With today being baseball's official opening day, I thought it would be a good opportunity to discuss some predictions of the '09 season. Immortalize your prediction...here are a couple of mine:


-Yankees win the World Series


-Manny Ramirez admits to steroid use


-Alex Rodriguez, keeping his tradition with chasing Social Security eligible women, begins dating Ruth Madoff


 
What have you got?

- CC Sabathia gets injured because he threw way too much last year

Cubs loose they're entire bench in a terrible bus crash.  Billy Bob Thorton steps in to assemble a crackpot mix of youngsters with heart.  Through sheer will and determination, they go on to break the curse and grasp the first world series in over 100 years.
