2010 MLB Predictions: Better Late Than Never

It’s pretty obvious that the posts haven’t exactly been coming hot and heavy in the past month or so. Things have been very busy at work and there was a fair amount of travel in the mix as well, but rest assured I’m neither dead nor done writing.

I do want to make one thing clear, these predictions were compiled before the season started, I just never got around to posting them, so anyone who wants to get up in my grill for not giving the currently-surging Rays or Athletics enough love, my apologies.

With that in mind, here are my preseason early season predictions for how things are going to shake out in 2010.

NATIONAL LEAGUE

AMERICAN LEAGUE

NL EAST

Philadelphia Phillies
Atlanta Braves
Florida Marlins
Washington Nationals
New York Mets

AL EAST

New York Yankees
Boston Red Sox
Tampa Bay Rays
Toronto Blue Jays
Baltimore Orioles

NL CENTRAL

St. Louis Cardinals
Milwaukee Brewers
Chicago Cubs
Cincinnati Reds
Pittsburgh Pirates
Houston Astros

AL CENTRAL

Minnesota Twins
Detroit Tigers
Chicago White Sox
Cleveland Indians
Kansas City Royals

NL WEST

Colorado Rockies
San Francisco Giants
Los Angeles Dodgers
San Diego Padres
Arizona Diamondbacks

AL WEST

Los Angeles Angels
Seattle Mariners
Oakland Athletics
Texas Rangers

NLDS: Philadelphia over San Francisco (3-1)
NLDS: Colorado over St. Louis (3-2)

ALDS: Minnesota over Boston (3-2)
ALDS: New York over Los Angeles (3-0)

NLCS: Colorado over Philadelphia (4-3)
ALCS: Minnesota over New York (4-3)

WORLD SERIES: Minnesota over Colorado (4-2)

There you have it, folks…the Twins are going to top the Rockies in what will undoubtedly be the least-watched World Series of all-time. ESPN will ignore it entirely, choosing instead to focus on whether Tim Tebow’s new haircut implies he can handle the complexities of an NFL offense.

Feel free to head over to your nearest bookie and put some serious cash on these predictions.

    Dont you wish to change these given the early season changes? At least move the Oakland A’s up!

    • I thought about adjusting some of my rankings to reflect the early-goings of this season. In the end, however, I wanted to stick with my original gut feelings.

      I have a long-standing tradition of not taking the first month or so of the season too serious in regard to standings or stats, too small of a sample size. I think the A’s are good and the pitching has the potential to be top-notch, but any offense relying heavily on Eric Chavez, Kevin Kouzmanoff, and Rajai Davis figures to struggle plenty of the course of 162 games.
