'Tis the time of the year for the season predictions. I took a (unpublished) cut on these right at the beginning of Spring Training and then I finalized them today. I actually had to make a few changes based on events that happened in Spring Training and even teams' performances in Spring Training. Here are my predictions for the 2012 Major League Baseball season, including standing for each division, who will win the wild card and who will win the League Pennants and the World Series. Optimism abounds, since everyone (other than the Athletics and the Mariners) are starting with a clean slate:

AL Central:

Twins
Tigers
Royals
Indians
White Sox

AL East:

Red Sox
Yankees
Blue Jays
Rays
Orioles


AL West:

Rangers
Angels
Mariners
Athletics


AL Wild Cards: Yankees, Angels

NL East:

Nationals
Phillies
Marlins
Braves
Mets

NL Central:

Reds
Pirates
Brewers
Cardinals
Cubs
Astros

NL West:

Giants
Dodgers
Diamondbacks
Padres
Rockies

NL Wild Cards: Phillies, Pirates

ALCS: Twins over Red Sox
NLCS: Nationals over Philies

WS: Twins over Nationals in 6.

    In the mid 80's, my kid brother started picking the Twins every year. By the early 90's, the kid had incredibly picked 2 long-shot winners. Unfortunately, he grew up to have unrealistic expectations. But dang he's optimistic.

    If I thought that the Twins did not have a chance to win the division (and a good one) I wouldn't have picked them... I just don't like the Tigers this season. And if they win the Division, everything can happen.
