A friend and I have had a tradition for the last 4 years or so. Just before the season starts, we swap e-mail with the following predictions. Figured this year I'd throw it out to all of you to fill in the blanks. Whoever gets the most right at the end of the season gets a free live goat (winner must pay shipping for the goat). Hit respond to this post and you won't have to copy/paste anything.

AL East - Boston

AL Central - Detroit

AL West - Seattle

AL Wild Card - Cleveland

 

NL East - New York

NL Central - Milwaukee

NL West - Colorado

NL Wild Card - Atlanta

 

World Series - Seattle over Milwaukee. Frankly, the playoffs are a crapshoot, and I have no idea how it will work itself out. I'll make the homer pick with the Mariners. I'm going out on a limb to predict that things will work their way. Erik Bedard and Felix Hernandez have the capacity to be the two best pitchers in the AL, and J.J. Putz is as dominant a closer as the league has. The offense is a gigantic question mark, and they need to replace Jose Gullen's production in the lineup, but I like the players they have in place and think they may have the right combo.

 

AL MVP - Alex Rodriguez

NL MVP - Matt Holliday

AL Cy Young - Felix Hernandez

NL East - Phillies

NL Central - Milwaulkee

NL West - Dodgers

NL Wild Card - Mets

 

World Series - Boston over the Phillies

 

Absolute homer spin here. I believe that if the Phillies pitching holds up, they can beat out the very tough Mets and Braves in the (toughest division in baseball) NL East. That said, I think the AL is stronger in the World Series and like Boston to take it all again.

I know I didnt say this in the beginning but after watching 35+ games I think the DBacks are going to win the world series.

They'll walk over the division but I'm not sure if they're there yet.

Dodgers are playing pretty well. We'll see if it lasts.

Kershaw called up today and did well. Andruw Jones will have surgery this week and is out until at least the all star break. Was'nt hitting his weight anyway. Kent's avg. is down to I believe .220. Furcal is dinged. They need some help...

This is actually a plus for the dogers

 

Furcal is unfortunate though. He was on a tear..He was set to come back and woke up with back stiffness a few days ago..
