here comes the mad rush of injuries to begin 2012...
who else will get hit with the bug? peavy? youkilis? Bay, wright?
hamilton and cruz are top choices.
theyre all top choices. the answers could be Bedard and mccarthy. Both regularly make DL trips.
My choices to hit the DL preseason were carpenter, halladay, feliz hernandez and weaver, carpenter is on the DL! So i got one correct at least.
darvish,feliz and holland of the Rangers could also hit the DL this year making way for ogando or feldman.
here are the predictions: Cy young easy choices would be verlander and kershaw
top runner ups are fister, yes fister! D price, Matt Moore and weaver.
dark horses are fister, yes fister! matt moore, again, shields, haren and Yu Darvish.
the nl could be Cliff Lee, halladay and even a vote or two for Vance Worley.
im liking alverez and smyly as well as luebke and holland as decent surprises. Nova could also be a 16 game winner.
Luebke and holland could reach 15 Wins. holland had 16 last year. Holland is also a candidate to make a DL stint as well.
Bounceback Years could be Kendrys Morales. His name changed pretty much ruined him.
Fister will go 200 inn w. 170K and a 2.99 ERA which is why I have him as a Cy Young candidate. He could easily rack up 17 and maybe 19 W
Holland could go 200 inn and 170 K as well.
Darvish is the most intriguing. I think he gets over 195 inn and 175 K w. a 3.25 ERA playing for the Angels. He has an advantage over the hitters.
Moore will get over 199 Ks a rare feat for a rookie.
Aybar of the angels will get over 100 R and 60 RBI and 30 SB for 2012
Morales will get over over 100 Rbi for 2012
Gordon of the Royals will get over 100R and 90 RBI and 20 SB for 2012
Cain will get over 90 R and 25 SB and over .285
Hosmer will get over 25 HR and 105 RBI
Butler will get over .305 AVG and 20 HR
Moose will get over .275 and 17 HR
Gordon of the LAD will get over 100R and 40 RBI and 50 SB for 2012
Kemp will get over 33 HR and 105 Rbi for LAD
Ethier will get over 27 HR and 93 RBI
Boesch will get over 24 HR and 75 Rbi for 2012.
C ross will get over 20 HR and 70 RBI
Freese will get over 27 HR and 90 RBI w. a 297 AVG
