For not providing analysis that will take your breath away

For not giving you my input on what I feel about the transactions, the games, and the specialties

2. I will…

1.Early Division Predictions: AL East– December 19, 2008

I loved making the predictions and the 1 thing that made this post the best is that it was my 1st True Post.

 Welcome, manoman! As a Yankee fan I LOVE your prediction. I still think we need another bat, but we certainly upgraded the rotation and the pen is looking good.

 Statistics Study Guide ...

  • 45 entries

Well, yeah, those are the stats.


Player- Evan Longoria

Team- 70% Yankees 30% Rays

Blog- They all are awesome! Some of my favorites are Julia’s, Cheeky’s, and Zack Hample’s.


Ok, so now I want to go fire up the PS3 and get my MLB:The Show on! There, my Rays are in first, blowing away the competition. Wish it was like that in real life! You are right in calling Howell “lights out.” The guy has been perfect since the break, racking up 3 saves already!I’m going to have to drop Percy in my game and get Howell in there as my closer!
