Championship Week--What 2 Watch 4--Monday Edition..

While we're waiting on the main entree of the big boy conference tournaments, we're being treated to an appetizer that wets the palette better than Ruth's Chris Steakhouse and their sweet potato casserole.

We've already seen five teams punch their ticket to the big dance (Murray State, ETSU, Cornell, Winthrop & UNI), and there are several more bids on the plate tonight. Four teams will be dancing following double headers on both ESPN and the Deuce in a night that should be filled with plenty of excitement.


William and Mary and Old Dominion will start off the action on ESPN in the Colonial Athletic Association championship game in a game between two teams with tournament savvy resumes. ODU, the regular season champion, possesses a (25-8) record and dominated the regular season with fifteen victories. The Monarchs played several big name programs to the brink this season and are team poised to pull a 12-5 upset during the opening weekend of the tournament. The Tribe of William & Mary have long been a pushover, but they started this season with a bang and possess victories over Richmond, Wake Forest and Maryland. The PMB expects a well played game and predicts a Monarch Victory.


Siena has proven time and time again that they are not an easy out when The Big Dance comes calling, and noone expects this season to be any different. Siena had another strong showing during the MAAC regular season with 17 wins, and while they don't appear to be as dangerous as previous seasons, they will still be a tough draw, if they manage to get past Fairfield tonight on ESPN 2 at 7:00. Fairfield has played Siena within a couple of points both times this season, but the Saints always seem to crank it up when the lights shine the brightest. The PMB will take the Saints by 12.


The Southern Conference has seen its fair share of success within the NCAA tournament, and most recently had an elite 8 showing by Stephen Curry and the Davidson Wildcats. While Davidson is absent from this season's final, Wofford and Appalachian State should provide plenty of entertainment. Wofford has knocked off two SEC opponents this season (UGA & USC) and have the talent needed to win a first round game in the NCAA tournament. Appy State appears to be peaking at the right time, winning 6 in a row, and knocked off College of Charleston by an absurd 23 points in the Southern semifinals. Yes, the same College of Charleston that defeated UNC earlier this season. Wofford knocked off the Mountaineers in a nail-biter earlier this season, and The PMB expects nothing short of a great game tonight. We'll take ASU knocking off Wofford in an upset tonight and expect Wofford to do great things in the NIT.


The Gael's from St. Mary's have quietly put together a great season (25-5), but their declination of a bracket buster game has dealt a hard blow to their at large hopes. The Gaels lack any quality wins and were swept by The Zags this season and need a victory tonight to alleviate any tension regarding their tourney hopes. The Gaels are lead by Omar Samhan and his 21.3 points and 11 rebounds a game. Gonzaga has been a mainstay in the public eye for well over a decade and are now a constant within the top 25. Mark Few reloads, he doesn't rebuild. The Zags are playing to pad their tournament seeding and The PMB expects them to do that tonight. Mark Few, Matt Bouldin and Elias Harris will beat the Gaels by ten or more and send St. Mary's to the NIT.


The PMB Pick 'Em T-Shirt Challenge...

The PMB enjoys a pick 'em challenge as much as the next person, and while we're not offering a $10,000 dollar grand prize, we are offering your choice of a t-shirt from The PMB's store!

We've set up a tournament challenge group over at ESPN.com and we want all of you to join in on the fun. So, get to signing up folks! The winner, once again, will win its choice of any t-shirt that is available in The PMB's store.

2010 MLB Season Preview: New York Yankees

It is kind of scary to think that the Yankees are better in 2010 than they were in 2009. New Center Fielder Curtis Granderson is such an upgrade, and not having the pressure of batting lead off like he did for the Detroit Tigers may be just the thing Curtis needed to unleash some firepower. Of course hitting left handed in new Yankee Stadium will certainly help him improve his power numbers. While they will have a spring training battle to see who replace Johnny Damon in left the Yankee offense will be younger and faster in 2010.

The Yankee starting rotation may not be a deep as the Boston Red Sox’s but it is very scary to look at on paper. CC Sabathia return as the ace, with AJ Burnett, Andy Petite, newcomer Javier Vazquez backing him up. Joba Chamberlain and Phil Hughes will battle it out in spring training for the fifth starters spot.

The only hole I see in the Yankees roster at this point is a pretty weak bench. Typically this is how the Yankees save a little payroll. Since their big money stars are not only good but can be counted on to start 150 games a season they don’t need very strong bench players to keep the team churning.

Here's what I think the lineup may look like:

1. SS Derek Jeter
2. DH Nick Johnson
3. 1B Mark Teixeira
4. 3B Alex Rodriguez
5. C Jorge Posada
6. CF Curtis Granderson
7. 2B Robinson Cano
8. RF Nick Swisher
9. LF Brett Gardner

SP: CC Sabathia
SP: A.J. Burnett
SP: Andy Pettitte
SP: Javier Vazquez
SP: Phil Hughes

CP: Mariano Rivera

On Deck: Atlanta Braves
