TRP's 2005 MLB predictions

I am a complete nerd. The win and loss totals for MLB have been double-checked to ensure they are equal.

AL WEST:

Los Angeles of Anaheim 93-69 (stupid, stupid, stupid name)
Texas 90-72 (not yet...but they may win the next 3 after this)
Oakland 87-65
Seattle 76-86

AL CENTRAL:

Minnesota 95-67
Cleveland 86-76
Detroit 80-82
Chicago 79-83
Kansas City 66-96

AL EAST:

New York 94-68 (they'll start strong, then fade, but hold off Boston)
Boston 93-69
Baltimore 79-83 (overrated)
Toronto 77-85
Tampa Bay 65-97

NL WEST:

Los Angeles 89-73
San Diego 85-77 (underrated)
San Francisco 81-81 (age will get 'em)
Arizona 67-95
Colorado 53-109 (this is a major league team???)

NL CENTRAL:

St. Louis 97-65
Chicago 92-70
Houston 82-80
Milwaukee 80-82
Cincinnati 73-89
Pittsburgh 61-101

NL EAST:

Atlanta 100-62
New York 85-77
Florida 84-79
Philadelphia 72-90
Washington 69-93

AL PLAYOFFS:

Los Angeles of Anaheim defeats New York. (Sports media weeps uncontrollably.)
Minnesota defeats Boston. (Sports media weeps uncontrollably.)

Minnesota defeats Los Angeles of Anaheim.

NL PLAYOFFS:

Atlanta defeats Chicago.
St. Louis defeats Los Angeles.

Atlanta defeats St. Louis.

You know, I look at Atlanta's lineup, and I just see them scoring more runs than they give up. And although I'm putting my marriage at risk by predicting this, I am picking Atlanta over Minnesota in the World Series.

In my scorebook, what do I put when the Angels are playing? I put the city for every team except for New York or Chicago teams, where I put both city and nickname. But I'm afraid I'll have to put the abominable "Los Angeles of Anaheim" in my scorebooks now. UGH. Arte Moreno is an idiot for doing this.

My fiancee has pointed out that if I put the phrase "VEGAS PREDICTIONS" in this posting, I'll get a lot more traffic. I would never stoop to that level.

PAMELA ANDERSON NAKED.
