Thank's for the response Clutch.I'm sure you noticed I was being a bit whimsical on this.You're probably right about the NL East,however,they'll be beating up on each other;as will the 2 AL Central contenders.This will go on pretty much in all divisions outside of the AL West.Brew Crew is deep in the mix.They've got vs.Chi. & 3 @the friendly confines; or not so friendly depending on perspective,who's pitching,who's batting,who's sitting in Bartman's old seat,etc... You get the picture.Great choice on Ludwick! I've always believed where a candidate's team finishes shouldn't be the end of discussion when it comes to post-season awards.It's a factor,no doubt,but not the determining one.Seriously,it can be debated 'til the Super Bowl about who get's the AL Cy Young; K-Rod,who I'd pick,or Cliff Lee 17-2 w/ a lowwww ERA.I seriously picked the Marlins because of Gregg,though the Phils have Lidge,the Mets are hitting right now with 2 IFers playing the corner OF positions; but Wagner better slam some doors whenever he gets back.Can't win a short series without 2or3 real good SPs & a world beater who can slam the door in the 9th.   Talk to you soon Clutch. God Bless!

Nice blog...Don't agree with some of your picks though...Who ever wins the NL East...The two that don't neither will win the wildcard...The Brew Crew will...Utley won't win the NL MVP...Ludwick will...And i don't think the Marlins will make it to the NLCS...Although good blog..

Take your time commenting on my blogs;I mean I'm not an ALL-STAR 4 nada(that's newyorkese for "nothing") I personally don't plan on leaping from the ledge of my therapist's 15th story office 'til the Yankees r mathematically eliminated;or when Darren McFadden blows out his knee &/or Jamarcus Russell a)breaks his collar bone(is that 1 word or 2) b)ruptures his Achilles or c)dislocates his right shoulder.Point being,you have time.
