Oh my God. Both of you pick the Yankees losing. At least Joe has us getting to the second round. I can't handle that much realism in March. And I'll lay money now that Alfonso Soriano is not the MVP.

Interesting that all three of us picked the Tigers over the Mets in the Series. Guess that means none of us will have bragging rights at seasons end regardless of what happens.

My bragging rights will come when the As don't finish in last place in the AL West.

My bragging rights will come when the Yankees get back to the World Series! I hope!

But I'd settle for the second round.
