Harden's numbers seem a bit low to me.

I've learned not to pay any attention to pre-season predictions. Who really thought the Marlins were gonna win the 2003 World Series for the 2nd time in their 10 year existence?

I was reading an old issue of Lindy's: They predicted that the AZ D-Backs will finish first in the NL West, and yet they lost 111 games - never believe the experts.

dbacks will be vastly improved and are in a weak division. might not be a bad pick.

I agree on AZ; they could provide some real headaches for the rest of that division. If both Glaus and Green put up big numbers they are capable of and Ortiz and Vasquez do the job, they certainly have to be considered dark horses to win it. Also, Gonzalez appears to be healthy again. Dodgers, Giants, Backs all seem to have a chance in a division which could prove to have the tightest race.

Trust me, Russ Ortiz won't do the job and Shawn Green looks washed up. Glaus might actually be able to justify his contract if he manages to stay healthy. With the Rockies in full rebuilding mode they'll probably climb out of the cellar this year and maybe they can finish past the Giants if Bonds misses significant time. To lose 111 games and become a divsion title contender the next year is virtually impossible. The division is a toss up between the Dodgers and Paders with Giants thrown in the mix if Bonds is bullshitting everyone, which he may very well be doing.

I don't know about that yc. Keep in mind that Brandon Webb had the worst tough luck of any pitcher in the bigs. Webb, Ortiz, and Vasquez. Plus you've got green, glaus, gonzalez. Their bulle is a huge issue. Don't think they'll win the division (think it will be the gnats, sadly). I just think they'll be ok.

Yeh, I think their bullpen is their achilles' heel.
