2020 Bold Predictions (Short Season edition)

Recommended Posts

Always one of my favorite threads to review at the end of the season, and figured it being opening day and all, we should start one for the short season, and we can all look back and see how optimistic, ridiculous, or spot on we were.  

 

The bolder the better!   I'll start:

 

Eugenio Suarez ends up becoming a top 12 hitter this season

Zac Gallen and Frankie Montas both finish as top 20 starters

Tatis has the sophomore slump, finishes outside the top 80

Walker Buehler finishes outside the top 20 pitchers

The Franimal ends up in the top 3 in MLB in HR's  (Judge ends up leading the league)

Pete Alonso doesn't finish in the top 10 in HR's

and lastly.. Garrett Richards FINALLY stays healthy, and ends up being a top 30 starting pitcher

In a 60 game sample (or less) I almost think it's impossible to be bold.

I don't think it's unlikely that we see a star player or even superstar player post a .230/.300/.420 line.

I wouldn't be surprised to see an Adam Frazier type hit .340 either.

I think it'll make selecting keepers and drafting next year all the more difficult but interesting because everyone will be wondering how much weight to put on a small but much more recent sample.

Bold prediction - Dansby Swanson is going to be a top 5 Shortstop.  Scoop him up in your leagues.

Soroka will have similar stats than last year and won't fall apart.

I was really close with Dansby, I think he finished 6 in a 5X5.  Depends if you want to call Manny Macahdo your SS or 3B, he'd be 5th!
