Finally! The day we have all waited for!

Happy Opening Day everyone! This is the day we have all waited for since the end of October.  As you all get decked out in your favorite teams apparel, crack open an icy cold beverage, and sit down to watch today’s festivities, here are things to follow today and the rest of the season.

AMERICAN LEAGUE

Yankees, Rays, Red Sox, Blue Jays, Orioles

NATIONAL LEAGUE

WILD CARD

DIVISION SERIES

Diamondbacks over Reds

Angels over Yankees

Tigers over Rangers

CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES

Diamondbacks over Phillies

Tigers over Angels

WORLD SERIES

Tigers over Diamondbacks

Kirk Gibson and Alan Trammell try to win a world series against the team they won one with.  Cabrera and Fielder overpower D-Backs pitching en route to the franchise’s first World Championship since 1984.

AND THE WINNER IS…

NATIONAL LEAGUE

MVP

The wheels haven’t fallen off for one, stemming from the ’11 playoffs. The other just locked his career up with a huge deal and already has one NL MVP under his belt. David Freese and Joey Votto battle each other in the NL Central for ultimate individual supremacy.

Winner: David Freese

CY YOUNG

The man with the bionic arm stays healthy all year and dominates the NL East and the rest of his victims.  Clayton Kershaw has a stellar season in an attempt to repeat, but falls just short.

Winner: Stephen Strasburg

ROOKIE OF THE YEAR

After an early season call-up, Bryce Harper brings his swagger and his bat to the show.  Complete with +450 ft. home runs, Bryce hits over .300 and becomes a huge part why the Nats make the playoffs.

Winner: Bryce Harper

AMERICAN LEAGUE

MVP

No repeat for Verlander, Fielder hits more HRs than Cabrera, but Miguel hits for a better average and follows JV’s lead and nabs the 2nd AL MVP for the Tigers in as many years.

Winner: Miguel Cabrera

Cy Young

Jered was overshadowed last season because of Verlander’s night in and night out lights out performances.  This year, Weaver stays just as consistent and JV doesn’t have the same year as last. Weaver shines brighter for the Halos.

Winner: Jered Weaver

Rookie of the Year

Two highly touted signings with Yu Darvish and Yoenis Cespedes have solid rookie seasons, but lack in big league experience. One man has the experience and the stuff to look like a veteran this season

Winner: Matt Moore
