Yanks might be trading for Vernon Wells. Man, are they desperate.

These days I find beauty as depressing as years beyond my time.

LOL YANKEES.

Things are not going Wells for the Yankees, guys. Oh, ho, ho, ho.

re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

I'm going to revise my picks a little bit, seeing as some teams wont be able to come out of spring training unscathed. A couple of my favorite teams have been hit hard with injuries or poor performances. Here's my updated playoff predictions:

AL
1. Angels
2. Tigers
3. Rays
4. Orioles
5. Red Sox
- Changed the Yankees with Baltimore. My outlook has changed a little bit with NY. Still think they'll contend and be around 81-85 wins, however. Everything else looks the same as before. Still have faith in the Red Sox. Lester, Dempster and Bard have looked good this spring (though Bard will start off in Triple A).

NL
1. Nationals
2. Cardinals
3. Dodgers
4. Braves
5. Reds
- I'm giving STL the NL Central, thus making Cinci a wild card. One omission from my previous list is AZ. I think Eaton and Ross both heading down with pretty extensive injuries, coupled with Skaggs and Delgado not seizing the opportunity Kevin Towers afforded them makes me a little bit more skeptical. Still think Goldschmidt will have a monster year.

re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

Why STL over CIN now?

re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

I like their pitching more - bullpen and rotation.

re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

Did you know that Motte has an elbow injury and is starting on the DL?

STL = Wainwright, Westbrook, Garcia, Lynn, Miller (i'm assuming he'll be the 5th)

CIN = Cueto, Latos, Bailey, Arroyo, Leake

Both have good and garbage. I don't know enough about their bullpens save Rosenthal, Chapman, and Motte.


And I'm not really disputing STL can take the division. They just seem like a year or so away from returning to prominence. Their farm system is so damn good. I'm still not counting them out even so, but think this will be a kinda down year for them.

re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

I think Boggs, Rosenthal, Motte > Marshall, Broxton, Chapman. We've seen some wild times with Broxton before. Marshall isn't exactly a power arm, whereas all three of the aforementioned relief pitchers from STL can throw 98+ MPH with good B pitches.

I agree on the good/garbage. I'd rather have STL's rotation. I'm not too high on Leake or Arroyo. I think Cueto is in line for a regression, probably 3.5 ERA ish. Latos and Bailey are steady. Wainwright, Garcia, and Lynn is a little bit more appealing to me than Cueto, Latos, Bailey. If Miller can blossom into what that organization thinks he can become, then that may be the trump card.

All personal preference really. I think Yadier is the most valuable player on either of the two teams, too.
