The season is about to begin… better make my picks that will inevitably suck!
I like the Mets staff and Cespedes… and I don’t trust the Nationals.
The Defending Champs are just better than everyone else.
LA and San Francisco will battle it out all year. The Dodgers will be healthier and survive.
The two most consistent organizations in the NL meet again.
Not a homer pick. They will outlast the Blue Jays who will give my beloved fits.
They came within a swing of winning it all last year and improved. Most of the division is rebuilding and they will win 100.
Your guess is as good as mine in the AL West. I am not buying Houston’s pitching. Texas’ depth makes me nervous. The Angels stink. The A’s are rebuilding.
Seattle might win by default.
Big markets fighting out for the big prize. Kershaw will keep hearing about his October failures until he clinches the big one. (Not the Division Series!)
Boston’s pitching and Cleveland’s depth will force this rematch.
For the first time since 1977 and 1978, we will have the same two teams win the pennant in back to back years.
It is Cleveland’s year.
