Don't think you were going an entire week without a new edition of Big League Stewcast, dear Stewies!
A hectic Opening Week precluded us from getting our usual baseball star as a guest, but that actually works out perfectly for us. Since we also failed to get our 2009 baseball predictions out there, I joined fellow Stewards Nick Friedell and David Brown on Thursday night to talk about the season ahead.
No surprise that it turned into a marathon chat session, but if you stick with us for the near hour, you'll be able to learn our ultimate MLB predictions and be able to hold them over our heads once they go horribly, horribly wrong.
Among the highlights:
• One of us actually picks the Cubs to win the World Series and it might not be who you think.
• One of us picks Evan Longoria for American League MVP and the identity of that prognosticator is probably not a surprise if you read Big League Stew every morning.
• Two of us are making the horrible mistake of picking the Yankees over Tampa Bay for the AL wild card. (If you figured out that second bulletpoint, you'll be able to figure out this one.)
Anyway, take a little time this weekend and listen in on the three of us discuss the opening of another great baseball season. Which one of us will be least wrong?
