Comments on the Upcoming Season

The NL Cy Young race should be an exciting one with Roy Halladay added to the fold, potential comeback seasons from Cole Hamels, Carlos Zambrano, Roy Oswalt, and Brandon Webb, and a solid core of dominant NL pitchers starting to take shape in Johan Santana, Dan Haren, Tim Lincecum, Adam Wainwright, and Chris Carpenter.

This could also be the year that Yovani Gallardo and Ubaldo Jimenez add their names to the list of elite NL pitchers, to say nothing of Stephen Strasburg.

Albert Pujols has gotten to the "How do you not pick him" point in his career with respect to the NL MVP Award. Nevertheless, here's how I pick against him: I have Ryan Howard picked to win the homerun and RBI crown this season. If he does this, and if the Phillies win the division again, people are going to start vastly overrating Howard, and his second MVP should be a dunk.

I have the Rays going to the World Series, but I certainly didn't mean to. Here's what happened: the Mariners upset the Yankees in the first round of the playoffs, and the Rays easily topple the Tigers, the best of a bad division. From there, how do the Mariners get past the Rays. There is no way.

If, as I have predicted, the Braves win the World Series in Bobby Cox's final season as manager, Disney may not even wait until next season before turning it into a movie. Watch for Brian Cox as Bobby Cox, Jeff Daniels as Derek Lowe, Tim McGraw as Chipper Jones, and Omar Epps as Jason Heyward.
