    3. Oakland's Gio Gonzalez finishes top five in Cy Young.
    Number one doesn't sound like anything I'd ever say. At best, I was a year early, but I think what really happened was that Anthony Wiener hacked my account.

    I was close with #2, but then the expected collapse came and the Pirates ended up looking worse than ever, almost. McCutcheon's still one of my favorite non-Reds.

    Gio might have made it if he hadn't had a recent bad spell. He was playing with the AL ERA lead for a while, I think, but has pitched poorly lately.

    At least I missed in different ways than most. 'course on Twitter I picked Bruce and Dunn as MVP's.

    Joey Votto will suffer from lineup construction and go 287/347/507.

    The Braves will battle the Phillies down to the wire and might beat'em.
    The Boston Red Sox will win the most regular season games in 2011.
    Adam Dunn will hit at least 35 HRs.
