I’m not a huge fan of writing big predictions pieces. It just seems to daunting, by the time my thoughts have crystalized about what might happen in the upcoming season, everyone has already written theirs, and the season has started. Oh, and I’m always wrong too. Other than that, they’re great. That said, when someone shoots me an email and says “what’s gonna happen?” I usually crank out 200-500 words instantly. The lesson here: don’t think — it can only hurt the ballclub.
Russ Smith of Splice Today shot me one of those emails over the weekend — shot them to Jonah Keri, Tim Marchman, and David Pinto too — and out thoughts about 2009, as well as Russ’ own, can be found at Splice’s Opening Day post.
