Yankees over Giants
I really didn’t want the Yankees to win the World Series, but that statistic where there last six times Kentucky men’s basketball won the National Championship, the Yankees went on to win the World Series in the same year just gets me every time. I remember laughing at it in 1998 and it happened.
MVP: Matt Kemp
If he statistically does what he wants to do, he’ll win hands down.
Cy Young: Tim Lincecum
I have the Giants doing really well this season and he would be the big part of it.
Rookie of the Year: Drew Pomeranz
I don’t really like the crop of rookies in the National League this season, so I’m gonna go with the guy that has a rotation spot now and can rack up 25+ start and help out Colorado.
MVP: Robinson Cano
Just barely over Miguel Cabrera. They’re both great players, but I think Cano is going to shoulder the load for New York with Jeter, A-Rod, and Teixeira another year older.
Cy Young: Matt Moore
You know what? I need something crazy to root for this year. Why not Matt Moore? Moore looked poised late last season and in the playoffs last season.
Rookie of the Year: Matt Moore
Well if he’s Cy Young, he’s going to win this too.
