Default Predictions for upcoming Major League season

Posted By: jay behrens

I was going to start this thread a few days ago, so here goes, what is your prediction for the upcoming season

AL East
Yanks (as much as hate to pick them)

AL Central
Twins
Indiands (Wild Cards)

AL West
Oakland

NL East
Mets
Braves (Wild Card)

NL Central
Cards

NL West
Giants

Cards and A's duke it out with St Louis winning it all.

I like to sit outside, drink beer and yell at people. If I did this at home, I would be arrested. So, I go to baseball games and fit right in.

edited title to be more specific

I predict the Yankees will win the series in 6 games. Also, that the Mets will win 3-2 on opening day, with Wagner getting the save, & Vidro getting thrown out at 2nd base to end the game.

You guys don't give my Astros no love at all. Prediction, Clemens will be in rotation by early May and therefore a little stronger for the stretch drive.

Being close to Toronto, i have to be optimistic....

If Halliday can stay healthy and won 20 like he does. If Chacin ( or however you spell it ) can win around 17 + games, and atleaast 14-ish from a few more, i think they will go places. I think they have the hitting to do it. They just never had any pitching, it was always 1 ace, and a bunch of so so guys.

Yankees will probably be 1st as usual.

Braves will win the division, and choke in the post season as usual.

Angels win the AL west. You guys are smoking your old cardboard if you think otherwise. Their pitching is far better than other AL west teams

Don't know how many of you have Diamond Mine baseball for the computer, but it's the sim I used to play the season. I ran the season 10 times and averaged everything out. My predictions are what the Diamond Mine simulation came up.

If you don't own Diamond Mine, you should look into it. It's a great sim. They don't have all past seasons available, but you can get just about every 19c and most deadball seasons from fan sites. If you have DM and don't know about these sites, email me and I will give you the URL.

I am currently playing the 1887 season as the Detroit Wolverines. You have no clue just how frustrating the game was back then compared to how it is played today. Games with 15 or more errors is the norm.

Nobody picked the Tigers to make the playoffs and only one person went with the Padres.

Jay is the only person who's World Series picks are still in the playoffs.

Love the Giants call. We have the All Star game and we're getting Bonds back to break the record. We're going for the hat trick with the WS crown!

Well he could easily have ten seasons to go, and has been averaging over forty per. He could get to 800. If NY don't want to watch this assault on the record, they are crazy.

My prediction for the upcoming season is that he crosses the first hurdle: 500 HRs.

If he stays healthy, he will give Pujols the target (if Pujols can also stay healthy).

Its hard to predict who is going to win the divisions because we dont know who will sign with who before the season starts.

Just for the record, this thread was started in April 06 for this seeason not a thread for predictions in 07.

It's mix up like this in other threads that get some threads going on the wrong direction. I recommend reading the threads throughly before responding. No harm in this thread but it has happened many times in the past.

I can't believed I picked the A's to go to the WS. I completely forgot about this thread. Very interesting to see how everyone did. Too bad I don't gamble, I would have done pretty well.

Frank,

When I first saw this post I didn't look at the date either, then I realized what it was.

Bonds - Comeback player? Not with steroid testing going on.... Just kidding Jay... I just wanted to have some fun here.

Hey Jay i cant believe i picked the Angels above because since late-March ive had money on the A's to win it all! I have a feeling i meant A's unless i was trying to put some anti-jinx on myself?

Hey Jay, how did playing the 1887 Detroit Wolverines pan out? They dominated nearly all offensive categories with better than average pitching.

Best Regards,

I haven't finished out the season yet. Haven't played any games in a few months, but seem to remember that I was in 3rd last I played and Brouthers was leading or among the leaders in a number of catagories. Still amazes me the number of errors commited back. Makes you understand why great fielders were held in such high esteem back then.

Why is anyone making rpedictions for 2007? We have no clue where free agents are going. The thread was revived to see how we all did with our predictions for this year.

How can you say 1968 wes the best WS ever? Nothing comes close to 1991. 5 games decided by one run and arguably, the great single game in WS history with Jack Morris' 10 innning shutout, You don't have to be a Twins fan to appreciate how great this series was and is propably a huge reason why Puckett got elected to the HOF.

Hi Guys,
As much as it scares me(to death); I agree with Jay. As a Braves fan the 91 series was amazing, Morris and Smoltz were both incredible and un hittable. Too bad Cox ruined it by putting Charlie in to pitch to Kirby, every Braves fan I know knew what was going to happen next HOMERUN.....

Be well Brian

PS Jay, I'm just picking as usual, you don't scare me that much and certainly not to death, as you do the lurkers. If only Sid Bream had hit the game winner, now that would have been fun.



PS 2. Game 4 of the 1990 series with Rijo was pretty incredible too, but it was only 1 game.
