Jesse’s 2011 MLB Predictions
24 March 2011

I’m much less bullish in my predictions for the Phillies than I was a month ago when I wrote about them due to the injuries to Utley, Dom Brown, Polonco and Lidge. I think many of these, especially Utley’s could linger throughout the season. This could really open up the NL. I’m also a very superstitious Phillies fan and I refuse to jinx them by assuming they will waltz to a World Series. It also seems to me that whenever teams are can’t miss – they do.
In the AL – I love the Red Sox to mow down everyone on their way to a World Series title.
AL East Champ: Red Sox
AL Central Champ: Twins
AL West Champ: Rangers
AL Wild Card: Yankees
NL East Champ: Phillies
NL Central Champ: Reds
NL West Champ: Giants
NL Wild Card: Braves
AL Champ: Red Sox
NL Champ: Braves
World Series Champ: Red Sox in 6.
AL MVP: Joe Mauer, Minnesota Twins
AL CY: Jon Lester, Boston Red Sox
AL ROY: Mike Moustakas, Kansas City Royals
NL MVP: Albert Pujols, St. Louis Cardinals
NL CY: Cole Hamels, Philadelphia Phillies

Top 3 BOLD Predictions for 2011:
1. Brett Myers will out duel Roy Halladay on opening day causing mass panic in Philadelphia.
2. The Washington Nationals and Baltimore Orioles will not finish in last place bringing some joy to our Nation’s Capitol.
3. Chase Utley won’t play this season. (but I really hope he does)
