Poz Provides His Predictions

To whet your baseball appetities, Sports Illustrated’s Joe Posnanski has predictions for each team and makes division breakdowns on his blog.

Catchers and pitchers report for some teams tomorrow.

I’m going to wait on making any predictions until the regular season is upon us. But I will say I still think the AL Central will be a two-team race between the Minnesota Twins and the Chicago White Sox.

I see Posnanski has the Twins winning the Central by seven games. But I don’t think it’s going to be that easy, and people shouldn’t dismiss the White Sox too quickly.

Is Andruw Jones their starting DH? Yes. Is that absurd? Of course.

But that rotation still has a bona fide ace in Jake Peavy. Then there’s Mark Buehrle, Gavin Floyd and John Danks, all of whom had ERAs of 4.06 or less last season.

Don’t get me wrong. I think the Twins are the favorites. But if they win the division by seven games, then a lot of things went right.

Anyway, it’s a good read. Check it out above.

    One of my hobbies/pastimes is saving all my sports mags and rereading them over the winter and saving all the pertinent ones, esp the forecast issues. I like to see how ‘smart ‘ these prognosicaters are , and they seldom are -smart or better than any average joe who blogs here. Sports Ill has been predicting the Yankees to win the World Series just about every year last decade , except last year when they said the METS would win it all . Do me/us a favor and check out how well these writers have done in the past to see how relevant they are today. SI is basically just one man’s opinion. Those guys do litle better in other sports , last fall they predicted it would be the Bears and Patriots in the Super Bowl!
