Ok im going to write my predictions down so when i sit there and say "i told you" people start accusing me of just getting it from ESPN.

first: The Phillies will win 92 games this season and Will win the divison.

second: Scott Kazmir will be shut down this season for Tommy John Surgery

Third: Joba Chamberlin will not be the ROTY But instead it will be Evan Longoria and possibly Jr Towles or Geovany Soto. Dont count out Joey Votto though

Fourth: Clayton Krenshaw will be a force at some point this season for the Los Angeles Dodgers.

fifth: My suprise team, the one that i said two months ago, is the Cincinatti Reds. NO I did not get this from Peter Gammons or Buster Olney is got this from my knowlege

sixth: Joe Savery will hit the majors before Carlos Carrasco

seventh: Antonio Bastardo. He will be pitching for Clearwater. I love him. (serious man crush on him)

eighth: Michael Bourn will be better than a "fourth outfielder" i dont understand why people sat there and loved the guy and as soon as he brings us a closer with question marks people start jumping off the bandwagon. He is good

ninth: IF my second predicition turns out to be incorrect than the Tampa Bay Rays will finish Third in the AL East.

tenth: Everyone should keep an eye on Lou Marson who i believe will start out the season in Reading. He is the future Catcher. I think Jason Jaramillio, a guy who i had pegged on this team at the start of the season. wont survive Philly because he doesnt bring a big bat he is more of a defensive catcher.

eleventh: Will this be the year that Gavin Floyd proves me right? I hope so.

Twelve: for the Phils to be successfull they need to trade Adam Eaton to the Youamori Giants. You know that trade that Kyle Kendrick was involved in. Well that was a prank. I would seriously do that trade is it was Eaton instead of Kendrick.

Those are my predictions any questions feel free.
