I feel like that's a reasonable projection, but I'm not sold on the Red Sox being a .500 team this year. Anything else stand out to you for the Orioles or other teams? Phillies and Marlins being separated by that little sounds wild.

I think Trout opted out for the year. Projection seems kind for the Angels, even with Maddon. 

 

I'm gonna be curious to see who the fanless games help. Pitchers or hitters? Don't think it'll be both. Watching golf and been seeing a lot of low rounds, a lot of -20 or better for a tournament. Plenty of golfers have noted that no fans has taken some pressure off. As much as they can compartmentalize, you know these guys can hear a heckler in the on deck circle, or down in the bullpen. Will be interesting to see who is crisper.

I actually think it is a game or 3 too high.  Yankkes, Rays, Nationals,  Phillies, Braves, Mets, Red Sox, jays and Marlins...too rich for our blood....19 wins

Pitchers seem more cerebral, I am guessing them, but all will need to adjust.

Boston seems right to me.Slightly over .500.  Mets seem high.

 

It looks like the teams with good pitching got a boost.  The Orioles look to be in good shape for #1

I'm just incredibly unimpressed by their pitching staff. Everyone focuses on losing Mookie, but losing Price without getting anyone nearly as good to replace him could go poorly.

Things have been too depressing too long. The outlook seems like more of the same so to get me out of this funk I'm firing my head, hiring my heart and raiding my sock drawer to get the money I have saved because my favorite watering holes have been shut down.

 

Ten bucks each is going on ...

Orioles to go over win total (45-15)

Orioles to win the division

Orioles to win the AL pennant.

Orioles to win the World Series

Orioles not to lose 1 post season game.

 

Asher Wojiechowski to win the Cy Young (I'm a fan of Wojo from Barney Miller)

Chris Davis to win Home Run crown

Jose Inglesias to win Batting crown

Ryan Mountcastle to win ROY

 

That's $80 I can afford to lose but even if only one of my bets gets hot I'll have a good season of rooting and $20 left to drown my sorrows at the end of the season.

 

Or I might throw the $20 on the prop that the Ravens will go undefeated all the way to the Super Bowl

I agree with you that the O's won't lose any postseason games :)

This Uncut Gems sequel sounds exciting
