Bless You Boys staff predictions for the 2019 MLB season

New, comments

The internet demands that we make a bunch of predictions for the upcoming season.

MLB: Spring Training-Toronto Blue Jays at Detroit Tigers Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports

Finally! After what seems like the longest offseason I can remember, the 2019 MLB season is here. All 30 teams will take the field on Thursday, most with at least some hopes of contending this year. Even those who weren’t the most active on this offseason’s free agent market will have high hopes for the season to come.

Those of you who have followed us for a while know that we take the time to publish our predictions for the upcoming season every year. They don’t always go well — I may have picked the Blue Jays to claim a Wild Card spot last year — but they are always entertaining, especially in hindsight.

Onto the predictions!
