Not too worried about the Tiggers though either...their pitching is totally suspect.  Same can be said of the Twins but they have been nailed by injuries.  I think they have an excellent shot at a 3rd Central Championship more due to the collapse of the Royals though than anything else.  They were so close and have just totally sucked!

White Sox will collapse like they have for the last 3 years

Cubs have been hurting lately.  Finally righted the ship yesterday.  But some players are coming back in a few weeks.  A brutal June schedule - Houston, St Louis, Anaheim, White Sox, Oakland, - just to name a few.  I am fearing this month for my beloved Cubbies.

Prior's back Friday.  Hopefully Sammy & Wood will be back soon.  Lord knows we need them badly.

First all-star balloting update has been posted:

AL:
1B Jason Giambi, Yankees 376,307
2B Alfonso Soriano, Rangers 729,949
3B Alex Rodriguez, Yankees 558,880
SS N. Garciaparra, Red Sox 412,742
C Ivan Rodriguez, Tigers 516,332
OF Vladimir Guerrero, Angels 637,515
OF Manny Ramirez, Red Sox 626,272
OF Johnny Damon, Red Sox 360,755

NL:
1B Albert Pujols, Cardinals 449,708
2B Jeff Kent, Astros 500,876
3B Scott Rolen, Cardinals 461,194
SS Adam Everett, Astros 302,310
C Mike Piazza, Mets 500,446
OF Barry Bonds, Giants 647,183
OF Sammy Sosa, Cubs 586,479
OF Ken Griffey Jr., Reds 364,997

Yawn.  Same ol', same ol', with a few odd exceptions...

Meanwhile, my injury plagued Angels limped through May, and hit the skids a bit the last couple weeks - enough to the point where they went and signed recent retiree Raul Mondesi.   ::)  Sucks when half of your starting lineup is on the shelf for nearly the whole season.   :'(

My Dodgers have also (expectedly) come crashing back down to Earth with a giant thud!  Didn't expect them to do much this year, so that flash in the pan April/early May was certainly more exciting than most of us around here ever expected.  But it's back to reality now.  Oh well.  It was fun while it lasted.

Unfortunately, the Giants have finally caught fire now, with 10 wins in a row.   >:(  And on the flip side, the dreaded Yanks have ascended to their usual spot atop the AL throne.   :-\

I'll refrain from worrying about baseball though, until my basketball team has finished handling their business...   8)  Then I'll be sure to stop by a little more often and tell you all about how the Angels are going to bounce back and kick all your asses!   :-*

Make sure you toss your hat into the ring in the JD Fantasy Baseball League next March when we draft.  Yankee fans like me love to eat up you CA team chumps.

Wow.  Anyone catch what Vladamir Guerrero did for our Halos tonight?!  4 for 4 with 9 RBIs!  Two dingers too.  On top of that, our super stud shortstop, and one of Scott's favorite players - David Eckstein went 5 for 5 to extend his hitting streak to 17 games.  Oh yeah, we beat Pedro and the Red Sox too.   ;)

So who's the smart guy who wisely took Vlad in our fantasy league?   8)

Eck is still playing?  He should almost be at Puberty now, so maybe he'll become useful here in a few more years.   I swear he'd make a better bat boy ::)

Oh, and that would be yours Truly Team BALCO!

BTW, we should rename Dressel's team Team SP/RP!

One more thing, I'm in 2 Yahoo Fantasy Leagues right now, my other team has Nomar, Prior and Sosa all who have been hurt for a big chunk of time, all of which will be back from injury real soon.  Can't wait to get them back, should be a big plus for the Sox and Cubbies too.  Bad thing is I also have Chavez who just went down and Glaus who's probably done.  

Need Wood and Wagner and Giambi to come back for Team BALCO :'(
