it expires at the end of the 2008 season) and the the Red Sox will sign a power bat to replace him. Likely, it will be a power-hitting first baseman, and Youkilis will move to third, but it’s too early to tell.

Jeff

http://www.bosoxbanter.mlblogs.com

Ok cool. Just curious what everyone was thinking over here. You dont think they will try to get anything for Manny, though, before his contract expires?

You know, I’m soooo happy that the start of the 2007 season is just around trhe corner. So is my husband. Now I can stop complaining that there is no baseball to watch and he can watch 24 and the rest of “his shows” in peace. Come on b-ball!!!

I would imagine the mariners fanbase would have to live 12 years in the past, the same year they ended up getting ousted in the next round and had little cheater joey cora cry hysterically.

I’m sorry, am I really talking to a fan of a team that has no future for the next decade? Try being 500 in the West before you start to try talking about how good another team is. I doubt the yankees trade for Ichiro, if anything they get him in free agency, but I don’t think they go for him either way. Not with tabada, matsui, damon, cabrera, abreu and a couple other lower level minor leaguers in the picture.

Yeah the yankees falling apart by improving on a team with the best record in the league last year, your facts are straight, great job. I know how realistic it is for a team to pretend to be a contender the last seven years when it has included two pennants and 4 alcs appearences, not to mention a division title and playoff appearence every single year, they are really huge fakers.

The majority of players taken from the mariners? Tino Martinez, and…..and….hmm, jeff nelson? 25 players, and two from the mariners? The majority? Do they teach math to seattle fans? Why don’t you include jay buhner from the yankees? I’m sorry fans were upset that your players can’t stay in the baselines and your lineup had a tremendous amount of steroid use. It’s ok though, I’ve seen my team win 4 times, how many times, exactly, have you seen the mariners in the world series in their existance? I thought so. Have fun watching football, the steelers really showed up this year.

Try posting a prediction, even the people that hate the yankees the most aren’t dumb enough to consider them fake contenders and have them in the playoffs.

Im not a hardcore fan of the Mariners. I just love baseball in general, especially watching the Yankees get beat, so I dont have to worry about waiting another decade. All I have to do is wait for another expansion team like the D-Backs or Marlins with a quarter of the money you guys do, but twice as much heart to get my wish.

The only thing that matters is championships. As long as you guys arent getting them, and I get to keep watching this team full of overpaid a**holes lose and start going for eachothers knecks, I’m happy. Its not even that I hate the the Yankees so much. Its that I hate Yankee fans who will boo their favorite player for going on a 3 game slump. You’re all a bunch of whining babies. I hope someone’s been turned down recently trying to get a goat into Yankee stadium and put a curse on you guys for next 100 years. How nice would that be to see the Red Sox take 25 more championships in the next century so all you guine*s in New York can see what its like. But just to clarify. I am well aware of how crappy the Mariners are. We have quite possibly the worst management in baseball. But cheering for a team that ***** is just part of being a good fan. If God willing, a lesson all New Yorkers will have to soon learn.
I will recant on saying you arent contenders, though. But thats all you are now. If you guys were the Persian’s the Red Sox are deffinently the Romans now.

Given that this blog is obviously going to be extremely bias, who do people think might win the WS other than the Sox?

Yankeevmm – you say “even the people that hate the yankees the most aren’t dumb enough to consider them fake contenders”. Are you impyling Red Sox fans are usually dumb? Is there an empirical study done on the intelligence of baseball fans and the team they follow?

Guinneas? Do you typically go into public forums and throw the N word around? Your credibility stopped long ago but now your human decensy ceases to exist as well.

You couldn’t possibly love baseball with so much hatred for people you have ever met, especially if you call them by prejudice names.

Not to mention your basis on some sort of redsox domination is based on absolutely nothing, along with every attempt at a stat or anything besides racial emotional comments.

No Brendan, I was actually complimenting sox fans for not letting their distaste interfere with their logic. You aren’t blinded by hatred enough to think the yankees are not conteners. I would really appreciate if you stopped trying to jump down my throat for anything I ever say.

As far as I know, no there are no studies done on the intelligence of baseball fans, though I don’t feel intelligence as a whole has anything to do with how valid or intelligent somebodies baseball knowledge is.

I am just arguing my point.

If I said “Even Vince isn’t dumb enough to realize the Red Sox fans are contenders” then it is implying you are dumb. Also, I have no doubt that if I said the sentence I said just there, you would call me out on it!

lol yeah but you misinterpreted, nor did I single anybody out in my statement. I was implying the fanbase that hates the yankees the most, and their team is actually an arch rival, still recognizes the fact the yankees have a team that can compete and more than likely will make the playoffs. It was complimenting redsox fan baseball intelligence.

Give me a break with your racism bull ****. Comparing it to the N word is rediculous. Name a single Italian that was inslaved. And to say Ive never met any of you is bull ****. My best friend is an Italian from Jersey and so is his entire family. When I call him a guin*y he laughs at me and calls me a ******* mick. Try getting a sense of humor, cause your guilt trip isnt gonna work on me. All you did was prove that Yankee fans are a bunch of babies.

Are you seriously going there right now on a baseball blog? It is the N word for italians, regardless of how your “friend” of which I am not, reacts to it. Just because you have low standards aroun your friends does not make it ok in public vernacular. Nor did I ever say you met an Italian. Name an italian that was enslaved? How about all roman catholics fed to the lions for 2000 years, not to mention who cares? You have to be enslaved to take offense to racist comments?

name a black person alive today that was enslaved. It makes no difference, you have no business using the word in any situation whether you’re italian or not.

Before i go I just wanted to show all the ’95 Mariners that have sinced played for the Yankees:
Randy Johnson, Jim Mecir, Jeff Nelson, Ron Villone, Mike Blowers, Tino Martinez, Alex Rodriguez, Luis Sojo, and Darren Bragg

I know how hard counting can be Yankeevmm, but that looks like more then two to me. Long live the Roman Empire!

you said during their championships….johnson villone, blowers, a rod and bragg never won and none of those guys passed tino ever played any key role for the yankees winning. Learn how to comprehend your own writing between the racism. Your exact words were during their championship teams and if you look at any team at this poing in free agency years, you’ll find a similar trend.

“Dont forget that a majority of those players that won your championships for you were taken from that ’95 Mariners team”-you

“Before i go I just wanted to show all the ’95 Mariners that have sinced played for the Yankees:

Randy Johnson, Jim Mecir, Jeff Nelson, Ron Villone, Mike Blowers, Tino Martinez, Alex Rodriguez, Luis Sojo, and Darren Bragg” -you now

players that won “all those championships” for the yankees: Jeff Nelson, Tino Martinez and Luis Sojo. Mecir and bragg may have been on the roster but did not help in any way to win any championships. 3<22. Majority=no.

Now now Vince, don’t go jumping down his throat.

That doesn’t even make sense. You find me an area where what he said can be interpreted in any other way, and then get personally insulted with remarks having nothing to do with baseball and then try and tell me that.

Btw, does anybody remember an article voting on MLB’s best uniforms? I recall both the yankees and sox in the top 5 but I can’t find the article anywhere.

I actually forgot to mention one thing before I go. In order for that to be a “racist” term, being Italian would have to make you a race of people, which you are not you idiot. If you want to call me ethnocentric then so be it. But how many of your ancestors came here to pick cotton or died in the heat building railroads. An Italian getting bent outta shape over that word is like a white person getting offended by being called a cracker. Its rediculous and you know it. Nobody had it worse comin here than Blacks, Irish, or Asians so shut the **** up. What kind of a Yankee fan hangs out on a Red Sox blog other than instigating a**hole? Sleep tight sweet heart. I hope I didnt your panties in too bad of a twist on St. Valentine’s day.

I hope I didn’t your panties in too bad? huh?

White is not a race. Italian is. “an arbitrary classification of modern humans, sometimes, esp. formerly, based on any or a combination of various physical characteristics, as skin color, facial form, or eye shape, and now frequently based on such genetic markers as blood groups.”-dictionary.com

Therefore Italians would be a race, yet white people would not. Nobody had it worse? It is clear your knowledge of anything regarding the subject, seeing as you have no issue being low class with your best friends, is very slim and thus arguing with your constant inaccuracies really is just not beneficiary for anybody.

Italian immigrants never build railroads or did manual labor, or faced racism, or hate crimes, or unfair treatment, you’re absolutely right, silly me, I guess all those ancestry projects I did must have been made up primary resources.

So you hate the yankees, new yorkers, italians, is there anything else you would like to add to your narrowing mind? What a waste of space, hopefully Ian will delete the majority of comments tonight because this has gotten out of hand.

Egads! I havent posted in a loooong while, but I gotta say…

So. Much. Immaturity. Stop with the insulting, people!

Cant we all play nice? I’m horribly drunk due to being single on my most hated day of the year, and Im not insulting anyone!

1 day 11hours 47 minutes till pitchers and catcher

hey agas, how have you been?

Hopefully someone did something for you today and if not, don’t worry it’s almost over

Hey seattle, isn’t fagan an Irish name? So you’re back. Take your lithium, it truly helps.

I have never been so glad to see u arnie haha. My thoughts the whole time.

Nice idea

Oh, Vince, BTW, I was curious if you are doing a random tandem pre-season show? Or have you already?

I actually had my first show this morning (1am-2am, the time slot was our 4th choice), the only MLB stuff we covered last night was the pitching rotation comparisons, of which I gently bashed ESPN for saying the sox had a better rotation than the tigers.

As it gets closer I’m sure baseball will become much more prominent, but last night we mostly covered college sports and the **** scandal at CCSU

We’re trying to figure out how to get the shows ready for podcasts because we understand most people are not awake 1am on Wednesday mornings.

Yankeevmm – it was a joke – don’t go getting your knickers in a twist

Brendan, point taken….why are people obsessed with the status of my underwear tonight?

Because it’s Valentine’s Day perhaps? Plus I’ve always had a fascination with it.

Still joking.

zachary u don’t go to central connecticut college do u?

I went with the Indians because I think they have the same sort of dynamic as the White Sox and Tigers over the last two years – great starting pitching (Cliff Lee, Sabathia, Jake Westbrook, and I think Byrd could be pretty good), some pop in the line up (Hafner, possibly Marte this year) and some speed (Sizemore). They also have a lot of strong players who could have big years if everything falls into place for them (Nixon, Foulke, Johnny Peralta, Casey Blake). It’s a tough division but that only enhances their chances of making it through the playoffs if they get there.

I feel that the Indians are a good sleeper team in the AL Central, though it may be hard for them to get anywhere unless they win 95+ games.

And, lets please give in to all of the trolling and insults. We don’t need to repeat what happened this fall. Don’t let (he-who-shall-not-be-named) bring this blog down, like last fall.

The mets really don’t scare me all that much. I expect pedro to be less of a factor and glavine to be like glavine of old with the mets, not the braves. Pelfrey and maine should be solid but I just think the phillies have a much better rotation. Though the mets offense is still solid, but not as deep and franco has to slow down eventually.

Hi, All:

If you recall, I am starting my own free fantasy baseball league through Yahoo Sports. All the leagues on Yahoo have humorous names. I’m naming mine, The Manny Ramirez Behind the Monster Bash.

Any of you regulars who are interested in participating can feel free to e-mail me your e-mail address, and I’ll e-mail you back signup instructions and notification of when the draft will take place (sometime in late March). You can long onto the live draft via the Internet, or you can signup to have the computer pick your team. Those of you who have participated in Yahoo Sports fantasy leagues know what I mean. This is fun because it takes little time, and all the stats are handled by Yahoo.

Well, the other day I was thinking just how nice it’s been on the blogs lately and wondered how long it was going to last; I guess I just got my answer. But we all know what has to be done. If there is no fuel added to the fire it will go out.
Vince, are you ready for the yearly rivalry to begin?? Oh, I mean the one between the Sox and Yanks LOL. I’m really glad we are almost there.

I know I sound like a loser, but, can we try to keep the personal insults out of this blog?

I enjoy this because i love baseball, and with no games yet, reading about the sport is all ive got lol. So id really appreciate if from now on we could try and express baseball love and spirit, not racist comments, or personal attacks. Please, if someone does say something rude or obnoxious (is that how you spell it?) just ignore them!

12 days till first spring training game

go sox!

-and baseball!

Sometimes one of us will say something here that is not well received; but all of us except one can be reasoned with, and if one of us takes something the wrong way a simple explanation suffices to rectify the situation. However, there is one blogger here, (who by the way caused me to hesitate before signing up) who cannot be reasoned with. And there is nothing to do about it, especially not give that person power by being offended. My guess is he is bi-polar. Tough row to hoe. Take the medicine, start feeling pretty good, get off the meds. Next thing you know depression sets in followed by anger, paranoia and sometimes halucinations, voices and such. Years ago one of my employees ended up committing suicide. Heartbreaking story, left behind a wife and daughter.(He was a native of Boston, and a Sox fan, too). Not something to play around with. Another prep cook we had working for us landed in jail briefly. That is how I know a little about it.
I don’t know where I am going with this it just sort of spilled out. But if he is bi-polar, that is a fire that feeds on itself and will not go out. So we have to deal with it by not being offended and letting Ian and Jeff, on his blog, do their deletions.

I just read on the Indian Blog the Keith Foulke pulled out of Spring Training and is retiring. Best Wishes Keith!

There is something I’m not understanding about all of these predictions from the sox fans, and honestly I’m just curious for some clarification.

A lot of you obviously have chosen the redsox to win the world series, which, no qualms there. I am assuming you guys chose them, in part for wishful thinking, and in part for their starting staff on paper and maybe their offense. That said, many of you have chosen the mets and the indians to win their divisions and a lot also the mets to lose the world series.

The mets have terrible starting pitching, at least to me. They were ranked one of the top 3 least improved teams this offseason and they are without pedro and added chan ho park from last year. That means glavine (another year older, and has had one good year with the mets where he fell off a little down the stretch), then pelfrey, maine, park, oliver, and some other mediocre pitchers. Past glavine and maybe maine, i just don’t see a starting rotation that is playoff caliber. They have a great offense, but it is less deep after this offseason, but is it the bullpen, the offense or the starters that seem extremely mediocre to me, or is it just the lack of competition that has many picking them?

Pitching cost them the world series last year and now it is worse off, I don’t get it.

The indians have an awful rotation, unless someone steps up. Foulke retired which leaves jow borowski as their closer and then not much else. We remember their issues last year, I don’t think borowski is the solution. I recognize they have an exciting young offense, but is that enough to overcompensate for their bullpen and what could be a solid starting staff? Sabathia is injury proned, to me their starting staff isn’t that great either. Why do they seem so wonderful to you guys?

I’m reluctant to even post a prediction. Baseball is such an unreliable sport. So many variables, so many things that can go right and wrong. I don’t think the Mets will be able to do what they did last year. I’m going to pick a long shot and root for the Marlins. The padres look ok, and if the dodgers added a big bat, they’d be formidable. The NL central is kind of lame at the moment. As for the AL, I still don’t buy Cleavland being THE TEAM in 2007, especially in their division. Chicago and Minnisota will be tough teams to beat, yet I don’t think they will be as good this year. Cleveland may be the number 3 team in the AL Central if lucky. The Tigers still have my vote for that division. In the AL West, I’ll go with the Angels. I don’t see Oakland having as much pop with Piazza as their DH. AL East is going to be interesting, as usual. Toronto will have a potent offense, but their starting pitching staff is unimpressive besides Halliday and the oft-injured Burnett. I think as usual, The battle will be between the Sox and the Yanks for the division. Loser gets Wild Card. Sox take Marlins in 6 games. ‘Nuff Said.
* I don’t know why I pick the Marlins. I really have no prediction of who will take the NL Pennant. Not the Mets.

But then again I’m always confident in February.

Yankeevmm, Vince, right? I understand exactly what your saying about the Mets. I chose them to win the division, but I predict them falling apart in the playoffs, and the Phillies to come out on top in the NL. They have strong, young pitching, which if they can stay healthy and not crack under the pressure, they can ride the bat of Ryan Howard and Chase Utley. My brother is a huge Phillies fan, and as much as I hate to agree with his “this is our year” bantering, which I receive from him every year (most notably because he is also an Eagles fan), I really do think the Phillies have something special this year. Hows anyone else feel about this?

The Yahoo! Sports fantasy baseball league, Manny’s BehindtheMonster Bash, is now created. If you are interested in joining, please e-mail me your personal e-mail address, and I will send you the league ID and password. It is free to participate, and to make it interesting I have incorporated an assortment of stat categories – including doubles, triples and holds. So far, Vince and Jamie from this blog, and Andrew from another Yankees blog, have signed up, and hopefully Ellen will give it a try! We want 12 teams to make it even more challenging, so we welcome your participation!

Regarding the Mets and Indians, I think that both teams will have a decent rotation, and they definitely have formidable lineups. Cleveland’s bullpen is improved, even with the retirement of Foulke, and the MEts have a dependable bullpen. I do agree that Philadelphia is solid, and you can never count out Atlanta. Florida is a contender as well. The NL East will be interesting to watch, as will the AL Central.

LOL, I’m italian and I’m a Red Sox fan. reading this blog makes me wonder if there is something wrong with it.

anyone that didnt pick the dodgers to win at least the wild card has definitely not taken their prediction serious. that staff is downright nasty with the differant pitching styles it presents. look for the dodgers to resemble the whitey herzog coached cardinals teams of the 80′s that won with speed timely hitting and most important pitching. wait until kemp gets his seasoning and we got ourselves a legit 30-30 guy at least. also anyone that predicted the mets must reside in an east coast baseball bubble and cannot be taken serious. pitching wins championships, and the rotation they have is extremely old on one end and extremely young on the other, that doesnt bode well, especially with the phills getting garcia. as for the american league if beckett can actually get people out again the sox rotation is probably the best outside of detroit. detroit did nothing but get better and no one in the central looks to take them out except the indians. the white sox pitching staff took a hit and the indians just had a bad year. they have some nasty lefties in that rotation and if they are healthy watch out for them. and finally if i was a sox fan id be delighted to get 110 games out of judy drew. he is the complete polar opposite of everything trot nixon was as a player, and as a dodger fan see theo epstein as a blessing in disguise.

Brendan, I want to get back to you re your 11:09 PM post. If you look at the pattern of that person’s(the un-named) posts from last summer and fall and the most recent seattle posts you will notice the same attempt to bait someone into a “discussion” and then the rapid descent into name calling and other madness. If it is another blogger,God help us not 2 of ‘em, then it is a remarkable mimic.
Also, it has occurred to me that in our hyper-sensitive society we are giving away too much of our personal power, as Carlos Castenada would have put it. When we allow someone like that to insult us, we really hand over a lot of control over our emotional well-being to some sociopathic drooler. If he were to call me a filthy heeb, for example, and I was outraged or felt the need to defend myself, I would be handing myself over to a crazy person. When we get all self-righteously angry over some slur that we KNOW is baseless, we are falling into a trap and are saying, in effect, here control me. So this PC society we’ve created is a two-edged sword, IMHO. Don’t let some fool turn you into a victim.

Too bad I haven’t a clue what will happen next season, other than the Sox getting in the playoffs and going deep into post-season. Then I could have some intelligent things to say about baseball instead of making up a philosophy of un-political-correctness.

arnie – fair enough, just wanted to see. I think you’re right, people should let it roll off their back.

Yankeev – I don’t agree that the Indians have an awful rotation (Sabathia, Westbrook, Byrd, Lee), but I do agree that it will be hard for them to come out of their division. As for picking the Mets, well they just seem like the most solid contender out of the NL, but really there’s more teams that have a shot of winning it that it’s really a toss up.

Good luck to Keith Foulke in his retirement. I know there were many elements to winning the WS, but his efforts were heroic. He threw six scoreless innings in the ALCS, including four in the space of a day in Games four and five. I think the way he backed out before the season began, rather than participate in Spring Training to get the Indians on the hook for his contract, was extremely classy.
