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.
