    Of them all, I'd say Altuve is the "real deal". He doesn't have much power, but his hit tool is completely legit. Not .375-.400 legit, but compete for a batting title legit...yep.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    This lineup is the type that would get no-hit in their first playoff game against any of the aces, of the elite teams.

    There's 3 good experienced hitters in this lineup, and one of them is struggling right now (BP).

    They'll score runs, but that hasn't won them any playoff games or even the division lately, and the pitching is and should be better this year than it has in the last 10 years or more.

    Never seen a team sit on a base lineup for so long and ignore the glaring need for a slugger between Votto/Bruce, at least.

    The offense will be better today. Seems like Latos gets decent run support
