We gave you our awards predictions on Friday. Mike Trout’s gonna win MVP, Andrew Benintendi will win Rookie of the Year, Daniel Day-Lewis will win Best Actor. Basic things like that. There wasn’t a whole lot of controversy or really any tight races. Today, however, we’re going to give you our predictions on how the divisional races will play out, and who will win the World Series. These are the thoughts of the same 22 respondents as last time, but in the interest of saving space, we haven’t given you all 22 ballots individually. Each division has its own table, and each table shows how many votes each team got in each slot. The divisions are seeded based on which slot each team got the most votes in.
