    Just because you say you're not drinking doesn't make it true!

    Not a drinker, but I like some of the offseason moves they made. Plus, deep down, I've kinda liked the Nats since they were born.

    Picking Joba to win the Cy young makes me question your sobriety more than the Nats for the WC.

    Re: Preseason Predictions

    Yes - I'm a dreamer, I don't care

    AL East Champ NY Yankees (unfortunately)
    AL Central Champ Detroit Tigers
    AL West Champ Texas Rangers
    AL Wild Card TB Rays

    NL East Champ Philadelphia Phillies
    NL Central Champ Chicago Cubs
    NL West Champ LA Dodgers
    NL Wild Card NY Mets

    ALDS Detroit over NY, TB over Texas
    NLDS Chicago over NY, Phil over LA

    ALCS Detroit over TB
    NLCS Chicago over Phil

    WS Chicago over Detroit (going back to where it started)

    AL MVP Josh Hamilton
    NL MVP David Wright

    AL Cy Young Justin Verlander
    NL Cy Young Johan Santana

    AL ROY David Price/Matt Weiters
    NL ROY Colby Rasmus

    *Other predictions:
    - The Brewers will finish 4th in the NL Central
    - ARod hits 45+ HRs
    - The Red Sox won't make the playoffs, and will spend $300+ mil next offseason
    - The Royals won't finish in last in the AL Central

    I'm sure I have others, but that's off the top of my head.

    Adam Dunn does not make an offseason. Scott Olsen is no better than a #4 SP... I like ATL's offseason more, if you wanted to make a crazy NL East pick :)

    Why? He had a 2.60 ERA last year in his mix of bullpen and starting work. 1.26 WHIP isn't great but not bad. Doesn't give up a lot of home runs, strikes out a ton. Has an offense behind him that can get him W's when he doesn't pitch well.

    AL East Champ - Boston
    AL Central Champ - Minnesota
    AL West Champ - Los Angeles of Anaheim
    AL Wild Card - Tampa Bay

    NL East Champ - New York
    NL Central Champ - Chicago (because there's no better option)
    NL West Champ - Los Angeles
    NL Wild Card - Philadelphia

    ALDS - Twins, Angels
    NLDS Mets, Phillies

    ALCS - Angels
    NLCS - Mets

    WS - Mets

    AL MVP - Morneau
    NL MVP - Wright

    AL Cy Young - Halladay
    NL Cy Young - Santana

    This, of course, is all dependent on whether the Mets offense does anything the first half of the season, unlike last season...

    All of that is true, but This will be the first year were people have really seen his starting stuff before. Last year when he switched to a starter people hadn't seen him yet(yes, they saw him from the bullpen but that is completely different from starting.) I am not saying I do not think he will be a good pitcher, I just don't think that this will be the year he wins a Cy young. Especially with the gaudy numbers the rest of that staff is capable of putting up. If he does win it I will gladly eat my words because he is maybe the only Yankee that I like, but I just respectfully disagree.
