Fri, Apr 3, 2009 at 4:06 PM

Really how many words should it take to predict a season? If yours is a first place prognostication, we say a single word can do it. Then each squad after the leaders gets another brick in the wall. Presenting tomorrow's standings today! Oh, we think the A's will be in last.



AL WEST
Angels - Relentless
Mariners - Surprise Team
Rangers - Want their Manager
A's - Laughable pitching, yet unfunny.

AL CENTRAL
Tigers - Redeemed
Twins - Always there
Indians - Biggest AL jinx
White Sox - Love Ozzie, not team
Royals - Ridiculous trendy pick, going nowhere.

AL EAST
Red Sox - Insufferable
Yankees - Girardi? Fired
Blue Jays - Still miss Scuataro
Rays - Coach returns to Pumpkin
Orioles - Irrelevant for over a decade

NL WEST
Diamondbacks - Pitcherific!
Giants - So unpleasant
Dodgers - What went wrong?
Padres - Ballpark is nice though

NL CENTRAL
Cardinals - Solid
Cubs - Wild Card
Astros - Carlos Lee rules
Reds - Usual second-half fade
Brewers - Once again off the radar
Pirates - Setting record for all time futility

NL EAST
Phillies - Blanton?
Marlins - Tropical A's
Mets - Manager fired too
Braves - Now with less pitching
Nationals - Third incarnation still god-awful
