So its mid season now and with the all star game festivities over I’m going to rate some teams on how they did in the first half.
Los Angeles Dodgers – with great position players ( I can name a couple off the top of my head Martin, Loney, O-dog, Furcal, that guy from Cleveland, Ethier, Kemp, and Manny) sorry if I misspelled anyones name. Anyway Joe Torre has done a great job with this team. Young Clayton Kershaw is doing terrific. They have a reliable closer in Jonathan Broxton. You can expect everyone in their line up to get a hit. This = Best record in baseball. My prediction
Best – World series, Worst – NLDS
Boston Red Sox – Lets start with pitching. They have Beckett, Wakefeild, Lester, Smoltz, Penny, and the occasional Dice K. They have one of the most reliable bullpens, and of course Jonathan Paplebon. (sorry if I misspelled that) So ya they have the best pitching staff. Hitting has never been to much of a problem for the Red sox. We will see how this whole shortstop situation will work out, otherwise they should take advantage of the trade deadline. My prediction, Best - World Series, Worst - ALCS
Their are not any other stand out teams, The Phillies are going to win their division only because, they have no challenger. The Mets are falling apart (again), the Marlins need another year before they are contenders. The Braves you never now. The Nationals……..
