2006 Major League Baseball Season Preview
A brand new baseball season has arrived. Can the White Sox repeat as World Series Champs? How will Johnny Damon adjust to being a Yankee? Will Barry Bonds pass the Babe? Check out these picks and predictions in Kidzworld's 2006 Major League Baseball season preview.
2006 MLB Preview - American League Picks and PredictionsThe race for playoff sports in the American League will be tighter than Jessica Simpson's jeans in 2006. The Toronto Blue Jays made major changes to their roster during the offseason by adding starting pitcher, A.J. Burnett and closer B.J. Ryan (not surprisingly, the Jays love players who use the initial "J" in their first name). Along with the Blue Jays, the Athletics, Angels, Indians, Red Sox, Yankees and White Sox all have a good chance to win 90 games. With only four playoff spots up for grabs, expect the playoff race to come down to the final weekend of the season. You can also expect the rivalry between the Red Sox and the Yankees to be even nastier in '06 with long time Sox centerfielder, Johnny Damon, leaving Boston to suit up for the Evil Empire. Don't be suprised to see the the odd bench-clearing brawl or beanball during the teams' 19 games with each other.
Kidzworld's 2006 Picks
2006 MLB Preview - National League Picks and PredictionsThe only real certainties in the National League are that the St. Louis Cardinals will repeat as division champs and the Chicago Cubs will continue their long, dark history of futility. The Los Angeles Dodgers have a new manager with Grady Little and an upgraded roster, so they should make some noise in the N.L. West, while 2006 could also be the year the New York Mets bring an end to the Atlanta Braves' 14 year streak as champs of the National League East. If you're looking for a sleeper pick to grab a playoff spot, go with the Milwaukee Brewers - a young team that's on the rise, or the Philadelphia Phillies, who have some great bats and decent pitching.
