2018 MLB Season

Recommended Posts

Atlanta has a 6 game lead in the East. They just had a pretty ugly showing in St Louis, but at least managed to split the series 2-1. They play the Phillies, who are 6 games back, in a 4 game series, then the Mets for 3, and close the season with a 3 game series in Philly. Meanwhile the Nats are almost caught up to the Phillies for second in the East.

 

The Braves will find a way to collapse. After all, Atlanta's sports tradition must endure.

Showalter's out in Baltimore after the season.  Had a great run, is they guy that was responsible for bring baseball relevancy back to Baltimore, and could have maybe been an asset during the rebuild.  But I can see the logic behind having a new voice to run the club during the new era.

 

As long as Duquette is gone too I won't be too upset.

Predictions: 

 

AL West:

Stros

Halos

M’s

Rangers

AAA’s

 

 A’s will be young and terrible 

 

NL West:

Dodgers

Giants

D Backs

Rockies

Pads

 

Giants are going to bounce back in a big way and contend with the Dodgers all season. Dodgers will win the division, but the Giants will snag the top Wild Card spot.

Its not like the A’s are actually going to do anything in the playoffs anyway.

They won the division today! I was just being cynical and predicting a collapse ~ironically~, it's all the big rage with the internet kids these days, honest!

It's called a reverse jinx. It's a legitimate and effective strategy.

Yanks punched their ticket to the postseason last night (aka 1 game wild card game) and popped champagne like they won the division. Can't say I agree with busting out the champagne for making it to the 163rd game of the season. Celebrate sure, but champagne showers? Nah, that's for the division winners

Especially for a team that makes the playoffs almost every year like the Yanks. I can’t remember if the 2012 O’s did it but that would be a situation in which it’d be appropriate imo.
