You can check out my predictions over at the Hardball Times this morning. People will call me crazy for picking the Reds to win the National League pennant but I really think this team has some talent (although some of it got kicked down to Triple A to start the season). I also think giving Jay Bruce and Homer Bailey a month or two in the minors will help them out for the long haul. I’m not a huge fan of Dusty Baker, but he does seem to get his teams to play for him so I view this as a sort of a perfect storm.
I thought picking the Rays to finish third would put me by myself too but great minds think alike and almost as many people picked them as the Rays. And it almost worries me that most of the people picked the Tigers.
