And now for the real expert's predictions: mine

You have until 6:05pm Monday evening to post your predictions in the Comments section of this page for them to be valid. Winner at the end of the season gets a prize - a good one. How about an engraved baseball bat from Cooperstown, New York saying the following:

(Your Name) is the smartest man (or woman) alive. Astros County, 2009.

Now for my predictions, and please note the wins probably won't add up.

NL Central:
Cubs: 92-70
Reds: 87-75
Cardinals: 84-78
Astros: 81-81
Brewers: 79-83
Pirates: 60-102

NL East: Mets
NL West: Dodgers
NL Wild Card: Giants

AL East: Red Sox
AL Central: Indians
AL West: Angels
AL Wild Card: Rays

WS: Red Sox def Cubs in seven games - the best WS since 2001, and Astros County rejoices.

If the Astros are going to have major award winners, it'll be these players:
MVP: Lance Berkman
Cy Young: Roy Oswalt
Comeback Player of the Year: Mike Hampton
