Here are the rules....

Phil Mickelson, pro golfer, is a big-time gambler. His usual strategy is to bet on utterly random teams to win in the NFL every year, in the hopes that they will pay off big. He won BIG money two years in a row with St. Louis and Baltimore, ergo the strategy has some merit.

So, without further adieu, it's time to pick your World Series, WITHOUT picking one of the preseason "favourites." If Anaheim last year was any precedent, somebody is going to look awfully smart with at least one of their picks come October.

My pick: Toronto vs. Chicago

For a medium shot I will take the White Sox at 20-1 odds. For a long shot I will take the Marlins at 100-1.

Those who fought against this war's coming must now stand and say we stand behind our troops and wish them the safest possible future. May as few people as possible suffer for this effort to come to a conclusion. If war must come, let it come and go swiftly and as bloodlessly as it can.

Expos / Twins

Willful ignorance of science is not commendable. Refusing to learn the difference between a credible source and a shill is criminally stupid.

Whatever biases you have, you're absolutely right that it was mind-blowing that they spent so much time on the blown call on the tag play, but didn't once mention that it effectively canceled out the blown call on the pickoff.
