20 Mostly Ridiculous Predictions For The 2012 MLB Season

Last February I put together a list of Mostly Ridiculous Predictions for the Major League Baseball season when I was working at fanshots.com.

It was fun to put together and while we’re a month later this year, I’m gonna do it again!

  1. Bud Selig will say or do something so ridiculous that even the owners will wonder why he’s still the commissioner.
  2. There will be 4 no-hitters thrown (3 in the NL and 1 in the AL) during the season.
  3. Vegetarian (and extremely large dude) Prince Fielder will choke on a piece of raw broccoli and miss 4-7 games.
  4. There will be no 50 home run hitters in the big leagues.
  5. Baltimore will finish last in the AL East.
  6. Brian Wilson will shave his beard. I don’t know why, but he will.
  7. Stephen Strasburg will win 14 games and strike out 225+ hitters.
  8. 1 of the #2 Wild Card teams will get to the World Series.
  9. The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim will miss the playoffs.
  10. David Ortiz will not hit 30 home runs.
  11. The Toronto Blue Jays will finish the season with an 87 win and 75 loss season and miss the second Wild Card spot by 3 games.
  12. This Week in Baseball will remain one of my favourite TV shows of all-time. But it will still not be as good as it was when I was a kid.
  13. Brett Lawrie will be voted into the All-Star Game (campaign starts now Blue Jays fans).
  14. Derek Jeter will continue to slide.
  15. I will get to at least 10 games in person during the season.
  16. Someone will have a 3 home run game on Pink Bat/ Mothers Day.
  17. The Pirates will win 82 games.
  18. Ozzie Guillen will have at least one racially changed blow-up in Miami.
  19. AJ Burnett won’t be happy when he gets the bunt sign.
  20. I’m going to keep loving the game of baseball!

It’s going to be a fun season kids. Get your stuff ready!
