2022 MLB Predictions, Which Will Surely Be Wrong

Happy Baseball Opening Day! A 2022 Major League Baseball season that I doubted would begin on time (or be played at all) because of the labor dispute between team owners and players is going to happen. And there’s some excitement in Detroit after the Tigers won 77 games last year, finished on a strong note, signed some top free agents, and have promising young players ready to emerge.

I am terrible with predictions. Maybe I should start a gambling blog. But I suppose I tend to better with preseason picks, rather than playoff predictions. With that said, I’ll get these 2022 MLB predictions on the record so we can laugh about how wrong they were in October.

🐯 The Detroit Tigers will win 83 games, putting them in the playoff race but they’ll ultimately fall short.
