    Make Your 2012 Playoff Predictions

    We all have our own predictions, so why not get them on record before the season starts!
    (I know the Mariners just beat the A's, but I doubt either team is going to make it in anyone's playoff predictions)


    NL West: San Francisco Giants
    NL Central: Cincinnati Reds
    NL East: Philadelphia Phillies

    NL Wild Card: Miami Marlins
    NL Wild Card: St. Louis Cardinals


    AL West: Texas Rangers
    AL Central: Detroit Tigers
    AL East: Boston Red Sox

    AL Wild Card: New York Yankees
    AL Wild Card: Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim



    World Series: Red Sox over Reds in 5 games.

    Here goes:

    NL Divisions--Giants, Reds, Nats
    NL Wild Cards--Fish, Cards (for the record I hate 2nd wild card--just a move to ensure BoSox make playoffs)

    AL Divisions--Yanks, Tiggers, Angels
    AL Wild Cards--Rangers, D Rays

    NL CS Reds over Giants
    AL CS Angles over Yanks

    WS Angels over Reds in 6

    NL Central: Reds, Brewers, Cards, Pirates, Cubs, Astros
    NL West: Rockies, Giants, D-Backs, Dodgers, Padres

    AL
    East: Rays
    Central: Need game 165; Twins end up #1, Tigers #3
    West: Rangers

    AL Wild card #1: Angels; AL Wild Card #2: Yankees

    NL
    East: Phillies
    Central: reds
    West: Diamondbacks

    NL Wild Card #1: Marlins; NL Wild Card #2: Cardinals

    Angels beat Yankees, Marlins beat Cards

    ALDS/NLDS: Angels beat Rays, rangers beat the Twins; Diamondbacks beat Phillies, Marlins beat Reds

    ALCS/NLCS: Angels beat Rangers in 7, Diamondbacks beat Marlins in 6

    WS: Angels win in 7

    I don't think any of these teams are the "dream teams" that we had last year, but they are pretty good. I think the Twins win out over the tigers because the Twins have (some) semblance of an infield that can play defense, and their outfield isn't bad.

    i have the angels winning it because they have a solid team right now, but if the Abreu controversy grows in magnitude, their record might not survive it.

    Also, with how thin the pitching is for the Red Sox and the Yankees, and how weak the hitting is for the Rays, I think the AL East division will be up for grabs for the first time in a long while, instead of having the two expected teams, the BoSox and the Yankees, come out of that division seeming invincible.

    Like Clubber Lang said my prediction is "Pain." This is how I see the Twins season developing. Without question it will be painfull with this rotation and bullpen.

    I haven't paid much attention to the NL, but for the AL:

    AL East: Rays, Blue Jays (WC2), Yankees, Red Socks, Orioles

    AL Central: Twins, Royals, Tigers, Indians, White Sox

    AL West: Rangers, Angels (WC1), Mariners, A's

    Blue Jays ride into the playoffs on a late season surge, coupled with some injury problems with the Yankees. They shock everyone by beating the Angels in the wild card game and the Rangers in the ALDS. The Rays pummel the Twins, and the ALCS sets a new record for number of home runs in a playoff series, but ultimately, the Rays win in 7.

    Have you been paying any attention to the AL?
