With the Chicago Cubs hosting the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday night and a full slate of games on Monday, it is time for my predictions for the 2015 MLB season.
Before I get to this year’s prediction though, let me discuss my best and worst predictions from last season.
My best prediction by far was with the Kansas City Royals. I wrote, “Look for Kansas City to end its 29-year post-season drought in 2014.” OK, I had them winning the AL Central rather than one of the wild card spots and I didn’t think they would get out of the ALDS, but considering the team was in last place in their division on June 1st, the prediction was a prescient one.
The same could not be said of my prediction that the Arizona Diamondbacks would win the World Series. Not only did the D’Backs not win the Fall Classic, their 64-98 record was the worst in MLB in 2014.
So, right or wrong, here is what I think will transpire this season.
