2012 Predictions

2 down,2428 to go.......Number of regular season games that are supposed to be played.Two have finished playing in Japan,now the North American games begin soon.

Every year i try and predict the outcome of the season,this year will be very scary as i will be able to look back at in print and say how waaaaayyyyyy off i was.

National League
1. Phillies
2. Nationals
3. Braves
4. Marlins
5. Mets

I do think even with all of the injuries the Phils have,they will overcome them because of their pitching staff.
Braves and Nats will battle for second and Nats will win it in late Sept.

1. Cardinals
2. Pirates
3. Reds
4. Brewers
5. Cubs
6. Astros

I'll start by saying its alot easier to predict the bottom as both the Cubs and Astros will really stink this year(it pains me as i grew up listening to Milo call the games on the radio).
Even with Pujols gone,i dont see the Reds,Pirates or Brewers having enough to overtake them.

1. Rockies
2. D-Backs
3. Giants
4. Dodgers
5. Padres

Toss up for me,as i find myself surprised about last years D-Backs team and wonder if they have it for 2 years in a row,then i'll be drinking the kool-aid.Rockies look good so far in spring and i actually like the look of this team.

American League
1. Rays
2. Redsox
3. Bluejays
4. Yankees
5. Orioles

Hey,i could dream right.....if you dont know,i hate the Yanks and i love 29 teams and hate 1.Truth be told,they look good this year,but i will cheer my a$$ off for the other 3 and hope Yanks dont make the playoffs.,However,I do see the Rays winning the division.

1. Tigers
2. Royals
3. Indians
4. Twins
5. Whitesox

Wow,where do i start,easy division for the Tigers,most likely by at least 15 games.I like the Royals to compete for the Wild Card.Twins and Whitesox will not be too fun to watch this year.

1. Rangers
2. Angels
3. A's
4. Mariners
5. Astros(early 2013 prediction)

I think the Angels have too much ground to make up to catch the Rangers.

Wild Card Teams
Nats,Braves and Pirates will battle till the end and Pirates will be looking at the game on TV.

Redsox,Jays and Royals will battle it out and the Yankees will be the spoilers and Bluejays will go home.

I'll make predictions after the season for the playoffs.But if everything goes well,i see the Rays and Phillies in the World Series.

Thats mine,whats yours??


  1. I like is my prediction:

  2. Unfortunately, I completely agree with your assessment of the Twins.
