Somebody's predicting the Tigers won't make the playoffs again. Keep predicting it and it will eventually come true
It's too early to count out the Cardinals and Tigers. The offseason hasn't happened yet and both teams have very good GMs. As it stands both teams have question marks, but both teams also have things going for them.
Tigers have good young pitching and some decent players returning on offense. Offense probably needs some tweaking before anything else. I have no clue who their first baseman will be.
As long as the Cardinals have Pujols, Carpenter, and Rolen, they have a chance in the always wide-open NL. Put some decent players around them and they will contend. That's been their story for the past 3 seasons.
Bottom line: the season just ended and the offseason has yet to play out. At this point anyone has just as good of a chance of predicting who makes the playoffs in 2020 as they do predicting it for next season.
