Opening Night... 

Yankees – Red Sox tonight at 8:00 on ESPN. I’m eagerly looking forward to it.

Sports Illustrated’s Baseball preview issue came out this week. I haven’t had much of a chance to check it out, but they’ve awarded the Phillies fourth place, behind the Mets. Snort. Here is a link to their analysis of the Phillies, which essentially amounts to "the team is the same, but they are hoping to play better under Charlie Manuel". I disagree and note that the team upgraded their pitching staff with Jon Lieber in a big way. SI is a little too dazzled by the Mets big bucks, in my opinion.

I'm encouraged by Baseball Prospectus' predictions for 2005: the Phillies are consistently projected to finish first or second by Prospectus' staff. It is interesting to me that a main-line publication like SI is going with the conventional wisdom that the Mets are improved and an outsider / stat outfit like Prospectus thinks that the Phillies have quietly closed the gap. Sabremetricians should be rooting for the Phillies this year.

Season Preview, Part III tomorrow everyone.
