2013 Staff Predictions

By on April 1, 2013

Though the writers at Disciples of Uecker focus primarily on the Milwaukee Brewers and the NL Central, we’re all fans of baseball more generally. Opening Day has finally arrived, and it’s time to unveil our 2013 Staff Predictions.

Be sure to bookmark this page for later use, as it should serve as ample fodder for criticism after the regular season.

Tell us what do you think.

    Thanks guys, always interesting to see what the experts think– and do I see a Royals sighting? Fascinating.

  2. Michael says: April 1, 2013

    Interesting that 3 of you picked Harper as NL MVP.

    • Bob says: April 1, 2013

      Its going to take a lot of improvement to go from 121 wRC+ to the 160+ you see from MVP players. He’s a great young player, but I just don’t see that happening this season.

  3. Nicholas Zettel says: April 1, 2013

    Wow! I am surprised to see that everyone has a rather compact NL Central. This should be a jam-packed division.
