Final standings

Postby Ender » Sun Mar 25, 2012 1:06 am

Thought it would be fun to start a thread on what people think the final standings will be at the end of the year.

AL West

Angels
Rangers
A's
Mariners

The Rangers overproduced last year in a ton of areas and I think it was largely because the division was so weak, every team outside of Texas got better and I think they tread water at best if not got worse. The Angels win this division by 5+ games.

AL Central

Tigers
White Sox
Royals
Indians
Twins

Detroit wins this by default though they aren't one of the better teams in the AL. The Royals pitching fails them and Cleveland proves last years comeback victories were just a fluke. This Twins team looks hrorible.

AL East

Red Sox
Rays
Yankees
Blue Jays
Orioles

This is the toughest AL division to call. I don't like any pitcher on the Yankees except Sabathia, they are all set to fail imo. I'm not all that keen on the Red Sox pitching either.

AL Wild Card - I'll cop out and go with the Rays and Yankees with the Rangers being the obvious other choice. The other 8 teams have almost no chance to make the playoffs with the one dark horse being the Blue Jays.

NL West

Giants
Diamondbacks
Rockies
Dodgers
Padres

The middle ranks of this division are pretty murky and I can see the Giants or Diamondbacks win it. The Diamondbacks massively overproduced last year and were a .500 team at best so I expect some major regression but they also really improved the roster which should offset it.

NL Central

Brewers
Reds
Cardinals
Pirates
Astros
Cubs

This division has the toughest race with 3 real contenders and 3 of the worst teams in baseball. The Cardinals are the ultimate wild card team as they have so many huge injury risks so there is no clear way to decide where the end up, if they all stay healthy they take the division, if a few get hurt they could finish under .500. The Reds are the overrated team in the division since getting Latos isn't' enough to assume they improve by 10+ games.

NL East

Phillies
Braves
Marlins
Nationals
Mets

I don't buy the Nationals, sorry. It is a bad offensive club with a bad defense and a pitching staff that is good but full of injury concerns and a bullpen that isn't amazing after the top 2. This divison as a whole is a lot weaker than last year though so it isn't a clear cut race.

NL Wild Card - Diamondbacks, Reds. I think the East beats up on each other and the weak bottom of the central assures one if not two wild cards come from it.

I like it Izenhart, some very bold predictions in there but ones that at least make sense!

You guys are high having the Cardinals in 3rd. They'll be significantly better than last year's team, even without Pujols. Craig, Beltran, and Furcal more than make up for what they lost, not to mention a much improved defense and bullpen.

It also wouldn't surprise me in the least bit if the Blue Jays and Nationals won their divisions, and i would only be mildly surprised if the Royals won their division. Verlander and Valverde can't keep getting lucky, and that defense will not hold up over the course of the season.

Is this insinuating that the Cubs will be relegated to AAA by the end of the season?? :-B
