    2008 World Series, ROY, other award predictions

    Now that Gonelong has broke out his Reds predictions thread, it's time to predict division winners, the World Series winner, and ROY/Cy Young/MVP award winners.

    AL East

    Boston Red Sox - WS caliber team but Tigers are too much to handle.

    New York Yankees - Wang regresses a bit and young pitching is not enough to get 'em in the postseason.

    Toronto Blue Jays - good season but finisn 3rd again

    Tampa Bay Rays - franchise record 75 wins

    Baltimore Orioles - rebuilding mode, Roberts is dealt in June.

    AL Central

    Detroit Tigers - best record in baseball with 104 wins

    Cleveland Indians - wildcard winner with 96 wins

    Chicago White Sox - Fields breaks out with 30 homers

    Minnesota Twins - loss of Santana leaves ton of question marks in pen, though Liriano bounces back with big season.

    Kansas City Royals - good looking you bats in Butler/Gordon but pitching is awful.

    AL West

    Los Angeles Angels - Jered Weaver finishes top 5 in Cy Young voting.

    Seattle Mariners - Bedard/Hernandez form great 1-2 due but no enough to top Angels

    Oakland A's - rebuilding continues as Blanton is traded in July

    Texas Rangers - nice offense but pitching remains awful.

    ALDS:

    Detroit Tigers over LAA Angels
    Boston Red Sox over Cleveland Indians

    ALCS:

    Detroit Tigers over Boston Red Sox

    AL Cy Young - Justin Verlander
    AL MVP - Miguel Cabrera
    AL Rookie of the Year - Joba Chamberlain

    NL East

    New York Mets - addition of Johan makes the Mets team to beat in NL.

    Philadelphia Phillies - not enough pitching behind Hamels and Myers to top Mets

    Atlanta Braves - great offense but rotation is Smoltz and Hudson and three question marks.

    Florida Marlins - good seasons from Maybin and Andrew Miller as Marlins build for the new stadium.

    Washington Nationals - maybe the worst rotation in baseball

    NL Central

    Cincinnati Reds - yeah I'm an optimist but who isn't in March? Young guns struggle in first half but gel in second half leading Reds to 86 wins and a postseason trip for the first time since 1995.

    Milwaukee Brewers - Fielder wins MVP but Brewers finish one game behind Reds.

    Chicago Cubs - the curse reaches 100 years

    St. Louis Cardinals - Pujols has an injured elbow, rotation is in shambles

    Pittsburgh Pirates - like the new ownership, a couple good position prospects on the way up.

    Houston Astros - awful rotation and the worst farm system.

    NL West

    Los Angeles Dodgers - strong pitching staff puts them in postseason under Torre

    Arizona Diamondbacks - love the rotation but the loss of Valverde in the pen plus a struggling offense costs them a postseason position.

    San Diego Padres - Peavy finishes second to Santana in Cy Young voting.

    Colorado Rockies - winning record but fail to reach playoffs.

    San Francisco Giants - nice 1/2 punch in Cain and Lincecum but offense is worst in baseball.

    NLDS:

    New York Mets over Cincinnati Reds
    Los Angeles Dodgers over Philadelphia Phillies

    NLCS:

    New York Mets over Los Angeles Dodgers

    NL Cy Young - Johan Santana
    NL MVP - Prince Fielder
    NL Rookie of the Year - Johnny Cueto

    World Series

    Detroit Tigers over New York Mets in Game 7

    Let's see yours.

    Yes. I'm an idiot. I originally had the the Reds winning the division and then switched to the Brewers and then back to the Reds and just forgot to change my playoff predictions.

    Re: 2008 World Series, ROY, other award predictions

    AL East

    1. New York Yankees - The best offense in baseball and a decent rotation. The energy this spring under Joe Girardi is that of past champions. Can ARod hit 73+? Watch out for young Robbie Cano and Phillip Hughes & Ian Kennedy are looking like they are the real deal.

    2. Boston Red Sox - The Sox have some pitching questions and some players that are getting older, but they will be right there at the end. They also have the best front office in the game and could pull a couple starters out of their hat.

    3. Toronto Blue Jays - Some people would suggest the Jays have the best pitching staff in the east, but can Scott Rolen hold up everyday at 3rd?

    4. Tampa Bay Rays - The Rays should have their best season yet, but the AL East is too much for the young Rays.

    5. Baltimore Orioles - Maybe the worst team in baseball.

    AL Central

    1. Detroit Tigers - Verlander, Willis, Ordonez, Sheffield, Cabrera, Guillen, Renteria, Granderson, Polanco. If they are healthy, they may be the best team in baseball.

    2. Cleveland Indians - The Indians were one game from the World Series in '07, but I believe the rotation needs some help.

    3. Minnesota Twins- Johan has moved east and the return was less than stellar. Matt Garza was sent to Tampa. Joe and Justin can't do it alone on offense in the Central this year. Liriano is back and, if healthy, could contend for a Cy Young.

    4. Chicago White Sox - I like some of their pieces, but they don't have enough to complete the puzzle. Kenny Williams may be in trouble after '08.

    5. Kansas City Royals - They are on the way up, but much like the White Sox, don't have enough players.

    AL West

    1. Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim - The class of the AL West again and the addition of Torii Hunter will only help.

    2. Seattle Mariners - A very good 1,2,3 punch in the rotation, but the Mariners are considering hitting Vidro 3rd. Needless to say, they have some questions to answer. Can Richie Sexson regain form or is he done?

    3. Texas Rangers - A very good offense with Kinsler at the top, Young in the 2 hole, Josh Hamilton hitting 3rd, and Milton Bradley hitting 4th. If Bradley can stay healthy the lineup should be very good. Kevin Millwood is on his last legs, Vincente Padilla just isn't that good, especially in that park, and they pray for rain after that. Young Eric Hurley needs, at least, 1/2 a season in AAA then he will help.

    4. Oakland A's - GM Billy Beane gave away Dan Haren, Joe Blanton is on the way out if Beane can find a taker, & Rich Harden hasn't been healthy for an entire season in a while. Huston Street anchors the pen. The offense is likely to be awful especially playing 81 games in the Coliseum. Chris Denorfia is not your savior.

    NL Later....

    Re: 2008 World Series, ROY, other award predictions

    Here's my go at it

    AL East
    Red Sox - The New Yankees
    Blue Jays - Pitching galore with just enough hitting
    Yankees - Old old old team. Did I mention they are old?
    Rays - Could topple the Yankees if their pitching holds up.
    Orioles - Man this team has fallen a long way

    AL Central
    Indians - Stacked team from top to bottom
    White Sox - Smart Rebuilding that will be complete when Crede goes away
    Tigers - Not even close to as good as people think they are. 1000 runs? Riiiight
    Royals - Young guns take another step forward
    Twins - Santana was fun to watch, wasn't he?

    AL West
    Angels - Should cruise easily to win the West
    Mariners - Two aces...and a team filled with crappy hitters. Only reason they are 2nd is by default.
    As - Will catch lightning in a bottle in the 2nd half. Future is quite bright
    Rangers - Will be nice in a few years but this team is a house of cards right now

    NL East
    Braves - Thought about this one the longest. Big Teix puts them over the edge.
    Phillies - Pitching unease will do them in again. Lose to Colorado in 1 game playoff for the Wild Card slot
    Mets - Johan is just one guy. Did everyone forget how god awful they were in Sept last year.
    Nationals - Better than expected. Decent year in the new park with a promising future ahead.
    Marlins - Post Girardi arm troubles continue. Not having Miggy will cripple the offense.

    NL Central
    Brewers - Potential for 2 aces and half a dozen impact bats. Will probably run away and hide in the central.
    Cubs - Excellent pitching but just not enough of everything else.
    Reds - Only 3rd because the rest of the division sucks something awful
    Pirates - Young pitchers push this team higher than it's been in years
    Astros - Will score tons of runs and not stop anyone else from scoring any. Wonder if the all time Fielding Percentage low might be broken by their IF defense?
    Cardinals - Pujols mails it in after Memorial Day and gets his surgery, and this team becomes an expansion level offense. And their pitching...well...you can't shine up a turd.

    NL West
    Diamondbacks - Best Record in the NL and they got better without giving up any major league talent. Could be scary good
    Rockies - Won't match 2007 but good enough for the WC
    Padres - So close but just not enough juice to pass AZ or CO
    Dodgers - Colletti trades away Kemp & Ethier for vets at the deadline to make one last push, then gets fired after the last day.
    Giants - I have no earthly idea how this team will score runs. Worst team in baseball and it is not going to be close.

    AL MVP
    Vladdy Daddy - Best player on a team that cruises thru the season with 100+ wins
    AL ROY
    Evan Longoria - Pulls a Ryan Braun and goes nuts after being called up June 1.
    AL Cy Young
    AJ Burnett - Puts all the talent & potential together just in time to push the Jays to the Wild Card, and exercise that option in his contract
    AL Comeback Player
    Brian Anderson - He was left for dead two years ago after an awful rookie year. This year he becomes the Real deal giving the White Sox one of the youngest & best OFs in baseball.

    NL MVP
    Prince Fielder - Probably will hit 50 bombs again with Braun pairing up with him
    NL ROY
    Kosuke Fukodome - Because the Writers are idiots and haven't figured out that 10 year professionals coming over from Japan aren't "rookies" in any sense of the word.
    NL Cy Young
    Danny Haren - Webb comes close again but Haren pitching a good chunk of his starts in Dodger Stadium, PacBell, Coors & Petco will do wonders for his wins & ERA.
    NL Comeback Player of the Year
    Mike Hampton - Did anyone see him pitching today? Holy cow he's looking good and healthy


    ALDS
    Red Sox over Indians in 5 - Indians still can't get that Boston monkey off their back.
    Blue Jays over Angels in 5 - Oops - Someone forget to tell the Angels that the season didn't end in July
    ALCS
    Red Sox over Blue Jays in 6 - I hate the Red Sox

    NLDS
    Dbacks over Braves in 4 - Glavine & Smoltz end their careers with a loss
    Brewers over the Rockies in 5 - Probably the most entertaining match-up
    NLCS
    Dbacks over Brewers in 6 - Haren/Webb v Sheets/Gallardo? Sign me up

    World Series
    Dbacks over Red Sox in 7 - With a Eric Byrnes flare hit over 2B off Papelbon in the 9th. We'll call it "The last night of the Red Sox Dynasty"

    Boston - Not as dominant. Wins 95 Games

    Re: 2008 World Series, ROY, other award predictions

    It's march- Reds go wire to wire, sweep the division, LCS and WS. Johnny Cueto wins the Cy Young, Jay Bruce wins ROY.

    Who cares what happens in the other leagues?

    Seriously- I don't pay enough attention to other divisions to know, but I can certainly see the Reds contending this year if the promise of the Dominican Dandies and Cordero amounts to the hype. Unfortunately for Jay Bruce, I think he's going to have trouble getting up the the show this year unless Jr. snaps a hammy again. But pencil him in at RF next year.

    So my prediction for the Central is: Brewers, Reds, Cubs, Cards, Stros.
    Next Reds manager, second shooter. --Confirmed on Redszone.

    WS: Reds in 7 over Detroit. Here's how it happens: In the bottom of the 9th of game 7, with Todd Jones on the mound, and the Reds down by one, Jones walks Scott Hatteberg. This brings up Ken Griffey Jr. (who has announced his retirement prior to the series). Jr. lines the first pitch in the the right field seats for a Reds world series victory.
    I can dare to dream, can't I.

    Dusty would have to bat Scott Hatteberg #2 for that to happen... Unless he is pinch-hitting for Juan Castro
    "On-base percentage is great if you can score runs and do something with that on-base percentage," Baker said. "Clogging up the bases isn't that great to me."

    In my dream, Castro stays in Sarasota to be a roving minor league IF instructor.
