Back in March, I penned some bold predictions about every Major League team. I’m revisiting them division by division to see how I did.

Seriously, was there any doubt who the top outfielder is? No, and not for the next 5 years. It’s Mike Trout until at least 2019. Last year’s NL MVP is the unanimous #2 OF, and after that, things start getting a little fuzzy.
We all know of the other worldly exploits of Chris Davis of the Orioles, but the Brewers have their own Khris Davis, he just spells his a little differently. I don’t think we’ll mistake the 2 though. Khris is 25 years old and making his first foray into the Major Leagues. So far, he’s done [...]
With the ESPN.com report from T.J. Quinn and Mike Fish, it looks like MLB will be suspending Ryan Braun and Alex Rodriguez. Whether those suspensions hold up on appeal is a different story. Along with the two superstars on the list, as many as 20 other players have been implicated in the Biogenesis scandal and [...]
Obviously the biggest news of the week is the craziness that Yaisel Puig has brought to the Los Angeles Dodgers and to fantasy leagues across the land. Through his first 8 games, his slash line is a ridiculous .471/.500/.882. That’s right folks his OPS is 1.382. On top of all of that he has 4 [...]
One of the biggest surges in this week’s rankings comes from Adam Lind, who I went over in a separate post yesterday. While Lind has flown somewhat under the radar, Domonic Brown cannot help but steal the attention of the entire baseball world. In his past 15 games Brown has gone absolutely bonkers, hitting .426 [...]
With one quarter of the season behind us, the rankings are finally taking shape. With a huge week, Carlos Gonzalez moves up into the third position and one could easily make an argument for him at #1 overall. Owners are still waiting for Ryan Braun, Bryce Harper and Justin Upton to get in gear with [...]
I am all in on Josh Donaldson. He is making his debut on the rankings this week at #85 and is only going to move up if the past is any indication. Donaldson was the 48th overall pick of the 2007 draft by the Chicago Cubs and was one of the pieces used to acquire [...]
The biggest riser of the past week is Starling Marte, who has outperformed Andrew McCutchen so far and is one off the league lead for stolen bases with 10 to go along with his 5 jacks. He sports a .203 ISO and a .325/.390/.528 triple slash line. Basically exactly what McCutchen’s owners hoped for when [...]
Justin Upton finally takes the top spot this week, as there seems to be no way of slowing him down. David Ortiz makes the biggest jump, from the 87th position to #64 after returning from the DL ten days ago and proceeding to hit .500 so far with 3 HR. The man in front of [...]
