April is complete and it’s time to review our 2010 Major League predictions that we made on April 2nd.  The Tampa Bay Devil Rays are in first place in the AL East with a record of 17 – 6.  No one from our podcast crew has predicted the Rays to win the AL East.

In the AL Central, the Twins are in first with a record of 15 – 8.  Professor Bukiet, Ed, Farley and Mark have predicted that the Twins will win the AL Central.

In the AL West, the Angels and Athletics are tied with a 12 – 12 record.  Mark, Rodney Johnson, What and I’don’t know have predicted the Angels will win the AL West.

Currently, the New York Yankees would qualify as the American League wild card team.  Professor Bukiet, Rodney Johnson, Ed, Farley, Mark, Baseball Bob, Who and I don’t know have predicted that the Yankees will make the playoffs.

In the NL East, the New York Mets are in first place with a 14 – 9 record.  Only Farley and Who were wise enough to have this vision.

In the NL Central, the St. Louis Cardinals are in first with a 15 – 8 record.  Professor Bukiet, Ed, Baseball Bob, Who and I don’t know predicted that the Cardinals would rule their division in 2010.

In the NL West, the San Diego Padres are currently in first with a 15 – 8 record.  No staff member has predicted that the Padres will rule the West.

Lastly, in the NL wild card, the San Francisco Giants would qualify as the wild card with a 13 – 9 record.  Only Rodney Johnson predicted the Giants to make the playoffs.  It was this bold prediction that allowed Rodney Johnson to capture the lead in our predictions race.  After one month, Rodney Johnson is in the lead with a long season of baseball yet to be played.

The Cactus League starts its 65th season and it is better than ever!  2010 marks the first year that the Cactus League has as many teams as the Grapefruit League – 15 teams each.

Episode 3 starts with Ed, Farly and Mark longing for a plane ticket to Phoenix.  In the next best thing, Ed interviews Marvelous Marv, Grand Canyon tour guide extraordinaire.  Marvelous Marv takes our brains through the wonders of the Grand Canyon and teaches us about the 7 Natural Wonders of the World.

Rodney Johnson from playballexperience.com teaches us about the history of the Cactus League and then the Wise Guys test their knowledge about spring training in Arizona.  Lastly, Baseball Bob makes his glorious debut and presents his trivia question of the podcast.  What current U.S. Senator pitched a no hitter in both leagues?
