MLB 2012 Season predictions

Since there hasn't been a predictions thread in a few seasons I thought I'd start one up. Here are mine...

NL East: Phillies
NL Central: Cardinals
NL West: Giants
Wildcards: Reds and Nationals

Hard to predict who will have the best record in the NL but I'm going to go with the Phillies and Giants in the NL Championship series with the Phillies winning.

AL East: Yankees
AL Central: Tigers
AL West: Angels
Wildcards: Rangers and Rays

I think the Tigers will have the best record in the AL and predict they will play the Angels in the AL Championship series with the Tigers winning.

So that gives a world series of Phillies v Tigers. Pushed to choose, I plump with the Tigers. I must see what price I can get for them in the bookies

Any other offers?

I was 1 out of 6 last season with my division predictions so expect top quality picks you can put your house on again this season....!!!!!

It's still a bit early in Spring Training to commit to picks so I'll make mine in a couple of weeks but I'd say it'll be something along the lines of Yankees, Tigers, Angels, Phillies, Cardinals, Giants with Braves, Brewers, Rays and Rangers as the WCs.

NL East: Phillies
NL Central: Cardinals
NL West: Giants
Wildcards: Marlins & Brewers

Crap-shoot after that, will go with the Brewers to make a run all the way to the World Series.

AL East: Rays
AL Central: Tigers
AL West: Rangers
Wildcards: Angels and Red Sox

Sox for the wildcard is a heart-over-head prediction, see the Rangers winning it all this year.

Just over half a day until the season opener
Got my snacks and drinks and whatnot and ready to roll

The change in time zone really throwing me off though as I'm used to staying up until 3am to watch most Mariners games

My predictions:

AL East - Yankees, Red Sox (WC), Rays, Jays, Orioles
AL Central - Tigers, Indians (WC), Royals, White Sox, Twins
AL West - Rangers, Mariners , Angels, A's

NL East - Marlins, Phillies (WC), Braves, Nats, Mets
NL Central - Brewers, Reds (WC), Cards, Cubs, Pirates, Astros
NL West - Rockies, Giants, Dodgers, D'Backs, Padres

WS - Tigers over Phillies

As the season starts tonight I suppose I'll submit my official picks. I'm going with the favourites in most cases which is the easy option I know so I actually hope I repeat last year's performance and get most of them wrong.

AL East - Yankees
AL Central - Tigers
AL West - Rangers
AL WC - Rays, Angels

NL East - Phillies
NL Central - Cardinals
NL West - Giants
NL WC - Reds, Marlins

And I'll say Phillies over the Rays in the World Series just like '08.

Wildcard Toronto! I hope so it would be nice to see Toronto back in the playoffs. They have not been in almost 20 years. The world series does not sound right when it is only American teams in it. I'm rooting for the one Canadian team.
