Look at how close we are to Mesopotamia! That's awesome. I wouldn't want it any other way.

The AL Central: Home of 2 teams with 0% chance of making the World Series!

Garcia is the Euphrates and Eaton is the Tigris.

Or something.

Are we really going to be that bad? I thought we'd be pretty close to .500. Maybe be 8 or 10 games better than last year.

I think we'll be pretty bad, but I have a hard time accepting that the Marlins, cubs, and Astros have a better chance of making the post-season than the Sox. Unfortunately those are the only three teams I can say that about.

At least with the Marlins and Cubs, I think it is less to do with us and more to do with the fact that the AL is a lot more top-heavy than the NL.

Especially with giving the Cards the best odds to make the playoffs. I don't think the Cubs have any chance at being a wild card team.

I'd love to see the actual odds that the Sox make the postseason. It could be worth putting $10 or $20 on and hoping we get a couple guys to break out and maybe Danks/Dunn can be worth something this year.
