MLB Predictions    

Couple things to keep in mind before we start:

* I'm fairly hopeful for the Sox.  But reasonably so.  Too many question marks to go around claiming too many things.

* Both AL East playoff teams are built for the playoffs, even with Pavano involved as prominently as he is.  (Seriously, Lehr, do you have a friggin iota of doubt about what's gonna happen?  Honestly?)  But the divisional schedule is too hard.  I can't see either team making it out alive.

* I'm not on board with Minnesota as much as I'm not on board with anyone else, and they have the best pitcher and a deep bullpen.  I could definitely see them sneaking past the Sox or Yankees and wreaking havoc once it becomes anything-goes.

* That said, there's not much separating the top four AL Central teams.  8 games tops.  That division's gonna hinge on a surprise injury.

* Philly is the only NL team that looks even remotely palatable right now.  They were clearly the NL's best team last season, and improved themselves.  But I do see a step downwards for Ryan Howard.  Good luck getting another 50 HR from him after fucking him over on his contract, guys.

* I also see a return to the Braves making the playoffs for no good reason and choking.  Hooray!
