I've watched all the so called experts make their picks over the last few days. Oddly enough, most of them picked the Braves to win the NL pennant. One odd Cubs pick, and maybe a Mets pick, but I don't think so. I too like the Braves for the NL, and my heart tells me to pick the Mariners in the AL, but my head says the Indians finally get it done. From the wild card slot. I won't bet it, but I just wrote it down anyway. I for one will enjoy this season more than most in the recent past, in part because I don't have to watch Barry Bonds anymore. At least I hope not. Hope springs eternal this time of year, and I can't wait to watch much more baseball. The best game on the planet by far. With golf a close second. I don't care if it's the Rays and the Royals. It's just an intense game, pitch by pitch. Gonna try to get back to Seattle for a serie or two this summer. Love that stadium, and that is my team. It's only 1000 miles from MC to Seattle. Check it out people. It's a great trip.
