2010 MLB Regular Season Expert Picks Results

There were plenty of twists and turns in the 2010 season. (baseball-almanac.com)

What a season. Boston’s defensive strategy turned offensive in a hurry. The ghost of Steinbrenner’s checkbook could only buy a Wildcard birth. The Phillies have pretty much the best starting staff with Halladay and Oswalt in the fold.

So where did that get all of us? The Mariners messed up a bunch of us, as did the Yankees, but the Reds and Giants nullified any potential gains from their divisions.

But anyway, I’m sure you’re tired of banter, so without further suspense, like the kind only Bob Barker could build, the winner is …….. Mike C! How did he do it? Sweeping the AL division winners, and in order, helped.

It was certainly a fun season, even if the Red Sox didn’t make it into the playoffs. Check below to see the results, and how everyone finished.
