Quebecois Posted March 29, 2007 Share Posted March 29, 2007 Ill start off with my playoff predictions: Al East: New York Yankees (might get off to a slow start, but when Wang comes back they have the best top 3 starters in the division and probably the best lineup top to bottom.) AL Central: Chicago White Sox (I think their rotation can be better than last year and their 3-4-5 are deadly, Pod and Erstad need to get on base though and both of them had terrible OBPs last year so the Indians, Tigers or even Twins could surprise) AL West: Anaheim Angels (I don't see how this race is close, although the As are counted out every year and have a habit of proving people wrong) AL Wildcard: Toronto Blue Jays (maybe a homer pick, but the Jays have an incredible lineup 1-6, and as long as Rios comes back after a season derailed by injury and Thomas stays healthy, they will have a decent shot at putting up the most runs in the AL. Many point to a weak rotation, but i think they have a lot of depth and that if one of their 3-5 guys struggles they have a bunch of pitchers capable of stepping in (Janssen and Towers have had particularly good springs.) The key will be the health of both Halladay and Burnett as the 1-2. NL East: New York Mets (really no question here, great all-around lineup will offset a weak rotation) NL Central: St. Louis Cardinals (the Cubs are a tempting pick, but ill save them for later) NL West: Los Angeles Dodgers (winners by default, although i do think Zito will dominate the NL as they aren't used to his curve, still not enough to get the Giants in though) NL Wildcard: Chicago Cubs (lots of power, rotation isnt bad by NL standards) I got my Jays Season Pass ready to go, 81 games for 100 bucks (price went up this year!). Gotta be the best deal in pro sports though... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
