2008 Prediction Thread (Hot Stove Edition)

It is abundantly clear to me that I can't wait till spring training to start pretending that I know what the season will bring. With much of the 2007 core remaining intact, only a few questions need be answered with regard to the roster. Still, there are some fun questions to ponder over - will Franklin put up better numbers against RHP's, who takes over pie duties from Nixon, and so on. To get the ball rolling, here are some questions bound to be on everyone's mind.....

(1) Will C.C re-sign with the Indians before the start of the season? If so, what do you expect the terms of the new agreement to be (years and dollars)?

-

(2) _____ will pitch the most number of innings as the Indians' #5 starter.

-

(3) Who is most likely to be traded this offseason - Barfield, Lee, Shoppach, Borowski, Sabathia? Where does this player go?

-

(4) What kind of numbers (HRs, AVG/OBP/SLG line) will Franklin Gutierrez put up in 2008?

-

(5) Who will be Tribe's thirdbaseman by season's end - Marte, Blake or mystery player?

-

(6) _____ will be the Tribe's left fielder by season's end.

-

(7) The 2008 version of Fausto Carmona will be ____ (High impact, makes it on the 25 man roster before May)

-

(8) The 2008 version of Asdrubal Cabrera / Kenny Lofton will be ____ (Fills a void on the roster and arrives sometime after August)

-

(9) _____ will rocket up the ranks of minor league prospects by the start of spring training (only Adam Miller wouldn't qualify since he's the only Tribe prospect consistently in the top 25)

-

(10) The Tribe's biggest offseason trade acquisition will be a _____ (give the player's position)

-

TIEBREAKER: The Royals will finish 2008 in ____ place.
