WOW. Big Baseball trades

Looks like Manny is going to end up in LA.
Griffey Jr. going to the White Sox.

But the one that bothers me is Jason Bay going to the Red Sox. That is a slap in the face of Pirates fans.

I went there a month ago and Jason Bay was the star of that team and every kid had on his jersey. I'd be pretty ****ed if I were a Pirates fan.
Now they will spend another 20 years "Rebuilding".

Another year of Peter Angelos imposed mediocrity for the O's.

Re: WOW. Big Baseball trades

Astro's are pretty bad over here.
Seems like they have some big bats, but no pitching.

It doesn't matter who wins or loses. It is just a game.

Re: WOW. Big Baseball trades

All that matters is that the Cubs lose, and I dont even like baseball. In fact the Cubs are my second most hated team in all professional sports.

I read today that the Red Sox are interested in getting Tejada from the Astros.
