Think he's crazy? Probably. But, what if...?

  • The math doesn't work on the Colorado and Toronto series; the +/- and records don't reconcile.

    It's all crazy, anyway. And how really wants to look that far into the future anyway? ;-)

  • Not how, but who . . . Eh, what's the law for someone who always makes a grammatical error while correcting someone else's grammar? That's about the same thing, I guess.

  • Errors where? I don't see any.

  • Damn, that's some WORK! Well, who knows...stranger things have happened.

  • The Nats are 1 game into their 2of3 from the Braves. But I agree that no variable bifocals on the planet can give us good enough vision that far in the future.

    The Yankees?? Who are they? Take away Mussina and their starting pitcher ERA is only meagerly better than DC's. I'm not so worried about their banged up team as I might be otherwise. It's those sleepers like the Rockies that worry me, laying in wait for the unsuspecting Nats to come along.

    Besides, you should be working on reducing a photo of Kasten to replace that itty bitty little Tavares in about 30 days (or more).

  • The only crazy part I see is taking one of three from the Yankees, and two of three from Boston. At Fenway. That would be flippin' sweet, though. Maybe those two teams will be so exhausted from duking it out with each other on ESPN that they'll let the Nats walk all over them.
