Please stop answering questions about the angels making the playoffs
deGrom Texas Ranger
They always overestimate the Angels. It has been going on since 2011. Remember Wilson, Punols, Hamilton, Rendon, etc?
Who is Punols? JK. Couldn’t resist.
Buuba ho tep
WOW ANGELS ALL THE WAY
Would have been a great time to ask who the other 9 teams at Britton’s showcase were.
Fever Pitch Guy
stymee – Agreed, it’s like he’s playing a game of Simon Doesn’t Say.
Also the most boring standard division predictions. Cmon try to make it interesting.
So he should adjust his opinions to please you?
Fever Pitch Guy
grey – Agreed. The newbies tend to always just go with the favorites, not really worth answering if it’s always the favorites.
I mean, he picked the Padres to “upset” the Dodgers… that’s a sort of bold move. Despite the pads’ aggressive spending, I still think LA is the team to beat in the West.
I saw he refused to take the bait and make predictions for foreign baseball leagues, but does his native New Zealand have any teams in the Australian Baseball League? I know it has a basketball team in Australia’s NBL.
They do – the Auckland Tuatara were formed about five years ago. Notable big leaguers Josh Collmenter and John Holdzkom have turned out for them.
Dang, John Holdzkom, that is not a name I’ve heard in a while. I wish he worked out for the Pirates. He looked great in September 2014, but injuries simpily got in the way too often.
Cardinal fans – no one wants Paul DeJong and his contract.
Yankee fans – No one wants Aaron Hicks with his contract and injury history.
Sean The Trucker
DeJong for Hicks straight up. Lol
