THE OFFICIAL MLB SEASON 2013 THERRAD

Justin Verlander just signed a record breaking extension that could reach over $200 million and will keep him in Detroit through 2019. nietzsche, that means he won't be going to Boston, sorry Mr. Mexico.

Tigers are my pick to win the World Series this year. DISCUSS.

Way overpaid for a player who only plays in 1/5 of the games.

Cardinals over Reds in 7 in NLCS

Cardinals over Angels in 6 in WS (NL homefield).

Gotta go with the Jays. Been a long time since I was excited about any MLB season. This year us Jays fans have something to be excited about. Good on paper...hoping it translates to some wins and a playoff berth this year.

Got Houston winning 100 games at 10 000:1. With odds like that, I can't lose.

Srsly though: jays at 35:1, now I am seeing them at 7:1 and 8:1. W00t.

I don't see how this makes sense. Think about it this way, Verlander faced 956 batters last year. The league leader in plate appearances last year was Jeter with 740. Verlander factored into more than 200 more PAs then the highest batter. Pitchers may play in only 1/5 of the games, but they still play more.

As for predictions I must also go with my O-R-I-O-L-E-S!

Now add in the number of players they put out on defense.

I wouldn't pick the Jays just based on their experience. Even as a Sox fan, if I had to pick a team to win it all that wasn't the Saux (you know, because I would pick them otherwise), I would pick the Tigers. They've been there, done that, have last year's triple crown winner, arguably the best pitcher in baseball and a veteran manager.

Well considering that the Jays have a very much revamped lineup, I'd pick them to get the first wild card or the second wild card slot. That is all!
