Secondhalf Soothsaying

Could this be "The Year"? Nah, probably not.

With the All Star break over, the real baseball season is upon us! Some of our original picks probably aren't happening (sorry, Pads fans) so we're taking a mulligan and picking all over again. Here's what our crystal balls are saying with 3 and a half months in the bag:





Dave:


NL West: D-Backs
NL Central: Cubs
NL East: Phillies
NL Wild Card: Brewers

AL West: Angels
AL Central: White Sox
AL East: Red Sox
Wild Card: Rays

World Series Prediction: Cubs defeat Red Sox in seven games in "Battle of the Curses." Chicago's acquisition of Rich Harden plays a key role in putting them over the top.

AL MVP: Josh Hamilton
AL Cy Young: Joe Saunders (fantasy owners, you're welcome)


NL MVP: Lance Berkman
NL Cy Young: Edison Volquez





Red:

NL West: D-Backs
NL Central: Cubs
NL East: Mets
NL Wild Card: Brewers

AL West: Oakland
AL Central: White Sox
AL East: Red Sox
Wild Card: Rays

World Series Prediction: Rays defeat the Cubs in 7, pushing Cubs fans into a serious depression. The entire north side of Chicago is put on suicide watch.





Liz:



NL West: Arizona
NL Central: Cubs
NL East: Mets
NL Wild Card: Marlins





AL West: Angels
AL Central: Minnesota
AL East: Rays
AL Wild Card: Red Sox



World Series Prediction: Minnesota over Marlins in the lowest rated telecast ever.

This must have been posted before the Dodgers got Manny.
