Thoughts:

Last year, I predicted a Dodgers-Yankees WS that L.A. would take in six. I got half that equation right, and with the Dodgers more fundamentally sound and the Yankees with a brilliantly underrated offseason, I shall make that call one more time. However, it’s the last time I will predict our boys to win it all. If they don’t, fire up the Gibson Clock and put me one of those cryosleep tubes from Alien until they finally do.

  1. Do you guys REALLY want to know my picks? LOL. First of all the NL West certainly is no lock because each team in our division will be playing its BEST baseball against the Dodgers and I could actually not be too surprised if Dodgers are under .500 for the year against the other NL West teams. Unlike what Roberts said, that he thinks this year’s team is already better than last year’s team, i believe otherwise to be honest. Who will be in the PS from each division? My bet is that these predictions above are fairly accurate, however, EXCEPT that I cannot see Dodgers reaching the WS… I hope I am wrong but I just don’t see that this year’s team will be good enough…..Enough said..

  2. You guys can’t honestly believe the Dodgers would beat any of the AL teams you have them beating in the World Series. I’ve noticed a lot of people on various sites picking the braves to do more than they did last year I just don’t see that being possible The Phillies and Nationals are way better there’s nothing special at all about the braves. I think the Dodgers will either fall to the Brewers or Cardinals in the nlcs or get demolished by the Astros, Yankees, or Red Sox. I say if the astros or redsox win the pennant before the Dodgers we should just tank the nlcs and go home you can’t lose 3 WS in a row and then on top of that make it a repeat loss to somebody
