Prediction Time–

First Game

CF DeJesus

2B Grud

RF Teahen

DH Sweeney

3B Gordon

LF Brown

1B Shealy

C Buck

SS Berroa

SP 1–Meche





Last game of the year

1–Gload will be starting every day for either Brown or Shealy. I am betting that one will go into a dismal slump and how can you not play a guy who hits 300?

2–LaRue for Buck. Buck got better defensively, but worse offensively.

3–Gonzalez/German for Berroa. There is a huge difference between a BA of 230 and 260. All I want from C and SS is solid defense and an offence that does not hurt the club.

Greinke will begin as the number 5 starter and end up as the number 3 guy. If the injury bug hits then number 2.

SP 1–Meche





Gobble and Wellemeyer will get some starts. Elarton will be around 5.50-6.00 ERA. That was OK last year, but not this one. If he ever strings together a few good starts we might trade him.

Royals will play around 500 ball and end up maybe 5-10 games under. Tough division this year.

Hope springs eternal.
