Suprising/Disapointing 2004 MLB Season


Registered Member
well, lets just get the dissapoitnment out of the way, then we will get to the suprises...

Everyone here knows Im a AZ Diamondback's fan... and there season in a nutshell has been really bad... currently they are 46-102 (the D-backs have never lost more than 100 games in a season until this year) and with 14 games left to play... it will be there most dissapointing season ever

The d-backs have had the most players on the DL this year, and are playing with only 3 veteran players (more than 3 years MLB service) after trades of Alomar, Finley, Mayne, Dessens (thank GOD) , and a few others

Luis Gonzales decieded to have surgery at the beginning of August because the team was WAY out of contention (he had been playing injured all year (torn ligiment in elbow)

Next year should be interesting for the Dbacks as they will have Gonzo and Sexton back from injuries (if they sign Sexton which is looking better and better daily) Im also hopeing that the D-backs will offer Steve Finley a contract at the end of the season that will bring him back to Arizona as he is THE BEST CENTER FIELDER EVER (imo)

Now to the surprises...

St Louis Cardnials... expected to be in the middle of the pack in the NL central... they are currently 3 games away from clinching there division... 14.5 games ahead of the Cubs... they have former D-back's Reggie Sanders and Tony Womack

Boston Red Sox... one month ago the Sox were 10.5 games out of first place (first being occupied by the NY Yankees)... going into today, they are 2.5 games out of first place, and have the wild card lead, and have the only 20 game winner this year in Curt Schilling ( a Former Dback) as of right now they Sox are in a series with the Yanks... The Boston Red Sox pulled out there second victory against the Yankee's closer Marino Rivera last night

Ill leave it on that note... there are more suprises... but I thing this post is long enough with out getting people bored

EDIT... 7 views and no posts.... comeon people!!!!

Randy Johnson's perfect game was great.

And of course, Barry Bonds slugging in his 700th homerun was history being written.
