About Me: eyemonfirst is a name composed of the old Abbott & Costello "Who's on First ?" skit and part of my last name which is fairly well known in baseball circles. This board has some really great contributors.

Finally !!!! Maybe not a BIG improvement in the team batting average but definitely a big improvement in the left side of the IF. Hopefully Bogaerts can handle third base (probably a lot better than M more »

More than likely the man was born intellectually deficient which was exacerbated by his steroid abuse. If his father was Joe Shmo from Kokomo he wouldn't be getting the press attention he has received more »

Good for you, John. Thus far the whole replay system is a joke.

Lousy pitching except a couple of the starters and the bullpen stalwarts. Lousy offense for the most part. Middlebrooks at third, no Steven Drew at SS, no stars in the OF (well, maybe Sizemore, we' more »

So sorry to find this out. Prayers and best wishes for recovery. Remember, a positive is very important during treatment.

I cannot, for the life of me, understand why this man keeps answering questions and making statements about his contract talks. Every time he opens his mouth on this subject he says the same thing th more »

Probably not TOO many baseball players are really good at talking off the top of their head. I watched his face as he made that remark, it looked like a throw-way phrase and now that it's been dissec more »

I happen to have all the ingredients for a side car on hand right now. Think I'll mix one up. It's snowing flakes as big as dinner plates. Enjoy the day. :)

Snide remark #1: Red Sox HOF exists only inside Fenway Park so who cares who's in it. It's all about the fan's $$$ anyway. #2: Tina Cervasio was by far the best female NESN reporter covering the more »

During the Dodgers/Cards games I was rooting for St. Louis. After reading more history and talking to a few people, I now fear I made a mistake. St; Louis has a very good history against us plus Buc more »

Obviously Kaufman wrote this article just to stir up a little "Pats lost, Sox haven't played game 3 yet" interest in the sports column. But to his credit he did put in writing a few of the insights we more »

@tooner: Lucchino said today on D & C that we just haven't seen all the good stuff Drew is capable of. Okay, I'll wait. What else can we do. But I hear bottom line talking here.

@jim767: True, he doesn't. He smiles and even speaks to the media.

Got to say it: I prefer Iglesias to Drew for all around effort because I think "Drewness runs in the family". They don't seem to be able to take much in the way of hard physical play. That being sai more »

What Jones said was no big deal, kind of funny really, just trash talking. I suppose, though, if we can't righteously bash the NYY because they're genuinely hurting, we could bash Baltimore. But som more »
