We have reached opening night of the 2012 season! Cardinals vs Marlins at new Marlins Ballpark tonight. While every other team will open the season tomorrow and Friday. In my last series of posts, I went over each division. This entry is about other 2012 predictions- including my world series prediction!
Cy Young: Justin Verlander Runner-up: Felix Hernandez
MVP: Miguel Cabrera Runner-up: Robinson Cano
ROTY: Matt Moore (TB)
MOTY: Joe Maddon
AL Champs: Detroit Tigers
Cy Young: Cliff Lee Runner-up: Matt Cain
NL MVP: Joey Votto Runner-up: Jason Heyward
NL Roty: Bryce Harper
NL MOTY: Mike Matheny
NL CHamps: Phillies
WS Prediction: Tigers over Phillies- This may be Phillies last chance of making the world series as the Marlins and Nationals are on the upcoing rise in the next couple of years. With the 3 ace in their rotation they did not get the job done, as they were eliminated by eventual champs St Louis in the first round. Kind of a risky pick with injuries of Chase Utley and Ryan Howard. Detroit I think wins the AL pennant due to Justin Verlander and the rest of the solid staff. Plus they got Prince Fielder and Miggy Cabrera and other rising stars. I give the advantage to the AL in the world series this year.
