OK, so they didn't have a lot of good stuff to say about the Reds or Cincinnati (to put it mildly), but it's an entertaining read. Warning: there's some light profanity, nothing major.
My favorite parts.
On the Braves:
On the Mets:The Braves have a lot of new faces and a few untested players, but that shouldn’t stop them from falling just short this year.
On the Cardinals:With a rotation of Pedro Martinez, Aaron Heilman, Tom Glavine, and Victor Zambrano, the Mets know they have 2 pitchers they can count on to win some games for them.
On the Astros:They signed Sidney Ponson, who is hoping to rebound from his entire career to have a good 2006.
On the Pirates:The team’s weakness is its starting lineup, which is unfortunate because starting lineups are important parts of baseball teams.
On the Cubs:Manager Jim Tracy said that losing is “unacceptable,” which means they’re still going to lose but now they're not going to accept it, for what that’s worth.
On the Diamondbacks:Kerry Wood may not be ready in time for opening day. That sentence should be engraved on a plaque on the wall of the manager's office at Wrigley Field.
Mark Prior was dangled as trade bait in the offseason for shortstop Miguel Tejada, probably because the Cubs would prefer someone who is actually good, rather than someone who is theoretically good.
The D’Backs acquired Javier Vazquez and Troy Glaus last year in an aggressive push to finish fourth in their division, which went horribly wrong when they actually finished second. Consequently both players are gone.
The weakness of this team lies in its starting rotation. Jesus, who assembled this group, Corky? OK, Brandon Webb is serviceable. Miguel Batista is a fine poet and plays a mean wood flute, but he’s not much of a pitcher. Oh, and the less said about Russ Ortiz the better. Welcome to Loserville, people. Population: the entire D’backs pitching staff.
