I look at this team and it just doesn't seem that scary but they are good. Still there are lots of stories and who knows what will happen come playoff time. I for one hope we'll see some new blood win a championship this year. It is great for the sport and fans to have the different markets compete. May not be great for ratings but that isn't what it is all about. It is about players, owners, managers, teams, and fans who bleed team colors and deserve a chance to celebrate a championship. Since my Braves and Red Sox are out of it, so out of it, I'm rooting for Pittsburgh in the N.L. and Houston, Kansas City, and Toronto in the A.L. If nothing else it should be fun as always (except for the one game playoff but that is a different post) the next two months.
