2013 MLB Expert Picks

The 2013 MLB season is well underway, and it looks to be a good one. Houston is in the American League. Josh Hamilton is with the Angels. Victor Martinez is back. Toronto and the Dodgers look to impress after their blockbuster trades. At least one interleague series all season long will definitely make things interesting as well.

Our writers are celebrating the beginning of the season by bringing you our picks as to how everything will turn out. Scoring for the picks is as follows:

  • Correctly guessing a team to make the playoffs is worth one point, or two points instead for correctly guessing a division winner.
  • Correctly guessing the #1 seed in each league is worth five points, then four points for correctly guessing the #2 seed, and so on.
  • Correctly guessing which #1 seed will finish with the best record in the majors is worth two points.
  • In the event any of us finish tied, the first tiebreaker will be picking the team that finishes with MLB’s worst record. The next tiebreaker is MLB’s second-worst record, then third worst, then the most teams in the worst three in any order, and finally lowest combined record of all three picks.

So with the scoring out of the way, the picks are below. Be sure to check them all out, and come back when the season is over to see how everyone did.
