2010 MLB World Series Prediction

Play Ball! The 2010 major league baseball season starts this week and it’s time to look at our predictions to go to the World Series and win it all. There have been an abundance of off-season moves and free agent acquisitions by many teams to include the top contenders. After looking over every team and the changes they have been through it is time to look at the teams that we believe has the best chance to go to the World Series.

Let’s start with the National League and that means the defending champions deserve a look. The Philadelphia Phillies may have come up short last year against the Yankees but they just got better in the off-season. They traded and got one of the best pitchers in baseball when they landed Roy Halladay from the Toronto Blue Jays. That makes them the automatic favorite to win the National league. It’s too easy to pick the favorite so we are going with another team; the St. Louis Cardinals. They have the best hitter in baseball in Albert Pujols and gave him protection by bringing Matt Holliday back to St. Louis. With pitching and a deep bullpen and one of the best managers in the game we believe that St. Louis will go to the World Series. The latest mlb odds on St. Louis to win the National league are +400.

In the American league it is hard to believe that the World Series representative will come from anywhere but the American league East. With all due respect to the White Sox, Angels, Twins and other teams from the central and the west, but the East has the best teams. It starts with the defending Champion New York Yankees. They got stronger in the off-season by getting Curtis Granderson and Javier Vasquez and will make another run for a ring. The Red Sox also made a big splash in the free agent market and got John Lackey to make up one of the best pitching staffs in all of baseball. Finally the Tampa Bay Rays cannot be discounted and should be a contender in the race for a championship. Although the odds are not that great at +150 our selection to go to the World Series is the New York Yankees. They are simply the best team in baseball and show no signs of slowing down. Take the Yankees to get a shot at back to back titles.

In the 2010 Major League Baseball season we believe that the New York Yankees will take on the St. Louis Cardinals in the World Series. This will provide us with another great fall classic but when the dust has settled the New York Yankees will be raising another banner and celebrating another championship in the city that doesn’t sleep. The Yankees are a respectable +300 to win it all, check as many sportsbooks as possible to make sure that you get the best price on the teams that you think will go to and win the World Series. The 2010 MLB season is about to begin!
