Orioles in 3rd? Hilarious.

All I'll say is the wild card won't come from the East... with the Jays/Sox/Yanks facing each other so many times the runner-up will not be able to beat the runner up in the Central.

NL East

1.) Mets 93-69

2.) Philles 89-73 (wins wild card)

3.) Braves 86-76

4.) Nationals 80-82

5.) Marlins 61-101

NL Central

1.) Astros 91-71

2.) Cardinals 88-74

3.) Cubs 84-78

4.) Brewers 82-80

5.) Pirates 78-84

6.) Reds 71-91

NL West

1.) Dodgers 92-70

2.) Giants 87-75

3.) Padres 83-79

4.) Diamondbacks 77-85

5.) Rockies 65-97

I picked the Phils to win the wildcard over the Cards and Giants because i feel they have the better lineup and good enough top of the rotation starters. The Giants' age worry me and the Cardinals have lost parts over the last few years and are a Rolen or Edmonds injury away from a very weak lineup. Everything will have to fall perfectly into place for the Phils to win the WC, but I have a very good feeling.

AL West

1.) Yankees 96-66

2.) Red Sox 88-74

3.) Blue Jays 86-76

4.) Devil Rays 73-89

5.) Orioles 71-91

AL Central

1.) White Sox 97-65

2.) Indians 93-69 (wins wild card)

3.) Twins 83-79

4.) Tigers 78-84

5.) Royals 67-95

AL West

1.) Athletics 87-75

2.) Angels 86-76

3.) Rangers 83-79

4.) Mariners 77-85

NLDS

Astros d. Mets 3-2

Dodgers d. Phillies 3-2

NLCS

Astros d. Dodgers 4-2 (with or without Clemens the Astros have experienced, solid and playoff proven starters and a lineup that is good enough to win)

ALDS

White Sox d. A's 3-1

Yankees d. Indians 3-2

ALCS

White Sox d. Yankees 4-3

World Series

White Sox d. Astros 4-1

repeat World Series, repeat champion

Screw all this winning :censored:, let's have some fun.

I predict that the Baltimore Orioles, Pittsburgh Pirates, Colorado Rockies, Kansas City Royals, Florida Marlins, Seattle Mariners will all be last place teams. Florida will lose in the 107-112 range and earn the first pick in the 2007 Amatuer Draft.

I predict Barry Bonds' knee will allow him to play 90-100 games and hit 25-30 home runs.

I predict the will Atlanta Braves finish 2nd in their division.

I predict at least 2 guys will hit 50 home runs.

I predict Roger Clemens will pitch for the Houston Astros again this year.

I predict the first manager to be fired will be Clint Hurdle (and it will be before the All-Star Break). Don't sleep on Frank Robinson being canned either, especially if the Nationals get a new owner. Especially if Lou Pinella has any interest.

Maybe an out there type of prediction but anything could happen

* I honestly didn't know that teams in teams in the same division couldn't play against each other in the divisional series*

They are so out there that it's impossible. Teams from the same division can't face each other in the Divisional round of the playoffs.
