MLB Predictions: AL East


The TBOH staff was polled for their predictions on the expected order of finish in each of the six MLB divisions, the outcome of the MLB playoffs, and the winners of some of the major MLB awards for the coming 2015 season.

Below are the results for the expected order of finish in the American League East. Much as with the AL Central, this was another close race. We ultimately gave the Boston Red Sox the nod in a close battle with the Toronto Blue Jays.

The defending champion Baltimore Orioles got a first place vote, but also received scattered votes from 2nd-4th places. And while the New York Yankees also received votes as high as 2nd, they were mostly lower, and finish as our 4th place team in this division.

Again, one thing that was a near unanimous opinion came at the bottom of the division, where all but one TBOH staffer picked the Tampa Bay Rays to finish in last place. Losing Joe Maddon, David Price and others will do that.
