last year SI had the Cubs on the cover and we know what happened to them....

So for 2005 SI puts 2 teams on the cover.

Must be that so called East Coast bias :rolleyes:

When I get this in my mail (yes, I do get SI), I just may throw it directly in the trash without even looking at it. It will be the same old stuff anyways.

The Twins may hold off the Indians, but they'll never catch the Sox!

I see they're buying into the hype about the Indians as well.

Maybe neither team will make the playoffs this year.

Where is Cleveland keeping all the toons' Kool-Aid? Will there be a puking hole if what we want to happen happens? Seriously, Cleveland is one of two teams I really want to see fall flat on their faces this year. The Mets are the second one. I know the popular one is the Cubs, they can too.

Wow, watch an episode of Baseball Tonight or Sportscenter and tell me there's no east coast bias.

I might have put that in an optimistic pink . . .

A year without the Yankees or BoSox in the playoffs? ESPN wouldn't know what to do with itself. I can just imagine one of their stories being "How the Yanks and Red Sox look to succeed next season" during the week of the World Series.

By Tom Verducci!

the same Tom Verducci that "Was a Blue Jay"

I can hardly wait...

I wonder if they even gave a page to the White Sox.

Twins hold off Indians...from their firm grasp on second place.

You know, I can't wait til the Sox pummel the both of those bastards. Indians, schmindians. Last year was a fluke, they're gonna regress now. Watch.

these are some of the same "experts" and morons who picked the Royals to win last year and we all know how well that turned out....:?:

I don't agree with picking the Tribe for second.As Harry Caray
once asked former sCrUBS manager Tom Trebelhorn:

"Where's the pitching??"

CC Sabathia is starting the season on the DL (thank God!!The Sox
have a difficult time even making contact against him),Jake Westbrook
doesn't impress me,Cliff Lee doesn't scare me and unless Kevin Millwood
pitches the way he did his first few seasons in Atlanta,there is NO
way the Sox finish lower than second place.

In the article talking about lineups they mention that Ozzie last year was so fed up with the lineup cards that Showalter produced with so much useless info that he went out to the plate with a lineup card that had the players photos and email addresses on it

Sports Illustrated really went out on a limb this year with their Yankees and Braves in the World Series prediction.
