Ok, so here are the current standings (as of 8/21/14)

BAL: 73-52

TOR: 65-62 -  9 GB

NYY: 63-31 -  9.5 GB

(Tampa is 12.5 GB, but it's too big a gap for them to come back)

AL Central:

KC 70-56

DET: 68-56 - 1 GB

CLE: 64-61 - 5.5 GB

AL West:

LAA: 75-50

OAK: 74-52 - 1.5 GB

SEA: 68-58 - 57.5

AL Wildcard:

Oakland: 74-52

Detroit: 68-56

Seattle: 68-58 - 1 GB

Cleveland: 64-61 - 4.5 GB

Toronto : 65-62 - 4.5 GB
Yankees: 63-61 - 5 GB

National League East:

San Francisco: 66-58

Atlanta: 66-61 - 1.5 GB

Pittsburgh: 65-52 - 2.5 GB

Ok, so after all that, here's who I have winning what:

AL East: Baltimore  -- Lock

AL West: Oakland -- More pitching depth

AL Wildcard: Angles and KC (Rooting for the Yankees but it's not happening this year

NL Central: Milwaukee

NL West: Dodgers

NL Wildcard: St. Louis, Pittsburgh

Ok, those are my picks.. Yours?

I'll say: BAL, DET, and OAK with wild cards KC and LAA. WAS, STL, and LAD with wild cards MIL and PIT. FWIW, my preseason picks were: BOS (ha!), DET, and OAK with wild cards TB (haha!) and NYY (hahaha!). WAS, STL, and LAD with wild cards PIT and ARI.

I'm just hoping the Redbirds can scrape by and get in.

Dude, me too. The Cardinals have been playing rough but we can scrape in!

So my pre-season picks included the Rangers and Rays so this means nothing haha

ALE - O's

ALC - Tigers

ALW - A's...I love Oakland, but would be picking Anaheim if Richards didn't JUST get hurt

WC - Angels and Royals

NLE - Nats

NLC - Cardinals

NLW - Dodgers

WC - Brewers and Pirates

So not much different from anyone else. These teams just seem to be destined for October

Well, now that the playoffs are here, who else is excited???  I have no real investment this year (or last year, or the year before that ,or the year before that, or basically every year since 2006) so it's nice and stress free.  I get to root for good games and long series'.

I would lean towards seeing the west coast teams (and specifically the Socal teams) advance as far as possible, and this year of all years seems like the best bet for a freeway series, but anything can happen.

Here's my guesses (no research whatsoever, just hunches and hopes):

Angels over the A's in 5

Orioles over the Tigers in 4

Nationals over the Pirates in 5

Dodgers over the Cardinals in 4

Angels over the Orioles in 7

Dodgers over the Nationals in 6

Dodgers over the Angels in 6

Greinke wins the NLCS MVP award and Kershaw wins the WS MVP award.  Kershaw goes 6-0 in the playoffs (winning games 1 and 4 of the DS, games 2 and 6 of the CS, and games 2 and 6 of the WS) and Greinke goes 5-0 (winning game 2 of the DS, and games 1 and 5 of both the CS and WS)

How wrong am I????

At this point I am hoping for another I70 Series ( with different umpires than the last time it happened ). ;-)

I don't think either team is good enough but you never know and it doesn't hurt to hope.

    • Ready golf except in match play. Match play is different. 
    • Yep! I have both a FJ jacket and pants in rainwear that I bought years ago. I don't use them very often so they've lasted a long time. But, they're heavy and hot! They were made before GoreTex and other waterproof, breathable fabrics. My advice? Get the absolute best you can afford! They will last you a long time, they will keep you comfortable, they will be light, and they won't impede your swing very much.
    • Thanks for all the responses. I think this boils down to the context of the situation. I had two of the foursome busting chops about hitting out of order on previous holes. Then the first time it was mildly inconvenient for them to wait, the holed out just as i hit the green. Mind you.  This wasnt an "adventure" hole.. I hit the green on stroke 5 because of a flub shot that went about 10 ft. And an errant approach that left me about 10 yards short of the green. In any other case I agree that its perfectly fine to hit when ready, but not if you complain about hitting out of order. I guess to paint the picture, one whipped a club on the 3rd hole due to sculling a shout out of the bunker.. on another hole had one of them walking towards green right in front of my approach.. he nicely moved about 3 yards to the right as i asked him to move. As karma would have it, i hit the shot straight at him and nearly hit him.. these were friends of mine.. so a lesson learned to play golf with different friends..
    • Picked one up and checked it out in a store the other day. First thing I noticed about it was how heavy it was. Reminded me of when I went out for the HS golf team, and the coach had a Driver with a solid steel head on it. He advised us that we were NOT to hit drives with it! It was for warm up only. Being as heavy as it is, I think the main benefit to it might be that it slows your transition from backswing to downswing. There's a whole lot of guys who could use that!
    • OK, this kind of clears things up for me. I thought you might have been trying to take close ups of clubheads impacting golf balls. In that case you'd need something numbering in the several thousands of fps! If all you need is to look at swings I'd say anything the budget allows should suffice. Consider the 960fps system mentioned. If a golf swing takes about I second, at a playback rate of 30fps, that gives you a swing video of 32 seconds in length. Plenty long enough to see the golfer's bodily motions. Considering how small the clubhead will appear when videoing the entire golfer, I don't know that fps is the main consideration. It could be pixel count and the quality of the lenses. This reminds me of my "audiophile" days when cassette tapes were all the rage. I had a BIC deck that could record at 7 1/2 ips (inches per second), and an Audiovox car player that could play back at that speed. The sound quality was amazing! You were putting the same amount of info into twice as much space! There was so much more room!
