February 28, 2012 Leave a comment

Tailgate Talk predicts the winners of each division and the wild cards:

AL West: Texas Rangers- More complete team then the Angels, lose CJWilson but can replace him with Yu Darvish

AL Central: Detroit Tigers- With the addition of Prince Fielder, lineup could be the best in the league. MVP Justin Verlander leads an experienced pitching core

AL East: NY Yankees- If Yankees can stay healthy, will be in good shape to beat out the Red Sox for the division. Fixed pitching problems this off-season.

AL Wild Cards– LA Angels of Anaheim and Boston Red Sox

NL West: Arizona Diamondbacks- Better depth to the starting rotation than the SF Giants. Will be a fun division race to watch.

NL Central: St. Louis Cardinals- They lose Albert Pujols but will look to replace him with Lance Berkman.  Pitching staff is much improved with Adam Wainwright’s return from injury

NL East: Philadelphia Phillies- Won 102 games last year, brought in Jim Thome in case Ryan Howard injury is more serious.

NL Wild Cards: Atlanta Braves and S.F. Giants
