So Yankees, as always busy around deadline day and were quite successful. Abreu and Lidle for a bunch of minor league prospects of which only Smith looks half decent. Don't know too much about Lidle to be honest but Abreu will give another strong bat and some experienced coverage for Sheffield while he's out injured (and more than likely replace him for next season) Also picked up Craig Wilson for Chacon to give us another strong bat. Had him in my MVP Baseball 2005 team as well actually. Might mean Andy Phillips doesn't get as much time as he should though which is a shame.
Red Sox and Jays did nothing and we kept hold of Cano, Melky and Phillips so a good trade deadline time all around for the Yanks
Still plenty of races to be decided. The White Sox only have a half game lead over the Twins. The NL East is still up for grabs and the NL Wild Card is tied at the moment. The Dodgers are pretty much there now.
Great atmosphere although 5 pints helped! Jays again just off the pace but I hope Tampa carry on doing well
I'm pretty surprised to see that Detroit haven't won yet and they are the team on Five tonight I think. It's all very early and a lot of games to go.
Saying that we gave Boston a half season head start and we still pushed them to the wire and we only lost in the playoffs thanks to some awful umpiring so hopefully with some luck we can finally win the big one again
I had a look at the NASN website and it says the first game they are showing on Monday 5th March is Minnesota V the Yankees in a Spring Training game. :)
