nmigliore Posted March 28, 2014 Share Posted March 28, 2014 (edited) About time to kick this off, I think. Miguel Cabrera just signed a monster extension. My 2014 predictions: AL East: Red Sox AL Central: Tigers AL West: Angels AL Wild Cards: Rays, A's AL MVP: Mike Trout (easiest player award pick; should've won it the last two years, I say he wins it this year as he leads the Angels to a division title in what should be a competitive 3- or 4-team race) AL Cy Young: Danny Salazar (part of this is me wanting to be unique, but everything about Salazar screams future ace; the future is now) AL Rookie of the Year: Masahiro Tanaka (lots of other good candidates such as Jose Abreu, Xander Bogaerts, Yordano Ventura) NL East: Nationals NL Central: Cardinals NL West: Dodgers NL Wild Card: Pirates, Braves NL MVP: Bryce Harper (see Salazar explanation, although this one doesn't feel nearly as bold; with good health, Harper seems ready for an MVP-caliber breakout as the Nats win the East) NL Cy Young: Jose Fernandez (I'm a fool for not picking Kershaw, but Fernandez is among rarefied air as a pitcher who skipped AA and AAA and then dominated the Majors to a 2.19 ERA/2.73 FIP at the age of 20) NL Rookie of the Year: Gregory Polanco (like the AL, lots of other potentially good candidates in Archie Bradley, Jameson Taillon, Javier Baez, Billy Hamilton.... but I say Polanco comes up and displaces Jose Tabata pretty quickly and helps lead the Pirates to an NL Wild Card) Edited March 28, 2014 by nmigliore Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
