My buddy at work and I submit our picks to each other each and every year. We're always way off, but it's fun to give each other grief at the end of the season. Here's mine this year:

NL
East: Mets
Central: Cards
West: Giants
Wild Card: Atlanta

AL
East: Yankees
Central: Cleveland
West: Angels
Wild Card: Toronto

FIGHT!!!!!!

The windup....




And the pitch...

"I know, let's punch him again that might work.  Oh crap here comes Carl Crawford.  He's so fast."





"Okay okay okay I was just clownin' guys don't...agh...not in the...AGHHGHGHGHH!!!"





"Ow...Ow....Ow...."

Ha ha look at the 2 seasoned citizens clapping as Cathwright, Cantu, and Crawford tackle and beat the hell out of Julian Taveras.  They're actually giving an ovation.

That is the biggest girly punch I've ever seen.  Who punches like that?

I'll never forget the muscle-bound 260 lb. Alonzo Mourning slapping like this at center court during a brawl.  Good observation Bug.

He may have been trying to avoid damaging his pitching hand, too. It's far too easy to break a metacarpal with a traditional non-wuss punch. My fifth metacarpal on my right hand can attest to this. ;)

CUBS ARE IN FIRST PLACE!!!! 

It may be the only time I get to type that this season.  So, there it is for 1 or 2 days.

The thing is if they could ever keep Carlos Zambrano, Mark Prior, and Kerry Wood healthy for the season, absolutely nobody would touch them in the NL Central, including the Cardinals.

Oh yeah I know it.  This is the rotation if healthy:   

Zambrano
Kerry Wood
Mark Prior
Wade Miller
Greg Maddux

Now it's: 

Zambrano
Glendon Rusch
Greg Maddux
Sean Marshall 

Sigh :(

Taveras, what a classy player.  I'd love to see Taveras and Bruce Bowen locked in the same room to fight to the death.

Then I'd like to see the winner devoured by a rabid tiger.

Oh man...the Royals are ******* KILLING me.  Take a 3-0 lead in the first only to lose it after 3 batters.  And that's after a pair of 3-run homers yesterday.  It's gonna be another rough year.   :'(
