What's next?

Bum deal about my Bruins but they surpassed everybody's expectations in the tournament. Joakim Noah and the Florida Gators were too much. We should expect next year's Bruins to be just as good if not better as Coach Ben Howland gets everything out of his kids that he can. Well done!

So baseball season is starting and my Angels are looking good again. Unfortunately, they were unable to pick up a big bat in the offseason. They wisely chose to stay fiscally responsible and develop talent from within by holding on to highly touted prospects Brandon Wood, Howie Kendrick, Jered Weaver, and Kendry Morales. I am a little disappointed that they did not go after center fielder Mike Cameron from the Mets as San Diego obtained him in a trade that was practically a steal. I think their offense may be even better than last year with the emergence of Casey Kotchman and Juan Rivera. Veteran Tim Salmon is back in camp and had a great spring.

I predict that the Angels will win about 91 games and come in second to the Oakland A's who have perhaps the best pitching in the majors. If Bobby Crosby stays healthy expect him to support Eric Chavez and Milton Bradley in providing the offense to support incredible pitching.

The Cardinals are the strongest again in the National League as they will be riding high from playing in a brand new stadium. However, the winner will likely come from the American League. It looks like the Chicago White Sox are no fluke and that they should be poised to repeat as champions.
