Today is opening day. I know the BoSox and A's had games in Japan last week but today is opening day for the majority of teams. How about some predictions of the division champs, wild cards, and award winners.

AL East - Boston Red Sox

AL Central - Detroit Tigers

AL West - Seattle Mariners

Wild Card - New York Yankees

AL MVP - Alex Rodriguez

AL Cy Young - Erik Bedard (Especially if the Mariners do win the West)

AL RoY - Evan Longoria

NL East - New York Mets

NL Central - Chicago Cubs

NL West - Arizona Diamondbacks

Wild Card - Atlanta Braves

NL MVP - Ryan Howard

NL Cy Young - Johan Santana

NL RoY - Kosuke Fukodome

Agree, disagree? Let's see some predictions. I love following baseball.

I'm not gonna predict but I'll just say I am a Mets fan, I'll always be a Mets fan and the Yankees can burn in hell.

Damn Cubs! Don't even start off the season right!

Well, ya win some, ya lose some.

I picked the Cubs correctly, but that's the only div winner I got. I'd say that Howard for NL MVP and Longoria for AL ROY are almost locks though. So my tracks record could get better when those awards are announced.
