The 2018 MLB promises to be an exciting one. Here are six things to look out for this season.
Giancarlo Stanton May Have Massive Success with the Yankees
Stanton knows how to hit, and he wants to terrorize the American League East. It will be hard to give him a free pass because Aaron Judge is in that lineup too. This is one of the best dynamic duos since Batman and Robin.
A Lot of Great Players Are Unsigned
Baseball teams are using analytics more than ever. As a result, they have a better idea of when a player will decline, and what they really mean to a team. Many players, namely players devalued by the assessment, disagree with this new evaluation of their value. As a result, a lot of great players are unsigned this year.
Hyun-Jin May Return to Pre-Injury Form
Ryu was a great third pitcher for the Dodgers. He came over from South Korea in 2013, and he made a solid impact. However, he was derailed by a shoulder injury. Look for him to come back strong.
Watch the New Limit on Mound Visits
The MLB is pondering how they can speed up games. They decided limiting mound visits will help them achieve their ends. Now, you can only have six mound visits per game. This will definitely benefit hitters. Batting averages may go up this year.
The Dodgers Plumbing Broke
The Dodgers got off to an inauspicious start this week when their plumbing broke, leaking sewage all over. They had to cancel their preseason game, but they’ll be ready for the regular season. Will the return of Matt Kemp be the thing that gets them back to the World Series?
Every MLB Stadium Has Added More Netting
This makes the fans safer, but it makes it harder to see the field as well. Will this impact ballgame attendance?
