Ken Rosenthal Loves the D-Backs this Year, too


I told you yesterday how a writer at Hardballtalk.com liked the D-Backs in 2012–well so does one of the most respected MLB reporters in the country.

Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports not only picks the Diamondbacks to win the NL West, but he likes then to roll all the way to the World Series.  Rosenthal pick the D-Backs to finish ahead of–in order–the Giants, Dodgers, Rockies and Padres in the NL West.  In the playoffs, he likes them to knock off the Reds in the NLDS and the Giants in the NLCS.  However, he predicts the D-Backs will lose to the Detroit Tigers in the World Series–which, being a well publicized Tiger fan, would obviously create my biggest personal dream and professional nightmare possible.

Also, Rosenthal’s picks will look strangely similar to my picks which have yet been released on Venom Strikes.  I promise you I have proof that I got my predictions in weeks ago and that I’m simply not following the national guy’s coattails.  You’ll see our World Series picks tomorrow.
