2019 MLB Predictions


We are here! After many weeks of Spring Training it is Opening Day! Since the last out of the World Series in 2018, baseball fans have been jonesing for this day! What is going to happen in the 2019 MLB season? I can’t say that I know, but I do know that we will be surprised by more than a couple things. Here at Fighting Chance we always like to put our necks out there and try to guess who will win divisions, wild cards, the World Series, win awards, and lead the league in offensive categories. As usual, I am joined by Steve Rapin and Patrick Wisniewski as we bring out our crystal ball(s) to tell you what we think will happen in this upcoming season.
