Baseball Predictions, 2013

Posted: March 31, 2013 in sports, Uncategorized

OK, the season starts tonight with a game between the Texas Rangers and the Houston Astros. No, it’s not inter-league on opening day, the ‘Stros have moved to the American league. This move balances (as far a numbers, anyway) the leagues giving each league three divisions and each division five teams. I guess that makes sense, but I don’t know why Milwaukee, which USE TO BE in the AL couldn’t move back instead of Tejas having two AL teams, but then I’m not the commissioner.
Anyhow, I wanted to get my picks on record before the season starts, so here we go:
American League
1. AL East–Seems like everyone is picking the Blue Jays, but if you know me at all you know I’m a Yankees fan. I can’t pick against the bombers, so I’m saying Yankees win the east.
2. AL Central–Got to go with the Tigers and Verlander.
3. AL West–I missed last year by picking the Angels, but I’m going with them again.
4. AL Wild Cards — Baltimore O’s and Tampa Rays.
Pennant goes to the Tigers (but I’m pulling for NY)
National League
1. NL East — Got to go with the Washington Nationals.
2. NL Central — Cincy Reds
3. NL West — LA Dodgers (go Don Mattingly!)
4. NL Wild Cards — Atlanta Braves and SF Giants
Pennant goes to the Nationals
I’m picking the Nationals to win it all. Series in 6 games.

OK, there’s my picks. Time will tell.
