After a tragedy here in Rio ( monday night rained the same volume in three hours that would rain in one month and the city became a KAOS. We are already with 178 deaths because of the rain) I'm back at our blog. My internet connection didn’t work until last night. But now we’re starting to get our live back so last discuss a little baseball.
After the first series is still to early to say who is the best team. Who got the best bats. And the best pitchers staff. But we can start to look a few things this week.
Once again look likes the Yankees and the Red Sox will have a great team. The Yankees let Damon and World Series MVP Matsui walk but got a great centerfield in Granderson and a on-base machine in Nick Johnson ( he is a freak…he doesn’t have a single hit yet but got on base 6 times on five walk and one HBP). The new fourth pitcher didn’t even start and we know that this team will be a very hard team to someone win. The Red Sox on the other hand just showed the new Sox. Defense defense defense. Their attack still don’t put to much fear on the other side. The two guys that the others team should fear are Youk and Martinez. I don’t know if is bias (i made no secret that I'm a Yankees fan) but unless their trio of starters (Beckett, Lester and Lackey) have a healthy and good season or they will be in trouble to score a lot of runs. And if that happen Tampa will be right there to take the wild card and go to the playoffs. They have a really talent team and one extra motivation: this is the last year for Crawford and Pena at Tampa.
On the others division looks like will be a competition between Twins and White Sox and between Angels and Texas. On the national league the Phillies, Cardinals and Giants look good and i believe the wild card will go to the Dodgers.
Last this season bring to us a great year !
Author comment: when the season got on motion I’ll start to talk a little bit more about the others team but always with The Yankees having priority.
