It’s Opening Day and we’re going Wall to Wall baseball coverage.
We kicked it off earlier with 5 Predictions from the desk of the Dogg, and I have to tell you…I’m not too impressed. The dude does love Ohtani, so deserves points for loyalty, but there is a better chance I write my next blog from the moon, than Ohtani winning a Triple Crown.
I’ve been doing nothing but listening to fanstasy baseball podcasts and studying rosters for the past month, so I’m ready to unleash my:
2019 BOLD MLB Predictions
Orioles will break the all time record for losses. Not much more to say there…this team is straight trash
I agree that Vladdy Jr (incidentally, not actually a “Jr”) will be great, but he’ll be second in Rookie of the Year voting to Eloy Jiminez. This guy is such a stud, the White Sox will actually be good again next year.
Ronald Acuna will go 30/30 this year…at least. Swiping that many bags may be tough if he’s hitting cleanup, but the dude is THAT good. By this time next year he’s a slam dunk for universally recognized top 5 player in baseball. And he’s 21. Unreal.
Rafael Devers– a bennygloves fave…seriously he stans him (am I using that correctly)- will hit 30+ dongs, and will be well on his way to being the 2nd best 3B in the AL, after….
Alex Bregman will better his .286-105-31-103 season. More to come on him tomorrow.
Eduardo Rodriguez will finish with a bunch of wins (which don’t matter), but will finally get over 170 Innings, and I’m calling for 200 K’s and a 3.30 ERA or better.
Sorry Dogg…Philly is a smaller than Santoro field (s/o West Medford Hillside LL). Bryce Harper is going to hit 50 Bombs. And his Batting average literally doesn’t matter, because his OBP will always be over .400. He’s a certified S.T.U.D in 2019. Check out this home run…with a BROKEN BAT.
Daniel Murphy is going to win the NL Batting title because, well….Colorado.
My prediction was negative about them last year, and I managed to be correct. But I’m no fool. Judge- Stanton- Sanchez will combine for over 120HR’s (!) this year. Oh, and over 500 K’s.
Kershaw will overcome injury to make 25 starts, with a sub-3.00 ERA, but he won’t be LA’s best pitcher. That’s Walker Buehler. He’s about to enter stardom.
I’m coming with Division, League and Award picks tomorrow…..
