2013 Predictions : The American League East

The 2013 season is right around the corner so I wanted to take the chance to look at what the standings will look like, in my opinion, at the end of the 2013 season. How often are these things pre-season ever even close to right? Here goes:

1. New York Yankees 93-69
2. Tampa Bay Rays 92-70
3. Toronto Blue Jays 91-71
4. Boston Red Sox 90-72
5. Baltimore Orioles 88-74

I really think the Yankees dominance of the division continues in 2013. Whether that is more because of what happened this off season, my unwillingness to acknowledge that Derek Jeter WILL in fact age, or the fact that I am just a huge homer with a Yankees blog I have not figured that part out yet. Either way the Yankees will finish at the top of their division once again, miss the Wild Card playoff game, and march towards the ultimate goal of our 28th World Championship.

  1. What a logjam!

    I think it will be difficult for all 5 teams to be over .500 myself.

    I see it playing out like this:

    1. TOR 94-68
    2. NYY 92-70
    3. BAL 90-72
    4. TB 87-75
    5. BOS 80-82

    With top-3 making playoffs


Sorry for the Capatcha... Blame the Russians :)
