99%? That's ridiculous. I predict that your prediction will be wrong.
I'll go with 97%
A real one: Harper will finish '13 with better stats collectively than Trout.
Try another: Dickey will continue to perform, though more in line with a James Shield than a David Price.
Oh, this one is good: The Cubs will lose 100 games for the 2nd season in a row, but Theo, Hoyer, and Sveum will survive.
This one is bold: Crawford goes back to 30 SB, 12+HR, and bats .300.
I like this more: Adrian Gonzolez goes back to 40HR but bats .300+ doing it this time.
<snore> Dunn pulls another 40HR, .200 avg (yes, last year was an aberration)
Medlen continues to dominate and challenge for a Cy Young.
Breakthru SP include Fiers and Detwiler
Cespedes get a nasty case of sophomore slump.
The 3rd boldest prediction: Braves win World Series with Medlen as Cy Young, Heyward challenging for a MVP, Freeman with 35+ HR, Uggla back to his usual self. Beachy as this year's Medlen coming back for the 2nd half. Marlin liquidation sales continues with Ozzie fired during the season. Phil gets a wildcard spot with Utley as the come-back player of the year. Howard finishes 2nd in the same award category.
The penultimate boldest prediction: Seattle wakes up and decides to move the walls in. Seattle challenges for a wildcard spot with King Felix contending for a cy-young along with Ramirez. Montero breakout. Ackley, Seagers, Smoaks, and Saunders continue to develop. Jason becomes this year's Yadier Molina.
The boldest prediction: Josh Rutledge becomes a top-3 SS in fantasy (he's got SS eligibility even though he'll play 2B 50% of the time. The other 50%...here comes another prediction...he'll sub in for Tulo, who will be DL bound for half the season again. it's an annual ritual for Tulo).
