MLB has its Spring Training pre-season going strong for all thirty teams. Meanwhile, the World Baseball Classic is about to be in full-swing to help highlight worldly talents; and the WBC helps MLB showcase their American stars against the world-stage.
On April 2, there will be three games that start the season, beginning with New York Yankees v Tampa Bay (Devil) Rays at 1:00ET and culminating with a primetime game of Chicago Cubs v Saint Louis Cardinals at 8:30ET.
I grew up playing baseball and have had the privilege of being within a commute of OPACY. This year seems like a good one for the Orioles, but will it be enough for my hometown team to make it all the way?
Here’s my prediction for the 2017 MLB Season:
East: Toronto Blue Jays
Central: Cleveland Indians
West: Texas Rangers
Wild Card: Baltimore Orioles
East: Washington Nationals
Central: Chicago Cubs
West: San Francisco Giants
Wild Card: New York Mets
The outcome of the All-Star Game will give the American League the advantage during the World Series.
Here is how the postseason will play out:
Orioles over Rangers
Jays over Indians
Jays over Orioles
Cubs over Mets
Nationals over Giants
Cubs over Nationals
Jays over Cubs in 6, triggering another century-long drought.
I cannot wait to hear all about how I am wrong.
Thanks for stopping by,
