Broadly in agreement, although I think the NL West is just impossible to call: Giants aside, those look like four very evenly matched teams to me. And while Philadelphia could top the Mets if all the breaks go their way (translation: if they trade for pitching in the next few days and Santana blows out his arm against the Marlins on Monday), it wouldn't surprise me to see the Phils in third behind the Braves.

Since you foolishly called for the Evil Empire to take the AL East, I have to post my predictions:

NL West: LA Dodgers
NL Central: Cubs
NL East: NY Mets
Wild Card: Atlanta Braves

AL West: California/Anaheim/LA Angeles
AL Central: Cleveland Indians
AL East: Boston Red Sox
Wild Card: NY Yankees

These lists are always fun, but entirely laughable by seasons end.


Correction: the Mets have choked the last TWO years in a row. What were you looking at in 2006, Mr. Beltran?
