The 2009 Major League Baseball season is finally upon us after an extra long spring training due to the World Baseball Classic- (baseball’s version of the World Cup). The 1st game of the season is this Sunday night- Phillies vs. Braves.
Last season you will recall the national league’s Philadelphia Phillies beat the cinderella Tampa Bay Rays 4-1. Where the Rays a fluke, and who will be this year’s cinderella? If you’re not a big MLB fan you should know that unlike the other major sports, just making it to the playoffs is a significant accomplishment in only the division winners and 1 wild card advances. So a cinderella in this sport to make it to the postseason is more than just exceeding expectations.
Here are my predictions by League:
This year the Mets finally get to play in September, but the Cubs will have to wait at least another year for a title pushing it to 102 years (and counting).
World Series- Indians over Dodgers
