OK, I’m feeling a little tardy here; the Jays have already wrapped up their opening series and I’ve not yet posted my AL predictions. So rather than continue to labor away at my rather lengthy and in depth analyses of each team which I’d started on, I’ll give you hear a capsule summary of my outlook for the 2016 American League tallies.
If you wonder about any particular team or my reasoning, drop a line or add a comment and I’ll expand upon it. but for now, let’s agree that the Houston Astros are the top pick of most experts including Sports Illustrated which pick them to win it all (but admit to only having one right pick in the past 20 years.) Do I agree? See for yourself.
Texas 87 wins
Cleveland 88 wins
New York 86
Tampa Bay 69
So we happily project the Jays repeating as division champs, joining the also-repeating Rangers, as well as the Indians and the Tigers hosting either the Yanks or the Tigers in the Wild Card.
We’ll look at how that might play out, as well as the picks for individual bests, next time out!
