AL Bold Predictions

  1. Judge and Stanton give us a summer like Mantle and Maris in ’61 (Both hit over 50 HR)
  2. Jorge Soler belts 31 HR and is a top 10 fantasy OF in the AL.
  3. Billy Hamilton steals 80 bases. The Royals ran like crazy last year and Billy won’t stop whenever he happens to reach base.
  4. Jose Berrios competes for the Cy Young and Ks 220 with a 2.95 ERA
  5. I’m going back to the well on Yoan Moncada. He breaks out and has a 25/25 season.

NL Bold Predictions

  1. Mets have 3 SPs in the Cy Young race as Thor, deGrom and Wheeler each K over 200 and have ERAs under 3.
  2. Michael Conforto leads the NL in HR with 43.
  3. Yasiel Puig is a top 5 player in the NL and puts together his first 30 homer 100 RBI season. I’ll project a .281/353/.503 season with 33 HR and 102 RBI and chips in 16 SB. (Bonus: The Reds come a game short of the wild card but have a huge year offensively)
  4. Ross Stripling wins 20 games for the Dodgers.
  5. Garrett Hampson bats .290 and steals 40 bases as the regular 2nd basemen for the Rockies.
