how you going to hate on the 14 time nl east champs...
ATL gets 15 my prediction
-TKO

Braves win 14 straight and suddenly can't even make it into the playoffs? Meanwhile 2 other teams from the NL East are in the postseason? Please.

Once again: In Leo Mazzone we trust.

nate- love the a's pick, ive got the a's over the mets.


ps cards never get postseason starting pitching. thats what wins, harden is the key to the a's, and track Halladay, Prior,and Pedro as they make their teams contenders (when healthy) by themselves.

Nice pick... Too bad I read it a week ago in ESPN the Mag... and too bad Moneyball hasn't produced ONE playoff series win.

ESPN the Mag is still in publication?
