Do you hear that? Is that a bird chirping?
Do you feel that? Is that the sun coming out? Do you smell that? Is that flowers? It must be spring?
Baseball is Back!
It is Opening Day Weekend!! That’s right, America’s pastime is front & center once again. The earliest start to a season we have ever seen. It’s gonna be a long season, a marathon if you will, as all 30 teams look to compete for a World Series title. Baseball is known for it’s parity, and as it should be. Baseball is one of the only 4 major sports where you really never can predict what teams will win their Division, what teams will compete, what teams will underachieve or overachieve, as well as what teams will win it all. That’s Baseball though, as unpredictable as ever. So with that being said, the 2018 season is now upon us.
Here are my predictions for the 2018 Season :
* = Division Winner
** = Wild Card
This season should be alot of fun, it’s a long, enduring, grueling season that finally comes to an end around Halloween. Lot’s of things will change from now to then, but the goal will always remain the same – That World Series Ring. The Defending Champion Houston Astros will look to repeat, but will face some tough competition from opposing AL teams like the New York Yankees, Boston Red Sox, Cleveland Indians & Minnesota Twins. In the NL the Los Angeles Dodgers are the favorite, but teams like Colorado Rockies, Washington Nationals, Arizona Diamondbacks & the Chicago Cubs are all very strong contenders as well.
So sit back & enjoy this glorious game for what should be another great year.
Stars will be born, managers will be fired, no hitters will be thrown, shutouts will be pitched, homeruns will be hit, extra innings will be played, rivalries will be renewed, and some will even be formed. It’s a new season, a chance for revenge, a chance to etch a place in history, a chance to climb that mountain once again, a chance to prove the doubters wrong, a chance to start all over. The season is here now, let’s enjoy it.
