San Diego Padres (61-101) 34.5 Games Back

New York Yankees (101-61)
Texas Rangers (90-73)
The Scoop: Rangers surprised a LOT of people this year (including me) and I think it will continue here. If you look at the past few years it almost looks like the "Curse of the Bambino" has transferred to the Yankees. The Yankees haven't won a series in the playoffs since 2004. The same year the Red Sox won it. Rangers in 5.

Los Angeles Angels (95-67)
Detroit Tigers (92-70)
The Scoop: Pitching conquers hitting in the playoffs, and that would be the Tigers in this case. Even though the Angels offense would crush the Tigers offense this year, The Tigers pitching has been far superior this year, and when it comes down to a 5 game series I'd take Verlander (3.29 ERA), Jackson (2.85), Washburn (3.18), Porcello (4.21) and Gallaraga (5.16) over Weaver (3.89 ERA), Lackey (4.00), Sullivan (5.91), Santana (6.25) and Bell (5.91). Tigers in 4.

Colorado Rockies (96-67)
Philadelphia Phillies (90-72)
The Scoop: As you saw with the Rangers, I like Cinderella story's. The Phillies have too much experience. Their the defending champs, and they won't go down easy. Phillies in 3.

St. Louis Cardinals (94-68)
Los Angeles Dodgers (95-68)
The Scoop: Manny Ramirez is a man on a mission... well, at least a man running out of time! Cardinals are a team run mostly on the raw power of Albert Pujols, and that doesn't work in the playoffs. Even though the Cards have been rocking the Dodgers this season, I think it'll be a different story in the playoffs. Dodgers in 5.

Detroit Tigers (95-71)
Texas Rangers (93-75)
The Scoop: The Tigers have dominated the Rangers in the season series at 7-2. The combined score has been 56-32! Not to mention, the two Detroit losses came by their worst pitcher and by a pitcher who was subsequently traded for Jarrod Washburn! In the Cardinals case the reason I had that turn around in the playoffs was because the Cardinals are a 1 man team. The Rangers arn't. Therefore... Tigers in 5.

Philadelphia Phillies (93-72)
Los Angeles Dodgers (98-70)
The Scoop: The Phillies are not as good as last year. The Dodgers are better. Manny Ramirez will lead his team to a world series berth. This is somewhat a hunch, but... Dodgers in 7.

Detroit Tigers (99-72)
Los Angeles Dodgers (102-73)
The Scoop: In past years, most winners of the World Series have lost before they won. If you look at each teams current 25 man roster, these are the players that have been to a World Series (minimum 10 games for pitchers, 35 games for position players)...

SP Edwin Jackson (2008 Rays)
SP Justin Verlander (2006 Tigers)
SP Jarrod Washburn (2002 Angels)
SP/RP Zach Miner (2006 Tigers)
RP Bobby Seay (2006 Tigers)
CP Fernando Rodney (2006 Tigers)
1B Miguel Cabrera (2003 Marlins)
2B Placido Polanco (2006 Tigers)
3B Brandon Inge (2006 Tigers)
SS Adam Everett (2005 Astros)
IF Ramon Santiago (2006 Tigers)
LF Carlos Guillen (2006 Tigers)
CF Curtis Granderson (2006 Tigers)
RF Magglio Ordonez (2006 Tigers)
DH Marcus Thames (2006 Tigers)

TOTAL: 15 of 25

SP/RP Jeff Weaver (2003 Yankees)
C Brad Ausmus (2005 Astros)
LF Juan Pierre (2003 Marlins)
LF Manny Ramirez (1995 Indians, 1997 Indians, 2004 Red Sox, 2007 Red Sox)

Total: 4 of 25

Way more experience on the Tigers... Tigers in 6.



Whatcha think and what are yours?

Heading into the final stretch of the season, what are your final predictions?
Ten points for most correct answers
Yankees/Red Sox
Orioles/White Sox

Tie breaker: How many total runs will be scored in the Giants/Rockies game?

Who will win today's games?
Here are mine (You don't have to provide and explanation if you want to do it quickly):

NL East: Phillies - Even if they start to trip at the finish line, they still have two seires with the Nationals and Mets each.

NL Centrral: Cardinals - I think with the moves for DeRosa, Holliday, and Lugo, they've really made themselves a world series contender. Smoltz may even find his niche in relief somewhere.

NL West: Dodgers - This was tough. There schedule for the rest of the season is hot and cold. They face many weak teams such as the Pirates and Nats, but also play tough divisional oppenents as well, the Rockies and Giants. In the end I think they'll pull it out.

NL Wildcard: Giants- This was also tough. Both teams, the Rockies and the Giants have very tough schedules (The former having a slightly tougher one). However, the Giants pitching I think will be too much. Also Freddy Sanchez should start to pay off.

AL East: Yankees - Easy choice, best record in majors and not turning back most likely.

AL Central: White Sox - I have to go with the Sox to pull it out at the end. The Tigers made one of the biggest moves at the deadline when getting Washburn and he hasn't payed off with the exception of one of his four starts. His last start he gave up 4 homers. I think he'll help the Tigers tank every 5 days.

AL West: Angels - Gotta go with the Angels. Batting about .290 as a team. Amazing. I actually saw one box score where all their starters had a .300 average at the end of the game.

AL Wildcard: Rangers - It came down to the Red Sox, Rangers, and Rays. I picked the Rangers because they have an insanely easier schedule than the other two teams.

Fun bit o' info: The Phillies pitchers were flat out incredible in the D-Backs series. Here is why:

1. All winning pitchers had two hits each.
2. A combined 5 pitchers gave up 5 runs (4 earned) in the 3 games.
3. Last but not least, there was not a single walk given up by the Phillies in the three games.I apologize for being so long winded.@Fungo - I hope that's not sarcasm I hear.

What does your playoff bracket look like?
Is it because their pitching is more awesomer than yours? Is it because they're offense is clutch and very productive compared to yours? Haha!!!! SF Giants 2009 World Series Champions!!! I really don't see any team beating us even the screwed up Mannywoods. Watch, the score today will be Giants 15, Phillies 0. Zito will strikeout 18 and pitch a 80 pitch complete game!!! PHILLIES SUCK, DODGERS SUCK, CUBS SUCK, CARDINALS SUCK, AND GIANTS RULE!!!! Pablo "The Panda" will win MVP and Lincecum and Cain will be co Cy Young winners. Sandoval will win NLCS and World series MVP. So who's the team to beat now huh?

Why is it the Giants are the team to beat in the MLB?
Toronto Blue Jays vs. Tampa Bay Rays

San Diego Padres 83-79
Arizona Diamondbacks 80-82
San Francisco Giants 73-89

Boston Red Sox (102-60)
Detroit Tigers (86-77)
The Scoop: In 2006, how were the tigers expected to do? terribly. what did the tigers do in the begining of the season? win. How were the tigers expected to play before this season? terribly. What have they done so far? win. In 2006, who expected the Tigers to beat the Yankees in the ALDS? No one. Who won the 2006 ALDS? The Tigers. Who would you expect to win this series? The Red Sox. Who will win this series? Tigers in 5.

Texas Rangers (91-71)
New York Yankees (90-72)
The Scoop: In recent years the Yankees have choked in the playoffs. I think the Texas high power offense will be able to shut down the yanks decent pitching and the Ranger pitching will survive the yankees offense. Rangers in 5.

Los Angeles Dodgers (99-63)
Chicago Cubs (90-72)
The Scoop: The Cubbies are due for one. It won't be easy though. Cubs in 5.

New York Mets (95-67)
Colorado Rockies (90-73)
The Scoop: The Rockies had a magical season a few years ago. it's not their year this time. Mets in 3.

Detroit Tigers (89-79)
Texas Rangers (94-73)
The Scoop: So far this year the Tigers have had the Rangers number beating them in the season series 6-0, the combined score of these games has been 38-15. I doubt this will change much. Tigers in 5.

New York Mets (98-67)
Chicago Cubs (93-74)
The Scoop: The Cubs will be mad as hell from their countless failures. I think it'll motivate them. Cubs in 7.

Detroit Tigers (93-80)
Chicago Cubs (97-77)
The Scoop: When you look at past series' the winning team usually has lost one before winning it all. The Cubs have surrounded the series but never been there, the Tigers, however, have. This shows what I mean...

Tigers players (on their 40 man roster) who have been in the World Series before...

- Jeremy Bonderman (2006 Tigers)
- Edwin Jackson (2008 Rays)
- Zach Miner (2006 Tigers)
- Nate Robertson (2006 Tigers)
- Fernando Rodney (2006 Tigers)
- Bobby Seay (2006 Tigers)
- Justin Verlander (2006 Tigers)
- Dontrelle Willis (2003 Marlins)
- Joel Zumaya (2006 Tigers)
- Miguel Cabrera (2003 Marlins)
- Adam Everett (2005 Astros)
- Brandon Inge (2006 Tigers)
- Placido Polanco (2006 Tigers)
- Ramon Santiago (2006 Tigers)
- Curtis Granderson (2006 Tigers)
- Carlos Guillen (2006 Tigers)
- Magglio Ordonez (2006 Tigers)
- Marcus Thames (2006 Tigers)

That totals 18 people with 18 championships!

The Cubs would loo like this...
- Neal Cotts (2005 White Sox)
- Chad Fox (2003 Marlins)
- Ted Lilly (2000 Yankees, 2001 Yankees)
- Derrick Lee (2003 Marlins)
- Aaron Miles (2006 Cardinals)
- Alfonso Soriano (1999 Yankees, 2000 Yankees, 2001 Yankees)

that totals 6 people with 9 championships.

It's the Tigers time. Tigers in 6.


Whatcha think???

Through about 65 games, what are your projected final standings?
mets-yankees--which team will win

red sox phillies--which team will win

dodgers-rangers----winner and final score of game...(tiebreaker pick)

must select before games start.

closest gets the 10 points.

who will win these 3 baseball games today ?
It's kind of ironic how this had turned out, because lots of people assumed it was the strongest in the NL and that there could be no way the NL East wouldn't take the Wild Card. To me, it's very weak, because each team has such glaring holes, whether it's the Mets lack of chemistry and sloppy play, the Phillies horrible starting rotation, extremely questionable closer and below average middle relievers, the Marlins bullpen or lack of discipline at the plate or the Braves inability to score or play consistently. I don't think the Marlins got a shot at this division, judging from how poorly they've played, but the Braves actually are in striking distance and look like they might have a chance. I'd be suprised, from the looks of it right now, if the division winner wins more than 86 games. The NL West seems weak too, but the Dodgers are really taking over that division.Yeah, but the NL East appears to be a bunch of average teams. Being the defending world champs is worthless, if you can't have more than half your rotation give quality starts. It's not even like every other time out either, it's like nearly every start. The Mets probably are just as talented, if not more than the Phillies, but their confidence is shot, the manager is and has appeared to lose his team's respect and they look like a mess. The Marlins and Braves are pretty much average clubs at best, but the Braves look to have deeper pitching with more experience. Add a couple of pieces to that roster and they could take the division. I get what you're saying with the Dodgers though. I'm suprised the D'Backs are playing this poorly, even if Webb is out. LA obviously owns that division, with or without Manny, but I think the NL Central is the most competitive division in the NL and arguably the second most to the AL East, especially since the Cubs haven't turned it on yet.

Is the NL East the weakest division in the National League?
Los Angeles Angels vs. Texas Rangers

Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Florida Marlins

Colorado Rockies vs. Pittsburgh Pirates

Philadelphia Phillies vs. Washington Nationals

Oakland Athletics vs. Detroit Tigers

Arizona Diamondbacks vs. Atlanta Braves

Who do you think is going to win these MLB baseball games? Also what will the score be?
Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Florida Marlins

Colorado Rockies vs. Pittsburgh Pirates

Philadelphia Phillies vs. Washington Nationals

Oakland Athletics vs. Detroit Tigers

Arizona Diamondbacks vs. Atlanta Braves
