@MLB NL West Preview

Because of my stellar NFL picks, I know that many of you are dying to hear my 2013 MLB predictions. Wait no longer. For the next couple of weeks I will roll out my predictions for the 2013 season. I will begin with the most boring division (the NL West) and end with the only one that really matters (the AL Central).

Final Standings

  1. LA Dodgers
  2. San Diego Padres
  3. San Francisco Giants
  4. Arizona Diamondbacks
  5. Colorado Rockies

Not enough pitching for the Rockies. The NL West always has a team that shouldn’t be a contender that ends up making a push for the division. It could be the Diamondbacks but I am going to go with the Padres. The Dodgers are stacked—barring injury they could win 100 games. I see the Giants going backwards.

So Crazy It Just Might Work:

  • 30/100/.280 for Cody Ross
  • 15 wins for Wade Miley
  • Rockies score 800 runs…but give up 1000
  • Tulo threatens 50 homers
  • The Dodgers have the type of team that could woefully under perform—I think their batting doesn’t do as projected but their pitching gives them 90 plus wins.
  • 40 SB’s and a .275 BA for Cameron Maybin
  • Clayton Richard wins 18 games
  • Lincecum bounces back but Cain falters

Rookies to Watch: Tyler Skaggs (SP, Arizona) and Adam Eaton (OF, Arizona)
Most Likely to Break a Bone: Todd Helton…dude’s like 50
Fantasy Stud: Troy Tulowitzki
Fantasy Dud: Adrian Gonzalez
