Just because games have not started yet doesn’t mean that we can’t make some predictions for both the Colorado Rockies and future award winners.
The 2020 Major League Baseball season was supposed to start today. Even though it has been postponed indefinitely, that doesn’t mean that the hype train just comes to a stop. In the next few days and weeks, we here at Rox Pile will be making some predictions for both the Colorado Rockies and some award predictions for both leagues. Today, I’ll predict the winners (and both runners-up) for the American League awards.
Just for transparency, these were my predictions in both leagues for 2019.
AL MVP – Mike Trout
AL Cy Young Award – Justin Verlander
AL ROY – Eloy Jimenez
NL MVP – Paul Goldschmidt
NL Cy Young Award- Aaron Nola
NL ROY – Pete Alonso
I was feeling terrific through the American League, and then everything fell apart in the National League. Paul Goldschmidt is a whole lot of yikes. And Aaron Nola took a giant step back instead of continuing his progression from an impressive 2018.
I’m putting that all behind me now and ready to go 6-for-6 in the AL this season as I predict Rookie of the Year, Comeback Player of the Year, Manager of the Year, Reliever of the Year, Cy Young, and MVP.
