With less than a week until baseball games are once again being played down in Florida and Arizona as part of Major League Baseball’s annual Spring Training, the topics surrounding the coming season are growing by the day. March 1st is set to be the first of a month of matchups between teams in both the Cactus League and the Grapefruit League, and with them will inevitably come numerous takeaways and subsequent predictions regarding the 2016 regular season.
As a baseball fan, I myself have several predictions of my own for what I feel will unfold over the course of this season. Although some of those things will undoubtedly fail to come true, I still find it enjoyable to lay out some of my thoughts this time of year as to what’s to come. With that in mind, I thought I’d discuss a brief overview of what’s to come from this blog as the season inches closer over this final month.
Although a lot of the things I write about will be related to news that is impossible to foresee, the first post of the month is going to give the readers a chance to let their opinions be known. As I’ve done for the past several seasons, I’ll be uploading a post with polls that let you all vote for which team you feel stands the best chance at winning each division in 2016. It’s always fun to see what people from around the baseball world have to say regarding those polls.
Once that is up, I’ll be publishing a blog post revealing the players who are likely to reach a home run milestone in the coming season, which winds up being an interesting post to look at in order to see what to look forward to from some talented players in the year to come. In addition, I plan to publish two more interviews at some point in the first and last weeks of the month, with both of them being with really talented pitchers; as well as a post on my own predictions for each team individually, regarding their fate in the standings at season’s end.
However, while all of those posts are planned out, as previously stated, the majority of the things I write about in March will simply be about whatever is going on around baseball at that point in time. Like the coming season, anything can truly happen.
