Why not have a homer thread?

Who are the guys you are really rooting for on your team this year?

Me. It's Matt Carpenter and Tyler Greene, and Carpenter is having an awesome game today. Really rooting for both of these guys.

lol, please

Derek Sanderson Jeter
Carsten Charles Sabathia
Mariano Rivera

04-15-2012, 04:50 PM
On the Rays, Ben Zobrist is my favorite player there.

I know this is a total homer thread, but it's good to share.

04-15-2012, 04:55 PM
Adam Wainwright & Rafael Furcal

04-15-2012, 04:58 PM
Matthew Cain, Gerald Posey, and Brandon Belt.

04-15-2012, 05:26 PM
I hate the entire Cubs team.

04-15-2012, 05:31 PM
I'm rooting for the hole team for one. :)

Heyward, Freeman, Delgado, Minor, & Pastornicky

I just wish they would go ahead and cut Chad "Proctor" Durbin.

lol, please
04-15-2012, 05:35 PM
I hate the entire Cubs team.:laugh:

04-15-2012, 05:37 PM

04-15-2012, 05:39 PM
I hate the entire Cubs team.

Even Castro?

@ OP
Jon Niese and Ike Davis.

04-15-2012, 06:05 PM
Ricky Romero. Doesn't care about his results, he just battles.
Kyle Drabek. Impossible to hate, cheering for him to bounce back from 2011.
Brett Lawrie. Phenom in the making.
Henderson Alvarez. Like Pedroia said, "he's a felix hernandez reincarnate".

04-15-2012, 06:11 PM
Rasmus, Lawrie, Morrow, and Snider are I think my 4 favourite Jays.

04-15-2012, 06:13 PM
On the Rays, Ben Zobrist is my favorite player there.

I know this is a total homer thread, but it's good to share.


im rooting for the entire yankee pitching staff (mostly Nova, Kuroda, Pineda, Pettitte) and the regressing hitters (Rodriguez & Teixeira)

It's weird becomes even though I'm a Jays fan.. I'm really hoping for Teixeira to have a big year. Always liked him, always will.

04-15-2012, 06:21 PM
Dustin Pedroia. There are other players I like, but no one is close to Pedroia.

04-15-2012, 06:54 PM
Morrow, Alvarez and Lawrie

Jack of Blades
04-15-2012, 07:01 PM
Kinsler and Feliz.

04-15-2012, 07:30 PM
Chase Utley, Doc, Cole Hamels

04-15-2012, 07:44 PM
Always had a man crush on Robinson Cano

04-15-2012, 08:05 PM
Colby Rasmus, JP Arencibia, Jose Bautista and of course Lawrie

04-15-2012, 08:19 PM
Majority of Jays' rotation, Lawrie, Bautista, Arencibia

Straight Edge
04-15-2012, 08:23 PM
Inorder Starlin Castro, Kerry Wood, Matt Garza, and Jeff Samardzija. Also add Rizzo and Brett Jackson when they come up.

04-15-2012, 08:27 PM
Matt Kemp, Clayton Kershaw, AJ Ellis, Dee Gordon

04-15-2012, 08:31 PM

Detroit's Time
04-15-2012, 09:13 PM
Miggy, Verlander, Fielder, Avila, Dotel

04-15-2012, 09:18 PM
I'm rooting for Porcello to turn into the pitcher I thought we were getting when we drafted him.

I'm rooting for Scherzer to become more consistent.

Favorite players though are Miggy and Avila.

04-15-2012, 09:30 PM
Melky Cabrera/Tim Lincecum/Brandon Belt

04-15-2012, 09:44 PM
It's weird becomes even though I'm a Jays fan.. I'm really hoping for Teixeira to have a big year. Always liked him, always will.

I actually understand completely. I loved Teixeira even before he was a yankee, ever since I saw him barrel over Posada in 2006 (I am a big fan of Posada)... I just loved his intensity.

Guy has a great attitude... i hate his new uppercut swing, trying to drive everything... but I like him in general and wish him well

04-15-2012, 09:53 PM
David Wright, Ike Davis, Johan Santana, R.A Dickey, Lucas Duda, Daniel Murphy, Ruben Tejada, and every other Met besides Jason Bay and Manny Acosta they can go **** themselves

04-15-2012, 10:00 PM
Matt Garza, great pitcher on a bad team. Love his emotion to the game, unlike Zambrano he uses his emotion to help him.
Starlin Castro, young stud. Hard to not root for your team's franchise player.
Kerry Wood, so much history with the Cubs. I do not think one Cubs fan isnt rooting for him.

04-15-2012, 10:18 PM
Starlin n garza r my favorite n the rest could go **** themselves and once rizzo n jackson get called up they 2 will be my favorites

04-15-2012, 10:27 PM
Darnell McDonald, because he reminds me of how I would do if I were in the Majors. Other than that I don't really have a favorite Red Sox player. Pedroia is probably closest followed by Daniel Bard.

04-15-2012, 11:40 PM
Matt Cain and Freddy Sanchez.

04-16-2012, 12:33 AM
Liking the ones that are young, talented and have potential to develop into all-stars. Brett Lawrie, Colby Rasmus, Henderson Alvarez & Kyle Drabek.

Mr Haha
04-16-2012, 12:46 AM
Derek Jeter and Mariano Rivera. It's nice to know that I got to see the entire careers of two all-time Yankee legends who will have their own statues in Monument Park someday. Until they retire, can't see anyone coming close to how hard I pull for those two.

04-16-2012, 01:05 AM
Madison Bumgarner and Melky Cabrera. I have both of them on my fantasy team, so when they kickass they make me happy twice;)

04-16-2012, 02:43 AM
BMac, Jeff Francoeur, Tim Hudson, Smoltz, Brooks Conrad.

04-16-2012, 04:29 AM
Alvarez, Escobar, Encarnacion, McGowan

Freel for prez
04-16-2012, 06:30 AM
Matt Carpenter and Tyler Greene are your favorite players? That's weak. I'll go with Brandon Phillips (ha! knew you'd like that one) Joey Votto, and Mat Latos...expecting big things

Pinstripe pride

04-16-2012, 01:27 PM
JD Martinez, Jose Altuve, Brian Bogusevic and Jason Castro. Even if Bogie will strike out on an inside fastball every time. I like Jordan Lyles too, but he's in the minors right now.

Most of my favorite Astros are either retired or on other teams now.

04-16-2012, 01:29 PM
Matthew Ryan Kemp

Andre Ethier and Tony Gwynn Jr too

long ball
04-16-2012, 01:32 PM
Prince is my favorite player.

Now that he's on the tigers ricke weeks is my favorite brewer.

04-16-2012, 01:42 PM
Chase Utley, Cole Hamels, Halladay, Cliff Lee, Hunter Pence

Really hoping Chase is smarter about handling his knees and has a better year. Any of the aces can win 20 games this year depending on the offensive production. Pence is going to have a monster year (hopefully haha)

04-16-2012, 01:45 PM
Ian Kennedy,Justin Upton, Ryan "Tatman" Roberts.

04-16-2012, 01:51 PM
I'm rooting for the entire Cubs team but mainly for Bryan LaHair, I hope he has a good year.

04-16-2012, 03:53 PM
Hoping for big years from Strasburg, Zimmerman, Werth and Harper when he comes up.

04-16-2012, 04:11 PM
Gavin Floyd has been my favorite White Sox player since he got into the rotation for us. When his stuff is on, it is some of the best in baseball. Sadly, he's probably the most inconsistent pitcher in baseball, and seems to very rarely bring that electric stuff to the ballpark with him. :sigh:

I'm hoping for a huge season from Jake Peavey, because he will be very important to any hopes we might have of winning the division.

I'm cheering for Dyan Viciedo because I love the idea of one of our young prospects finally panning out and being great. I need someone who is worth my investing in their uniform.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Gordon Beckham won't suck. :pity:

Dustin Pedroia and Matt Kemp are my favorite players in the MLB. Been a huge fan of both since day 1.

04-16-2012, 05:36 PM
Yadier Molina

04-16-2012, 06:09 PM
Derek Jeter, Robinson Cano, Curtis Granderson, CC Sabathia, Ivan Nova, David Robertson, Brett Gardner, Nick Swisher, Andy Pettitte.

04-17-2012, 04:14 PM
Andre Ethier and Chad Billingsley

04-17-2012, 05:45 PM
Ian Kinsler, Derek Holland and Elvis Andrus are my favorite Rangers.
Josh Hamilton, Koji Uehara and Mark Lowe are my least favorite. (for extra credit)

04-18-2012, 01:10 AM
Wieters is easily my favorite. Reimold is a very hard worker and never has gotten a great everyday chance to start and it looks like he may get it this year and is taking advantage of it so far. Jones and Arrieta are also on my list.

04-18-2012, 01:24 AM
Snider, Rasmus, Drabek, Lawrie, Bautista, Morrow, Santos... I honestly like most of the jays roster except for Arencibia, Thames and Lind

04-18-2012, 03:34 AM
Alex Rodriguez, Nova, and Teixeira.
