Lou Pineilla made a stupid move today- he elected to walk A-rod intentionally in a clutch spot (close game with runners on and 2 outs) to pitch to Hideki Matsui. Of course Matsui came through. But I was sure A-rod would have made an out in that situation.
[b]Bold Predictions:[/b]

Grady Sizemore will have more value than Jason Bay regardless of draft position

Aramis Ramirez in 155 G will hit over .300 40 HR 110 RBIs

Brian McCann will have more value than Jorge Posada regardless of draft position
