Winner of the NL Central will finish at .500 or below .. . .


And my Cubbies will hopefully (finally) sh*t can Jim Hendry and start to rebuild this awful mess of a team. Sigh.

Yes, it's a hefty price, but it helps remove the 1 1/2 years left of Blanton (roughly $14 mil). Gonna need that $$$ to sign Pence. I just don't see the benefit of keeping Brown. Can't have Lefty, Lefty, Lefty (3,4,5 hitters). Trade Brown and put Pence behind Howard. Cosart is as much a risk as Drabek, so why not win now.

Only keeping Raul because he will still give you around 20 HR's yr and 80 rbi (divided by split playing time). That's cheap for that production, even if he's only hitting .260. It's only for 1 year, then we can see the market in '13. Raul played 1st during the "Roy Oswalt in LF" game, which means we won't resign Gload, which is fine with me.

Brian Wilson will shave his beard.


I definitely agree with this.

The Red Sox overcome insurmountably odds (less than 2% chance after an 0-5 start) to make the postseason. Call me crazy!

See previous thread.
uh oh Tampa, Boston, and Houston fans

Negative, cards will win the division and finish 10 games or more over .500 and cubs will suck for another 100 years

My team the horrible Orioles will end with the worst record in MLB, with 59 wins and and will trade Zach Britton and Jake Arrietta to the a National league team for a 35+ old power Todd Helton or Lance Berkman who will get the O's kiss of death ala Glenn Davis....

Cardinals realize their team is total #@#@#@#@ without Pujols. Pujols comes back too early from the DL, and re-injures himself wiping after taking a dump in his pants.

Pirates fail to make the deal to put them over the top, and fall out of the race in September.

Cubs fire Quade, and trade Ramirez and Matt Garza. Starlin Castro finishes the year leading the majors in hits.

Tigers - Phillies World Series.

Red Sox and Yanks make deals at the deadline, but fail to improve their teams.

Fielder wins the Home Run Title with 49 homers.

The Cardinals have the NL leading home run leader in Berkman and if Holliday was healthy, he'd be in it too. The Cardinals have basicly played without Pujols the entire season, as bad as he's played(compared to years past)

Joe Mauer ends up with the highest season batting average of his career by the end of the season.

Jays trade for Brandon Phillips for some reason in an attempt to lure him to the Tdot to sign a contract as a free agent in the offseason.

Another prediction is that people don't stop hating on bautista. HGH, roids? Come on now.
