For the second consecutive year, TheFantasyFix.com chose to make public our official staff predictions for the 2014 Major League Baseball season.

Here is the moment you’ve all been waiting for:

Ben Duronio Los Angeles Angels Detroit Tigers New York Yankees Tampa Bay Rays Boston Red Sox
Brett Talley Oakland Athletics Detroit Tigers Boston Red Sox Tampa Bay Rays Cleveland Indians

The Athletics, Tigers and Rays are the favorites to become division winners, with the Red Sox the only team that sticks out as a fit for one of the Wild Card spots.

The Dodgers, Cardinals and Nationals are as close to unanimous as you can get for the National League Division Champions, with the Braves and Giants are among the favorites to win the Wild Cards.

Staffer NL Champ AL Champ WS CHamp
Alan Harrison Cardinals Tigers Cardinals
Chris Garosi Dodgers Red Sox Dodgers
Andrew Miller Cardinals Rays Cardinals

Matt Moczygemba Cardinals Athletics Cardinals
Gerard Martin Dodgers Tigers Tigers
John Hoey Dodgers Yankees Yankees
Chris Kay Dodgers Tigers Tigers
Scott Barzilla Nationals Tigers Nationals
Ben Duronio Cardinals Rays Rays
Brett Talley Nationals Rays Nationals

This is where the predictions become interesting. A mix-and-match of Cardinals, Nationals and Dodgers selections out of the National League with a potpourri of teams coming out of the American League. At any rate, the majority of the staff believe the National League will come out on top again in twenty-fourteen.

And the staff awards:
