2020 MLB Preview

        The 2020 MLB season is shaping up to be one of the most interesting seasons in recent memory, especially when considering the stars that have changed places this offseason, Gerritt Cole, Anthony Rendon, and Mookie Betts. There are also stars who could be traded during the season, such as Francisco Lindor, Nolan Arenado, and Kris Bryant, while I doubt any of those players will be traded during the season, rumors have been swirling for a while now that any of them could be on the move.  The NL East is looking extremely intriguing, with four contenders in the division, including the defending World Series Champions Washington Nationals. While the Cincinnati Reds will be looking to give the Chicago Cubs and Milwaukee Brewers a run for their money towards the NL Central division title. The Los Angeles Dodgers, who acquired former MVP and CY Young award winners, in Mookie Betts and David Price, will likely run away with the NL West. In the AL East, the New York Yankees will likely win the division, however, I wouldn’t be surprised if the Tampa Bay Rays have a chance in September to win the division. The AL Central, however, is a different story, as it is generally considered to be the worst division in the MLB, the Minnesota Twins and Cleveland Indians will need to feast on the Detroit Tigers and Kansas City Royals, two of the five worst teams in baseball. The Chicago Whitesox will be looking to capitalize on their spending spree this past offseason, and hope it will lead them towards an AL Central title, the Twins, however, should be considered the favorite. Lastly, the AL West will be one of the most interesting divisions, especially following the outcome of the Houston Astros cheating scandal, and issues opposing players will have with them. Regardless, the Astros are the most talented team in the division, and will likely be the division winner. The Los Angeles Angels will look to get into the playoffs for the second time in Mike Trout’s career. The 2020 MLB season is shaping up to be a very interesting season, in which any team can win the World Series.
