    These guys were rated to be the top team in the MLB and so far are off to a 2-10 start. They're supposed to be "jacked."

    They had a 3-0 lead after three earlier today, and lost it all.

    What's going on with them? Honestly, when are they just going to turn it around? What do you think?

    There are still 150 games to play. It’s way too early to panic. Ask this in about 40 or so games.

    I always hated their spring training philosophy. They don't play their starters and their pitching staff never gets enough warmup for the starting season. They will turn things around but they always find a way to drive their fans crazy.

    This usually happens when the "experts" pick a team to go all the way. Last year they most of them picked the Angels and the Dodgers to go to the World Series and look what happened to them. Also, I agree with aggie. It's way to early to panic. In 2002, the Angels started something like 6 - 14 and they won the World Series.

    Agreed.

    Pitchers should hit too.

    This was just an entertainment decision, and nothing to do with the original sport.

    Just consider Babe Ruth, a pitcher/outfielder. What would his stats be, if he was allowed to bat, before joining the Yankees and converting to a fielder?

    Babe Ruth did bat while he was a pitcher. The DH wasn't introduced into MLB until 1973.

    Also, it seems the "fake" baseball league has won 20 of the last 30 All-Star games. Maybe the "fake" league has the better "real" players.
