After watching ESPN MLB for the past three hours make predictions for just about everything including what color under ware Barry Larkin is wearing, I decided what the hell, why not make it 1 million and 1 predictions. One hour ESPN says the Blue Jays are a front runner to win the East, next hour they say they will struggle building chemistry like in Miami. ESPN should be called FFSN (Flip Flop Sports Network).
World Series: Atlanta Braves
AL Champs: Detroit Tigers
NL playoff teams: St. Louis Cardinals
AL playoff teams: LA Angels
Tampa Bay Rays
Toronto Blue Jays
Bottom two teams in AL and NL
Pretty much same powerhouses I feel from 2012 with Toronto and Dodgers moving into the playoffs. Detroit I feel has the strongest shot again making it to the World Series, but I feel that the Braves have a very good all around pitching and hitting team. They want revenge from the Wildcard 2012 Infield Fly Rule game vs. the Cardinals, and the 2011 meltdown. The bottom teams haven't done enough to move out of the gutter yet, though I do expect the Rockies to be more in the middle of the pack, and still a few years from a playoff contender. PLAY BALL!
