Looking Back at TGP’s 2017 Predictions: The Division Winners

I truly believe the hardest predictions of all the predictions are the division winners from every season. Who saw the Minnesota Twins playing as well as they have here in 2017? Who saw the Milwaukee Brewers fighting for a NL Central title? Who saw the New York Mets, the Toronto Blue Jays, the San Francisco Giants, the Pittsburgh Pirates and the St. Louis Cardinals to name a few struggling as bad as they have this season? Well for the most part, according to these predictions anyway, I did but who else did? I joke, a little, but I feel like I did pretty well here on this set of predictions all things considered. Also I remember all the ragging and the comments I got when I had the Yankees winning a Wild Card this season also, no hard feelings though. Here are the complete set of predictions and the write up from the post on April 1, 2017.

TGP 2017 MLB Predictions: The Division Winners

Ladies and gentleman it’s the calm before the storm and the weekend before the 2017 MLB regular season kicks off. Sunday the New York Yankees will take their new right fielder Aaron Judge and their new first baseman Greg Bird and their new catcher Gary Sanchez and the rest of the baby bombers down to Tampa to begin a series with the Tampa Bay Rays inside Tropicana Field. Before the games actually count and mean something though I wanted to take a second to make my yearly predictions for the different awards, division winners and playoff contenders this year. We all know how well my predictions go so let’s just get the embarrassment over with, shall we?

American League:

AL East: Boston Red Sox
AL Central: Cleveland Indians
AL West: Houston Astros
Wild Card #1: Toronto Blue Jays
Wild Card #2: New York Yankees (homer alert)

National League:

NL East: Washington Nationals
NL Central: Chicago Cubs
NL West: Los Angeles Dodgers
Wild Card #1: New York Mets
Wild Card #2: St. Louis Cardinals

So it seems as if potentially I got all six division winners right and one of the Wild Card teams, that team being the New York Yankees. Again, I don’t think that’s half-bad if you ask me but that’s only if you ask me. Let’s ride this wave of good predictions and momentum into the next round of predictions!
