2019 Predictions

Post by Radbird »

I'll start off with this:

1 bold prediction for each MLB team in 2019

Of note:
Blue Jays: Randal Grichuk will end up hitting 35 homers and become a highly coveted Trade Deadline piece
Grichuk has cut his strikeout rate considerably since arriving in Toronto from St. Louis without losing his prodigious power. He’s also a terrific defensive outfielder who may even lead off occasionally. He’ll also be a free agent after 2020, which makes him Deadline bait for a team looking for pop and defensive prowess. If he’s healthy -- a big if -- 35 homers should be a cinch.
Rays: Tommy Pham will finish in the top five in AL MVP Award voting
Pham was otherworldly after the Cardinals traded him to the Rays last season, and he’s poised to do even more damage in an extended run this year. When healthy – and he’s yet to stay healthy through a full season – he is simply one of the best hitters in baseball. He is in the perfect situation to thrive.
Cardinals: Paul DeJong will lead the team in home runs
DeJong had the second-highest homer-per-AB rate on the team last year, and the team, positionally, may be relying on no player more so, since there’s no real backup for him.
