  1. Jeter's been on fire to start. He hit another HR tonight (albeit in a losing effort). Great to see him showing everyone that he still hasn't lost it. They were talking on ESPN during the game tonight about the problem the Yanks are gonna have when they're rotation gets healthy. Right now the rotation consists of: Sabathia Kuroda Nova Hughes Garcia The problem comes when Pineda comes off the DL (which they said could be within a month), and when(if?) Pettitte reaches game-shape and is ready to come up. In my opinion, they should pull Hughes and Garcia from the rotation, but then of course you have to decide whether they go to the bullpen or the minors (or in the case of Garcia designated for assignment). It's not a simple question, especially if they still see Hughes as a long-term starter. Thoughts?
  2. I don't know what to do with myself, I'm so excited! LET'S GO DEVILS!!
  3. Aweseome end to the season. So PUMPED for the playoffs!!
  4. Well done, Langs! He was always one of my favorite Devils when he was here. I still proudly where my Langenbrunner jersey to games.
  5. Pettitte totally came out of nowhere. It will be interesting to see what he has left in the tank.
  6. Same. Channel 73 also works (at least for me). Anyway, GO DEVILS!
  7. If they didn't feel he was going to be at least 90% and an improvement to the team, they probably wouldn't have even bothered to try and have him practice. This can only be good news, if you ask me.
  8. I will be in attendance! LET'S GO DEVILS!!!
  9. I like the idea of having extra teams in the playoffs, but the one-game playoff is just stupid. It's not fair to the "1st place" wildcard team. I would have like a 3-game series. Imagine the scenario (which will happen at some point) where a team finishes first for the wild card by 10 games over the next team, but then loses the one-game playoff on a fluky play (which I see as very likely, since baseball is easily the flukiest of the major sports). At least with a 3-game series, you can't making the argument for losing twice on a fluke.
  10. Yea, AJ Burnett's time with the Yankees could have been far worse. People just focus on him because of the contract and how often he shows signs of been unstoppable. He's certainly the most frustrating pitcher in baseball to watch LOL.
  11. I read the first article you posted (and I'll eventually get around to looking at the other ones). Honestly this section jumped out at me as having the most immediate impact on the game: It will certainly be interesting to see if the change from maple bats will have any significant effect on hitters.
  12. Honestly I didn't even know that the game was happening until after it was over, which is shame because I would have loved to watch. Next the US needs to learn how to win meaningful games.
  13. All this means is that we're getting healthy. Once we have our full troop of forwards, there really isn't a place for him.
  14. I'm ok with this trade. I don't think any of the players we traded will ammount to much, so the most valuable things we gave up were really the picks which are always a cr@pshoot. It's worth it in my opinion if Loou thinks Zidlicky will help win a cup.
  15. Good post. I agree with just about everything you said. I was unaware of the changes to the draft system, but that does sound like something pretty weird for them to do... What are the exact rules?
  16. Well, pitchers and catchers report today, and the Mets thread has already started, so it's time for a new Yankees thread. Let's kick it off with some news just going down today: Yanks agree to deal with Ibanez It's been rumored for a while, and I personally don't mind it. We need someone to fill the DH roll with Jorge retiring and Montero being traded, and if he sucks we didn't invest much at all in him. I see it as a very low risk/high reward type of signing. Here's to another great season, with hopefully another Division title and most importantly of all a World Championship!

    Langs was one of my favorite Devils when he played here. I will never boo him.
  18. The emotional roller coaster that was this Giants season ends on an upswing in one of the best (or at least the most interesting) endings to a football game I have ever seen. A sweet day indeed.
  19. Very good read. People (namely non-Devils fans) never realize just how important Patty is to the Devils.
  20. No, Adam Dunn had one of the worst seasons in baseball history last year, and it would even be that effective of a salary dump, as Dunn makes over $10 mil. Plus, unless I'm mistaken, I think this is Burnett's last year of his contract, no?

    Did Gomez score ?

    That was beautiful.
