Well, in that case, I guess I'm going to have to stand up for my Yankees. Last year's choke job against Boston was one for the ages, but they still were (and are) a better team overall than Boston. Their one weakness last year, pitching, is now a great strength. Boston's pitching is too full of question marks this year. Plus, Tino Martinez is back in pinstripes, and that ends the argument right there.

WOOOOOO! Finally for the first time i am not gonna have to stay up till 4AM To see My Redbirds in action.

Devout Cardinals fan.. when i am in the country i attend every game possible. Saw the awesome Braves - Cards series couple of years ago with the unassisted Triple. Great game.

Anywho, I'll be rooting for the Cards. And then whoever the Giants, Cubs & Yankees are playing against.  ;D And when those teams play each other.. we'll i'll be rooting for lighting.

Way before my Colorado Rockies were born ('93) I loved The Cardinals, Blaine also loved them so it's been easy for me to include them at or near the top of my favourites :)

No offense Charlie_D, but I wish "Pay-Rod" would come clean about his gaffe in the ALCS last year, when he knocked the ball out of a Red Sox players glove and then thought nobody would notice...then to complain about it being a bad call ::) I respect Jeter though, great player :)

Of the Yankees roster there are only about 5 i have any time for whatsoever..

Tony Womack
Jason Giambi
Derek Jeeter
Hideki Matsui
and finally i think Sheffield is a good player.

I don't know too much about there pitching staff to be honest.

But yeah.. i have no time for A-Rod.

He, Chipper Jones, Barry Bonds (satan) and Sammy 'no skill' Sosa make up my most disliked player list.

No...I've always arrived before the game starts to avoid the congestion. And we'd normally leave during the 9th inning or right when the game was over. Once there was a game that ran 12 innings but we left during the 10th or 11th since it was getting late. Usually when we've left early, it's never before the 9th inning. Of course, I haven't been to a game since 1996 (when they beat the Braves).

He belted in the tying run in the 9th inning of Game Seven of the '01 Series off Mariano. The next batter was hit, and that loaded the bases. Gonzo hit a bloop single which scored the winning run.

I watched it on ESPN Classic in March 2003. (I also watched it live, 16 months earlier. I'll never forget that.) :) As I recall, every batter that Mariano faced got on base. He only managed to get one out, and that was a force out at third.

What do you have against the Braves? they don't go out and buy their division titles like the yankees, They picked up Mike Hampton and Jaret Wright when nobody wanted them and other then Chipper (home grown product) they don't have any real superstars, Their big moves this year were signing Tim Hudson, Brian Jordan and Raul Mondesi, all three of these players seem to me to be a bit risky. John Smoltze will be starting again and he wore his arm out in the pen the last few years so we will see if he can pitch effective all season. Now a team that I see cry year in and year out are the Cubs, their one time excuse for not winning was we play all these day games and it takes it's toll on us...well you have lights now so that excuse is gone. The fans to me are second worse only to Philly fans, throwing homerun balls back onto the field, the fan that does this should be thrown out of the stadium. Lets not forget the poor guy who caught the ball in the stands and cost the Cubs a shot at the world series, any person in his place would of done the same, the ball was out of play, it was in the stands...but Cubs fans blamed him for not going to the series. So as long as the Braves keep winning I really don't care what any other team does, I put up with losing season's from the late 70s until 1990 so it's really nice that they are winning now and it just goes to show people hate a winning team, no matter how they go about achieving their wins

with all do respect, I've never liked them...from the Bobby Cox incident with his wife...though unproved it was reported by her. But that's not the whole thing. ESPN did a special on the Braves and the "Strike Zone" that was usually called for Atlanta pitchers at home...they showed the same pitches by opposing pitchers being called balls while Braves pithchers' were called strikes. Javier Lopez about popped a blood vessel complaining that the show was unfair and that it was all false. He was a huge whiner about it. If it makes any difference I don't like the Twins, Reds or Giants either. However I do respect that you like Atlanta. Just my opinion, that's all. Hey, I really can't say too much because my Rockies haven't had much success :-\\

have you noticed how patriotic it looks when we quote each other?  ;D I dislike the Yankees, Cubs, Phillys and Mets, I used to hate the Dodgers when the Braves were in the west, remember when the Marlins beat the Braves to go to the series and Eric Greg's one sided strike zone was as wide as his A$$ for the Marlins, most umpires give pitchers the pitches off the plate if they can hit the spot over and over, Randy Johnson, Curt Shilling, Roger Clemons and others get this benefit, it just happened that in the 90s the Braves could run 4 pitchers at you who had this type of control

I have hated teams in every sports as well,  In football I hate Miami, I was always a Colts fan and it always seemed like Miami would get all the calls, In basketball it's the hated Lakers, to me it seems like they were allowed to bend rules and stock pile talent that would put any other team over the cap and the 80s rivalry with the Celtics; in hockey it's the Flyers, I'm a penguin fan (enough said), In baseball it's the Yankees, they just go out and buy all they need and have been doing this since way back in the days of Babe Ruth

BUT that was last year......the past.

The Yankees need to get their @#$%! together, A-ROD needs to go seriously, I hate that guy. I'm really looking forward to this season, not only because of the Yanks. I want to see what happens to The Mets now that they have P.MArtinez on their team.

Written By: Alchoholica on 03/05/05 at 3:41 am

I was on dream street when the Red Sox beat the Yankees.. and then the thought suddenly appeared.. Oh crap they're gonna beat us now.

It's tough, as a Redbird obviously i had to support the Cardinals, however every bit of Ireland in me was thinking.. ahh for sure it wouldn't hurt to let em have one every 100 years.  ;D

Thing is, the Red Sox look real strong again, i can see it coming down to the Red Sox, The Cardinals, The Yankees and Dodgers. I have no idea why i think the Dodgers will do so well, but i just have a feeling. They are a technically solid team with a couple of outstanding players when it comes to both Offense & Defence.

Plus people.. two words Eric Gange.

La Russa & Jocketty (i say both because although Jocketty essentially has the power, he aint dumb he listens to everything Tony has to say) they have improved the team somewhat although we are really gonna hurt without Edgar, the whole pace of our game will have to change. It's a damn shame he left. I am still somewhat concerend about the pitching staff (or as i prefer to call them the fire brigade). However, we have enough superb offensive and defensive players that unless something bad happens, or like last year 2 bad things happen (Pujols & Rolen both playing hurt, yes they were both injured and still THAT DAMN GOOD!) then i think we could take the series. There is no doubt in my mind that we will beat the Cubbies (yuck) and the Astros (ha!) to the Division Title. I can also see no reason why we shouldn't be NL Champions again, after all the only teams i think should be feared are The Dodgers & The Giants. The Braves are good, but we finally dispatched them as our bogey team a couple years ago. Who's gonna stop us.. CHIIIIIPPER CHIIIIIPPER CHIIIIIPPER. I think not  ;D

A closer is never going to be the difference in a team, sure he can win you close games but you have to go into the 9th with the lead, one reason he had so many saves is because the Dodgers have a weak offense and many of the games were close... I look for Chipper to have another good season, last year he was fighting injuries all season and it was a great move to put him back at 3rd, with him at 3rd this season he should remain injury free

On very rare occasions, the Dodgers have failed to preserve their lead with Eric Gagne trying to close it out. Last July, his streak of 84 consecutive saves came to an end as the D'backs tied it up in the 9th inning; the Dodgers still squeezed out a win. But you're right, he is really good about preserving the lead. He went through the 2003 season without a blown save; gotta love that. 8)

I'm happy to see someone else feel that way! He had WAY less at bats than Hammerin' Hank and played in less games. Steroid Barry is kinda like the overated Emmitt Smith...let's play until we're 50 and we'll break a record :D Walter Payton was and always will be the best in my book.

The ONLY defense I give Big Mac is that Creatine wasn't a banned substance or even an illegal drug. As for Steroid Barry...not only is he a self absorbed @sshole but he could at least say he was drugged and accuse the guy that laced his food...he just denies everything though. Yeah, in a perfect world Albert would have at least one MVP award, Roger Maris would still hold the single season HR record Babe Ruth would still hold the career record for HRs AND Walter Payton would still be the NFL's All-Time leading rusher :)

Well, from what I had heard, the Mets were in need of a starting pitcher (a lefty), so they sent Kazahisu Ishii over there. He did pretty well in his three years with my Dodgers, though.

I agree with you about LoDuca. That trade also involved Juan Encarnacion, who was just with the Marlins nine months earlier when his team won the World Series. ::)

I was watching the Dodgers/D'backs game earlier; L.A. had taken a 4-1 lead in the 5th (?), but the D'backs tied it up in the 7th and Troy Glaus hit a three-run homer in the 8th, so I lost track after that. :-\\ My guess is that my team lost.

It's funny--I generally don't get into baseball on TV but I really enjoy going to ballgames. About 5 or 6 years ago they built a beautiful new ballpark in my hometown of Lincoln, NE. I used to go to Saltdogs (Northern League) and Husker baseball games all the time. I'm thinking about roadtripping to St. Louis some weekend and catching a Cards game.

By the way, the Dodgers beat the D'backs last nite in 11 innings by a score of 12-10. :) It was 8-7 going to the bottom of the 9th, but interim closer Yhency Brazoban couldn't hold the lead...he even got the bases loaded at one point, but escaped. In the top of the 11th, the Dodgers got four runs to lead 12-8, but that lead was cut in half in the bottom of the 11th. A double play ended it. So the Dodgers' record is now 4-1. :D

Yeah they did.  I think in the last 5 games or something like that the Braves bullpen has given up 17 runs or so.  That keeps up the Braves will not have a chance at a 14th straight division title and instead will be fighting out for the cellar position in the NL East.  Something has to be done about that bullpen and soon, letting Tom Martin go was a start but there needs to be a lot more done.

The Cardinals won again last night, taking the streak to 4. It was an emphatic 11-1 victory with Marc Mulder showing why he was bought over to the NL.

The Cardinals are now the 3rd best performing team in the country, with The White Sox & Dodgers above them.

L.A Are a big threat, they appear to have found an offense and have always been good defensivley.

It will be interesting to see who the biggest threat for the NL is, The Braves or The Dodgers.

The Cardinals face The Astros tonight with Brandon Duckworth faceing off against Jason Marquis.

Duckworth had an awful outing a few days ago and will want to get over that, whilst Marquis had been pretty solid so far.

Should be interesting to see what Jimmy Edmonds does, He is 2 for 4 with 4 walks against Duckworth and has been on fire recently.

Maybe not, Colorado may sweep them.  Colorado has already surprised me by (unless a miracle happens) winning today.  You said to Nally a few days ago to go ahead and put three more wins in the Dodger's column because they were going to play Colorado, and that just wasn't the case now was it?

We were watching the Mets and the Nationals last night. Joey Eischen, the relief pitcher, broke his arm. He caught the ball, and came down-right on his arm. I thought that he broke his wrist from the way he landed but I found out today that it was his arm. That is such a shame. We don't like to see players hurt (unless it is John Rocker or Roger Clemants-but that is a different story).

The result of the game-the Mets won. But, like I said, we are sorry that Eischen broke his arm.

The last time anybody made a comeback like this was the Pirates in 2001. They scored i think 6 or 7 against the Astros in the 9th that night.

Actually you might wont to check those standings again.

Braves currently have the best record in the NL.  Also the Eastern Division is the strongest Division in the NL right now with 4 teams over .500 (only 5 teams in division).  The weakest Division in the NL right now is actually the NL Central were only the Cardinals are over .500.  Plus just about a week ago didn't the Braves just take 2 out of 3 from the Cardinals.  Braves are 13-3 in their last 16 games, just sweeping the Astros in 4 games outscoring them 38-8 in that series.  Cardinals are 4-6 in their last 10 games.

Though to GWBush2004, it is WAY to early to be calling 14th straight division titles as we are only in the second month of the season and Braves only have a 1.5 game lead, long way to go.  To RockandRollFan, you are right Atlanta Braves fans do brag a lot about winning 13 straight division championships, but the reason for that is not because they have only won one World Series title it is because no other team in sports history has come even close to that mark.  I consider myself a Braves fan (if you couldn't tell already) but I don't brag (especially this early in the season) and it bugs me when people do brag about things like that.  And no I am not bragging above that was just stating current facts, standings and teams play can always change just takes one major injury to turn things upside down.

LMAO! You are kidding right. Much as i don't like them The Astros are a damn good team, the Cubs have there days as well.
The Brewers usually pull some shocks out as well.

Over in the East the Braves are unopposed. They are indeed a good team but It's a weak division. The Marlins are not consistent, The Mets go from winning 10 on the trot to losing 20...

The Braves will win in the East, the Cardinals will win in the Central. I still think that the Dodgers will win over in the West, but personally i think they'll have a much tougher time than the Braves or the Cards.

The Wildcard.. The Giants or the Marlins i think. If either of them could put together a good run of form out of there division then they would do well.

the only TBS announcer that I like is Skip Carey, I liked Ernie Johnson before he retired, Joe Simpson is OK if they team him with Skip, Pete Van Wieren is pure annoying i hated how he almost had an orgasm when the network finally let him bad mouth John Rocker (who I like by the way, he's from Statesboro Georgia about 40 miles from where I live) and Don Sutton the robot, even his laugh is programmed... each game Don has to say "not every out is made on a good pitch and not every hit is made on a bad pitch" and he must mention Walter Austin at least two times a game, this might sound novel but how about hiring some ex-braves as announcers? The addition of Ron Gant on Friday extra was a good move, he was an ex-brave, then there is Chip Carey, we had him on the staff early in his career before he moved on to Seattle and then Chicago, I don't see how someone can change team loyalties (OK the paycheck) but I listened to him do a few Cubs games in the past, it was pure sickening hearing how a homerun travels so many "happy feet" at least that phrase isn't used in Atlanta, so far they have been teaming Chip with Skip so it's been OK... Then there are the TBS commercials for braves baseball, one that really sucks is these two Astros fans acting like bees, hey TBS, this is Atlanta not Houston so can the astro fans and any other non brave fan, another commercial I hate is the one with Chipper telling how he learned to switch hit watching dodgers growing up... find a braves fan not a dodger fan   ::)

Last night in the 8th inning, Jeff Weaver was one strike away from ending the top of the inning, when Adam LaRoche hit a grand slam off him to give the Braves a 4-2 lead; it took two relievers (Kelly Wunsch and Giovanni Carrara) to stop the madness. In the bottom of the 8th, Dodgers got their revenge when Milton Bradley hit a grand slam to give the Dodgers their lead back; they added one more and won it, 7-4. :)

The guy clearly went out of his way to try and knock over our second baseman.  He clearly wasn't aiming for the bag.  The umpire made the correct call.

That makes no difference it states in the role book that of a player sliding to disrupt a double play cannot reach over and touch the base then he is out, and clearly in that replay he could not reach the base therefore he was out and the correct call was made.

;D Well, I'm a Cardinals fan before being a Cubs fan ;)

I kinda like the Cubs too...I've been cheering for them lately cause I want them to win more, and the more they win, the better their chances will be for getting into the postseason; and when they do make it there, hopefully they won't screw up like they did 2 years ago. I mean, it's been 60 years since they last reached the WS, and 97 since they last won one.

The Dodgers have a "winning streak" for the first time in at least a couple weeks. Last night they beat the Deebacks in Arizona by a score of 7-4.

And the Angels were hosting the worst team in the majors...the Kansas City Royals. The Royals were leading for most of the game, and the score was 8-3 in their favor in the top of the 9th inning. So it looked like they were gonna win it. But in the bottom of the 9th, the Angels rallied from a 5-run deficit and tied it up; what's more, they got all 5 runs with nobody out! They scored the winning run in the 10th inning and won their game, 9-8. :D

This is true.

Normally such an item would have people lined up around Safeco waiting for the doors to open to get their hands on them.  Also, within 20 minutes of opening the doors, they all would have been distributed.

Not this time, maybe it is a combination of the Mariners having a crummy season, it was a rainy night, people think Buhner is a redneck, or whatever, but they were still passing out the Buhner statues after the game had started.

Ryan Franklin gives up five runs in the first to the Blue Jays.  Vernon Wells hits two home runs.  Franklin is thrown out of the game for hitting a pitcher before he could be pulled.  Blue Jays build lead to 9-2.  Mariners pull starters Beltre, Sexon and Boone right after.  Bench players rally the team to make it close, but lose 9-7.

Today they begin a series against the Detroit Tigers...whom they swept in Detroit two years ago. As I recall, the Tigers lost 119 games that year. This year, however, they're not doing too badly.

Angels travel to Atlanta to play the Braves for the first time ever...you know who I'll be rooting for.

;)Colorado gets the White Sox for the next 3 at Coors Field....and then Detroit comes to town. What I like to remember about the Tigers best is the 1984 season which they started 35-5 on the way to a World Series win. Back then I was into Magnum PI and they were his favorite team :D

I would love to see my Vikings playing outdoors again! The only problem with that is they would never have a chance at having the opportunity of hosting a Superbowl. And as we all know, THAT is where the real money is at!

Plus, what free agent in his right mind would ever think about going to a team that has to play in sub zero temperatures? The reality is that most of todays NFL stars (and fans)  cannot hold a candle to the players (and fans)  of yesteryear. Now a stadium with a retractable roof, that's a different story.

I know your Rockies lost again...this year Zella's favorite team doesn't play mine, so we won't be facing each other. ;) Two years ago we swept the season in Cleveland...so if the Dodgers played in Cleveland then, the Indians would probably come to Dodger Stadium in 2007.

After two hours of lame bloopers (Dick Clark gets paid for this Sh*t? ??? ) they finaly start the game and it was one of them nights the Braves were pretty much out of the game from the first inning on... OK Mark I know how you hate them being called America's team so I'll just refer to them as "God's team" from now on (relax, I kid  :D ) I sat threw the whole boring game, and the Braves lost 6 - 2 if I remember right.

PS: I had the volumn down while bloopers were on and was reading the boards and listening to CDs

Yeah the Cubs did.  The Braves scored 6 runs in the bottom of the 8th to win 9-4 thanks to a 2 run homer by Andruw Jones (his major league leading 27th of the year) and a 3 run homer by Jeff Francour (sp?), his first career major league homer.

The Nationals lost last night, so the Braves are only 1.5 games out from first place.

Now excuse me while I rant:

The Braves were 2.5 games behind the Nationals a week ago, and the Nationals have lost four in a row.  If you told me a week ago that the Nationals were going to lose four in a row, I would have said I'm glad the Braves will be in first place.  Instead we lose three and the Nationals lose three so we break even, but we did gain one game last night.

Good way to blow your chance, Braves.

Cards completed there sweep of the Astro's yesterday.

The NL Central now looks like this. . .

Central    W  L    PCT    GB
  St. Louis   59 32 .648   -
  Chicago 46    45 .505 13.0
  Milwaukee    45    47      .489 14.5
  Houston 44    46 .489 14.5
  Pittsburgh 40    51 .440 19.0
  Cincinnati   38 53 .418   21.0

Now, at the start of the year i said the Cards would take the division by 15 games over everybody. I'm sticking by that, but i also think that there is a serious possibility of a 20 game cushion. I wouldn't put money on it but again, it wouldn't shock me. Remembering last years second half of the season  ;D

What's more, Derek Lowe wins for the first time since June 6 against the Tigers to improve to 6-10; he also got a base hit during the game and later scored. 8)

So you want them to "beat the Mets"? (In case you didn't know, "Beat the Mets!" was a popular chant uttered by Dodger fans during the 1988 postseason; that year, the Dodgers only beat 'em once during the regular season (and it was in New York where they did so), and both teams finished first in their respective divisions, so they faced each other in the LCS, and the chanting at Dodger Stadium got gradually louder and faster as the series went on to a game 7, which L.A. won.)

This is the ONE! Thing i have to laugh at in Baseball.. the songs & chants are just awful.

Personally, i think Baseball could be improved with more origional fan oriented songs.

In your L.A slums, your L.A slums, there's pi-ss on the floor and sh-i-t in the street, you find a deag dog and you think it's a treat, in your l.A slums.
In your L.A Slums, your L.A slums, your mom's on the game and your dad's in the nick, you can't get a job 'cus your so F'ing thick, in your L.A slums!

Now wouldn't that make the game better?

To be honest, i'm glad they stuck Scotty back on the DL. He was a shadow of himself, if they had stuck him down in the minors for a while he wouldn't have re-injured his shoulder, but still, he wasn't even batting .100.

Fact is, the Cardinals offence still hasn't really kicked off big time yet. Edmonds isn't having an amazing year, Rolen has been non-existent, Eckstein has been consistent but nothing amazing, Grudzielanek is good, but again, not a big power hitter. Walker has been hurt and Sanders is out..

Albert however is once again on course for an MVP Year. Derek Lee my a-ss! Yeah, Lee is having a career year, Pujols trails him by slim margains in all areas, but Pujols play like this EVERY year, Lee will never ever play like this again.

Well...in my first trip to Dodger Stadium in 9 years, I gotta say that I enjoyed the game overall. :) The first two innings were exciting as the Dodgers jumped out to an early 3-0 lead.  In the first inning, the first run, which was unearned, was scored by Oscar Robles, who reached on an error by the shortstop. And then the next runner reached on an error by the pitcher (ex-Angel Ramon Ortiz), and then Olmedo Saenz hit a home run to left field. And we scored again in the 4th inning. I missed the 4th and 5th innings because I was standing in line, getting food. I didn't really miss Ken Griffey's home run,either. ::) In the 7th, things started to get ugly as the Reds took a 6-4 lead. Starting pitcher Jeff Weaver, who was responsible for all 6 Cincinnati runs, was taken out of the game with 2 out in the 7th and Wilson Alvarez (the only left-handed reliever) was brought in. Dodgers tied it back up in the bottom of the 7th and had a chance to get ahead with Milton Bradley on 3rd, but couldn't cash him in. After that we left the stadium and listened to the rest of the game on the radio. It remained tied at 6 until the top of the 9th, when Yhency Brazoban walked ____ Freel, who went on to steal second and third and then score on a fly to deep center field. Freel stole 5 bases last night! And the Dodgers were retired in the bottom of the 9th, so we lost. :-[

Yesterday was NOT a good day for my local teams, as the Angels failed to preserve a win in the Bronx, and the Cardinals had a good time at Dodger Stadium. In New York, the Angels had a 7-5 lead on the Wankees as K-Rod (who obviously wasn't his usual self yesterday) came on to pitch the 9th. He walked FOUR batters, threw a wild pitch, and then Hid!ckhead Matstupid* hit a two-run double to score the winning run. >:( In L.A., the Cardinals handed Derek Lowe his 11th loss of the season, winning 9-4. ::)

Today, the Angels and Yankes were going into extra innings with the game tied at 6, and the Dodgers and Cardinals were scoreless in the second.

There's a change at the top of the rankings. The Cardinals have showed me enough to be the No. 1 team. The St. Louis pitching staff has performed above and beyond any expectations that I had for them at the beginning of the year.

This is the first rankings since Rafael Palmeiro tested positive for steroids. You know that baseball will bounce back – it always does – but this will taint the sport for years to come. Palmeiro was a baseball icon and it's a shame that his reputation will be scarred forever.

THE TOP 10
(Statistics and records are through August 7)

http://us.i1.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/i/us/sp/v/mlb/teams/1/50x50c/stl_2.gif 1. St. Louis Cardinals (70-41) – They played well against the Braves this weekend, coming from behind on Sunday for the victory and taking two of three from Atlanta. St. Louis is a lock for the playoffs and probably a lock to get to the NLCS, where it'll have to face the Braves. If healthy, the Cardinals are unstoppable.

http://us.i1.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/i/us/sp/v/mlb/teams/1/50x50c/chw.gif 2. Chicago White Sox (72-38) – The best team in the AL, the Sox are headed for a first-round showdown with the AL wild-card winner, which could be the A's. Problem is, the White Sox don't play well against Oakland, which has won seven of the teams' nine meetings this season.

http://us.i1.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/i/us/sp/v/mlb/teams/1/50x50c/bos.gif 3. Boston Red Sox (63-47) – They have the best offense in the AL with a majors-leading .282 average and 609 runs scored. They are leading the best division in the majors, too.

http://us.i1.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/i/us/sp/v/mlb/teams/1/50x50c/atl.gif 4. Atlanta Braves (64-48) – They're led by Andruw Jones, a solid MVP candidate who ranks among the NL leaders in almost every offensive category. Jones also could win a Gold Glove for his work in center field. Atlanta plays its best ball at home (35-15).

http://us.i1.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/i/us/sp/v/mlb/teams/1/50x50c/ana.gif 5. Los Angeles Angels (64-47) – The Angels will have their hands full with the A's going into Tuesday's opener of a crucial three-game set in Oakland. L.A. will be pushed for the rest of the season by the A's and will have to rely on a pitching staff that ranks second in the AL in team ERA (3.69).

http://us.i1.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/i/us/sp/v/mlb/teams/1/50x50c/oak.gif 6. Oakland Athletics (64-47) – I had to put them directly behind the Angels, even though both teams are tied for the AL West lead. The A's have surprised me this year and they are the hottest team in the majors.

http://us.i1.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/i/us/sp/v/mlb/teams/1/50x50c/nyy.gif 7. New York Yankees (59-50) – They have their work cut out for them. They're 3½ games behind Boston in the AL East and four games out of the wild-card lead behind the A's and Angels. The Yanks will be in trouble if Randy Johnson's bad back keeps him out.

http://us.i1.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/i/us/sp/v/mlb/teams/1/50x50c/hou.gif 8. Houston Astros (60-51) – Another team that is hot as can be. The Astros have great pitching (3.52 team ERA), but their offense is anemic at times.

http://us.i1.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/i/us/sp/v/mlb/teams/1/50x50c/cle.gif 9. Cleveland Indians (60-52) – I think they're a long shot to make the playoffs (4½ games behind in the AL wild-card race), but I just don't think they have the experience to be strong during a playoff race.

http://us.i1.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/i/us/sp/v/mlb/teams/1/50x50c/fla.gif 10. Florida Marlins (57-53) – They're another team that is a long shot for the playoffs, but they're led by an NL-leading .278 batting average. Florida has a true superstar in Miguel Cabrera (.352, 25 home runs, 81 RBIs).

ON THE RISE

http://us.i1.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/i/us/sp/v/mlb/teams/1/50x50c/phi.gif Philadelphia Phillies (58-54) – The Phils are 2½ games out of the NL wild-card lead. If they can get healthy, look out.

ON THE DECLINE

http://us.i1.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/i/us/sp/v/mlb/teams/1/50x50c/was.gif Washington Nationals (58-53) – They're 6-17 since the All-Star break, and now there's talk of replacing Jim Bowden and moving Frank Robinson to general manager – What?

THE BOTTOM FIVE

http://us.i1.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/i/us/sp/v/mlb/teams/1/50x50c/pit.gif 26. Pittsburgh Pirates (47-65) – Things might be looking up with rookie phenom Zach Duke (5-0, 1.54) in the mix.

http://us.i1.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/i/us/sp/v/mlb/teams/1/50x50c/sfo.gif 27. San Francisco Giants (48-62) – Things aren't looking too good in S.F. … and they'll be a year older next year.

http://us.i1.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/i/us/sp/v/mlb/teams/1/50x50c/tam.gif 28. Tampa Bay Devil Rays (43-69) – The good news: They're 7-3 in their last 10 games. The bad news: They're still 21 games behind Boston in the AL East.

http://us.i1.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/i/us/sp/v/mlb/teams/1/50x50c/kan.gif 29. Kansas City Royals (38-73) – They're on a 10-game losing streak after being swept by the A's over the weekend. Ouch.

http://us.i1.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/i/us/sp/v/mlb/teams/1/50x50c/col.gif 30. Colorado Rockies (42-69) – They're the worst team in the NL, and their payroll will be reduced in 2006. Not good.

With the win yesterday Colorado moved 5 and a half ahead of KC who has the worst record and also are ahead of Tampa Bay. They've also closed the gap on the Pirates and Giants trying to climb out of worst in the NL. Not too bad for a young team with basically 1 seasoned veteran (Todd Helton) and all the injuries they've suffered, including possible rookie of the year Clint Barmes who was leading the league in batting average when he went down. I'm still holding hope that they can catch anyone in the NL and make all the people who picked them to finish last as well as worse in the majors, eat a big sh*tburger. At least they're on thier way to putting one to rest as they've passed Tampa and KC....so far :) Oh yeah, and then there's the Cardinals, my other team, doing great and the Indians and Red Sox are doing well as well :)

Ryne doesn't rank soley based on records (that's why the Cardinals are number one on the list.)  But I still would have put Colorado above Kansas City.  The only reason I can see why he did that is because the Royals, as bad as they are, get good crowds of people for their home games, meaning more money for better players.  Colorado's crowds are the second worst, next to only Tampa Bay.

When's the last time the White Sox won the Series??  Hey, I just want to back up Dagny here :) Also, up until last year the same could've been said about Boston fans being in their own little world. I mean, who ever thought they'd come back from 3-0 against the Yanks :o :D ;)

Last time the White Sox won the WS was in 1917...88 years ago. They last made it to the WS in 1959, when they lost to the Dodgers.

Andy: I wanna see the Cubbies win because it's been 60 years since they last made it to the WS and 97 years since they last won one. If I have to wait until 2006 to see them do well again, so be it.

I don't think it would. But youre entitled to your own opinion; I won't argue with you. But I still am tired of the same teams dominating year after year, especially the Braves and Yankes. If they should happen to face e.o. in a WS again, I would want the Braves to win, but I wouldn't watch it.

Cardinals - White Sox  ;)

The world series is the thing that annoys me most about Baseball. For instance, last year, the St Louis Cardinals were the best team in Baseball. Over the whole year they had a better record than every single other team. However, because they lose a short series (and anybody can win or lose a short series) to the Boston Red Sox, who had a much worse record. The Red Sox become the best team.

Now those two teams I wouldn't mind seeing play e.o. I'm pretty much comfortable with anyone just as long as it isn't the Braves and Yankes together. I do have reservations on maybe 1 or 2 other teams though.

Well, the Cardinals will make it. If, somehow or the other the Braves can manage to beat the Cardinals (which is always possible, but remember it will be a full strength St Louis side come October) then they will win the World Series. The White Sox play good ball, but look at there record against specific sides. They have BIG weaknesses. All it takes is a good team with a good manager to exploit these weaknesses.

Next year will definatley be a Cardinals year. With the new stadium having been built the Owners are going to seriously open up the checkbook. I dare say that there will be a couple of big name guys come in.

If you look at the team now you figure that of the First Team Starters, Walker is going. Unless he can get a Contract as a DL somewhere, he won't be playing baseball next year. Matt Morris, wants some stupid amount of money.. no thanks chump, we have Farm Players.

First Base is covered, Albert Pujols is the best First Baseman in Baseball, nay, the best Player in Baseball. Third base is covered by a man who (if he stays fit) could well go down as one of, if not the, best Third Baseman ever. The pitching staff is good, I'd like to see them lose Marquis and pick up somebody like Beckett. But i can't see that happening.

I like David Eckstein at shortstop, now.. if Tejada piped up and said, i'll join the Cardinals, it would be bye bye David, but at the moment, i think he is one of the better Shortstops in the National League.

Mark Grudzielanek on second base worrys me. He is a fairly consistent player but nothing amazing. He is incredibly erratic at Bat. Somebody like Luis Castillo would work well for the Cardinals. He isn't a big hitter at all, but has a great on base percentage, have him and David Eckstein getting on base and then have Pujols come up.. your looking at almost guarenteed runs.

The outfield is the location of some big worrys for the Cards. Left Field.. what Left Field.

There are a bunch of very good players chomping at the bit. So Taguchi, John Mabry and John Rodriguez, but these are not Championship winning guys. Great in a pinch Hitting role (which Tony La Russa like to do, but they are bench guys. Great bench guys, but bench guys none the less.)

Jim Edmonds is THE Centre Fielder. There aren't many better players than him. However over in right field.. Sanders (injured right now) just isn't quite the man for the job.

With the payroll option that the Owners are talking about, names such as Guerrero and Cabrerra have been flying around, and you know.. That's a Championship in the bag. ;D

in other words, do it the Yankee way, buy yourself a pennant, this is one reason the yankees are so hated, look at the team the Braves put on the field, it's mostly home grown and they don't spend a lot buying big name free agents, I don't know why the cardinals are so well loved, if you look back at their history they are basically the yankees of the national league, buying themselves many world series titles, baseball has a bad history of this sort of thing, the teams with the money have always won through out history... There is a guy in Atlanta named Andruw Jones who will be winning the gold glove in center field and he's a home grown product and if Jeff Francoeur keeps up his play he will be the rookie of the year. Come october the Braves should be healthy too, Chipper, Hampton and Thompson should be back in the line up... another thing i notice that people have "other favourite teams" when their shitty team is having a good season they don't have an other favourite team, come on people root for one team, in good and bad times, i was a Braves fan in the 80s i didn't use the other favourite team excuse   :D

Hey, i've been a Cardinals fan my whole life.. and in that time, have a guess at how many times they have won a Championship?

Remember the late 90's Cards.. ugh..

I agree, they do sometimes use some Financial Muscle to get what they want.. but they are nowhere near as bad as the Yankees.

Cardinals team come October will be a lot stronger than the current one. Molina will be back. Sanders will be back. Walker could probably come back now, but they don't wanna risk him. He can take a couple of cortizone shots and play the post season fine. Rolen.. might.. be back. If it's the half assed Scott Rolen that came back a few weeks ago, then IMO they can just leave him to rest up until next year. If it's the real Scott Rolen, then get ready for a fight.  ;)

Fair enough. I'll give you that one.

When i was in Kansas City a couple years ago i went to a Royals game. I'm not a fan of the Royals, but i'm a baseball fan. If i lived in Chicago, i'd go to White Sox games. If i lived in New York, i'd go to Mets games. If i lived in Colorado, i'd go to Rockies games.

That's cool but as we both speak the Cubbies crushed our Cardinals 11-4 last night AND my Rockies lost again to Pittsburgh, 11-3 ::)

11-4 is acceptable. I only consider a defeat humiliating when it's by 10 or more runs. Of course being beaten by the Cu**s is pretty bad.

The Cards will win the series, but of course what's funny is even if the Cu**s can sweep the Cards.. they'll still be 15 games back!!!

;D

Oh, by the way, remember how i said Derek Lee was going to slump.. Ahem.. apart from beating up on Mark Mulder (who sucks bad enough to be a Cu**) He hasn't done much of anything. Triple Crown my a double s! Bring on Albert!

And what's up with Dan Kolb?  He was pitching horrible but has been scoreless 6 out of his 7 last appearences and came in the on the night we lost to the Dodgers 6-4 came in with the bases loaded and no outs and didn't give up a single run.

Well, the Cardinals lost today.. it looked like they were going to pull it back and then they fell apart and allowed the Deebacks to stick 5 more runs in. Ouch.

But it is now official, even after that loss, the St Louis Cardinals are the best team in Baseball.

They have a record of 76 and 45 playing .628 ball. Whilst the Chicago White Sox have a record of 74 and 44 and are playing .627 ball. This will change when the White Sox play there extra games. Unless of course they lose a few more.

The Cardinals now lead Houstin by 12.0 games and the Cu**s by 17.0 games. The Flubs have dropped to 4th in the NL Central as well.

In other good news the A's still lead the Yankees by a game and a half in the AL Wild Card. The Kansas City Royals are still on course to break the modern record for most consecutive losses and Philedelphia managed to creep a half game ahead of The Astro's. I'd much rather have Philedelphia with there avaerage pitching staff in the playoffs than the Astro's with there Kickas*! Pitching staff.

Short series's favour good pitching.. who wants to face Clemens, Oswalt and Pettiete. With Lidge in the wings. The Nationals could leapfrog both the Stro's and Phillies.. which would be nice.

At the start of the year i said St Louis would win by 15 and so Would the White Sox. 1 out of 2 ain't bad. The White Sox haven't been as dominant recently and are 4 win down on the Cards.

Unless the Astro's start getting some SERIOUS run support for the pitching staff, they will fall to 15 behind.

Sorry to hear that Jeff, I thought my Rockies lost but they actually beat the Cubs to win the series 2-1 by a 9-7 score :D

DENVER -- The Colorado Rockies and Chicago Cubs played a classic Coors Field game.

Matt Holliday and Dustan Mohr hit two-run homers, leading the Rockies over the Cubs 9-7 on Sunday in a game that featured eight home runs.

"We had a little nostalgia game, one that wasn't for the weak of heart," Colorado manager Clint Hurdle said. "Like old times, with a lot of home runs."

Each team hit four homers -- but the Cubs didn't enjoy theirs nearly as much.

"I'd managed here too many games before and again it was too painful to watch," Chicago manager Dusty Baker said. "You make mistakes and the ball flies out of here."

Garrett Atkins had three hits, including a solo homer, for the Rockies. Pinch-hitter Jorge Piedra added a three-run drive in the eighth as Colorado took two of three in the series.

"I wasn't here for the Blake Street Bombers, but this was the atmosphere they played in every game," Holliday said. "That picked me up as it did all of us and helped us come back from a great pitcher."

I was 26 at the time and since the Mets and Cardinals were from the same division, I was rooting against New York. Though it ranks very high, no sports team had ever had a 3-0 lead and then choked 4 straight games. I still think that's the biggest choke :-\\

No, I think the Yankees won that one. Giants and Dodgers are both in the National League (and always have been) so they can't possibly face e.o. in a World Series.

Anyway, my L.A. Dodgers beat Mark's Colorado Rockies last night 8-3; Jeff Weaver improved to 12-8 (which is the opposite of Derek Lowe's miserable record right now). So far, the Rockies haven't won at Dodger Stadium since last year. May the best team win tonight. ;)

Brooklyn Dodgers (4) vs New York Yankees (3)

Also, the Pirates and Yankees played in the 1960 World Series.

1960 World Series Game 1
Yankees  4

Yankees outscored the Pirates 43-27 and the Pirates still won the Series. Now THAT was exciting...though I've only seen highlights :)

No the Braves.  If you take every team's record from 1991-now and combine each year's records, the Atlanta Braves have the most wins.

Really? I guess they have always been a consistent team. Good enough to win near 100 or over.. but just not good enough to win it all.

The Braves can have the best record since whenever, all the division titles in a row....the questionable strike zone and on and on, all I care about is the fact they only have ONE title to brag about, but hey, they DO deserve congrats for that ;) It has been quite a while since St. Louis won it but are they still 2nd onlt to the wankees for most World Series wins??

Oh, and the Jints beat my Dodgers 2-1 yesterday. SF took a 1-0 lead on a 5th-inning error by the third baseman, and LA later tied the game, but Brazobum gave up a run in the 8th.

Yesterday the Angels beat the Red Sox to avoid a sweep and maintain a lead in the A.L. West. Today they begin a series in Chicago against the A.L. Central-leading White Sox...haven't checked the score on that one yet.

In about half an hour the Dodgers begin a weekend series at home against the N.L. West-leading Padres, who have been flirting with the .500 mark.

Yeah, it's pretty cool. He helps a young couple with thier lawn and leaves Atlanta's "A" on it :)  Though I've never cared for the Braves, I do respect many of thier players, past and present. I'm glad to see Maddux back in Chicago and hope Glavine can eventually win #300. As for Smoltz, he seems like a nice guy and I'm happy to see him get another chance at starter.
