  • Ok, so the Boston over Philly prediction was kinda a joke, but the rest is more or less how I feel the season will play out.

  • I am comfortable predicting that the Phillies won't repeat. They don't seem like the type of team that would. I could see them winning again soon, but not this year. If they trade for Jeter, however, I guarantee a repeat, because he's a born leader who personifies winning. (Still 4/1...)

    I am also comfortable predicting that Girardi gets axed by August 15th.

  • My picks:

    ALE:
    Same, though I think Toronto will look good for the first few months then fall off.

    ALC:
    Cleveland
    Chicago
    Minnesota (although I think the difference between Chicago and Minnesota will be marginal)
    Detroit (would like to see them finish last)
    KC

    ALW:
    LAA
    Oakland (I'd really like to pick them to finish first, but just couldn't)
    Texas
    Seattle (so...same)

    NLE:
    NYM
    Philly
    Atlanta
    Florida
    Washington

    NLC:
    ChC
    St. Louis
    Houston
    Cincinnati
    Milwaukee (this seems pretty low for them. Probably the pick I feel the least good about).
    Pitt

    NLW:
    AZ (I had LA here and was writing my "I'd like to pick AZ, but can't" paragraph. Considering that LA may have a full year of Manny and Furcal, improvement from young pitching and improvement at 2B (while hurting AZ there), it's hard to pick against them. Plus, I had thought AZ had overperformed, although the BP pythags from last year indicate otherwise. But I'm not a huge fan of LA's pitching and I think some young players from AZ are going to step up a bit this year).
    LAD
    Colorado
    San Francisco
    San Diego (and I agree on the fire sale)
