! You have opened up the 2013 MLB season thread in the only fashion appropriate! Buster Posey is a great humanitarian, a gentleman and a scholar, and one hell of a baseball player, too.
Argh, still don't have a team to follow and not going to do another season of just watching random games now I have mlb.tv Premium. My head won't let me support The Giants even though I really enjoy their games, simply due to their WS win. Current plan is to just hope that Brian Wilson gets picked up by someone and let fate decide who I follow based on that. A stupid system? You bet!
What's with the OP? Did Deso and MrMister switch usernames?
That pic of Posey. I find it hilarious.
I find it inspiring!
1st thing I thought of:
Someone should make an Obama campaign version of the Posey picture with "OPS+" in the place of hope.
, I completely agree with your point about the "NL [seeming] really weak aside from the division winners." There are roughly only a handful or half a dozen strong National League teams in my view, but the ones from the NL that are strong are about as tough as any AL team, and in three cases, (effectively, the divisional winners from last year) maybe more so.
However, there's no doubt to me that the American League features a much longer list of threatening clubs. The AL West, AL East and the two wild card spots were all up for grabs in the final days and hours of last year's season, while the Braves and Cardinals, the two teams who seemed to have locks on the two wild card spots for the NL, indeed remained right where they were. Though the Dodgers, Diamondbacks and Brewers at least tried to make it a little bit of a race.
