BB51's Midseason Predictions 2k6

Postby BronXBombers51 » Wed Jul 05, 2006 9:28 pm

Yup, it's time...

We're halfway through the 2006 season and almost nothing has been decided. We've got alot of close races that are sure to become even more heated through the dog days of summer.

Now if you're like me and your preseason predictions look like crapola, now's your chance to redeem yourself and make your best guesses for the second half of the season. Feel free to post your final standings for 2006, playoff matchups and World Series winner. You can predict the award winners for the season as well (MVP, Cy, ROY, etc.)

I'm working on mine and should have them up shortly.
;-)

AL

Yeah well if the Yanks do not do something about a 4th and 5th starter they will be watching the playoffs from the golf course in October. You can't win when you have 2 reliable SPs, a number 3 that pitches like a #5 (RJ) and a 4 and 5 that on a good day manage to get to the 4th inning and who just blow out the bullpen.

And if they are depending on Carl Pavano to save them, well I just have to cry and scream for Cashman's head.
