MLB Discussion Thread
Couldn't find a discussion thread, didn't want to post in the EWN Fantasy League, so I created this space to talk about MLB, your favorite team, etc.
The Reds drastically need to mix up the lineup for a game or two. Yes, I know it is too early to panic, but we need a breath of fresh air. Here's how I'm dieing for Dusty to write the line-up today:
1 - Brandon Philips 2B (He's still a bit gimpy, but he's the best leadoff hitter on the team. Period.)
2 - Zack Cozart SS (He's the hottest man on the team right now.)
3 - Joey Votto 1B (Vottomatic! He's had a slow start, but he shows flashes of brilliance.)
4 - Ryan Ludwick RF (I wanted a righty between Votto and Bruce and Ludwick has been great so far. He is striking out every game so far, but who isn't on this team.)
5 - Jay Bruce LF (He hits for power, but still doesn't hit that well for average. Took him 5 or 6 games to get his first non-HR hit. Wow.)
6 - Todd Frazier 3B (He's back on the MLB roster, SIT ROLEN. He couldn't hit his way out of a wet, pre-ripped paper bag.)
7 - Chris Heisey CF (Stubbs is SHIT right now. Sit his ass.)
8 - Mat Latos P (I'm a believer in the 8-hole pitcher hitter. It only matters really when the 9-hole hitter starts an inning, but I love the idea of being able to get 3-on, no outs for your 3-hole hitter).
9 - Devin Mesoraco C (No problem with Hannigan, but his kid is fantastic. He's got a better bat and he's getting so much better as a defender.)
Reds fan huh? Make any lineup you want, you still won't be in the same league as the Cards.
haha only kidding man
How about my Royals!!!!! :)
Fun young club to watch, Hosmer and Moustakas have a chance to be special.

I guess I'll get this popular statement ball going...
I am a Red Sox fan. Shhh keep that quiet at the minute, otherwise Bobby Valentine might accuse me of not having the right attitude.
Ahhh, yeah, that's a big ol' mess right now, huh? Bobby V doesn't strike me as the kinda guy who can handle the NY/Philly/Boston media.

pujols who? I love seeing the cardinals continue to put up big runs against good teams. I know it's early, but not having pujols so far has only resulted in less double plays. I hope the cards can keep it up without him. with freese, Beltran, holliday, Berkman, and Molina at times, the long ball is still around
Those two are fun and great to watch. But, its been a rough start already. I am starting to turn into randy quaid(sp) from major league 2 movie.
