Well, with Matsui going to the Angels, they might have an extra outfielder. Sounds like he is going to be primarily their DH, but even still.
And, further word, is that Philly is losing Happ, Blanton and Dominic Brown, their top positional prospect, in this deal. BluesMan is right. Their pitching staff is going to be gutted. Who is going to start for them? They’ll have 2 guys. Halladay and Hamels coming off a horrible season. Lee is gone. Is Madson going to start? Are they going to sign someone like Ben Sheets? Is Moyer back? I’ll take the end result.
Curt, that talk is from hours ago, unless you’ve got something fresh. What talk do you have?
MLBTR has this as its latest:
10:12pm: Bob Elliott of the Toronto Sun (via Twitter) has Toronto getting Kyle Drabek, Michael Taylor, and Travis D’Arnaud; Philly getting Roy Halladay and Phillippe Aumont; and the Mariners getting Cliff Lee, plus another piece (or, pieces).
Sorry to miss such great chatter but I was helping a friend stay married. Not to mention the fact that December is eating me alive. If the Philly’s end up with Lee and Halliday I’m in my van down by the river partaking in a strong illegal substance and jumping in said river.
Bub, do you just look at different Twitter pages or do you have an account? Cause, I haven’t recieved a follow request from you…I’m sure it’s some sort of electronic delay. I get it…you’re afraid the Rev will kick your ass. Between you and me, I think you could take him.
(If you have an account and you’re afraid I’m a crazy phsycho lady just pretend you don’t even know what it means to tweet.)
The Phillies will be unstoppable if they somehow keep Lee and add Halladay. Even if Atlanta’s rotation matches theirs in ERA over the year cuz of our depth, those hitters will put them way ahead. Not only that, but while Atlanta’s rotation is built for winning a division/ wild card, a Lee-Halladay combo would be built for postseason domination, where the first and second starters are the most important pieces of your team.
Would be bad, bad news. Atlanta could still capture the wild card, but Philly would win 105 games and be post-season beasts. The Phils would fall back to earth in 2011 when Lee jets, and the Heyward-Hanson-Jurrjens trifecta should enter its full strength then, but who wants to wait another year? Say NO to Lee-Halladay.
Leah, I might could take the Rev, but his Boss is another story. We’ll figure out the tweet bid’ness when I get back. Going to make the family rounds the next few days.
Hey gang – Sorry for being away, looks like I have missed some good talk. A couple of things. . . .
– We are planning a show for Sunday. Message received. Lots to talk about, including my getting to hold both of the Red Sox world series trophies and meeting Sam Kennedy, COO of said Red Sox. Pretty cool. Also pretty funny watching the couple of Cubs fans in attendance staying as far away as possible while still looking longingly at them.
– I think that Zep III is one of the best/most under-rated albums by them. Since I’ve Been Loving You is one of the greatest rock/blues songs of all time. Celebration Day. Tangerine. Out on the Tiles. Amazing record.
– I love Physical Graffiti though. In the Light is a HOF rock song. Ten Years Gone is also quite good. In My Time of Dying. Quite a few others.
“I take it kind of personal,” Lowe said. “Noboby made them give me a four-year, $60 million contract. There wasn’t a ransom or anybody holding a gun to their heads. It was a negotiation and that’s what they viewed as fair. I would have never even considered going there if I knew that ultimately this was going to happen.”
Freaking loser. He stunk up the joint for 15 biggie-large. Hush up and move on. You think you’d have ever been hired if the Braves “knew that ultimately this was going to happen”? Just two different this’s, that’s all.
No, Tcc, he isn’t any good. I’m mad at him. He stinks. His 15 wins were all supported by eleven runs or more, and sometimes he was awarded a win even though the Braves lost. He is a stinky, dirty bum who can’t throw anything but a fit.
(Miller High Life commercials are good. Miller High Life beer is bad.)
Dude needs to shut his pie hole or no one’s going to want him. I thought he was from Cali. Shouldn’t he be hopeful in a potential trade close to home? Like say the Padres (fingers crossed so hard they’re cramping)? Is there any validity to the theory that trading Lowe after one year other free agents would think twice about coming to Atl?
Does anyone know about toilets that run every few minutes? Just a little bit and very much on it’s own. I may throw it out the window before the night i over.
