Peer into the future, if you dare...
On September 30, 2008, the following will have come to pass:
-Juan Gonzalez will start the season on the major league roster. He will get 100 PA's before re-re-retiring because his hamstring says, "No mas."
-Anthony Reyes will spend some portion of this year in the bullpen.
-No Cardinals middle infielder (over 150 at-bats) will have an OPS over .700
-One of the outfielders (Lud, Dunc, Ank) will break out and hit 35 HR.
-Adam Wainwright will be the only Cards starter to break double-digits in wins.
-The Cards finish 4th in the Central with a 74-88 record, behind the Cubs, Brewers, and Reds.
-Colby Rasmus comes up in June and finishes 3rd in the ROY vote, behind Kosuke Fukudome and Geovany Soto.
