This year, Cabrini students have made their predictions on which two teams in Major League Baseball they think are going to finish out on top for this upcoming 2007 season.

The New York Yankees and the Philadelphia Phillies are two teams in which fans have high hopes for to go all the way.

The MLB teams practice all year long and during the off-season they practice for a period of time in warmer weather, which is known as spring training.

During spring training, new recruits are able to prove to themselves and the team that as rookies they are able to be starters just as the veterans on the team.

The Philadelphia Phillies have recruited 19-year-old pitcher Kyle Drabek, son of former White Sox player Doug Drabek.

Impressing the Phillies manager Charlie Manuel with his arm, Drabek may find himself at the top of the mound come opening day.

The New York Yankees are gearing up for the new season by switching positions such as Jason Giambi to full-time designated hitter.

Newcomer Doug Mientkiewicz who is a veteran of the MLB signed a $1.5 million contract of the winter with the Yankees.

Yankees fans are waiting to see what kind of magic Kei Igawa, a pitcher from Japan, will display during the 2007 season.
