2013 MLB Playoff Predictions

March 31, 2013

The 2013 regular season should be an exciting one.  Several of the races should come down to the last week, maybe even the last game.  It will tough to match the competitiveness of the 2012 playoffs, with all 4 Divisional Series and one of the League Championship Series going the distance.

In the American League, I believe that the Toronto Blue Jays will win the East and have the best record in the AL, the Los Angeles Angels will win the West with the second best record, and the Detroit Tigers will win the Central.  The Wild Card teams will be the Kansas City Royals and the Baltimore Orioles.

In the National League, the Washington Nationals will win the East with the best record in all of baseball, the Cincinnati Reds will win the Central with the second best record, and the San Francisco Giants will win the West.  Both of the Wild Card teams will come out of the Central: the Milwaukee Brewers and the St. Louis Cardinals.

In the Wild Card Round, I have the Kansas City Royals beating the Baltimore Orioles in the American League and the Milwaukee Brewers finally getting the best of the St. Louis Cardinals in a playoff round.

Next up is the Divisional Series.  In the American League, the Toronto Blue Jays will take the series against the Kansas City Royals 3 games to 1, and the Detroit Tigers will stun the Los Angeles Angels 3 games to 2.  In the National League, the Milwaukee Brewers will upset the Washington Nationals 3 games to 2 and the Cincinnati Reds will sweep the San Francisco Giants 3 games to none.

Both of the League Championship Series will come down to game 7, with the home team coming out on top.  The Milwaukee Brewers will fall to the Cincinnati Reds and the Toronto Blue Jays will out last the Detroit Tigers.

The World Series between the Cincinnati Reds and the Toronto Blue Jays will go down as one of the most exciting.  Neither team will be up by more than one game the entire series, and game 7 will be a back and forth extra inning game that ends with a game winning double hit by Joey Votto scoring Shin-Soo Choo and Brandon Phillips.
