MLB PREDICTIONS

Okay folks, I realize it’s been about a million years since I posted anything and hey…that’s gonna happen…get over it. I’ve been gracious enough to blow off some more homework and bless both of you who read my blog with some preseason baseball predictions. Now realize these predictions come prior to Spring Training, the World Baseball Classic and/or all of the free agents getting signed. So clearly there are some major tangibles that can mess with what I’ve got here. In these ratings I’m assuming Roger Clemens retires…otherwise you know he’d take the Cy Young!! :-)
