2011 Predictions

With 2 days remaining until the open of the 2011 season, it's time for my annual predictions post.

Last year didn't exactly show me to be a master prognosticator (AJ winning Cy Young? Ugh!), but this year I have my Nostradamus hat on and will undoubtedly fare much better!

AL East-

1. Red Sox
2. Yanks
3. Rays
4. O's
5. Blue Jays

While it is true the Sox picked up 2 very good players this off season, they also lost 2 substantial pieces from last year's team. Replacing Beltre with Gonzalez and Vmart with Crawford may or may not be a push, the Sox still have a better rotation than the Yanks and I think it will carry them to a very close win of the AL East crown.

AL Central-

1. Twins
2. Tigers
3. White Sox
4. Cleveland
5. Kansas City

2011 may be the last year teams will be able to kick the Royals around...enjoy it while it lasts!

AL West

1. Oakland
2. Texas
3. LAA
4. Seattle

A solid, young staff and some nice additions make the A's the team to beat out west

NL East-

1. Phillies
2. Braves
3. Marlins
4. Nationals
5. Muts

The turmoil continues in Queens where Reyes is traded mid-season and the team loses 100 games.

NL Central-

1. Brewers
2. Reds
3. Cards
4. Cubs
5. Pirates

Don't worry...by all accounts teams will be beating up on the Pirates for years to come!

NL West-

1. Giants
2. Rockies
3. Dodgers
4. Padres
5. DBacks

AL Wild Card - Yanks
NL Wild Card - Braves

AL
Yanks over Twins
Sox over A's
ALCS - Yanks over Sox

NL
Phillies over Giants
Brewers over Braves
NLCS - Phillies over Brewers

WS - Yanks over Phillies

AL MVP - Alex Rodriguez
NL MVP- Troy Tulowitzki
AL Cy Young - Justin Verlander
NL Cy Young - Josh Johnson
