I predict in game 7 of the World Series (Tigers vs Dodgers) a fight will break out between Joe Buck and a random overweight masked fan. The nationally broadcasted fight spills onto the field. Jim Ross suddenly appears in the booth next to McCarver. All of America goes wild as Joe Buck is getting his ass handed to him in the middle of the field. Yasiel Puig runs in from center field to intervene and choke slams the masked luchador. Miguel Cabrera unmasks the mysterious hero to reveal Jose Valverde. Dave Dombrowski signs Valverde to a 30 minute contract on the spot as he goes on to close the game with Buck's dead body still lying on the ground. The Tigers go on to win the Series through the heroics of the now legendary World Series MVP Papa Grande.

A's sweep Dodgers in 4. Revenge from 88, and Moneyball finally pays off to its fullest, over the west coast Yankees, to boot.

God that would be sweet.

"thepjguy" -- You've got 13 teams playing more than 162 regular season games, and a few more with only 161...the OCD in me had to come out there, sorry!

As far as predictions go, it really is a toss-up this year and the 2nd wild card has gotten so many more teams in the chase. I'll say Tigers over Pirates in 5

Yeah that's my bad I had no calculator lol. But yes I could see that happening.

I think the Braves will surprise some folks and run away with the NL East....

I'm not sure... haha

Astros over LLWS team Japan.

You know, now that I think about it, I think the Japanese kids would take care of the Astros. JPN in 7.

AL East

Boston Red Sox - 95 - 67

Tampa Bay Rays - 91 - 73

Baltimore O's - 90 - 74

NY Yankees - 83 - 79

Toronto Blue Jays - 64 - 98

Blue Jays going 8-24 for the rest of the season?? I highly doubt that. A team with a .459 winning percentage will not go .250. Not even Houston's overall season is that bad. Try 70 - 92 at worst, 78 - 84 at best.

Aye, but '88 was revenge for '74 as far as the Dodgers were concerned.
