2009 Predictions

As you may have heard, baseball season began today. It's glorious... I know. And it seems that every self-respecting website is publishing predictions for the 2009 season from their panel of experts. Well here at QatB we have neither experts, nor self-respect. But we do have panel. It's actually faux wood panel, like the stuff on the side of the Buick Roadmaster wagon that E$ used to drive in college.

So we feel like that's good enough to qualify us to make some predictions of our own. If nothing else it'll give us something to talk shit about all summer long.

For the record:

Crew -- 90-72. Same as last year, even without CC and the Man-gina.

FPMKE said...

Since "over .500" looks like a Llama comment, I choose 82-80.

Shit, you really want my picks - you even left a blank area for me. Well, then, I guess I have to finish my statistical analysis and get them to you post haste.

Sheets' Va Jay Jay said...

Notice how a space was left for Moongoose but not for Kenosha? You would think that someone on their iPhone all day could contribute.

I'm also glad I'm the only one that believes in the National League. Besides Braun, it's my only homer pick.

You fucking douche-bag. You didn't put my AL MVP selection. Jason Fucking Bay. The Canadian will take over the AL.

Reid You Animal! said...

Wait, that was serious? I thought you only threw his name out to illustrate your original point which was "Not Pedroia!"

Devil's Threesome said...

No, I am serious. There's such a dearth of good hitters in the AL (compared to NL). I thought that was a fun, under the radar pick. He was on fire for Boston at the end of last year.

That was a sweeeet ride! Driving down the freeway was like riding on a cloud. The roadmaster gets a thumbs up in my book.

where did my picks go?

Reid You Animal! said...

They're there. They just got cut off a bit and had fought long enough to get this thing posted. If you click the image you can see the full view.

Rubie Q said...

No shit talking yet?

Fine, I'll start.

Hey Kirby -- when you say you think Ervin Santana is going to win the Cy Young, did you mean this year or next year when he gets back from Tommy John surgery?

Reid You Animal! said...

I really don't have much to say. I picked the Brewers to win the division, along with both the Cubs AND Red Sox to miss the postseason. I'm just sitting here quietly awaiting my thrashing.

I did want to pick Travis Snider for AL RoY but didn't have space to both pick that and bash the Cubs and Red Sox.

Devil's Threesome said...

Santana is coming back in May (or so my fantasy team is hoping).

I'm really surprised by all the Yankees love. I think that's a trainwreck waiting to happen. And by trainwreck, I mean lose in the ALCS.

Reid - why do Baltimore fans hate Tiexeira? I really know nothing about baseball.

Rubie Q said...

Yep, "elbow tightness" and "visit with Dr. Yocum" often add up to a Cy Young caliber season. Start getting that thigh ligament in shape for the ligament replacement surgery, Erv.

Reid You Animal! said...

They hate him because he's a Maryland boy that declined the overtures (and large sums of money) from the hometown squad while he was a free agent this winter. Or at least that's my best guess.

Devil's Threesome said...

they were giving him the business yesterday - wow!
