As players are getting into mid-spring training season form it is often time that the pundits and experts make their predictions as to how the season will shape up. These predictions are based on nothing and serve to further over hype marginal free agent signings and over achievers from the years before. I’m convinced there is no actual thought that goes into these things so to prove it I asked the rest of the Hooligans to come up with their own predictions and submit them to me. Now, since everyone comes to us as the utmost authority on all things baseball I have decided to post these. We all picked our own version of the AL East standings as well as division, league and World Series winners. Also we picked MVP, Cy Young and Rookie of the Year winners for each league. I put them into a sweet easy to read chart for you guys complete with a comments section at the bottom. I suggest that you print this out and take it with you to Vegas, don’t forget to send us our share of the winnings though. (Eutaw Street Hooligans and their representatives, especially Jjaks Clayton, in every way condone gambling however disavow any type of negative responsibility [financial, personal, or romantic] that these picks may cause you.)
Yes, I realize that is small and hard to read but if you click it then it will zoom in. Get off my back.
As you can see, this is groundbreaking stuff. We all took it very seriously and it is interesting to see that many of us came up with similar picks. Probably because we all watched the same thing on MLB network. We will see how things shape up and probably revisit these with revised lists mid season. Very disappointed in the picks by Kevin Lomax though. A little douche carpet baggery there. He actually sent along one other item of interest. Enjoy, and as always…Let’s Go O’s!
