Preseason Predictions

{Editor's note:  Following post is from Ruben}
-------------------------------------------------
I'm excited to become a regular contributor to this blog.   While Reg will continue to focus on umpiring and rules, my emphasis will be on MLB happenings.  Among other things, I plan on at least doing monthly MLB power ranking along with commentary on any teams that have moved significantly.   I did the initial one a couple of weeks ago, and will do a February one shortly.

Today I am going to share a few preseason predictions.
AMERICAN LEAGUE

East - Boston
Central - Minnesota
West - Oakland (!)

WORLD SERIES


Oakland over Colorado.... in 6


I know... everybody is expecting a Philly/Red Sox Fall Classic.  But nobody had Giants/Rangers last year, so I may as well go out on a limb.  


But I would much rather see the Red Sox and Phillies.
