With spring training in full swing, it is time for predictions to be made, teams to be put up on pedestals, and others to either stay in, or be thrown into, the basement.
Predictions will be done by division going West to East, starting with the American League and then going to the National League.
I am looking forward to this baseball season more than others in recent memory. There are a lot of teams that took steps forward in the offseason, which is something that should provide heated races long into September. There are also a lot of young stars who will be making impacts and who will be asked to play huge roles, which can make or break a team's season.
Will the Giants repeat as World Series champs?
Will a traditional power win or will a team that has recently struggled find a way to win?
Only time will tell, but right now is the best time of the season: the time to be bold and put your stamp on what you see for happening in 2011. Here's to another year of baseball.
