Crystal Ball Shows All-L.A. Series In 2009
We always like to look ahead at Baseball America. Our Major League Preview doesn't just focus on 2006, but also gazes three years into the future. In this space in 2002, I correctly predicted that the Astros would reach the 2005 World Series. Alas, I had them defeating the Mariners, who wound up winning just 63 games. I did forecast that the Braves, Padres and Yankees would capture division titles, though I also projected that the Athletics, Cubs and Twins would join them in the playoffs.
