This Max Marchi dude is interesting. He picks the Jays 2nd and Red Sox 4th, and then has the Nats finishing ahead of the Phillies.

blogtard said...

Does this Max Marchi provide any insight into his, um, unique and creative choices?

SoSock said...

:) Love it! Can't wait. Thinking about going to see if I can score tix to the White Sox expf game here tonight...
Also - the Pedro painting Awesome!
Looking forward to game heads, for sure

If you need any more evidence that Max Marchi is a blooming idiot, look no further than his MVP vote: Ichiro Suzuki.

Marchi either (a) recently hit his head on something hard or (b) is going to seriously clean up in Vegas in October.

He's just betting that if he's right, everyone will know, but if he's wrong, nobody will remember.
