Baseball Predictions!

Posted by davefowkes on 04/05/2009

Well I do not see any playoff baseball in our future here in the Bay Area. Both teams could certainly challenge and will hopefully keep us interested throughout the summer, but in the end the fall short, and it will be all about football in October. That said, here are my predictions for Major League Baseball this year.

AMERICAN LEAGUE

WEST

ANGELS

A’S

RANGERS

MARINERS

CENTRAL

TIGERS

TWINS

INDIANS

WHITE SOX

ROYALS

EAST

RED SOX

YANKEES

RAYS

BLUE JAYS

ORIOLES

NATIONAL LEAGUE

WEST

DODGERS

DIAMONDBACKS

GIANTS

ROCKIES

PADRES

CENTRAL

CARDINALS

CUBS

ASTROS

REDS

BREWERS

PIRATES

EAST

METS

PHILLIES

MARLINS

BRAVES

NATIONALS

It is very tough to call this year. I think parity is strong in baseball right now. The AL Central is the real toss up with all five teams able to win. Even the Royals seem to be everyone’s darlings this year. Red Sox, Yankees and Rays should battle to the end in the east. I just don’t like the west much but I think the Angels will prevail.

In the National league, the east is solid as well with the Mets, Phillies and Marlins all looking very good. The Central has five teams that could win it but I like St. Louis if they keep Carpenter and Wainright healthy. And the West should also be close with Arizona having a good team and the Rockies able to mount a challenge, but I think the Dodgers will hold them off.

For the World Series:

METS OVER RED SOX!

And Bill Buckner won’t even be involved!

All guesses, but what the heck, it is something to do. What do you think?
