AL EAST: 1. Boston- The Red Sox win it again in a closer race than last year 2. Tampa Bay- The Rays contend yet again and get a wild card spot 3. New York- The pitching and weak infield will ultimately be the demise of this team 4. Baltimore- They manage to hang around .500 all year, the magic never appears 5. Toronto- Kept most of the team together, shouldn't do anything AL CENTRAL: 1. Detroit- I'm one of the few that thinks this team is better than last year and can potentially push 100 wins 2. Kansas City- Royals show they can do some damage and fall show just short of a wild card berth 3. Cleveland- They'll look to be in the division race and fall off the face of the earth again 4. Minnesota- Another mediocre season by Twin standards but show positive signs of rebuilding 5. Chicago- This team is a mess... I'm hoping Avisail Garcia can become something AL WEST: 1. Texas- Homers fly out of Arlington as the Rangers push 100 wins 2. Oakland- They win about 90 games yet again with the same core of players 3. Anaheim- Barely over .500 again and they consider tearing it all dowm 4. Seattle- They trend upwards, but not only Cano can push them over the hump 5. Houston- Once again will be the worst team in baseball NL EAST: 1. Washington- The Nationals rebound from last season and live up to last year's potential 2. Atlanta- Braves contend all year and fall just short of what will be a deep NL wild card race 3. New York- The Mets manage to finish around .500 4. Miami- They'll have a win total in the upper 70s and appear to be trending upwards 5. Philadelphia- Old age will lose quite a few games for the Phillies NL CENTRAL: 1. St. Louis- They finish the season as NL favorites yet again 2. Pittsburgh- 2013 was no fluke as they clinch another wild card 3. Cincinnati- Cannot keep up with St. Louis and Pittsburgh, but also fall short of second wild card 4. Chicago- Hey! Fourth place! 5. Milwaukee- Nothing clicks for the Brew Crew in 2014 NL WEST: 1. Los Angeles- Very talented team and as expected win the West 2. Arizona- D-Backs have a Baltimore-esque season and grab the second wild card 3. San Francisco- Appear to contend in the first half of the season, then fall off 4. San Diego- A decent Padre team pushes a .500 record 5. Colorado- The pitching alone could cost this team 85 wins AL WC: Tampa Bay over Oakland- The A's lose yet another elimination game NL WC: Arizona over Atlanta- D-Backs continue to shock the world ALDS: Detroit over Boston (3-1)- Tigers pitching repeats last year, but offense shows up as well Texas over Tampa Bay (3-0)- Rangers' offense is too much for Tampa staff NLDS: Los Angeles over Washington (3-2)- A back and forth series falls LA's way Arizona over St. Louis (3-2)- Arizona upends the Cardinals thanks to a couple late inning rallies ALCS: Detroit over Texas (4-3)- The most entertaining series of the postseason ends as former Ranger, Joe Nathan, strikes out former Tiger, Prince Fielder to clinch a World Series berth for Detroit NLCS: Arizona over Los Angeles (4-3)- The cinderella story continues as the D-Backs resiliency is too much for LA WS: Detroit over Arizona (4-2)- The magic runs out as the Tigers are too much to handle for the young Arizona team Maybe one of these years I pick the Tigers they may actually win it haha. Seriously though, I think the team is built for much more success in 2014 than in years past. Despite trading Fister, they still boast the best rotation in the AL with three CY Young contenders. They upgraded defensively at every single infield position, and defense is no longer a weakness. The offense relied on power surges last season while playing in one of the larger ballparks. If Jackson can rebound, Iglesias improves, and Kinsler and Davis do their thing, they can be pretty decent base-running wise. Veterans Martinez and Torii Hunter can very capable producing for at least another season. Not to mention, there's this jolly first baseman by the name of Miguel Cabrera as well.
