    with the season under way and many changes
    the best improved team seem to be the (NEW YORK YANKEES )
    with the add of A-ROD can this team do it this year or will they fall

    and with the improvement of the CUBS adding G.Maddox with Prior & Wood
    this team should be back in the hunt once again but will they defeat the
    goat of the hunted pass and with the very best Houston Astros that was
    right behind them and BONDS & co...
    what team you think will make the RED OCTOBER RUN and best improved
    going into the season ?

    Hey Rich Glad to see a baseball fan here!

    I think the Cubs will make a nice run because they have increased their pitching depth. They right now have the best bullpen in the leauge (On Paper) and I Think their offense is decent enough to get some runs so I think people should watch out for them. Their team will be great as long as they do not try to blame fans for their loses. Their defense collapsed against Florida last year and if they can strengthen their defense they will be a force to reckon with in the NL.

    I personally think that A-Rod will be the Yankees Downfall, I would have took the salary that paid him and tried to get a few more younger stars into the club with whom the team could have built upon. George Steinbrenner's buy a World Series Mentalitity aint gone happen this year.

    Remember:

    The budget of the yanks was like 150 mil to 250 mil (Personnel)

    And the BUDGET OF MY MARLINS (FLAWDA RESIDENT HUR) was only like 62 million.

    The Yankees are old and are fading fast and money does not rejuvenate life you need young talent and I think George must understand this or he will be gone down as the man in Baseball History who was an idiot for trying to buy a world series.

    you made a very good point the cubs and astros will be in a hunt and war
    these two match up even and both improve them self the marlins also have
    depth ....the yankees have some power but thebullpin not strong as Boston
    A-Rod will be the tail spin of this team like the x-factor if they rise or fall
    time will tell

    what team seem to be off the the best start ???

    the cubs look good. NO matter how you look at it.

    I think the team to make the biggest mistake was NY getting A-rod. One man cannot win a baseball game.

    Yankees need a turn around as BOSTON blast them
    and right now the Tigers , Angels , BOSTON & White Sox
    are playing great baseball can the high price YANKEES come around ?

    now teams i look to see rise better as the season unfold will be the
    GIANTS & Bond but right now the CUBS are not missing a beat very hot
    winning 6 in a row ties with 4 other teams for the best record at 12-6
    and the sox not far off pace at 11-7 with that big 9th inning 3 run win
    but HOUSTON & CINCINNATI will be the teams to beat down the road
    FLORIDA & ATLANTA also will be in the thick of things will see by allstar
    break , but the YANKEES seem to be having trouble and looking for a turn
    around soon before they fall off the map ! A-ROD not missed in TEXAS
    they playing great ball and winning with second best record right now .
