Son’s Of ’84 2015 Predictions

Each season I check in with current and previous writers from Pepper Baseball and current writers/ for SO84 to get their predictions for the current season and add mine in as well.  We’ll check back in at the end of the season to see who was most accurate.

SK: The AL is wide open this year, even with Marcus Stroman going down, there’s a chance they could end up in the World Series

  1. Additions:
    – Playoff teams are tough. And we had pretty much the same other than Toronto & The Cubbies. The AL East stinks, it will be a winner by default. I was picking the Jays like JD until Stroman went down. Too young.. But Boston’s staff is terrible & that is typically how I judge a team. I also believe they will have Cole Hamels, plus another arm by July…
    – With similar playoff picks, we’ll be wrong on at least 3.
    – Nats are too obvious, something will happen..
    – Good representation in the Awards. Those are the top options. Again, too obvious. I think AL ROY is the toughest to predict by far. I made the mistake of thinking Mookie no longer qualified. I would change that pick. And watch for Joc Pederson in the NL.
    – This looks too similar to all the predictions you see online. Maybe we should do a bold predictions list…


  2. I still like Norris and Sanchez in the Blue Jays rotation, but that loss of Stroman hurts for sure.

    Was close to picking Perderson but his track record for being an elite prospect is based on just one strong season last year.
