Looking Back At My 2013 Standings Predictions

2013 Predictions : The Playoffs Teams

The 2013 season is right around the corner and this time Major League Baseball is going to do the playoffs and it's scheduling the right way. No more hanging by a thread because of a rain delay, a potential tie breaker, etc this time around. Here are the teams that I expect to win their respected divisions and the wild cards while fight their way to a World Series trophy.

American League East Champion
New York Yankees

American League Central Champion
Cleveland Indians

American League West Champion
Los Angeles Angels Of Anaheim

Wild Card #1 Winner
Tampa Bay Rays

Wild Card #2 Winner
Detroit Tigers

National League East Champion
Washington Nationals

National League Central Champion
Pittsburgh Pirates

National League West Champion
Los Angeles Dodgers

Wild Card #1 Winner
Philadelphia Phillies

Wild Card #2 Winner
Atlanta Braves

Here is a reluctant thumbs up for me on my preseason predictions on the divisions. The Yankees, Angels, and Indians did not win their divisions but the Indians did make the playoffs in a wild card. The Tigers won the division and the Tampa Bay Rays won the wild card so I predicted three of the five playoff teams in the American League. 

The Nationals and Pirates did not win their divisions but the Pirates did win one of the wild card spots. The Dodgers won the NL West division and the Atlanta Braves did win their division, not the wild card, so I predicted three of the five playoff spots in the National League as well. 

Six out of 10 ain't bad?
