My Playoff Predictions

AL East- It’s going to be very hard for Boston or Tampa to catch the Yankees. They are firing on all cylinders right now. They are clearly the best team in baseball, and I have a hard time believing they will blow this 6.5 game lead with 30 games to play… You need to give this one to the Yankees.

AL Central- I’m going to go out on a limb and say that the Twins are going to win the Central. They are only 3.5 behind the Tigers, and they have won 8 of their last 10, while the Tigers have won 5 of their last 10. The only issue is that they have no pitching at all. Bonser, Liariano, Slowey, and Perkins are all on the DL. As a matter of fact, the only starters on the depth chart are Scott Baker, Carl Pavano, and Nick Blackburn. The Tigers could very well win the division, simply because they have very solid pitching. Verlander and Jackson have pitched very well for the Tigers this year. Jarrod Washburn has pitched badly though. I’ll go with the Twins, just for fun.

AL West- Angels, no doubt. They have the second best record in baseball, and they will not give up their lead in the division. Definitely Angels.

Wildcard- I liked the Rangers a week ago, but this 4 game deficit is looking a little troublesome. The Red Sox have a very good offensive team, and the 1-2-3 punch of Beckett, Lester, and Buchholz is looking pretty good for them. I don’t think they’ll give up that lead. Good effort by the Rangers though…
