  7. New York Yankees
  8. Baltimore Orioles

  10. Chicago White Sox


I guess now is a good time to make my first prediction for this year's playoffs so here goes:

In the American League East, as much as I hate them, I'd have to say that the Yankees will pull that out out.
In the AL Central, the Chicago White Sox will come out on top.
In the AL West, it will be the Texas Rangers.

The American League Championship I think will end up being between Chicago and Texas and I think that if it came down to these 2 teams, Chicago would come out on top, barely.

In the National League East, Washington will take the pennant.
Cincinnati will win in the NL Central.
San Francisco will win the NL West.

In the National League Championship, the Nationals and the Giants will fight it out until the end and Washington will come out on top.

So, in the World Series, the AL will be represented by the White Sox and the NL will be represented by the Nationals and the overall championship will go to the Chicago White Sox.
