There's no one in the NL who can take down these Cardinals and -while the AL is more of a crapshoot - I'd say there's about a 40% chance the Sox make it in. Give another 40% to the Indians and 20% to the rest.

There is no juggernaut this year - it's a good year for baseball.


Care to specify which Sox? :-?

The Tribe won't have Arthur Rhodes for the rest of the year, according to ESPN. This has to hurt their chances at a title - he's been terrific this year. Although, he's barely played over the past month, and they've been doing just fine. But the loss could bite them in the playoffs. That's tough if you're Cleveland.

Its a good thing for them if he'd have to face the Yankees. They destroy him every single time. :-b

Very unlikely though, because NY AND Cleveland would both have to make it. :-°

Good point. It's so rare that the White Sox do anything at all, I just forgot about them. I meant the Red Sox.

The White Sox pitching has been their strength all year. But they aren't this good. The funny thing? If they still had Carlos Lee I'd probably take them for the WS favorite. With Scotty Podsednick, though, I can't see them making it much farther than the first round.

I think you are confused, the playoffs are a little different than the regular season. The Padres would actually need to win more games than they lose to succeed in the playoffs. :-D

You want 18 to 1 odds? Boy, that's really showing confidence in your team. Are you saying that you think that your team has a 6% chance of winning?
