I think the Braves are talented, but taking the AL East is tough, I'd be willing to bet we dont finish in the top 5 in the AL East.......



Whatever, you know what I meant smart guy. ;-7


Haha, it's not often I am able to grab a spot like that......... anyways I think it's the Braves division to lose. with the health concerns and slow starts by the Phils I think the age is starting to show. However we need these things to happen

1.)Hudson to come back strong, if he can come be the innings eater he normally is, pitch around that 3.5 mark or lower and stay healthy.

2.)Chipper to stay off the DL, we can rest him every 3rd day and line it up with off days to give him the rest. but having his bat in the lineup is nice.

3.)Heyward to keep pace, guy is having a solid year, should be a 20/30 guy and if he can clip the ball near .300 really ne a force in the lineup.

4.)Hanson stays healthy, guy is a cy young type of pitcher. But if he isn't at least 90% we wont be as effective.


Those 4 things there are key imo, if we cant do those things we will be sitting home come OCT.

The Phils definitely do not look good this year. Victorino and Pence look like their only competent hitters. The Braves should take the AL East this year as long as Hanson stays healthy.

The Nationals look like they have a strong starting rotation too. I like Edwin Jackson a lot this year, Jordan Zimmermann has been incredibly efficient, Gio Gonzalez is looking really good, Strasburg is....Strasburg, and Detwiler is one of the better 5th starters in all of baseball.


I wouldnt count the Phillies out though... they can certainly have a second half surge if all of their players are healthy. I know Cliff Lee just hit the disabled list, but he will return... and its hard to count out anybody that has 3 complete aces like Lee/Hamels?Halladay.

Even the Marlins could make a push if Josh Johnson and Giancarlo Stanton get their acts together.

The Mets are off to a great start but they should fade away.

I expect the NL east to be extremely competetive this year, and a lot of fun to watch in September.

Welcome to the 2012 NL West. Little league teams commit less errors.

You need to fly down to Kinston Tuesday night then to watch Evan's 4 year old T Ball game. Heck, we will have 4 errors on the first ball hit in play. :-b

41 runs, 13 home runs, 41 RBI, 2.39 ERA, 0.98 WHIP through 69 IP...and I will end up tied for the week if my opponent scores two more runs with Morales, Uggla, Reynolds, Dunn, J Weeks, Bourn still playing, thanks to: Reimold, Beltre, De Aza, Ortiz, Granderson, Kelly Johnson all sitting out/rained out/injured today :-X

Wow, Ron Roenicke is a douche. Guys brings up Peralta in the pen yesterday, with the ability to put him in in two different innings of a six run game...and instead he chooses the ninth of a two run game to give him his first big league action :|

Somehow my opponent's entire lineup played today, and managed four runs and one RBI, so I barely pulled off the 6-4 win :-°
