I don't think we have a thread on this. If we do forgive me as I have been working a ton and missed it. But I always look forward to everyone's baseball picks. You can do division by division if you want or just throw out there some things that you think will happen in 2012.

My predictions

NL


Phils, Cards, Dodgers

Wildcards Brewers & Diamondbacks

AL Yankees, Tigers, Rangers

Wildcards Red Sox and Rays

Wild Cards: Rays and Angels

NL East Phillies

NL Central Brewers

NL West Giants

The NL is much tougher to predict than the AL.

I noticed that HBF is buying into the Nationals. Anyone have a good "surprise" team for the year?

I happen to think the Dodgers rebound big this year.

I can't see the Dodgers being a factor this year. Their infield is a mess. Maybe next year when they start spending money. The key free agents will be Cain and Hamels. If they join Kershaw they will be a major problem.

I didn't pick them but I could see the Miami Marlins being a surprise team. I was torn between the Marlins and the Braves.

AL Central & eventual WS champion:

My beloved Detroit Tigers

Tigers Vs Phillies=Detroit in 6:)

Too much firepower imo.

I am hoping my Red Sox take the AL, and I think the Reds will take the NL crown.

Unless Acevedes pitches out of his shoes &,doesn't get lit up like a christmas tree, I dont see them doing much this year, too much turnover imo. Papelbons gone, Baileys out for awhile, theyre fucked closer wise.

Yankees and Angels along with Phillies look like awful picks. I nailed the Dodgers and felt very strong about the Nats and Braves.

Claw-can you make this thread a sticky so we can rank on our ineptness?

Stickied. Too early to blow the whistle on the Phils and Yankees though IMO.

I agree. As long as their respective divisions stay somewhat close standings wise, those two team have a chance.

Our SP is the worst I've seen in a while, back to (I think) 2005 or 2006 when we had guys like Shawn Chacon and (10-0) Aaron Small in the rotation. Those were the days of Randy Douchebag Johnson, Hey Wang, Kevin Brown, Jarrett Wright and Carl Pavano. We still made the playoffs because they got LUCKY. I don't like this team.

I'm reading Philly is worried about Halladay. I'm not following closely. What's the story there?

Halladay is going to see a Doctor Tuesday.

Nova, Hughes, and Kuroda have pitched their balls off the last month and a half.  Nova and Hughes dominated their last starts against Chicago.  They have 3 starters with 9 wins.  It's not that bad.

Phillies should trade Hamels now. Pick up a few players now and try to re-sign him in the off season.

I know, it's amazing the turnaround they have had with their SP. They're going deep into games, they've saved the bullpen a ton from getting worn out, even with 2 starters down.

Nova is just a flat-out winner, always has been.  You can say he gets lucky and gets good run support, but there's something to be said for being able to win 2-1 or 9-8.  He just does what it takes to win.
