Did Harper get traded to the AL?
Hosmer MVP is a REACH of a pick. I think he's going to have a great year, but wow, MVP!
Sorry, got that goofed somehow with Harper.
And yes, Hosmer will be unreal this year.
self proclaimed baseball scout doesn't know who the NL MVP was last year
Nationals as first wild-card?
Dodgers as second wild-card?
<As we approach the midpoint I thought this thread deserved a bump. My predictions look pretty bad.
AL West Champ: LAA (currently 4 games back)AL Central Champ: Detroit (4.5 games back)AL East Champ: Boston (7.5 games back)
AL Wild Card #1: NYY (5.5 game lead to win division)AL Wild Card #2: Texas (4 game lead in the division)
NL West Champ: SF (1.5 games back)NL Central Champ: THE BREWERS! (I'm an idit)NL East Champ: Philly (Wow, 13 games back)
NL Wild Card #1: St. Louis (2.5 games back of division, 2 games back of the WC)NL Wild Card #2: Arizona (7 games back)
World Series: Philly over Detroit (Philly is out and I think the Tigers pitching is too weak)
AL MVP: Migy Cabrera (He's got a shot)NL MVP: Braun (Repeat)
AL Cy Young: Verlander (The guys an animal and it's likely)NL Cy Young: NARVDOG... haha Halladay (Nope, it's gonna be Dickey)
AL ROY: Cespedes (Nope)NL ROY: Yonder Alonso (WTF?)
Most people change their screen names rather than face their predictions.
My picks are, for the most part, alive in the AL (other than Weaver winning Cy Young or Matt Moore winning ROY).
Washington and Pittsburgh have screwed up a lot of things in the NL though. I just didn't expect the Nationals to be as good as they have been, nor the Marlins to be as bad as they have.
AL West Champ: Angels (4 GB, gonna be a great race)AL Central Champ: Tigers (4.5 GB, good team, bad division they can win it)AL East Champ: Rays (7 GB, probably not gonna happen, then again everyones good in the East)
AL Wild Card #1: Red Sox (3.5 GB of WC #1, could happen)AL Wild Card #2: Rangers (lead the West by 4)
NL West Champ: Dbags (6 GB, still plenty of time, Dodgers aren't good)NL Central Champ: Brewers (7 GB, no better team to trail than the Pirates, at least there's that)NL East Champ: Nationals (4.5 game lead! Yay for me so far!)
NL Wild Card #1: Reds (0.5 GB of WC #1, could definitely happen)NL Wild Card #2: Marlins (4 GB of WC #2, definitely maybe)
World Series: Brewers def. Tigers in 7 games (sigh)
AL MVP: Prince Fielder (13 HR 58 RBI .298 avg, only an .866 ops, not looking like an MVP so far)NL MVP: Ryan Braun (24 HR 60 RBI .305 avg, .984 ops, this could definitely happen)
AL Cy Young: Verlander (9-5 18 starts 132.2 IP 128 K's 30 BB's 11 HR 2.58 ERA 2.95 FIP, definitely possible)NL Cy Young: Halladay (4-5 11 starts 72.1 IP 3.98 era 3.27 FIP 56 K's 14 BB's, probably not going to happen)
AL ROY: Mike Trout (10 HR 38 RBI .348 avg .958 ops, great chance)NL ROY: Bryce Harper (8 HR 25 RBI .283 avg .836 ops, could happen)
What about comeback players of the year?
Last year- 122 G, 415 AB, 36 R, 66 H, 115 TB, 16 2B, 11 HR, 42 RBI, 75 BB, 177 SO, .159 AVG, .292 OBP, .277 SLG, .596 OPSAll career lows. He had a forgettable year even embarrassing
THIS YEAR- 82 G, 286 AB, 47 R, 60 H, 115 TB, 11 2B, 25 HR, 60 RBI, 66 BB, 130 SO, .210 AVG, .358 OBP, .510 SLG, .868 OPS
He deserves this not because of avg. But all other numbers dwarf last years in almost half the games.
NL- Buster Posey
No numbers needed here. After the tragic knee injury last year its hard to come back the way he has. More a mental thing than anything else. He could've lost his mind after what happened but he worked hard to come back and play as well as he has. He could've easil
Quit or just not been able to play at the level he was at. Real gamer
LAST YEARS NUMBERS- 18 GS, 7 W, 7 L, 1 CG, 1 SHO, 111.2 IP, 117 H, 61 R, 61 ER, 10 HRA, 24 BB, 95 K, .268 OBA, 1.28 WHIP
Another sub-par injury plagued season raised questions as to if the white sox made a bad move, and if peavy could everget back to his dominating self.
THIS YEAR- 17 GS, 7 W, 5 L, 2.85 ERA, 4 CG, 1 SHO, 120 IP, 95 H, 40 R, 38 ER, 12 HRA, 26 BB, 108 K, .213 OBA, .99 WHIP
Peavy's having an outstanding year. Even though his numbers aren't much different, hes already pitched more innings and given up 21 less runs. Looks like hes obser his way
