Daily Discussion: Play Ball!

While there is no genuine "Opening Day" anymore (the Marlins and Cardinals played last night, the A's and Mariners played last week in Japan and the Rangers and Astros both don't open until tomorrow), today is the first day of multiple MLB games for the 2012 season. Much like we do prior to every TCU football game in the fall, we want to give you the chance to show off your psychic abilities by predicting what will happen this baseball season. We'll take a look back after the season to see who had the most accurate prognostications.

In the comments section, give your predictions for:

-Final regular-season records for both the Rangers and Astros
-Division winners and wild card teams in both leagues
-MVP for both leagues
-Cy Young winner for both leagues
-Rookie of the Year for both leagues
-LCS winners and losers in both leagues
-The 2012 World Series Champions
