For the Texas Longhorns, JD2 has traditionally been an afterthought as compared to JD1, but it all changes this year. Briefly, here’s a rundown of guys either confirmed or likely to attend.

Anything that can go wrong will go wrong is that popular saying attributed to Eddie Murphy. It basically means, a night that starts off with anticipated rave reviews of the Norbit movie premier could end with you in the backseat of a car with a transvestite more weathered than Dennis Conner.

Cars will breakdown and burst into flames while idling in your driveway. Infants will fall ill, bad curry will tumble through the bowels, and cousin’s weddings will pop up at a moment’s notice.

2012 MLB Preview; American League

American League Preview: Two straight pennants and World Series losses, not this time. Foreshadow! More like a give away…

American League East
1. Tampa Bay Rays
2. New York Yankees WC
3. Boston Red Sox
4. Toronto Blue Jays
5. Baltimore Orioles

GET THIS MAN A NEW STADIUM

Unorthodox start here, but I’ll go backwards with my AL East analysis. Chris Davis, Tommy Hunter, Pedro Stop, Darren O’Day, Travis Adair, Taylor Teagarden, Clay Rapada, Willie Eyre, Zach Phillips. The Baltimore Orioles are essentially the Rangers AAAA affiliate. But they are trying, and in the right direction, aided by talented players that did not make the Rangers squad for various reasons. They will likely look up at all four of their division counterparts,

starting with the Toronto Blue Jays. The Jays have many talented bats including Jose Bautista and rising star third baseman Brett Lawrie, not to be confused with Jed Lowrie, which no one has ever done anyway. The wings and alcohol and all the turmoil that ended the Red Sox 2011 collapse is hopefully in the rear view mirror, with new manager Bobby Valentine finally leaving ESPN. But the Yankees will be stronger than Boston but not as strong as the beautiful masterpiece that Executive Vice President Andrew Friedman and company have built in Tampa Bay. The Rays could win 100 games. And Matt Moore is owned in 100 percent of fantasy baseball leagues on ESPN. 100 games. (more…)

NEW THIS YEAR: An extra Wild Card spot per league! Grab ‘em while/if you can!

New Astros Shortstop Jed Lowrie


I know, I know, the season has already started, but in order to properly make my 2012 Major League Baseball season predictions, I simply had to know if corner outfielder Justin Ruggiano was going to make the Astros opening day roster, (he didn’t) if newly acquired shortstop Jed Lowrie was starting the season on the Disabled List or not, and between Jordan Lyles, Kyle Weiland, and Lucas Harrell, who the heck was not making the initial pitching rotation?! So many questions, and these only concern 1/30 of so many unanswered questions that were finally resolved just hours ago – or concerning Lowrie, minutes.

But I have my answers, and without further adieu, I present you my 2012 baseball predictions.

Instead of a three part production that many of my readers called an “essay” for better or worse, you’re getting a clean, neat, easy-to-read division by division prediction. Saving the best for last, let us (me) begin.

National League East
1. Philadelphia Phillies
2. Atlanta Braves WC
3. Miami Marlins
4. Washington Nationals
5. New York Mets (more…)
