Default Expos sign big bat

The Expos jumped into the free agent market today by signing Carl Everett. Now if they could only keep Vlad, this would be one hell of an outfield this season though very limited pitching at best. Either way it'll be something if Everett can have the same type of season that he started out with in Texas last season, or if he flops in the n.l. once again.

Vlad needs to get out of there, he such a good player but he is wasting his career away in Montreal.

And playing in Baltimore wouldn't be wasting his career away? Take away Tejada and the O's have nothing even if they sign Pudge. They have no sould fielders or bats aside of the above names, they have no pitching, no bullpen and no closer. Case in point closed.

Anyplace is better than playing in Montreal.

No fans, no media coverage... in short no one really gives a shit.

You've not seen many Tigers or Devil Rays games then have you? That aside at least the Expos do something that the O's don't and that's win games and at least contend for third and keep it close most of the season.

Yeah, I'm not disagreeing with you, all I'm saying it I would like to see Vlad on a decent team that's all.

Orioles may not be such a bad team.....and they get lots of media coverage.....with Vlad, Tejada, Mora and Pudge they would have a formidable lineup.....the biggest problem for the O's is they are in the same division as the Yankees, who will buy the pennant until Steinbrenner runs out of money or they are contracted......

What good is it going to do you if you have bats and no pitchign? They have no quality starting pitching, and if a young pitcher gets tired, who's going to pitch the middle innings for them and then who's going to close out the game for them? They have NO starting pitching, NO relief and NO closer. Bats give you runs but you need pitching to not give up runs and save the game which the O's have none of.

Again how are they going to be better? Yes they'll score more runs but that doesn't assure you wins if you don't have pitching to stop giving up runs. Are they going to be more offensively productive? Yes, but what does that have to do with them benig a better team? How do you become a better team if you don't win more games then the season before? And how can they expect to win more games with the sox and yankees bettering their pitching staff as well as the jays, and a lot of other teams in the a.l.

on top of the signing of the bats, they are probably going to resign Ponson.....they have a new manager, which will take time to tell how he affects them.....they have a decent starting staff with Daal and Moss, add Ponson to that and you have better than average starters.....they are through the hangover of the fella that died last year, so they basically have nothing but good things to begin the season with.....again, that doesn't mean they will contend (and i could care less either way) but they will be improved.....there are still some pitchers out there that they could get off the free agent market, also.....they will probably finish no better than third, but that would be an improvement.....

Moss is an over rated pitcher and he sucked eggs in Atlanta. Ponson is more then likely going to end up in arizona or atlanta as he said he wants to play for an n.l. team and not return to the a.l. As for 3rd....I don't see them leaping over the Blue Jays for that honor.
