We are now approaching the one-month mark of the busy (and long) baseball season, and it seems like a good time to take stock and ask ourselves what is and isn’t working for the team. There have been injuries — some worse than others — and there have been surprisingly incredible performances (holy catfish, Tyler Glasnow).
The mission of this week’s FanPost Friday prompt is to look at this first month of the season and decide how you see the rest of the year going. What will the team’s record be? Where will they place in the division? Who will be the big breakout star, and who will be traded before the deadline is over?
We love making predictions before the season begins, and I even asked you to do that with the 5 bold predictions prompt at the beginning of the baseball season. But this is a little different. With this, I want you to take the real evidence you’re seeing on the field, and use it to justify how you think things are going to play out.
Head over to the FanPosts section and select “New FanPost” on the left, then tell us what you think the best case scenario is for the Rays now that you’ve seen them in action for a month. (And what a month it has been).
Also don’t forget to submit your rankings (and why) of the 29 other MLB teams, as we will be compiling those into their own post at the end of the month.
