Extra Innings: 05/17/07

Marz’s thoughts:  There are only 6 legitimate contenders for the playoffs in the National League in my opinion. It will be much easier for some teams to make the postseason in the NL because I only see the Mets, Braves, Brewers, Dodgers, Padres and Phillies as threats. In the American League, there are many more solid teams and because it is that much better, it will make it harder to comeback from deficits.
P.S. – Join me for some Spring Training later this month in Philadelphia and I prepare to play softball with the Phillies ballgirls and Sixers dancers. Spring Training will last as long as they want it to.

Cuch’s thoughts:  With a team in such dire straits due to numerous injuries as the Blue Jays are, it will take a leader to step up and pick up the slack. Clearly, guy number one to do so is AJ Burnett. The righty pitched beautifully tossing a complete game against the O’s while allowing just 1 run and striking out 10.
P.S. – What was Lino Urdaneta thinking getting a 50 game ban for substance abuse? He just had two days at the big league level and allowed a homer in one total inning of work.

Vinny- Doesn’t it seem the Met’s have the “Suspension of the Month” club? I think Omar Minaya needs to quit worrying about Lastings Milledge and his crappy music, and try figuring out what’s going on with his teams drug suspensions.

John- Don’t count out the Cubs. Yeah, they’re playing poor baseball, but the talent is there to turn it around. The Diamondbacks are also an interesting team to look out for.

Oh, I have some questions for Jose Reyes, where can I send them to…;)
