The Likely 10 - Bold Predictions

Spring training is up and several developments are starting to rumble. Usually, sports analyst give their forecasts before the regular season starts. This is actually premeditated as most of the expected outcomes in the new season are based on last season. Although I am not an expert in baseball, I can see ten events happening this year.

10. Daisuke Matzusaka, the coveted Red Sox import will have an outstanding season. He will challenge Johan Santana and Roy Halladay for the AL CY Young and turn the 'gyroball' into a dreaded arsenal.

9. The NL will witness a two-man race for the league's MVP. The Cardinals' Albert Pujols and the Phillies' Ryan Howard will captivate all baseball fans. On the other hand, Alex Rodriguez will get his third AL MVP besting David Ortiz again.

8. The Chicago Cubs will remain ring-less and its current spending almost amounting to $300 million will not provide expected results. Lou Pinella will be fired and some of their top players will voice out their intentions to be traded.

7. Barry Bonds will break the all-time career home-run record of Hank Aaron this season. Despite of the feat, Bond will be continuously hounded steroids issues and possible federal indictment.

6. Alex Rodriguez will opt to stay with the Yankees, but trade rumors will continue to increase with several getting interested with the talented All-Star.

5. Roger Clemens will defy retirement and will pitch for the Yankees. This means that the Bronx Bombers are sure bets to win the AL East and become a force in the playoffs.

4. In the AL, Cleveland will make a surprise surge and Kansas City will continue to drown in the bottomless pit. On the other hand, the Atlanta Braves will rediscover its lost magic while the Pirates will remain the Pirates.

3. The New York Yankees, Cleveland Indians, and Anaheim Angels will win their respective divisions and Boston Red Sox will complete the cast. The New York Mets, St. Louis Cardinals, Los Angeles Dodgers, will have playoff guarantees and the Atlanta Brave will catch the bus.

2. The Boston Red Sox will beat the New York Yankees for the AL crown and the Dodgers will edge the Mets for the NL pennant.

1. The Red Sox will beat the Dodgers in the World Series and David Ortiz will be crowned as the Most Valuable Player.
