Don’t freak out, all the closers are finding a groove, even Mariano blew a save. Valverde is till good, Perez can hold his job and Putz will be more dominant
On that note, Justin Verlander should close out his own games for the Tigers, Valverde should close for all the other starters. Verlander has proven he can do it and he could throw 150 in a game, as long as it’s only once in a while
Austin Jackson should have a breakout year and he could have the best of anybody in the MLB, his new stance seems pretty legit for getting his average up and he will K still, but reducing his K’s by 30-35 is possible
I still believe in the Marlins and that they have a great chance at the playoffs but if anyone could disappoint big it’s the Marlins, small chance they’re like the 2008 Tigers but I doubt it
Melky Cabrera’s 2011 may have not been a fluke
This could be Chad Billingsley’s year to become a great number two
Verlander is really as good as 2011 suggests and Halladay has to be the favorite for a CY Young this year
Johan Santana is ready to comeback strong
Both Vernon Wells and Adam Dunn will improve easily on his 2011
I wouldn’t be too concerned with Yovani Gallardo yet
Yuniesky Bentancourt season is a complete fluke, he will still be bad.
RA Dickey won't keep a sub-3.00 ERA for long.
Dayan Vicedo hit his first home run tonight and he should hit some on and off from now and then go on a homer streak. Power will be his speciality for now.
Miguel Cabrera homers will pick up quick.
Justin Smoak got his first hit today, a double, this should be the start for him a he should catch on fire, hitting homers and doubles and getting RBIs and he will always get base hits at any time.
Miguel Cabrera has hit 12 RBIs through 8 games on the current road trip(SEA, LAA, TEX). He should do something to that extent a lot this year and should do very well on the road.
Jorge De La Rosa is a good fit for the Rockies.
