The Cubs have a decent offense, but I don't trust their pitching.

And the D-backs have excellent pitching, but they can't hit.

In our last 5 games we've played the White Sox and currently Detroit and we're 4-1 with our starting 5 averaging 8.04 IP per game. Nobody can touch our pitching staff right now, nobody. We have the best staff in the game right now.

Arizona's third in the NL in runs scored.

Then they must be getting a lot of walks and hits in the clutch, because their overall batting avg. and power numbers aren't that great.

arizona had a hot start from the plate and have cooled off considerably... still better than they were last year, but that's not saying much.

top it with the fact that nobody can hit in the NL, and yea... there ya go. 3rd in runs.

But the point is, everything is relative. So, they have solid pitching, and better hitting than most teams in the NL.....thus, they're legit contenders, that's my only point here. Cubs are too. I'd not want to face Webb/Haren/Owings/Johnson in a short series. Hell, they went to the NLCS last season and are only getting better.

But, yes, I agree that the only true "great" team in baseball is the Red Sox. Fuckers.

I agree, they are legitimate contenders for the NL pennant.

As for a world championship? Unlikely at this point, although you never know.

And the Red Sox can't be considered great until they learn to win consistently on the road.

anyone can get hot at the right time and get it done... see the cardinals in 2006. but if i had to guess i'd say the red sox will win it again. unless eli manning decides to play baseball. then i'd have to go with whatever team he's on.
