2011 MLB Predictions

Posted on: March 30, 2011 4:34 pm
Since everyone is throwing out their predictions...I thought I would do a few of my own.  
American League
EASTYankeesRed SoxBlue JaysRaysOrioles
The Red Sox are the most overhyped team of the last 10 years going into this season.  For that reason I am not picking them to win the division and I think the Yankees will fill their need for pitching by the deadline.
CENTRALWhite SoxTwinsTigersRoyals Indians
White Sox are clearly better then everyone in the division all around.  The Twins have more talent but their pitching will continue to hold them back.
Pitching sets the A's apart...the Rangers will miss out due to young pitching and a prolonged injury to Hamilton and Beltre.
Phillies rotation will carry them early, Utley will get healthy and some unsung heroes will step up just as Jayson Werth did before he became an overpaid National.  Braves will nip at them all year long but injury will cost them.
Closest division in all of baseball.  I think the Brewers line-up plus all the acquired pitching will get them through.
Another close division, but I think they get their heads on straight this year and actually make a run.
ALCS- Red Sox over White SoxNLCS-Phillies over DodgersWorld Series- Phillies over Red Sox
In the end in a 7 game series with 4 aces, the Red Sox can't hit, and besides Lester they are hittable.  It will go 7 games with the Phillies taking the rubber match.
NL MVP- Carlos Gonzalez, Joey Votto, Ryan Howard, Buster Posey, Albert PujolsAL MVP- Adrian Gonzalez, Robinson Cano, Joe Mauer, Josh Hamilton, Adam Dunn
NL Cy Young- Roy Halladay, Cole Hamels, Cliff Lee, Josh Johnson, Zack GrienkeAL Cy Young- Jon Lester, CC Sabathia, Brett Anderson, Justin Verlander, Felix Hernandez
