MLB Predictions

 | September 16, 2008 11:05 AM

I came up with these predictions after the All-Star break but I did not write them down until now.

AL East – Tampa Bay Rays
AL Central – Chicago White Sox
AL West – LA Angels
AL Wild Card – Boston Red Sox

NL East – Philadelphia Phillies
NL Central – Chicago Cubs
NL West – Arizona Diamondbacks
NL Wild Card – Milwaukee Brewers

Compared to my previous predictions, they have not changed too much.  The AL Central is the one I really got wrong and I was wrong about the Rockies.  I am kind of proud how I predicted the Rays could win the wild card.

With less than two weeks left in the season it looks like this will be the final outcome.  ESPN’s Hunt for October seems to agree with this prediction.

AL East – Boston Red Sox
AL Central – Chicago White Sox
AL West – LA Angels
AL Wild Card – Tampa Bay Rays

NL East – Philadelphia Phillies
NL Central – Chicago Cubs
NL West – Los Angeles Dodger
NL Wild Card – New York Mets

The only question is who will win the NL East and who will win the wild card.  It is sad that the Milwaukee Brewers won’t make it, especially since they will lose their two best pitchers in the offseason, Sabathia and Sheets.  But in the end, it’s just hard for small market teams to compete.

AL division playoffs:

Anaheim beats Tampa Bay
Boston beats Chicago

ALCS:

Boston beats Anaheim (could go the other way, depends on Boston’s health)

NL division playoffs:

LA beats Philadelphia (not sure about this)
Chicago beats New York

NLCS:

Chicago beats LA

World Series:

Boston beats Chicago

Please, anyone but Boston!  I don’t want Chicago to win either.  Go Tampa Bay!

[…] only two weeks left in the season I could still only get 5 out of 8 right in my predictions.  In fact my predictions at the All-Star break were better, I got 7 out of 8 […]
