Let the intentional walking begin
Posted by keithosaunders on April 2, 2017
Baseball games are really going to fly by now. Forget the fact that every single close play at first base warrants a three minutes review, intentional walks are now automatic! Now that’s progress.
This year, rather than a normal baseball prediction post, I’m going to present a baseball soulful (wishful thinking) prediction post.
In the NL East the Mets, flush with pitching, Cespedes, and just enough hitting, will dominate and cruise to their third ever World Series victory.
In the NL Central the Cubs will revert to form and miss the playoffs – the first of 110 more years without a championship. The Pittsburgh Pirates will win the division with the Brewers taking the wild card.
In the NL West, having lost track of whether or not they’re supposed to win in an odd year, the Giants will begin 166 straight years of last place finishes. The Dodgers will win the west, losing to the Mets in the NLCS.
Moving along to the junior circuit, in the AL West we have my dark horse prediction: My East Bay homies, the Oakland As will shock the world! You read it here first.
In the AL Central the Detroit Tigers will win the division, as well as the pennant before losing to the Mets in a 6 game World Series.
In the Al East the Yankees will go 6-156. The Bluejays will win the division and Joey Batista will set an MLB record with double digit bat flips. Baltimore gets the wild card.
There you have it: Major League Baseball according to Keitho.
