MLB predictions

OK, so I'm 49 minutes late with this, as Atlanta are now (presumably) in the 3rd inning. But I have finished compiling my super-secret formula, super-scientific recipe (hint - there's a lot of hand-waving and regression to the mean involved), and here are my predictions for the upcoming MLB season.

AL East - Boston

Best Division: AL East. Without a doubt. Three of the best five or six teams in the game are battling it out here, and one of them won't make the playoffs.

Closest Division: AL Central. Any one of the five teams could finish first, any one of the five teams could finish last.
