Jeff Takes a Bath

One of the things I’ve always appreciated about my buddy Jeff is his ability to admit when he’s wrong.  And despite what he may say at the end of every post, there have been plenty of times that he has had to admit to errant predictions or inappropriate accusations.

That doesn’t make it any less refreshing when it happens, though.  For instance, his recent mea culpa for getting the AL Central race so wrong came as a breath of fresh air.  And if anyone should know about never counting a team out you would think that it would be the guy who supports the Cardinals, a teams whose 2006 season was the ultimate story of lucking into the playoffs and then getting hot at the right time.

Now, I’m a much more cautious person than Jeff.  I’m not going to make any wild predictions about the Tigers winning the pennant, much less the World Series.  However, the 2006 Cardinals (and the 2011 Cardinals, for that matter) proved that anything is possible and the Tigers definitely have a team that, if everything clicks, could do some damage.

Hey, what could be better than Jeff taking a bath?  Or a shower, as it were.

Very true, Al. All of the teams, including the wild cards, have a chance at winning it all if they get hot at the right time. Many different factors though out the playoffs will shape the course of one championship team. It has to be the Tigers and Cards in the Sereis, though, right? And I think it’s Detroit’s turn to win this one….

But Mike, you guys won in ’68. I think it’s time the Cards tip the series towards the ‘Lou!

Jeff-true, but if we’re taking turns, then it’s Detroit’s turn. 68-Tigs, 06-Cards, 12-Tigs???
