In baseball my team is St. Louis and right now they are on fire! They have a 9 game lead in the NL Central and the best record in the leagues up to this point. They just had one awesome series against the Cubs a couple weeks ago and they lit it up again against Chicago yesterday. I don't think anybody expected them to dominate the division like this because of how much better the Cubs and 'Stros got in the offseason. But I think the reason they are doing so well is they have help from the starting rotation for Williams and Morris, especially from Carpenter who has done very well. They have the best infield in baseball especially SS Renterria and now with moving Pujols to 1B. And last they are getting good offense not just from Pujols but from Scott Rolen too who drives in a lot of runs.
If they keep this up they will have a good shot at the Series. At this point I'd have to say St. Louis, the Dodgers, and Philadelphia look good as division winners in the NL with the Giants getting the wild card, or maybe the Braves they are hot right now too. In the AL I was hoping Boston could keep pace with the Yanks and they still might catch them but it doesn't look good. Martinez and Schilling are pitching well but they aren't getting enough support from their bullpen and they need more people to hit and drive in runs than just Ramirez and Ortiz. So the Yanks, White Sox, and Oakland for division winners in the AL. I think the Rangers will not finish strong enough to win the AL West but it will be either them or Minnesota for a wild card.
What do you guys think?
