    I think maybe they just don't want to waste his decent power at the leadoff spot. Melky is more of a slaphitter. Still, I agree with you.

    Yeah, I would have no problem if the moderators wish to change the title to baseball thread (Fcuk yeah!)-I do think that retaining some of the original title is appropriate, considering its our "national pastime" and all.

    Incidentally, has profanity in thread titles always been against the rules, or is this a new thing? I don't care all that much, but I'd like to know whether I committed an offense or if its just moderator discretion.

    I don't think it's an offense, it's just I skipped over it several times because I didn't know what it was about.

    Lots of interesting news lately:

    Phils' Halladay throws MLB's 20th perfecto | phillies.com: News

    I'm glad my Braves don't have to face him in the upcoming series...lately, it seems like this is the only way the Phillies can win a game. I empathize with EffEmDoubleyou and other Phillies fans (I still remember the Braves' 9-game losing streak last month), but I'm hoping the Phillies' skid continues for a while.

    Kendry's walk-off slam comes with injury | angelsbaseball.com: News

    :ouch: It must suck to be an Angels fan this year.

    Tribe's Huff hit by liner; CT scan negative | indians.com: News

    Wow, that was almost the second play-related fatality in baseball history!

    No, not really. I know a guy who is a Twins fan and keeps saying the same thing to me. "It must really suck......"

    Currently we are 25-27 and 2.5 games out of first place. And here's the key part: with 110 games remaining!

    There's only a couple of teams that are totally out of it at this point - and even they could recover if they went on a tear.

    The Morales injury is one of those freak things that happens sometimes. Very unfortunate. But, the Angels season is not over because Morales is out. I'm sure Scioscia is disappointed, but I don't think he's in "panic mode". Check back in September, I'm pretty sure the Angels will at least be in the pennant chase for the AL West.

    ^Just 1 week after my above post (and after the Morales injury):

    Texas Rangers...........30-26.....---
    Los Angeles Angels.....31-28.....0.5

    Looooooong way to go still. A lot can change in a very short period of time.

    Yeah, a team can go from losing 9 straight games to winning nine straight games in one month! Still, that's a very tragic injury, and one that is bound to make things tougher for the Angels this year....I wish your team luck, though-unless they're playing against the Braves, of course.

    Tell your friend the Twins fan that an anonymous internet Braves fan was very impressed with this year's Twins team, and would love an October rematch (its amazing how the absence of Kent Hrbek removes all bitter feelings. )

    ^^ Yeah, Twins have a pretty decent squad.
