Just put the Phillies in the spot occupied by the Muts and you will be correct.

I think the Braves win the NL East, I don't think I can bet against them because they always seem to get the job done untill the postseason. I would have Cardinals ahead of Cubs and Astros, and Giants and Padres ahead of Dodgers. Playoffs are all about pitching and I like the Chisox chances vs anybody in baseball. The one team that always seems to give them trouble is Oakland though, so if anybody knocks them off I think it'll be the A's

The white sox will win it again.

theres no way the red sox finish ahead of the blue jays.

Everyone is picking the Jays over the Sox.. Just remember that without Schilling or Foulke last year we won 95 games and the Jays just 80... Both teams got better in the offseason but did the Jays really get 15 games better with the additions of Ryan, Burnett, Glaus, Overbay.. I will believe it when I see it..

I'm picking the Mets last in the NL East.

Not because I really believe that, but because I believe my baseball predictions are eternally cursed and doomed to have the exact opposite come true. I'm like the character Mush in "A Bronx Tale".

Incidentally, on a totally unrelated note, I'm picking the Yankees over the Braves in the World Series.

NO WAY NJ!!!!! Didn't you hear we fired our GM, Ed Wade? He was the one who lost Scott Rolen to the Cardinals, and made countless other stupid trades.....Wade is the Wanny/Speilman of Baseball GM's. :tantrum:

Agreed, like you said I'll believe it when I see it. Don't get me wrong I think the Jays are a very good team (in fact I actually think that they'll be in first place for the 1st half of the year ala the O's last year) but I don't think they're overall better than the Red Sox or Yankees.

Right, even last year when the Yankees were struggling I was hoping they wouldn't make a run but I knew it was gonna happen. It's not that the Jays don't have a chance it's just that everyone is used to seeing the Yankees and BoSox as the top two teams in East and even when they do struggle it's almost as if fans are just waiting for them to turn it around. The same thing goes for the A's and Braves of recently. The A's have become a great 2nd half team, and the Braves just find a way to be good enough to win the division but not good enough to win in the playoffs. I would love to see a postseason without the Yankees or Red Sox, but I wouldn't bet on it. Although I think only one of those teams will make it this year.

I'm sure you're not the only one who feels that way. I agree I think it would be great if the Yankees didn't make the playoffs this year :wink:

I wish someone from the NL East would beat the Braves because I'm sick of seeing them make it to the playoffs only to roll over and die. Both the Braves and Yankees have been in the playoffs forever. The Braves since 1991 and the Yankees since 1995 (although it would be 94 if there was no strike).

People have been saying that the last 3 seasons. Winning the division is what the Braves do, they own the rest of the East.

Call me when the Mets get a starting rotation. And I mean a full one.
Pedro - Money. The toe is going to be an issue but hes looked like Pedro when hes thrown.
Glavine - coming off a great 2nd half where he relearned how to pitch inside again.
Trachsel - He is what he is. id feel better if we had a better #3 but I can live with 200 IP and a 4ish era which is what he usually gives.
Zambrano - Hate him more than any Met not just because we gave up Kazmir to get him but because he sucks. A candidate for: 14-12-4.25-170k's and the triple crown...Wild pitches, hit batters, walks.
Bannister - Crafty 25 year old rookie with 4 legit pitches (based on scouting and spring training anyway). Obviously has to prove himself but has both the work ethic and bloodlines (Son of former Orioles SP Floyd Bannister).

And uber-prospect Mike Pelfrey should be up by August at which point hopefully Zambrano will be moved to Iceland for extra pine tar.
