MLB Projections and Predictions

The start to the 2017 baseball season is just around the corner.  With the start to any season comes the countless predictions from every website, tout, and hack.  As luck would have it, I fall into all three of those categories.  So, without further delay, here is my best guess at each team’s win total and projected finish:

And now the awards.  They are all but impossible to get right.  But it can’t hurt to give it a try!

Awards:

AL MVP: 1. Mookie Betts (Trout will likely put up better advanced stats to be a no-brainer but I just can’t see the media voting him MVP again).  2. Mike Trout
