    Braves: 74-88 (4th in NL East)

    NL East: Nats

    Acuna will win NL Rookie of the Year but it won’t be enough to do anything for the Braves. The NL East will be tougher than last year with improved Phils and resurgent Mutts.

    Braves will win 79 games. I predict they are squarely below .500 most of the year but make it up with a strong September in garbage time. Also giving myself a +5 window if Acuna and Albies go gangbusters.

    NLDS: Cubs over Brewers, Dodgers over Nats

    Newcomb > 4.50 ERA < 10 wins
    Gohara > 4.00 ERA < 10 wins

    Viz < 20 saves

    I really scored the rotation pretty high. you can kind of tell from the win predictions that I grew up in a different era.

    I would say I basically hit on Folty (might actually hit).

    Definitely missed on McCarthy and his getting injured again.

    Teheran was sort of a bounce back play without his necessarily being great. He was definitely worse than I thought in the first half. I guess his second half was more like I was anticipating. Something where he scraped together wins and decent performances that exceeded the peripherals.

    Miss on Albies. Didn't see him being power over average.

    Swanson - HIT.

    Acuna - HIT

    Freddie - MISS (prolly) - this was my predicting another MVP type season with better OBP in front of him and that didn't quite happen on either front. Freddie was merely very good and the top of the lineup was a struggle at times. And Albies did not turn out to be a big OBP guy up in the front. Again I totally missed on what sort of player Albies would be.

    Newcomb - MISS. I was predicting his season would go about like his second half has gone. Didn't see the All Star level first half coming.

    Gohara - HIT. About what I expected.

    VIZ - HIT. Barely, but this went according to my sense of things.

    I was way off. Looks like I will get the Astros right and maybe the Dodgers.

    I'm so glad these predictions were trash.

    Things went pretty much according to form in the AL.

    I would use the Twins as a cautionary tale moving forward. After I watched their late-season push last year, I thought their young core was ready to really put it together, but man did they ever s*ck. Injuries, suspensions, and Sano getting really fat.
