Predictions from MVB

It's finally here, the moment we all (or I) have been waiting for. The day when every team (well except for the Atlanta Braves b/c of last night) is in first place! It's Opening Day across America today which means the start of the Major League Baseball season.

I am heading to the game tonight in Minneapolis to see the Twins take the field and watch Hunter stroll out to centerfield, but wearing a different cap. I'm curious to see if there will be more cheers or boos for Hunter, I'm guessing cheers. Expect a Opening Day post later this week recapping the entire event.

In honor of Opening Day, the Twins MVB will be making his 1st annual Season Predictions. The division winners are in bold. Here goes...

NL East: New York Mets, Philadelphia Phillies, Atlanta Braves, Washington Nationals, Florida Marlins

I pretty much agree John, but I think the Rockies will be back in the NL west and the I am going with the Tigers in our central division. You saw a great victory tonite hope you had a good time. Carlos Gomez is pretty cool..and fast. Dad
