Last week I made predictions for 4 Rangers players. After that article I received two comments asking for more. So with the players I have been given I make my predictions. By the way Brendan you said it dosnt have to be GOOD. Just what I think and the method speaks!
Red Sox. 1-161. 5th place finish.
Jacoby Ellsbury. First about this guy he is only number 2 because he wanted to be as good as future Hall of Famer Derek Jeter. Just wanted to clear that up. He most likely took steroids to get his success last season realizing he hit less than 200 in 2010. I think that the PED’s will work against him next year and he will put up something like this. 179 AVG, 4 HR and 25 RBI’s. Never will he put up a season like his last
Dustin Pedroia. Injured out for season first day of spring training.
Josh Beckett. One word. Terrible. This guy is going down. I mean he cant even beat the Yankees any more he used to dominate them! Okay here is what I say. 1-12 record, 6.85 ERA, 88 K’s. That’s all
Here is the real one.
89-83 3rd place finish.
Jacoby Ellsbury.No way he does what he did last year. That was a career year. He is still a great player but he will never repeat. 296 AVG, 15 HR’s, 69RBI’s.
Dustin Pedroia. This guy is a great talent even if he wears the most ugly uniform in baseball. He was league MVP in 2008 a year after A-Rods MVP season which you should see the numbers of. Just wanted to let you know. Any way Pedroia won the gold glove award last season something I can honestly say he did not deserve. Either way he should be great in 2012. 298 AVG, 8HR’s, 63 RBI’s.
Josh Beckett. I with out question hate this guy mostly for what he did in 2003. He is a good pitcher and I suspect him to do well. 3.18 ERA, 16 W, 201 K’s
I hope you are satisfied with it Brendan.

As of Wednesday, Jose Reyes is apparently cutting his hair, after finding out that the Marlins have a rule allowing no long hair. The broadcast is airing at 6 pm on MLB Network’s Hot Stove. Following the airing, they will play last year’s “Alex Rodriguez clips his Toenails”. If you have DVR, set it to record, because it will be a broadcast to remember.
The Yankees finished with a 97-65 record in 2011 and hope to improve in 2012.With ace pither C.C Sabathia returning and rising stars such as Ivan Nova and Jesus Montero they might just do that.With a rotation that will include Sabathia,Nova,Phil Hughes,Freddy Garcia and A.J Burnett and also a lineup that will incude stars such as Robinson Cano, Derek Jeter,Alex Rodriguez,Mark Teixeira and Curtis Granderson, the Yankees hope this team will lead them to their their 28th world series title in 2012.
