TTM Success- Eric Byrnes

I got a success from Eric Byrnes today in the mail! Finally, breaks my cold streak of 3 1/2 months without a TTM. He also answered my letter too!

Baseball Review and Predictions- Division by Division

As I glanced at the box scores and the standings this morning,   The Dodgers haven't obviously done anything with it and I ponder if that will be a problem in the future or a distraction to the Dodgers. Now on to the predictions, starting with the American League:

Rookie of the Year: Xander Bogaerts, Boston Red Sox SS
Bogaerts was the Red Sox's top prospect was absolutely a BEAST in the minor leagues. Will not be surprised if he leads the Red Sox back to the playoffs once again
Cy Young: Justin Verlander, Detroit Tigers
You can't STOP THIS MAN! He had incredible stats and proved to be one of the best pitchers to play on the planet. He had 15 wins last year and will prove to be dominant in a tough AL Central Division.
MVP: Miguel Cabrera, Detroit Tigers
Stats don't lie. Look at his past five years' worth of stats and also why the Tigers would be foolish enough to pay him $300 million if he wasn't the best player on the planet.

AL East Projected Standings:

  1. Tampa Bay Rays- 92-68
  2. Boston Red Sox- 88-72
  3. Baltimore Orioles- 82-80
  4. Toronto Blue Jays- 77-85
  5. New York Yankees- 74-88
AL Central Projected Standings:
  1. Detroit Tigers- 94-68
  2. Kansas City Royals- 84-78
  3. Cleveland Indians- 82-82
  4. Chicago White Sox- 77-85
  5. Minnesota Twins- 64-98
AL West Projected Standings:
  1. Texas Rangers- 90-72
  2. Oakland Athletics- 88-74
  3. Seattle Mariners- 86-76
  4. Los Angeles Angels- 84-78
  5. Houston Astros- 62-100

National League Predictions:
Rookie of the Year: Chris Owings, Arizona Diamondbacks SS
Owings looks very strong in the first 13 games of his professional career with the D-Backs. Numbers are down so far, but I predict he'll make a strong improvement and help the D-Backs in the NL West.
Cy Young: Clayton Kershaw, Los Angeles Dodgers
Kershaw looked good in his first start before being shut down to injury. I doubt this will be a concern, even though he is missing a couple of starts. The best pitcher in the NL BY FAR.
MVP: Paul Goldschmidt, Arizona Diamondbacks 1B
Goldschmidt is very strong and tough. He should provide the D-Backs with the stability they need at first base. Only missed two games last year! Wow! Very durable.

NL East Projected Standings:
  1. Washington Nationals- 91-71
  2. Atlanta Braves- 89-73
  3. Miami Marlins- 79-83
  4. New York Mets- 70-82
  5. Philadelphia Phillies- 69-83
NL Central Projected Standings:
  1. St. Louis Cardinals- 92-70
  2. Cincinnati Reds- 88-74
  3. Pittsburgh Pirates- 81-81
  4. Milwaukee Brewers- 74-88
  5. Chicago Cubs- 66-96
NL West Projected Standings:
  1. Los Angeles Dodgers- 93-69
  2. San Francisco Giants- 90-72
  3. Arizona Diamondbacks- 85-77
  4. Colorado Rockies- 80-72
  5. San Diego Padres- 75-87
World Series Predictions
NL: Cardinals
AL: Tigers
WINNER: Cardinals in 7, Oscar Taveras or Michael Wacha- WS MVP

5 Under the Radar Propsects

I'm going to list some "under the radar" prospects and how they will or could make an impact in the near future.
  • Arismendy Alcantara- Chicago Cubs
Alcantra made a substantial in the 2013 Futures Game last year. I believe he will be up sooner or later. My ETA for him: September 2015 or 2016. Ranked #100 on BA's Top 100 Prospects.
  • Joey Gallo- Texas Rangers
Gallo has the most raw power in the minors as of RIGHT NOW. He will help the Rangers in the future in the outfield with Leonys Martin also in the future. ETA for him: 2016. Ranked #66 on BA's Top 100 Prospects.
  • Austin Meadows- Pittsburgh Pirates
Meadows has a lot of potenial. He is free swinging and hopes to prove himself in the first minor league season. It should be very exciting to watch him play in three years with Starling Marte and McCutchen in the outfield! ETA for him: 2017. Ranked #49 on BA's Top 100 prospects.
  • Corey Seager- Los Angeles Dodgers 
Seager appeared very fatigued while playing shortstop last year. Transition to 3rd base may be needed soon. Those small changes should have no effect on his rising stardom to the Show. ETA for him: 2016. Ranked #37 on BA's Top Propsects
  • Lucas Giolito- Washington Nationals
Giolito is the best pitcher in the Nats organization. He needs to be healthy in order for him to succeed in the farm system and up onto the Bigs. ETA for him: 2015. Ranked #21 on BA's Top Prospects.

Cleaning House (Selling)

Last year, I called around to virtually every professional baseball team and minor league team and asked for things called "Pocket Schedules" I was virtually engulfed with the idea of pocket schedules. Now that phase is coming to an end. I have a bunch of pocket schedules I'd like to sell a bunch, but I need to generate interest. Let me know what you guys think.


Alright so I'm going to do a giveaway soon, but I need to know how many people are interested in my giveaways and contests. Please comment or email:

I'll need at least 5-10 people to generate interest.

My Prediction for MLB Season 2014

As the days of baseball are with us (not in Minnesota, look outside) it's time to predict the Twins record for this year. I'm saying right now.. 65-97. The Twins had horrible loss last night.. awful. Hoping Gardy can get his 1,000th win tonight v. Indians!
