OTTERS PICKS

So it is getting closer to the close of the season so it's time for me to start throwing some picks out on who I think will win it all. So............

In the AL East, I think the Red Sox will figure out a way to triumph over their dreaded rivals, the Yankees.
In the AL Central, I am picking the Tigers.
In the AL West, Texas will come out on top.

Overall, in the National League, I think the Detroit Tigers are going to come out on top.

I think the Phillies will take the NL East.
It will be close but I think that St Louis will pull out an NL Central victory over Milwaukee.
I think the Diamondbacks will come out on top of the NL West.

Overall in the National League, I think the Philadelphia Phillies are going to the World Series.

So if the World Series comes down between the Phillies and the Tigers, I'm going to have to go with the Tigers.
