Red Sox are better team if they do that.

AL East is going to be real tough!

If Blue Jays get anything from their starters the wild card is not coming from the east again!

Yankees, Red Sox, and Blue Jays are going to beat each other out of it. And Tampa could overtake Baltimore.

Bobby Murcer gets good news his brain tumor is clear

What a class guy!


NEW YORK -- Bobby Murcer's brain tumor is "clear," and the New York Yankees broadcaster is eager to begin experimental cancer treatments, the New York Daily News reported Saturday.

Murcer, who had surgery Dec. 28 to remove a malignant brain tumor, has been a Yankees broadcaster since he retired from playing in 1983. He was diagnosed with a brain tumor on Christmas Eve after having headaches.

He recently underwent chemotherapy and radiation treatments to fight the tumor.

"I'm happy to report that the tests have shown that I'm entirely clear in regard to the tumor," Murcer told the newspaper.

The five-time All-Star, who played in the major leagues from 1965-83, is determined to return to the Yankees' YES Network broadcast booth this season. He'll undergo his first treatment Monday in Houston.

"Obviously, this is encouraging news for me, although I know that we're still dealing with an incurable cancer here and just trying to contain it," Murcer said.

From the ESPN link in Gondcar's post



Andy Pettitte has been bothered by back spasms and the Yankees don't want to rearrange Mike Mussina's schedule late in spring training, so the oft-injured Pavano appears to be the most likely candidate to pitch April 2 against the Tampa Bay Devil Rays at Yankee Stadium.



All I can say is that if Carl Pavano is your healthiest pitcher, you may have a few problems.

You shouldn't get too excited. Schilling is almost as old as, well, me. Papelbon hasn't been replaced as a starter, Lester's stamina is questionable. Wakefiled is almost as old as, well, Schilling, plus he was injured last year. I'd say it's a toss up right now as to which staff is in better shape.


Now you're really reaching.

Losing Sanches for a bit, can't be good either.

And I'm not looking forward to the Phillies' patchwork
bullpen at all. I like the fact that Gillick hasn't made a move just
to make a move. But I don't think he'll wait long if the Phils are struggling
in April to make one.

No I wasn't, and apparantly neither was the manager/GM. Most Sox fans were hoping for Papelbon to end up back in the closer role from the beginning, and I think the bullpen got MUCH better when they made that move. Bottom line is the Sox are as deep as anyone with pitching right now. A couple of younger guys that have had real nice springs will probably start the season in the minors, but would have made a lot of major league clubs. I am comfortable with Tavares as #5 starter, he proved to be a capable starter last year and your #5 really just needs to be capable.

Of course injuries could change all that. The Sox had a great starting staff on paper last spring but injuries struck and by May/June we had buys like David Pauley making starts. That's why you can never have enough good arms. But as things now stand, today, I don't know how anyone could say it is a toss up between the Sox and Yanks as to which staff is in better shape. That, my friend, would be called reaching.

that injury bug that bit the team last year might actually be a blessing in disguise for this year. Remember those guys like Devern Hansack (last game of the season no hitter thru 5) and Kason Gabbard who started a lot last year? They're both apparently having great springs and I'm sure the major league experience they gained last year has a lot to do with it.

At least the Sox have a lot of options in terms of starters (including Papelbon) where as the Yankees just seem to be holding their breath for Phillip Hughes to climb the ladder quickly.

Kerry presses baseball on DirecTV deal
By Frederic J. Frommer, Associated Press Writer | March 27, 2007

WASHINGTON --Sen. John Kerry urged Major League Baseball on Tuesday to hold off on a deal to put the sport's "Extra Innings" package of out-of-market games exclusively on DirecTV Group Inc. A top baseball official declined to agree, with opening day less than a week away.

Kerry, D-Mass., made the push at a Senate Commerce Committee hearing on behalf of subscribers to cable TV and EchoStar Communications Corp.'s Dish Network who had received the package previously.

The dispute concerns which homes will receive baseball's new television network in 2009. DirecTV, a satellite service, has agreed to carry that package as part of its deal. The company would also receive an equity stake in the channel.

At Tuesday's hearing, Rob Jacobson, president and CEO of iN Demand, owned by affiliates of the companies that own Time Warner Cable Inc., Comcast Corp. and Cox Communications Inc., offered to carry the package on the same terms that DirecTV is, while putting off the issue of The Baseball Channel until it is launched.

"This would ensure that for the next two years at least, all baseball fans would have access to the 'Extra Innings' package," he said. "If we're unable to reach an agreement when the channel launches, we'd give baseball the right to cancel the 'Extra Innings' deal. We think this is a fair compromise."

Kerry, often playing the role of mediator, got behind the effort.

"What's the matter with that?" he asked Bob DuPuy, baseball's chief operating officer.

"We believe that DirecTV has the right to begin to help us build the channel," DuPuy answered, adding that the cable industry had nine months to negotiate a deal.

Kerry pressed the issue, suggesting that the status quo be kept in place while the sides tried to work out a deal.

DuPuy wouldn't agree to that, although he said, "Our door remains open" for a resolution.

Baseball gave other incumbent carriers until the end of the month to match the $700 million, seven-year deal it announced with DirecTV on March 8. IN Demand recently made an offer it said matched the deal, but Major League Baseball said it fell short.

Sen. Arlen Specter, R-Pa., who has been critical of the National Football League's "Sunday Ticket" deal with DirecTV, which allows viewers to watch teams outside their regional markets, issued a warning to baseball.

"When fans react, Congress reacts," he said, adding, "You may be well advised to act before we do."

Chase Carey, president and CEO of DirecTV, said that the issue was a business one that was best left to the market.

"I don't run down to Washington every time we have a contract issue or a programming issue or a cost issue," he said.

DuPuy said that fans who have gotten the out-of-town games on other providers will still have the option of receiving them this year: by switching to DirecTV or subscribing to MLB.TV to watch the games on the Internet.

"This is not a matter of fans being unable to view Major League Baseball's out-of-market games," he said. "It is a matter of not being able to watch those games on a particular system."

"Extra Innings" had more than a half-million TV subscribers last year.

Carl Vogel, president of EchoStar, said exclusive content deals are bad for fans.

"They harm existing consumers while limiting choices in the future," he said.

Kerry, who has asked the Federal Communications Commission to investigate, said in an interview after the hearing that legislation was a possibility but not his preference.

"Obviously, we're interested in it, a number of senators suggested the possibility of Congress doing something, but I'd like to see the parties get together in the next four days and hopefully resolve this," he said.

"If they can't get together, we are where we are and we'll look at what we're going to do."

When he gets out, he will be old enough to pitch for the Yankees.
Nah...with that last name, he's more suited for Los Met's.
I hear Old Timers Day at Shea this year will just be a Split Squad Game
