    But yes sir, I will take that bet. I have a lot of faith, and if not, I lose a CP to a good poster.
    Its not that I do not like your chances, its that I view you more as a rising team. As I said get another arm and add a bat, (maybe two, depending on Helton's future) and you will have arrived. In a different thread I said if you face AL West team in the World Series you will take it.

      Yeah, our future at 1st base really worries me. I agree we need to add another arm as well.

      I just have really high hopes this season, and think we can make a deep run for it. But there are better teams out there, no doubt, but we are built for the future, which is very exciting.

        My 2011 Predictions:

        NL West: Rockies (IMO, the best all around team in the division)

        NL Central: Reds. The Cardinals will be hurt with Wainwright missing the season and Carpenter has injury problems too. I want to see if Grienke can pitch in a hitters park in Milwaukee before I say anything about them.

        NL East - Phillies. The Braves will definitely compete, but the Phillies rotation is just too good.

        Wild Card - Braves. I expect the Giants to compete, but they did lose a power bat in the offseason (Uribe) and Auriila is old and inconsistent. Hitting helps win in the MLB. (See the Seattle Mariners first before you reply to my comment)

        AL West - Rangers. Wouldn't surprise me to see the Athletics win, but Texas is still a very talented team. Even without Cliff Lee.

        AL Central - White Sox. Wouldn't surprise me if the Twins won, but IMO, the Sox are better overall than the Twins. I'll give the Twins the advantage, hitting wise, but the Sox have a very good lineup too, and IMO, Chicago's pitching rotation is better.

        AL East: Red Sox. Gotta acknowledge what they did in the offseason. They have a very talented team. Would surprise me if they DIDN'T win.

        AL Wild Card: Yankees. They're still a great team, but great pitching rotations win ballgames and World Series Titles. Other than CC, who do they got?

          Agreed. But I think I'd take the Twins > White Sox

            I can live your predictions. If my Sox win a third WS in eight years I do not know what I would do. To think I have been blessed to see it twice, when generations of Sox fans did amazes me. At this point anymore is icing on the cake.

              You are very lucky indeed. And you very well might see a 3rd.

              I hope the Rockies see their first though

                It is a feeling like no other. Heck I am tearing up thinking about it. I hope you know this joy. I also would love to see the Cubbies win it.

                  I've been pretty fortunate so far. Though, I really want to see the Rockies win one more than anything.

                  Even though I was pretty young I've seen 2 Broncos Superbowls, 2 Avalanche Stanley Cups and 2 Duke Basketball National Championships.

                  Very emotional no doubt. Goose bumps galore thinking back on any of them.

                  But just thinking of the last game against AZ to go to the WS in 2007 gives me crazy chills. Very fortunate to be able to attend that game.

                    For me it is

                    x 2 Sox
                    x2 Broncos
                    x2 Avs
                    x1 Celtics
                    x 4 Jeff Gordon
                    x 5 Jimmie Johnson
                    x 2 Al Unser Jr.
                    x 3 Patriots

                    Not to mention any Daytona's or Indy's.

                          My 2011 predictions

                          NL West : San Francisco. Not the most powerful lineup but they have amazing pitching and as we've seen Pitching is what wins

                          NL Central: Cincinnati Reds. I think they are for real they have good pitching and a good line up Votto and Bruce are still young to lead this team for years

                          NL East: Philadelphia Phillies. Best team in the National League hitting fielding and of course pitching i think their only weak spot is their Closer

                          NL Wild Card: Colorado Rockies. I think they will finish a game or two out of first behind San Francisco and will make it to the NLCS against the Giants

                          AL West : Texas Rangers. Good team in a weak division biggest threat ... Oakland

                          AL Central : Minnesota Twins. Good pitching and a decent lineup and anyline up with Joe Mauer is pretty good

                          AL East : Boston Red Sox. anyone shocked here ?

                          AL Wild Card : Oakland Athletics. The Yankees need pitching and they aren't going to get Lariano From Minnestoa and theres really no free agent arms left the Rays suck and the Angels won't catch Oakland or Texas

                          So the Brackets look like

                          San Francisco - 3
                          Cincinnati - 1

                          Colorado - 3
                          Philadelphia - 2

                          Texas - 2
                          Minnesota - 3

                          Oakland - 0
                          Boston - 3

                          San Francisco - 4
                          Colorado -2

                          Minnesota - 2
                          Boston -4

                          San Francisco - 0
                          Boston - 4

                          2011 World Series Champions

                          Boston Red Sox

                            Boston Red Sox
                            San Fran's pretty possible. They'll need to prove losing Uribe won't hurt their lineup and Aubery Huff needs to be more consistant. Who else is there in their lineup other than Buster Posey? I like how you have us beating the Phillies tho :thumb:

                            I doubt the Sox sweep the Giants, but they should win easily. I say Sox in 5 if that happens
