Here are the rest of my picks for the 2009 season.
Before I bring forth my magical, mystical, total guaranteed (just kidding) picks, just remind yourself that SI picked the Tigers to win it all in 2008. They based it on Miguel Cabrera, Dontrelle Willis, Ivan Rodriguez. A slew of stars the Tigers picked up to make there lineup look like the 21st century version of Murderers Row. They did not come close, finishing in forth place.
Things just don't turn out the way you see it on paper. The "what ifs" and "if this" are all over the blogs and editorials to let everyone know they know it all.
OK, here I go. A drum roll please.
Wild card: Cardinals
NL Pennant: New York Mets
Wild card: Rays
