This will be the first post of 6 in which we will make predictions with no merit on how teams will finish throughout MLB this season. We encourage all insulting comments, particularly if directed at post authors.
The American League West
1. The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim – the Spanglish translation of their name is “The The Angels Angels of Anaheim”
2. Oakland Athletics (4 GB) – Maybe this season they will answer the eternal question of “If an irrelevant baseball franchise comes close to a division title and no one attends games or cares, did it actually happen?”
3. Texas Rangers (9 GB) – Is there any reason that a 4 team division (and the only one) has to stretch to Texas to pick up the fourth team? This is retarded.
4. Seattle Mariners (16 GB) – Ichiro may have won the WBC, but he’s getting old, and lets be honest, nothing good is allowed to happen to sports in Seattle.
PS – During that World Baseball Classic game of Korea vs. Japan, did the whole arena smell like mothballs? Did they sell oversized sun hats or driving gloves in the concession stands? How many accidents were there in the parking lot?
