MLBmayhem.com’s writer 2017 predictions

Who will succeed in the regular season? I polled mlbmayhem.com writers to see who we thought would win the divisions, wildcards, and awards. Here’s what we came up with.

The writers seem to have a wild west showdown lined up in fall 2017, which I’d love to see. The postseason is always better when rivalries come into play. The Red Sox and Indians are projected to win back-to-back division titles with their offseason acquisitions and the writers say the Astros are ready to make the jump with the additions of Carlos Beltran, Brian McCann and more.

AL MVP: Mike Trout, Los Angeles Angels.

Not a surprising pick. The man who has finished top-two in MVP voting every full season he has played is predicted to win the MVP. FanGraphs predicts Trout to hit .292/.410/.557 with 35 home runs, 104 RBI, 24 steals and a 163 WRc+. He is also projected to have an 8.0 WAR.

AL Cy Young: Chris Sale, Boston Red Sox

Chris Sale is due to win a Cy Young. He has never finished with an ERA above 3.41 in his seven years in the Show. FanGraphs projects him to finish 16-7 with 199.7 IP, a 10.19 K/9 and a 2.79 ERA. Expect to see huge numbers from Sale with Boston’s great offense and fielding behind him.

AL Rookie of the Year: Andrew Benintendi, Boston Red Sox

The writers were especially kind to Beantown this year, as Andrew Benintendi is projected to finish as the AL Rookie of the Year. In 34 games last year Benintendi came in hot, hitting .295 and starting in the postseason. FanGraphs projects him to hit .278 with 12 home runs and 68 RBI. Maybe by the end of the season I’ll be able to spell his name.

NL West: Los Angeles Dodgers

NL Central: Chicago Cubs

NL Wild Card 1: New York Mets

Talk about a yawner. We’re not exactly spitting hot takes, predicting the same exact playoff teams from 2016. The Dodgers probably have the best depth in the league, and the Cubs have the best roster in the league. The Nationals bullpen may struggle, but their rotation and offense should dominate. New York can make it close if their pitchers can stay healthy, and Mark Melancon could be the missing piece in the city by the bay.

NL MVP: Freddie Freeman, Atlanta Braves

Freddie Freeman has become one of the best hitters in the National League, and we can only expect him to improve with a more potent Atlanta offense around him. Last year Freeman hit .302 with 34 home runs and 91 RBI, along with a WRC+ of 152 and a WAR of 6.1. FanGraphs projects him to hit .281 with 26 home runs and 86 RBI, but we’re much higher on him than them.

NL Cy Young: Noah Syndergaard, New York Mets

Syndergaard skyrocketed last year, becoming one of the best pitchers in the National League. He piled up 6.5 WAR while pitching for a 2.60 ERA and a 14-9 record. He also struck out 218 batters. This year, he is projected by FanGraphs to go 14-9 with a 2.91 ERA.

NL Rookie of the Year: Dansby Swanson, Atlanta Braves

The former #1 pick by the Arizona Diamondbacks has flown his way through the farm systems of Arizona and Atlanta, making his debut last year. In 38 games he hit .302 with 3 homers. This year FanGraphs predicts he will hit .253 with 12 dongs, 64 RBI and 7 steals.

Baseball is stupid, weird, and you're always wrong. Let's just hope we got one or two.

 

Please.
