I'm a Dodger's fan.  I'd be elated but embarrassed if they won the division.   What a terrible division.

I'm not much of a baseball fan (I'll watch during playoffs and World Series), but I am very glad to see any activity over here in the sports forum so I'll make some barely semi-informed picks just to amuse those of you who actually know baseball. ;-)

American League

  • White Sox - clinched division
  • Angels - clinched division
  • Devil Rays - clinched division
  • WC - Red Sox - clinched WC

National League

  • Phillies - clinched division
  • Cubs - clinched division
  • Dodgers - clinched division
  • WC - Mets - choked collapsed ousted again on last day for 2nd straight year

Pretty sure I did that correctly... one from each division, then a single WC for each league, which can come from any division, right?

Yep, one from each division and the WCs.  Hey, guessing works sometimes.  I did that on most of my football picks last year and I had a pretty good record.

Wow! So far I'm 5 for 8 with my picks and the last 3 are still alive (I'm pretty sure) for either the WC or their division!! :-)

With the Phillies clinching of their division last night this admitted baseball ignoramus has gotten 6 picks correct, with the Sox still alive for their division and the Mets still alive for the last WC spot... wow! Now if my Week 4 NFL picks can only go this well!! :-)
