I haven't put a lot of thought into these - I've been paying more attention to individual players than teams as a whole (except the Mariners).

AL East: Red Sox
AL Central: Twins
AL West: Mariners (Angels have about equal odds IMO, but homer-ism gives it to Seattle)
AL Wild Card: Yankees

NL East: Phillies
NL Central: Cardinals
NL West: D-Backs
NL Wild Card: Giants

World Series Prediction: Red Sox over Phillies in 7

AL MVP: A-Rod
AL Cy Young: Felix
AL Rookie of the Year: (No clue)
AL Comeback Player of the Year: BJ Upton

NL MVP: Pujols
NL Cy Young: Halladay
NL Rookie of the Year: Strasburg
NL Comeback Player of the Year: David Wright

I like Heyward's game, I've seen a few spring training games of the Atlanta Braves and he doesn't look like a rookie. He takes his pitches, he's poise at the plate and he has some pop in his bat. He's one of the highest rated prospects in the Major Leagues. I expect a great year from him if healthy.

I completely agree. The guy reminds me of Pujols in the sense that he seems light years ahead of his age at the plate.

I made a couple reaches with Tampa and Atlanta getting in and the Red Sox not making it...we'll see.

The AL West is gonna be a tight race. Seattle, Anaheim and Texas all have a legit shot I think.

I think the NL West will be close as well, Diamondbacks should rebound from a bad end of year last season, Dodgers will be competitive once again and I believe the Giants will have a very strong year.

I didnt really know who to pick in that division either to be honest...I just went with the Giants becuase of Lincecum and Cain and I dont like the Dodgers rotation that much.

Zona with a HEALTHY Webb and Dan Haren should be a force too. Oh, and Edwin Jackson. Hell, Colorado isn't half bad either.
