Tuck: Bold Predictions For The 2014 MLB Season

By Mike Tuck
Host, Tuck & O'Neill

- The Astros are going to suck again, BUT they do have a LOADED farm system that includes 7 of the top 75 or so prospects in all of baseball.  So by 2016 they could be a real threat in the AL West.

- The Cubs will have the worst record in the NL, but like Houston could be good in a couple years.

- The Mariners will finish above .500 thanks to their spending spree.

- The Angels have star power, but no depth, and it will keep them out of the playoffs again.

- The Indians will win the AL Central behind their pitching staff, which receives a boost of having Yan Gomes elevated to their top catcher.

- The Tigers are old in the wrong spots, and it will show.

- Derek Jeter will make the all-star team, and it will be much debated whether or not it was earned.

- Cliff Lee will win a playoff game.  Of course it won’t be with Philly.

- Giancarlo Stanton will be the MLB HR king.

- Ryan Braun will be an all-star.

- Albert Pujols will be the comeback player of the year.

- Mike Trout will finally win the AL MVP.

- Yu Darvish will win the AL Cy young award.

- Hanley Ramirez will win the NL MVP.

- Stephen Strasburg will win the NL Cy Young award.
