yeah i like the pads too, mostly because of the park though :-D

Yeah, true, and what you said about Peavy can be applied to Linebrink. Chronically misused last year to the point that Liney was only hitting 90 MPH whereas he routinely hits 94/95 most of the time. Now with Bochy not here to misuse him in '07, along with a successful pitching coach like Bud Black handling the managerial duties, it seems evident to expect bounce-back seasons. We also upgraded our bullpen with Bell, Ring, Brown, Strickland, etc. Our staff got better, no doubt, and that's with being #1 in a 5x5 format to begin with.

i think the odds of linebrink being in SD when the season starts are slim to none

I think odds are he starts here. Once he gets off to a solid start, shows that he's better than his '06 statistics, and once Boston realizes just how poor their closer situation is, he'll be dealt. But I think KT realizes that Linebrink's peak value won't be realized into slightly into '07; at that point he's probably gone. It'll also be a lot easier to see our team needs as well as better access his expendability.

Co-signed.

No one on that team is a superb-standout-drop-dead-Ace the likes of Santana, Oswalt or Chris Carpenter. But collectively, none of them are bad. Their bullpen contains some great pitchers. This is why the Padres came in second place in best team ERA. The Tigers collectively have a very solid group. Other numbers:
1st - ERA
5th - Hits given up
8th - BB's
5th - Saves
5th - Saves
21st - K's (not so good here)

Therefore, the Padres & Tigers should be the two teams that are highest on your list! ;-D

well if you go by ERA instead of adjusted ERA, you have to take NL teams. The lineups are ao weak that average pitchers become all stars.

If we were talking actual talent the best teams would be the Red Sox, Tigers, and Angels.

Agree with NL teams.

Dodgers or Padres both have good staffs, good parks, and a historically weak league. What more do you want?
