After another tumultuous offseason, the 2019 MLB Regular Season is finally here. All 30 MLB teams will suit up on Thursday, setting in motion the 162-game season. Fresh off their second World Series title this decade, the Boston Red Sox face stiff competition from the New York Yankees and Tampa Bay Rays in the AL East, while the Cleveland Indians and Houston Astros look like they’ll both cruise to another division title. In the NL, the Central might be the most competitive division in the MLB, while the East has four teams vying for the playoffs, as well as the lowly Miami Marlins. In the NL West, the Los Angeles Dodgers seem poised to reign supreme once again, but can they finally get over the hump and win the World Series?
Only time will tell, by my fearless predictions say otherwise. After correctly predicting the Chicago Cubs to break their curse and defeat the Cleveland Indians in the 2016 World Series, my predictions haven’t quite been as on point. Maybe that’ll change this year. Here are my 2019 MLB Predictions ⬇️
