2012 MLB Expert Picks Results

"Pro Wrestling," NES

The regular season is now over, and it included two divisions decided on the final day. And it included another sizable September collapse, this time by Texas. Fortunately for the two-time defending AL champs, Texas is still hosting the Wildcard game. The Athletics and Orioles surprised everyone, while the Nationals and Reds didn’t catch everyone by surprise, but their position as the two best teams in baseball sure did. The defending champion Cardinals held off the Dodgers late, and the Red Sox were harder to swallow than peanuts to the allergic.

But I’m sure everyone is waiting to hear how our experts fared with their predictions. This time, it was quite close. So without further ado, the winner of the 2012 MLB Pick ‘Em is…Taylor. It was so close, Taylor won via correctly guessing the Astros to be the majors’ worst team in the tiebreaker, whereas Edward picked them as second-worst. The Yankees, Tigers and Giants all gave plenty of bonus points to many participants for guessing their seeds exactly.

So there you have it. Check below for the complete results and standings, and check back Friday for the start of the Playoffs Pick ‘Em edition.
