Baseball - pigs fly, elephants dance, Tigers wallow

This is shaping up to be an interesting season. Earlier, I'd insanely predicted that the FL Marlins and hapless DevilRays would meet in WS this fall. Admittedly, this was a heavily chemical and alcohol based prediction. A week binging on some of the Hells Angels finest meth makes you say some pretty stupid shit.

However, at this early juncture, that retarded prediction doesn't seem to be completely out of the realm of possibility

The Marlins ARE in fact leading their division, and the supposedly stacked Mets are a game and a half behind them. The Devil Rays are playing better than .500 ball so far winning 5 in a row, and closing in on Boston like Ted Kennedy charging an unguarded bottle of Chivas. I've not yet come to grips with Baltimore leading the AL east, so I'll just casually dismiss that as some obscure defect in the display drivers on this computer since it can't possibly be true.

So what's up with the Tigers these days? They scored Cabrera and Willis from the Marlins and were supposedly stacked. They're sucking canal water playing sub-.500 and being beaten by the perennial also ran Royals. Can't be too much joy in Tigertown these days. Razor blades and rope must be flying off the shelves in Michigan these days.

The Diamondbacks are looking very strong. A few years ago I predicted they'd be serious contenders at some point in the near future. This may be that year. The rest of the NL west is sub-.500 and sucking canal water, which is a surprise. I expected a tight race there, with the exception of the Giants who I expected to fade right out of the gate like a sno-cone in July. They're still #2 in the division even though they're sub-.500. WTF?
