Yanks in 2010? World Series or SEE YA!

Friday, April 2, 2010

So we've gone through our predictions for the individual Yankees in 2010. Now we're going to take a look at how the standings will look at the end of the season.


National League
East:
Phillies 97-65
Braves 89-73
Mets 80-82
Marlins 79-83
Nationals 69-93

Central:
Cardinals 94-68
Cubs 87-75
Brewers 84-78
Astros 80-82
Pirates 66-96

West:
Dodgers 95-67
Giants (WILD CARD) 91-71
Rockies 90-72
Diamondbacks 81-81
Padres 70-92

AMERICAN LEAGUE
EAST:
Yankees 101-61
Red Sox(Wild Card) 95-67
Orioles 86-76
Rays 85-77
Blue Jays 69-93

CENTRAL:
Twins 93-89
Tigers 91-71
White Sox 85-77
Indians 76-86
Royals 67-95

WEST:
Mariners 94-88
Rangers 88-74
Angels 82-80
A's 74-88

PLAYOFFS:
FIRST ROUND
Yankees over Twins (I'm thinking they sweep and clinch it on the frozen tundra of Target Field)
Red Sox over Mariners (Unless Papelbon blows it, again)
Phillies over Giants (Though Lincecum and Cain in a short series will be tough)
Dodgers over Cards (Setting up a rematch in the NLCS)

LEAGUE CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES
Yankess over Red Sox (In 7 games, thus taking another 10 years off my life)
Dodgers over Phillies (In 6, because if it goes 7, I think Roy Halladay wills the Phillies to victory)

WORLD SERIES
Yankees over Dodgers
The Yanks will take home their 28th World Series title in 6 games, and Alex Rodriguez will take home MVP honors after channeling his inner Reggie Jackson and bombing 3 home runs in the clinching game. You heard it here first.

What do you think? Leave a comment and vote in the poll on the right.

The Orioles ahead of the Rays?? I like the O's as a surprise team this year, but I don't think they'll last.

That was one prediction that I disagreed on with Jim. But it was his post so we kept it. I do like the Orioles chances of finishing as high as third with their young, talented lineup, but I think the pitching is still another year away from them really making big moves in the AL East.

Also, if the Rays dig themselves a hole in the first half of the season and cannot recover, Carl Crawford and Carlos Pena may be traded which could open a chance for the O's to finish third. The potential is there, but I kind of agree with you that they may not last.

John touched on the reason why I put the Orioles ahead of the Rays. I could see Crawford and Pena being traded mid-season so the team can save some money, as they did in August last year with Scott Kazmir. Plus, closer J.P. Howell will most likely be out until mid-May, making it tough to get off to a good start.

And I see guys like Adam Jones, Nick Markakis, and Matt Wieters having a pretty big impact. Throw in guys like Garret Atkins and Miguel Tejada, and I really like there lineup. And with Kevin Millwood providing some veteran leadership on the top of the rotation, they can win some games.
