NL Western Division Picks

Today’s Dodgers lead by depth at pitching, depth at fielding and depth at hitting all which seem to point toward another championship. But you can never tell if injury to a key player or two scuttles the whole smooth operation. Analytics be damned, injury can wreck even the best of plans.

American League Western Division Picks

After winning back-to-back titles in the AL Western Division it might seem the Astros could be ripe for a letdown especially losing pitchers Dallas Keuchel and Charlie Morton. But the rest of the division has lost a lot too except for the Angels and they can’t compete just yet. 

AL Eastern Division Picks

This should be the New York Yankees year especially with the weak opening month schedule in 2019. The Bronx Bombers begin facing the lowly Baltimore Orioles and Detroit Tigers for the first nine games before meeting the Houston Astros. They could very well jump start with a nine-game winning streak to open the season.

The Chicago Cubs remain the top club to beat with its strong pitching staff that includes a healthy Yu Darvish this year. Health is an important issue for this team especially with its pitching staff.
