I predict the Orioles and their FO will continue to crash and burn.

Which as a fan really pisses me off. Someone needs to take Angelos down a peg. :Smoker:

If anyone follows the O's FO closer than I do, can someone tell me why Angelos sucks and life and doesn't give a damn about the franchise?

Joe Torre wont win the world series for them. And what? 82 wins for my Phils? Dude they got better and are the NL's best team. They brought in Lidge, Jenkins, and Feliz, and groomed Hamels to become an ace, not to mention pulled Myers out of the bullpen. 2 great pitchers. Go Phils!

[B] [URL="http://www.baseballprospectus.com/team_audit.php?team=PHI"]Philadelphia Phillies[/URL] (80-82, 849 [URL="http://www.baseballprospectus.com/glossary/index.php?search=RS"]RS[/URL], 870 [URL="http://www.baseballprospectus.com/glossary/index.php?search=RA"]RA[/URL]).[/B] Here’s what I can’t figure out: in what ways will the Phillies be better in 2008 than they were in 2007? [URL="http://www.baseballprospectus.com/glossary/index.php?search=Defense"]Defense[/URL] at third base, an extra month of good play at second, arguably at closer. That’s it. They’re likely to see offensive declines at most spots, and the rotation is a major problem, as is the bullpen in front of [URL="http://www.baseballprospectus.com/pecota/lidgebr01.php"]Brad Lidge[/URL]. The idea that they’re the favorite in the division is addled, and the possibility of a significant dropoff is better than the possibility of a repeat title.

They are a little less optimistic than I am.

Pure speculation, as I haven't read up much on baseball this past Winter...

AL East - Boston
AL Central - Cleveland
AL West - Texas
AL Wild Card - Detroit
AL Worst Team - Baltimore
AL Surprise Team - Tampa

NL East - New York
NL Central - Milwaukee
NL West - Colorado
NL Wild Card - St. Louis
NL Worst Team - Florida
NL Surprise Team - Washington

AL Pennant - Boston over Cleveland
NL Pennant - New York over Colorado

World Series - Boston over New York in 6


As far as the Orioles go, I'm hoping Andy MacPhail will keep Peter Angelos at bay and actually start rebuilding this team. It's been in a rebuilding stage for several years now, but they haven't rebuild anything but the Jumbotrons. They've already shed Jay Gibbons, and I wouldn't be surprised if by June, guys like Millar and Huff aren't shipped out either.
