Well it is time to make my predictions for the upcoming year. Everyone better join in on these.
I seriously considered switching Toronto and Tampa Bay. The Rays will eventually (i.e. next couple years) do some damage in that division. Not saying they will win it, or ever get a wild card, but they could be the team that knocks the second place team out of the wild card hunt…But, not this year, not yet. Yankees get the Wild Card.
The Tigers went out and truly improved their team. Miguel Cabrera in that lineup, scary. If that team stays healthy, it’s not nearly that close, if everyone gets hurt, then the Indians have a shot.
My favorite four team division…
Bedard helps the M’s out, but not enough to overcome the Angels.
I know the Mets choked last year. But, I hate Philadelphia, and I will not pick them. Yes, I am childish…Phillies do get the Wild Card.
The Pirates suck, and will not do any better than last year.
The D-Backs played much better than they really were. Their W-L expectancy had them with a losing record. You can say those things are unreliable, but look at how close they get every other team…well whatever.
