interesting. Thanks for the 411


No problem. Just remember that Peterson sucked big time above AA last year and most people (except for JP) don't think that he can make it as a closer. My money is on Frasor.


How about a Braves preview Trev. I've got Larry in my NL-only keeper. I think that he can bounce back but I need a professional opinion. Who will Mazzone rebuild this year????

The Braves have hardly any money to spend and really aren't going to be that different in 2005. We added Julio Franco back for 1b platoon duty but other then that I don't see any other suprises unless they happen via trade. I'd love for Millwood to come back for the $5 million that the Braves offered him.

As for Chipper here is a nice article I just read:
http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/news?slug=c ... type=story

I'd like to see Chucky T be the full time Left Fielder and there is Talk that Marte or Ryan Langerhans will have a shot at taking over the RF job if we don't get another OF via Trade/Free agency.

That's about all I know..

The Koskie prediction seems pretty ambitious, Mookie. How did you come up with those stats? :-?

These are just my projections. Koskie is going to be hitting in a better lineup than he had with Minny. The Jays will not be as offensively talented as 2 years ago but they will be a lot better than last year. The HR my be a little optimistic but I think that he will see a lot of good pitches. The rbis are pretty conservative though. When he played a full year in 2001 he hit over a hundred. I see Koskie batting a lot from the fifth spot behind Wells and Rios, who will get on base a lot and either right in front of or right behind Clark, assuming that he is signed.

Wow, I'm somewhat of a Jays fan, but with a lineup like that, I can't possibly see anything good coming out of Toronto. Something makes me think that team would be the 2003 Tigers in a hitter's stadium rather than comerica...

Other than Halladay and Wells, I can't see drafting anybody else off that team. I might pick up Lilly really late because he's a great spot starter.
Yes, I was, uh... I was thinking about ordering the tape, the videotape... about the college girls and the... the wild... the wildness. They're going wild or something? Somebody told me... about going wild.

Mookie4ever wrote:So Tiger fans - can you give us a sense of what to look for this yr with the team you project they will have? Maybe a lineup and rotation?


Mookie, I started working on this project but came to the conclusion that too much is still up in the air right now.

I do appreciate your preliminary look at the Jays though - good stuff.

okay! blue jays! let's play ball! :-D

hey mookie. how about one of my favorite players, mr reed johnson? if he could only hit against righties... :,-( are the jays thinking about not playing reed in the OF in 2005?

i'd also bet on frasor to be the closer next season. i think he just got tired later in the year and couldn't get anybody out.

It was rumored in the past couple of weeks that Rios might be part of a trade. Is this still the case?

nice work for the most part, but there is no way tony "swing and a miss" clark his 27 dingers. The guy is a good defensive player, but he swings from his heels and strikes out alot. The guy was an automatic out late in the year and in the post season. You can have him for nothing as far as im concerned
