Paul Lebowitz, the author of Breaking Balls: A Novel of Baseball and the blog on MLB.com under the name Prince Of New York, places everything anyone could ever want to know about the upcoming baseball season between these covers. Why the Los Angeles Angels will defeat the New York Mets in the World Series. Why the Baltimore Orioles will win the American League Wild Card and the Philadelphia Phillies the National League Wild Card. Why the Boston Red Sox will not even come close to catching the Yankees. Why Alfonso Soriano will win the National League MVP and Carlos Zambrano will win the Cy Young Award-and the Cubs still won't make the playoffs. If you want to know clearly and concisely what will happen in this year's Major League Baseball season, without mind-numbing statistics complete with the trendy confusing and condescending language, you must have this book.
