2015 MLB Predictions

MLB_OpeningDay_TileI am one of the worst when it comes to predictions so don’t put any stock in what you read below, but it’s tradition to make predictions on Opening Day.

The Padres have made a ton of moves and you have to wonder if the moves will lead them to the playoffs or if it will be a total bust. It’s hard to believe they miss the playoffs with the roster they have put together, but it’s a long season and a lot of things have to go their way.

Last year the Royals made a run that many didn’t think was possible and they lost the World Series to the Giants. Can either team get back into the playoffs? It’s going to be tough. 

Here are my predictions of each division, the playoffs, World Series and awards.

AL East
1. Red Sox
2. Orioles
3. Yankees
4. Blue Jays
5. Rays

AL Central
1. Indians
2. Royals*
3. Tigers
4. White Sox
5. Twins

AL West
1. Mariners
2. Angels*
3. A’s
4. Astros
5. Rangers

NL East
1. Nationals
2. Marlins
3. Mets
4. Braves
5. Phillies

NL Central
1. Cardinals
2. Pirates*
3. Cubs
4. Brewers
5. Reds

NL West
1. Padres
2. Dodgers*
3. Giants
4. Rockies
5. D-backs

* – Wildcard team

AL Wildcard: Angels over Royals

ALDS: Mariners over Angels, Red Sox over Indians

ALCS: Mariners over Red Sox

NL Wildcard: Dodgers over Pirates

NLDS: Nationals over Dodgers, Cardinals over Padres

NLCS: Nationals over Cardinals

Awards:

At the end of the season I’ll revisit this to find out where I was way off, where I was close and I will gloat if I was right about anything.

It’s baseball season, friends!

Happy Opening Day!
