Season 3 Preview - AL South

Leon Jackson - Cobbfather Post Gazette w/ special correspondent Shenaynay from the Psychic Friends network.

In the continuing series of divisional previews for Cobbfather 3, it's on to the AL South!

AL SOUTH

4. Mexico City Gringos
Last Season: 34-128

Shenaynay’s crystal ball shows: a giant question mark

Gazette says: will the organization call up their “studs” this season, or will it be another season in the tank, errr cellar. It looks like the Gringos will start the season with the most pathetic roster in the league, and we can’t be sure that ownership will actually follow through on the promise to make the team competitive this year.

Psychic Friends Network prediction: 49-113, 4th place
Vegas Odds to win it all: 200-1

3. Louisville Posse
Last Season: 68-94

Shenaynay’s crystal ball shows: a phoenix rising gloriously rising from the ashes!

Gazette says: Louisville looks to be on the rise this season, as their opening day roster looks much improved. The division is very competitive, so they still might a season or two away from contending for the division title.

Psychic Friends Network prediction: 84-78, 3rd place
Vegas Odds to win it all: 40-1

2. Monterrey Ducks
Last Season: 94-68

Shenaynay’s crystal ball shows: a matador skillfully guiding the bull through his flag amongst a herd of cheering fans. OlĂ©!!

Gazette says: Monterrey looks to be still fielding a solid team this season, with a nice combination of pitching, defense and offense. Look for them to continue their winning ways this season this season.

Psychic Friends Network prediction: 90-72, 2nd place
Vegas Odds to win it all: 20-1

1. Florida Shark Waves
Last Season: 122-40

Shenaynay’s crystal ball shows: a shark viciously devouring its prey.

Gazette says: Florida looks to be in for another fantastic season, lead once again by their dominant pitching. Their offense is nothing to scoff at either, and is underrated. May as well order that division title banner, although it must be said the division is getting tougher.

Psychic Friends Network prediction: 110-52, 1st place
Vegas Odds to win it all: 7-2

UP NEXT: NL SOUTH
