2013 MLB Predictions – Review

September 29, 2013

Now that the season is over, it is time to look at how my predictions have fared.  I made predictions before the start of the season, and then updated them at the All-Star Break.  Let’s take a look at those predictions:

Preseason All-Star Update
National League National League
East Central West East Central West
Nationals Reds Giants Nationals Reds Dodgers
Braves Brewers Dodgers Braves Cardinals D-backs
Phillies Cardinals D-backs Phillies Pirates Giants
Mets Pirates Padres Mets Cubs Rockies
Marlins Cubs Rockies Marlins Brewers Padres
American League American League
East Central West East Central West
Blue Jays Tigers Angels Red Sox Tigers Athletics
Orioles Royals Athletics Orioles Royals Rangers
Rays Indians Rangers Yankees Indians Angels
Red Sox Twins Mariners Rays Twins Mariners
Yankees White Sox Astros Blue Jays White Sox Astros

Now let’s look at how the season actually turned out:

National League American League
East Central West East Central West
Braves Cardinals Dodgers Red Sox Tigers Athletics
Nationals Pirates D-backs Rays Indians Rangers
Mets Reds Padres Orioles Royals Angels
Phillies Brewers Giants Yankees Twins Mariners
Marlins Cubs Rockies Blue Jays White Sox Astros

I think I did pretty well in my preseason predictions. In the NL East, I had 1 and 2 flip-flopped and 3 and 4 flip-flopped. In the NL Central, I was right about 3 teams going to the playoffs, just not the right 3 teams. In the NL West, I just had the Giants in the wrong place, and the same goes with the Angels in the AL West. In the AL Central, I had the Royals and Indians swapped. The AL East was probably my worst preseason prediction.
