I like baseball. Because whenever you think you know it, you get bitch slapped.
So lets play "Who Woulda Thought?"
That Ryan Garko would have only 3 less homers than Travis Hafner, who only has 23.
That Hafner could have such a sub-Pronk year and the team would have such success.
That Franklin Gutiérrez and Asdrubal Cabrera would be the desperately needed catalysts to get the Tribe going.
That any pitcher would ever walk AstroCab to get to Pronk.
That the Indians would beat Johan CYtana 5 freakin' times.
That the White Sox would be last (or close to it).
That the Indians would make the postseason (with possibly the Major's best record) after stinking up the joint following the All-Star break.
That Joe Borowski could lead the AL in saves.
That Fausto, after last year's troubles, would be an ACE (maybe the AL ERA leader?)
That Paul Byrd (who many here would've traded for a good pair of sneakers) would a near ace.
That Cliff Lee would fall off the cliff and into AAA.
That Jensen Lewis would step up and Fernando Cabrera would fade away.
That Josh Barfield (what a great trade!) would suck.
That the much maligned Eric Wedge could very well be the Manager of the Year
And one that I wish - that the Indians, who couldn't beat the Yankees once in the regular season, sweep them in the ALCS and - what the hell - go on win their fist World Championship almost 60 years)!
