Addison Russell finished the year as the #3 SS in fantasy baseball behind Correa and Seager.  

 

Now that is a bold prediction.

CL - Boxberger 40 saves

 

Only ones I really can't see are 30 from longo, the 20 from Anderson, 50 from schwarber seems high (40?), and the cueto era.

Some of these are bold and some not-so-bold, but here goes:

 

*Willson Contreras finishes as the #1 fantasy catcher this season, edging out Gary Sanchez.

*Evan Gattis out-earns every other catcher besides the aforementioned two.

*Trea Turner stays healthy for a full season, hitting 20 HRs, stealing 65 bags, and finishing as the #1 overall player in fantasy.

*Christian Yelich returns first round value is is drafted accordingly next season.

*David Dahl is a top 50 player and an early round draft choice next season.

*Justin Bour hits 40 HRs, buoyed by a mid-season trade to the Red Sox.

*Byron Buxton is the first player since 2012 to post a 30/30 season.

*Noah Syndergaard is hurt again early in the season and misses most of the year.

*Corey Seager's elbow is fine, but he hurts his back again and elects surgery, missing most of the year.

*Gerrit Cole has a monster season and finishes as a top ten pitcher.

*Luis Castillo, Luke Weaver, and Zack Godley are all top 20 pitchers.

*Shohei Otani hits the waiver wire in many shallow leagues by mid-season.

*Delino DeShields posts a .265/100/10/65/45 line and finishes as a top 50 player.

*Manny Margot posts a similar line but with 5 more HR's, also finishing as a top 50 player.

*Jose Martinez finds 500 ABs and is a top ten fantasy first baseman.

@garlando I got Devon Travis in an auction for nothing yesterday. 0 shine on him at this point. Curtis Granderson leading off? We’ll see how long that lasts.

 

“But he always gets hurt “. If you’ve followed my post over the years, it’s dumb not to take good talents at discounts when they are currently healthy. I’m not taking an inferior talent on a pick that late because of likelihood in staying healthy.

 

If Travis starts off hot , he’s the guy that’s going to be in all the waiver wire columns early this season.

Deep leagues? Under the radar?

 

 Blake Swihart finishes as a top 8-10C this year.

 

Guy's always had the chops to hit, and has always had the love of scouts.  What he hasn't had?  Health.  He's been hurt forever, has no real path to playing time, and is out of options....So why now?  

Sox are playing him everywhere this spring, 3B/1B/DH/OF/C.  I have a feeling he's gonna get a lot of burn in a super utility role.  If he doesn't?  Again, he's out of options, so even if he can't make the Sox roster-teams are gonna give him a shot somewhere-and he'll perform wherever he's at....provided he stays healthy.

What the heck, I'll toss a few out:

-Taijuan Walker sneaks into the top 25 SP landscape

-So does Wacha (as many have already predicted) his added pitches really help imo

-Arodys Vizcaino rounds into an elite points league closer (top 8 roughly)

-G Cole is the most valuable SP on HOU and garners CY votes

-Rich Hill throws 190 IP and 225 Ks

-Trevor Story finishes comfortably inside top 10 SS

-Ryan Cordell wins AL ROY

Here are my personal top 10 Bold Predictions:

 

Good thread.  Just not very Bold IMO.

 

yelich is pretty hyped.  Morrow had a great year and is now a closer on a good team.   Godley was pretty good last year.

I hope Walker, Wacha and Cole are all true...if so, I'll be playing for a 'ship.

Billy Hamilton gets moved to 7th in the bating order, lights a fire, goes on a tear in April, ends the month batting 310, moved to lead off, ends the year batting 270 with 100 runs and 80 steals

 

Ozzie Albies ends the season at 315/20/95/70/38 leading people to believe he is Jose Altuve's half brother\

 

Aaron Judge ends the month of May with a 230 BA and 8 homers and gets moved down in the order and becomes the next Kevin Mass
