Welcome back to foxsports.com. MLB season preview to what eleven we have talked about every division. Every team now it is prognostication. Tied heading out the hard work that wasn't gonna give you award you guys tell me who's going to win it lets you quickly. Starting -- National League rookie of the. Well -- had a couple in my a couple of Braves I had camera until about -- sure Brandon belt going to be on the -- -- -- -- on the club with the Giants I don't think you ever looks back -- -- stays in -- against lefties he's a phenomenal defensive player. We talked about him a little bit are tolerated earlier. I I just think he's going to be a difference between the Jets if they're going to be forced to keep them on the big. League roster -- -- you have ticket Brando as a rookie of the year over rolled his -- and I think we'll end up being the closer for the reds but I loved belt offensively I think he's gonna hit. 20/20 five homers drive in ninety runs and -- the Giants win the division by unanimous it's -- five category production and we knew reverses as the maintenance. All American League rookie of the year America would have a regular somebody that I got to see a lot of very talked about a mother Jeremy -- and and they did have some start but -- -- -- -- in the big -- -- still and rookie category to look at his numbers right there for no three and a half basically earned run average. Again I think it's the demeanor and -- -- -- -- to start the rotation at least sort of the back -- in a matchup pretty well in time this -- To be your Frontline starter differently yeah I think -- -- -- -- -- -- it take ratio got a second baseman of the Minnesota Twins though -- -- a lot in spring training really impressed with his hands his reads off. Of the bat I love it turns a double play not a great -- -- really knows that if and he's fitting in well I watched -- -- Josh Johnson. The fastball and I watched him away taken at the other way I think he's going to be the rookie here and be a key factor the Minnesota Twins. Too intelligent with a slight edge over Michael and yeah okay so far consensus building. Sent -- about National League Cy Young -- I'm either gets back to Roy Halladay and he gets back to back -- the best pitcher in the National League just pitcher you're kind of talk about stuff but his demeanor. When they go in when to go out 'cause it's like this what he wants to get up to 95 you can do that I go right. -- -- Tom Beckett Tim Lincecum that'll be his third cy young and glory years Tim Lincecum. The best young pitcher in the game he misses bats this is a great lineup behind them. I think he's got to win twenty games for the first time in his career I'll take -- Lincecum and. He's 3100 calorie meals and an out and I don't not -- Florida Josh Johnson. Yeah I was going you Felix Hernandez side of things -- don't -- it's not a game to look at all the peripherals and strikeout numbers won't -- like. Great pitcher's park get a little more support from the offense and defense that knowledge of the double bubble let's move the American League Cy Young Kevin. I believe he won't be right go right back to Felix but I don't think the topic is going to be that much better now but -- the same record the writers are gonna vote for me again they may. But I think this time it goes through Boston I think it goes to Jon Lester that it's his time this guy is a phenomenal pitcher. Again I thought about mound presence mound demeanor he has that. This guy has big guts on the mound this guys out there to fight just they'll find a way to do it they'll cut it did on his pitches that I studied five -- -- two -- he's got a changeup. He takes a -- up to the beach and is gonna have a support offensively to do and the bullpen to help them do that. -- -- it Jon Lester as well I love the stuff just to nasty he's got a great club behind -- lot of run support great defense. I think just in -- there's going to be -- Ryan he's got a big year price and sabathia always are and on how I go against king -- but you know what. I just think it's Leicester here. Gotta go blaster type it is sets up a unanimous. Like when -- -- or National League manager well give credit to all artists they've pretty Gonzales who has first or the Braves I think they're gonna have a big year but I'm gonna go to Bruce -- you know I think it's his time you know what he showed a post season is gonna continue that. The Giants are gonna have a winning ballclub again they're probably gonna win the west. I think Bruce -- she gets. I will be a big boats economic think -- Izod and -- going to be there going well here at at a rookie manager winning manager of the year I'm taken Freddie allowable. What erratically in Milwaukee look at for them to make some noise like as well as in you got a rotation coming into itself predict provided that Greinke is only. A late April return and the and the offense motivate with prince fielder's -- you sound logic all American League. -- -- best manager for me in baseball all things considered running a game demeanor handling this that this staff paneling delegate authority. Telling his players great sense of humor to people probably don't know -- a national scale Mike social for me the Angels. And I think it -- such as well be witty script this -- didn't and you know -- narrow shoulder hurting you Kazmir in the fist fight you know are we getting I don't know what he's gonna do it closer. What did it with third baseman this terrorists are kiosk a lot of things have to go right before ever reason I think -- gonna win the division and that they do it -- B Mike Sosa's best. Job I'm thinking might understand the -- -- bobbed hair up in oak -- got out rotation coming it is so he's gonna have to mix and match parts does is going to be missed time. But some of those veterans and with regard to injury when you look at Matsui Willingham and stuff but I believe they'll have enough to get it done and Al MVP. Well is he won internationally for me I picked him every year is Albert fools I think he's gonna have a monster year the reason I'm not gonna go for those only because -- of these different this year that felt real I think it's going to be bitch about it go to a catcher to get a catcher somewhat -- that's going to be. It's up in the Bay Area it's Buster Posey. You know I wanna rookie of the year last year you can -- -- can do it doesn't -- did what the Red Sox rookie of the year MVP. I he always gonna hit forty plus home runs in a drive in runs the responsibility in the batting order one thing. But I like what he's done defensively and so that is gone unnoticed what you do that the big leagues have for young guy handling the pitching staff the way he did when we heard the knock on him once. He's not rated catch Tim Lincecum this guy can catch he can throw. You know that's my area. I think he gets -- I hope the writers give him some credit for what he does defensively might. By the defense that. We left -- I'll let you know it just doesn't translate if I went over -- yeah. Obligatory genre but -- -- you know about a minute and anybody -- who couldn't. I've got Albert polls when he MVP is a no brainer for me you know just watching him in spring entering this -- on absolute mission. It's free agent here is not gonna be a distraction whatsoever the cardinal supporting him. Except for the media when he's on the road the fans but the reality is I never seen it work part of his elbows finally healthy. He's not worried about I've never seen a guy work harder in my entire career. This guy grinds it out early in the day soft tosses before the game he swing and I think it's fifty overs for the first time in his career he's the MVP it's hard to. To go against a number -- was must have surgery in that one out won the MVP a couple of years ago. But I'm -- stay with Milwaukee the Milwaukee they probably don't Prince Fielder in the walked here. Come up big was tougher to pick him -- wrong because of the bronze and gets considerably quicker return for him and the other question here is how many what's the over under on games played for Rickie Weeks he's the linchpin of this whole thing he stays healthy they score runs they win related Rickie Weeks is the guy to watch finally American League MV. I'm gonna go with it could go to -- Gonzales urban go to burba -- north -- canal you know Robby is in the top three you know last year and I think he's a tremendous about this they run -- somebody on base more. Because they rod does look good I gotta say. But rod is getting hit fifth again but this -- has really come into his on his swing is short so short come back. Seen him eighteen times in person last year. That's a guy you didn't wanna face side note to cherish grade neighborhoods grade probably will be again this year but that's a -- people bit more face that she stays in their against lefties. One of those sweetest swings in baseball right now. I think Alex Rodriguez is this team is going to be the MVP I think he's gonna bounce back I think what we saw this spring was real. I think he's gonna have forty home runs this year for the first time and a long time he looks great they hit -- working better than have -- take an era. Fantasy -- loved him for years Tampa. -- -- -- down Tampa I'll go with Carl Crawford don't mean to Boston but he's potentially get lost there aren't you talk about Boston -- about new York and you get a what you guys are people gonna have to consider which is why aren't exactly how much like to Cabrera. Just to be different but understand Boston and we -- -- because I like the love for Carl and I like that.
