Bold

Troy Tulowitzki wins the National League MVP award. If he stays healthy, everyone will see just how good of a baseball player this man is.

Not-so-bold

The St. Louis Cardinals win the NL Central. They’re just kind of a perfect baseball team.

Bold

Of the San Francisco Giants’ additions, one works and one doesn’t. Tim Hudson will be good. Michael Morse, not so much.

Not-so-bold

The Chicago Cubs make it 106 years without a World Series title. This team is a mess.

Bold

The Washington Nationals beat the Oakland A’s in the World Series.
