The year that was...

George Bush defeats Massachusetts Democrat in Presidential election.

In baseball, a Minnesota Twins left-handed pitcher wins the AL Cy Young award, edging out a Boston Red Sox right-hander.

Hmmm. Looks to me like some pretty bold predictions for the year 2004. Bush beats Kerry in the Presidential race. Twins' lefty Johan Santana finishes ahead of Red Sox righty Curt Schilling to win the AL Cy Young award. Don't you want to wait until this year is over before compiling "The Year that was 2004"?

Predictions? Why, I am merely doing a "year in review" for the year 1988. George H. W. Bush defeated former Massachusetts Governor Michael Dukakis in the Presidential race.

Meanwhile, in Major League baseball, Twins' lefty Frank Viola wins the 1988 AL Cy Young award with Red Sox righty Roger Clemens finishing second.

There you have it! Bush defeats Massachusetts Democrat for the Presidency. A Minnesota Twins lefty wins the Cy Young award.

The year in review, 1988.

The events to occur in 2004!!
