3 things are certain in the United States of Obama: Death, Taxes, and the Woz Guarantee. When Woz gives the Guarantee, book it. Bet the farm. Bet your sister. Bet your credit card maxes on the internet. The Woz Guarantee has been a staple at CH now for a solid year and 3 months and has never failed (except for those few times it did). It's a solid 100% investment (well...maybe more like 55%).
With the BS aside, I'm going to "go out on a limb" here. I'm going to predict a win total for the Brewers higher then any you've probably seen on the internet. I'm thinking 94 wins this year.
My reason for such lunacy? Mainly, the offense. I'm thinking BIG years from a lot of guys. Guys are pissed. Lots of chips on shoulders. Everybody has got their money...got a taste of the big time last year...got to learn how to handle the spotlight...and are now ready to go. Corey Hart got paid and wants to show last September was an aberration. JJ Hardy got paid more and wants to show his next team he's a legit star in this league. Prince got paid and wants to show everyone he's worth the cash. Braun got paid...and well...he's the best player ever. Hall wants to get to a reasonable level. Weeks want to show he can be somewhat consistent. Cameron will do what he does. Kendall can't hit the ball out of the infield...but hey...the pitchers seem to like him.
We're going to score a lot of runs. This much I'm sure of. The starting rotation has been built to eat innings. If we get Hoffman back by late April, I'll buy into the whole "stabilizing" force he brings to the pen.
The 2009 Milwaukee Brewers are a train heading to October people. There's room. Get on Board.
