FORE'S Place... Baseball Chat
« on: February 23, 2013, 07:57:46 PM »
The 2013 Season is just over a month a way and its time to get this ball flying.

Welcome all, here we will chat all things Baseball.
Last year was a Breakout year for rookies, will they have the second year blues or continue to fly.
Will the leagues best closer in Mariano Rivera return to form after missing all of last year or is his age beginning to show?
 Lets answer these and many more questions throughout the year.

Remember if your teams not winning they are rebuilding grin1

All are welcome just be kind to all and we shall make this a Great Year.

The yanks think Rivera will be on point come opening day ! He surprised every one with his progress. I remember last season when he said he would be back..not much of a Yankee fan but very much a human story fan.

Have to admit there has been nobody better. But I think his age is catching him. His heart says yew but the body is saying maybe.

We'll see, I wish him the best !  Johan has been pushed back to the middle of March for his work outs due to muscle strength, all those involved seem to think he is on schedule to start.

Sounds the same as Santana.  Arm weakness. His first preseason start pushed back 2 weeks but hopefully will be ready for Opening Day.

I'm keeping Dickey in two of my dynasty leagues but with strong reservations. He had better deliver.

That is one thing not to worry about. I understand why the Mets gave him up, the trade worked out well for them. As they say buy low sell high.
What do you think will happen with Strassburgh thus year?

He's projected to go at 4th in the drafting this year and I would surly take him if available.

Anyone have any interest in the WBC?  I haven't really heard much about it.  Canada has it's deepest team ever, but still not up there with the big boys.

I personally don't care for the Classic. While the premise is good I believe it to be another glorified All Star Game. The only difference being you get an invitation and can accept or reject.

This is a great idea to get discussion goin'!  Maybe rename it "Fore's Place" haha

Very disappointed in the Pirates trading Hanrahan.

If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that's a full day. That's a heck of a day. You do that seven days a week, you're going to have something special.

BUT..guess we better focus on just getting to the 9th with the lead before worrying about the closer.

Do you see options now at the bottom left such as move, remove, lock a topic, set it sticky or non, etc?

Should be able to modify or remove someone's post in this area as well.

I wasn't trying to say the Giants would win the WS, again, this upcoming season...
Just enjoying the title.
Anyway, it would be a lil greedy to win it all, yet again.
I'm content with two out of the last three...for now.

Those are on the top right of every message..same place where you've always been able to edit your own posts but in MLB can do it to everyone.
