Brewers Opening Day!

Annual prediction: 162-0.

FYI - that unreadable poll question is "How will the Cubs blow it this year?"

I for one applaud your optimism. I can see the Cubbies being pretty dominant until it you know... matters. The Crew? Who knows. I'm optimistic too but maybe not quite 162-0.. My prediction 160-2.

Hey now Soup just double for an RBI in his first at bat of the season. Well yeah I guess I'd still rather have a healthy Z.

Update: The Giants manager is a moron! He already pulled Lincecum, and now the Brewers are up.

However, Suppan is still in the game, so that's subject to change momentarily.

I predict the following in order:

1) A better than average start of the season for the Crew
2) The inevitable "Make Plans for October!" threads will start popping up in mid-May.
3) Over-the-top crowing over four or five Brewer picks for the All-Star Game.
4) The Cardinal-cast-off pitching staff will implode starting late July.
5) Trevor Hoffman's arm falls off right before the trading deadline, paving the way for the triumphant return to Miller Park of...wait for it...Eric Gagne.
6) Gagne spends the month of September in the bullpen as the month passes without any save opportunities while the Brewers blow a ten-game NL Central lead.
7) October 2, 2009: After Tony LaRussass successfully goads Jeff Suppan into getting ejected for throwing at a Cardinal batter in the middle of a perfect game in the eighth inning. Macha goes to Gagne - who proceeds to give up three runs to get the game tied. Macha then goes to a recently-activated Hoffman (the first pitcher to throw after having his arm re-attached - they'll call it "Trevor Hoffman surgery") who gives up a winning home run to Albert Pujols - thus clinching the NL Central for the Houston Astros (what, you were expecting something different from me?).
Eight) Proving that the Baseball Gods care about little ol' nevermore, the NL Wild Card Chicago Cubs catch fire FINALLY in October and go on to win the World Series in six games over the Kansas City Royals. Don Denkinger comes out of retirement to blow a crucial call against the Royals - thus making one part of the Universe more in balance.
9) Yovani Gallardo wins the NL Cy Young Award with a few more votes than Carlos Zambrano. Gallardo has 30 wins to Zambrano's 28.

Hey, at least it beats having Ben Sheet's fragility destroy your season.

And the most unrealistic part of your post is.....

I say Royals in 7.
