So once again, I offer the greatest compilation of sports prognostication around. I crunched the numbers and added in my own special expertise. Without further adieu, the greatness:

AL East
  1. 95 - 67 Boston Red Sox

  2. 89 - 73 New York Yankees

  3. 88 - 74 Tampa Bay Rays

  4. 78 - 84 Toronto Blue Jays

  5. 68 - 94 Baltimore Orioles

AL Central
  1. 85 - 77 Cleveland Indians

  2. 84 - 80 Minnesota Twins

  3. 83 - 78 Detroit Tigers

  4. 81 - 71 Chicago White Sox

  5. 74 - 88 Kansas City Royals

AL West
  1. 88 - 74 Los Angeles Angels

  2. 83 - 79 Texas Rangers

  3. 80 - 82 Oakland Athletics

  4. 69 - 93 Seattle Mariners

NL East
  1. 90 - 72 Philadelphia Phillies

  2. 87 - 75 New York Mets

  3. 82 - 80 Florida Marlins

  4. 75 - 87 Atlanta Braves

  5. 72 - 90 Washington Nationals

NL Central
  1. 91 - 71 Chicago Cubs

  2. 89 - 73 St. Louis Cardinals

  3. 86 - 76 Milwaukee Brewers

  4. 82 - 80 Houston Astros

  5. 74 - 88 Cincinnati Reds

  6. 70 - 92 Pittsburgh Pirates

NL West
  1. 89 - 73 Los Angeles Dodgers

  2. 83 - 79 Arizona Diamondbacks

  3. 81 - 81 San Francisco Giants

  4. 75 - 87 Colorado Rockies

  5. 70 - 92 San Diego Padres


So according to that account the Playoffs look like:

You have some decent picks, but I don't see the Cubs in the World Series, that's pretty bold. I’m looking forward to this year’s season, should be another good one. I made a top ten list of my projections for the regular season results: http://www.toptentopten.com/topten/projected+baseball+teams+2009+regular+season. I think my picks are solid, if you don’t agree you can actually change the order by voting.
