Welcome Back, Baseball

As Major League Baseball makes its return to network television, so too does Dear Mr. Supercomputer get to finally take in a game. True, it's on Fox. True, I'll probably have to listen to Tim McCarver.



And true, it'll probably be a Red Sox / Yankees game (seriously, if both of those teams had their planes accidentally misdirected to Iraq I would hold up a big banner that reads, "MISSION ACCOMPLISHED").

But nevertheless, baseball is a part of the Supercomputer family again.

What does the mean for you, the loyal reader? Intreguing insight on the Indians' playoff chances! Analysis of the DH-platoon situation on my fantasy team! Amphetamines!

And, of course, the predicted standings. Last year, we finished very favorably in the Baseball Prospectus "Predictatron" competition. Narrowly missing the top 10 thanks to the Mets totally tanking against the Cardinals. Always a glutton for punishment, we went with the Mets again, not because they're particularly good, but because they're in the National League, which sucks.
