I predict the Brewers will finish the season at 88-74. With that record, the Brewers will win the wild card and host at least one play-off game.
I would settle for any record that gets the Brewers to the play-offs and would be ecstatic with a record good enough to win the division. Then again, with the Cardinals pitching and hitting, I don't think the Brewers will overtake them. Just not enough pitching for the Brew Crew.
- If Pujols gets hurt, Prince could win the MVP.
- Then again, Prince might not be a Brewer by the end of the year.
- Randy Wolf will disappoint, but not on the Jeff Suppan level. He'll be good, just not ace material.
- Yovani Gallardo, on the other hand, will be an ace and prove it each start.
- If Yo stays healthy, he will be top 3 in the Cy Young voting.
- Alcides Escobar will finish in the top 3 in NL Rookie of the Year voting. He should win it, but won't have the sexy stats like that beast in Atlanta will.
- Jeff Suppan will not end the season on the Brewers active roster. Doug Melvin will either cut his ass or stash Soup on the DL.
- The Cubs will still suck.
- The Brewers will finish with a winning record against the Cubs.
- Prince will finish in the top 5 in MVP voting.
- Craig Counsell will once again prove he's the best bench player in the league. Yes. The League.
- Corey Hart will end the 2010 season on a different team.
- The Brewers will have at least 3 All-Stars. Prince and Braunie are locks. Maybe Hoffman or Yo.
- The Brewers will somehow piss off some team. It might be a team celebration. It might be Braunie's attitude. Either way, the bean balls will be a flying.
- Matt's going to miss yelling "J, J, J, J" at the games.
- The Brewers will finish above .500 and be in contention for a play-off spot all year.
I hope to get to at least 2 games a month. I do want to get some club seats this year and maybe a Friday's table. Actually, I don't REALLY care where I sit as long as the Brewers win!
I'm sure many people will disagree with my prognostications, but who gives a fuck. If Yo or Prince or Braunie goes down with an injury, the Brewers season is over. If everything goes according to plan, more baseball awaits Brewer fans in October.
GO BREW CREW GO!
