MLB: 2013 Major League Baseball Predictions

MLB: 2013 Major League Baseball Predictions

With the 2013 MLB season less than 24 hours away, I thought I would give the old predictions a try. This is something that should always be taken with a grain of salt no matter who is doing it. This is for fun more than anything because teams can change throughout the season. But with that said, I still think it is fun to put together a list of who I think will win it all.

First, let us start with the American League and who will win each division.

AL East

I’m going to go with the trendy pick here and go with the Toronto Blue Jays. They added so much in the off season and nobody else in the division really seemed to get much better.

1. Toronto Blue Jays

2. Tampa Bay Rays

3. Baltimore Orioles

4. Boston Red Sox

5. New York Yankees

AL Central

I still think this is Detroit’s division to lose.

1. Detroit Tigers

2. Cleveland Indians

3. Kansas City Royals

4. Chicago White Sox

5. Minnesota Twins

AL West

This might be one of the most heated races come September.

1. Texas Rangers

2. Anaheim Angels

3. Oakland A’s

4. Seattle Mariners

5. Houston Astros

American League Wild Card

1. Tampa Bay Rays

2. Anaheim Angles

A lot of people have the Detroit Tigers winning the A.L. this year, but I am going to go with the Texas Rangers. I know I am a fan, but I also think the young guys come up and really help put this team back into the World Series.

Now for the National League

NL East

I think the best race will be this division and it will come down to Atlanta and Washington.

1. Washington Nationals

2. Atlanta Braves

3. Philadelphia Philies

4. New York Mets

5. Miami Marlins

NL Central

1. Cincinnati Reds

2. St. Louis Cardinals

3. Milwaukee Brewers

4. Pittsburgh Pirates

5. Chicago Cubs

NL West

1. Los Angeles Dodgers

2. San Francisco Giants

3. Arizona Diamondbacks

4. San Diego Padres

5. Colorado Rockies

National League Wild Card

1. Atlanta Braves

2. San Francisco Giants

National League Champion – Washington Nationals

I see a Washington/Texas World Series with Texas finally getting their first title behind a strong year from Yu Darvish and the emergence of both Jurickson Profar and Mike Olt.

So there you have it. Take it for what it’s worth. It’s always fun to predict what will happen. If I had my way it would be an Atlanta/Texas series with Atlanta winning. I don’t see it happening though even though that’s probably as likely as a Texas victory over the Nationals.

Who do you think wins this season?
