Set in Stone MLB predictions

April 13, 2009 |

 I said I would put myself out there, and here I am. My fearless 2009 MLB predictions. Just days into the season I have seen the future and I though I might just share it with the WNST blog readers.

Feel free to tell me just how outrageously stupid I am.

AL                        East                                    Central                               West  

1.                     Boston                                 Minnesota                      Oakland  

2.                   NY Yankees * (WC)          Chicago WS                    LA Angels

3.                   Tampa Bay                          Cleveland                          Texas

4.                     Baltimore                            Kansas City                     Seattle

5.                   Toronto                                 Detroit


NL                   East                                        Central                                West

1.                   NY Mets                                   Houston                            LA Dodgers

2.                 Philadelphia*(WC)            Chicago Cubs                      San Francisco

3.                 Florida                                   Cincinnati                              Arizona

4.               Atlanta                                       St. Louis                               Colorado

5.               Washington                             Milwaukee                             San Diego

6.                                                                   Pittsburgh

Playoffs–  Minn over NYY        Bos Over Oak

                     LAD over Philly       NYM over  Hou

ALCS     Bos  4 games to 2  over Minn

NLCS      NY Mets  4 games to 3   over LAD

I see a rematch 23 years later between the Mets and Red Sox and although I feel that Boston has the better overall roster, I see the Mets under the cool leadership of Jerry Manuel exorcising the ghosts of the past couple of Septembers and bringing home the title. Much to the chagrin of the Bombers across town.

World Series     NY Mets  4 games to 2 over Boston


AL MVP-  Evan Longoria, TB                   NL MVP-  Lance Berkman, Hou

AL Cy Young- Josh Beckett, Bos          NL Cy Young- Johan Santan, NYM

AL Manager- Bob Geren, Oak                 NL Manager- Cecil Cooper, Hou

AL ROY- Elvis Andrus, Tex                    NL ROY-  Cameron Maybin, Fla

All right, there’s my thoughts. What’s yours?
