From another thread.....I will say Posey won't finish in the top 5 catchers (not sure how bold but Epic Problem thinks so)

Senior Circuit Style.

3 players

Lo Cain hits 30 HR

Trevor Story top 5 at SS

Bryce goes into FA with a triple crown.

 

3 teams

Hated their off season, but that wasn't about the arms, Those hold up and its enough for the Mets to win 90 games. At worst, they're in the wild card race until late Sept.

Bullpen looks like a mess, not a big fan of their position player depth, For only the second time this century, the Cardinals finish under .500

Marlins and Pirates each lose at least 100 games

I don't understand the love for the Mets.  Yeah, their rotation can be lethal, but it can also be derailed by injury.  About that line-up, though...what was their team OBP last year?  Is it magically going to get better?  I don't see how with the corpse of Adrian Gonzalez and Todd Frazier.  I don't think the Mets win over 80.5 games and made a pretty good sized wager on that under.

Padres will be better than anybody expects, KC will be way worse and the Rangers will get off to a hideously bad start.  

Braves will be very much improved and a threat in 2019.  Acuna is ROY and by 2019 a candidate for MVP.  

State of Florida will combine for 200 losses.  

Giants pose a threat to win the NL West when Bumgarner returns.  Longoria will lead the way on offense.  Tampa fans will wonder why they even bother...again.  

Carlos Gonzalez will make it about a month before injury sidelines him, opening the door for David Dahl to re-enter relevance and remind us how great he was/is.  

Brandon Drury will love batting in New York.  He will no longer be an afterthought.

The Mariners will be in the hunt for the Wild Card until late August when the wheels just fall off.  Dan Vogelbach will be the best fat guy in baseball this summer.

Bruce Bochy fired (or allowed to gracefully retire) by the end of the year.

Both Vlad Guerrero Jr and Bo Bichette are playing in Toronto by the end of the year.

AJ Minter quickly takes over as Braves closer and ends up Top 5 in the NL in saves.

Anthony Rizzo is the NL MVP. He finishes Top Ten in HR/RBI/OBP, chips in double digit steals and Gold Glove defense.

Rhys Hoskins ends up hitting closer to Greg Gross than Greg Luzinski. 

Lewis Brinson is under the Mendoza line for his first one-hundred AB's, but Mattingly sticks with him, and he ends the season with 15 homeruns and 25 steals.

Robbie Ray has more K's and W's than Kershaw. 

Jesse Winker is a Top Twenty fantasy OF.

 

 

As far as teams:

Cincinnati plays +.500 well into August. Votto, Peraza, Duvall, the aforementioned Winker, and even Hamilton and Gennett, bludgeon their way through opposing pitching staffs.

Dodgers regress a dozen games, still win the division, but won't make it out of the NLDS.

Cubs win over 100 games. They had the best 2nd half record in the league after an understandably lethargic 1st half, and fixed their major weakness: a thin, overworked bullpen.

So what happened to Limp Ditka?

Someone reported him for an innocuous post. You know nothing about it? Seem to remember you in that thread. :coffee:

I have no idea what you are talking about.  Yes Ditka is a putz, but that is no reason to report him.

Padres will be better than anybody expects, KC will be way worse and the Rangers will get off to a hideously bad start.  

Padres 9-16
KC 5-16
Tex 8-17

Padres suck slightly less than KC/TEX but still suck. 

Quote

Braves will be very much improved and a threat in 2019.  Acuna is ROY and by 2019 a candidate for MVP.  

Acuña time, baby!  Braves are 12-10.  Not bad.
 

Quote

State of Florida will combine for 200 losses.  

30 losses so far and counting, fast.

Quote

Giants pose a threat to win the NL West when Bumgarner returns.  Longoria will lead the way on offense.  Tampa fans will wonder why they even bother...again.  

Slow start for Longoria but coming around.  Mac Williamson is a MAN CHILD!  Game below .500  Arizona will fade.

Quote

Carlos Gonzalez will make it about a month before injury sidelines him, opening the door for David Dahl to re-enter relevance and remind us how great he was/is.

:bowtie:

  

Quote

Brandon Drury will love batting in New York.  He will no longer be an afterthought.

:kicksrock:  Had a nice start, but he'll find it hard to regain the job with the young guns swatting.  Good utility guy to have, though.

Quote

The Mariners will be in the hunt for the Wild Card until late August when the wheels just fall off.  Dan Vogelbach will be the best fat guy in baseball this summer.

12-10, Vogelbach playing better, but only 2 HR.  Since Schwarber is no longer fat, Vogelbach still has a chance here.
