With the 2010 baseball season upon us, we wanted to continue a Hidden Track tradition started in 2007 where we chat with of our favorite musicians about their love for America’s past time. For the first part of this year’s Baseball Preview, we asked them for predictions on the upcoming season, while the second part of our questionnaire got a bit more personal.
Batting second in the 2010 Hidden Track Baseball Preview line up is The Low Anthem’s bass player – and baseball historian, having taught the subject for High Schoolers – Jeff Prystowsky. We spoke with Jeff about his beloved Cardinals, his thoughts on the upcoming season, his favorite ballpark and many other subjects. Check it out…
Hidden Track: What team do you think will win the World Series and what team will they beat in that final series?
Jeff Prystowsky: St Louis Cardinals vs. New York Yankees, with the Cards winning it all.
HT: Which pitchers do you think will win the AL and NL Cy Young awards?
JP: NL Cy Young – Tim Lincecum (San Francisco Giants), AL Cy Young – C.C. Sabathia (New York Yankess)
HT: Which players do you think will win the AL and NL MVP awards?
JP: Albert Pujols (St. Louis Cardinals) and Dustin Pedroia (Boston Red Sox)
