The "I need to have documentation that I said this prior to the start of the season." Comments

Come the end of the 2011 season, the BRATWURST will be the victorious sausage.
Team to watch: the Show Buckwalters er, the Baltimore Orioles. Team finally has some bright spots to look forward to...especially A LOT of available money in 2012.
Loshe won't be able to stand the heat with Wainwright out and the Rays can't maintain their productivity.

A banged up Phillies team is going to leave the door open to the Braves.
The Brewers will start the season on an even keel and once Hart and Greinke are back in the fold, they'll explode in May like '08.

If I could, I'd nominate Joey Votto twice for most disappointing player.
I couldn't give the Yankees a playoff spot with this rotation. They'll have to trade for AT LEAST one arm and even that won't guarantee the Wild Card for Alex Rodriguez is King Douche.

I don't think that the Brewers get the Wild Card this year. Either they are going to be the team that we are hoping they are, or they're going to get lost in the shuffle. Therefore, because I'm a homer, they have to win the Central to make the playoffs. I'm high-ish on the Braves, so they get the Wild Card spot.
In the AL, I think the Rays are going to actually lead the AL East for awhile and maybe into July, but it's money over talent and the Sox and Yanks will both get in.
Neither of last year's World Series teams get back to the postseason.
(He also said that I am awesome.)

And there you have it, now, shoot holes in it and tell us how ridiculous or overly conservative it is or how we're nay-sayers or how much you like my hair cut.
