2011 MLB Predictions

Posted on: January 14, 2011 3:32 pm
 

After going through some football withdrawal I want take this opportunity to go through some MLB predictions for the upcoming season.  Trying to guess who's going to win the World Series is not easy, especially with the off-season free agent moves and unforeseen injuries that may occur in exhibition play, but I look at it if I had to pick teams right now and everything created equal how would I predict a winner?  The answer:  PITCHING, PITCHING, PITCHING, PITCHING; by that I mean Halladay, Lee, Hamels, and Oswalt.

The Phillies will have to be #1 on everyone's list, no matter how much you may hate them, which to me would be stupid, because if you love baseball, you have to love this team and what they've been able to do over the last 5 years.  However, the trophy goes to the winner in October and this is only January, so let's take a look at how I see it all panning out for the upcoming year:

National League

East

Phillies
Braves
Mets
Nationals
Marlins

Central

Cardinals
Reds
Brewers
Cubs
Astros
Pirates

West
Rockies
Giants
Padres
Dodgers
Diamondbacks

Division Winners:  Phillies, Cardinals, Rockies
Wildcard: Giants

NLCS:  Phillies vs. Cardinals

NL Champs:  Phillies

American League

East

Red Sox
Yankees
Rays
Blue Jays
Orioles

Central

Tigers
Twins
White Sox
Indians
Royals

West

Angels
Mariners
Rangers
Athletics

Division Winners:  Red Sox, Tigers, Angels
Wildcard:  Yankees

ALCS:  Red Sox vs. Yankees

AL Champs:  Red Sox

WORLD SERIES :  PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES VS. BOSTON RED SOX

WORLD SERIES CHAMPS  :  PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES   IN 5 GAMES

This is a no-brainer and I'm not doing this because I'm a Phillies fan, I'm doing this because with that starting rotation and that lineup they can't lose even if they put Ryan Howard on the mound, okay wait, maybe if they did that then I'd change my pick, but that's not gonna happen.  Remember, this is barring any injury and all things created equal, so I may be wrong, but this is my prediction, talk to me in October, by the way I'll be on Broad Street celebrating the Philles 2nd World Series Championship in the last 4 years.
