Opening day is Sunday night. The AL West is still short a team. The NL Central has one too many.
I will now regale (or repulse) you with my predictions for the 2010 season in Major League Baseball, which opens this coming Sunday night when the Boston Red Sox play host to the New York Yankees. Last year, I must confess I predicted the Yankees to have the worst record in all of MLB. I thought the team was aging, their minor league system decrepit and that Joe Girardi would be replaced by Luis Sojo by June. So you are more than welcome to take these predictions with several grains of salt. We’ll see how well I do come October.
