    This is a thread to post the results of our awful and brilliant predictions. But it's mostly for me to gloat about one I'm going to get right.

    Regarding your claim on abundant pitchers with 3.00 or below ERA at season's end, I would place the over /under at 3 pitcher's....and it may not get that high. Injuries could take the toll. Furthermore, all sub 3.00 ERA's will come from the NL, if they occur.


    Currently 17 starting pitchers have ERAs under 3.00. 5 out of the 17 are from the AL.

    Wondering which teams you predict as most likely to contend in the world series.

    AL: Yanks with the Twins in a distant 2nd
    NL: Phillies with the Reds in a close 2nd

    Phillies have the best pitching staff in the league and are the most complete team which leads me to believe they will win the Series this year. Plus I will be cheering hard for Halladay and Oswalt, two of my favourite pitchers, to win their first Series' each.

    I don't see the Padres, Giants, Rays, Braves or Rangers doing much of anything in the post-season.

    Also, which teams will finish the season recognized as 'most improved'?

    Not in their league.

    I guess the Padres could be in that class too. I still think they stink though unlike the Reds who will be around for at least a little while longer, like the Rays of a few years back.

    I predict the Mariners will suck again next year, and every year after until the end of time.

    So, bbar, what's your perception of the essence of the Mariners' cluster of problems?

    What makes them stink to high heaven yesterday, today and for the future's sake?
