2018 American League Preview – Quick Notes
This year, we’re looking at either the New York Yankees or Houston Astros going to the World Series. The Yankees are loaded from top to bottom. At the same time, so too are the Astros. We’ve picked both teams to win their respective divisions. In the AL Central, we see the Cleveland Indians as repeating.
The teams that have the best shot at getting a wild card berth are the Boston Red Sox, Minnesota Twins, and Los Angeles Angels. Also, the Seattle Mariners and Toronto Blue Jays may be able to sneak in.
Of those teams, we’re projecting the Red Sox and Twins to be in the playoff mix. In the wild card game, Boston beats Minnesota and goes on to play the Yankees, while the Astros and Indians battle it out.
Our 2018 American League preview sees the Yankees going onto the championship series. We think that they will meet the Astros. In a tight series that goes seven, the Yankees take the ALCS and go on to play in the World Series.
