2017 MLB Predictions

Here are my predictions for the 2017 season. As you may have noticed, the predictions below may be different from the predictions listed in my Ten Bold Predictions column. This is because the predictions in that column were bold. In other words, they are not necessarily what I believe have the highest likelihood of happening, but rather what I feasibly could see happening.
