What are your bold predictions for the stretch drive?

Mine go as:

Pirates deal for J. Upton and one of Grienke or Hamels to get into the playoffs.

Strasburg gets shut down but Nationals still make playoffs.

Tigers win the central by at least 5 after V-mart comes off the DL and provides production out of that 5-hole and a trade for Garza.

The Pirates are not getting Upton AND one of Greinke or Hamels. That's too much of a bold prediction, but it would be some deadline if it happened.

The Garza part was bold. ;)

I can see the Pirates getting Upton.

But not Greinke or Hamels too.

I have been saying Dempster to the Dodgers so long that I am just going to keep saying it.

Cards get Vargas. Not that I want him, just something I think will happen.

Berkman will be terrible in the second half. And that will suck.

Tim Lincecum bounces back to the point where we approaches 10 wins and he lowers his ERA into the low 4's range. Thats pretty bold.

For Vargas?

Maybe Zach Cox.

It wouldn't be much, Vargas probably isn't the most sought after guy to add to a rotation.

I can just see the Cards going for Vargas.


For Dempster?

I could see a pitching spec and an offensive spec. One better than the other. I don't have anyone in mind though.

Strasburg isn't going to get shut down if the Nats have a chance to make the playoffs.

I think they said the other day that they were sticking to their word IIRC.

Pirates get Upton and a serviceable starter and win the division plus the first round of the playoffs. The Red Sox finish last in the AL East. The AL West turns into a real pennant race. The Dodgers land Hamels, plucking him away from a nearly set deal with Texas and go on to win the NL pennant.

I could see all of that happening

He said bold prediction, not pipe dreams. :p

I guess if the Jays ended up trading for Hamels and Greinke, they'd have a shot at October baseball :shrug:

Seems HIGHLY unlikely at this point with that rotation.

The Dbacks want MLB ready talent for Upton and the Pirates just don't have that right now so I don't see them getting Upton. My bold prediction is the Marlins and Angels make a serious run and that Victorino is the one that goes to the Pirates.

The brewers do not trade greinke, become buyers, and get an impact player that pushes them into the playoffs.

The braves trade for some pitching help and win the nl east.

Red sox fire bobby v just after the trade deadline.

Pujols hits over .315 by the end of the year and the angels win the west.

The yankees waste prospects on hamels, say "screw it" to their $189 mil goal, and sign him to a huge extension

Pujols will hit 30 bombs
Trout will distance himself as the MVP leader Hamilton a far away 2nd
Rangers collapse and angels win the al west
Kemp manages to hit 35 bombs Yankees will centrally cool off
