Who do you guys like?
I’m going with Cleveland in five. Joe Maddon is one of those managers who gets his team to the playoffs seemingly every year, but he can’t get the job done. I liked him at first when we was up in Tampa, but he could never ever get his teams over the hump, and I don’t think it starts now. The glasses and little-league mentality were cute at first, but it got the Rays nowhere.
Terry Francona will own Maddon with savvy, strategic moves, watch and see. And I hate the Red Sox but respect Terry’s accomplishments in Boston. He’ll continue it in Cleveland.
Your thoughts and predictions please…?
