Aaron's 2012 MLB predictions

by Aaron Giddens

With the season two weeks away, it's time for me to make my predictions for 2012.

First, the division and wild card winners:

AL East - Tampa Bay Rays
AL Central - Detroit Tigers
AL West - LA Angels
WC1 - Texas Rangers
WC2 - Boston Red Sox

NL East - Miami Marlins
NL Central - St Louis Cardinals
NL West - San Francisco Giants
WC1 - Philadelphia Phillies
WC2 - Arizona D-Backs

Here's how I predict the playoffs to go:

AL Wild Card round - Sox over Rangers
NL Wild Card round - Phillies over D-backs

NLDS - Phillies over Cards | Marlins over Giants
ALDS - Rays over Tigers | Angels over Red Sox

ALCS - Rays over Angels
NLCS - Marlins over Phillies

World Series - Rays over Marlins in 7

And finally my picks to win awards, I will focus on the big three (Rookie of the Year, Cy Young and MVP):

AL MVP - Josh Hamilton
AL Cy Young - James Shields
AL Rookie of the Year - Matt Moore

NL MVP - Jason Heyward
NL Cy Young - Adam Wainwright
NL Rookie of the Year - Yonder Alonso

This are my picks. What's yours? leave them in the comment section.
