2017 MLB Predictions

Well let's see how wrong I end up being.

AL East
1. Orioles
2. Red Sox
3. Blue Jays
4. Yankees
5. Rays

AL Central
1. Indians - Best Record
2. Royals
3. Tigers
4. Twins
5. White Sox

AL West
1. Mariners
2. Astros - Wild Card
3. Rangers - Wild Card
4. Angels
5. Athletics

The AL will be interesting with some teams having deceptively less than awesome records. The east and west seem to have a good bit of parity which should make for some tight races. I think in both cases the teams will beat up on each other so much that someone less expected to win, in this case the Orioles and Mariners, will slip by and win the divisions.

AL MVP: Mookie Betts
AL CY: Felix Hernandez
AL ROY: Andrew Benintendi

WC winner: Astros
ALCS: Indians over Mariners

NL East
1. Nationals
2. Mets - Wild Card
3. Marlins
4. Braves
5. Phillies

NL Central
1. Cubs - Best Record
2. Pirates
3. Cardinals
4. Reds
5. Brewers

NL West
1. Dodgers
2. Giants - Wild Card
3. Diamondbacks
4. Rockies
5. Padres

The NL I see as having fewer wide open races with the top teams being clearer from about June forward. I fully expect the Cubs to continue tearing through the NL again this year, winning the central by a double digit margin. My hope for the Braves is to build on the strong finish they had last year and continue to improve and develop prospects. I will be happy if they finish with less than 90 losses. 

NL MVP: Yoenis Cespedes
NL CY: Noah Syndergaard
NL ROY: Dansby Swanson

WC winner: Mets
NLCS: Nationals over Cubs

World Series: Nationals over Indians in 6

Still around

Hey guys. It's been three months since my last post. I guess I'm taking a hiatus from posting stuff. Part of that is a lack of things to post about. I haven't been buying or trading much for the last few months, though I do have a few things that I haven't scanned yet. But I've really just not had the motivation to post either. I am still reading your blogs and commenting occasionally. Hopefully I can find the motivation and the material to get back into it sometime.

I hope you guys are having a great 2017!
