Loretta might actually play like this again. He showed in Milwaukee that he can hit, he just needs to do it on a regular basis...I wouldn't count him out...I can tell ya though I don't expect good ol' Javy "The Hitting Machine" Lopez to hit 40 dingers again...

and loaiza's been able to show he can pitch. did anyone see him in new york? ONE hit over SEVEN innings, NINE strikeouts. and that one hit was a fight-off by garcia that he got lucky on. i'm giving loaiza the benefit of the doubt. he doesn't need a wacky windup to scare hitters like willis or nomo does. so if the stats lie in schmidt's favor, how come they don't lie in loaiza's?

he's had 8 games with at least 8 strikeouts, and has only given up more than five runs once. he's had 14 starts where he gave up only 0 or 1 runs; opponents are batting .219 against him.


he's had 24 quality starts out of 28 overall. he's given up less hits than innings 17 times, and has only walked more than three twice. his confidence is higher than ever, and it's showing.


hope you read this loaiza haters

I love Loaiza! He's been pulling my team along all year. We all expected him to implode after April, but he just kept going. I guess that's because he's added another pitch or two to his repertoire...

I swear that you would disagree with me even if I said that Bonds was the best ever. LOL :-D

You are right. There is a reason that he was a back of the rotation guy. Their names are Maddux, Glavine, and Smoltz.

Melvin Mora I highly doubt will repeat his success until his hand injury like this year.

Also I don't know if Jose Guillen (A's) will keep it up either next year.

Just a couple less obvious ones i thought I 'd throw in :)
