    Predictions...

    I know that this has been discussed before, but we are now a week out from the season starting and I can't wait for baseball.

    So here is what I want to know from people, which team in each League will surprise and choke.

    AL
    Surprise: Tigers (Very disappointing after a good run a couple years ago)
    Choke: Red Sox (There is just something about the Red Sox that gives me a bad feeling this year. they will still finish above 500 but will miss the playoffs)

    NL
    Surprise: Braves (They are making moves and will play hard from Cox's last year)
    Choke: Phillies (They are a Cole Hamels injury away from being the same team as the Brewers...all bats no pitching)

    Re: Predictions...

    I think that the phillies are banking a lot of Cliff Lee. Yes he had a good year last year, but the year before was terrible.

    I guess that we will see what happens though.
