Top 10 Right Now – Designated Hitter

This list is getting increasingly difficult to compile as more and more teams opt to use the designated hitter spot as more of a rotation than a set position.  Only thirteen hitters qualified based on our criteria (see below).  This could very well be the final DH top 10 list depending on how 2020 shakes…

2019 Postseason Awards and Playoff Predictions

The end of the season is a great time for a do-over.  While my preseason predictions don’t look all that bad (a review piece coming after the playoffs conclude), I still missed on a few postseason teams.  Because of that, it’s time to reshuffle the bracket and awards predictions.  Let’s go! NL Wild Card Brewers…

Standing, Playoffs and Awards Predictions – 2019

I have been confident; I have been cocky.  I have been attempting to go all “Sports Illustrated” and predict a 2019 World Series win for the Phillies several years out.  Shortly after they traded Cole Hamels to Texas in 2015, I looked at the farm system and declared Philadelphia 2019 champs.  Even as recently as…

Conceptualizing a Noah Syndergaard trade to the Padres

There’s been a lot of talk lately about the Padres looking to add a front-end starting pitcher, specifically Noah Syndergaard of the New York Mets.  With a new general manager in Queens – one carrying no track record in this role that we can base potential moves on – along with the unpredictable AJ Preller…

Awards and Playoff Predictions: 2018

When a game heads to extra innings, it is commonly referred to as “bonus baseball.”  What we were lucky enough to experience today – the first two-tiebreaker day in MLB history – was truly “bonus baseball.” On a day that we were supposed to be able to make our predictions, turned into a game of…

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…

2018 Hall of Fame Ballot

This year’s post is simple – who I would have on my Hall of Fame ballot, if I had the honor and why.  If you’re looking for more in-depth detail, check out last year’s entry (here). To start, let’s dive into how I think the real voting will play out this year and follow it…

Awards and Playoff Predictions

Articles like these as they relate to playoff predictions are basically useless since baseball is such a game of who’s hot at the right moment, but it’s fun nonetheless.  But, mix that with some actual logic behind the major awards and there becomes more of a reason to put into print which team will win…

The guys over at Yahoo! Sports put a great piece together identifying the 25 best possible trade candidates. You can read that article here. We are going to take it a step further by using the players from their list and arranging them to the order we see the likelihood of them getting moved plus…
