Saturday Morning Musings...

Good time of year right now. Weather is cooling down, football is in full swing, and NBA is beginning pre-season games...

Lets take a quick look back at the RSM baseball predictions. For those that don't want to click, here were the picks:

NL East - Philly
NL Central - Cubs
NL West - D-Backs
Wild Card - Braves

AL East - Boston
AL Central - Tigers
AL West - Angels
WIld Card - Rays

NL MVP - H. Ramirez
AL MVP - M. Cabrera

NL CY Young - Lincecum
AL CY Young - Halladay

NL ROY - C. Maybin
AL ROY - E. Andrus

NLCS - D-Backs over Cubs
ALCS - Angels over Red Sox

WS - Angels over D-Backs

Reader Mike did much better with his...

It looks like Mike will only miss the NL Wild Card, but who could blame him picking the local squad. I missed the AL & NL Wild Card as well as the NL Central. Obviously, I was way off on the D-Backs. They ran into a series of issues with the Brandon Webb injury, the Chris Young debacle, and a rash of other injuries. But, kudos again to Mike - well done.

As for the awards, there weren't too many poor choices, but if I had a vote for the real award now, here is how I would vote...

NL MVP - Pujols
AL MVP - Mauer

NL Cy Young - Wainwright
AL Cy Young - Greinke

AL ROY - Beckham
NL ROY - Hanson

Early guess at the Hawks roster:

Bibby, Crawford, Teague, Johnson, West, Smith, Williams, Evans, Horford, Pachulia, Collins, Hunter
