Here we are, finally, the Eve of Opening Day!

AL Central - Cleveland

AL East - Boston

AL West - Houston

Wild Cards - Yankees, Twins

 

 

NL Central - St. Louis

NL East - Philadelphia

NL West - LA Dodgers

Wild Cards - Washington Atlanta

 

AL Champ: Astros

NL Champ: Phillies

World Series Champ: Astros

 

 

AL MVP - Mookie Betts 

AL Cy Young - Trevor Bauer

AL Rookie of the Year - Vlad Guerrero Jr

 

NL MVP - Bryce Harper

NL Cy Young - Aaron Nola

NL Rookie of the Year - I was going with Nick Senzel but with his most recent injury, I'm going with Touki Toussant.

 

 

Your Turn... Get your picks in...

Lindor suffered an "acute" left ankle sprain while running the bases. No timetable for a return.

AL East: Yankees

AL Central: Cleveland

AL West: Houston

Wild Cards: Tampa Bay, Boston (though I'm more confident in the Rays than Red Sox)

Bold Prediction: Angels finish with the best non-playoff record in this scenario and could be the playoff spoiler with a couple mid-year moves.

 

NL East: Washington

NL Central: Milwaukee

NL West: Dodgers

Wild Cards: Colorado, St. Louis

Bold predictions: NL East and NL Central combine for 2 90-win teams with 9 of the 10 teams in the two divisions posting 75+ wins. Other bold prediction is that the Cubs finish last in the NL Central.

 

NL Champs: Brewers

AL Champs: Astros

World Series: Astros over Brewers in five

 

AL MVP: Mike Trout

AL CY: Gerrit Cole

AL ROY: Eloy Jimenez

 

NL MVP: Nolan Arenado

NL CY: Max Scherzer

NL ROY: Victor Robles
