If claiming that the Yankees will finish last in their division and the Royals will be a playoff team wasn't bold enough, heare are 5 bold predictions for an unlucky year.
5. The Toronto Blue Jays will test positive for PEDs and be suspended for 50 games. Yes, even R.A. Dickey will be indicted. 
4. The Cleveland Indians will trade Ubaldo Jimenez to the Colorado Rockies for Dexter Fowler, as the Rockies try to mashup the Blake Street Bombers with the 2007 National League champions.
3. The Colorado Rockies will pinch hit Dante Bichette in the bottom of the ninth with cheap tacos on the line. Dante will blast a home run, clinching tacos to the crowds applause. The Rockies will then lose 14-11 to no ones dismay.
2. Ryan Braun will be suspended 50 games after a positive test for PEDs, yet again for the first time. 
1. Bud Selig will announce his retirement, yet again, stating that he will be hanging them up after the 2014 season, and that he plans to leave Mark Attanasio in charge.
And if I'm as far off as I was last year, that means the Dodgers will end up defeating the Angels in the World Series.


  1. I don't have any problems with your predictions as long as I get CHEAP TACOS.

  2. I like your picks for NL West champs and NL MVP!
