NL East: Philadelphia Phillies
NL Central: Milwaukee Brewers
NL West: San Francisco Giants
NL Wild Card: St. Louis Cardinals

AL East: New York Yankees
AL Central: Minnesota Twins
AL West: Oakland A's
AL Wild Card: Boston Red Sox

NLCS: Phillies over Brewers
ALCS: Yankees over Red Sox
World Series: Phillies over Yankees

NL MVP: Albert Pooh Holes
AL MVP: Miguel Cabrera
NL Cy Young: Roy Halladay
AL Cy Young: David Price
NL Rookie of the Year: Domonic Brown
AL Rookie of the Year: Mike Moustakas
NL Manager of the Year: Ron Roenicke
AL Manager of the Year: Bob Geren
NL Comeback Player of the Year: Javier Vazquez
AL Comeback Player of the Year: Justin Morneau

Note: I looked back at last year's predictions and couldn't figure out a winner. I had the most playoff teams with 6 (if you include my late change to Giants). Several of us had King Felix as Cy Young Award winner, but Master Bates was the only one with two individual award winners correct (both Cy Youngs). Nails got the incredibly difficult Comeback Player of the Year correct (Tim Hudson) and Freedo was the only one who had both the Rangers and Giants in the playoffs, and he even had the Giants winning a round.
