It was the fake flip to the child that pissed me off, otherwise I would agree 100%.

Nats were my pick to win it all but without Strasberg I see them losing in the NLCS cause Gio and Zimmerman cant pitch every game.
The Red Sox were screwed from the start after bringing Bobby V. in. You can't bring in Bobby and expect him to turn around the club while having him on a leash.
On another note, I can't wait to see the offensive prowess of The Tiger's when Victor Martinez comes back, the slugging spots will, arguably, be the best in the Major League.
I am just afraid that Jackson, Scherzer and Fister are all in arbitration and we have already committed 87 million in salary and we usually spend about 100 million. There are other in arbitration such as Avila (his dad is a Assistant GM, he isn't going anywhere), Boesch (Garcia has a lot of potential) and Coke.
We have a few players up for free agency. I know we will be letting Delmon (6.5 Mill) go so I believe we will work something out with Boesch and there is always Dirks and Berry (who is better every time I see him) or even upgrade. Bib Papi's play is declining, so we will free up some cash there (7 Mill). Then there is Gerald Laird who only wants 1-2 million to stick around; he really is a pitcher's catcher and with the amount of time Avila misses I think he will be resigned.
EDIT: Scherzer is scratched from Friday's start.
EDIT 2: White Sox lost consequently The Tuiger's are up 2 games in the AL Central.
