Lets see...last 8 games againsy the so called dominant AL West...7 wins, 1 loss. 3-0 vs the "dominant" Angels. 2-1 vs the Rangers (everybody slips once in a while) 2-0 thus far against the Al west leading Athletics, with Pedro hurling tonite.
Last week the Sox got Lackey, Sele and Colon. In the playoffs they'll get Colon, Escobar and Washburn. And they'll have to play a game or two in Anaheim.

See the point you're missing is that the playoff teams in the AL will be: Yankees, Red Sox, Twins, Athletics.
Your starting lineup for Pebble Beach on Oct 4 will include several Angels' players, but not your starting lineup for any MLB playoff games.

And wasn't Sele like 8-1 before the Sox roughed him up last week? So instead of an .800(8-2) pitcher like Sele, you pin your hopes on a .500 pitcher (9-9) like Escobar...he's a superior alternative?? It might be fun if you guys did make the playoffs.

Oh you're right, let me jump on the 60-77 Mets bandwagon instead, they're playing such impressive ball these days.

Lets see, they have this column in the standings for last 10 games, the Red Sox are a paltry 9-1 and the Amazin' Mets are a robust 0-10. Yes your team is less "misery"-able than mine.

being a met fan is extremely frustrating... no question. that's why the highlight of my sports year so far was when fred wilpon walked past me and my friend as we were exiting shea and we got to curse and yell at him while his security guards just stood there and laughed... ahhhh now that was livin'.

i don't get excited over the mets... even in the start of the season. i don't know if i ever will get excited over their title chances until fred wilpon actually sells the team. but hey... i'm gonna root for 'em anyway.

but hey... at least we've won a world series in my life time...

Nah, he was a failure when he ran the Rangers, traded away Sosa.

central- cubs
west- arizona
wild card- houston astros

AL MVP- vlad guerrero
NL MVP- richie sexson

AL Cy Young- roy halliday
NL Cy Young- roy oswalt

playoffs:
AL
yankees over royals
red sox over angels

yankees over red sox... red sox nation commit mass suicide
NL
cubs over philllies
astros over d-backs

astros over cubs... cubs fans blow up an andy pettite bobble head doll, laugh it off and say "wait till next year."

world series
astros over yankees... geroge kill himself
well... even though i now think it'll be astros angels, i guess i'm gonna have to stick by my original pick of astros over yankees

OK, while we're all patting ourselves on the back, note that I too predicted the AL exactly...yes Pub, I predicted your Angies would win the west, now they will lose the ALDS.
