    US Presswire photo Prince Fielder and Miguel Cabrera will lead the Tigers to a World Series title. Trying to predict on April 4 what MLB's standings will look like on Oct. 4 — and then trying to predict how the entire postseason will play out — is a fruitless effort. There are so many unknown…

    Apr 4, 2012, 3:08 PM EDT

  9. Lannan to Syracuse, Detwiler is 5th starter

    Apr 3, 2012, 11:59 PM EDT

    Faced with a decision to go with an established-though-unspectacular pitcher or a promising-though-unproven pitcher at the back end of their rotation, the Nationals today made the surprising move to go with potential over experience. The Nationals optioned left-hander John Lannan, a two-time Opening Day starter and last year's staff leader in wins and innings pitched,…
