*Before reading this, remember, I'm an idiot*

AL:

East: NY

Central: Minn.

West: Angels

Wild Card: Boston

NL:

East: Atlanta

Central: St. Louis

West: San Fran

Wild Card: Florida

Big prediction, for the first time in a long time, neither the cubs, cardinals nor astros will finish in second place in the central. Rather unlikely, but I'm thinking the cardinals are back, the cubs need a perfect season, and the astros are old. Team of the future in the central is the Brewers.

Playoffs:

AL:

LAoA over Boston :)

Minn over NY :)

Minn over LAoA

NL:

St. Louis over Atlanta

Florida over San Fran

St. Louis over Florida

Midwest World Series! Cards over Minnesota in 6.

cause the cubs lost a good amount of their offensive production and replaced it with jeremy burnitz. Still don't have a real closer, and glendon rusch or ryan dempster will be the 5th starter. Be honest, does that make any Cubs fan feel comfortble, haveing Rusch/Dempster has your fifth starter?

The cubs won't suck, but they aren't as strong as they have been in years past. If they stay healthy all year, they'll battle for first. But its been awhile since Wood and Prior had full seasons (has it ever happened in the same season?), Zambrano and Maddux are always solid though. Like I said, if they stay healthy, watch out.

For the first time, the Cardinals have their starting lineup before spring training. They upgraded offensively at 2nd and catcher, slight downgrade defensively at catcher and a downgrade defensively at short. They have 6 or 7 starters for the first time since I've been born, return all their big hitters from last year except Renteria, who had a down year last year anyway.

I'm telling you folks, watch out for the Brewers in the Central. They will be a surprise team this year and make a run next year.

Thing is, losing Sosa will increase morale, so there won't be the petty infighting to bring the Cubs down like 04.

And don't sleep on the infield. Barrett, Lee, Walker, Garciaparra, Ramirez: that's production. Patterson should focus on just trying to hit for power since he can't get the OBP thing down and help us out there. Burnitz could surprise us, and Jason Dubois is supposed to have tremendous potential. Barring injury, the rotation is rock-solid. Lest you forget, Glendon Rusch was our most reliable starter for a while. He must've just hit his stride at Wrigley. I dunno. I'd rather have him at #5 than Shawn Estes or Sergio Mitre. To the joy of the entire north side, Kyle Farnsworth is gone. Granted, we still need some acquisitions for the bullpen before too much time goes by, but there's time for that.

whaaaat? the Tigers winning the division? i'd say there a long shot, but ya never know i guess.

Well, I had to make one pick that no one agreed with! I fully realize Detroit doesn't have much in the way of the rotation. I made this pick before they got Maggs, to boot. So I may look silly at the end of the year. But the Twins got worse, and in my mind that opens up the division for anyone to win except the Royals. If Percival is on the money and Maggs doesn't go down with injury? Yeah, I'll take the Tigers.

As for the AL East, I'm not going to NOT pick another team because of the Braves streak. Their rotation got worse, yes they adeed Hudson at the loss of Ortiz, Wright and Byrd. Their offense got worse. Last year where they had players who have been in the leage for a while and FINALLY lived up to some type of potential(J.D. Drew and Jaret Wirght), they really don't have the same type of players this year. The Marlins have a good rotation IF it stays healthy, and their WORST offensive player is Alex Gonzalez. Hell, forget Atlanta, in my heart of hearts I want the Mets to win. But I look at the Marlins, who are a better team than the Braves, and who killed the Mets last year, and I make that call.
