Welcome to the 2007 Baseball Season! We are all undefeated. We are all equal. Finish two games above .500, and it is possible you, too, can be celebrating like it is 1982 this time next year. Every fan has every reason to hope, every reason to believe.
Seven different champions in seven consecutive years. Major League Baseball, to its credit, has managed to achieve parity without, as is the case in the NFL, mediocrity. There are some great teams out there, dominant ones, even. But there isn’t a team out there that can truthfully say they haven’t got a snowball’s chance in Hades of hoisting that crown next year.
Fire up the Hot Stove!
