Atlanta, GA ( – Hello fellow baseball enthusiasts, welcome to the McCabe Magazines season 30 preview issue. Sorry for the delay in the preview, I do have a really good excuse. Its vacation season and I spent the last few weeks on vacation in beautiful Atlanta, Georgia and surrounding areas. I had an absolutely fantastic time, everyday we got up and went to Lennox Mall in Buckhead, where I sat for eight hours each day on a bench near the escalator by the north entrance and waited for my wife, while she spent every single dime I had, all future dimes, any and all imaginary dimes that don’t really exist. We also visit relatives that ate like carnivores. I'm not kidding, they ate like a Tyrannosaurus better known as a T-Rex. Every day they served greasy fried chicken, 2” thick pork chops, mashed potatoes with the entire inventory of butter from the state of Wisconsin with huge flaky biscuits the size of a Volkswagen. I informed my beloved kin folk that I’m a vegetarian, and I do not eat anything with legs. They thought that was the funniest joke ever and serve Ham Hocks and gravy the next day. Wow, what an exhilarating and refreshing two weeks in the Deep South. Enough about my vacation, I see you guys getting extremely jealous so I’ll go ahead and change the subject to the questions at hand, who will be our playoff teams and the World Series Champions in season 30. 

The Reds win it all over the Nationals 4-2

The Season 30 World Series Champions will be the Cincinnati Reds knocking off the Washington Nationals 4 games to 2. We have been looking at this organization for several years now and we think they are ready to bounce! The Reds will be lead by Del Wulf (3B), Sam Sefcik (RF), ace of the staff Albert Kirby (SP1) and Charley Reynolds (CF) the best centerfielder we’ve seen since Diego Hernandez. We look for Cincinnati to win 97 games and battle the San Diego Padres for the National League pennant and finish off a fantastic season by beating the powerful Washington Nationals from the American League. Our panel of experts feel the Nationals will beat the Houston Astros and win the American League pennant for the third time in four years. The Nationals are loaded at every position but the straw that stirs the drink is shortstop and former Rookie of the Year Award winner Bartolo Hernandez (SS), along with Raymond Wall (3B), Darrel Davies (1B) another former ROY, pitchers Terry Campbell (P), and closer Terrence Patterson. 

The rest of the playoff picture will look like this. The American League division winners will be, The Toronto Blue Jays, Nationals, Houston Astro’s, and the Los Angeles Dodgers. The National League playoff teams will be the Cincinnati Reds, Pittsburgh Pirates, Richmond Virginians, and the San Diego Padres. Wildcard clubs will be the Minnesota Twins, Texas rangers, Cleveland Indians and the Florida Marlins.
