    10 things I hope to see this year in MLB

    10 things I personally would love to see this year in MLB.


    10. The Yankees missing the playoffs. How great would that be to see the highest payroll fail miserably. Sadly, they are too talented for that to happen.
    9. Steven Strasberg. I could care less about the Nats, but I can't wait to see this guy throw the ball in the big leagues.
    8. Lou Pinella melting down in April. I don't think baseball officially starts until this happens.
    7. A huge record needs to fall. Not sure if it will ever be the homerun record, but it would be great to see a big time record fall this year.
    6. A team that hasn't made the playoffs in years to emerge as a contender.
    5. A perfect game. Don't care who does it on what team, a perfect game is a work of art.
    4. The Cubs and Cardinals fighting out a neck in neck race to make the playoffs. It would be fun to watch their fans go at it as well as the midwest ties it would have.
    3. A 23 game winning pitcher. We haven't seen that since 1999 with Pedro Martinez.
    2. A midwest team in the World Series. Obviously I'd like it to be the Twins, but it would be fun to have a team in the Midwest make it to the big series.
    1. The Twins back in the playoffs! As a Twins diehard, this has to be my #1 choice! I am not liking all the expectations this year. Seems like they do better as the underdog role.

    I would much rather watch them battle for last place. I can't stand either of them or their fan bases. In my experience Cub fans are some of the most obnoxious fans you can come into contact with. Let's hope their World Series drought extends another century.

    oh, were you being serious?

    is there a special gatorade cooler in the dugout full of gravy with "property of prince, do not touch" written on it? are the whirlpools in the clubhouse at miller park actually used for frying turkeys? while all the rest of the guys are lipping skoal, is prince actually shelfing one of those single butter servings you get with dinner rolls at a diner?

    My list:

    1. Yankees win the world series.

    That about sums it up.

    The Yankees are what is wrong with baseball and what is slowly killing it. I think all the other 29 teams should just agree to not play them anymore. How funny would that be.

    1. Arod to get a natural color in his lips.
    2. Cubs to have the world Series won with one inning to go and have something crazy happen.
    3. Boston to actually win the World Series.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    I'm a Cubs fan so I really don't care about the Brewers but isn't Prince Fielder a vegan? He's been pretty darn healthy the whole time he's been in the big leagues and has averaged almost 40 HRs and 100 RBI a year. Yeah he's a pretty crappy player huh?
