Note from Barndon: Your prediction thread will be up at 4:00 PM EST. Please post predictions there, not here!

AL East Winner Yankees

AL Central Winner Twins

AL West Winner A's

AL Wild Card Red Sox

NL East Winner Phillies

NL Central Winner Reds

NL West Winner Giants

NL Wild Card Braves

ALCS Yankees over Red Sox
NLCS Phillies over Giants

World Series Yankees over Phillies- boring, but that's my take

World Series MVP Sabathia

AL/NL MVPs Youkilis/ Pujols
AL/NL Cy Youngs Trevor Cahill/ Roy Halladay
AL/NL Rookies of Year Jeremy Hellickson/ Freddie Freeman
AL/NL Managers of Year Bob Geren/ Fredi Gonzalez

Most wins/losses at end of regular season Phillies/ Pirates

AL Surprise Player Justin Smoak
NL Surprise Player Ross Ohlendorf- I still believe in you.

AL Disappointment James Shields- he's out of the rotation by the All-Star break
NL Disappointment David Wright- in 2010 he sacrificed patience for power, but the increasing Ks are going to catch up with him, and when the Mets collapse around, he's going to get stuck with the sort of 'failure' tag that haunted Arod for so long.

Yankees Surprise Player Granderson- no surprise to regular readers, I love his new swing.
Yankees Disappointing Player Swisher- he had a great first half last year, but I don't think his new approach will hold up.

Bold Prediction: Phil Hughes- 210 IP, 1.21 WHIP, 6.4K/9
