SOON TO BE RAINBEARD.
SEE YOU THEN…
Well friends, the Sacramento Kings are in Sacramento to stay. We at NWK are genuinely happy for their fans, who like any, don’t deserve to lose a team. We also wish them luck on their impending bankruptcy thanks to their hero David Stern. Chris Hansen and Steve Ballmer have put up a valiant fight and we thank them for that. We have seen how gross it can be to watch sausage be made, it’s never pretty. Now we wait to see if another city is driven towards hatred over our relentless pursuit or if we will further saturate the League by forcing expansion. Either way, we personally don’t care, we just want our Sonics. It is not over… and we will press on.

Well, after months of broken computers and bachelorette parties getting in our way, we have finally podcasted the hell out of our friends at…
To listen to listen to myself and Casey blather on about life, love, liquor and more libations… click HERE
Los Angeles Angels - (of Anaheim, but formerly California and soon to be Los Alamedos, then eventually Hollywood.) Ugh. Eff off Angels.
Texas Rangers*- Reason for the alienation of Texas great Nolan Ryan? His replacement:
Oakland Athletics- Sorry A’s fans, but your owners will find some way to put it in your butt.
Seattle Mariners- I believe. I believe this Mariners team will be fun to watch. That’s about it, but I will ABSOLUTELY take that.
Houston Astros- Thanks for the wins Houston! Sincerely, the AL West.
Detroit Tigers- The Tigers will ride their highly paid, elite, once in a generation arm all the way to a division title: Doug Fister.
Cleveland Indians- We at NWK are always sympathetic towards the city of Cleveland, it’s the least we can do for them.
Kansas City Royals- Talented hitters, talented pitchers… but same old Royals. Enjoy that first half.
Chicago White Sox- Paul Konerko is 72 years old and is still the last person the Mariners like to face every year.
Minnesota Twins- Oh gahsh Minnesoohhtah! Going to be a long year for ya.
Tampa Bay Rays- The Rays with a last minute run to win division over an All-Star team? Never seen that before.
Toronto Blue Jays*- We will NOT allow for Brandon Morrow win a division before the Mariners do!
Boston Red Sox- Never bet against a scrapper Sox team. Don’t bet FOR them either… but don’t bet against them.
Baltimore Orioles- We will NOT allow Adam Jones to win a division before the Mariners do! … What? He- really?? …Shit.
New York Yankees- Cue the Tony Toni Tone… “It feels goooood. Yeaaah…”
Los Angelos Dodgers- Like the Angels, would love for them to fall on their face… but hard to trump the hardware on this roster.
San Fransisco Giants- With Lincecum’s locks and Wilson’s beard, goes the Giants’ playoff hopes. Just make sure Kung Fu Panda doesn’t shave his Johnson Boys or you’ll be in real trouble.
Arizona Diamondbacks- Yes, us Mariners fans are still bitter that they won the World Series in 2001, with Randy Johnson.
San Diego Padres- Like Frodo and Gollum, Mariners fans have to believe there is hope for the Padres. We just have to.
Colorado Rockies- So sorry Troy and CarGo. Well, since it’s legal, might as well just get a good rocky mountain high gentlmen.
St. Louis Cardinals- The Cardinals just win divisions. It’s a skill.
Cincinnati Reds*- The Big Red La Machina. Division?? We don’t need no stinkin’ division!!
Milwaukee Brewers- The window may be closed, but at least the Brew Crew still live in Milwa- uh… oh man. Sorry.
Pittsburgh Pirates- I love me some McCutchen, but this band of overachievers just won’t be the same without their stud Erik Bedard. (Snickers).
Chicago Cubs- For a moment, thought about making them a mild surprise pick. Only mild. And only for a moment.
Washington Nationals- This team is good. Gabby Hayes good. (Yes, we will keep using that joke until someone gets it.)
Atlanta Braves*- Taking bets on the homerun/strikeout lines for this team ladies and gentlemen.
Philadelphia Phillies- The NL Yankees. Old, injured and overrated. Only the Yankees dont have Doc and Lee. Yeah those two are still pretty damn good.
New York Mets- “Fuck.” -David Wright.
Miami Marlins- “Joder.” -Giancarlo Stanton.
AL ROY- Brandon Maurer (Mariners). Look, I picked Jesus Montero last year, I need redemption. Don’t blow this!
NL ROY- Travis D’Arnaud (Mets). Big market, and a lot of opportunity to be difference maker on a shit team.
AL MOY- Joe Madden (Rays). Boring, but if they win the division… c’mon.
NL MOY- Mike Matheny- Beating out a better Reds team for the division should do the trick.
AL CY- Justin Verlander- Felix will get a lot more help this year, but not enough in the wins column.
NL CY- Matt Cain. Let’s just say, Cain is… Abel! Ha… Ha… (BOOOOO!!!!)
AL MVP- Evan Longoria. Finally a season line that properly depicts his ability. Besides, the Rays will need it to back up my predictions.
NL MVP- Joey Votto. Not the sexiest pick, but the man is consistant. Besides, Bryce Harpor will NOT win it, people.
Tampa Bay Rays over Los Angeles Angels
Cincinnati Reds over Washington Nationals
Cincinnati Reds over Tampa Bay Rays
Enjoy the season compadres!
