Hope Springs Eternal

first_imgOne week from today the 2014 Major League Baseball Season gets underway.  At this point in Spring Training, everyone still thinks they are going to win their division.  The next week will start showing who really has a chance of doing well.  Everybody is waiting for this baseball season to get underway if for no other reason than it might finally say that winter is over.  From the looks of this week’s weather forecast, I am not so sure about that.  But we always believe that once they start playing baseball for real, spring is here!The St. Louis Cardinals and Pittsburgh Pirates seem to have an edge in the National League Central, but let’s not rule out the Reds just yet.  Even the Chicago Cubs are improved over last year which means that the NL Central will again be contested to the final week.At least with the new playoff system NL Central teams still have that chance for 3 of them to make the playoffs like they did last year.  Los Angeles and Atlanta are supposed to be the powers, but like I said earlier, hope springs eternal at this time of the year.  Until they play for real next week, everybody has a chance.last_img
