Your Fearless 2015 MLB Predictions

Get strokin' those crystal ablls, folks, and let's hear your 2015 MLB predictions! I'll start:

AL East
1. Red Sox
2. Blue Jays*
3. Yankees
4. Orioles
5. Rays

Red Sox will set a record for both runs scored, runs allowed AND length of game. Blue Jays will finish second to Red Sox in all of those records, be a better team, but still finish 2nd as they'll continue to lose to NYY. Orioles and Rays are bad.

AL Central
1. Tigers
2. Indians
3. Royals
4. White Sox
5. Twins

The White Sox go on a tear in April/May and plummet to mediocrity in summer. Chris Sale has a banner season but falls in Cy Young vote to Felix because WINNZ!!!1 Indians lead division from May-September before faltering to Detroit in September, because that always happens.

AL West
1. Mariners
2. Angels*
3. Athletics
4. Astros
5. Rangers

Super-boring Mariners quietly win 95 games and a pile of individual awards. Nothing else interesting happens. Mike Trout continues to Mike Trout all over the league.

Playoffs: Angels over Blue Jays in Wild Card Game. Red Sox over Angels. Mariners over Tigers. Mariners over Red Sox.

NL East
1. Nationals
2. Marlins*
3. Mets
4. Phillies
5. Braves

Brave and Phillies are historically bad. Nationals win 90+ games, with Marlins always present but never really threatening for the division. Max Scherzer sets team record in K's but still has higher ERA than Kershaw. Mets finish third but never threaten to reach .500 because they're the Mets and they're really not that good.

NL Central
1. Pirates
2. Cardinals*
3. Cubs
4. Brewers
5. Reds

Possibly the most exciting division outside of the crowded AL East, the Pirates and Cardinals fight down to game 162. Cubs finish over .500 by beating up on Cincinnati all season and many piles of runs being scored. Brewers go full-2013, start season 40-20 and finish 80-82.

NL West
1. Dodgers
2. Padres
3. Giants
4. Rockies
5. Diamondbacks

Dodgers beat the hell out of everyone. There are no survivors.

Marlins over Cardinals. Dodgers over Marlins. Pirates over Nationals. Dodgers over Pirates.

World Series: Dodgers over Mariners (sorry, that's sooo boring.)

Awards
AL ROY - Rusney Castillo
NL ROY - Kris Bryant

AL MVP - Robinson Cano
NL MVP - Giancarlo Stanton

AL Cy - Felix Hernandez
NL Cy - Clayton Kershaw
