When the Padres GM and Manager settle on a 25 man roster you know it's time to make your annual Padres Predictions.
But before you haphazardly make your predictions I must warn you, there are consequences. At the end of the season, I'll tally your predictions and pick the most psychic / knowledgeable fan among you and scorn the rest. Make no mistake there will be a day of reckoning where you will be held accountable!
For years I've listened to a late night radio program dealing with the supernatural called Coast to Coast AM, once hosted by Art Bell. Around New Years he'd have whole shows set aside for callers to make predictions for the year. He'd write the new predictions in a list and interlace them with results from the previous year's. He was always very clear that he wanted people to really focus on their predictions and be specific. It was not a time for vagueness or wild guesses. Since he left the new hosts aren't as strict and the results have suffered.
I want you to really reach down into your psychic core and connect with the future, read the tea leaves in the Padres' cup. Meditate on your predictions, and only then, post them.
Answer me the following questions in the comments section:
- What will be the 2012 Padres' record?
- What place will they finish in the NL West?
- Who will win the NL West?
- What Padre player will definitely be traded before the end of the season?
- Who will be the Padres All-Star(s) ?
We warn you to be careful if you try to summon your answers using the dark arts. The services of those that dwell in the darkness are not free. For those of you that are time travelers do your best not to interfere with the space-time continuum.
Predict World Series Champions, All Star Game winner, etc. if you are are so inclined.
