It’s time for our 2011 MMO Staff Predictions!

This year, sixteen of us will look into our crystal balls and try to predict all the happenings of the 2011 Baseball Season.

We will have three parts again this year:

1. 2011 Division Winners and Postseason – 12:00 PM

It looks like most of us agree that the Red Sox is the team to beat in the AL East, with the Twins getting widespread support in the Central division. Based on what we think, the AL West could be a heated battle between the Rangers, Angels and the A’s this season, with a slight edge to the Halos.

Over in the NL East, the Phillies seem to rule the roost, but I’m thinking the Braves can squeak it out this year. None of us had the Mets winning the division, but five us including me do see them potentially winning a Wild Card. The Reds got a lot of support in the NL Central, while the Giants were an overwhelming favorite in the West.

Incidentally, the bold lettering indicates the ALCS and NLCS champs.

Most of us see the Red Sox going all they way, but after bowing out early last postseason, I see the Reds building on that and surprising everyone in 2011.

Let us know your predictions in the comments!
