My least favorite type of baseball articles to read are preseason predictions for awards. Nobody in their right mind is going to pick against Mike Trout for AL MVP and there's a very narrow population of players that are considered in the NL. It's not exactly informative to hear someone say, "Clayton Kershaw has a... Read More

One of my favorite preseason series here at RotoBaller has been the “10 Bold Predictions” series. It allows authors to pump up a few of the players and teams they like (and deflate the guys they dislike), while also going on record with actual stats and metrics. Be sure to check out just how wonky... Read More

Just when you thought it was over... this will officially conclude our Bold Predictions series for the fantasy baseball season. Last year was the debut of my 10 bold predictions, and I think I did pretty well. But you should be the judge for yourself and review how I did before deciding how much stock... Read More

Here at Rotoballer, we truly do believe in the "grand finale" concept--that's why you're getting MY bold predictions after all the other chuckleheads. By chuckleheads I mean my talented and respectable colleagues. Be sure to check out just how wonky we all get this time of year with our entire Bold Prediction Series. I didn't have... Read More

Over the final two weeks leading up to Opening Day, our writers will be offering their most audacious projections for the 2017 fantasy baseball season. This is my second year contributing to this bold predictions series. Last season, I hit on a couple of predictions (Jake Arrieta’s fall from grace, Christian Yelich’s breakout, Roberto Osuna... Read More

Our series of bold predictions continues. It has been a while since I contributed here at RotoBaller, but with my Master's Thesis winding down and the baseball season looming, I felt it was about time to hop back into the fold. Let's dust off the old hunch machine and see what kind of bold fantasy... Read More

Our series of bold predictions continues with my piece. I felt that I was a little bolder than most of my colleagues last season, including the only recommendation I saw for Steven Wright's breakout campaign. I also touted Drew Storen as a top reliever for fantasy purposes. That one didn't work out so well. This... Read More

JB's 10 Bold Predictions for 2017

Welcome back to the most infamous series at RotoBaller, our pre-season bold predictions. Since the beginning of this week through the end of next week, our brightest baseball minds offer their most audacious projections for the 2017 fantasy baseball season. Thanks to the Army sending me to the swamps of Louisiana, I missed out on the fun... Read More

I'm no stranger to making bold predictions, although this is my first go-around in this particular series. As a fantasy analyst, I always try to take an objective, statistic-based approach. As a fan, I am an unrepentant Marlins apologist and tend to hold grudges against players and teams for decades on end. I would have... Read More

Welcome to the first day of March Madness, but more importantly the 4th edition of RotoBaller's Bold Predictions series.  Over the next two weeks, our writers will be offering their most audacious projections for the 2017 fantasy baseball season. Last year I named Mookie Betts the fantasy MVP. I also noted Trevor Story would be... Read More

It's time for everyone's favorite writer to give his Bold Predictions. Wait, Nick published his a couple days ago? Then I guess it's time for everyone's second favorite writer to give his Bold Predictions for the 2017 fantasy baseball season! Yes, that's right, it's me, Edward Sutelan. I made some predictions last season, and if you remember,... Read More

Howdy, folks. It's your favorite writer ever, Nick Mariano, here to join the battle against tempered expectations. Over the next two weeks, our writers will be offering their most audacious projections for the 2017 fantasy baseball season. This is my second time around the sun with this Bold Predictions series. If you listened to me last... Read More

Over the next two weeks, our writers will be offering their most audacious projections for the 2017 fantasy baseball season. This is my third go-round with this series. I've had some great successes and some equally terrible calls in both previous attempts, and this year should be no different. Hopefully the former outweigh the failures,... Read More

What's up Rotoballers. With the All Star Break in the rear view mirror and the second half underway, we figured it was time to gather up four of the kookiest, albeit best writers we have and hear their bold predictions for the home stretch. Our "Fantastic Four" is comprised of JB Branson (@RowdyRotoJB), Nick Mariano... Read More

The 2016 season is finally underway. This piece would have been published last week, but technical problems led to delay. Here the final set of bold predictions for the new fantasy season.   Bold Predictions for 2016 1. Jake Arrieta finishes outside the top 20 starting pitchers There’s a good chance I’m very wrong here.... Read More

I may not be right, but I'll be bold. And if I shoot for the moon, maybe I'll hit the stars. That being said, let's dive right in. Editor's note: Be sure to check out our fantasy baseball rankings assistant. We recently launched this handy new rankings tool - you can easily filter, sort, and export all sorts of... Read More

Bold (adj.) ˈbōld Definition: fearless before danger Prediction (noun) pri-ˈdik-shən Definition: a statement about what will happen or might happen in the future Together, these words form the perfect recipe for making me look like an idiot at the conclusion of the 2016 MLB season. Our beloved Kyle Bishop asked the RotoBaller crew if we... Read More

The Cincinnati Reds will win the World Series! It does not get much bolder than that. And as much as I wish I could stand behind that statement with logic, this sad fan knows that this is not the season for the Reds. But though it may not be the year for the Reds, Ohio... Read More

I must say I quite enjoy being involved in lists like these. If you are wrong, no one can say anything because they’re supposed to be long shots! I did my best to keep in line with things that might actually happen. Let’s see how we do. Editor's note: Be sure to check out our fantasy... Read More

Welcome back to RotoBaller's 2016 Bold Predictions series. We've heard from several writers already, but have plenty more fearless forecasts coming down the pike. Today, it's my turn to put my sterling reputation on the line. Editor's note: Be sure to check out our fantasy baseball rankings assistant. We recently launched this handy new rankings tool - you can... Read More

Often a bold prediction is simply buying into the hype of a certain player, and chasing that down with a shot of wishful thinking. A can-do attitude is a key part of why the best Major Leaguers do what they do. They know they can, therefore they do. So maybe, just maybe, with the help... Read More

Last year around this time, I published a set of bold predictions for 2015. It was such an enjoyable exercise that I've decided to not only do it again this year, but get some of my colleagues in on the act. Over the next two weeks, our writers will be offering their most audacious projections... Read More

Kyle, Kyle, Kyle, what hell hath you wrought on our poor readers? Look at the Pandora’s Box that’s been opened. Now it’s time for my shenanigans to fly out. Editor's note: Be sure to check out our fantasy baseball rankings assistant. We recently launched this handy new rankings tool - you can easily filter, sort, and export all sorts... Read More

While I like the idea for this series, it has become a trend to blame fellow RotoBaller Kyle Bishop for making us do it. So thanks a bunch, Kyle, for making me do something I wanted to do anyway. Usually, I identify whether specific baseball players are champs or chumps. This time, we'll find out... Read More

*Eric Cartman voice* "Come on, Kyyyyyyyyle..." For real, Kyle got us in on the bold predictions and I'm glad he did. These are always fun to do, and it'll be even more fun looking back in September and finding out I nailed all 10. Max claimed in his piece that the best hitter on the team... Read More

Fellow writer Kyle Bishop had a great idea for us "experts" to come up with a plethora of bold predictions. So far we've see the 10 bold predictions from Kyle and Max. Now it's my turn. I like to think I did fairly well on my more conservative predictions last year (believing in the Gerrit Cole,... Read More

Welcome to round two of our Bold Predictions segment. If anyone asks, Kyle bullied me into doing this. But in all seriousness, the best hitter on a team bats second, so I'm honored to be included. In this edition I'll be highlighting the hitters and pitchers I believe have the best chance to make crazy... Read More

  For the last few years, the staff over at RotoGraphs has been publishing their "10 Bold Predictions" series. These are typically among my favorite reads in the realm of fantasy baseball - and considering how much content I devour, that's saying something.   Since imitation is the sincerest form of flattery and all, I'm... Read More

Calling All RotoBallers! The MLB All-Star break has come to pass, which means it's time again to make some BOLD! fantasy baseball predictions for the second half of the season.  Perhaps the loyal and long-time RotoBallers will remember performing this same exercise last year?  I'll admit to making some unreasonable and fairly absurd predictions in... Read More

UPDATED: July 29th Looks like Ryan Rufe hit the nail on the head with this one: "Albert Pujols will go under the knife in August and miss the remainder of the season"... And it seems like this is also coming to fruition: "A-Rod will do almost nothing of substance to help the Yankees."... Wow, I wonder what...
