2022 MLB Predictions

After an almost 100 day lockout, Major League Baseball is finally back, with Opening Day less than a week away. The greedy owners weren’t able to break the union, and the MLB and MLBPA eventually agreed upon a new Collective Bargaining Agreement. Free agency quickly re-started (at least for some teams, I’m looking at you, Paul Dolan 😤) and spring training began.

So finally we can get back to baseball. Spring is in the air…at least in some parts of the country, whereas in Cleveland, we got two inches of snow on Sunday. But enough about Cleveland, their cheap ownership and their refusal to spend a single dime in free agency. Without further ado, here are my 2022 MLB Predictions.
