Sunday, April 6, 2014
Today is officially the 3rd anniversary of Hops and Homers. I've said it here before, but it bears repeating. I started this blog to have a voice, a place to go to talk about anything I want. I have done that and plan to continue to do so. I know it hasn't been as much as I would like recently, but things are going to get better with that. I am working on a post about my recent trip down to Tampa where the Wife and I visited some family and also some very good breweries. I'm looking at you 7venth Sun. So we have that to look forward to. Not to mention, hopefully in the next day or two the NY Rangers clinch a playoff spot and the Mets are getting into the swing of their season. I also plan to get back to my roots and do some beer reviews again. It's been a good 3 years. Here's to many more years talking about IPAs to ERAs and everything in between.
Until next time.

Along with the young arms, the team has gotten better at the plate, too. Curtis Granderson is an upgrade and affords some protection in the lineup for David Wright. I still think one more big bat is needed to make the lineup really potent, but until then, this team can compete. I see them finishing a close 3rd in the NL East behind the Nationals and Braves.
Here are the rest of my predictions for the 2014 MLB Season:
East: Washington Nationals
Central: Pittsburgh Pirates
West: Los Angeles Dodgers
Wild Cards: Cincinnati Reds / St. Louis Cardinals
MVP: Adrian Gonzalez, LA Dodgers
Cy Young: Adam Wainwright, St Louis Cardinals
East: Baltimore Orioles
Central: Detroit Tigers
West: Los Angeles Angels
Wild Cards: Tampa Bay Rays / Texas Rangers
MVP: Prince Fielder, Texas Rangers
Cy Young: David Price, Tampa Bay Rays
NLCS: Washington Nationals vs. Los Angeles Dodgers
ALCS: Detroit Tigers vs. Tampa Bay Rays
World Series: Dodgers vs. Tigers
Champion: Los Angeles Dodgers
I was pretty close with my predictions from last year. Hopefully I can build off of that and do well again this year.
Until next time.
