Here’s How the 2011 MLB Season Lays Out

Tired of all the endless blather about Major League Baseball? The mind-numbing tedium known as sports talk radio (“This is Bad Dog from Vallejo… why can’t the Giants snag Albert Pujols for Eli Whiteside and Nate Schierholtz– the Cards really need an outfielder and… “).

Or the sheer density of angry sports blogs from the far reaches of the great ethernet (“Pissed off? You’re damn right I’m pissed off. Ownership sucks, the manager has his head up his big fat ass, and the starting staff couldn’t even find a paperbag to punch out of… “).

And of course that intellectual black hole otherwise known as FoxSports TV (“Wow, that booming home run from A-Rod just tied this game, Tim McCarver…”. “You know, Joe, I have to disagree with A-Rod’s approach here– in this situation a walk would have actually been a better play for the Yankees than the two run homer…”).

Thankfully this year you can skip all that because the The Giants Cove organization has put together its predictions for the 2011 MLB season. Armed with the following information you can now book that five month bike tour of eastern Poland knowing that there will be no surprises waiting for you when you get back:
