Florida Pitching, Montreal Hitting

Postby bucsfan04 » Sun Apr 18, 2004 7:23 pm

First of all, what is up with Montreal?! I mean, i know they weren't supposed to hit well, but cmon, they had 10 runs their first 9 games. Wilkerson, who i drafted on both my teams, has been awful. Looks like a bad season for the whole team.

Also, Florida's pitching is phenominal, and Beckett looks great. 13 runs/9 games, that's amazing. Do you think they can continue this the whole season?

The rotation is one thing, but they said something on Baseball Tonight that I thought was interesting. McKeon stuck Alfonseca in a tie game to pitch the 8th inning. They made a big deal about how Jack is going to wear out his pitchers, and I hadn't thought of that. It would just be a shame, after Torborg ruined Burnett...those Marlin pitchers have had such a great start to the season.

Alfonseca? The same Alfonseca that pitches for the Braves? :-?

that would be a pretty clever move... getting free pitching while wearing out the opposition \o/

Yes, that one.

No, I actually meant Benitez, the closer. I get my hefty relievers mixed up sometimes.

the difference between Benitez and Alfonseca is that one doesnt suck. Can you guess which one sucks? Heres a hint: Not Benitez. Floridas staff is doing great, but the braves swept them. So they are only 8-4 now I think. Not bad though.

Hey, Montreal's starting to come around a little bit. Wilkerson's 5 for his last 7 and had a homer and a steal today.
Roger Angell: I was talking with Bob Gibson and I said: 'Are you always this competitive?' He said: 'Oh, I think so. I got a three-year old daughter, and I've played about 500 games of tic-tac-toe with her and she hasn't beat me yet.'
