Well here it goes, predictions in February.

Tell me what you think.

AL

East

Yankees 97-65-too much talent to miss playoffs

Red Sox 95-67- Duke it out with Yanks, Indians, Tigers all year for playoff spot

Blue Jays 90-72- In NL, playoff team, in AL East not even top 2

Rays 81-81-.500 Whoo Hoo!

Orioles 59-103- Brutal, just brutal.

 

Central

Tigers 99-63- Willis returns to form to complete best pitching staff in Majors

Indians 95-67-Corner outfielders are questionable, but otherwise excellent

White Sox 84-78- Atleast trying to improve

Twins 80-82- Will almost get to .500 in surprisingly decent season

Royals 71-91- Blah.

 

West

Angels 94-68- Another division win for LA of Anaheim. What a dumb name.

Mariners 93-69- Good effort, but not there yet.

Rangers 75-87- Good year for the Rangeers, I guess.

A's 75-87- Tough transition year for Oakland.

 

NL

East

Mets 96-66- I'm not on their bandwagon, they just have so much talent, only Rightfield is an issue.

Phillies 93-69- Another good year from Phils, and Utley looks to complete 3 year MVP sweep.

Braves 84-78- Good year from the Braves, but Mets, Phils too much.

Marlins 70-92- Rebuilding again.

Nationals 70-92- LoDuca was a good pickup.

 

Central

Cubs 89-73- Division champs again?

Brewers 86-76- Just short of Cubbies.

Cardinals 83-79- Pujols won't hold off surgery once he sees team isnt competitive.

Astros 81-81- Tejada does extremely well, but not good enough team to win consistently. 

Reds 81-81- Improvement.

Pirates- 70-92- Sam-old Bucs.

 

West- By the way top four teams can go in all different orders

D-Backs 94-68- Pitching wins championships.

Rockies 90-72- Cinderella's shoe still fits nicely.

Padres 88-74- Pitching wins championships, but you still need a bit more pop (ie Chris Young in ARZ).

Dodgers 87-75- Good team, but not as good as the top 3.

Giants 67-95- Contend with O's for last in MLB, but lke role of spoilers at end of year.

WILDCARD

AL- Tigers over Angels in 5 games, Indians over Yankees in 4.

NL- Cubs over Mets in 5, Phillies over D-Backs in 5

MLB 2008 Predictions

Hey hey hey.. Don't start with the bluejay bashing talking about if we are lucky we will win 80 games cause we play boston and new york 19 times. We've played them 19 times the last 2 years and have finished better than 80 wins and that's with a rash of injuries. Don't you know we've practically owned boston since 2004. Look up the figures bro. Head to head we tee off on the bosox. And if and I do say if we are healthy. Yes we will win 90 games and make it a 3 team race. Cause boston doesn't have all that much pitching either. So watch what u say buddy. Unless u know the facts. Jays all the way.

Thank you marino4530 that is exactly what I was trying to do, but I don't care about people sharing their opinions about that as much as Dragon25 being a complete moron.

Anyways thanks for getting the point.

Dragon25 - Dude....Ritalin.  You're making the rest of us look bad.

A) - "Figure skaters?"  I think the softest hockey player would kick your a$$ unmercifully.  Hockey may not be the most popular sport, but you have to respect those guys.  They take a beating and are easily the most grounded of all the athletes.

B) - You're making fun of this guys math and your quote is "Baseball 1, Basketball 1, Football 0, Hockey who cares."  Man, that is intelligent.

My first thought after reading these predictions was the same as everyone else apparently, that the wins were way too high, but Jesus people...  i think he or she was just trying to take a quick stab at what they thought was going to happen this year.  I don't think it really warranted precise calculations and a 2 page synopsis on each teams bullpen.  Did you expect the unbalanced schedule to be taken into account as well?

MLB 2008 Predictions

Wow even a dumb Canadian, Baseball 1, Basketball 1, Football 0, Hockey who cares. Canada sucks in the sports they have, Sorry it is the truth, I don't call violent thugs figure skating a sport. I am not an arrogant American, I am a real American, I can give a damn about other countries, when our country should worry about here first, then everywhere else. I just can't stand people who's thought process was dug up from underneath some rock in the middle of a frozen A$$ country. I don't know you but, your predictions are like speaking to kid who graduated 5th grade and decided that was all  the education he needed. You don't go fully in depth on every team, stating a few words without research and your numbers don't add up. Calculate this stuff, make an explanation, then form an opinion. And again when you want to post your useless blog STAY OFF MY TEAMS BOARD, ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU ARE A MORON!!!!!
