2008 AL East Predictions

1. Yankees — The Yanks had a terrible start to the season and they still finished with 94 wins. Every pitcher in their system got hurt in the first few months and they still hung on. This team is deep and their front office is creative. Their offense is stacked and second only to Detroit’s….Read More

2008 AL Central Predictions

1. Tigers — Just look at their lineup, OK? I dare you, DARE YOU, to find a better offense in the game. They’re simply stacked. Even if they get two-three injuries, they’ll be good enough to withstand it. And I really think their pitching staff has underachieved; they’re much more talented than what they’ve shown….Read More

2008 AL West Predictions

1. Mariners — Any offense that begins with Ichiro at the top is already off to a good start. Richie Sexson will be back to his old self, while Beltre, Ibanez, Johjima, and Vidro will be solid but not spectacular. The Erik Bedard trade puts them over the top; it really sets their rotation up…Read More

2008 NL East Predictions

1. Mets — Easily the most complete team in the NL, thanks in large part to the addition of Johan Santana, no coincidence. I thought the trade of Milledge yielded better returns than most critics gave them credit for. Reyes, Wright, and Beltran are good enough to carry the team even if Moises is banged…Read More

2008 NL Central Picks

1. Cubs — I’m not as in love with the offense as I think other people are, but Soriano, D. Lee, and Aramis are enough to keep them going. Their starting pitching is their strong point and quite deep, with Hill and Marquis giving them the edge on most 4s and 5s in the league….Read More

2008 NL West Predictions

1. Diamondbacks — The best got better acquiring a front line starter like Dan Haren. Their bullpen is weaker without Jose Valverde closing games, and overall it should regress from their stellar performance last year. On the other hand, their offense will improve with the young guns performing closer to their expectations. Overall, they have…Read More

A-Rod Regrets Not Signing With Mets

It’s been said for quite some time that Scott Boras is only interested in representing his clients’ monetary interests rather than personal interests. Alex Rodriguez admitted as much in a recent interview. He told the NY Daily News that he regrets not having signed with the Mets back when he was a free agent in…Read More

Joe Nathan Got Paid, Lost His Sanity

I’m quite pleased with the contract the Twins and Joe Nathan agreed upon. For one, it means Minnesota is retaining some of its elite talent and staying competitive. Secondly, it keeps the closer market down, which is good news for the Angels’ negotiations with Frankie Rodriguez. While it was nice to see Nathan get his…Read More
