    Blue Jays Predictions 2015

    Normally there's a prediction thread...maybe I missed it but I thought we could post our predictions for hitters/pitchers or even win/loss record. Could be fun to look back on when the season is finished!


    Vic Mackey: You better figure out how much you hate me. And how you're going to deal with that. 'Cause I'm not going anywhere.

    This sums up every sports interview, ever.

    I 'm going to call a 90 win season. Wild card as the Sox win 92 games.
    3 15 Game winners- Hutch, Dickey and Norris.
    40 hrs for Jose, 36 by EE and 33 from Donaldson.
    And .290 from Travis.

    I'm cautiously optimistic this season. The lineup looks like it will hold. The pitching is going to have to come through big time. Big task for Sanchez and Norris to replace Stromans production but I think they can. Dickey needs to get his knuckler working early. He seems to do really well second half of the season. Buerhle needs to pull one more season out with that 80mph heater. Drew Hutchispn IMO Is who needs to step up with consistency this season. He needs to keep his velocity consistently up and pitch to his potential.
    If we are in the hunt come August AA needs to pull a blockbuster and bring in a real ace because the rookies will be on fumes by then.

    84 wins

    been waiting for this thread.

    surprise break out: Pillar. He out hits Pompay and is our starting CF down the stretch.

    Navarro does well in the DH spot and is flipped a month before the trade deadline for a quality BP arm.

    with Navarro gone, EE moves to the DH. Izturis and Travis are hitting so Donaldson moves to 1st, and reyes to 3rd.

    both sanchez and norris are as ready as Stroman was. our staff (if they stay healthy) will be at least as good as last year, with an improved lineup.

    the bullpen isnt as bad as we think itll be and becomes a strength after the Navarro trade.

    Martin is disappointing with the bat but helps the pitching staff a lot.

    94 wins, bumped in the 1st round as the young pitching staff crumples.

    Things will always work out in the end, but if you want them to turn out a certain way... You need to make it happen.

    Jose Bautista stays healthy and hits 40 homeruns on his way to winning the AL MVP with a line around .305/.415/.555.
    Gold Gloves go to Martin, Donaldson and Dickey.
    90 wins for the team and they win the AL East.

    surprise player of season.. Dickey, i think Dickey has a great year and comes close to a CY young calibre year. Will finish 5th in AL CY Young voting (we can dream right).

    i think Bautista or Donaldson will suffer a major injury early in the year that will keep either of them out until just after the ASG.

    Norris shines and wins ROY.

    finish with 88 wins and come in 2nd, O's will somehow win division

    Saunders goes down to a knee injury within the first 15 games he returns, needs complete surgery, begins an injury plagued tenor with the Jays. Pompey and Pillar playing everyday results in two black holes at the bottom of the lineup and subsequently AA using Navarro + to get an outfielder.

    Norris outpitches Sanchez by a lot. Sanchez ends up in the bullpen before the All-Star break.

    I think we stay competitive though, 85 wins.

    86 wins.

    We will have two of the rooks finish in the top 5 of ROY voting, but neither will win. Pompey and Sanchez will be over matched in their first seasons, while Travis and Norris will have good and great rookie campaigns.

    Team health and depth will be the major story lines of the season. Bautista, EE, Reyes and Saunders will all miss 30+ games.

    AL Champs - Tigers

    NL Champs - Nationals

    WS - Nationals

    AL MVP - Mike Trout

    NL MVP - Troy Tulowitzki (He finally stays health and plays in 155 games)

    AL CY - David Price

    NL CY - Stephen Strasburg

    AL ROY - Rusney Castillo

    NL ROY - Joc Pederson

    I like these threads

    Donaldson is a beast and goes off. Finishes in the top 5 of the MVP voting.

    Norris out pitches Sanchez

    Bullpen turns into a pleasant surprise, Castro/Osuna/Cecil are a solid late inning trio.

    Jays win 88 games - no idea if that gets them into the playoffs or not (likely not).

    Gibbons reaction to the Adam Lind trade

    i was thinking that too, but his biggest weakness is his arm, and if by some crazy chance izturis and travis are around 290, how else do we put the best team on the field?
