Most depressing DLD ever 4-11-08: Are you believers yet?

I know Blez isn't.  He predicts the Angels will win the West.  He doesn't think the A's will sniff an AL West title this year.  That's okay... none of the pundits did, either.

I suspect Nico isn't...  I haven't seen him commit, but I've seen enough to know he leans toward the Angels, as well.

Monkeyball...  I'm not sure.  I couldn't access the Official Prediction Thread.  But, as I recall, he didn't post there.  So, in my hypothetical world, he picked the Angels, too.

So, now that the A's are in 1st place.... where are you AN?  Yes, Harden's on the DL...  yes, Duke is on the DL.  Nevertheless, we dominate the AL in pitching stats.  Not so much in hitting stats (yet).

So, anyone want to change their minds?  You only get credit if you post, PaulThomas.  Where'd you have the A's finishing in the AL West?  Last?  3rd?  Or, no where near the top?

Here's the depressing part:

 Mark Kotsay is pretty good this year.  Okay, he's no Ryan Sweeney, but he's pretty good.

Jason Kendall is really good this year.

Aaron Harang is excellent this year.

Eric Byrnes is a star on a team of young, bright supernovas!

And, Marco Scutaro almost beat us today.  I wouldn't have liked that, even though I like Marco.

Remember any of these guys from A's 1998 (since I am unable to edit the title)?
