MLB 2010 Season

This charming man.

I'm a Yankees fan and this year will be an interesting one. Whilst I may have to wait until 2011, I am very much anticipating the arrival of Jesus Montero to the big leagues. It will also be interesting to see whether the arrival of Curtis Granderson is enough to cover the losses of Johnny Damon and Hideki Matsui. It will also be interesting to see if this is the year for regressions given many Yankees position players are over 35 and bound to decline in their performance (if you listen to all the MLB writers anyway). Will AJ Burnett stay healthy? Will Phil Hughes finally realise his potential and get his head in the right place this year?

Aside from the Yankees I'm really looking forward to seeing how some potential superstar rookies develop this year. Jason Heyward and Stephen Strasburg in particular. I'm also looking forward to see how Desmond Jennings progresses in the Tampa Bay farm system and how Austin Jackson plays in centre-field for Detroit.

Only a few days before the season starts, I can't wait....:thumb:

Poor Jered Weaver. :tears: I hate when this shit happens. If taunts that blankety blank makes the world go 'round weren't put on the table for discussion, these things wouldn't happen. It's like taunting a projecting, fighting pitbull for fun. :mad: Very irresponisible.

I think getting Granderson out there in cf and moving Gardner to left is part of the answer to the aging team but contracts might make the turnover slow. Damon and Matsui are gone. The trade in the other direction age wise is Melky is out while Nick Johnson is in. NJ in an on base machine and is going to dominate in the 2 hole. With him mostly a DH all year he should stay healthy.

The bullpen has Park at 37 and Mariano at 40. Park worries me since he really wasn't that good for Philly last year and he's a year older and in the AL East this year. The Sandman is ageless so I'm not phased by that at all.

Speaking of ageless.. what is up with Posada? That peeing on his hands thing is working.

Marte is 35 but he's a specialist and I think he can come in and face 1 lefty and hit the showers.

The youth out there comes from Joba and Robertson. Too bad DR got shelled the other night. Girardi was saying he could be the 8th inning guy. He throws hard but lacks consistency.

I think the overall feel of the team is a little younger than last year but not much. I don't really see a lot of room for change on the roster after this season.

I'm not sure how to get the age off this team but if they keep winning you wouldn't want to.

Go Red Sox!!!
just kidding

Actually once Park settled in to the Middle relief role he was excellent in the Phillies pen. Many of us were disappointed that he didn't return including himself.
