If you missed my 30-day, 30-team preseason evaluation series over the past month or so, THANKS FOR NOTHING. Just kidding. But after a lot of hard work, research, analysis and more, I've evaluated every single MLB team based on their 2012-13 offseason and projected my resulting predictions for this year.
You can find links to all 30 evaluations on each team name as you go through. Or, if you want the shortened version, just click through these slides to see a quick write-up of each division, its winners and how I see the playoff teams faring in the postseason.
There were some surprises—like the Kansas City Royals making the playoffs in the American League—and a lot of familiar faces (four of five NL playoff teams from 2012 are returning, according to my predictions).
No matter what, this will be a fantastic baseball season (aren't they all?), and I look forward to eating my words on a few predictions, while puffing my chest at most. Check out who will make the 2013 playoffs in MLB and why, plus your way-too-early World Series champions are revealed.
Pesky problems such as injuries, suspensions and slumps could completely ruin all my predictions, especially over the course of such a long season. So keep in mind that rosters and resulting performance will change by the time the postseason rolls around.
