MLB 2013: Projected Standings

My projected WAR for all 30 rosters played an integral part in my win-loss totals. I gave a little extra love to the AL West/NL East upper echelon teams, as they're likely to beat up on the two worst clubs in MLB. (Astros/Marlins)

Note: I originally had the Yankees ranked 1st, but I had to drop them in my rankings due to Teixeira/Granderson at risk to miss their fair share of games. A few other slight changes due to injuries.


AL East

1. Rays 88-74 (y)

2. Red Sox 86-76 (w)

3. Yankees 85-77

4. Blue Jays 85-77

5. Orioles 77-85

AL CENTRAL

1. Tigers 98-64 (y)

2. Royals 83-79

3. Indians 78-84

4. White Sox 77-85

5. Minnesota Twins 66-96

AL WEST

1. Angels 93-69 (y)

2. Rangers 92-70 (w)

3. A's 84-78

4. Mariners 71-91

5. Astros 60-102

NL EAST

1. Nationals 92-70 (y)

2. Braves 91-71 (w)

3. Phillies 81-81

4. Mets 69-93

5. Marlins 60-102

NL CENTRAL

1. Reds 93-69 (y)

2. Cardinals 89-73 (w)

3. Brewers 83-79

4. Pirates 76-86

5. Cubs 71-91

NL WEST

1. Dodgers 87-75 (y)

2. Giants 86-76

3. Diamondbacks 85-77

4. Rockies 75-87

5. Padres 69-93

The AL East/NL West should be fascinating races with multiple teams vying for playoff berths. if my projections come to pass, we'll see a lot of the same faces once again in October. (The Angels, Red Sox replacing the A's and Orioles, and the Dodgers replacing the defending champions.)

Most Improved: Red Sox 17 W's, Jays 12 W's, Royals 11 W's, Cubs 11 W's, Tigers, Rockies 11 W's, 10 W's, Indians 10 W.

Biggest Declines: Orioles - 16 L's, A's 10 L's, Marlins 9 L's, Giants 8 L's, White Sox 8 L's.
