J-E-T-S

Though I don't really talk about this much but I love the Jets. I don't know nearly as much about football as baseball even though I watch every Jet game and a lot of other games. Their stifling D has gotten them to the AFC championship. Rex Ryan has put a new face on this team and no longer do I feel wrought with worry (except when Sanchez starts to move out of the pocket). They go on to face the Colts next week to see if the D can hold up against Peyton. The Jets Blog has a great video up of the attitude that Coach Ryan is bringing to this team, he says: "The three home teams made it....and the f---ing JETS!".












The Jets are playing great football and have come a long way since the start of the season.

Predictions for the 08 Season

Here are my projections for the 2008 season. They are basically just my feelings, they are not statistically based. If you want more thoughtful projections look at Pecota or the Hardball Times or the recent post on Replacement Level. There is your disclaimer, so don't tell me how stupid I am. Again, sorry for the lack of posts. Spring Training is painfully boring and Charlie and I have both been quite busy.

AL East: Yankees
AL Central: Tigers
AL West: Angels
AL Wild Card: Red Sox
The AL, unlike the NL, has at least five legitimate playoff contenders, with the Indians as the odd man out. However, I think the Angels are the only lock, as their division sucks. A losing streak or two could be the difference between the playoffs or not for the Yankees, Red Sox, Tigers and Indians.
Team to Watch: Tampa Bay Rays- made a lot of noise in the offseason, and although they won't contend this year, they could scratch .500.
Players to watch- Miguel Cabrera, Evan Longoria, Phil Hughes, Joba, IPK, Laptop Boy

Now for the NL:
NL East: Mets
NL Central: Cubs
NL West: Rockies
NL Wild Card: Phillies
Okay, I take it back. The NL does have quite a few legit playoff contenders, but for different reasons. The NL is competitive because of a lack of standout teams, but a large concentration of average-slightly above average teams. I think the Mets could probably win the AL West, but no other NL team would make the playoffs in the AL.
Team to watch: Mets- Diamondbacks- Can they have another successful year with a very young roster, and despite the fact that they were outscored last year?
Players to watch: Troy Tulowitzki, Johan Santana, Dan Haren, Cameron Maybin, Andrew Miller

There you have it: The Chuck Knoblog's Unofficial Division-by-Division Predictions for the 2008 Major League Baseball Season- catchy, isn't it?

Tomorrow the Red Sox play the Oakland A's in Japan, at 6AM. It'll be nice to wake up to baseball after being without it for five months.
