    Prince Fielder!

  2. Nick Kapur says:

    Prince Fielder is one of them! Can anyone name the other two?

  3. Josh Barfield (Jesse)and Tony Armas Jr.?

  4. Nick Kapur says:

    Yes, that’s right, Jeb!

  5. Nick Kapur says:

    How can the west coast only have “pennant sniffles” if the last place team is only 6.5 games out??? That means all the teams are still in it! The western divisions have much more raging pennant fevers than the easts or the centrals because there are way more teams with a shot, rather than just the top 2 or 3.

    A good pennant race has nothing to do with winning percentage – it’s all about how close together the teams are, and how many teams there are.

  6. I just don’t see how you West Coasters can be excited about a bunch of teams who are all in the running because they are all mediocre….sorry. :(

  7. Ugh, WHAT is that hideous yellow face on my comment. I am not excited about THAT, sportsfans!

  8. Nick Kapur says:

    Well, since they brought back the unbalanced schedule, it is really hard to know if teams in a given division are closely bunched because they are all bad, or because they are all good, since they mostly only play each other.

    Maybe the teams at the top of the AL Central and the AL East are good, or maybe they just look good because they get to beat up on teams like the Royals, D-Rays, and Orioles.

    Ah! Touche!

    Now go write a caption. :)
