It's Opening Day (Morning?) tomorrow, as Daisuke goes up against Joe Blanton at the Tokyo Dome. As is the tradition here, I'm going to make my annual baseball predictions. Check back in the fall and see how I did.

AL East: Boston Red Sox (who else?)
AL Central: Detroit Tigers (with that lineup and if they get any kind of late inning bullpen work at all, they are going to be scary)
AL West: Los Angeles Angels (the best of the West)
AL Wild Card: Cleveland Indians (the Curse of A-Rod continues!)

NL East: Atlanta Braves (sorry, Johan, but Smoltz and Glavine relive their glory days one more time)
NL Central: Chicago Cubs (they just seem to have more good players than everyone else in the division)
NL West: Los Angeles Dodgers (I could have picked the D-Backs, Padres or Rockies as well; this division is just too close to call but I had to pick someone. Let's see if Torre can get it done without Steinbrenner's $$$ backing him up)
NL Wild Card: New York Mets (They get some satisfaction after last year's collapse)

AL Champion: Boston
NL Champion: Chicago
World Series Champion: Boston (back to back, baby!)

AL MVP: Magglio Ordonez
AL Cy Young: Josh Beckett

NL MVP: David Wright
NL Cy Young: Johan Santana

Go Sox!

I think that if Randy Wolf is healthy, the Padres have the most solid rotation in baseball. All the starters beyond Peavy and Young would be at least #2's in another team's rotation.
