Baseball is back and that means it's time to make some fearless predictions.
With the shortened season anything can happen, but I'm not going to stray too far from my original picks for the season.
The Yankees will dominate (shocking that I would say that, I know) this season. I don't care if it's 10 games or 1,000 games or 60 games - they are the best team in baseball. They have looked great in preseason.
I've got the Yankees in the AL East, the Twins in the AL Central and the Astros in the AL West. I'll take the Tampa Bay Rays and the Oakland A's for the wildcards.
The Yankees will beat the Rays and the Astros will knock off the Twins, setting up the rematch from last year's ALCS. This time the Yankees will take it and go to the World Series.
In the NL, I'll take the Braves in the NL East, the Cardinals in the NL Central and the Dodgers in the NL West. The Nationals and the Brewers are the wildcards.
Then the Dodgers, who have also looked great in preseason, will beat the Nationals, the Cardinals will top the Braves with the Dodgers getting back to the World Series after beating the Cards.
In the World Series the Yankees will win their 28th championship in 6 games over the Dodgers (Is it the 70's again?). Book it!
Until next time, Go Yankees!
