It’s On Now!

Fred of Moondog Sports and I have made a friendly wager on the upcoming baseball season. He thinks the Detroit Tigers will score 1,000 runs or more, and I, feeling the Tigers to be overrated, think they will score no more 950 (only about 5% less, however). Fred originally wanted me to link to Bill O’Reilly’s website in my blogroll if I lost, and he’d link to The Huffington Post if he lost. I’m not too fond of The Huffington Post anymore, not for any particular reason other than general disinterest (since everyone is talking only about the upcoming Presidential election), so I offered a new slant on the wager: the loser has to wrote a blog entry of at least 500 words complimenting the winner and his blog. Fred accepted, and now it’s on. May the loser satiate the winner’s ego.

    Yeah, I’d like to make an offer… You wrote on my blog that John Smoltz will win the Cy Young… He won’t. Bill, I have to ask, are you drinking again?

    I don’t drink!

    I also don’t think, given his recent injury problems, that he’ll win the Cy Young either. He’s been top-tier for the last 13 years, though, including the last three seasons — his late 30’s and early 40’s.

    I’ll take the UNDER. Detroit obviously has an impressive offense, but they’re also overrated, for a number of reasons:

    – Left field and catcher are mediocre.
    – 2007 saw career years a number of players, and 2008 projections should include a solid step down for Granderson, Magglio, and Polanco.
    – Guillen’s bat is good, but not great for a 1B.

    Go Tigers! Detroit Tigers in this case. They scored four runs Monday night so just 996 to go! That’s an average of 6.18 runs per game needed to reach the 1,000 mark. No Problem!
