Welcome spring and welcome baseball!

 

I hate to start this thread with a something about the Cubs, but it's hard not to like Joe Maddon:

IMO, if there's a Dark Horse in the AL this year, it's NY. Yes, the same team that was WC team last year and is running on a 22 year win streak. They have a loaded bullpen, speed and a lot more youth than you'd expect -and a short porch in RF. Get a lead by the 6th and they're more likely to win than anybody else. JMO.

NL Central will be an incredibly exciting division to watch this year.  I think the Cubs, Cardinals and Pirates will all be 90+ win teams.  Again.

Watched a spring training game with the Pirates yesterday. They are going to be a fun team to watch. I love their outfield.

Bet the house on the SF Giants. They win it every other year.

Mets should pay more luxury tax because Yankees have a bunch of broken down players on their roster with $20MM/year contracts:     :doh:

All you fantasy baseball players need to go get Matt Duffy. This guy can hit and is eligible for few if positions.

I guess I should make my opening day predictions for the World Series.

 

Pirates and Jays.

Stumbled on this thread.... let me just say the Indians are winning it this year. All other predictions are simply wrong.

Well.....they certainly helped themselves by acquiring Miller.

 

Not getting Lucroy to agree stings a little bit.

It's been a difficult 20 hours or so. Went to bed thinking we got Lucroy, woke up finding we got Miller, then Lucroy nixes the deal. Deadline isn't over, and we need to add a bat, preferably at the catcher position.

Miller was the better get, IMO.

 

You have hours to go. If they want to get something done, they will. They're seemingly "all-in".

 

good luck! :beer:
