What's really amazing is how the Red Sox are going to do all that without scoring a single run.

Does anyone keep a track record on any of these experts? Is there a blog graphing their accuracy over past seasons?

I know these guys want to look smart, so they make a lot of 'safe' choices, but I want to see more people going out on a limb.

No one chose the Mariners as AL Champs, but if they win the West, they have a great chance of it with F-Her, and C.Lee.

I was glad someone picked the Giants to get the NL Pennant.

Also, out-on-limb choices are seldom correct. It's not only looking smart, it's being right.
