Penny was disappointing is L.A. and I wouldn't be surprised if he returns to his old Cy Young form in Boston. This kind of thing always happens to the Dodgers.

Yup... Penny has always had the potential to be one of the best pitchers in baseball if he stays healthy. I can see him being pretty darned good for the Red Sox, posting a lot of wins, but with an elevated ERA.

I do you think a Rays fan like me feels about it? I swear, the Rays have one damn good season & it's like the Yankees & Red Sox treat it like Armageddon. Suddenly the mighty, loaded with money Yankees & Red Sox fear the poor ol' Rays. It's almost like the Rays aren't allowed to compete with the Yanks & Sox. If the Rays do make a threat, the Yankees & Red Sox just open their endless checkbook & go spend more money because they are afraid of the 40 million dollar payroll Rays.

I'm with you here, Rub. I would like nothing more than to see the Rays repeat and win the AL pennant. I'm rooting for them... then, maybe, the salary cap doesn't even become an issue.

True! Maybe the salary cap issue would go away if that happened again, however, I'm still in favor of a salary cap in baseball, so that the Yankees & Red Sox can't spend all of that money. I know about the whole luxury tax thing. The argument that the Yankees pay so much in luxury tax to other teams, however, I like what Torii Hunter said about that. Giving 27 million dollars total to other teams is like the average man giving 27 dollars to someone who might be a little less fortunate.
