Wild Card Winner - Boston Red Sox, Tampa Bay Rays in 1 game
playoff with the Texas Rangers.  Boston then beating Tampa Bay.
Note: Team predictions based on relationship of PEVA Shuffle Index - Preseason 2012 to wins and losses.

American League East
It looks like a repeat of a whole lot of things in the American League East as the Yankees battle the Red Sox all season long with the Tampa Bay Rays nipping at their heels.  And for awhile at least, we see Toronto adding a fourth team to the mix.  With the addition of that extra wild card spot (something we're not crazy about, even though we don't mind making it harder for the wild card to win the series), both Boston and Tampa Bay might make it.  In fact, we're predicting, and doubtful that it happens, that Tampa Bay and Texas will be playing an addition playoff game to determine who gets to play Boston for the right to advance.  Oh, boy.

I know that leaves out the Baltimore Orioles again.  We like their lineup, with players such as Markakis and Jones there is hope.  But some day they have to find some pitching and we're not talking about the independent leagues.

American League Central
Now we're getting into the territory of what we think are three special teams in baseball going into the season, albeit with one, Philadelphia, battling injuries to productive stars.  The Detoit Tigers could win well over 100 games, although since they sit in a division which they may run away with, there will be little incentive to try and match the 111 wins we're predicting.  So we'll admit, that's unlikely to happen.  But the other teams here with the White Sox not looking nearly as formidable as an opponent, don't look too good.

We think Cleveland has enough young players that they'll be an interesting team to watch.  Same goes for Kansas City.  And in some ways, Minnesota, could be a surprise, if those stars in Morneau and Mauer, can overcome the injuries and lead the Twins again.

But overall, Detroit looks just too good.  Verlander at the top of his game.  Miguel Cabrera with a batting order running mate in Prince Fielder. @ Zazzle
American League West
We haven't given as much credit to the Texas Rangers in the predictions in past seasons only to be wrong.  So this year, when we think of the LA Anaheim Angels as the team to beat, we might just be wrong again.  But we just see Anaheim as making so much progress with Pujols and Wilson adding to the starting staff of Weaver and Haren, that the division should be theirs to lose.  But they might just lose it.  In Seattle and Oakland, they are still building, as seemingly pretty far down the contention line.  Two young players who have our interest, however, are Jesus Montero in Seattle and Mr. Cespedes in Oakland.  Whether they can make a big enough difference to wins and losses is another story.
