I was just watching ESPNews and caught a report from Boston and Ravy. In which Boston stated he thinks the Sox are the favorites in the Central Next year.

He loved the Ritchie deal earlier today. I think he is just happy the Red Sox traded that whack job.

As a long-suffering Sox Fan, I believe this is a very bad sign.

I don't know. He couldn't stop talking about the Indians last year and how they would win the central. I remember becuase it made me so mad since we were coming back from a championship with everyone back and then some. Things didn't turn out so bad for them this year...

Being perfectly wrong would imply some sort of knowledge. Boston is much more like a random number generator. :smile:

Ooooo, I like your line of thinking! I remember being pissed at Gammons for the same reason. He dismissed our chances before the first pitch of spring training.

Cleveland wasn't that good, but the Twinks and Sox played just poor enough to hand them back their crown.

How do any of you see Minnesota shaping up next year? Obviously Pohlad isn't going to do anything to support them. Maybe the players will get an even bigger chip on their shoulder and peel off 95 wins.

Or maybe not?

I'm not really a Gammons hater...overall I'm pretty ambivalent about him....but that is a FUNNY quote you just put up!

The way he just slings crap and the wall to see what sticks is actually amusing. It's the people who think he's an "expert" who are more annoying. :smile:

That was the point I was trying to make with my Bmr post.

How hard would you play knowing your owner thinks you shouldn't be a team anymore? If the players like Pohlad, they lay down and blow it big time so he has an argument whent the fans don't show up.

If the players don't like Pohlad, they may just rip the cover off the ball for a few months, but their lack of run support will come back to bite them in the ass in the long run...

Not so fast. Detroit just signed in/of Craig Paquette! The Tigers are the team to be feared.

I must be getting tired, I read this and actually started laughing out loud to myself.

Well Done!

Yeah, but the Twinks players are used to being underdogs with no expectations. I see no reason why another year won't make them a better team. I'd like to point out they now have the best rotation in our division (Yeah, Glover, Parque, and Wright are REAL scary.) If the Twinks can find a manager and be consistent, I like them.

Boy, I'm optimistic, huh?

It's like the Twins were owned by Disney:

Major League 4 - The Twins, 2002!

Using the original script. Changing the words 'relocation' to 'contraction'. The players rally from 18 games down at the end of May to win the AL central after Denny Honking hits a granny off the evil Yankee pitcher Marino Riverna. Crispin Guzzan resumes the role of Willie Mays Hayes, David Ortiz plays the voodoo worshiping Pedro Cerrano, and Joel Mays debuts as Rickey 'Wild Thing' Vaughn

Maybe Dreamworks would do it... I bet it would make a fortune. 'Based on a true story'.

I don't blame you. There was some quality post of the week material in here...

The twins owned us last year and finished ahead of us. They made some ?able moves around the deadline that won't help. They made the mistake of ponying up to the overrated radke. Plus, my guess is someone else in the division will jump up.
We should be slight favorites, I suppose, but not overwhelming - YET - let's see what else Kenny Williams can do for us.

Or what KW does to improve the rest of the AL Central's chances. :D:

At least he doesn't look as uncomfortable as John Clayton does on camera. It's painful watching that guy give a report. And that fake Seattle backdrop doesn't help either.
