The Sports

Not so great Final Four games... In a year of close, low-scoring games, Butler won in one of the lowest-scoring. Ugly. They've gotten so far on defense, but tonight may be as much on Michigan State's lack of depth. Duke just creamed West Virginia, nothing much to say about that. Have to think that Duke will win it all, unfortunately. I don't think Butler has an answer for Singler. On the other hand, they can shut down Sheyer and Smith, so who knows.

Baseball starts tomorrow. Quick picks (subject to change as I think about it more):
  • AL Playoff Teams: New York, Tampa (Wild Card), Minnesota, Seattle
  • NL Playoff Teams: Philadelphia, Atlanta (Wild Card), St. Louis, Los Angeles (but the West really stinks)
  • AL MVP: Joe Mauer
  • Al Cy Young: Felix Hernandez
  • NL MVP: Albert Pujols
  • NL Cy Young: Roy Halladay
  • World Series: Philadelphia over New York
  • Dark Horse Teams: Seattle (AL), Florida (NL)
