Extra Innings: 04/20/07
Marz’s thoughts: There is more than just the Yanks and Sox this weekend. I am excited to see many different series’ play out starting tonight. The Mets are home against Atlanta and Tim Hudson looks like he is back to his old form. The Cubs host the Cardinals and that is one intense rivalry as well. Plus, don’t fall short on the A’s and Rangers and White Sox and Tigers. Enjoy the weekend games…I know i will.
P.S. – Happy Birthday to my mother…she turns 80 this weekend and to all lefty throwing kids – – LEARN THE CHANGEUP!
Cuch’s thoughts: The World Baseball Classic committee announced that they have approved 8 teams with 8 more to come for the 2009 tourney. The teams accepted are the obvious ones and irrelevant for this point. The fact that the tourney is back on someones mind is nice. I thought the first run through was great but filled with errors that hurt players going into, during and after the games. I think the 2nd time around, we will get a much better idea of what teams bring to the world stage!
P.S. – Of course, baseball is my favorite sport but i love ALL sports and i am kind of dissapointed that i have very little interest in this years NBA playoffs. Who is with me? The first round is predictable and the final four will be the same again!
Chris the Producers thought’s: Don’t forget it was ME who said Alex Rodriguez will finish with 75 homers and 175 RBIs this year! The Year of A-Rod! I have spoken….
