Notes: Mets OF Timo Perez missed his third game due to injury. "Timo is close. He has a strained groin he was playing with and it wasn't getting any better."
Geez. Maybe he ought to stop playing with it for a while!
I figured this was coming sooner rather than later. Here is the Link:
Sosa is in a great position to catch and or pass Mac this season. He is in a lineup with protection in front and behind for the first time since 98. With Young and Mueller or Gut followed by Coomer,Stairs, Sosa will fit nicely in the 4 hole with Hundley and hopefully a healthy White behind him. This is a good lineup.His contract nonsense is over he hit 50 -138-320 last year in that circus ,has averaged 59 for 3 years,I got a feelin this could be a MONSTER year.
Hey, did anyone SEE that dove that got pegged by the pitch as both crossed homeplate in a game yesterday?? I only caught a glimpse as I was coming into the livingroom , as the sportscaster was disgusted, and I'd missed most of the story!! It was an ancredible visual, though, but I have NO idea which game or pitcher or batter that was, as I'd missed the story... anyone have details?
Is it a rule all of a sudden that if anyone hits the great Piazza that it is automatically intentional? Come on grow up.
Let's see if he inserts foot in mouth once again!
Griffey hurt while rounding third

HAINES CITY, Fla. (AP) -- Ken Griffey Jr. had to be helped off the field Monday after he appeared to pull his hamstring while rounding third base.
The Cincinnati Reds center fielder was bothered earlier this spring by a sore left hamstring. There was no immediate word on the severity of the injury.
Rumor has it that now Manny Ramirez has gone down with a hamstring injury. Looks like the BoSux are going to be limping (couldn't resist :lol: ) into the regular season. If I didn't dislike them so much I'd almost feel sorry for them.
In yesterday's game vs. the Mutts Irabu was so slow to the plate that the Mutts stole four bases in the first inning :lol: I guess the 25 lbs. he lost isn't helping him much.
Buh Bye Stay Puft Marshmellowman :lol:
TUCSON — David Wells insists he will retire after this season if the Chicago White Sox don't exercise his $9 million option for 2002. ''This is my last stop,'' Wells said Sunday. ''If they pick it up, they pick it up. If not, I will retire.'' Wells, acquired in January from Toronto, will make $8.25 million this year and Chicago would have to pay a $1.25 million buyout if it declines the option. ''I'm...

Estes inspires kids to help fight
By Chris Shuttlesworth
Shawn Estes' best pitch isn't a knee-high fastball for an inning-ending strikeout. It's
his message to children about how they can help fight a serious disease.
Channel 4 broadcaster Bob Lobel At 12:25 pm on Sports Radio WEEI in Boston says the Red Sox and Nomar are "inching" closer toward surgery. The surgery, which would be on a split tendon in Nomar's right wrist, could leave Nomar out of the lineup until August. Although a final decision has not yet been announced, such an announcement is possible within days or even hours according to Bob Lobel.

TAMPA -- The Devil Rays met up with the Yankees at Legends Field on Wednesday night, one of just two games they play against the defending World Series champions this spring. If only their regular-season schedule were so light.
Major League Baseball has adopted an unbalanced schedule for 2001, placing a greater emphasis on games within divisions.

Higginson, who has one year left on his contract, has said if a contract extension is not completed before the season begins, negotiations will be stopped. Higginson's agent, Ed Hayes, said he was asking for a little more than $40 million over four years, but the Tigers'...

March 17, 2001
PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) -- Rickey Henderson's path toward employment with the San Diego Padres started in typical Henderson fashion -- in the third person.
Take his phone call last month to Padres general manager Kevin Towers, the one that planted the seed for the club's interest in signing the future Hall of Famer.

MARYVALE, Ariz. — Doug Eddings is a baby-faced, third-year major league umpire who does aerobics, studies videos and quizzes the guys who have been around a while, all with the idea of improving his fundamentals.
So as Major League Baseball reconfigures the strike zone this season — making it higher, narrower and more consistent — Eddings welcomes a new high-tech learning tool.
Oh baby x 5!!!!!
This Spring For Melvin:
Mora Babies, Opportunity

All of a sudden, Melvin Mora has a lot more on his mind than a new position, a new cap with a bird on it and a new city. The next great change in his life came earlier this week at a hospital in Fort Lauderdale.
After 10 professional seasons, and less than 250 major league at-bats, Mora, 29, will begin this year in somebody's starting lineup at last. The Mets traded him to Baltimore...
