    I dont think the Red Army will be too good this year. Gotta look out for thos Brewers–theyre stacked this year. Of course, my Cards will take everyone out!

    BTW, did you see that I-70 Baseball picked the Cubs to win the Div?!

      You know, I always look at the Cards as contenders.
      And I always will as long as Pujols is playing first base.
      Would not be surprised if St. Louis regains the Central title in 2011.

      Milwaukee’s starting pitching is for real. No doubt.
      Its bullpen, however, is very thin, which is a big weakness.
      The Brewers have enough offense to blanket the problem.
      But that changes come October against pitching like Philly’s.

      The Reds are scary talented–pitching, hitting & fielding.
      Now it’s whether they can handle the pressure of expectations.
      They’re poised to have another strong year, if they can keep a mental toughness.

      And for what it’s worth…I still think the Cubs have a shot to contend, as well.
      If healthy, there’s enough proven talent to compete for the division.
      Last year was a disaster for this very reason. Too much talent for a 75-win season.
