2018 MLB Predictions

It’s MLB Opening Day, my favorite day of the year! For the first time in several years, I have high hopes for my Phillies to do some winning. I trust the prospects.

Without wasting much time about how nostalgic I am about today, here are some predictions on individual awards and statistical champions:

  • NL MVP- Bryce Harper
  • AL MVP- Mookie Betts
  • AL Cy Young- Justin Verlander
  • NL Cy Young- Stephen Strasburg
  • NL Rookie of the Year- JP Crawford
  • AL Rookie of the Year- Gleyber Torres
  • AL Manager of the Year- Terry Francona
  • NL Manager of the Year- Joe Maddon
  • NL Home Run Champion- Bryce Harper 43
  • AL Home Run Champion- Aaron Judge 45
  • AL Batting Champion- Mookie Betts .340
  • NL Batting Champion- Charlie Blackmon .347
  • NL RBI Champion- Bryce Harper 125
  • AL RBI Champion- Aaron Judge 131
  • AL Wins Leader- Corey Kluber 20
  • NL Wins Leader- Stephen Strasburg 21
  • NL ERA Leader- Clayton Kershaw 2.27
  • AL ERA Leader- Justin Verlander 2.67
  • AL Innings Leader- Justin Verlander 218
  • NL Innings Leader- Max Scherzer 214
