Venting, Cheering and Verlander's heater

Postby kab21 » Mon Jul 25, 2011 2:31 am

Today's Games - Today's (yuk :-D ) Heat - Bullpen Report - Press Pass

There is some potential rain for the East Coast games.

This week's photo is the Dona Suspension Bridge in Maolin National Scenic Area, Taiwan. My blog - next week I'll be on a motorcycle trip in Taiwan. So no pictures unless veresy posts one in my absence.

Finally an interesting poll with 4 teams contending for the division.

Past results
7/18 - Phillies and 90+ wins was nearly unanimous
6/27 - Red Sox and 90+ wins was nearly unanimous
6/20 - Rangers (nearly unanimous) with 85+ wins (nearly even split between 85-89 and 90+ wins)
6/13 - Tigers with 85-89 wins

Just 7 more days until the trading deadline is here. A few deals have happened but no blockbusters yet. Will Rasmus, Pence or Kemp get dealt? These are unlikely imo but what about Kuroda, Bell, Beltran or Reyes? Will the Twins (7GB) be buyers or sellers at the deadline? What about those Pirates?

that's not exactly how the poll works although I interpret the results the same way.

I feel like the Brewers are about to reel off a massive winning streak.

She said that the first night that she met me
