Very subdued, I think I commented on that the other week in the chat board section.

I would think at some point many of the Canadian players put the skates on at the junior level and remembered the moves they leared there.

I feel the WBC is under hyped at this point, many of the best U.S. players not playing on the U.S. team is one reason, another other being not as much advertizing, it not being shown on the regular ESPN netowks, and March Madness the focus of the U.S. sports world at the moment have also hurt it's ratings.

If it was World Boxing Council, Adam Jones would have won the belt today.

What form of Softball?

Fast Pitch, Slow Pitch, Unlimited Arc, Mens, Womens?

Mens fastpitch World Championship, less time for a hitter to react than in baseball.

By the way....it is the year of the Dodgers smile

Certainly you mean Blue Jays, with all the dough they've been lavishing on players in the past few months.

I have played bar league and office league slow pitch 6-12 and unlimited arc leagues.

Haven't been in a fast pitch league, but I did used to toy around in the fast pitch batting cages once in a while.

Congrats to New Zealand on that World Championship.

Yes, LDV the Oriole-Blue Jay trash talk started on the middle of page one, I was waiting for you to join the fun.

At least it's American League East trash talk, where the real teams play.

I must have missed the thread previously, otherwise I would have chimed in much earlier!

And it's true, the AL East has in the past few decades been one of the most, if not the most, competitive divisions in baseball.

Spending tons of money on star players does work, it just takes a year to fulfill the true potential. Just ask Chelsea FC or the Miami Heat.

You do mean only four teams right? As for trash talk, the AL West will be competitive (excluding the Stros).

Dave isn't a fan of the evil empire.

AL East gets the NL West this year, so no Cards games for the O's or Jays.

Dave, I can't put Seattle in quality team category yet, they were 12 game under last year.

Charles is right...as far as I am concerned, there are only four teams in the AL East...the Yankees don't count. wink

Yanks to go 0-162!!!

Many quality teams played in the AL East whether you like them or not, even the Texas Rangers' franchise used to play there! And the Yanks, as much as we hate 'em, we still have to beat 'em.

I want to see them Yanks lose every game. I can't think of a division/team that likes the Yankees LOL!

I think what Howie is saying is that it's an absolute LOCK that the Astros are going to be World Champs, and that everybody should pick them to win EVERY game this season. I don't see how they could lose, so stacked......

23 players are making more this year than the Astros' team combined!

Might be a long year down in South Texas.
