    Default The 2012 MLB Thread

    Might as well. I'm really happy "Baseball Tonight" is up and running again. Also, I have high expectations for the Diamondbacks this year. Especially after the off season moves we made.

    Even though I think we're destined to miss the playoffs again, I'm glad that the Dodgers were able to avoid arbitration by signing Clayton Kershaw to a two year deal the other day.

    2012 has lots of exciting things going on.

    Should be neat to see how Pujols does for the Angels, how Florida with Jose Reyes works out, I wanna see if Pineda can handle the Bronx.

    Really? Why? Their rotation got worse, their bullpen is still a relative mess as I don't see Javy Guerra as a legitimate closer and think he'll be exposed this season.

    We ended last season quite well, and that sort of thing tends to spill over into the first half of the next season. Also Guerra was 21/23, not bad.

    I'm not saying they're going to be terrible, but they really haven't done much to improve the team's offense and that was what did them in so often last year. I'm sure it will be nice to have the ownership situation resolved, and if Ethier can be more productive I'm sure that will help, but I think we're destined for another .500 year again unless someone gets brought in or if one of the younger players has a break-out year.

    Ha, yes. I love how there are so many Pac-12/NL West/NFC West fans on this board.

    He also had a FIP of 3.40 and an xFIP of 4.07 which suggests that he was rather lucky last season. I would expect quite a regression next year. Anybody playing fantasy baseball this year, there's your tip of the day. Stay clear of Guerra he'll probably lose his job to Kenley Jansen at some point during the season.

    I think so too. -I predict that the Dodgers will end up with around 80 or so wins at the end of the season. Same as 2011.

    Go Red Sox though. I like that nobody expects them to be as good this season. I actually think they'll win more games than they did last year when everybody was picking them to win the WS.

    Not exactly true. De la Rosa and Eovaldi are two young pitchers with talent who pitched fairly well last season and could improve this year's rotation if they make the next leap in their development.

    De La Rosa's coming off Tommy John surgery though. Won't be ready until August at best.

    I'm just glad I got Angels tickets as a Christmas gift. Pujols is gonna be expensive as the year goes on. Unless he falls into the visitor dugout and the Angels have another mediocre season.

    I'm expecting 2 NL West teams to be in the playoffs this season. My early predictions are Phillies, Reds, Diamondbacks, and Dodgers.

    I never really liked baseball, because it's the sport that I suck at the most. But I watched the World Series last year, and I was very entertained. I think it finally snapped for me because I stopped thinking of it as guys running around bases, and more as a pitcher trying to throw the ball to the catcher, without fail. That paradigm shift really made the game intriguing for me. I hope to be able to catch the Rangers at Yankee Stadium this year.

    I used to hate baseball and now it's one of my favorite sports. Never really played it either.

    The Boston Red Sox will be off the national radar screen this year and already picked to finish third or fourth in the AL East. This means they will probably win the division going away. If Beckett, Bucholz and Lester can stay fit and healthy and pitch well into September, the Sawx will contend.

    Shored up bullpen with Bailey, Melancon and Padilla after losing Papelbon. Bard and Aceves will probably contend for the 4th/5th starter spot. Matsuzaka should help things in July going forward after he rehabs the Tommy John.

    Love the Punto and Shoppach signings. Aviles and Punto will be keeping the SS position warm for Jose Iglesias as soon as he learns how to hit big league pitching.

    If Carl Crawford becomes even half the player he was when he was #1 Sox-killer for the Devil Rays, I will be happy. Last year was, as my kids say, "epic fail."
