Ray, people will come Ray. They'll come to Iowa for reasons they can't even fathom. They'll turn up your driveway not knowing for sure why they're doing it. They'll arrive at your door as innocent as children, longing for the past. Of course, we won't mind if you look around, you'll say. It's only $20 per person. They'll pass over the money without even thinking about it: for it is money they have and peace they lack. And they'll walk out to the bleachers; sit in shirtsleeves on a perfect afternoon. They'll find they have reserved seats somewhere along one of the baselines, where they sat when they were children and cheered their heroes. And they'll watch the game and it'll be as if they dipped themselves in magic waters. The memories will be so thick they'll have to brush them away from their faces.

People will come Ray. The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. The hard... is what makes it great.

Michael Squints Palledorous walked a little taller that day. And we had to tip our hats to him. He was lucky she hadn't beat the *crap* out of him. We wouldn't have blamed her. What he'd done was sneaky, rotten, and low... and cool. Not another one among us would have ever in a million years even for a million dollars have the guts to put the move on the lifeguard. He did. He had kissed a woman. And he had kissed her long and good. We got banned from the pool forever that day. But every time we walked by after that, the lifeguard looked down from her tower, right over at Squints, and smiled.

I'm really liking the Tribe's chances this year, with Sizemore back in the lineup...

It's much more exciting to me when you get a group of people who are coming up to you.....really really excited about it. And then there are other people who walk out literally saying that was the worst movie I've ever seen. Having those two extremes to me is the mark of the type of movie that I want to make.

AL East - NY Yankees
Improved from last year when they won the best division in baseball

AL Central - Tigers
Duh. Easiest division to predict. They should have this wrapped up sometime in August

AL West - Angels
Did anyone improve more than these guys?

AL Wildcard - Texas
Still pretty good. Angels are better though

AL Wildcard - Redsux
Hate to pick em but w/ 2 WCs I find it hard to imagine them not getting in


NL East - Phillies
Lotsa decent teams in the east, but the Phillies are still the best team in the NL.

NL Central - Cards
I think St Louis will still be good. Obviously Beltran doesn't make up for it, but the rest of the division hasn't exactly gotten stronger.

NL West - Dbacks
Not really sure why these guys are good but they did crush the division last year and signed some new players so sure.

NL Wildcard - Braves
IDK, the rest of the NL is pretty bad.

NL Wildcard - Nationals
Why Not?


Playoffs:

Play-in games
- Texas over Boston
- Nats over Braves

Division Series
- Yankees over Texas
- Tigers over Angels
- Phillies over Nats
- Cards over Dbacks

LCS
- Yankees over Tigers
- Phillies over Cards

WS
- Yankees over Phillies

Heh, this was my thought too. I thought that was the Indians' 3-4 from the mid-90s.

Mid-90s? Sizemore was playing when he was 11?

4.) - Yankees over Phillies
1. Yes

2. I may hate their guts, but I don't see why you forget the potent power STILL offered up by Milwaukee--that team is still going to be a threat or at least a distraction to the Cards. That's even without me going so far as to bring up their toying with outfield scoreboards...*lol* /tonyrage. Not to mention their pitching.

3.) No. At least though, they'll look at the Cardinals and rethink laughing us off as a lackluster lineup--mind you, even without 'he who's name shall not be spoketh'.

4.) Yawn.

5.) I think Cleveland owes the Cardinals an apology for Jason Westbrook.

JJD - I still don't think the Angels get there, but I can see how they'd be the popular pick. Rangers still have the best lineup and the pitching staff just has to be good enough, which I think it will. CJ is not a good pitcher and I think the Angels will regret that contract.

Red Sox might also miss too. The way they derailed last year bothers me. Tampa should take them.

ALCS should be Yankees vs Rangers. NLCS Phillies vs ???.

Play Austin's boy Brandon Belt and you'll win more games. Play Huff and the Giants get all the misery they deserve.

Jake Westbrook is serviceable. Also, he won a World Series game. Don't be a mad bro!
