Real high on the LA teams. Angels by 12 over Texas and the Dodgers having a winning record are both bold predictions. I like the Brew Crew in the central.

I think both have the best teams in baseball and the best players with Kemp and Pujols. Also do not count out Kendry Morales having a huge year. He has the makings of superstar even after injury

i think the cubs will win the nl central and surprise alot of people

cubsfan82 said...

I hope you are right Cubsfanbrianblog! I think they have the starting pitching but do they have he bats and bullpen to back that up. I don't see the NLC being very good so anything is possiable.

I am with you cubsfan82 I think that they have the starting pitching but I also believe that they have the hitting. A lot of the runs this spring have been off of starters from other teams not the guys trying to make the team. GO CUBS!!
