I'd go something like:

1. Young, Jr.
2. Murph
3. Wright
4. Grandy
5. Ike
6. Chris Young
7. d'Arnaud
8. Tejeda
9. Pitcher

1. Colon
2. Niese
3. Wheeler
4. Gee
5. Mejia/Dice-K/Lannan

#5 will be Noah's spot eventually, probably after ASB.

Man, you're begging for 500 strikeouts with Grandy and Ike back to back laugh.gif

These teams just tossing kids into rotations and wondering where they went wrong need to take hard look at St. Louis. You build them better by going bullpen > 5 inning starts > full time starter.

Yes, sir. Love the STL way. Most teams don't have the luxury of Yadi framing pitches and developing young arms.

I actually think Ike is going to rake. He had monster 2010 and 2012 seasons, I believe off the top. Trade talks to Milwaukee and Tampa will motivate him.

Duda's buns.

Mets are going to be trash again even worst than 2013 with Harvey out for a full year. Your lineup 4-9 is going to K a ton. Ike Davis is done nothing is going to motivate him. D'Arnaud was a disappointment and Tejada can't hit. Mets fans been saying in 2009 they're going to be better in 3-4 years so its finally past those 3-4 years still not ready.

I actually believe the Marlins will improve with another full year of Jose Fernandez. I hope the Braves can trade Kimbrel for Jose Fernandez just wishful thinking because Braves aren't going to spend upwards of 10-16 million dollars for a closer in Kimbrel no matter how great he is. that makes me sad hes going to be a Yankee when he becomes a free agent. They will try to trade him for an ace before the trade deadline.

Dan Uggla and BJ Upton are trash they're not going to improve. 1 year of wathing BJ and i can already tell hes garbage.

My projection is obviously very optimistic. I have no ties to the Mets, just posting what I see.

You hope Young can channel his Arizona days. Hit 20 homers and swipe close to 20 bags in essentially a contract year.

Bro, Ike mashed in two seasons for NYM. 2010 and 2012. 32 home runs in the latter year. He'll find his swing.

Tejada hit over .280 his previous two seasons to 2013. Still a player for Drew.

Look, I'm not saying Mets are going to win the division. But watch Wheeler grasp his control/command. Noah coming through the pipeline. This team is going to be a .500 ball club with 80-81 wins. That's a step in the right direction with Terry as a gatekeeper.

KC paid Vargas. And Ventura is the future.

I'll admit this prediction is partially for shock factor. Do I believe it fully? No, not 100%.

Royals
Tigers
Indians
White Sox
Twins

Aoki's addition is huge, underrated. Moves Gordon down the order. Hosmer will be a unheralded MVP candidate. Moustakas will find his stroke. Added Infante and Vargas. Perez one of the better young catchers. Butler still a veteran bat presence. Shields leading your line. Holland was the best closer in the AL in 2013. I admit the RF corner spot leaves a bit to be desired, one area of weakness.

I like the makeup of KC. They'll probably finish second at best. But I'll stick with my bold prediction.

Deal. Beer bet basically.

I realistically have KC finishing second.

Man my first year of college I walked on and red shirted. Even if i wasn't playing but practicing pretty much every day and then I played in the MINK league and practically playing every day and throwing every other day I was so damn tired when I came home that summer. I couldn't even imagine playing 162 and playoffs that's one hell of a grind but these dudes are getting paid millions for it so it definitely can't be that bad.

I get that Hamels won't be ready for Opening Day, but overpaying Burnett for likely only 10-12 wins... not a good look.
