The Candor

From the sidelines: April 18, 2012

1. Are the Bulls really better without Derrick Rose?

 Tom Brown- Staff Writer– I do not think the Bulls are better without Rose at all. I mean, the guy has one bad game and people are saying the team may be better without him? That is ridiculous.

John Pierri- Staff WriterNo, the Bulls are not better without Rose and they will not win any championships without him. The bench is strong but Rose is the backbone of the team.

 Luke Stanczyk- Sports Editor– Absolutely not, and whoever thinks so needs a reality check. I cannot believe this is a topic for debate after one bad game from Derrick.

2. Is the Sox hot start just a mirage or are they for real?

 John– I’m impressed with how the Sox were able to take two of three from the best offense in baseball (Detroit). I don’t know if they are for real, but they look good right now.

 TomI think the Sox fast start is a bit of a fluke. I think once the season gets into full swing, they will settle in and finish right around the .500 mark

Luke– I think they are the clear-cut second best team in the AL Central and have a shot to finish at .500 or above. If things go their way, they could sneak in as the second Wild Card.

3. Who will win the World Series this year?

TomMy pick to win the World Series is the Detroit Tigers. They have two of the best hitters in the game and one of if not the, best pitchers in the game, which makes them superior to any other team right now.

 John– As much as I would love to say the Cubs will shock the world, I am realistic. I think the Detroit Tigers will win this year.

Luke– They’ve started pretty slow, but I like the Los Angeles Angels. With that rotation, all they need to do is get into the playoffs and the pitching will carry them.
