2018 MLB Opening Day Starting Pitchers – Ranked

Because everybody loves a good ranking, here we list every 2018 Opening Day starting pitcher with how we project them to fair this season in relation to each other.  There are two Clayton’s, two sleeper top 10 Cy Young guys, an otherwise were-it-not-for-injury 5th/spot starter and several bounce back and breakout candidates.  Overall, we project…

Standings, Playoff and Awards Predictions – 2018

Well, we can’t wait forever for the remaining free agents to sign (as hard as we tried), so it’s time to roll out the predictions as rosters currently stand.  In previous years, we’ve correctly predicted breakouts of teams and players (nobody else had the Indians being good entering 2016 nor Trevor Story as their ROY…

Top 10 Right Now – Right Fielders

While third base may be the deepest, right field is nothing to scoff at with tons of power (Stanton), guys coming off injury-hampered seasons (Harper, Martinez) and otherwise productive players who either had down years or entering their decline (Betts, Piscotty, CarGo, Bautista).  Lastly, there are several right fielders who enjoyed breakouts (Schebler, Haniger, Santana,…

Top 10 Right Now – Catchers

We’re now fully in transition from the old guard to the new, especially once Buster Posey gets slowly phased out of the position.  Several exciting young catchers could soon challenge for a top 10 spot. A new list will be published each Monday leading up to pitchers and catchers reporting in February. The lists will…

Top 10 Right Now – First Baseman

A traditionally deep position got even deeper in ’17 with breakouts from Cody Bellinger, Justin Smoak, Logan Morrison, Josh Bell, Joey Gallo and Yonder Alonso.  Plus, all the usual suspects (save for Matt Carpenter and Miguel Cabrera) turned in predictably big campaigns. A new list will be published each Monday leading up to pitchers and…

Top 10 Right Now – Designated Hitters

Annually the most underrepresented group simply because only half the teams use a DH and from there only a handful have guys who would be considered a primary DH.  With that, we were still able to fill the 10-spot ranking. A new list will be published each Monday leading up to pitchers and catchers reporting…

In the past, we’ve started with the players lists, but this season we’re going to kick things off with executives followed by managers. A new list will be published each Monday leading up to pitchers…
