    I'm surprised you didn't pick Greinke for NL Cy Young... especially since you picked the Brewers to win (where many people have them 4th in the Central) and Braun for NL MVP. Here are my picks:

    NL East: Philly
    NL Central: Cards
    NL West: Giants
    NL Wildcard: Rockies

    AL East: Red Sox
    AL Central: White Sox
    AL West: Rangers
    AL Wildcard: Yankees

    NL MVP: Carlos Gonzalez
    NL Cy Young: Cliff Lee (I actually think Greinke has a good shot though)

    AL MVP: Robinson Cano
    AL Cy Young: David Price

    Phillies over Red Sox in 5

    Fair enough, but you cant make the argument that the Brewers have a more successful organization than that of the Cubs...

    Greinke will have to be very dominant to win the Cy Young even though he will have missed possibly a month of the season. Hopefully he can be good, but I think that Gallardo has a better chance of winning it than Greinke.

    I'm not much of a fan of either team, but that statement is certainly up for debate. Any real "success" that the Cubs truly had as an organization occurred before the Brewers/Pilots were even in existence. And at least the Brewers have been in the World Series in the last 60 or so years.

    If it weren't for the fact that the Cubs are one of the oldest organizations in baseball, stating that the Cubs are a successful organization (in terms of wins and championships) would be an overstatement.

    I don't get all the Cincinnati love. They came out of nowhere last year because a bunch of guys had career years (Joey Votto) or a resurgence (Scott Rolen). I don't see it happening again. Their pitching won't cut it.

    Oh, I guess I didn't realize he was going to be out for a while. Nevermind then.
