I say it's a bit late to start this thread, but I'm gonna start it anyway. This is obviously about the 2013 MLB season that started on March 30th, 2013. You could post anything related to MLB here, from perfect games to postseason predictions.
Imma start with my postseason predictions. These are the teams who I predict are gonna win their divisions.
West - Angels
Central - Tigers
East - Blue Jays
Wild Card - Rays, Athletics
The AL West is one tough division as always, but with the Angels buffed up and Texas having lost power, I think the Angels are gonna win their division, despite their current record of 3-8. I would also predict the A's to be an underdog and be close, but I think it goes to Anaheim. The AL Central isn't really a strong division, but I expect the 2012 AL Champion Tigers to win their division. Meanwhile, the AL East is another tough division. I wouldn't expect much from the injured, aging Yankees. The other teams would stick around, but I would expect the most action from Toronto. With some great pitching in R.A. Dickey and some great offense, I'm sure they'd win their division. And my guess is that the Rays & the A's make it as Wild Card.
West - Giants
Central - Cardinals
East - Nationals
Wild Card - Braves, Reds
Ahh, the National League, my league. Let's start with my home division, the NL West. Being a Giants fan, I'd obviously want my Giants to win this division. Contrary to popular belief, I don't believe the Dodgers are gonna win it (not just 'cause I'm a Giants fan). I believe the "Yankees of the West" are gonna crumble after the All-Star game and won't even make it to the playoffs. The Dbacks and the Rockies are pretty good this year, so this is gonna be one interesting race... For the NL Central, I believe the Cardinals are gonna win their division. The Reds won't be far behind and hopefully the Cubs and Pirates have better success this year. And finally, the NL East. I think the biggest contenders here are the Braves and the Nationals, but at the end, I think the Nationals would win over the Braves and claim their division.
For the actual postseason, I strongly believe in my Angels/Nationals World Series. With the Angels offense (currently not active) and the whole Nationals team, this would be a great series to watch. Plus, it'd be nice to see an intensified Trout/Harper rivalry. I wouldn't let down my Giants by putting them in the NLCS against the Nats, while I would predict the ALCS to be Toronto/Anaheim.
So I hope y'all enjoy this post and feel free to comment on my predictions as well as add your own. I'd look forward to all the baseball posts between now and October!
