OAFC BBS - All Topics: Archive: 2007 Win Total
Bah-humbug. I'm not jazzed about the 2007 at all. Too many variables need to work out.
I'm hoping for a healthy Harden and with that in mind I'll say 90 wins.
I'm a Nitwit who farts sunshine.
Harden Cy Young candidate, Crosby, comeback player candidate, Geren Manager of the Year candidate....we play hit and run, straight steals, win the division 96 wins, a world title....dreams do come true.....Let's Go A's.
We got Raider and Ey on board.
Bill, meet Pollyanna; Polly, meet Bill....
Polly sounds great. Everyone is welcome on the Nitwit bandwagon.
I have huge gas
i'll fart away. 100 wins. harden wins cy. croz wins mvp. chavvy regains form from the early 90s...silly me...
If Harden and Crosby, hell the team can stay healthy...
A's just had too many defections: Jay Pay (no comparable replacement); Hurt (No comparable replacement); Zito (No comparable replacement). Chavvy is who he is with the stick. Croz has never shown me anything...even when he is healthy he's a .250 20 hr guy. Lots of Ks not a lot of BBs. Harden, if healthy, does make the rotation comparable to last year but the Halos are just better...and younger. They have sticks (Vlad, Kendrick, G. Mattews...if 06 wasn't a fluke, Chone, etc.) Plus they have great starters, Santan, Lackey, and Weaver. Bulle ain't bad wiht K-rod in there. I'll enjoy the season but will not be popping off any optimism until I have something to give me optimisitc. Sounds like Beane's thrown in the towell. He's been hiding out in europe for months now...
Ahhhh...all the gas smells like roses to me.
I wouldn't toss Matthews into their brigade of sticks, the guy is a career 263 hitter, never hit above 276 until last year where he achieved career highs in several stat categories and to pay this guy 50 million over 5....well they got the money to make mistakes....think Yankees west. I will give the Angels the pitching, a healthy Colon(ok here we go again), Weaver overcomes the so called sophomore jinx, Lackey gets consistent and Santana....forget the hitting they can win many games scoring 2 runs...and the way Scioscia manages....they'll get a lot of those games. If Kendrick, Weaver and Napoli can remain consistent, it'll be a nice race....we'll see how the young guys do down the stretch. With the prospects they got they probably are in the running for any high priced free agent come deadline time. Scary, scary....I hate airing out my fart, by looking at the Angels on paper, darn it.
I'll say 96 wins.
Well we'll have to do this without Kirk Saarloos he was moved to Cincy for a AA pitcher with 26 saves.
can anyone (find) post last year's predictions and who got was closest???
Is the Saarloos move a precursor to another move for that LF stick we crave ????
