2010 MLB Predictions

I'm a baseball geek, what else can I say. This is how the MLB will pan out this year:

NL East
1. ) Phillies
2.) Braves
3.) Mets
4.) Marlins
5.) Nationals

NL Central
1.) Cardinals
2.) Reds *
3.) Brewers
4.) Cubs
5.) Pirates
6.) Astros

NL West
1.) Giants
2.) Rockies
3.) Dodgers
4.) Diamondbacks
5.) Padres

AL East
1.) Yankees
2.) Red Sox
3.) Rays
4.) Orioles
5.) Blue Jays

AL Central
1.) White Sox
2.) Twins *
3.) Tigers
4.) Royals
5.) Indians

AL West
1.) Angels
2.) Rangers
3.) Mariners
4.) A's

World Series: Yankees over Cardinals

NL MVP: Albert Pujols
NL Cy Young: Yovani Gallardo

AL MVP: Mark Teixeira
AL Cy Young: Josh Beckett

I think the Yankees made all of the right moves this offseason. They got younger with Granderson and Gardner. They improved their pitching by adding Vazquez and moving Hughes to the rotation. The Cardinals are going to be tough to beat. Wainwright and Carpenter are a really tough 1-2. Part of me thinks that Carpenter won't stay healthy, but I think they have enough depth to fill the gap short term. Nothing beats Pujols and Holliday in the lineup, thats what sold me. Plus Larussa and Duncan are still in the dugout, that never hurts.

I don't know if its my head or my heart picking the Reds to make the playoffs. I love the youth and the depth on this team. I love our infield and we have a lot of depth in our outfield. The starting pitching is key. Harang has to be better than 6-14. Arroyo has to be more consistent (no day games for him please!). Cueto and Bailey have to keep improving. There are a lot of ifs, but they could be really good.

What do you think?

Anyone else want to try?
