I Believe by Larry Mahnken
As of about, oh, 5:30 PM (Eastern Time) on March 24th, 2006, these things I believe, in no particular order:
I believe Bernie Williams will be offensively useful in 2006. Not old-school Bernie, but maybe an OPS around .800.
I believe Robinson Cano will be better in 2006 than he was in 2005.
I believe that Chien-Ming Wang will either greatly increase his strikeout rate or be pretty lousy, and that both are equally likely to happen.
I believe Jaret Wright will be pretty lousy. Check that, I know that Jaret Wright will be pretty lousy.
I believe that Carl Pavano will be pretty good. Not great, but pretty good. Like Wang last year.
I believe that Derek Jeter will win the Gold Glove Award.
I believe that Derek Jeter will not deserve to win the Gold Glove Award.
I believe that Alex Rodriguez will be the clear choice for MVP again but either barely win or get robbed. Again.
I believe that Randy Johnson will finish in the top 3 for the Cy Young Award.
I believe that the Yankees will win the American League East. Again.
I believe that the Red Sox will win the Wild Card. Again.
I believe that the Blue Jays will be nowhere near as good as people are hyping them to be.
I believe that Barry Bonds took steroids.
I believe that Barry Bonds is currently taking Human Growth Hormone.
I believe that Bonds should not be suspended barring a positive drug test, and that the record books should remain unaltered.
I believe that Jason Giambi is clean right now.
I believe that Alfonso Soriano is an idiot.
I believe that Jim Bowden is a bigger idiot.
I believe that the Nationals would be better off if they asked Soriano to move back to shortstop and tried to find another left fielder.
I believe that the World Baseball Classic was fucking awesome.
I believe that the Yankees' bullpen is going to be worse this year than last year.
I believe that Shawn Chacon is going to be good this year.
And I believe that if I want to reclaim my blog from SG, I should probably do something more creative than make a list of my opinions.
Anyway, those are some of the things I believe right now. I may change my mind at any point. --posted at 5:30 PM by Larry Mahnken / |
