If Ben Sheets is #2 in the cy young race and wins' 16 games I think he'll end up being on the strike out leader board...


In general your numbers are all too high.

Its really quiet simple. Barry Bonds hit 11 homeruns and had 26 RBIs in the NLCS and then tests positive for steroids. Bud decides that the one man team must be punished and puts HIS team in the fall classic. Duh.

thanks for all the input. As for the Lofton/Conine thing, well Lofton hit .335 last year and he still looks like he is a decent player even if he lost a few steps. And for Conine, I am just a fan of his. I have seen him play live dozens of times and watch him on T.V. all the time. The guy can flat out hit. He hit .304 last year and I think at Camden Yards he should put up around the same #'s.

im most surprised about your predictions with beltre gomes pena hitting 35 hr's. Do you really think beltre is going to have a bounceback year? What about for the rest of his numbers and the numbers for the other 2. I think the numbers in general are a little high also but its an interesting list.

You really think TWO teams from the NL East are going to beat Atlanta this year?

Well, that might make sense, considering it looks like you've got Smoltz's arm falling off included in your predictions.

Anyhow, way to lay it out there, man. I appreciate your optimisms on Kinsler and Holliday. My keeper squad needs 'em to produce. :-b

Carlos Pena deserves to be picked in the first round!?


Not in my drafts he's gonna hit 35 HR. :-°

I got Smoltz like 4th or 5th in ERA Foreman. To answer the qustions about Beltre/Pena/Gomes...

I have a feeling about Beltre. It' just a feeling. I thought he would have a very disapointing season last year moving to Seattle and such, but now I think he is a little more adjusted. Anyway I don't think he is going to be an MVP candidate or anything, but I see a .270-35-100 season from him.

For Carlos Pena, he was one of the hottest players the second half of last season. If he played the full 162 games I think his HR would of projected to come out to 44 or so. I know he hit 18 in like 60 some games. If he gets the ABs, I think he is going to finally bust out and put up the same numbers as Beltre.

And Johnny Gomes, I know my opinon on him is different that many others. I watch 90% of the games the D-Rays play just because I love watching their young team. And Gomes if foreal. He is going to start full time this year, and I see something like .263-35-110-14.

Also, I meant to type Brewers over Giants. That's just a typo.

Pena is a mirage. It's not that he doesn't have the power, he does. But he is a second half player. He sucked so bad the last two seasons that in '04 he was almost sent down to the minors, and last year he was. He is way too streaky and has too much competition to stay in the line-up long enough to reach those numbers. Now if you had projected Chris Shelton to hit 35 dingers...

How does Roy Halladay pitch enough innings to win 21 games but not get at least 172 K's...??? :-?
