Predicted Standings

With the baseball season about to begin (finally!), the Beyond the Box Score crew assembled our predictions for how the 2011 standings would shake out. You can check those out here; mine are as follows:

AL East
BOS – NYY – TBR – BAL – TOR

NYY with the Wild Card and BAL/TOR extremely close – was tempted to put BAL 5th.

AL Central

MIN – CHI – DET – CLE – KCR

Top three teams not too far apart. Royals seem pretty terrible this year.

AL West

TEX – OAK – LAA – SEA

Small gap between TEX and OAK. Larger gaps from 2 to 3 and 3 to 4.

NL East

PHI – ATL – FLA – NYM – WAS

ATL should give PHI a good fight.

NL Central

CIN – MIL – STL – CHC – HOU – PIT

Top 3 – maybe even 4 – teams where tough to pick. Not confident at all there.

NL West

SFG – COL – LAD – SDP – ARI

COL has a good shot, and LAD to a lesser degree.

AL MVP: Adrian Gonzalez
NL MVP: Albert Pujols

AL Cy Young: Jon Lester
NL Cy Young: Roy Halladay

AL ROY: Jeremy Hellickson
NL ROY: Freddie Freeman
