2012 MLB Preview & Predictions

With North American Opening day for the MLB just two days away, it's time for my annual predictions. So, after an off-season which saw heavy hitters run from the NL Central to fortify the American League, and the Marlins spend a huge chunk of change, the question becomes, who will win the 2012 World Series? Will it be the powerful Tigers, or the reloaded Yankees? Will it be a team that comes from the best rivalry in the game now, Rangers-Angels, or will the champion come from the ever so challenging NL East? All I know is that with the 5th playoff team added to each league, the races just got a whole lot crazier!
*The win-loss records were voted on by the staff here at BlueJaysPlus, but the playoff scenarios are my predictions.
