Major League Baseball

Pitchers and catchers report around Feb. 12th...

Once again, my early predictions, hopes, and dreams:

Cubs - Boston World Series

Dodgers win the West again

Nats will stink again

Yanks will be there all year

Angels will still stink and Trout will finally want traded

Oakland will be at the bottom

Bartolo Colon will not retire and have a .500 season

Ichiro will be back on the field

Orioles will get beaten like a drum and lose 120 games

If it is Boston and LA in the World Series Iím going to the game but will start a go fund me for beer and food. Ed and the Skulpin will be going with me, so maybe an early go fund me to make it all happen.

Realmuto will go to the Dodgers

Harper will go to the Dodgers

That chump Machado will go to the Yanks on a short term deal, not the 10 years he is looking for.

Kershaw is done and will only have a few innings this year due to injury

If Harper does not go to the Dodgers, he will be a Cub. Dodgers will use the $$$ for some A list pitching.

Josh Donaldson will have a big year

Seattle will really really stink

Phillies and Atlanta will struggle mightily and not make the playoffs

As usual Iím open to some wagers...

I'm there but my daughter Stephanie will want to go, and if she does she's a dangerous sh#t talker...

late Xmas present - Kikuchi goes to the Mariners. Only question now is what will his nickname be, Kiku? or Kuchi? or maybe Kuchi-kuchi?

The Dodgers passed the point in the curve of their optimal potential to win it all...even if theyíd somehow managed to make it happen in Ď17 or Ď18, it would have been more about happenstance than actual cohesive skill as a team. Boston last year was a far better example of a skilled and honed team.

Since the Dís are likely to be in a period of re-structure, Iíd be surprised if they became contenders.

Giants are a dream Tad... it will be a painful visual all year with Ďdem guys. Always worth a watch though to see Crawford and Buster play. Wait for July and the Dodgers picking up Madbum in a trade...


Got damn... kinda sad to see Puig go. Special kinda critter he was. I bet he makes Votto nuts this year.

Yeah, I was kinda sad to see the manchild leave. Pretty sure he ainít gonna dig Cincinatti
and I rather suspect that will affect his play, not to mention inhibit his discipline regimen.

Bye bye Puig. Enjoy the humidity and heat. Hottest baseball I've ever experienced was a Reds game. Chapman still tossed it a 100 mph....

Angels will surprise and make the playoffs.
No matter where they go...Machado will have a higher OPS and WAR than Harper.
Houston will win the WS.
Aís will not suck.

This is all Fake News of course. Iím always hoping for the Cubbies, but would like to see a small market sneaker to get in the Series to mix it up a bit. I would like to see 5 billion go into building new outfield walls.

Yankees signed Tulowitzki to a one-year deal.

It's possible I have played more major league games this decade than Tulo.




I just checked the stats. He has in fact played more games this decade than me.

Tulo at league minimum is good to have around. He could play 3 or 4 games at short, a couple at 3rd and keep the dugout cleaned up. Probably wont get hurt pushing a broom so you might have him for the whole season, a first!

Hereís my bet Russ. A bottle of premium red that in 2019 the combined record of the Angels/Aís is better than the combined record of the Dodgers/Giants.
