I agree with you for the most of it. I'm a cardinals fan and I know they are going to be terrible. I think you were harsh on the pirates. They might do well this year. I would definitly agree with you on the Minnesota Twins....Best farm system and every position is solid other then 3rd base. I realize the mariners are weak....but they have decent hitting, mainly with the new power force of Jeff Clement who will likely take johjima's spot as catcher.    pretty legit projections

Thats why i put notes after most of the teams.  I just try and give my opinion with support.  Its to early to really tell what is going to happen anyways.  This is just for fun.

It seems to me that you have copied every other procrastinators predictions.  Why not think outside the box and really give some insight as to why a team is going to win.  Take the Brewers for example.  They lost their two top pitchers, but still have a nice lineup that if put together with some timely pitching could battle for the division title in the so called "bad division".  Being a Mariners fan myself, there is no reason to believe that with the pitching we have and a few timely hits, they couldn't battle for a division title in a notoriously weak division.  I like the idea of the predictions, but make it worth while to read.
