Here's something to ponder: Devil Rays starters had a better ERA in 2006 than Red Sox starters.

It's that statistic that led to the three most expensive words in baseball: "Hello, Mr. Boras?"

How true that is. The sox had to make a deral with the Devil himself to shore up their staff. It's funny how it looked so strong at the beginning of last year and everything fell apart.

Reds Sign Harang to 4-Year Deal

The Cincinnati Reds and RHP Aaron Harang have avoided arbitration by agreeing to terms on a 4-year contract through the 2010 season with a club option for 2011.
Harang, 28, in 2006 put together one of the best seasons of any pitcher in baseball. The Reds' Opening Day starter led the National League in strikeouts (216) and complete games (6), tied for the NL lead in starts (35) and victories (16) and ranked among the leaders in innings pitched (234.1, 3rd), ERA (3.76, 11th), shutouts (2, T3rd), ERA on the road (2.98, 3rd), fewest walks per 9ip (2.2, 9th) and strikeouts per 9ip (8.3, 6th).

Looks pretty good going in to this year as well so you just never know.

RE: Devil Ray starters

Yeah, they were so good that Tampa lost over 100 games (101 to be exact) last season.

If he think he can get more money somewhere else he will be gone.

Maybe a trip across town will do him good?

From the football thread:


quote:
whining? heh heh, you take me far too seriously when it comes to baseball. I've only recently started following the Red Sox with any interest. I was terribly blase about them for years and only post in the baseball thread to get the exact responses as the two above. I wouldn't give a dead rats ass for the Red Sox or freakin' baseball in general. You guys talk about trades and contracts and prospects and that's cool but I haven't got the slightest idea what you're talking about and I don't want to. If the Sox win, fine, if they lose that's fine too. Overpaid immigrants that would otherwise be pumping gas in Biloxi if it weren't for the fact they can hit a baseball or throw one 100 mph. Just my opinion.



I have nothing furthur to add.

He's owed something like $81 million over the next 3 seasons after the 2007 season. I recognize someone could give him a larger amount than that but it would be spread out over far more than 3 years. I don't see A-Rod opting out of this deal. Not because of the money but because he wants to suceed in NY and become one of the great Yankees. The guy already has probably around $150 million. How much more of that can you spend? His only real challenge now is to win a WS and get his face on a nice shiney plaque in an outfield somewhere in the Bronx.

We don't need a third baseman or a shortstop. The guys we have at those positions are better than the two that you have.




I would rather have Wright than A-Rod. But I like Jeter. He brings the all those intangibles to the field that you don't see in stats.

Reyes has the potential to be so much more than Jeter. Only time will tell. I remember last year when the Post was trying to create a stir between the two. As a fan I can't get into the hoopla. To many years between the two. Reyes is on the way up Jeter is winding down.

Obviously, there is nothing I would like more than for PAYrod to win a ring.

But as for a shiny plaque out in LF.. That will NEVER happen.

There is only 2 players on the team right now that have a shot at that.
#2
#42 ( Though that is retiered for Jackie anyway)

I dunno, based on what I've seen I think #24 may get there...at the very least it is too early to say he doesn't have a shot...

And don't be suprised to see #21..the warrior someday

Ok, based on who is already in Monument Park, I guess I could see #21 (has not been issued since O'Neill retired in 2001) and #51 going out there at some point.

As for #42, he'll obviously be in the HoF and Monument Park, but it will be interesting to see how the Yankees handle his number. They are the only team not to list 42 along with their team's retired numbers (the number was grandfathered for all active players wearing it in '97, and Rivera is the only one still active) and to date Robinson has no presense in Monument Park.

I didn't realize there were so many non-Hall of Famers in Monument Park....

Hall of Fame members in Monument Park:

Miller Huggins (never wore a number on his uniform, and so no number is retired for him)
Lou Gehrig
Babe Ruth
Ed Barrow
Joe DiMaggio
Mickey Mantle
Joe McCarthy (never wore a number on his uniform, and so no number is retired for him)
Casey Stengel
Phil Rizzuto
Lefty Gomez (his number 11 has not been retired)
Whitey Ford
Bill Dickey
Yogi Berra
Reggie Jackson
Red Ruffing (his number 15 was not retired, but was later worn by and retired for Munson)
Mel Allen (Ford Frick Award, broadcaster's equivilent of HoF)

Not Hall of Fame members in Monument Park:

Jacob Ruppert (owner 1915-39)
Thurman Munson (catcher 1969-79)
Elston Howard (outfielder and catcher 1955-67, coach 1969-80)
Roger Maris (outfielder 1960-66)
Billy Martin (second baseman 1950-57, manager 1975-78, 1979, 1983, 1985 and 1988)
Allie Reynolds (pitcher 1947-54, his number 22 has not been retired)
Don Mattingly (first baseman 1982-95, coach since 2004)
Bob Sheppard (public address announcer since 1951)
Ron Guidry (pitcher 1975-88, coach 2006)

There is also a monument to the victims and rescue workers of the 9/11 attacks, dedicated on September 11, 2002.

I love them both for what they did for the NYY, but I just dont see that happening.

If they were going to retire Paul's number, they would have done it already.

Scott, I am assuming you mean Cano?? I would LOVE for him to earn that. I think he can the kid has a good head on his shoulders and seems to play hard 24/7 with little to no attitude.
I wonder where he learned that from???

Right now, Reyes is a better player than Jeter. And Reyes will get better. Jeter is a lock HOF'er and if Reyes continues to play like he did in 2006, he will be there someday as well. I would go as far to say that Reyes will be better trhan Wright when all is said and done.



Gee, I'd hate to be left out of this Yankee lovefest....

Seriously though, I know what you're saying and agree up to the point where the game was on the line and I needed the big hit. In that most important of situations Jeter is still the man by far (Ugh...did I just say that?)

Durability might be the defining factor between who is ultimately the better player between Reyes and Wright. Hopefully it will be a contest we will enjoy watching for years to come.

Jim, you feeling ok Bro?

On a side note, I think Reyes and Wright will be MEGA superstars for years to come.
Personally I think Wright is and will continue to be better. But what the hell do Yankee fans know, right?

One of my favorite Oriole pitchers died the other day.

Steve Barber. Pitched 8 seasons with the O's, from '60 to '67. Lifetime 121-106. Lifetime stats comparable to Al Downing's.

2 time All-Star. One of a few pitchers in history to lose a No-Hitter. Traded to the Yankees in mid-season in '67.

Born & grew up in Takoma Park, MD, just a few miles from my hometown.


RIP Steve

I saw that Chuck

I was gonna mention that here when I saw he pitched for the O's.

I am too young to remember him playing though.


Lose a no-hitter, eh??
Yea, I know a little about that
