The World According to Keitho

Tales from bizarro world.

Posted by keithosaunders on April 13, 2011

The baseball season is two weeks old and I’m pondering the ethics involved in editing my season-predicting posts.  There are some happy surprises, however.  Here are a few of them:

Baltimore is 6-3 and sits atop the AL East.  How many chances have we had to say this in the last two decades?  They must be doing it with Geritol, what with newly acquired Vladdy Guerrero, and Derrek Lee.  But what the heck, they have Adam Jones, Nick Markakis, and Mark Reynolds.  There is some pop on this team.  

Texas is on fire at 9-2!  The Rangers are 3rd in runs scored and 1st in slugging.  They received a piece of bad news today, however, learning that they have lost Josh Hamilton for 6-8 weeks.  Good thing he’s not a Met — that would have insured a season-ending injury. 

Cleveland is leading the AL Central with a 6-3 record.  Can they keep up this pace?  No!

On the disappointing side of the ledger we have Tampa and Boston, who are playing .273 and .182 ball respectively.  What the fuck?  Could the red sea part any wider for the Yankees?!  I know it’s early, and for that reason I’ll limit my rant to one more sentence.  If this holds up, at least we’ll get the wild card from a division other than the AL East. 

Or will it be Toronto?  Stay tuned…

    I think the Red Sox will turn it around in Toronto.
    Tonight’s outing with John Lackey… I wish I could say I was optimistic…
    It’s a sad, sad world for the nation.
    I’m not an Orioles fan by default, but it would be neat to see them keep up their momentum. I don’t see it happening, but it would be neat.
    And Tampa… well… I don’t see them doing much this year. You know, except making my team sad this week.

    • Thanks for stopping by, soxy. One thing we all have to keep in mind is that it’s a long season. Everything gets amplified in the first too weeks, especially since we’re all pumped up about the new season. The Sox could easily turn it around, and the same goes for the Rays. In fact, I would be surprised if they don’t, especially if Beckett pitches like he did the other day. There is too much talent there.

  2. Josh Hamilton being hurt is crippling for the Rangers.


    • Especially with without Cliff Lee — they can’t afford to lose someone of Hamilton’s caliber. Regardless, they should be in the race all year. Hopefully i t will be a great 3 team race with the Angels and my East Bay A’s!
