Sidewinder's predict the final standings: MLB Season
East: (this right here is the hardest division for me to choose)
Reasons Why: The Yankees always find a way to come back and win. They will eventually be fully healthy (minus ARod). I have not seen an improvement for Boston, Toronto obviously improved, Tampa Bay is Tampa, but I don't see them getting 90 wins this year. Baltimore I am not sold on AT ALL this year, sorry Baltimore fans.
Reasons Why: Division sucks, that's why. Detroit will run away with it. The Sox will be about 5 over 500 at the end of the year. KC will be a surprise team this year, but I still don't think they will be above .500 (guess you can't consider them a surprise team then?)
Reason Why: I'd hate to bring another sport into this, but I believe the Angels are going to be like the Heat...give them one year to fully get used to each other and gel and then they just skyrocket. This is what I believe the Angels will do this year. (I was tempted to leave Houston off this whole standings list BTW...they're just that bad)
East: (2nd hardest right here)
Reasons Why: I see Washington getting 100+ wins this year, they're young, have the veterans where they need them, they're hungry. Atlanta will give them a run, but they won't be able to keep up. Philly is just too damn old, sorry philly fans.
Reasons Why: It just always seems like St. Louis is just fine with a wild card always, or at least for the last few years. Here comes in my cheap shot for the Cubs since I'm a Sox fan...the Astros are gone to keep them out of last place.
Reasons Why: Dodgers went all Yankees on us and bought players, Giants are still the Giants, If Timmy boy figures out how to pitch again then maybe I'd have the Giants in 1st.
I expect some criticism from people about what I just did (people not agreeing, people calling me an idiot). I did this for fun, but also did it, because this is obviously what I think will happen, I love baseball, it's like the main thing I focus on outside of getting my Bachelor's in college. So tell me what you all think, what changes you would make. Thank you.
