Anyway, I trudged through his chat today (Insider required, but don't bother dumbing yourself down by reading this stuff) because I enjoy bitching about him here on my blog. I'm only choosing one entry this time.
Marc (Boston): HI STEVE, Do you see the AL East teams resting and setting up for the playoffs of will there be a pennant race afterall?Wow. Nice job going out on a limb there, Steve. You must have been the top graduate at the Joe Morgan School of Chatting because this takes the cake. Bold prediction. 3 games up with 5 to go and you're going with.... the team that's virtually guaranteed to win! Ding ding ding!
Steve Phillips: Now that the differential is three games with only five to play, it makes sense for both teams to start thinking about October and how they want to line up their pitching in their rotation. I think it also makes sense to rest a few of the regulars and relieers so they are ready to go for the ALDS. But I suspect the Yankees will not call off the dogs till they clinch. I think it will end with the Red Sox first and Yankees second.
