Ok, I'll give it a shot.

Puig and Dahl are both top 10 outfielders

Braun turns back the clock and records a 30hr/10sb/>.280avg season with his revamped swing

Kershaw and Severino combine for under 200 innings pitched and an ERA over 4.00

Robles and Eloy win ROY awards

Nats win the World Series

Wheeler finishes top 3 in NL CY Young voting

My man Byron Buxton silences the critics and goes for > 50 home runs + stolen bases

Altuve finishes outside the top 10 for 2b

Bryant returns to form with a .290, 35 HR season

Treinan is demoted for the closer role at some point in the season

Anibal Sanchez and Matthew Boyd finish as top 30 starting pitchers

Adam Eaton plays in 150 games and has a 102/15/68/15 line leading off all season.

 

Inciarte leads the league with 122 runs and steals 32 bags finishing as a top 10 OF.

 

Buster Posey is the 4th ranked catcher at the end of the year in standard 5x5.

 

The Dodgers have 3 SPs finish in the top 20 SP ranks in standard 5x5 scoring. Beuhler, Stripling and Hill. 

 

Ryan Pressley leads the Astros in saves. 

 

Yes these are all guys I own. So what? A guy can hope right?

Bold Predictions: Bryon Buxton finishes as a top 20 overall fantasy player and becomes a second round pick next year. 

 

Is Bryon his twin brother who can actually hit?

Bold predictions, IMO, supposed to be hyperboles based in concepts.

 

Jorge Polanco: .305 BA, 20 HRs, 20 SBs, 100 Rs

Corey Seager: .315 BA / 30 HRs / 200 R+RBI

Jonathan Villar: 20 HRs, 60 SBs

Yasiel Puig: 30 HRs, 20 SBs

Xander Bogaerts: 30 HRs, 200 R+RBI

Jeff McNeil win the NL Batting Title

Giancarlo Stanton breaks the 60 HR barrier 

Eugenio Suarez win the NL MVP

Zack Wheeler is the best pitcher on the Mets

Mike Clevinger continues ascent, finishes in the top 10 among SPs. 

Jimmy Nelson returns to form over 150 Innings with a 3.50 or better ERA and a 9.50 or better K/9

Neither Shane Bieber and Nick Pivetta get below a 4.25 ERA. 

Walker Buehler wins Cy Young

It's popular, but I'm jumping on the Bauer Cy Young train. 

Andrew McCutchen (139th Overall / 40th OF on Fantasypros) finishes in the Top 75 in Overall and Top 20 in OF

Whit Merrifield (31st Overall) beats Trea Turner (8th Overall) in 5x5

Lorenzo Cain (64th Overall) beats Starling Marte (35th Overall) on Player Raters (5x5). But really in all formats too. 

Starling Marte: Shows real signs of fall-off. Power stroke falls back. Not under 10 but close. Speed is under 30 SBs. BA trends downward.

Jesus Aguilar (77th Overall) Fails to repeat his 2018. Due to players around him, is benched v. RHP regularly by the All-Star Break. 

Luke Voit (183rd), Justin Smoak (208th), Tyler White (265th), Yonder Alonso (331st) all finish better than Jesus Aguilar (77th) 

Dereck Rodriguez (293rd) finished better than Miles Mikolas (99th) 

Joe Musgrove (64th) Reynaldo Lopez (77th) and Caleb Smith (137th) finish as top 30 SPs

Victor Robles is the #1 Fantasy Rookie. 

Jack Flaherty (SP20) finishes outside the top 40 SPs [yes, feed me with your tears]

Dee Gordon is not a top 250 player in 5x5

Jesse Winker Leads-Off for the Reds. Jose Peraza bats 8th or 9th all season.

Jose LeClerc is the #1 Closer

 

I may think up more but I there's a few. 

 

Liking this analysis quite a bit.  Maybe disagreeing on Cutch but love his park.

 

REALLY liking and targeting McNeil for my OF in 20 games.  Bummed to miss out on Robles as a buddy snatched him at the perfect time during a massive SP run 😂

Another bold prediction: Ian Desmond gets injured, Garrett Hampson gets full playing time. Steals 50 bases and hits 15 HR.

Ehh why not. 

 

Buxton goes .250, 25/35

Tyler O’Neil overtakes Fowler mid April and hit 35 hrs while batting around .220 and had a Gallo type impact  

Maikal Franco hits 30 plus hrs while battling .280 and has an ops over .350.

German Marquiz is  top 15 sp while striking out 220 plus batters  

John Gray bounces back and has 15 wins and an era under 3.50

Ryan Brasier, Pedro Strop snd Alex Colome all are amongst the top 15 in saves.

Eloy Jimenez gets the call in May and stuggles mightily and gets sent down for more seasoning after 6 weeks. 

Vladdy Jr. doesn’t get called up until June but still hits 25 plus hr.

Not sure if it qualifies as bold but I'll pit it out there...

Ryan McMahon is this year's spring heartbreaker who puts up gaudy spring stats just to fall flat in regular season, following in the footsteps of Maikel Franco, Juan Nicasio, and Greg Bird.

Miggy Cabrera will OPS > 1.000 with > 500 PA

 

Greg Allen will score 80 runs and steal 30 bases

 

Keibert Ruiz will become the Dodgers everyday catcher in time to bat .300 in the post season

 

The D-backs will be accused of running a de-humidifier during home at bats.

 

At least one team will intentionally walk in a run to meet the 6 run threshold and gain pitchers' eligibility for field players.

 

Franklin Baretto will hit 25 mlb hrs

 

Vladdy Guererro and Marcel Ozuna will be the first players (twice in the same year!) to win a batting title while weighing more than their batting averages.
