    Since the other one has gone goofy, I'll let 'er rip with a new one.

    Might as well throw out a topic for discussion ... which disappointing first-half team has the best chance of recovery in the second half?

    I'll go with Colorado because they're playing better and their division blows.

    Mets in the NL and Tigers in the AL. I'd say the D-backs if they weren't in first place despite their substandard performance.

    Cool. I'm a big fan of anarchy.

    All that paint thinner has clearly gone to Bubbler's head.

    This one goes to 50. We locked the other. Let's keep this one to baseball.

    It pains me to say this, but I think the Twins are gonna hang around for a while, meaning the Tigers are gonna have a difficult time turning things around in 70 or so games after the break.

    The Twins and Tigers are going to blow by the White Sox.

    If that happens, hopefully it'll keep you preoccupied while the Cubs choke in the second half, allowing the Brewers to win the Central while the Cards claim the wild card.

    I am amazed at the pitching Minnesota has gotten from a bunch of kids.

    Slowey and Baker I always liked. Blackburn? No idea where he came from. Boof to the pen was a good move.

    Liriano has made two good starts in a row at Rochester. They say the life is coming back to the fastball. We'll see.

    If they can get him back before September they'll be tough to beat.
