I predict that I won't be watching the playoffs this year. I could care less who wins so long as it's not the Cubs. They don't deserve it.

Go Bulls!

Dye helps LAD pass SD.
Bonds breaks the record and is signed by the Yankees in the offseason.
Arod opts out and is signed by the Rangers for 33 million a year over 7 years
Hicks recieves multiple death threats to the point where he hires personal security services.
Mark Cuban purchases the Cubs.

I would actually be very happy if that was the team the Sox sent out for 2008. they would be a very young team with a ton of potential.

Indeed. People need to accept that the holes on this team are so large and the farm system so barren that signing a bunch of second-tier free agents may not be enough to contend again in '08. It would be an exciting team. Baseball is becoming a young man's game, with the absence of amphetamines and steroids. You need fresh players to survive. The Sox would be wise to invest in more youth and athleticism. That team would provide a lot of that.

The Yankees will get a little closer, but they're just too old and have too many teams to pass this year.

Philly has a habit of making late runs, but they have a lot of pitching injuries. They're a fun team to watch when they're hot.

Predictions-

AL Central- Detroit Tigers
AL West- Anaheim Angels

(The Tribe will fall just short as the Twins catch fire in the 2nd half as they always do)

NL Central- Milwaukee Brewers
NL East- New York Mets
NL West- LA Dodgers
NL Wild Card- Philadelphia Phillies

(Cubs wilt in September, Phillies catch fire in the 2nd half and add a starting pitcher)

World Series- Boston Red Sox vs. New York Mets ('86 Rematch only this time, Boston wins)

Go Bulls!

That's how I felt last season. I was so mad, upset, and most certainly, BORED. VERY VERY BORED. In fact, I just got home from a Bulls pre-season game and saw the Cards/Tigers game with 2 outs to go.
