Almost, I think the O's will win the East with the Jays getting the wild card. This will be the biggest shocker with the Yanks not making the post season. Yankee fans will be irate.

Trout has a "good" year but not as great as his rookie year. Soft-more slump sets in.

Cespedes continuously improves having a stellar season leading the A's to a second consecutive AL West title.

Harper has a break out season leading the Nats to win the NL east.

Sounds like there's a little animosity against the Giants but they'll edge the free-spending Dodgers to take the NL west again.

Indians newly pumped roster rallies behind Francona to edge the Tigers though they still struggle with pitching woes. (Edited- realized I can't give up on my own team)

NL Central is a toss up between Cards or Reds though I still hold onto hope the Pirates take it.

Indians shine but still struggle with pitching woes, still finishing with a better record than the Tigers. The Royals take the still weak AL Central.

Do you think Lincecum will bounce back, or has he seen the end of his star days?

I think he will bounce back. If he doesn't I think he may become a set up man in the pen and excel at it.

I think it'll be a tough up-hill battle for him. With the loss of velocity on his fastball he will most definitely have to adjust which hopefully will not strain his relatively small frame. I just don't see him repeating his '08-'09 cy-young electricity. He's just battled with consistency over the past couple years. Glimpses of dominance but then struggles. Hopefully something clicks and he finds a way to maintain that consistency.

I really hope he gets it back. I liked watching him pitch and it was bizarre to see things slip so fast. I read an article recently that he's feeling good entering the season and claims to have made some necessary adjustments in the off season. (Of course, he has to say all that). I definitely got the impression though that he's going to start listening (more) to the Giants rather than his dad. He seemed more open to change.

I was just about to go on a breathing treatment, when I thought of something else to add. Now that my treatment is over, here we go.

Not only will Nolan pitch 3 No-No's he will win the AL MVP, the World Series MVP and the Cy Young Award.

Did you intentionally type Angles as a cut down OR did you mess up and mean to type Angels?

Either way, I hate sellers on eBay who make this mistake when I'm looking for Nolan Ryan cards! So much so, that when I see it, I don't click on the item!

RE: Let's hear your BOLD predictions for 2013
trout and harper have sophomore slumps, while strasburg has a dominating season (again).

baltimore, chicago white sox, los angeles angels win their respective divisions, with oakland and detroit in as the wildcards.

washington, st. louis, los angeles dodgers win divisions, with arizona and philly as wildcards.

the two LAs will meet in the world series, with the angels winning it all on the back of pujols!
