AL East - Yankees (God I hate picking them)
AL Central - Tigers
AL West - Angels
AL Wild Card - Cleveland
NL East - Phillies
NL Central - Cubs
NL West - Arizona
NL Wild Card - Mets
ALCS - Tigers over Yankees in 7
NLCS - Phillies over Arizona
WS - Tigers in 4 if AL wins All Star Games, in 7 if NL wins All Star Game.
Well I biffed the AL big time. Only one I got right was the Angels. With 5 games left to play the Arizona Diamond backs are still in contention for the NL West, but if the season ends and nothing changes I only missed Arizona in the NL so I didn't do too bad.
My surprises of the season...
Tampa Bay - Need I say more?!?!
New York Yankees - They had become such a normal in the payoffs lately I figured they still had a chance at the begining of Sept. I am happy they didn't make it.
Twins - Honestly I figured we we be finishing between Cleveland & KC near the bottom
Tigers - These guys picked up so much talent over the the off season between '07 & '08 I had them pegged as World Series bound not celler dwellers like they are.
Milwaukee - Didn't see them playing as well as they have or as consistantly. Still trying to figure out how a Vegitarian gets so fat. Can you please explain that to me Mr. Goodyear Blimp (aka - Prince Fielder).
Cubs - I figured they would win the Central, but not kick everyones asses like they have.
It is the 100 anniversary of the last time the Cubs won a World Series. Lets hope for a continuation of the curse. Because if it comes down to a Chicago series I will root for the Sox just to see the curse extended.
