2015 Season Predictions Post: Corey


Every March gives us the start of Spring, March Madness and hope for the fans of all 30 MLB teams. That’s right, a new season and a fresh slate of baseball is just around the corner. This MLB offseason was one of the more exciting that I can remember and I can’t wait to see the type of summer that follows. I missed pretty big on a couple of my playoff teams last year so I’m hoping this season I can do better. This is how I see things playing out in 2015.


1. Boston Red Sox
2. Toronto Blue Jays
3. New York Yankees
4. Baltimore Orioles
5. Tampa Bay Rays

1. Cleveland Indians
2. Detroit Tigers*
3. Chicago White Sox
4. Kansas City Royals
5. Minnesota Twins

1. Seattle Mariners
2. Los Angeles Angels*
3. Oakland Athletics
4. Houston Astros
5. Texas Rangers


1. Washington Nationals
2. Miami Marlins
3. New York Mets
4. Atlanta Braves
5. Philadelphia Phillies

1. St. Louis Cardinals
2. Pittsburgh Pirates*
3. Chicago Cubs
4. Cincinnati Reds
5. Milwaukee Brewers

1. Los Angeles Dodgers
2. San Diego Padres*
3. San Francisco Giants
4. Arizona Diamondbacks
5. Colorado Rockies

*Denotes Wild Card teams


Wild Card Games:
Detroit over Los Angeles
Pittsburgh over San Diego

Division Series:
Seattle over Detroit
Cleveland over Boston
Washington over Pittsburgh
Los Angeles over St. Louis

Seattle over Cleveland
Washington over Los Angeles

World Series:
Washington Nationals over Seattle Mariners

I’m banking on the health of Harper, Rendon, Werth and Zimmerman to get that Nationals lineup over the hump. Their rotation is certainly built for a deep playoff run and I think the addition of Scherzer is what they really needed. A good run though for a real solid Mariners team.


1. Mike Trout
2. Hanley Ramirez
3. Miguel Cabrera

1. Yasiel Puig
2. Giancarlo Stanton
3. Paul Goldschmidt

1. Masahiro Tanaka

AL Rookie of the Year
1. Carlos Rodon

2. Joey Votto
3. Ryan Zimmerman

AL Bold Predictions

1. Anthony Gose leads the AL with 56 SBs.

2. Chris Carter and Evan Gattis hit more homers (75) than any other duo in AL.

3. Alex Rodriguez plays 120 games for the Yankees, hits 25 HR and drives in 85.

4. Andrew Miller leads the AL with 46 saves.

5. One of my favorite breakouts, Avisail Garcia, hits .300 with 25 HRs.

NL Bold Predictions

1. Dexter Fowler leads not just the NL but all the Majors with 120 runs scored.

2. Matt Harvey, back from TJ surgery, leads the NL with 238 strikeouts.

3. Anthony DeSclafani emerges as #2 SP for the Reds with a 3.50 ERA and 160 Ks.

4. Through the darkness of a poor Diamondbacks season, Paul Goldschmidt wins the NL Triple Crown.

5. Mike Morse drives in 100 RBI for the Marlins.
