Here's to the start of the 2002 baseball season. Who's excited? I certainly am - I'm hoping that the St.Louis Cardinals go all the way this year, getting past the flavor of the year team (grumbling about the Diamondbacks). It's a bit harder to pick the divisions this year, for me anyway. The talent seems to be spread out a bit more, with the Yankees being the perennial exception. Here's how I pick the division winners: NL West: San Francisco Giants Central: St.Louis Cardinals East: Philadelphia Phillies Wildcard: Houston Astros AL West: Seattle Mariners Central: Chicago White Sox East: New York Yankees Wildcard: Cleveland Indians Right now, I'm watching Bartolo Colon dismantle the Anaheim Angels. Conversely, Jarrod Washburn is getting pecked to death - he's currently let up six runs that were gained mostly by bloop singles. Update: Colon pitches a shutout on opening day. Wow. Looks to be a good start to a great year.
