Baseball Predictions For Today – 2010 MLB Baseball Predictions

Baseball Predictions For Today

These aren’t the Cleveland Indians from a few years ago. This team has been gutted by trades, from Cy Young winners C.C. Sabathia and Cliff Lee to dealing Victor Martinez to the Boston Red Sox. The 2010 edition of the Cleveland Indians will be very young and not very deep.

Pitching

Lee threw 22 games for the Indians last year before being traded to the Philadelphia Phillies, and if you take away his efforts, then this team had a 5.75 ERA. Overall they were second-to-last in the majors with a 5.06 team ERA, so this year things could get ugly on the mound.

Fausto Carmona is the team’s top hurler, but after posting ERAs of 5.44 and 6.32 the last two seasons, fans can’t be excited about that. Justin Masterson, who came over from Boston in the Martinez trade, and Aaron Laffey will be two young arms this team is counting on to eat up innings. Baseball Predictions For Today

Jake Westbrook missed last season coming back from Tommy John surgery, but how effective will he be now? The No. 5 starter is slotted to be David Huff, but his ERA was 5.61 in 2009. When it comes to the bullpen a lead does not guarantee a win. Kerry Wood, Chris Perez, and Rafael Perez are going to have to do a better job of locking down close games if this team wants to move up the standings.

Lineup

The Indians won’t be scaring opposing pitchers this year either. Instead of veterans like Martinez or Kelly Shopach behind the plate, you’ll find inexperience. The infield is composed of Russell Branyan, Luis Valbuena, Jhonny Peralta, and Asdrubal Cabrera.

Branyan displayed some power a year ago but hit.251. Cabrera hit over.300 but hit just six home runs. Travis Hafner is one of those guys who you have to wonder about performance enhancing drugs with, due to the steep dropoff and injuries he’s sustained the past couple of years.

Out in the outfield there are a couple of players I like, with Grady Sizmore poised for a bounce back year and Shin-Soo Choo an under the radar star who hit over.300 with 20 home runs. Matt LaPorta will be given his shot out in left. Baseball Predictions For Today

How the NFL has became what it is today

There have been many changes in pro nfl leading to what it is now. Modern day pro nfl developed from rugby between 1869 and 1876. In 1876 the first rules for American football were written. This is when Walter Camp, who became known as the father of American football, first became involved with pro nfl. The first pro nfl player was made in 1982, William Heffelfinger. Then in 1898 a pro nfl touchdown was changed from four points to five points and changed again in 1912 from five points to six points.

Arizona Cardinals who got their name in 1994 after changing their name 6 times between 1899 and 1994 this pro nfl team remains the oldest continuing operation in pro football. In 1904 the field goal was changed from five points to four points and changed again in 1909 from four points to three points. The foward pass was not legalized in pro nfl until 1906. In 1933 the American Professional Football Association changed its name to the National Football League.

There are two Conferences in pro nfl, one being the American Football Conference and the second being the National Football Conference. These conferences were created in 1970 after the NFL merged with it’s competing top-level league, the AFL (American Football League). All the teams in the NFC are either expansion teams created after the merger, or were in the NFL before the merger. Three pro nfl teams that were in the NFL moved to the AFC the year of the merger so both conferences would have equal number of teams. Other than those three teams, all the AFC teams were in the AFL or are expansion teams created after the merger.

In modern day pro nfl there are a total of 32 teams and they play 16 games in a single season.
