    Chicago Whitesox will win the AL Pennant. I want to say they'll win the WS, but I think they may lose to either Washington or LA (whoever wins).

    Im also going to say that Jose Abreu takes home the AL MVP (Giancarlo Stanton for NL).

    This seems like a bad prediction.

    The AL has about ten to twenty guys that will take that mvp over Joe Abreu imo.

    Like I said, it is bold (also biased). But, I think their lineup is the best they've had in a while...if Ventura can command the team, I think its going down.
    I guess this is somewhat contingent on my first prediction. If the Sox shit the bed, then theres a good chance he will be looked over. If they make the playoffs, he's in. Either way, I think 10-20 people passing him over is drastically underrating the guy.

    Verlander will throw a no hitter and Price will win the Cy Young.

    Pre-season predictions are never worth shit anyway. A couple of injuries, and a contender is fucked. Boston and Washington look like the two best teams right now, but I bet neither team ends up in the World Series.

    Yea, obviously injuries have to be taken into consideration. Im just going on starting lineups/rotations.

    I think Cleveland's gonna be a really fun team to watch this year. Lots of potential, but it's tenuous.

    Red Sox will score a ton of runs and give up even more

    It's hard not to give them the East, though.

    Toronto...

    I don't see that staff holding up. If they trade for an arm, different story

    I think we're better than NY and Baltimore this year, but I agree with you. Marcus Strohman getting hurt and missing this season was a dirty blow. I don't think Aaron Sanchez is ready to start in the bigs.

    It's one of those "Wait. How the fuck did this happen?" seasons for the Yanks. I have them hovering around the middle of the division and not even making the playoffs.

    I predict Cleveland will be neck and neck with the White Sox, and wind up being First Wild Card.

    I wouldnt be shocked if Detroit gets WC2, for an AL Central trifecta.
