    Idk how come its not here but I had Soriano as my NL Comeback player and Wakamatsu and Macha as my MOYs

  • Dan Reiner

    I laughed at how everyone has the same big-name MVP choices except for mine, and everyone has Heyward as NL ROY except for me.

    Steve, interesting choice with Jennings for ROY by the way.

    Oh yeah, I also laughed at three people having the Mets behind the Nationals in the East; it's funny that they can be considered that bad now after being a good team two years ago.

  • Eric Communiello

    Great pick with Peavy Dan, I totally forgot about him when thinking about comeback players.

    I think it's pretty cool that we only have full agreement on four teams going into the season. It really shows how crazy every baseball season is, and you've gotta love that about the sport.

      The team you picked in the WS has Aubrey Huff as their cleanup hitter lol…I felt like going out on a limb can't see Phillie 3 peating so went wild lol

        • Stephen Crociata

          Posey, most likely, will see minimal time…if you make this same argument next season i'll probably be behind you but idk just yet…you may think I'm crazy but I think for them to make a run this season its 100% on Barry Zitos shoulders…if he can find success that gives them a BIG four…tough to beat…especially in the NL

    • Chris Barrows

      I can't speak for everyone else, but I really like the make-up of Colorado this year. I think the NL West will be really interesting this year either way.

      • Stephen Crociata

        Ubaldo is awesome and Greg Smith will likely be much better in the NL then he was in the AL (even though his ERA was a very respectable 4.16)…as long as Francis comes back soon and healthy they should be just fine.

        • Brandon

          Francis being healthy is like Carl Pavano being healthy

          You can't just assume Smith will be good and ready in the postseason or even the regular season

        • Stephen Crociata

          You can't underestimate the Rockies hitting though they are pretty strong top to bottom…if Giants pitching can carry them Rockies hitting can do the same

    What a dogfight among the Yanks, Red Sox and Rays! We're so lucky we have the pitching quality. I'm looking for AJ to be the Big difference. We'll see tonite.

    The only two surprises I can guess against your predictions are the White Sox and the Giants, both for their pitching.

    • Chris Barrows

      I agree with you on the potential for the Giants. It was actually hard not to include them higher in my predictions, b/c I think they'll be a great team.

      • Stephen Crociata

        It was difficult for me to not have the Sox higher but idk about the Giants as good as their pitching may end up that lineup just doesn't do it for me.

  • John Skilbred

    Two of your three picks were RIGHT ON…..the Twins and Yanks look like they're destined for another October matchup…….maybe this time in the ALCS…Detroit may not "go away" as they also have a strong Starting staff……but the Wild Card is destined once again to come out of the A.L. East….maybe the Tampa Bay "Not Going Away" Rays….

    However…..the Mariners are already talking about "cutting their losses" and shopping Cliff Lee…..he could be the "missing piece" for the Twins as they would match up so much better against the Yankees if they landed him and they have NO SHORTAGE of Prospects to give up to the Mariners as they will need to Re-Build their Aging team!

    • Rob Abruzzese

      You are right, the Twins with Lee would be a sick team and they'd probably be able to overtake the Yankees for the first time in a long time.
