2021 MLB Predictions: Standings and Playoffs

Beat LA?

The 2021 MLB predictions for the standings and World Champions: because we have nothing better to do.

Who will win the 2021 World Series? Opening Day is April 1.

Sometime around Halloween of this year, one team out of the 30 in Major League Baseball will hoist the World Series trophy, pop champagne, and get a parade. A lot of sports talking heads think that it will be the Los Angeles Dodgers, the 2020 World Series champs. Perhaps it will be then, but it may not even be a cakewalk for them within their own division.

Today, with the season just about to start, we will predict the final standings in each division. Then, because we intend to (probably) make complete asses of ourselves, we will predict the entire postseason. This is more of a therapeutic exercise for us than anything else, as the probability of getting everything correct is very low.

One thing we are not going to do this time around is give full standings predictions. We’re not that hardcore.
