Baseball is back and I can’t be more excited! We are set up for a great season with numerous stars going to different teams as well as other teams on the rise. We are primed for one of the best seasons of all time.

Yes, yes I am being a homer by picking the Dodgers but I pick my team to win it all every year no matter the circumstances. A lot of baseball experts can agree they are the best team as well, it is not just me.
Here are my individual awards for each conference:
AL MVP: Vlad Guerrero Jr.
NL MVP: Juan Soto
AL Cy Young: Robbie Ray
NL Cy Young: Walker Buehler
AL ROTY: Bobby Witt Jr
NL ROTY: Oneil Cruz
AL Manager: Scott Servais (Seattle)
NL Manager: Buck Showalter (Mets)
Like every sports prediction I make these will probably all be terrible but all we can do is watch and see, maybe this is the time I get something right in the sports world for once.
