2020 has been a tough year to navigate in sports. Especially baseball that was in a battle between owners and players as the MLB season stetted to get farther and farther away. However we got it together and here we are with a 60 game season. Full of surprises and exiting moments this season is one we will never forget. Here are my official 2020 MLB predictions.
AL Wild Card Predictions
2. A's 7. White Sox White Sox win 2 to 1
3. Twins 6. Astros Twins win 2 to 0
4. Indians 5. Yankees Yankees win 2 to 1
The AL wildcard games all go down in 2 games except for the White Sox A's series which goes down to the wire with the white sox winning. I would just like to mention the pitching in these wild card games. You have guys like Shane Bieber, Lucas Giolito, Gerrit Cole, Blake Snell, Hyun Jin Ryu, Kenta Maeda, Zack Grienke and more. That means that these series is clearly going to be very dependent on pitching.
NL wildcard Predictions
We get a lot of good matchups here with the same look as the AL Wild Card outcomes. You might see some blowouts too with a few lopsided matchups. If i had to pick the best series here it is defiantly the Cardinals padres one. Lets not forget that the Cards made the NLCS last year. These NL wildcard series won't disappoint.
AL Divisional Round Predictions
7 White sox 3. Twins White Sox win 3 to 2
Wow we've got some great matchups here. The Yankees take down the Rays in a closely decided series. Then the White Sox take down their divisional foe the twins. This is going to be so close as all of these teams have played so well this season. In fact the series between the White Sox and Twins was split even this year. This sets us up for an amazing ALCS.
NL Divisional Round predictions
This will be a great NLDs with some more amazing teams. You get Kerhaw at Clevinger, and Yu Darvish at the Braves offense. This should be close but in the end the two clear top teams come out on top.
AL Championship Series Predictions
7 White Sox 5. Yankees White Sox win 4 to 3
The White Sox beat the Yankees. You heard it right. The White Sox Miracle run continues as they barely beat the Bronx sluggers in 7. This is the first time the White Sox make the World Series since 2005.
NL Championship Series Predictions
The Dodgers beat the Braves to move on to the world series for the third time in four years. Its a well played series but the dodgers are jut too much with super team Power.
The 2020 World Series Prediction
The Miracle run ends for the White Sox as the Dodgers dethrone them and win the world series in 5 games. This should be a very entertaining series, but it the end its The Dodgers who are World Series Champs. The 3rd times the charm I guess as the best dodgers team yet finally can say they did it. Mookie Betts is World Series MVP as the Dodgers win it all.
