My season predictions



I don't normally do too much stuff on mainstream baseball, but I will today. Lar, from wezen-ball, has asked some of his fellow bloggers (hey, that's me) to do our predictions for the season. I wasn't going to do it myself, but I decided that since I was asked, I would. Should be entertaining. I'll get back with you on the 1st of November and we'll see how I did.





AL East...............W.....L..............................NL East...............W.....L

Tampa Bay........95....67............................ New York........... 93.....69
Boston............... 92... 70............................ Philadelphia.........91.... 71
New York......... 88... 74............................ Atlanta................. 86.... 76
Baltimore......... 75....87............................. Florida................. 78.... 84
Toronto............ 73... 89............................. Washington........ 63... 99


AL Central................................................. NL Central

Minnesota........90... 72........................... St Louis..................92.... 70
Chicago............ 88....74........................... Chicago.................. 90.... 72
Cleveland........ 84... 78........................... Milwaukee............. 85.... 77
Kansas City..... 71... 91........................... Houston................. 82.....80
Detroit............. 63... 99.......................... Cincinnati............... 74.... 88
................................................................. Pittsburgh.............. 66.... 96


AL West...................................................NL West..........

California.......92... 70.............................Los Angeles............ 85....77
Texas............ 81... 81.............................Arizona.................... 83... 79
Oakland........ 75... 87.............................Colorado...................80... 82
Seattle..........67... 95.............................San Diego................. 76.... 86
................................................................San Francisco.......... 72.... 90




Cy Young......Roy Halladay..................Cy Young........Chris Carpenter
MVP..............Carl Crawford.................MVP................Albert
ROY..............Brett Gardner.................ROY.................Someone from the Giants



ALDS........................................NLDS

Chicago.....................................New York
vs..............................................vs
Tampa Bay..............................Los Angeles

Minnesota................................Philadelphia
vs..............................................vs
Boston......................................St Louis


ALCS........................................NLCS

Tampa Bay.............................New York
vs.............................................vs
Boston.....................................St Louis


World Series

Tampa Bay...............vs.........St Louis

St Louis wins in 7



Those are my picks. Anyone who wants to send me their picks is more than welcome to do so. Exactly as I've done. To make it a little interesting, we're going to have a little contest. The way I see it, there are 21 choices:

6.....division winners
2.....wild cards
2.....Cy Youngs
2.....MVP's
2.....RoY's
4.....participants in the LCS's
2.....participatns in the World Series
1.....World Series winner

The tiebreaker will be how many homeruns Albert will hit this year (46).

The second tiebreaker will be how many losses the Royals will have this year (91).

The prize for this contest will be simple. The high score, and anyone who beats my predictions, will get to hi-jack my blog for a day and do any baseball-related post (up to 3) on any subject they want.

The second part of it is, if you have your own blog and choose to participate, and I beat you, I get to do 3 posts on your blog.

Sounds pretty simple. Who will accept the challenge?

If you're a blogger who comes here, but didn't get an e-mail from, and would like to participate, please let me know.
