Baseball Predictions, Part 8: Ken Rosenthal

Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal is not the tallest of reporters, a fact which is totally cool by me. But it's kind of funny that his writing (mostly tweeting, by the way) is pretty short-form as well. If I'm reading his capsule factoids correctly, he's got the Giants ahead of the Dodgers this year (but it's kinda hard to tell from his words):


Giants: Need Tim Lincecum and Barry Zito to extend 2012 postseason magic; otherwise, back of rotation becomes real concern.

Dodgers: Train-wreck potential. And then they’ll sign Robinson Cano and Jacoby Ellsbury.

Diamondbacks: Chance to surprise due to their pitching, potential of Paul Goldschmidt to explode.

Padres: Will be better in second half than first once Chase Headley, Yasmani Grindal return and rest of pitching gets healthy.

Rockies: Actually like their offense. Their pitching is a threat to public safety.

The Rockies got only 12 words from Robothal. The Snakes only got 13 words.

But we only got 11 words. At least he didn't say "highest payroll in baseball", I suppose.
