I really like Milwaukee. I was tempted to put them ahead of the Cards but I decided to go with the safer pick. The Brewers made some solid offseason moves with the acquisitions of David Bush and Corey Koskie. The Cards lost Reggie Sanders, Matt Morris, and Al Reyes...and their outfield is horrible. Edmonds is still good but is getting older. Rolen is coming off shoulder surgery and we know how Kearns and Casey did after the same type of surgery. It could be an interesting race in the Central.

Edited-Forgot about the divisional rule.

IMO, very few teams can go from being average to the playoffs in one season. That's espeecially true when you're talking about adding rookies who weren't even on the team last season.

So I think you have the Brewers a little high. Saying they'll challenge St. Louis is very,very optimistic. I'm giving them another year before they start contending for a playoff spot.

I'll go:

on base machine, Boston and New York wouldnt be able to play until the ALCS. Divisional teams cant play eachother in divisional play.
