Chien-Ming Wang Born

This is something I wanted to do last year but never got around to, partially because of my travels, partially out of forgetfulness; to wit, predictions for the upcoming season. Today seems a good day, both for its closeness to the beginning of the season, and its birthday boy, since if my predictions are going to come true, that man will have up his strikeout rate and pitch well all year. Without further ado, here goes:

AL East:
(1) Yankees
(2) Red Sox (Wild Card)
(3) Blue Jays

(2) Padres
(3) Giants {I don't like Barry's chances of staying healthy}
