2010 MLB Predictions

First, two quick links for your viewing pleasure. The first is to a video of one of the best defensive plays I’ve seen in baseball, and it happened on opening day this year: Mark Buehrle’s gem. Second is especially for those who love to hate the Yankees and their capitalistic ways: Jeter, Posada, and Rivera set the record for most consecutive seasons played together (plus, the Yanks have 15 homegrown players on their opening day roster, nothing to sneeze at). Now that that’s out of the way, here are my predictions.

AL East:
1. New York Yankees
2. Boston Red Sox (Wild Card)
3. Tampa Bay Rays
4. Baltimore Orioles
5. Toronto Blue Jays

AL Central:
1. Chicago White Sox
2. Detroit Tigers
3. Minnesota Twins
4. Kansas City Royals
5. Cleveland Indians

AL West:

4. Oakland A’s

  1. I take umbrage with your putting the cubs beneath the brewers. We might well lose to the cardinals, but we will certainly not lose to the brewers!
