I went with Cincinnati, I feel they have the best balance of pitching, hitting, bullpen and bench. St Louis has the best arms, no doubt, but their bats dont excite me. They are one pulled hamstring (a likely possibility) from being third overall. Milwaukee is intriguing. If they ever get their pen figured out (and they are close), they could be dangerous, and easily take the division. Id really like to see Pittsburgh finish above .500, and i hope the Cubs never finish above .500 again.

so there.

at this pace, Yuniesky Betancourt should be tying is career HR/RBI marks by June 1.

I bet a pee test is a coming.

Yuni Betancourt for real or what? Currently sitting on the WW in a 12 teamer. His 1B, 2B, 3B eligibility certainly helps.

He played winter ball in the Mexican league and concentrated on learning how to hit off speed pitches. I'm still not buying it though since nothing but his HR seem to have changed.

Gomez is another story though. The power stroke started in 2011 and carried through 2012 and now this year the plate discipline is coming around. Not so much in the BB department but working deeper into counts and swinging at better pitches to hit. He could actually end up a post hype sleeper.

i find it appropriate that they keep running out this commercial in between innings for the Mets/Fish game
