I don't either. Think back to the glory days of 2005. The same cherry-picking was done with the White Sox who, we were reminded, had a losing record against potential playoff teams. And indeed, they did have losing regular season records against the Red Sox and Angels. And we know how that one turned out, of course-they blew first place and choked away the biggest lead in baseball history, just as the Chicago media predicted.
"Message to all WSIers who think that Thomas will be a first-or-second ballot Hall of Famer-with guys like Telander holding the "Keys to the Kingdom" and openly campaigning against the DH-I will be kind and say You Are Dreaming. Thomas and his supporters are going to have to shout his case from the rooftops before the BBWAA finally gets the message. " -Some Dope on WSI, 2/13/2010. Whoops, that was me.
Then again, I think I have a promising career as a TV psychic. John Edward, watch out!
