MLB Postseason & Award Predictions


Yankees over Twins
Red Sox over Angels

Red Sox over Yankees

Cardinals over Braves
Rockies over Phillies

Cardinals over Rockies

World Series
Cardinals over Red Sox: Pujols+Holliday+Carpenter+Wainwright = dominance.


NL: Troy Tulowitzki, Rockies (Pujols is too easy)- The best player on a team that I see coasting to the division title.
AL: Miguel Cabrera, Tigers- Can he hit when he's sober? My guess is yes.

Cy Young
NL: Adam Wainwright, Cardinals
AL: CC Sabathia, Yankees

NL: Aroldis Chapman, Reds (Jason Heyward is too easy)- Low-pressure situation in Cincy. Should thrive.
AL: Scott Sizemore, Tigers- He can handle the stick and will provide adequate defense. Pretty weak rookie class this year in the AL, too.

NL: Dusty Baker, Reds- It pains me to vote this way because I think Dusty is generally clueless, but if the Reds can stay competitive, he can win this.
AL: Ron Gardenhire, Twins- He'll ride the "We won without Nathan" card to this award.


  1. I've always wondered this when people predict final standings and then postseason results: If you think the Yankees are going to finish with the best record in the American League, why wouldn't you predict them to go to the World Series? Makes no sense.

  2. Over the course of a season, I think the Yankees' fourth and fifth starters will outproduce Boston's.

    When playing a seven-game series, however, I would much rather have Josh Beckett-Jon Lester-John Lackey than CC Sabathia-AJ Burnett-and Andy Pettitte.
