Recommended Posts

Calling it, since we only have 17 days til Pitchers and Catchers report, football season is done and over with and Spring Training is soon to be near. Baseball is soon to be back. Why not start the thread...

The Giants won't do much to defend their title this year. Oh, and they'll hit like four home runs all season. Still pretty excited for this season and for one more year of Spring Traiming games in AZ before I move.

The Jays will hit more HRs than anyone... & finally get into the playoffs.

I'd love for that to happen, but you can't get into the playoffs without a pitching staff.

The Reds are going to suck and the regular season is a pointless exercise that sets up a game of random chance that the Cardinals will probably win. I haven't been less excited for a baseball season in probably ever. The only thing I'm looking forward to is games at Safeco, but I don't plan on following this season as closely as I have others in the past.

Baseball means so much to me but I can't remember the last time I went into a season expecting so little. Then again, I am a Braves fan and they have won for most of my life, so I can't complain too much.

My prediction is I'll go to Atlanta to see a couple of games and mingle with other fans. Other than that, not too much :)


Dodgers finaly become a solid defensive team and will still get screwed by STL in the NLCS

As long as Yasiel Puig is on that team, they won't be.

I say the same thing every year. But this time it will happen for sure!

(I hope.)

I actually have some pretty high expectations for the Mets, but then again I haven't exactly dug in quite so deep yet. Having Harvey back will be wonderful; whether they are ready to fight for one of those wild card spots is another matter.

The Yankees? God. They are probably the most volatile team I see in the league right now. Healthy Tanaka + Pineda might put them over 90 wins this year. Problems keeping either/or/both healthy, and they likely struggle to get to 75.

Too bad the infield is projected to be a couple of old, rusted bolts.

Won't matter anyway, the Giants/Cardinals/Yankees/Red Sox conglomerate will win the World Series again to the disgust of the majority of America.

The other day, the Braves acquired three catchers in one day. Two via trade, the other to a minor league deal, I think. Their biggest free-agent acquisition had neck surgery a few weeks later.

So, in other words, I've no idea what to expect from the Braves this season. I'll have to catch a few spring training games just to see who's on the roster.

You've taken a bit of a dark turn these days, my man. B)

The Cubs will disappoint.

I bought the Sporting News Baseball Preview today. FWIW, they have the Cubs winning the World Series.
